It's a Ginge Thing

Archive for the month “March, 2012”


HELLO my little ginger dumplings! It’s just after midnight right about now and I’m sitting here blogging! Some of you may ask why and I’m just going to have to let you in on that little secret. Today I leave for a 24 hour drive down to Panama City Beach and I am attempting to stay up as late as possible so I can sleep like the little ginger angel I am the whole way down! Brilliant, I know….

I also wanted to let all of you guys know that I will not be blogging for the week due to my weeks long vacation with good friends, good drinks, and some sure to be pretty brutal sunburns – don’t worry, I packed 50-100 SPFs. Here are some things that I’m looking forward to doing while down in the sunny state of Flo-Ridaaaa

1. Attempting to stay sunburn free

2. Challenging other gingers I meet along my travels to connect the freckles

3. Lagging my oversized umbrella back and forth to the beach everyday…..

4. Applying tons of bronzer to my entire body before I go out so I’ll look half as tan as my friends..

5. Parasailing! (this is when i’ll apply the 100+ sunscreen because i’ll be closer to the sun)

and most importantly,

6. ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!!!!….this doesn’t really need much of an explanation.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and PLEASE pray for me to come back tanner than ever.

What NOT to wear

Hello my little ginger snaps! As some of you may know if you’ve been reading my blog, I’m going down to Florida in a few day’s for spring break. I have been acting like a kid on Christmas eve for the past week just awaiting that beautiful coach bus to come pick me up with 40 other students who will all most likely be completely smashed within the first hour of our 24 hour trip…anyway.

As I’ve been shopping around spending money I don’t have to buy things for my trip, I’ve definitely been having difficulties finding things to wear because this time of year there are so many bright and vibrant colors in nearly every store. Being a ginger, I know these colors don’t look good on me especially since I’m ridiculously pale at the moment…well actually, I’m always pale. Although I did bring dozens of reds, oranges, and pink shirts into the dressing rooms in hopes maybe the rule had changed, I slowly kept getting uglier and uglier after each outfit I tried on. So, because of the troubles I’ve been having, I figured I could save you guys a few and leave you with some expert makeup and fashion advice!

I really like what these websites have to offer when it comes to tips for gingers because it’s true to who we are and typically rules I abide by. I think they both give great advice for letting out our true beauty rather than hiding our gingerness. Well, embrace it now redheads of the world because we’re a rare breed and if we change, who are people supposed to make fun of?  ;)

Also, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there are days when most of us ginger-folk go walking out the door thinking we look like this :


When in reality we really look like this: Image

I highly suggest you follow these tips to avoid this at all costs. Happy hump-day, beauties!


Over the past couple of years celebrities have been dyeing their hair to what I believe to be the most gorgeous color out there – RED. As I’m sure you didn’t see that coming, I do have to say this is a very flattering gesture being a redhead myself. So to all of you people out there who are constantly poking fun at redheads and making fun of how we are going extinct I am literally laughing in your face right now. I’m assuming these celebrities have the best and most well-informed stylists who have told them it’s a trend to have red hair and honestly, it is about time somebody has figured it out because I have been saying it all along. I know you’re all probably thinking this is ridiculous blah blah blah, but just you wait …I know how trends work and I know that pretty soon all you celebri-wannabes are going to drive to your local pharmacy and pick up some cheap hair die in a box. Who is laughing now ginger haters?

Some of these celebrities that are still going strong with this trend include musical artists Rihanna, Hayley Williams, and even Team Meatball (Snooki and Deena from the Jersey Shore). Now I’m not one to brag (yes I am) but I’m pretty sure all of these people are rolling in dough and they all have red hair and nobody is complaining or making fun of them in fact, fashion experts wish more celebrities would go red!

I think this is saying something about the world; the only way for a ginger to be accepted is to get famous. Seeing as I already feel as if I don’t belong in a small town because all I am to everyone is a big ginger joke, I think it’s time to move to Hollywood where redheads are accepted – and practically worshiped to say the least.
