Face Value

Am at an age like a lot of  women where am noticing every little wrinkle or line on my face and moaning about it every five minutes,  having it hammered home (by my obsessed mind) that am not getting any younger  . . . as the irritating saying goes.

However, after seeing this story it puts things into perspective, and I can tell you now,  I won’t be too hard on myself as I now appreciate that things could be worse . . .  much worse .

The lady above is 23 year old Nguyen Thi Phuong, a Vietnamese woman who has aged about 50 years in a matter of days due to some mystery illness. Her face and body is a vessel of saggy skin.

Apparently this condition was triggered by an allergic reaction to seafood. I really feel for her,  and so glad her husband has remained by her side. It has been said she has a condition known as lipodystrophy and unfortunately there is no cure. I wish her the best and hope there is something that can be done in the future.

On the other side of the counter we have the Korean woman Hang Mioku, so addicted to plastic surgery that after running out of money decided to inject cooking oil into her face with dire consequences. I know what you’re thinking . . . cooking oil!!!

She found a doctor who supplied her with silicone to self inject – sad but true. After she ran out of funds she turned to cooking oil as a desperate measure.

I really do believe some of these individuals who persistently seek cosmetic surgery need psychotherapy, for some, it spirals out of control and becomes obsessive. Perhaps not too much of a problem for those with the $$$ but dangerous for those without as the above illustrates.

Hang Mioku went from this . . .

to this . . .

After seeing the error of her ways, Hang would simply like her old face back.

Moral of this story . . .  the grass isn’t always greener  . . .

Naughty, Naughty Ryan

Ryan cutting a dashing figure

Well, Well, Well, the naughty married international footballer who allegedly  had an affair with Imogen Thomas , is the one and only Manchester United play Ryan Giggs. No-one in the UK was permitted to say his name because he had effected a Super Injunction, but it was the worst kept secret.

Now when I heard that a Super Injunction had been effected, I thought, game over we will never know. But as Ryan found out the hard way this wasn’t the case.

The injunction could only be enforced in the UK, so the international newspapers  had a field day, and were citing his name like there was no tomorrow.  Moreover, Twitter jumped on the bandwagon, rife with jokes like;

Imogen Thomas is starting a singing career, she will be doing giggs in Manchester.

We have all seen Imogen in the papers, on TV  with a face like a smacked ar*e because of the gagging order. Well you can sigh with relief now Imogen and remove that gag, thanks to Liberal Democrat John Hemming who cited Parliamentary privilege for citing Ryan’s name.

Am not here to cast any stones, am just happy to have a story to pop in my Naughty, Naughty category. What I will say is this, those Super Injunctions are a bloody waste of money 🙂

Wonder what attracted him to  Imogen . . .  🙂

I have seen it all now. I make no bones about how I hate the children pageants, not so much the essence of it  but how the children are caked in make-up, and I must admit my dislike  goes deeper than that.

If you watch any of the documentaries you can see how devastated the children are if they don’t get in the top three and the impression of worthlessness they feel,  thanks to their pushy mothers, who consider beauty to be caked in layers of make-up.

Psychological warfare in my arrogant opinion. Let children be children for crying out loud.

My dislike of beauty pageants has gone up to dizzy levels after seeing these horrific images.

Yes ladies and gents this is a mother injecting her eight year old daughter Britney with botox, because when Britney smiles there are “wrinkles” and she applies for beauty pageants, and that woudn’t do. WTF.

The mother claims she only gave it to her daughter because she asked for it after witnessing her administering it.   Moreover she refers to her supplier as a “behind the scene” doctor – say no more. Another term for yester years backstreet doctors, in my opinion.

Mummy Dearest

Apparently, the mother is being investigated by the San Francisco authorities. I think it’s the men in the white coats who need to get involved here. This is not an isolated case, she got the idea from other pageant mothers.

Do you really want your child saying this?

‘My friends think it’s cool I have all the treatments and they want to be like me. I check every night for wrinkles, when I see some I want more injections. They used to hurt, but now I don’t cry that much.’

The article below outlines other other areas of concern when injecting a young child.

Another Film Remake.

The 70's Sweeney duo John Thaw and Dennis Waterman

Yes ladies and gentleman there is going to be a film remake of  the British seventies TV Series The Sweeney. I bet it was before the time of some of you readers.  I can vaguely remember it, as I was about ten years old.

What I do remember is Detective Inspector Regan (played by the late great actor John Thaw) was one mean son of a gun and  rightly so too. None of this abiding by red tape from my man when you have flouted the laws of the land. You knew about it when you had the no – nonsense a*rse kicking Regan on your case.

Normally, I yawn, when I hear  of  remakes, since more often than not, the actors, actresses  cast in these iconic roles are pale comparisons to the originals.

Jude Law in Alfie was no match for Michael Caines depiction, and most recently Russell Brand as Dudley Moores, Arthur. What was that all about? I have not watched the latter but am canny enough to know it wouldn’t work.

Ray Winstone is set to play Regan , and I have to say, I think it is genius casting.

I couldn’t think of anyone better to play the role. He looks the part and we all know the Sexy Beast actor is more than capable of  carrying it off.  Ray had misgivings about playing the role, but after reading the script he was impressed. Well it’s a thumbs up for me.

Incidently, he did have a small role in the Sweeney as a teen.

See this little clip of him chatting about the forthcoming remake ( just click on the relevant icon to fill your screen)

In the meantime, I shall leave you with the 1970’s Sweeney opening theme. The music score is so iconic,  you think only of the Sweeney when you hear it.

Adult Children – Urgh

Suri Cruise sporting a pair of heels.

I may be old fashioned but I hate all this treating children like adults, letting them rule the roost and dictate. Let children be children.

I know it’s each to their own and it would be a boring old world if we were all the same, but I really cringe at children  (and am talking five year olds) sporting lipstick and high heels. If it is playtime at home, then fine but out in the town centre, shudders.

Am one of those women who hate the child beauty pageants where children are caked in make-up. To me they look like demonic dolls. I don’t mind the pageants perse, but children caked in makeup! No! No! No! in my books.

Red lippy!

Even those that don’t look like demonic dolls, I don’t see the appeal of making them look about twenty years older – vile in my humble opinion.


Anyway enough of my moaning. Have you all enjoyed the Royal Wedding or have you been bored to F*?

Have a good week-end y’all.
