Would Helen approve?

.

In my new series How Can Anyone Read This Trash? I continue with highlights of this month’s issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, the gift subscription that keeps on giving.

Lip Flip?

.

.

I’ll flip an omelette, and I might flip you the bird… but I won’t be flipping my upper lip. Nope. Not happening.

.

.

Next up is a section on eye makeup trends we are encouraged to try. And while the Cleopatra flower is odd, it has nothing on this one…

.

.

Seriously?

It’s no wonder this country is going to Hell in a handbasket.

.

.

Proof positive this generation is a bit too in love with themselves.

.

.

And while I know Cosmo’s founder was quite forward thinking for her day when it came to sex and the single girl…

.

.

The modern Cosmopolitan takes it to a whole new level… which makes me wonder if even Helen would approve.

  1. No Helen would not approve, all of the items in Cosmo are stupid ideas that are targeted towards millennial girls/women who grew up in the age of social media. For us who are a bit, ahem, sophisticated, and grew up void of social media, selfies, weird makeup trends scoff at the ideas in Cosmo. I’m Gen-X damn it, I don’t wear flowers in my lashes! lol

    1. I’m at the very tail end of the boomers… and while I embraced stupid trends when I was young (grunge anyone?) I never glued plants on my face. I smoked a few, but that’s another blog entirely.

      1. Well you and me both, smoked a few “herbs” in our day. But I’d never try any of the ideas in Cosmo. I too was gifted a subscription, and when I’ve had a couple of Cayman Jack Margaritas, I read through it for the laughs….
