Miss Otis Regrets - Ella Fitzgerald (cover by Elizabeth Antoinette)

Hauntingly beautiful.

My sister put me on this blog http://elizayogaom.blogspot.com . Her name is Elizabeth ( @ElizaYogaOm ) and she is a yoga teacher in Portland, OR . What drew MY attention though was her handmade knitwear, Cardamom. I LOVE them!! Her personal style is dope too (from what I picked up on her blog). Also, everything is extremely reasonably priced as nothing I saw was over $45. Anyway, here are some on my favs from her. Shout out to @mrzbailey06 for the tip.

Rape Escape

  • Easy and very effective
  • Requires nothing but your body
  • Includes attack

Very useful to know, pass and share please.

Worth watching

I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this. 

I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head. 

Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away

So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out. 

I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot
