I really take after my grandma June aesthetically

She always looks polished and put together, even though she’s been a homemaker her whole life

She said she treated it like her job- woke up at the same time everyday,  put her makeup on and got dressed for the day

My other grandmother, Lilian, says she ducks and hides when she sees June at the local grocery store because she’s embarrassed by how shitty she looks in comparison

I never want to feel like I have to do that, so even when I’m dressed casually I put the effort in to look polished

it makes me feel good about myself too

Filed under personal I even wear a bow on my head most days like she always does

My dad turns 60 today! Hard to believe when you look at him, everyone guesses he’s like, 45

He doesn’t look like the average 60 year old, to be fair

he still has a full head of hair, mostly black, his skin is pretty good (even though he smoked for like, 10-15 years) and he keeps in shape from his job

my dad’s pretty awesome for an old guy

vvitcx replied to your post: my sister got into a brief relationsh…

Ugh. Yikes.

right? The worst part is she outright refuses any suggestion I put past her. She’s happy being miserable. I know what it looks like because I used to be that way too, before I got on a good combination of meds and a lot of therapy. She has the same mental health issues I do but she chooses alternative medicine instead. I can see that’s working out well for her.

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
