I think white people seriously underestimate how dangerous the sun is for us

folks with darker skin are generally a bit safer from harm but holy crap the sun/tanning is horrible for light skinned folks

I do see more people with parasols around lately so maybe people are starting to catch on

I always have mine with me since it doubles as an umbrella anyway, and I find sunscreen inconvenient 

but seriously the sun is trying to kill us

well now I’m looking through old pictures
here’s the first time I dyed my hair; I LOVED it purple but the dye was such a pain in the ass- it dyed my skin wherever it touched. :(
I’d do it purple again in a heartbeat though!

I forgot I had a hime cut when i moved to SLC
but this is basically what my hair does on its own, so I can just curl the ends better and stick a flower in my hair to call it good
I also love wearing snoods (even though, yet again, more 40s) so I’ll be able to do that again soon

I need to come up with a quick, easy 1950s inspired hairstyle I can do for work

As much as I love victory rolls, it bothers me that they’re more of a 1940s style when I wear something more 50s style

Luckily my hair is long enough now to put in a ponytail, so that’s a good casual look, but I need to come up with a more polished look too

it’s half the reason I’m growing my hair out, because my hair does a pretty effortless Bettie Page when it’s long enough

today has been pretty nice

Boyfriend and I were woken up by the cat around 6:30. We eventually wandered out into the living room where we both accidentally took naps. We then woke up for a bit, I made coffee and pancakes and then we took another nap

I called Sallie Mae and took care of that shit

then we went out to get stamps so I could pay conserve (and now I’ll have stamps until like 2016 because I only use one stamp a month) 

I dunno it’s been a low key day but really enjoyable. I needed a day like today!
