Yesterday I discovered Baddie Winkle, an 86-year-old lady who has a really bad-ass Instagram profile. This is one lady who has an awesome attitude and makes fun of the current trends of poses, fashion photos and self-portraits. I was like “yeah! I hope I have as much attitude as she has when I’m her age”.
She is also the face of a bathing suit brand called Dimepiece where you can see more awesomness of Baddie Winkle. I just love her sense of humor and the way she comes out in the photos. I also have to share Jezebel’s article on her, because she has collected the best set of her photos/videos on it.
I think she is also only the tip of the iceberg or the beginning to older people who refuse to become a vegetable in some elderly home who dress in drab beige outfits and ergonomic shoes and smell of mothballs.
In these days, there are so many possibilities for us to stay healthy, younger and in shape even when we grow older. If we remember that our body is the one and only we will have until the end, we will take good care of it. Having a healthy diet, exercise regularly and being creative and exercising your mind past the usual work work work. Most importantly, keeping a positive mind and laughing alot is the greatest secret to being happy, active and taking care of yourself.
Let’s all be the Baddie Winkles of our lives. Nothing is more absurd than taking life too seriously.
