There’s more to the Jenner Lip-Challenge Lie

Kylie-Jenner-Lip-Challenge-Lovebscott Hot news yesterday – Kylie Jenner confesses to using ‘lip fillers’ for plump pout as reported by countless media outlets.This from NY Daily News: Her insecurity reflected through her fans, who tried their best to mimic her new look through the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge, in which they suck on a shot glass or plastic cup for a few minutes to temporarily create the illusion of fuller lips, which are essentially engorged with blood. Some of Jenner’s devotees went so far they actually injured themselves. Well, over the last few weeks when Jenner shared with the world her apparent secret to full lips, a lot of people cared and quickly jumped on the bandwagon to try their hand at beauty. Latching on to a free way for the common gal to be as beautiful, maybe as popular, as Jenner. But apparently, her beauty secret was a lie –

A New Arrival

skinny Today is a big day around our house. Well – it’s sort of a big day. It will probably come and just like any other day. Because life goes on. Carpools are run. AP Exams are taken. College decisions are still blurred a bit by indecision. Dinner will likely be take-out. And I will probably forget be somewhere or call someone back or quite possibly pick someone up. All that’s regular around here. The not-so-regular is what makes today the tiniest bit special.

I’m just asking you to dial down the stress level that comes when you enter the picture. Is that possible? Listen, I love you. June (freedom from to-do’s) is just around the corner from you. And your name is so happy. Promising something on the other side of saying you, like “May I have another cupcake.” Would you like two? “Why yes I would.” Because, you’re pre-swimsuit. But May, can we just state the obvious? With you comes a certain amount of agony. And I don’t want to just live to get through to the other side of you. I want to enjoy your beautiful weather and linger and savor. But those words don’t normally accompany all that you bring to the table:

Mom: Codeword LOVE

Mom Some phone calls are fun. I embarrassed my kids, yet again (I think I’m on an embarrassing rampage) by calling in to 98.7 KLUV’s morning show on the way to school to play Rebekah’s College of Hollywood Knowledge. Lo and behold, I was the lucky caller that got to try her luck answering 5 pop culture questions to beat Rebekah and not only graduate from her college but win $100. Let’s just say, it’s easier to win when you’re playing along rather than being the player. (click HERE to listen – if you’re bored and have nothing better to do … but only after reading the rest of this post, for goodness sake :) I legitimately deserved the eyerolls on this one! But later that day, I got a not so fun phone call from my brother. “Mom has fallen. She’s at Mayo… she can’t
