99 cent stores

No hate to the studyblrs out there who

Have kanken backpacks, mildliners, macbooks and muji everything. You’re all amazing people and I love you all.

But here’s a shout out to the studyblrs who have had to use the same backpack they’ve had for years, who shop for stationary in the 99 cent store and those who re-use the same supplies year after year. You’re loved by me too.

Please fire me.  I think we all know working retail sucks, with rude customers and high expectations when you’re just one person.  But when you’re desperate enough to work at Dollar Tree of all places, you know it’s bad.  (And yes, you “funny” customer, everything IS INDEED a fucking dollar.)

My job description is basically “cashier first, stocker second”.  But apparently no one told me I was also a janitor, a babysitter, a shrink, and the brains behind the manager who can’t think for himself half the time.  Okay fine, I’ll clean up your crap that you’re too lazy to put back in its original spot that’s two feet away from you.  Fine, I’ll watch your kid for a moment if you need to use the restroom.  I’ll listen if you really want to tell me about the shitty day you’ve been having prior to coming to my register.  Okay manager, I’ll handle the customer for a few minutes while you back me up on the register.

However, if you’re going to take all the shit from the party aisle and shove it into the empty cavity on the shelf specifically made for bread, get out of my store.  If your child won’t listen to me after I’ve told them 4 times to stop pulling the balloons out of the corral, you need to put your child on a leash.  If you’re going to blame me for your shitty day and take all your frustration out on me, then I WILL make myself the reason you’re not in control of your own damn life.  And manager, for the love of whatever you believe in, do your fucking job as a manager and not talk to your wife about moving to Florida in *certain time frame*; stop bullshitting on the side-lines and help me on the register when I need it.

Don’t argue with me over something coming out to $1.06 because you didn’t think to bring change with you for tax.  Don’t argue with me when I say we only do exchanges and that I am not authorized to do full refunds.  And especially don’t argue with me when your card declines and you don’t carry cash.

And I swear, if you come into my store, and I have a small line of two people, and you want a new line to open because you woke up late for work and you’re too damn impatient to purchase a single bottle of water, I will gladly step away from my register to hand you an application so you can ring up your own fucking water, you impatient, sweaty, suit-and-tie dickweed.

How to dress store bought candles.

For those of you that don’t make your own candles you can still do something a little special for the store bought ones.

I get my 7 day candles from the 99cent store. Before using them for any spell work you need to make sure that you clean and cleanse them. I like to make a solution of salt, water and lemon essential oil spray it on a cloth and clean the glass and the top of the candle. This part is extremely important. You don’t want some 99 cent store workers energy on the candle not forgetting all the 100′s of people that might have picked it up and put it back :-p 

The candles that I made today are to be used on my altar for Hekate. This candle is pretty basic. If I was doing a spell candle I would write names, actions or something like that on the glass.

Remember, while you are dressing your candle concentrate on your intention for the candle. Thinking about what you’re gonna cook for dinner while making it will tarnish the affect.

What you need

  • Candles
  • Oils (I’m using homemade Hekate oil)
  • Screw or stick (For the holes)
  • Herbs
  • Cotton swab

Step one

Clean your candles and tools

Step Two

Take the screw or stick and pierce holes into the top of the candle. I use a pretty big screw so that I can go all the way down to the bottom of the candle.

Step Three 

Use a dropper to put one drop of oil into the hole. Then use the cotton swab to spread the oil through-out by dipping it in the hole. 

*If you don’t have a dropper you can cover the tip of the cotton swab and coat the inside that way*

*When working with oils, Less is more. The first time I ever used oil on a candle I covered the top with tons of it and it set on fire lol. So be careful!!!*

Step Four

Place small amounts of your chosen herbs over the holes and then use the cotton swab to push them inside. You can add as much of the herbs as you wish, it’s just easier to push down if you do small amounts at a time. I have in the past put small chip crystals down the holes too.

*Some witches add a layer of herbs to the top of the candle. I don’t do that with these ones because I leave them burning for a while and I don’t want the herbs to catch fire while I’m in another room*

Step Five

Once you have finished your candle it’s time to activate it. Some people write a spell or a blessing to say as they light it. Others say their intent for the candle out loud. Find the right way for you.

