Oh Barbie My Dear

Filed under: Uncategorized — by gingerrlily @ 7:59 pm

A new Barbie from the “Back to Basics” collection is not sitting well with parents. Barbie’s physique has always caused many problems before but none of them have seen to be so obvious as this one.

The doll not only wears a low cut top, but has an impressive set of Knockers on her.

One parent raged:

“I don’t want [my daughter] to think she has to be this, you know, busty Barbie who’s constantly wearing heels and these low-cut shirts. And that’s really the image I think a doll that you’re going to buy for a child is portraying.”

Another mother added she doesn’t “want my baby growing up to think Heidi(Montang) is her role model”.

While parents continue to kick and scream about model #10, Mattel hasn’t addressed the complaints.

What do U think about the busty Barbie? Inappropriate or no big deal???

Inneresting choice.

Save The Pink Support

Filed under: Uncategorized — by gingerrlily @ 2:36 am

Coco Perez- I love, and its exactly where I discovered this shocking story. Turns out Ryan Stevens the principle at Washington’s Klahowya Secondary School principal, has banned students from wearing breast cancer bracelets that say ” I love Boobies. Keep-A-Breast”.

Stevens said the ban was a combination of students making inappropriate gestures and his breast cancer surviving staff members saying they were offensive.

Now the bracelets must be turned inside out or not worn at all.

One student believes the ban is a violation of their freedom of speech, saying “It’s a good cause and we’re not allowed to stand up for it”.

Pretty controversial , especially when it’s simply a bracelet that supports fighting breast cancer.

Sex In The City 2 :)

Filed under: Uncategorized — by gingerrlily @ 3:05 am

Yes! Yes! Yes!!! 😀 Sex in the City 2 is almost here and I’m pretty sure I speak for the whole female population when i state , and quote, “It’s going to be awesome !!” It’s truly a great show and the first movie was great to so I’ve greatly anticipated the sequel which will be out and released May 27 , just a feel weeks away.

As for the advertising I believe its all flawless and hot. It is very appealing and eye grabbing which is one of the reasons why I believe a lot of chicks are going to cash in on the opening weekend. Yesterday in class was quite a different story though, we focused on how extremely photoshopped all the actresses had been in order to help make this ad look flawless. Turns out most of the ladies their age do not look like them which seem to appear extremely young and thin in the poster.

PS: im  watching the trailer right now and its so fab :),-

Back to the point a few plastic surgery and a bit of photoshopping can always do the job, though its something that I don’t really mind like many other people might because of the fact that I know that this is all just a part of the advertising and media world to look great and flawless no matter what and that all that of course is nothing but an extremely fashionable and edgy fantasy land 🙂
