The No Eye Makeup Experiment

The No Eye Makeup Experiment
Recently, I wrote about experimenting with going eye makeup-free. I’ve been tired of putting makeup on my eyes in the morning and spending far too much time and energy (and money) wiping it off at night. I’ve learned to love the look of someone with pale eyebrows and eyelashes wearing nothing but (usually bright) lipstick.... Read more »

Do Men Like Makeup on Redheads?

Do Men Like Makeup on Redheads?
If you’ve been reading this blog lately, you know that I’ve been practicing going sans makeup, save for lipstick. In my last post, I described a man I’d been chatting with on Happn, and how he told me he had a redhead fetish because us lack-of-melaniners tend to look more natural in our overdone makeup...

What Men Really Think of Redheads

What Men Really Think of Redheads
Oddly enough, shortly after the last post about redheads going sans makeup save for lipstick, someone made an interesting comment to me.

Exotic Redheads: Offensive?

Exotic Redheads: Offensive?
Growing up outside of Milwaukee, in a town with mostly descendants of German immigrants and then later attending school with mostly Scandinavian descendants, I stood out with my red hair but not overly so. I shared my paleness and blue eyes with at least half of the population. My best friends always had blonde hair,... Read more »

New Ginger Barbie Sucks

New Ginger Barbie Sucks
So Barbie introduced newly sized dolls. Big woop de doo. They still fit into defined categorizations of which most women are undefinable. For me, I wonder, do I feel a kindred spirit most with the one with curly red hair, even though she’s tall and a daywalker? Do I relate to the curvy one because... Read more »

To be serious for a minute: 2015 saw me recovering from a year-long illness. From July 2014 through March 2015, I went to my doctor again and again and again. After testing me for a plethora of very scary illnesses, he gave up and told told me I was depressed and that I needed to... Read more »

2016 New Year's Resolutions for Redheads
1. Wear sunscreen. Everyday. One of the best things you can do for your health and to prevent wrinkles is wear sunscreen. Look for products with SPF 15; that’s all you need.

Freckle Tattoos Trending

Freckle Tattoos Trending
Stefaan van Damme, follower of the The Ginger Philes on Facebook (like The Ginger Philes here) and brave enough to engage in a ginger-on-ginger marriage, alerted me to a new trend: temporarily tattooing freckles on your body. Seriously, what is this world coming too? Red hair is so popular now that high school mean girl... Read more »
