My (not so) Subtle Birthday Present Wish List

Published February 11, 2013 by The Feminist

In exactly one month I will be 22 years old. Yes, you’ve read that correctly: twenty-two (!!) years old.

Some of you may think this is still very young but others might say I’m getting too old to write a blog about sexy men…

Well SCREW those who believe I shouldn’t be discussing the Ryan Goslings of this planet! Because I am young! So let’s set the world on fire! I can burn brighter than the sun!
Now, before you start thinking: “OMG, did she just quote “We are Young” by FUN.?” Let me remind you that they won a couple of Grammy Awards last night, so I’m allowed to -no scratch that- I MUST use their lyrics! 😉

But let’s focus on what birthdays are really about: PRESENTS! 😉

Who doesn’t like drawing up wish lists, right? I have to say that I’m not very subtle when it comes to dropping hints. Let me give you an example to illustrate:

Me: Did you hear about that new restaurant X? I would love to go there sometime…

Mom: Uhu?

Me: Pretty expensive, though. Maybe for a special occasion?

Mom: Aha, I see where you’re going!

See? Not very subtle, I know. (I’m about as subtle as a gun!)Some things will simply never change so I hereby state that I really really really like Yves Saint Laurent’s new perfume “Manifesto”. Not only does it smell absolutely delicious (duh!), I also find the whole campaign with Jessica Chastain and the purple paint very alluring. Don’t you think Jessica looks breathtaking? Makes you wonder whether you will look like her if you wear the perfume… Probably not, but a girl can hope 😉 ( Or should I say “woman”, since I’m turning 22. )

Oh, and by the way, did I mention I’m running out of perfume? Just saying…

“The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.” ~Yves Saint-Laurent

Never underestimate the power of makeup, dear readers! I know that people keep going on and on about natural beauty, but sometimes women just aren’t blessed with a perfect skin or breathtakingly beautiful Audrey Hepburn eyes. That is just the way it is. We simply have to acknowledge that most women aren’t perfect. We should find the strength to cherish our imperfections, because these imperfections are the cornerstones of being real. Real women realize that their flaws are the essence of beauty. (Think about that, Ladies!)

Makeup is my way of embracing my imperfections. Most people believe makeup helps you to conceal your imperfections. However, it is first and foremost a way of personal expression. My outside resembles how I feel on the inside. My makeup represents who I am.
And yeah, I am a bit of an oddball, so there is NO WAY IN HELL that my makeup will ever be “natural”!
Just deal with it!

And by the way, the new makeup trends for this season are BOLD and FABULOUS! (So you have no excuse 😉 )

” I’m not kissing you with that shit on your lips!”

" I'm not kissing you with that shit on your lips!"

One of my best friends told me she never wears red lipstick because her boyfriend thinks it’s ugly.

Oh come on!

I mean, what a myth! Boys  –those who don’t even recognize elegance when it hits them in the face-  may indeed think that girls wearing red lipstick

a) are trying too hard to impress

b) look like a circus act

But real men – those who do appreciate a touch of femininity- are DRAWN to red lips. Red is possibly the sexiest colour on this planet ( the colour of passion and love!) and wearing red lipstick signals that you are proud of being a woman and more importantly, it makes men think of kissing.

In short, red lips are dynamite! And if your boyfriend disagrees, well frankly, you should just dump the asshole.
