Women VS. Men Image

You have been warned...This is a rant post.

Today and everyday when you get ready do you notice how much is involved? It annoys me. Before I had kids I used to love getting fixed up to go somewhere, now it is a hassle and I don't feel like I have the time. Between the shaving, plucking, makeup, curling, flat ironing, and who knows what else it is a CHORE. It should not be this way either, we should feel good in our own skin and be okay with going out natural, which I am sure some women are just lucky like that and look perfect when they wake up... I am NOT one of those people, therefore I have became frustrated when I get ready.

Why is that men have became more attractive with the scruffy look, unclean, rough, "real man" look, when women have been made to look more and more perfect?
This is not the mindset I want either of my children to have, and I know that they may because I FEEL THAT WAY. It is sad really.

Start paying attention to the shows you watch, one perfect example is Duck Dynasty. This is a favorite in my household and although I LOVE this show I notice how Willie, Jase, and Jep ALL look like they just rolled out of the woods and their wives look beyond perfect....HUMMM.... Not only is it in this show, but in the south in general where I live, the men wear their dirty jeans, a hat, unshaven face and boy do the girls go wild. Let me walk out with my hairy legs, nappy hair, and no makeup and I tell you what, you will see people running for the hills....

Just a little thought for your HUMPDAY!


  1. I think that the women who don't try so hard are the ones who are most beautiful. Sometimes cut off jeans and a Tshirt are sexy! And scruffy men are definitely delicious! Jax Teller on SOA is proof of that!

    1. HAHA! Joni. I agree...although i do not feel to sexy when I don't try :-/ BUT if I wear a tshirt and jeans with my hair fixed and a little makeup, I feel cute lol.

  2. Great post, Amanda! Love the Duck Dynasty pictures! I'm Heather and I was hoping you could answer my quick question about your blog! Please email me at Lifesabanquet1(at)gmail(dot)com when you get a chance!

  3. 100% agree with you. Expectations for men go down while those for women shoot through the roof. Its sad really.
