Look, I get it. I get that the whole MILF thing has evolved into some “you must be perfect and look as if you’ve never been pregnant or looked at a cookie” mentality. I get that Britney gets called fat just because she doesn’t look like she used to – and that’s wrong. I get that Salma Hayek heard ALL about it because she actually looked pregnant with her entire body, and not like she was smuggling a basketball.
However, I also remember the I heard the term and how hard I laughed. (Sitting in a theater watching American Pie.)
It was awesome. Those two teenage boys licking the frame and going ape over Jennifer Coolidge.
I mean LOOK at her. She’s hawt, yo.
She’s hot and she does NOT:
1. weigh less than 110 pounds when her body is meant to weigh more.
2. look like a 20 year old when is she twice that age.
3. have skinny thighs.
1. carry herself with confidence
2. dress for HER body type
3. exude an “I could be the best thing to ever happen to you” aura
And THAT, my friends, is what I have in mind when I think of MILF. I’m done being a little girl, and I’m sick of all the images that keep trying to tell me that I’m supposed to aspire to be 15 forever.
So tell me, who is YOUR role model for being fabulous at any age or weight?

Hello Gorgeous! I’m Debbie Nigro and I am getting younger and better looking everyday. Can’t wait for tomorrow! I’m excited to be here on e.l.f. to join the fun with all the ‘young’ beauties to spread the word that “there’s no expiration date on sexy”! Whew! Good to know eh?
I ‘m an entrepreneur who writes a blog/newsletter called “Still A Babe” - It’s an attitude! and yeah yeah Ok , maybe a couple of products. (wink)
We ageless girls need a whole bunch of stuff to tackle, wrestle, and coerce the natural look these days, and when I saw that e.l.f. had much of that stuff at ridiculously inexpensive prices, I figured I’d better get in touch with them.
Instead, fate put e.l.f. in touch with me. Fate arranged for Ted Rubin , e.l.f.’s marketing guru to be sitting next to me at a table in a restaurant in NYC a week after I discovered e.l.f. online.
When I looked at Ted’s business card, I flipped my ageless lid, as I was right in the middle of referring to e.l.f. in a power point, that I was sharing with a business associate. Isn’t fate a riot?
The fateful result is that I am here getting a chance to share some fun ageless attitude with you gals. I will now introduce my other naïve girlfriends to products here because I know they’re spending too much money on products elsewhere.
Ah, the wisdom of the ageless.
