Pic Roulette

I hardly ever post pics of myself for two reasons; one, it makes an always traveling Babe très nervous and two, I am theee most critical person alive...

11pm July 4
Moi: Omg, I haven't done a post for tomorrow!
Babe: Just throw up a pic from last night.
Moi: Really? Alrighttt sirrrr...

Moi: How about this one? thinking, tan arm, check. blond hair, check.
Babe: No. Looks weird cuz you're taking a picture...

Babe: How about this one with you and Kimba, that's a really good one.
Moi: OmgIneedafacelift
Babe: You said you'd never get one cuz people can always tell when someone's had one and talk about it behind their back.
Moi: Welllll, right now they're talking behind my back about how I NEED one...

Babe: Okay then, what about this one?
Moi: GASP! With the horse face???

Moi: I'm starting to think I should go faceless...

Babe: Oh, this is the one. Use this.
Moi: I look like I need a hair intervention! Great. A mane to go with my horse face.
Babe: Come on, your hair looks great. It's super summery.
Moi: Oh, it's super somethin'...

groan...How about we just put up this pic of you? You always look gorg...

Babe: Nope. This is the one. Lobster, blond hair. Great summer shot.
Moi: defeated Where's that stunt double Lolly when ya need her?

Cut to a pastywhitenpackiningonthewinterinsulation moi longingly looking at these same pics six months from now...Oh maaaaan, look how tan and skinny I looked last summer. Wish I looked like that now...

Kindness of a blind as a bat Babe who will never, EVER get Lasik eye surgery...XXOO

  1. Babe is right. You look great. And you do NOT need a facelift. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

  4. You're right. You're too critical. Gorgeous and skinny is what I see. And what else did I spot in this post? Your white Rachel Leigh bangle? Must order another, asap! Love!! Oh, and by the way, love when you post pics of your outfits too.

  6. I see a slim/fit lady with brilliant white teeth, hair that is inexplicably very blond AND in beautiful condition, tanned skin that I could never achieve regardless of how many PTH applied and of course a very happy individual that knows how to have fun. But that's just me pretending to not have a jealous bone in my trim-enough-to-settle-for body.

    P.S. The bonfire shot looks very Gwynnie.

  8. "I look like I need a hair intervention!"

    You need no such thing. But maybe a leeeetle teeny tiny wee bit of an SPF intervention, that's all. Just take care of that beautiful young skin of yours, or onnnnne day [believe me, it happens practically overnight] here comes a splotchy sunspot, then another, then 5 more all at once, frightening looking, but if that's all the sun damage that manifests, you'll be lucky because certain other sun damage lesions have tragic consequences.

    THIS WAS AN SPF INTERVENTION, given with great affection and much admiration.

  14. You Look GORGEOUS! SOOO jealous of that tan!!!! My fair, freckeled Irish skin just won't tan without help from a self-tanner and then that only goes so far!

  18. Such a movie star, that is, if movie stars were intelligent, self-deprecating, funny, and honest. You look great Alice, such an archetype of America, the type that spawns great novels. You might as well appreciate it because everyone else sure does.

  19. Does it ever get any better than lobsters + bonfires?

    Love, love, love the hair color and length!

  20. So, I wanted to say: "Facelift, you don't need no stinkin' facelift", but was afraid you might not know what movie I stole that line from. Anyway, here it is and you look, (to steal another phrase) "mahvelous" !!

    ReplyDelete
  21. You look great! Love the shorts you are sporting - very cute! I'm the same way - not crazy about some of the pics I posted from our recent visit to Nashville, but it was super-hot and the humidity was relentless, so sometimes I just need to let it go and show the real me! :)

  27. You look great - am very curious: what kind of sunblock/sunscreen do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I use Skinceuticals SPF30 on my face, neck, ears,back of hands and chest and Coppertone Sport SPF15 on the rest of my body. I also keep a bottle of the original Coppertone SPF8 in my bag for late day slathering just cuz it's my favorite smell in the world :)

  29. "I use......:)"

    I've been worried sick I offended you, I learned my lesson, no more outrageous interventions, thanks for the smiley face at the end, I repent.

  30. The moon must be in retro sumthin' cuz this has been the morning of, did I offend you's. Trust me ladies and gents, it takes a lot, with great intent, to offend moi. I can not recall a single comment, ever, that was offensive. Minus a few hate filled, cowardly anon driveby comments from seemingly mental patients it's been all Hydrangea and sunshine here at SIAV. No worries friends :)

  32. Stop phishing (kidding!) You really do look fab!

    Addendum 1- Shirt by ?? And seriously, you look great!

    Addendum 2- Not chi-chi by any stretch, but Yankee Candle has a scent, Sun and Sand, that is Essence de Coppertone.
