No, but try to relax a little, there's always botox, if you truly feel you need it someday ;) But, you're absolutely gorgeous! Have you been wearing the sexy, long curly wig in your profile pic?

It's this youth-obsessed culture we live in that makes us, women, a little crazy that we're perceived as over-the-hill once we hit 21. In France, a woman of a certain age is revered for her mature sensuality, or so I hear, perhaps, we could learn something from them.

Drink water and stay out of the sun. That's what I do, and it seems to work. I don't use creams, and just wash with moisturized soap. I'll find and post a great review on my art that an art critic wrote, mentioning wrinkles.

Here it is: "Get close to really see the grace and affinity of womanhood in [TallGirl’s painting]. The piece depicts a time when wrinkles were a coveted badge of wisdom, not a red flag to run for a Botox needle."

Some of this is funny, so serious. I would have to say that I really took notice of my teeth/smile and try to maintain that. I guess the energy taken away from "doing your hair" has to go somewhere ;)

Just last week I thought to myself, I should start taking better care of my skin. I went and bought myself some new skin cream! lol

aahhh come one, I thought they were laugh lines..... :-)
I do take care of my skin a lot better then I used to. Also wear more eye makeup.....of course not having any eyelashes is probably the cause of that.....but I have noticed that I play them up more now that I wear scarves and hats.

I love my makeup! There's nothing like red lipstick to brighten a girl (or woman) right up!
