Middle Aged?



While in New York on Monday I made some time for a little shopping. (BIG SURPRISE) I had a Saks Fifth Avenue gift certificate from my boss that I decided I would use to replenish my cosmetics that had run out. My first stop was at the Laura Mercier counter to purchase my eye cream that I had been out of for about 6 months. I figured it was something to help combat the dry climate that I live in. When I asked for the eye cream I have been using for the past 3 years, the gentleman behind the counter looked me and said, "Well I think that you should really be using our anti-aging formula that helps with lines, wrinkles and dark circles." My first thought was, "Are you kidding do I really look like I need a cream that does all that?" When I hesitated he then said, "All women in their mid 30's need a cream like this." Wow, he thinks I am already in my mid 30's, I didn't have the guts to tell him that I am only 33! So here is what I walked away with! I am sure that within weeks you will all notice how quickly my wrinkles and dark circles have disappeared!

That is hillarious. I need the same cream, to ward off the botox and restalin as long as possible.

Oh No! I'm middle aged? I turn 36in a few weeks!!! Once when I was in NYC, I succombed to an eye make-up make-over in Saks--leaving there looking "fabulous". I went and looked at the make-up counter in Henri Bendel not even 30 minutes later, to be told by the salesperson she could really do "something nice" for my eyes. My bubble was burst.
Apparently 6 weeks was far too long to go without the original cream;)

You don't look mid 30s, the guy just said to get scare you into buying it.

But speaking of anti-agin, last night my friend invited me over to her house for a skin care night, but when I showed up, turns out it was a BOTOX party! We all sat around and people would go up and have a DR inject the botox! Crazy, right? I didn't do it by the way!

Sorry, but I had to laugh. If it makes you feel any better I, your younger 28 year old sister, was called an older woman last week. By looking at your blog I realized I was a little behind. Made up for lost time uh? Love ya.

Too funny. I noticed the wrinkles encroaching around my eyes with my last pregnancy. It was the first time I looked at myself and noticed that I had aged. It was depressing. Perhaps I should order some of your cream!
