So I recently saw something on TV that reminded me of a topic I have been meaning to discuss forever. Celebrities.

One time while watching a movie with my older, wiser, and beautiful sister, I complained that I was just so ugly compared to insert celebrity of choice. I don't even remember which one it was, but I often find myself falling short of the beauty of the stars. My sister replied with, "if you had all the help she has, you would look that glamorous too." It made me think.

Since then I have preached that attitude. If we all had a personal stylist, makeup artist, trainer, personal chef/dietitian, and everything else along with the money to fund it all...chances are we would all be perfectly glamorous. Well, recently this article proved me right. Jennifer Aniston reportedly spends $8000 a month maintaining herself. Talk about help? She has it. 

Now I am not judging Jenifer (though like she'd care if I did). If I had her bank account I wouldn't mind dropping some serious cash on self preservation. But the next time you feel blah compared to the rich and famous, remember they aren't doing it alone, or on a budget. It is not realistic for us normal folks. So don't get down. You are beautiful. Sounds cliche but it is a strong belief of mine. No matter what, you are beautiful. 

Pamper yourself sometimes, and make the best of what you have. Everyone deserves to feel glamorous, but more importantly, everyone deserves to FEEL beautiful.
