Things I Don't Get Part 13


       So it's time for the 13th Things I Don't Get post and for starters I'll say I don't get why 13's supposed to be a bad number — so all the people who were born on the 13th of any month are doomed? Eh, that's poppycock. I like all numbers, even 13. Give me 13 dollars, euros, pounds, yen, kunas, whatever, and I'll take them. Would you turn them down just because it's an 'ominous' number? Didn't think so. But I digress so I'll stop. Let's get on with the today's post, here's the newest list of 10 things I don't get.

   1. Tanning beds. Why would you pay for something that you can get for free — just go lie out in the open, not in some plastic box. I'd get it if tanning beds would be healthier, but they are just as bad so you're getting cancer and broke at the same time, go you.



   3. Flat open toe (ugly as fuck) sandals with socks. Don't know what I'm talking about? Here's an example. And those two are supposed to be fashion icons. I've seen hobos look more stylish than that. My grandfather has more self-respect than walking out in public with open toe sandals and frigging socks. And they say they're bringing the look back. First off, back from where — Uglyville? And second of all, why would you want that look back?

   4. Pop culture. The term, not the concept. What's Keeping up with the Kardashians or Amanda Bynes got to do with culture? Culture is culture and showbiz is showbiz, which makes 'pop culture' an oxymoron.

   5. Pink lemonade. You know that lemons aren't pink, right? And that your tongue can't taste pink?

   7. Coconut water. And all the hype around it. Have you ever tried it? That shit tastes TERRIBLE. Fine, it's healthy, whatever. But does it taste good? I'm sure I'd get more oral pleasure from licking a donkey's ball sack.

   8. Why do celebrities out of all people get free stuff? Clothes, jewelry, free entrances to shows, concerts, dinners at fancy restaurants, etc. Why? They are the ones who can afford all that stuff.

   9. Baby proofing. Why would you want to spend a shit-load of money for someone to go around your house and fuck up your decor? Did your grandmother have a security retina scanner to unlock every electrical outlet in the house? No. And your parents still managed to survive long enough to spawn little 'o you. Shocking, right? Not really. Watch your kid. Just watch your kid. Don't leave knives and chainsaws and live tigers lying around in your living room and you're done baby proofing your house. There.

  1. Hi babes, hope things are well for you.
    Well I have to say I agree with quite a few of these points, particularly the musicals (Mama Mia uugh). Coconut water - guilty hee hee! Number 8, OMG yes why does baby North West have so much free shite, do these designers not know who her parents are!!!! Clever marketing I guess!

    Have a fab weekend!

  2. Haha your reaction to #10 is great (getting a rush of adrenaline after not brushing your hair, soooo bad ass!) I will definitely agree with you that the Olsen sisters did not look great in that picture (nuns with socks is that pic in a nutshell).

    P.S And when I'm a parent, if I have children, I will watch them and when asked why I didn't get the newest expensive most high-tech baby proof, I'll say it was because of Peet (the voice of God). :)

    1. Couldn't agree more, PINK lemonade is simply stupid, there's no other word for it.

  4. Hahaha, killer list, as always! My bf tries to get away with socks and sandals sometimes and he knows how I feel about that ;) Love the idea of printed cars too! xo

    1. That's just crazy, the sock and sandal combination! If your bf went out looking like that, everyone would think he's insane, but when the Olsen's do it, it's supposed to be chic?? Come on, people...

  5. Out of these 10, numbers 1 through 5 and number 8 (so true) are my favourites. The tanning bed thing is especially ridiculous. I thought the reason people got tans ( I avoid them) is because they want people looking at their bodies. So not getting the tan in public seems especially dumb - unless they want a private place to tan the area where they just had that Brazilian wax job. Print cars would be super-cool. I agree with number 3 too. It's amazing how man people don't have artistic taste of their own and take the word of self-declared fashion gurus who are totally lacking in artistic taste themselves. Maybe they're the ones who pay celebrities to sit in the front row at their shows - because they're trying to buy the appearance of fashion designing legitimacy. Another great list of things you "don't get" - because they're nonsensical :)

