Do we LOVE the colors in this ad or do we L-O-V-E the colors in this ad? The avocado green of her swimsuit, the boy-scout-esque pocket flaps, the goldenrod yellow of her hair...everything looks SO. SUMMER. As much as I hate to think of my skin someday resembling the color and consistency of Hoggle's due to my lack of vigilance as far as sun protection goes, I do love to get a little color in the summer. What are your thoughts on tanning? I've only been to a professional tanning bed twice, in college, and I wasn't super impressed with the process. My sister, my dad and I are all pretty much natural tanners, who brown up in the summer without laying out just from yard work, walkabouts, and short sleeves. We always do some kind of sunscreen but we always end up tanning. Lately, hearing about "tan mom" type stuff on the news, I wonder if I should eschew my casual sunning ways and wear sunhats, carry parasols, do all those things super fair-skinned people do to block out the sun.
LOOK! AT! THIS! AD! Not only does it look like the cover of some pot boiler detective paperback from the fifties', it uses one of my favorite, usable-in-real-life lines from Shakespeare. "Sleep no more! Macbeth does murder sleep!", is something I say to Babu all the time when I drank eight too many diet Cokes and I can't freaking get back to bed in the middle of the night...and here it is again in this MCM ad! We love it! I think the girl looks more hungover than worried about the bizarrely jaundiced, non-sunburned sections of her body, but maybe there's a combination of factors there. Do you think it's the same girl from the first ad, later that night?
Gotta jet. How's your summer shaping up so far? Any notable sunburns or occasions-to-be-sunburned? I'm hoping to make it up to Holiday World in Indiana before long...I'll make sure and heed Noxzema's stern warnings before I go!
Have a great Tuesday...get hype about Independence Day tomorrow! :)
