I just love when Gwyneth Paltrow goes all UK on us. In the latest issue of GOOP, Gwyneth talks about lack of sleep. Instead of saying she is always tired or exhausted, she uses the word knackered. Nothing wrong with the word. It sounds fun. I think she just uses it though to remind us all that she doesn't live in America full-time. There are not too many UPS drivers who get off their shift at the end of the day, plop down on the sofa and tell their spouse they are knackered.
Anyway, Gwyneth is so knackered that she figures all of us must be too and has one of her doctors give us a lesson on sleep. All good information. What kills me about her five line note is that until Gwyneth read a book recently she had no idea that not getting enough sleep could cause any kind of health problems. Yeah. So, let me see. I haven't read that book, but I am guessing if you only sleep an hour or two a night for awhile that you are probably going to get ill or sick or cranky or have a newborn.
To get that good sleep at night, Gwyneth then pushes lots of different products at you most of which are really expensive. Instead of offering a mixed selection of expensive and reasonable Gwyneth only offers the high end products and says, "Linens should be 100% cotton in a high thread count, if your budget allows. Here are a few brands that offer high-quality linens:"
There is no section for anyone on a budget. Does she not read things people write about her site? Does she have her head so far up her butt that she doesn't hear what "everyday people" are going through? Who does she write this thing for?
