Colored toilet paper was introduced in the 1950s, and remained popular until the 1970s.  Homeowners loved coordinating everything in their bathroom, and could buy colors like pink, blue, lavender, yellow, beige, green, and even black.  
Sales began to decline as doctors pointed out that the dyes could cause skin sensitivities, and ecologists said that the dye could be harmful to the environment.  Scott still produced beige, tan and pink until 2004.  But never fear!  Renova is a company that creates highly pigmented toilet paper, including black and fuchsia.  It assures that it is “colorfast for its intended use,” and is “dermatologically and gynecologically tested.”

1:30 AM and I started packing. Been gathering my belongings for a while. Tomorrow morning I leave for Canterbury. Very excited.
I also got my hands on a low-end smartphone. Still need to figure out how it all rolls, but I think selfies will be much, much easier ;3
Today I managed to cram in a shoot that already has a lovely result… When I know for certain that I can share on Tumblr, I will! ^-^ I’m sure you guys will love it. It contains tons of pale skin, red hair and corset power.
