Proof that wasting away my youth and beauty hasn’t even paid off professionally


Might be genetics sweetie :/

I wasted mine bartending before I got into advertising. I’m not sure there’s a right way to use it.


How exactly were you hoping for your youth and beauty to ‘pay off’ in this industry?


They weren’t supposed to pay off... just last longer


Everything is wasted in this industry


As opposed to “using it” to climb social strata beyond your station born?

You used it to make yourself a career.

And if you’re married and such, great. Hope it makes you happy.

If you’re single and happy, great too.

But if you’re *unhappy* now you have options.

Because you have a career.

That’s youth and beauty well spent.


You have. But it’s ok. Now is the good part.

Not necessarily “wellness & beauty” but in need of recommendations. I always clean my apartment, but I can’t keep my kitchen/living room from smelling like trash. I am convinced that it is my kitchen trash disposal and I’ve tried so many things to make it smell good (garbage disposal deodorizer, vinegar mixture, etc.). Any recommendations on how to keep my place smelling fresh? I am tired of using bath & body works products and candles.

I feel like my hair has really impacted my life, and this sounds dramatic I know. It’s just, my hair is like wavy/straight, and sort of thin, that it doesn’t fall well when not heat styled.

I just feel utterly not confident in my natural hair and I notife

I've been away from New York for the last 3.5 months and it's making me think I need to leave for good. The NY ad scene feels like it has a lot of greedy, vain, bitter, overworked and burnt out people, and I can see myself becoming one too.
