Guess this means I'm getting old...er...older.
I'm not sure if I remember ever being hot, so embracing my former "hotness" seems impossible. Of course, I adore the complicated and sexy Carrie Bradshaw, but I am more like the ultra practical and orderly Miranda.Besides buying the latest Wonder Bra, is it possible to become hot again? Blogger Stephanie Dolgoff has compiled her observations about that "formerly hot" state of mind in her new book, My Formerly Hot Life: Dispatches from Just the Other Side of Young.
The book has many sparkling reviews. According to Margo Maine, Ph.D., author The Body Myth: Adult Women and the Pressure to Be Perfect:
"My Formerly Hot Life belongs right next to Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love for the woman trying to understand and embrace her complicated contemporary life. At the same time as it is laugh-out-loud funny, it will help you discard the old notions and expectations of yourself that no longer fit. Reading it will help you access the hotness you thought was diminishing…but that might just be heating up."
