4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sunburn Remedies!!! on: April 22, 2005 01:24:03 AM
i don't know what it's called in the us, but in canada there's a product thats either a spray or a lotion called solarcane with lidocane. it recommend keeping it in the fridge, i have never had relief like this before, chilled aloe leaves were the next best thing. but this stuff... ahhh... if you keep it chilled it'll go on cold, and then numb the whole area and leave it tingly. the spray goes all crazy bubbly and is fun to watch too. i use that before bed and then usually applied aloe in the morning so my skin wouldn't go all crackly. all i can say is use an aloe or vitamin e based after sun gel, or natural aloe on it ALL THE TIME... even in the bathroom at school, and that should help keep it from getting all peely, and the swelling will go down as long as you stay out of the sun and the heat. also, stay away from man made fibers, cotton is your best friend right now! and if your sunscreen isn't cutting it, try using a high spf spray sunscreen, and make sure you spray it everywhere! i find it works better than the normal lotion because i can get it into all of the hard to reach places, and it gets absorbed into the skin really quickly. that way your poor earlobs won't get burnt, and you won't get those weird burn lines from where you skimped on the sunscreen.
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: i want to be pale! please offer recipes... on: April 22, 2005 01:16:40 AM
i agree with everyone else about the sunscreen. keep it on, and keep in the shade, do that for a year or two and you will be as pale as your natural skin tone will allow- plus at 50 your skin will make you look years younger you'll be thanking yourself then, believe me.  if you've been sunburnt or exposed to the sun without it on, i've always found that applying aloe or vitamin e cream every day helped my skin recover the quickest, b/c  a tan after all is just the result of your skin being fried to a crisp. and as far as makeup goes, i've always found tinted moisturizers, or natural look foundations to be the best at blending in without spending lots of cash, and loreal also makes a solid foundation called feel naturele that i prefer to true match, it doesn't do that weird micro-sparkle thing in the sun and it blends in without noticable colour, just covers up the flaws.

oh it's so nice to talk to other "sunscreeners" haha. i used to be called a pale freak in school, or get teased for my freckles, but i'm pretty proud that i'm the shade i am. i think it's classic and pretty. tanning is sooooo overrated anyways. who wants to turn orange for skin cancer? not me! and bleaching is weird and dangerous sounding too.  i say be proud of the colour you were given, whatever it may be!

i looks cute! one thing i do with shirts that have gaping chests, is i get the teeniest little safty pins, and just take up a thread or two in the middle of the top of the shirt and pin it down to the middle of my bra. that way i can lean down without flashing everyone while still wearing big comfy shirts - perfect for summer! or get some of that no iron hem tape, and do it around the top edge of the shirt to stick it down all the way around  if you don't wear a bra with it.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: a skirt for me, a skirt for my bunny on: April 20, 2005 10:32:35 PM
Very cute! Your bunny and my bunny look identical (miniature!), but I think that he'd be angry if I made him a skirt... maybe pants though. He loves to eat fabric though.... 99% of my clothing has little bunny-bites taken out of it.

yeah, my bunny owns everything below knee level in my house. i'd get mad, but it's hard to get mad when they're so cute! and she totally ate her skirt, sooo i don't think i'll be making her anymore clothes, haha... she seemed to get mad and take it out on the skirt, she has a bit of an additude, but i wouldn't want it any other way.

i like the skirt alot, perfect for the occasion -  but  i want to thank you for that link. i've been searching for something like this for a really long time!

thats really cool! i like the a line of it- looks good on MOST everyone. And about your friend buying the same shirt- my best friend and i do that alot too. Since we're roughly the same size, whenever we're at a thrift store trying stuff on- we'll tell eachother what the other one has looks awful on them, and then we buy it ourselves.

i remember that. my group of friends in highschool used to "claim" certian items in a store so no one else could buy the same thing, one time my friend did that for a pair of boots that i loved, and my payday was a week ahead of hers - so i bought them. she was SO mad... i don't think she talked to me for a week, but she got the boots anyways and made a point of going "well, they were mine in the first place" if anyone commented that we had the same ones. haha...
