My Inside Out Islands

Last night I watched Pixar’s Inside Out for the first time.
I know…shock, gasp, what? A self-proclaimed Disney lover such as myself? Here’s the thing, I always knew I’d love it. I just also knew I’d cry. It’s Pixar for pete’s sake. If you didn’t cry in Toy Story 3, Wall-E, Up or Inside Out then you basically have no soul. I mean, the trailer for The Good Dinosaur.. have you watched it? That thing is definitely going to require tissues. At this point they should just hand out boxes with your ticket purchase.
I don’t enjoy crying, so I didn’t see it in the theaters. There’s no logic behind it. Just my 5 emotions doing their thing.
Anyways I’ve made a list of my personality islands. Things that are inherently me. Trust me, there are plenty other personalities in there. But these are the big ones. And they are each pretty self explanatory. No need for lengthy descriptions. Just a few well placed emojis! Here we go…

-Faith Island

-Family Island

-Nerd Island

-Adventure Island

-Creativity Island

-Girl’s Night Island

-Boy Island

-Playtime Island

-Gilligan’s Island
Ok this one’s not really one of them. 😉

What are your personality islands? (Joy wants to know!)

30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 24: Ginger from Gilligan’s Island

Today I chose Ginger from Gilligan’s Island. Did anyone else ever wonder where all her clothes and hair products came from. Not to mention the electricity for the hair curlers that were obviously needed to create this hair do. Come on!! I know the professor was always hot for her, but there’s no way curling iron was his top priority when inventing things out of coconuts and palm fronds.


I used my Chi straightener to create this one. But my hair is too short for the voluminous curls she has here. In fact I think she must have packed a few hair pieces along with her glittering gowns. Perhaps that’s how she accomplished this one on an uncharted desert isle. And I know what you’re thinking… “Where’s your tropical print bikini, Liz??” Well it’s too cold to be wearing my bikini out. So plain old clothes will just have to do. Plus I’m not planning on getting stuck on any desert islands any time soon so I don’t keep it handy. (Though maybe I should!!)



We’re in the final stretch. Less than a week left of nerdy hair. I already have the last styles chosen. But I’m always looking for suggestions for the next series. So keep them coming!!

Day 13: Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island

What could be more American on this (turning out to be quite nice) 4th of July, than Gilligan’s Island? Classic American television. I chose Mary Ann. Those pigtails and red bows have Independance written all over them!


Part the hair into pigtails. Give the ends some twisty, curly goodness and then add red bows. Mary Ann’s are satin, but I chose gross grain.