  6. okay, those Olsen twins and their sandals with socks look disgusting! it's even worse than my stupid flu right now. and I though nothing can be worse than that :O
    when it comes to tanning beds then during cold seasons like winter I can see the point of those and have used them, too. not much but still. but during summer and other tanning seasons I can't see why someone would want to tan in a box, not at the beach.
    oh and musicals.. you're exactly like me when it comes to those annoying things :P I just hate musicals and how everyone is singing and dancing together. sooo annoying and stupid. but when it comes to hair I have to say I used to be a girl who tried pink, orange, red, dark brown, almost white.. gosh, everything and it just ruined my hair. it looked horrible after all that crap and now I just enjoy my long hair again. it's thick again, not consisting of a few separate hairs, haha :D highlights are all I can think of right now, if anything at all. but I admit, I do enjoy seeing your crazy colours! you rock that blue! and what a cool photo shoot! very ghetto ;)

    1. Ok, if you burnt your hair, then it's good to give them a rest, but one can at least try different haircuts, there's no excuse for that if you ask me.:) I don't know, I get bored easily and hair is something about yourself that can be changed with ease so why not. You can't have a different nose or lips every few moths. I mean, you could, but that's way more unhealthy than bleaching and dyeing your hair.:)

  7. Oh I just LOVE these posts and yes, sandals and socks? That shit shouldn't even be worn around the house. And i don't like musicals either! :O Either you go to a play, or you go to a concert. Acting and singing at the same time? No.
    But seriously, I hate all the hyped healthy crap too but I do love coconut water - not the kind that comes in a bottle, but the kind that you get from a tiny shack on the beach on holiday. You know what else I hate? KALE. Why is a vegetable that no one had previously heard of suddenly the healthiest thing out there?

    Anyway! Hope you're having a splendid weekend! :)

    1. See, you don't like the bottled kind!:P I'm sure the taste isn't the same, it can't be. The one you get at the shack you mentioned is more milky and I can see that being extra yummy. And I heard about the kale obsession, but I've never had it. Apparently kale chips is really good, but I wouldn't know first hand — you tell me.:)

  8. Patterned cars? Yes please! Although, I don't know what I'd want. I like the mini coopers with the checkered tops! On another note, I love your urban look.

  9. I love coconut water straight from the coconut. You know (maybe not :) ) when the coconut falls off the tree and you crack it open and drink straight from it. It's a tropical thing. So I find it strange to have coconut water chilled in grocery stores here. I must say, they taste shit. I never got the sandals-socks combo. That makes you look like an out-of-place American tourist. Say hello to Leos for me x

    1. I love coconut, the fruit, but I've never had a coconut drink like straight from the nut so I can't say for sure but I bet it tastes waaaaaaaaaaay better than the bottled shit. That's can't be the actual natural flavor, it just can't.:)

      Leos says hi back.;)

  12. I am right with you on sandals (I also hate slingbacks - why, how and once again WHY) Oh wait. just thought of a horror story - slingbacks AND socks. AmIrite?
    In addition, there is not a way that I could express my pure hatred for musicals - movie musicals especially. I get so restless, bored out of my mind and just pissed off. Having said that - I only tolerated (note- tolerated, not loved) Phantom of the Opera as it carries some cultural and historical value.

  13. I don't get the socks with birkenstocks either. This is just criminal. I hope bloggers who show that received a freaking big ass check, cause I don't see any normal reason to wear socks into sandals. EVER.
    Dammmn girl, you don't like musicals ? Have you tried broadway shows when you were there ? I just saw one a few days ago and I was so amazed (I love musicals though)

  14. By the way, nice hair. In the prev post I didn't say anything (total disregard for my part). I liked your blonde-attempt to be almost white but blue is cooler.

    I am also no fan of tanning booths (or laser hair removal or the microwave or anything that looks potentially carcinogenic, but of course, the microwaves are fucking useful, while having hairy legs or being white as milk cares very little).

    I haven't seen pink lemonade ever. In my hole life. I'm freaking out.

    And yes, YES!! Rich people alredy have lots of money. You're supposed to take advantage of this, because THEY can pay you.

  15. Haha! I don't get tanning beds either. Well, I kind of do as it's a quick way to get tanned in cold countries, but I don't really care about having a tan! I used them before going on holiday because as it's supposed to be good to go with a bit of a tan already to get it started and so you're less likely to burn. I don't know if this is true or not!

    I love coconut water! It's so refreshing and it's great for hangovers!

  16. 2, 3 and 7 - AMEN! Coconut water definitely is the worst shit I ever tasted and I don't get the bloggers who post it on Instagram like every fucking day and never stop repeating how much they love it xD
