Sometimes we have an idea. A great idea. But it's time hasn't come yet.

My agent and I had a great idea for a book on beauty tips.

For the longest, nothing would come to me. No real idea. I wrote a proposal and outline. We brainstormed. Still, nothing felt right.

Today on the way home from an appointment (where I was learning about anti-aging and make-up techniques) it hit me.

Women are interested in looking their very best. Some are willing to go further than others to do it. So I'm curious now. What are the stages, ages, and lengths to which any given woman would go? If she would or wouldn't do certain procedures, why or why not?

So here's my question: What do you do to make yourself appear the best and how far will you take it?

Please make sure to answer why or why not on any given procedure.

Are there procedures you think poorly of? What if money were no object, would you still think poorly of it? Think this one through carefully. Don't just give me a knee-jerk answer. I know we all want to make the world a better place...if you could do that and have something done to make you feel more confident and youthful, would you?

Thank you,

  1. The older I get, the more attractive Botox and plastic surgery become. Just when did those lines crop up anyway? At this point, I'm not ready to let someone shove a needle in and out of my face. Though the cost of my skincare products keeps going up:-)
    I don't think poorly of anyone who's had plastic surgery, unless they've taken it to an extreme, like Michael Jackson. You still have to be comfortable with yourself. If altering parts of your body makes you feel better about yourself, by all means.

  2. If money were no object, I would do the superficial things like botox and Restilin (?sp) (even though it looks so painful!). I'd also do those laser treatments for evening out skin tone. I'd do all those cool things that I see done on that show "Ten Years Younger." :) Oh, and I've already had my teeth bleached.

    But for me, the line would be drawn at surgery that could be risky at all. And it seems these days that infection is a big risk. I don't think many elective surgeries would be worth the risk.

    I think I would have an eyelift, though, because it can affect your vision. My dad has extremely drooped eyelids, and I think mine are going to take after his. I'll probably have to have that done someday. I just hope I don't end up looking perpetually surprised! LOL