For this candle I say a little prayer (that I wrote) to Hekate and let her know that these candles are dedicated to her.

Thank you for reading

Lifted VS Boughten

I was too afraid to steal some of the things since it’s been a while since my last lifted… well anything even chapstick or something small.

🌿✨Lifted total:42.86
🌿✨Boughten Total:66.36

Stores Hit:

♡ Nordstrom Rack
♡Forever 21
♡Hot Topic
♡Ulta (Chickened Out)

 Yes, that last pair of socks in my first picture still has the tag on! I had so much anxiety that I rushed through in the dressing room and nearly got caught on my first time out. I need to be more careful and wake up!!! Not happy about it. Luckily it didn’t beep, but it could have… also I don’t have a hook or magnet yet so it’s staying there for a while :/

Also, last pic is my new lifting bag i’ll be using. It has those flaps so it doesnt completely zip, I’ll be able to steal lipstick or something small without having to open my bag at all/much. Very happy about it. :)


we sit on the curb of the street, right out in front of a 99 cent store. im leaning against your shoulder and you have your arm around me and the lights from the shop are giving us long shadows. its cold outside, but warm in our little bubble.


So I started with a white candle, and making it into a rosemary cinnamon offering to loki tomorrow

So what I am doing is I got a unscented white candle(the ones in glass) from target, it was like $2(have also seen at 99 cent store or dallor store)

I put it in a pot of boiling water with a little bit of salt for some extra cleansing boost

When it was mostly melted with the core still there I put rosemary to signify new blessed beginnings and to clear any ill chemistry between us because this is my first offering, and some cinnamon just for loki cuz I heard that’s what he likes

Next I’m going to wait around five minutes cuz all the rosemary is floating


oh look actually moa if she was a youtuber and her reaction to dollar stores cause lol motunui don’t have any

anonymous asked:

I can't believe some of the things you go through, like what you're dealing with now working these two jobs. You're amazing. I hope lots of good things come your way soon because you deserve them.

Honestly I’ve been through worse, never Ever work for the 99 cent only store
I don’t even say this for a humorous effect, even if you’re desperate in search you can and should keep looking elsewhere

Anyway, almost done!!!!! April 22nd will be my last Last day at the house of mouse!!!!
But while the double schedule will end there, I don’t plan on stopping!!!!
Applying for a lead position, and for the 10/week internship they’re gonna offer up
But at least at that point it will be the one same work place so it shouldn’t get as unbelievably hectic and straining!!!
But for now
18 more days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Two more scheduled weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!!

Tip: Cleaning A Beauty Blender

I really hate cleaning makeup brushes, but I especially hate cleaning makeup sponges. I felt like as much baby shampoo (usually what I use, sometimes with a little dot of olive oil) I used, still nothing happened. Like, jackshit. No matter how hard I squeeze, the stupid sponge is still brown with my foundation.

Until! I had read this on the Internet somewhere, but never tried it.

Bar Soap.  

I hear Dr. Bronner’s works best, but I just bough Dove Beauty Bar soap at my local 99 cent store and holy cow. I rubbed the sponge on the bar soap and after about 1 minute, it a) smelled not like a towel and b) was completely clean. NO foundation whatsoever.

I am so sold on this, especially because I don’t want to use my Sephora money on damn beautyblender solid.

Hey shoplifters

Before you hide behind trans people needing 5,000 dollars (who the hell even owns 5k worth of makeup unless they’re a professional anyways??) worth of fucking sephora makeup in order to pass…

Beauty guros do 99 cent and drug store makeup tutorials regularly. There’s literally hundreds of not THOUSANDS of tutorials doing looks either drug store makeup.

Cosplayer a regularly do tutorials for crossplaying with makeup that can be found in the drug store.

Literally there are thousands of videos doing pretty much any makeup look that you want using drug store makeup. Even looks that are done with high end sephora makeup can be replicated with drug store makeup.

You don’t need to fucking shop lift in order to have makeup. Go to the damn drug store and buy some fucking five dollar makeup and stop being a little shit face.

Also, stop hiding behind trans people in order to justify your shitty as actions. Pay for your god damn makeup like everyone else you lazy, entitled, selfish pieces of shit.
