Dear 14 year old Pretty Lashes.....

  • That boy you lust over so crazily will NEVER grow taller than 5'5, he is now into credit card fraud and he never did grow into his ears...
  • Your mom was right, the people who laughed are you because of your glasses and the way you dressed were just jealous
  • Who knew Purple and Orange will be called colour blocking in 2011?
  • Life isn't that complicated; I wish you'd smile more
  • Food is not the enemy, its OK to eat more than  700 calories in a day
  • Your eyebrows are the business, don't get tweezerman happy.
  • Embrace your obsession with Sisqo, it will continue well into your 20's
  • You don't look like Brandy, quit with the braids.
  • That boobage you're hating on right now will be the envy of alot of girls on a few years.
  • You will kiss a few frogs along the way but your prince charming; Mr Lashes is waiting for you.

Lots of Love,

xxPretty Lashesxx

I got the idea for this from Glamour Magazine's December edition. If you could go back in time to tell yourself something, what will it be?


  1. Lovely post, especially the part about people hating on you... happens quite a lot but shouldn't affect you in any way. I'd probably tell myself that, if I could go back in time.

  8. I love this... I think the majority of these apply to me too but also 'don't ever cry over somebody who wouldn't cry over you.'

    I may have to steal this... Don't worry, will let people know who I stole it from!
