We know you’re busy, we know. It’s hard to find the time or even the motivation to get your hair cut when you spend most of your day picking oatmeal out of it. But before you slide any further down the slippery slope of Mt. Sexy, we’d like you to take a look at our latest post, The Beauty Secrets of Famous Moms. Sure, those celebrimoms may have an army of stylists at their disposal, but don’t despair at your lack of millions, or the fact that your husband or partner rolls away from you at night to spoon with the dog. There are so many simple lessons to be learned from the rich and beautiful among us! What’s Gwyneth’s beauty secret? “It’s all about choices. I choose to make time for a full loofah scrub-down and Swedish massage every morning,” pouts Paltrow, “but you could maybe take a washcloth to those armpits once a week.” Seriously. Phew.

SEPTEMBER 17, 2010: IT SEEMS WE WENT AWAY FOR A WHILE THERE

The summer, as you may know, is a strange and exhausting time of year. It is hot, for one, and depending on where you are in the world, it may also be humid. If you live in a city, everything smells bad. While some people spend those last awful weeks of summer cavorting on beaches and/or playing racquet-based sports, the Let’s Panic authors prefer to lounge in the air-conditioning and/or shade and beg our spouses to find us iced drinks. One thing you will rarely find us doing is “writing,” or engaging in similar sweat-producing activities. (You don’t sweat while you write, you say? Then you are clearly not doing it right.)

Fortunately for you, the summer is now over, and we couldn’t be more raring to go. This week we’re talking about pregnant women and how everyone needs to tell them what to do because otherwise who knows what shenanigans they might get up to. Go over there and read what we have to say. Go! There! Then let us know if we missed any points. We didn’t, of course, because we are unfailingly thorough. But if you want some attention, you can write to us. We think you’re cute.
