beach blanket bingo!


my mom and i went to the beach yesterday!


it was really nice. it's the first time i've been this year!

i was very happy to hang out alone with my mom because:

a. that almost never happens
b. she is leaving for germany next tuesday

we just ate strips, talked, and laid in the sun.

...not that laying in the sun really does anything for me since i coat myself in spf 70 (i had to tint these photos a bit to keep from blinding you all).


it's really hard to have an esthetician's license (not to mention parents who have had melanomas cut off their bodies) and not be super sun-conscious!

  7. YUMMMM. I miss strips! Good ol dwights. Brings back Junior Lifeguard memories. Are you looking for an aesthetician position? My parents own a derma clinic across the street from South Coast. I never hear you talking about doing facials...are you working as an aesthetician now? My family ALSO has melanoma-a-go-go and I am also super sun concious. We will age beatimously. :)

  10. Oh, I'm so jealous!!!!! I've only been to the beach once in my life and I was too young to remember it. :( One of these days when I'm less broke and more map-savvy I'm taking a serious roadtrip. :)

  12. Good for you spreading the spf love! I wear spf 15 on my face at all times, day or night, December or August. And when I'm out in the summer sun, it's spf 70 all the way. If I make it without a tan line, I've had a successful summer.

  13. mmm, 3 fist pumps for sun protection! My dad had skin cancer, so I can appreciate it too! Although, every time I buy a new sunblock, I lose it. So, I've been without lately. I'll probably end up looking like a leather handbag when I get older if I don't start using avidly again!

    I wish my mother wasn't so busy and stressed all the time -- it would be good to spend time with her where she wasn't rushed.
