A few weeks ago, I had one of those moments when I realized I was too old for something. Not because I felt "old", but because I knew better thanks to my age. Inspired, I decided to write a fun post on things I just didn't tolerate anymore.
Since blogging is such a great way to share ideas and stories, I decided to reach out to one of my fave ladies to possibly start a blogger chain. So, today, none other than the smart, inspirational and beautiful Georgina from Notes on Lifestyle by Georgina is participating. Be sure to head over to her blog for more light-hearted wisdom!
So here it is. If you are 21, I hope you find this helpful. You will get there. Trust me.
Things I am too old for:
Jut because Lea Michele is telling you to buy it, doesn't mean she is actually using it.
As I get older, I know there are small changes that I can make to my routine that would definitely make a difference in the long run. Switching to a good shampoo is one of them. Crappy shampoo damages the hair. Yes, I'm talking about Pantene and friends. Basically anything you can get at your local Rite Aid. They really do nothing positive to your hair. My hairstylist cringes by the mere utter of these brands. When you are out next time, walk into Sephora and get something good.
Fake Designer Anything
Just because the pattern looks similar, doesn't mean that your GOACH bag looks fashion forward.
I remember when I was 19 and I went to NYC to visit my aunt for Thanksgiving. My cousin made me go to Chinatown with her because she knew a friend of a friend of friend that had gone to this tiny little secret store to get a "truly authentic-looking Louis". Entering that little vault gave my heart palpitations. I don't know if it was the fear of being locked in there forever (because, trust me, NO ONE would have found us) or the dozens of fake bags wrapped in plastic that made me say, NEVER AGAIN. The next time you see me with a Chanel bag, yes, it will be real.
Just because your friends are going to a rave in Red Hook, at 4am, doesn't mean it's a good idea.
Well duh. Right? In college, going out until 5am wasn't crazy, it was the norm. Actually, I could have done better considering I went to school in New Orleans and last call didn't exist. Not to mention hangovers lasted a few hours instead of a full day (like they do now). But no, thank you, I kinda like my mornings now and fully taking advantage of the weekend. I like waking up, making breakfast, and doing what adult women do. Errands and shopping. And watching HGTV.
If you are a blogger and in your late 20s+, feel free to take this theme and write your own post. Please, if you do, do link back to my blog. Would love to read them.
Now...Things I will never be too old for? Way too many. One day I'll write them down.
