Sex and the City 2

Girls, I’ve been crazy getting my book ready for publication! The book, which is the first in three, chronicles my journey to the top of the lipstick pyramid and all the life drama that accompanied me on the way up! I’m 19-years-old on page one, ending with me at age 39.  If you ever want intensive therapy, writing a book about yourself should be a definite option. The number of Beauty Witches trying to keep me down and the incredible number of “Mr. Rights” I sent packing caused some major reflection last night, while I was using my Clarisonic cleansing brush (www.clarisonic.com) with Lancome’s Absolue Premium Bx foamcleanser

Harvey HelmsI stopped and looked at my face. With the book fresh on my mind, I thought, “I look pretty good to be almost 50, with all I’ve been through in my life.” 

Would I want to be 30 again? No! Would I like to have the 28 inch waist again? Yes!

While I’m on the subject, I must get something off my chest! Sex and the City 2! I love those girls who are now full fledged women! Since I am the new up and coming gay Carrie Bradshaw, I took offense to the age jokes that dominated all the film reviews. Now the plot was a little crazy, but the main emphasis of the reviews was on how girls are ready for assisted living. And Ricky Gervais used his time hosting the Golden Globes to poke even more fun of them. What? Just like you, I didn’t miss an episode with advice on how to handle dating, careers and relationships. These fabulous beauties have gotten older. So what?! What’s wrong with us?

Now don’t get me wrong, my column focuses on how to be your best including keeping father time at bay. Does that mean I should make Kim Kardashian my new hero because she’s young? That would be a polite, “No.”
