Should I Care About My Beauty or Lack Thereof?

“You shouldn’t care what guys think.” It is the proportion of caring that matters. I hate being told falsehoods to comfort. It’s dismissive of my feelings and reality and can actually reinforce the perception or opinion since it makes me feel that since they dismiss my opinion they can’t actually answer my opinion, that what… Continue reading Should I Care About My Beauty or Lack Thereof?

Potatoes, Parents, and Past Styles of Beauty

I mentioned in my last post about parents and grandparents and some of their friends opinion’s on mine and my sisters’ beauty. One sister said we must have been very beautiful back in their day (rather than now) seeing as the compliments people are grandparents’ ages gave us. I wrote such comments on our intelligence*… Continue reading Potatoes, Parents, and Past Styles of Beauty

More Beauty Stuff and the Pseudoscience of “Green” or “Clean” Beauty

I feel like a few years ago I mentioned this channel, but I’m not sure.

Sunscreen Hoopla

So I’ve been using Korean sunscreens for a couple years, they made wearing sunscreen everyday not disgusting.

I’d tried that brand once and didn’t love it (not sure it was the exact same formulation… Continue reading Sunscreen Hoopla

Jane Austen Festival 2018: Part 3, Regency Patterns and Planning for Next Year

I’ve always loved historical fashion mainly pioneer (or prairie) girl with some Victorian and Colonial as a child; my knowledge stemmed from Little House and the American Girls, so the Regency period was an unknown time until I was introduced to Jane Austen.

Style Icons

I read and see so many people trying to imitate a few of Audrey Hepburn’s looks. All of the ones I can remember do not have the Winter coloring necessary for wearing black; read color experts, not everyone can wear black. Most do not have her body shape. Style icons look good oftentimes because at… Continue reading Style Icons
