"Aging sucks," according to Charla Krupp, author of How Not to Look Old
. I can't thank Charla enough for publishing this boomer manifesto! When I started The Haute Dawg blog, which morphed into girl-woman-beauty-brains-blog
, I didn't have a clue as to what I was doing or where I was going with my "hobby." I didn't have a background in html or xhtml or SEO or meta tags, or for that matter, fashion or beauty RX. All I had was my 53 years of experience as a girl, woman, wife, mom, and professional business woman navigating the world and collecting experiences like an curator of the Louvre Museum. What I was looking for was a voice just like Charla's :
- We’re not going to grow old gracefully (or gratefully).
- We’re not going to celebrate our wrinkles (you’ve got to be kidding).
- We’re not going to join the Women Who Have Had Too Much Work Done club (like our mothers and their friends).
- We’re not going to look old.
I read the book over the weekend and will post the most impressive tips and tricks tomorrow. BUT if I were one of 78 million boomers, which I am, I would run out this morning and purchase this boomer bible.
