Paranoia

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 19 - 2010

Ooooh I’ve just clicked ‘schedule’ on my WordPress dashboard to setup that last Beauty Blender post so that it ‘goes live’ at exactly 9.37am on this (probably grey) Friday morning… and I’m sat here fretting.

“Did that last post actually SAY anything?”

“Do I contribute to society in any way, shape or form?”

“Is my blog a big waste of disk space on the interwebz?”

“Should I shave my arm hairs before the next swatching session?”

“They’ll never get back the 3 minutes it took them to read that.”

.

And then it hit me… like a booming voice coming down from the heavens.

I’m having fun.  Can we play with some blusher next?

Oh and go check out Secret Diary of a Beauty Addict too today, cos she bought me a McDonald’s chocolate milkshake last night.  She’s the best.

    Aww bless thanks hun! No worries at all – you gave me an amazing Benefit gift so I have more milkshakes to pay back I think! thanks for the lift home too xxxx

  3. After that person’s comment on Sam’s blog I actually contemplated shaving my arms and I did tweeze my eyebrows – though not because they told me to, but because they were looking a right mess XD I dont even post my eyebrows in my EOTDs, it takes up too much room.

    Their comment made me so self conscious though 😐

  4. No no no!I Just read ‘that’ comment on ‘that’ article and realised what you were talking about. ‘That’ comment has made me MORE cross than the original article. I love the fact that Beauty Bloggers are real women, who aren’t the perfect dolls presented by the media. Real people with real skin and crap fingernails like mine. OK some of you are drop dead gorgeous…that doesn’t actually stop me reading your blogs=) but I hope you get what I’m saying. Beauty Bloggers are a breath of fresh air… We’re not perfect and don’t pretend to be. Keep it up girls! x

    THE LOLZ! YOO GIVZ ME DEM.

    Honestly, who gives a shit any more?

    Lol!! I was contemplating a very similar post for my blog, after I’ve just inspected all my EOTD pics for stray hairs and sorted out my wayward cuticles!

    Actually I just dont care. If we wanted ‘perfect’ representations, we’d only look in magazines. *Tosses Lipglossiping a lipstick to coo over*

    also, I read the last linf “Oh and go check out Secret Diary of a Beauty Addict too today, cos she bought me a McDonald’s chocolate milkshake last night” – emmm no I didn’t!! But that’s not my blog (my old blog name was diaries of a makeup addict which isn’t even similar – think I need a nap)

    Dude – I actually felt my heart rate accelerate as I was writing today’s Eve Lom post – my first review since The Article.

    I’ve also been agonising over the wording of my counter hygiene post – was it pointless, did it seem to be denigrating a certain kooky US brand? Am I in fact a useless waste of space?

    And then I remembered the hours wasted worrying about what bitchy girls would say about me in high school. And then I remembered that I’m 28. And then I posted.

    If we are to be part of “The Media”, we probably will have to accept that bitching and criticism will occur. And we have to remember what we are here for and why we do this, and with that resolve, keep going. Which you are doing. So. Good work. Keep it up. Etc.

    As for shaving arm hairs etc. – the character who wrote that comment needs to have a colonic done on her freaking soul and get all the poison flushed out of her horrible mind-pipes.
