Can't miss the mascara goop!

Painted lips, poker straight hair and really low slung jeans (with something pink peeking out), long lashes (and if you look carefully, you can't miss teh mascara goop)...

I don't know how every other girl is looking like every other girl these days.
This morning me and a friend of mine (Ekta) were talking about girls, in the train ... the girls who are always are 'oh so prim and propper'.. those who are so delicate that they can't take the heat, the cold, nothing. The ones who look visibly uncomfortable in the trains( even though they've travelled in them since 10 years or more, surprisingly THEY'VE still not got used to that!!) ..

Ever noticed how very few people smile in the trains in the morning. they've got these grumpy faces like they've been screwed by the whole damn world and they're making faces at those in front of them thinking "my sweat is smells definately better than hers!!"

I have observed several times and trust me it's true... MOST girls in bandra have a t shirt which says 'VON DUTCH'. I've seen more than four women on a single day wearing a t that says that or carrying a bag that says that... (if you want one yourself, you can check out hill road shops/road side stalls..and can get a good bargain on them too!!)
I'm not saying that it is nice to look shabby or better still, 'dress like a man'.
But girls, BE NORMAL.

Seriously, batting your psuedo eyelashes will not make you look smart and yea sitting the whole day on your ass and applying layers of make up won't help either. (it might get you some dumb man to run behind that same ass though!!)

Me and a friend (Diana) were once talking about how women are getting sucked up into creating an image of themselves.. an image which is 'just not them'. How they think it's cute to be dumb. and how they're tryign so hard to 'Dumb' themselves these days.

Also, it's amazing how teenage girls aren't looking like teenage girls at all. I remember my mom never allowed me to wear lipstick when i was that young! i had to be happy using glittery pink 'Lip smackers' or something that smelled fruity enough to temp me and keep me happy. No nail paint either, cause she said only college goign girls can do all that... (and i'm glad she didn't let do all of that...cause atleast i could be like a child and run around and mess up my clothes and not worry about anything!)

And it's really not cute when little girls these days knows that Mac is not just mispronounced nick for Mc Donalds, it's also a cosmetic brand!!!

*I just want to inset a line here from a song that i really like...

hey chots! welcome to the blog world!!! Pink! humm do you actually like this colour? anyway. ye i do agree on this part. it is so difficult to find that chweet kinda innocence in children nowadays. they r so well informed, they r so concious of fashion, need be they cud give us some valuable tips :) well as for the women, ye it is kinda weird when women who have been using the public transport for years together, keep complaining about the heat, the sweat, the crowd, the stink...over and over again. regardless of how many layers of make -up you apply, if you have a wretched heart, you'll look ugly anyway :)
