A very UN-glossy look at popular culture... and whatever else takes my fancy.

"Oh darling, don't worry about shoving needles and toxins in your skin! It happens to us all at some point!"

Have you seen that Olay advert where they describe the product as being "for women who are not yet ready for cosmetic injections"? As if surgery is some kind of inevitable rite-of-passge for women, like the menopause or that first grey hair.

Although, after watching Nicky Hamblingham-Wotsit on that god-awful "Burn Your Skin Off and Rip Your Teeth Out and Then You Might Look 2 Years Younger Than Your Real Age But Never Actually a Whole 10 Years, Even Though We Called This Programme 10 Years Younger" and the way they throw surgical procedures at women with no discussion on the physical dangers or moral issues, much like a child throwing bird feed to pigeons, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is the case already.
