Chrissy Teigen's expectation for getting a nose piercing didn't turn out exactly how she hoped.

On Monday evening, the 35-year-old model and cookbook author revealed to followers on Twitter that she decided to get her nose pierced while on vacation with her family in St. Barts, but the idea didn't go as planned.

Captioning a photo of her new nose piercing on Twitter, Teigen detailed what happened after the piercing artist completed the task. "So I did this today and it immediately fell out and healed the second she left because she did it wrong lmao," she tweeted.

In a follow-up tweet, she continued, "Like how do you do it wrong? It's a hole, through the nose. It's like jerry seinfeld's bobsledding joke. It's impossible to do wrong."

Later, addressing critics and trolls of her piercing, the mom of two said, "It's out and healed you don’t have to keep being a------- thanks I'll do it better next time for you I promise!!" Teigen added in another tweet, "U sweet little angels never cease to surprise me."

Earlier this year, when Teigen was originally itching to get some body piercings, she turned to Twitter to ask her followers if it was the right move.

The Cravings cookbook author asked fans in July if they thought she was "too old" to get a small nose piercing she had been considering.

"Am I too old for a little diamond on my nose?" Teigen tweeted at the time. "You don't have to tell me I'm not old! I know I'm not olllllld but you know what I'm saying. Please be honest lol."

A few hours later, Kerry Washington replied to Teigen telling her that age shouldn't hold anyone back from experimenting with piercings. "I got to wear a fake one everyday while shooting @LittleFiresHulu and it was soooooooo hard to say goodbye. I LOVED it," the Little Fires Everywhere actress said.

Ultimately, the next day Teigen revealed on both Twitter and Instagram that she opted to get a few piercings along her left ear rather than on her nose. She answered Washington saying: "I can absoluuuuutely see you with a real one! I had my friend get one to get over my itch."

Teigen then showed off the new piercings on her Instagram Story, which appeared to be on her cartilage and in the inner ear. "Look how cool I am! I am so cool. I love it," she said while tagging Brian Keith Thompson of L.A. tattoo and piercing studio, Body Electric Tattoo.

"Ok all done! No nose :( maybe in another life," she tweeted at the time.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
