today’s post is a bit of a departure from my typical style, health & wellness, or beauty post. but there’s a fun video trending on YouTube called the assumptions video. so i asked my YouTube and Instagram audience what their assumptions were about me. enquiring minds want to know, and i answered your assumptions about Style at a Certain Age.
it’s funny, but as the blog and social channels grow, there are more and more assumptions about Style at a Certain Age. and we all know assumptions or first impressions can be dangerous. if you pull apart the word assume, it reads ass-u-me or ass out of u and me. ha! but assumptions can also be spot on. since this blog is dedicated to aging with grace, strength, and beauty, i share style tips, beauty secrets, and health & wellness practices, so there are lots and lots of photos of me floating around the internet. it’s only natural that many assumptions are based on my appearance. there was even a discussion on Facebook that i wear a wig… if you can believe it by nature i am a very private person. but here i am at 62, dishing out style and beauty content five to six times a week with all of my besties – you, my lovely readers! it’s only natural that you have made your own presuppositions about me. it’s crazy, but we’ve developed an intimate relationship through the years even though i’ve never met you in person! so if you are interested in learning more about those reader assumptions or getting to know me as a person a little better, i put together a video where i answer your assumptions about Style at a Certain Age.
here’s a succinct definition of assumptions:
An assumption is something that you assume to be the case, even without proof. For example, people might make the assumption that you’re a nerd if you wear glasses, even though that’s not true. Or very nice.
here are a few reader assumptions that i tackle on the video.
You grew up in a wealthy family.
You modeled in your twenties.
You have a degree in fashion merchandising.
You have a very strong personality.
Taking care of your health is a priority.
You had a mom with great taste.
You had a facelift or used fillers.
You are happily married and wealthy.
