i hate when girls feel dumb for trying to see the best in people and then end up hurt or disappointed like no!! it’s those people that were dumb for misleading you. they took advantage of your kindness and generosity, and they’ll rot for it
what's wrong, little bunny? awe, are you getting tired? are your legs feeling weak? you know, you don't have to keep running. you could just give in and let me have you. I promise I won't be too rough.
I haven't made a pretty privilege post in a while...
So something that I see a lot of when it comes to trying to upgrade your looks is women splurging on nails and lashes and other random things that, truthfully, are very minuscule when it comes to your overall appearance. The things that will make the BIGGEST difference with the GRANDEST results (sans things that can only be changed with plastic surgery i.e. bone structure) are:
Like...those are the main areas. Seriously. You may be thinking, "what about style?" and yeaaahhh that too but it's not as impactful on it's own as you might think. How many girls have you seen wearing a plain t-shirt and leggings but they still look beautiful bc they have nice skin, a nice body, and pretty hair (and get pretty privilege bc of it) and how many girls have you seen that are lacking in those 3 departments but they have a stylish outfit? Sure they may get some compliments telling them that their outfit is cute but....that's about it. Clothes can be changed on a whim, but your body, hair quality and skin quality cannot, therefore they hold more weight.
Your base is the most important part.
Think of it like a cake. You want a good cake bc that's obviously the main thing that's going to be eaten. Frosting is nice too and anything else that comes after that like sprinkles, candles, cherries, etc is just a bonus but it's really not required nor does it make the CAKE ITSELF any better. If you take the cake away and all you have is a plate of frosting and sprinkles, who wants that?? Anyone would rather have a plate of plain cake, at least it's edible and it still tastes good.
Don't waste too much money, time, or energy focusing on getting the perfect sprinkles when your cake tastes bad...
Get your base in order. It's what matters most at the end of the day, sorry. You don't only want to look good when you're all dolled up, you want it to be your natural setting too.
“I have a hard time accepting diversity as a synonym for justice. Diversity is a corporate strategy. It’s a strategy designed to ensure that the institution functions in the same way that it functioned before, except now you have some black faces and brown faces. It’s a difference that doesn’t make a difference.
Diversity without structural transformation simply brings those who were previously excluded into a system as racist, as misogynistic, as it was before.”
the re-records are a huge nostalgia win for long term fans but it’s also a huge win for fans who feel like they joined the fandom too late and missed everything. now they kinda get their redo. everyone wins
i just discovered you and you are now literally my favorite tumblr blog that talks about femininity!!!! in every post you left NO CRUMBS!! what are no-nos (attitude, looks, etc) that you should avoid at all times to maximize our pretty privilege? Thank u hunny 🌷
Before anyone has a hissy fit that I’m “telling everyone they have to do these things”, keep in mind that the keyword anon used here is MAXIMIZE pretty privilege. Meaning, you don’t have to do these things. But if you want to take it to the next level, here ya go.
Do not leave the house with your hair less than perfect. You have a brush. You have a comb. You have hot styling tools. You have youtube tutorials. Do your hair and do it right. Hair is so important to women’s looks. So so so important. No one was born knowing how to do their hair perfectly, it takes time and practice. We’re in the middle of a pandemic. I’m sure you can find some time for it.
Ignore “advice” telling you that dieting and exercise is the devil. It’s not. It keeps your body fit and active and healthier, which is more visually appealing to the general public. No matter how much you hate to hear it, the fact of the matter is that most people will respond 10x better to a body that is in shape and at a healthy weight. You can say that it’s not fair or not right or the evil patriarchy at work but when you’re done complaining, the truth will still be that the world prefers fit bodies.
People respect modesty. People are turned on by skin. There is a balance that you can play with. Walk the line and walk it well. Fully covered up but with clothes that fit to show off your curves. Overall modest outfit but with some leg out. Play both sides.
Wear makeup. Doesn’t need much more of an explanation really. Bring out your best features, add some color and vibrancy to your face.
Do not wear loungewear or house clothes outside. Wear REAL CLOTHES when you leave the house. REAAAALLLL CLOOOTTHHHEEESSS. Dresses, skirts, jeans, blouses. Not sweats and hoodies. Dress up for crying out loud. Most people don’t do that these days, so you will definitely get pretty privilege from it. Refine your style and dress up properly every day.
Do not skip your daily grooming. Your beauty routine should include daily bathing, exfoliating, skin care, hair removal, nail care, and dental care. Smooth skin, white teeth, manicured nails, yes ma’am.
Heels are the ultimate pretty privilege shoe. No other shoe will ever have the same impact as heels do. You want to really maximize pretty privilege? Start wearing heels. High heels, low heels, block heels, platform heels, heeled boots, idc. You said you want max PP so there’s your answer.
Avoid cursing in public. A lot of people find it vulgar or crude.
NEVER fight in public. Not verbally, definitely not physically (????), not with your friends, not with your bf, not with customer service. Don’t cop an attitude, don’t use aggressive body language, don’t behave in a vicious manner. Control yourself. Control your emotions. Stay composed.
You get one drink and one drink only. Keep your senses sharp. Don’t look sloppy. “Party girl” and “alcoholic” are not words you want attached to you. Stop trying to keep up with the chuggers. Stop trying to out-drink your friends. And definitely stop posting pics of you getting wasted on girls night. Actually, limit how much alcohol you talk about and post pictures of in general.
Real hair, naturally occurring hair colors, makeup that is simple but impactful, non-tattooed skin, and clothing that isn’t too “out there” is what the absolute majority of people respond best to. That’s a fact. It doesn’t mean they don’t respond well to the contrary, it just means they respond BEST to what I said. Remember: the context here was MAXIMIZE pretty privilege.
Don’t let your politics become your main personality trait.
“Five is the oldest” “Klaus is the oldest” “Luther is the oldest!”
You fools, you absolute fools. Whoever is the oldest depends purely on which sibling is interacting with who and would change rapidly depending on which sibling you asked, therefore I’d like to provide you with the facts no arguments because I’m right xoxo (sorry these are fuzzy but you can def figure it out):
And no, I did not forget about Five, he has his own special category:
