I've always wanted to be a redhead // meteor shower

I've always wished that I had long, curly red hair, and I've always been jealous of people who are natural gingers! So hooray for wigs - all of today I have been pretending that I am a natural redhead!
One of my sponsors, Choies, recently started selling wigs, so of course I had to give them a go. They're very soft and don't fall apart like this wig unfortunately has been from the moment I got it, and they also look more realistic - I've been wearing this one and this one out at night (without a hat too) and people just think it's my real hair. They're on special right now, and though I wouldn't buy it for $60, the $30 special is definitely a reasonable price.

On the science side of life, apparently there is a sweet meteor shower known as "the Geminids" peaking tonight and tomorrow night, and it is visible from basically all around the world (weather permitting, of course)! This meteor shower happens annually, and has been observed for over 500 years.

I was wondering why they occur at the same time each year, and this is why - it's because we run through the debris of an asteroid called 3200 Phaethon each time we rotate around the sun, this asteroid being the most likely candidate for the Geminid meteor shower with an orbit that runs right through Earth's orbit!
This year's meteor shower is meant to be particularly impressive because there is a new moon, meaning the night sky is nice and dark and ideal for spotting falling meteors! This page tells you when you should by looking at the sky depending what country you are in, and this post written by Phil Plait explains what meteors are and gives you a how-to guide on watching a meteor shower.

  1. Ah! I love meteor showers~~ I saw the Perseids for the first time this year, and it was gorgeous!! Too bad the bad weather will prevent me from seeing the Geminids :(

    Also, you look good as a red head!

  3. I want to have ginger hair too. Unfortunately I have black hair and it`s hard to dye it as red unless I bleach it.

    I`m from Japan and It`s really snowy today and too bad I can`t see the geminid this year.

  9. I love the outfit. It's so cute. And the wig looks very nice on you. You look great as a ginger. I don't know if I would ever wear a wig, but it sounds like a fun idea to try and experiment with my hair without making it permanent. Oh, and thanks for the meteor shower alert.

  13. You would make a pretty red head! I like the autumn colors of your outfit, and I am in love with that white pleated skirt! It would go well with so many things and can be worm for warm and cool weather.

  19. Love this! Although your darker style is awesome too, what really brought me to your blog was the cute, girly, vintage looks. This is perfect!

  20. Red hair is definitely the best! I always wish mine was genetically red, but I settle for keeping it red for years on end and fooling everyone.
    I really love your pretty little outfit here. That skirt is so cute and I love the bag too.
    Also I really wish I could see the stars better at my house, but there's just too much light pollution. We're probably getting some from Atlanta as well as the normal stuff around here. I'll still go outside and see if I can see any of the meteor shower though!

    1. Ah, I went out last night and stared at the sky for what seemed like ages and saw nothing as well :( damn light pollution!
      And red suits you so well, I wouldn't guess that it's dyed! Do you just use box dye?
