So I created some beauty-related internet memes today...

I'm kind of obsessed with internet memes, so I thought it would be fun to create some that are unique to the beauty community. As is the case with internet memes, you don't ever really know who created each one, so if you share these with anyone (or on your own blog) you of course don't have to credit me (but I did create all of the following memes using memegenerator). Enjoy!

  1. I don't get the "one does not simply" line. I've seen it and heard it around, but have no idea where it came from. *clueless*

    1. In the first LoTR movie Boromir says, "One does not simply walk into Mordor" during the secret council meeting of the races of Middle Earth.

      Thats where it came from :)

    2. It basically infers that whatever topic it's referring to is being grossly underestimated. Using my meme as an example, you don't really just "paint" nails (the implication is that there's MUCH more involved, like technique, base coat, top coat, dry time, clean-up, etc.).

      For the origins of this meme, check out this link:

    4. You need to watch Fellowship of the Ring. Not just to understand the memes, but also because you need to watch it. It's the first film in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    5. Thanks everyone! It's been quite a while since I watched any of the LoTR movies. Consider me clued in. :D

  32. Hey, can we use your memes as avatars? That would ROCK!

    ReplyDelete
  33. LOVE this post, and THANK YOU because thanks to your post I now finally know the source of the "one does not simply" quote/picture. I had been killing myself looking for the connection to Game of Thrones. Can't believe I never thought of LotR.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I thought the Mordor one was referring to "painting" nails vs "polishing" nails. My mom was an instructor at a cosmetology school and I can't tell you how many times she would tell me, "You PAINT a house. You POLISH your nails." "You PLUCK a chicken. You TWEEZE your eyebrows."

    I still say it wrong. She still corrects me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. LMAO!!! Super funny, specially the one about nails

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hilarious! The success baby one is a new meme for me. I've been seeing him saying "Back off Devil, I belong to Jesus" from my born-again step-MIL. I actually laughed out loud, thankfully I was at home and not at work.
    I also appreciated the freak out when the free samples are all out. I ALWAYS seem to be in that camp, except for this last Target beauty bag run.
    Thanks for brightening my day. Time for me to go "simply paint" my nails Apple Mint again.

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are hilarious! Dead-on, all of them! :)

  38. Success Baby FTW!

    I'm totally using those! Thanks!!
