I’m participating in the 30 Days of Photographs III challenge hosted by Ziva and MikeWJ because, really, with 3 sons, a boyfriend, a full-time job, family and friends, I have nothing better to do with my time. True story.

Today’s prompt is lotion and it was all Ziva’s idea because she is an evil vixen. I mean, MikeWJ is the only person who could have thought of something so ridiculous. So blame Ziva. Because it’s all MikeWJ’s fault.

But on to today’s theme. I have invested in many a lotion, potion and cream that claims to do all sorts of wondrous things; from turning my skin into that of a baby’s bottom (although they never do specify if it’s a baby’s bottom with or without diaper rash), to giving me a luminous radiant glow that will attract men of the opposite sex and cause them to shower me with diamonds and emeralds and sapphires and really fast, shiny Italian sports cars.

Invariably, they all fail to deliver. Because no matter what essential and unessential oils they put in there, whatever plant droppings or vitamins or fruit and vegetable purée, nothing but nothing can stop the aging process. Nothing can stop those – oh yes, let’s call them fine – lines from appearing around the eyes or those deep creases from being permanently etched into the forehead.

But I have discovered the secret to getting rid of those awful wrinkles. And I’m willing to share it with you all. The answer is not lotion, or even make-up. The answer, simply, is bangs.

green eye, mascara, black hair, eyeliner, bangs

Artfully styled over the forehead and around the eye, bangs conceal those lovely signs of aging.

Unfortunately, they do nothing for bags and dark circles.
