A little while ago I stumbled across this picture on Tumblr... Apparently it was an advertisement pulled from a New York newspaper in the early 1950's..
It not only made me smile, but it also gave me a bit of food for thought... I often wonder whether why the mindset around body image has been altered in the past few decades. Why are women obsessed with being thin to the point of being unhealthy? And why is that attractive?
The diet crazed plastic surgery obsessed messages being broadcast in the media are disgusting, which is why I generally choose not to read such garbage as 'celeb' news or watch MTV. I'm much happier without that rot & I'd much prefer to keep my curves that be mistaken for a pre-pubescent boy, thank you very much!
As I question that niggling urge to 'lose a few kilos', I am inspired to take a look at some modern curvaceous screen sirens & entertainment icons to ensure that I'll bake my cakes and eat them too this year.
