Thing I Hate #37: Dumb Words Beauty Magazines Use

Gams

You don’t mean “gams,” because you aren’t a gangster from the 1930s. You mean “legs.”

Frock

Oh, a dress? Because I’m pretty sure the only people who wear frocks also wore bloomers and petticoats and corsets. You affected twat.

Fête

Are you French? Then you can say “Fête.”

Nosh

This is a legitimate word, it’s just used by horrid, self-important people who think they have impressive vocabularies. And don’t want to come out and say “snack.” Lameness by association.

Glam

Glamorous. Glamorous. Glamorous. Your mag sounds supes dumb when it abbrevs words.

    Hilarious! We share similar senses of humor… I love that you have a section for “things I hate”–I do too! Anyway, if you ever want to come write a guest post, stop by and let me know–I think you’d fit right in.
