Ready ABout! BOTOX

Ready ABout! BOTOX

The other day I had lunch with a girlfriend and after enjoying the house salad and grilled oysters we had botox for dessert.

 

It was delicious.

 

I know this is disagreeable to many of you: that many believe any procedure to mask the effects of aging are disingenuous and evidence of superficiality.

 

I would like to respectfully disagree (through my plump full lips).

 

Let’s start by admitting to a few things, shall we?

 

We ALL participate.

 

If you brush your hair, wear a bra, manicure your nails, use moisturizer, wear make-up, wash your clothes, apply deodorant, swish with mouthwash, have an opinion about the cut of your jibΒ , blahblahblah…

 

… You are PARTICIPATING.

 

And don’t give me any crapola about the differences between health & hygiene and vanity.

 

It’s a slippery slope people and the pitch is slathered in spf sunscreen and BB cream.

 

My reasons for the occasional dabble are:

  • To appear attractive (duh).

  • To give the impression of health.

  • To counter balance all of the other physical ‘things’ that I can’t seem to get a handle on (THAT list is l-o-n-g).

  • And I’m intrigued with science (Which may sound a little lofty but these procedures do represent medical advancement).

 

So.

 

If a little nip-n-tuck, a needle prick, a laser light, a smidge of filler is not something you think you would do- so be it. I’m all aboard with your choice.

 

But my ship has already sailed…

 

And the weather is beautiful.

Ready About! BOTOX




  • Abby - Good for Cheryl! For now I’ll just frown upon the idea:) xx AbbyReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - Aahhhh sweet youth. You call me in 10 years and then we’ll talk. HahahaaaaReplyCancel

  • Tam Warner Minton - So many of us do botox! I do it when I remember to…which is sort of haphazardly.ReplyCancel

  • Diane Tolley - You go, girl! πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Carol Cassara - It is not my thing, girl! But then again, for my age I have so few wrinkles . On the other hand those marionette lines. But no. And actually, the idea of putting something IN my body seems a far cry from brushing, swiping, swishing, at least to me. But hey, that’s me.And then there’s the needle factor. Nah, not gonna happen here. But I’ll enjoy your youthful good looks from here!ReplyCancel

  • Lisa at Grandma's Briefs - Cheers to you for doing what makes you feel beautiful. I’ve not dabbled with botox… yet. Maybe never; maybe NOT never. Time (and increasing wrinkles) will tell.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - It’s not cheap but it IS kind of amazing. Now if I could only botox my brain and get relax THOSE wrinkles!ReplyCancel

  • Stacia Friedman - I totally agree! I got Botox in exchange for promoting a dermotologist. I even got a deep discount on an upper eyelid job. It’s ALL good!ReplyCancel

  • Doreen Mcgettigan - I haven’t done it yet but it will happen and soon! I was a smoker and have more wrinkles than I should and I don’t like them!ReplyCancel

  • Mari Collier - Oh, I’ll admit I am vain, just not vain enough to spend that much money. I don’t do nails either as nail polish peels off of my nails and the remover causes eczema. You can see where that would diminish any brief beauty on the hands. Creams and some make up yes, but others no. Once again it is called eczema. It takes all the fun out of doing a perfect makeup job.ReplyCancel

  • Lois Alter Mark - Hey, I’m all for anything that makes someone feel good about themselves. People should stop judging each other’s choices!ReplyCancel

  • Carolann Iadarola - I think that’s fab, and I’m so jealous! You go girl! I’m so tempted to try it…and now I think I just might have to treat myself. Maybe for the holidays πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Lynda@fitnessmomwinecountry - I have wanted to try Botox and just don’t have the nerve. Such a pansy, I am. Good for you, enjoy. Heck yeah we want to try anything to stay looking young, I purchase all kinds of skin products and get facials so why not the Botox?ReplyCancel

  • Joy Page Manuel - Kudos for your honesty, Cheryl! I watch a Real Housewives show (don’t judge) and two women were shown getting botox. Do you really get lumps on your face after?? It lookrd scary. I’m saying no for now but who knows right? To each his own πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Kimberly - Are you happy with the results? Do you think you’ll keep doing it? How will we find good doctors when we’re on our camper get away???ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - 1)I am always happy with the results, 2) until the day I die, and 3) a little tweek before we set off!ReplyCancel
