Uuuuuuuuuum. There are moments in life when I feel as old as these here hoary hills (IDK, I mean, I’m in Times Square so who knows WHERE this is going…). Moments like when I realize that human people that are the same age as sweaters I own (yes, they’re still cute and not pilly, STOP JUDGING) can buy cigarettes. It’s the same feeling I got when I learned that the offspring of recording artists and actors are well on their way to BUYING AND SELLING ME due to their own monumental successes in their respective careers. Now, before you go on giving yourselves aneurisms from rolling your eyes super hard due to these kids (yes, they are CHILDREN as far as I’m concerned *pulls wooly blanket closer around shoulders*) getting a leg up in life having sprung from celebrity loins, I’m only going to direct your attention to the OTHER MANY MANY train wrecks who are born to important people whose elevated stations ending up hurting them. Aaaand to stop hating because it is a damned waste of time. I can make declarative statements such as these. I am 1 MILLION YEARS OLD. Anyway, enough… on to the youth.

+ A crazy quotable style philosophy (a gem from the article above): “In L.A., every girl I know has a stylist who just puts them in whatever they can beg, borrow, or steal and shoves them out on the red carpet, but that’s not me. Except for very special occasions, I usually do my own hair and makeup and buy what it is I’m wearing and I’m comfortable with that. At the end of the day, you have to own up to what it is you’re putting on. So what if someone doesn’t like it? At least I won’t ever feel like the clothes I have on are wearing me.”
