January Jones Eats Own Placenta: Healthy or Ick?
Wowie wowie WOW! I just could not believe my eyes when I read this article from Yahoo.com yesterday! Actually, I heard it first on the way to work when I was driving. All I heard was “people eating the afterbirth for nutritional value”… I listened but didn’t know why they brought it up… now I know why. Click here for article.
January… you are one crazy South Dakotan Native gone Hollywood! But in all honesty…how crazy is she? I mean think about it… if eating placenta capsules magically made you lose 10 lbs…. or it cleared skin acne… or it helped to heal cancer or HIV… wouldn’t we all eat it? These are all things that people want and need and that is a very powerful thing. However, since eating placentas has not been found to advance a new mommy’s health in anyway since we are already healthy I think I am going to PASS on this one.
If you are down with new trends by all means gorge yourself to death… I’ll even help you with a website on “Placenta Recipes”… they have Roasted Placenta, Placenta Cocktails, Placenta Spaghetti, or you can dehydrate it to save for later on.
Subway Tile Back Splash
I have noticed during my OCD of the “HGTV channel that subway tile is the new decor trend in homes for 2012. I’m not really sold on this yet. Currently I think it looks ok, yea I could like it, but then I think to 10-15 years from now and think, “Man… people are going to think this was UGLY”! I know, I know… live in the NOW. I’m just not quite sold though. I do LOVE tile back splash, just not in the subway tile. What are you thoughts?
Missoni Fashion Trend Sells out in Minutes at Target
Remember these looks shown not too long ago on TV commercials for Target?
I remember seeing some of the first commercials and thinking to myself “ Cute shoes… not so cute lamp shades, blankets, and rugs. Flash back to the 60’s”. I am glad I did not rush to target to buy some of these items, they sold out in the matter of a day! Funny thing is that even with target selling out of these items I don’t really remember seeing too many people wearing these items. Do you? I work on a college campus so I would thinking that of all the people who would wear this trend it would’ve been the college students. Did you partake in the Missoni craze, if so what did you buy and would you wear it next fall?
Hair Feather Extensions
Seriously… not trying to offend anyone here but I never did understand this trend. Who started it? It’s really no different then when I was little and we did “Hair wraps.” Remember those… You were even cooler if you had the beads at the ends that clank together. I begged my mom at Disney World to let me have one.
I do think that they are really cute… that is for anyone who is not in a professional job. Once you hit 24 you really need to LET go of some of these trends… They may be cute but I guarantee you are getting the wrong types of looks.
What trends did you pass up so far in 2012?
What trends do you see emerging as we hit spring/summer?
Am I wrong in thinking to pass on all of the above?
I’d love to hear your comments!
