    Kids. They sure have a way with words sometimes, don't they? On the one hand, they keep us on our toes and in a way, they also help keep us young.

    But then there are those times when something so outrageous comes out of their mouths that ultimately reminds us that we're most definitely not cool anymore. As in we're washed up. Aging. OLD.

    In fact, just the other day, my son discovered one of those Viewmaster slide viewers in my mom's basement -- and he's been mesmerized by the damn thing ever since. He's so obsessed that he told me he wants to "start collecting vintage items ... from the 1980s."

    (Are you freakin' kidding me? I think I just found another gray hair.)

    Celebrities are always beautiful. It's part of what draws us to them. They don't always have to be stereotypically gorgeous, but they are all lovely or handsome in their own jaw-dropping way. People's annual Most Beautiful edition celebrates the hotties who dwell not-quite-among us. I'm sure you've gotten in more than a few debates with your friends over who makes their infamous list.

    This year they're trying something different. And by different, I mean ... slightly weird but in the best possible way. They took a page from Oscar Wilde's Picture of Dorian Gray and brought it to life. To celebrate all 20 of their 'most beautiful' cover models, they photoshopped them as they look today posed beside younger versions of themselves. What's craziest to me about this gallery is that almost across the board, the stars look better now than they did when they were younger.

    When it comes to skincare, I have good intentions, but, well ... I'm kind of lazy. I mean, I'm sometimes lazy; other times just plain exhausted from my day. However, I'm not getting any younger, so I've been working to make sure I don't flake out too often on my skincare routine.

    Here are some of my tips and tricks for taking care of your skin without spending a lot of time and effort ... from one lazy girl to another!

    Could someone please help me? I've gone temporarily blind from seeing something I didn't want to see this morning. Something my brain is desperately trying to forget. What was it again? Oh no, I remember now: Oh God -- it's the sight of Cher wearing glitter heart pasties. I would tear out my eyeballs now, but it's clearly too late. The damage is done. 

    Cher wore bright red, sequined, heart-shaped pasties in a performance for her "Dressed to Kill" tour. DRESSED TO KILL INDEED. This was just one of many eye-stabbing costumes the 67-year-old matron of glam wears in her show, including something that looks like her "Turn Back Time" strappy bondage bodice. Do you dare feast your eyes on Cher with glitter heart boobs? Do you?!?

    I'm no skinflint when it comes to spending money on beauty and skin care products, and I've had more than a few facials in my time, but holy moly people! This latest celebrity facial craze is really beyond.

    Supermodel Bar Refaeli posted a photo of her face covered in gold goo to her Instagram account the other day. Guess what she was up to ... and how much it costs?

    Let's take a looksie, shall we?

    Jennifer Aniston recently was dishing about her supposed "beauty secrets." Clearly we all want to know what they are. I mean, the woman has flawless skin and her hair is without parallel. I kind of hate her for it. I know she probably works mad hard to attain that level of perfection. She's a well-documented doer of yoga, and as a celebrity, she's got the dollars and the access to loads of treatments that most of us common, wrinkle-having folks will never be able to indulge in. 

    But now she's talking about what she thinks makes for the best beauty products. And what she's selling, I ain't buying. I mean this both literally and figuratively. Jen's a spokesperson for Aveeno cosmetics, so it makes sense that she'd be schilling their stuff. I happen to like Aveeno for the same reasons Jen claims to: Simple ingredients and a reasonable price.

    This past winter really wreaked havoc on my skin (and my mind, but that's a topic for another day!). Between the frigid temperatures outdoors and the dry heat indoors, I feel like I've become part alligator! Now that it's officially spring, I'm all about treating my skin to a little pampering and rejuvenation. I think it's necessary not just for my looks, but for my sanity!

    These are some of the products I've been loving ...

    At 30, I was pretty sure that I'd gotten my issues with self-esteem under wraps. I started losing weight, eating right, and working out. I got a haircut that works for me. My skin is currently in that happy place between acne and wrinkles and I can successfully apply eye-liner without accidentally making it look like I've been day-drinking for roughly eight weeks. I'm a step away from reciting self-love affirmations in the mirror when I wake up. 
    But my recent foray back into the world of contact lenses called all that confidence into question. You see, I haven't worn contacts on a daily basis since I was in my 20s. While it's not as though I'm now a haggard old crone (shout out to the #crones, yo!) one thing has changed.
    I've got really puffy, dark, under-eyes. And I can't NOT see them. With glasses on, I can hide from them, but with contacts in, they are all I see. I'm trying not to let vanity get the best of me. But it isn't working.

    Not too long ago, I turned 40...

    I was telling a friend that I'd be willing to trade in my Gen X status for that of a 30-year-old hipster who wears black-rimmed glasses (for statement, not vision, purposes). Then, I'd never have to admit that I spent the Saturday nights of my childhood hoping beyond hope that Charo would be the surprise guest on The Love Boat or that somehow, Shari and Lambchop would find themselves in an eerie episode of Fantasy Island where Shari was the puppet. (What, I'm the only one who wished for that story line? I think not.)

    No, I wouldn't know a lot of things like, the pain of seeing Chachi marry Joanie or the name of my first Cabbage Patch Kid or the "awesome" effects of Sun-In, had I not been a poster child for Generation X. Things like this:

    We already knew most women in America would give a pinky toe to have Jennifer Aniston's perfect beach hair, sun-kissed smooth skin, and rockin' bod -- especially at 45. But now comes word that an equally gorgeous A-list movie star envies her too ... and is going to great lengths to cop Jen's look. The alleged actress: None other than Julia Roberts! Whaaat?!

    Yes, the gossip hounds (which, come on now, seem to be fueled far too frequently by sexist stories about famous lady feuds) over at Radar Online claim that Julia "has developed a bit of an obsession with Jennifer, especially in the looks department." Ha, okaaaay? Apparently, because "they are close in age," Julia "wants a makeover along the lines of what Jen has had in the last year and to get same raves on the red carpet as her fellow A-list star."
