Weekly Capsule 30.2: Beauty RoutinePosted: July 28, 2015
Today’s outfit is super simple and doesn’t inspire any interesting writing, so I’m going to talk about something else. The other day, I just read on a style forum some comments criticizing a blogger for not having a pedicure. A pedicure, I tell you! To be fair, other commenters are quick to defend the blogger – the consensus is that the nails only need to be clean and healthy. But it got me thinking. Is that what you have to do to be presentable now? I’m not just talking about style bloggers; I mean everyday people too. Does every woman have to primp herself up from literal tips to toes before she can show herself lest the world recoils at her unpainted nails and bare face? Because I don’t. I’ve never even painted my nails. I don’t wear make-up, save for the occasional swipe of tinted lip balm. My hair takes less than thirty seconds to “style”. I’m not a slob, but I’m very much of the opinion that as long as your appearance is clean and tidy, you don’t need anything else.
This is not a dig at anyone who likes to put a lot of efforts into their appearances, you understand. I’m just kind of baffled that someone would expect such efforts from other people (or, more exactly, other women. Men don’t have to deal with that shit, do they?)
