Some Sage Advice

A wise woman once said, "Katy, get your bottom inside that house RIGHT NOW and put some sunscreen on this instant".

Thanks, Mom.

But now, turns out I'm a little bit of a SPF-aholic. My sweet Hubs (whom I lovingly call Pale-Face) thinks it's crazy for a dark-skinned Asian to be so concerned about sun damage... but like I always say, "Tis far, far better to have a face.... than NOT to have a face at all". Ok, I really don't always say that, but I should.


Honestly, I'm not too proud of this picture. It's cloudy out today (surprise, surprise) so my "genius" ideas are all miffed by our finicky Idaho weather. Yesterday, I walked around parks and stores to hopefully stumble upon a Wise Old Indian Woman or an Owl or maybe if I'm really lucky an Elephant who is wise beyond its years. Turns out Elephants don't frequent the Rexburg Wal-Mart like I think they ought to. O Well! Happy Sunday

You are hil-ar-ious! I loved the story and the picture is of some very good products.

The picture is very crisp and clean. I like the towel or fabric... or whatever it is.. that you used for your backdrop. Very cool!

I hate it when I don't see random elephants at Wal-mart! Darn it.

You crack me up. Seriously... if we were in the same state, there would be a girls night!

Love the wisdom in your subject.

aw, Breezi, I'd Totally be up for girls night!!!!!! If only we lived closer!

quite funny. Even for any skin tone it is a good idea to keep it on. It helps prevent sun damage over a long period of time so it keeps your skin healthier. You will have less creases and wrinkles later and less blemishes.

Yes Im a guy who knows about this stuff. Chop it up to 2 years working with a company that makes makeup and having a wife selling avon.

But it is a nice picture and I like the background too. It makes the whole configuration pulled together if you know what I mean.

I have turned into and SPF freak since getting older. I use to go to the tanning bed everyday when I was in high school, now I go to the dermatologit every year to have my moles measured. My husband works at the Wal-Mart Home Office, maybe he can suggest their be Elephants in the stores...hmmm

I'm with Breezi it would be great to live close to everyone and have a girls night out!

Haha. You're too funny. Way to go on the Sunscreen. My hubs works in the sun all the time, and I am always making him wear sunscreen. It is, for sure, better to have a face!

Jackie said...

Katy, you crack me up!! I love your "quote" that you "always" say. :D This picture looks like it could be in a magazine with an article about using sunscreen!!

Ah Katy, I'm always excited to see what you are going to post. Loved this one! I love the bright colors and the print of the towel you used in the background, it really gives the picture flavor.

Katy said...

Zealy- my fave is the Ultra Sheer... no sticky, greasy crap... just good ol' fashioned UV protection baby!

Teryn said...

Great take! It fits so well. You are always so creative with your posts. Where do you come up with this stuff!! It's awsome!
