I’m turning the big 3-0 this summer (gulp), and have decided to stop dreading the day. Why drag my feet? It’s going to happen whether I’m in a good mood or bad mood about it. So, I’ve decided to be in a good mood about it. And to help me get into a good mood I booked a little birthday getaway—to Barcelona, Spain! I know, I’m freaking! There are so many books to buy, so many beauty products to pack! Among those beauty products is one that’s going to be new to my regime: neck cream. See, I recently found out the only really effective way to prevent the sagging and wrinkling of your neck as you age is to start using a cream specifically formulated for your neck while you’re young. Face creams are not the same as neck creams, so I’m using Stivectin Neck Cream ($90). I know it’s steep, but most of the ones I found hovered around that price range. I figure it’s going to last me a while, and it’ll be worth it to prolong the turkey neck for another 30 years. Ugh, now I’m in a bad mood again. Gobble, gobble.
