anonymous asked:

Ehy, Emma, I know my answer is not about your blog but what do you think about Italy and Italians? Do you like them? i don't know, tell me what you want. I am Spanish and today at school we spoke about Italy so i am interested to know your opinion! sorry for my really bad English. xo

Hi! I only know a few Italians but they’ve all been lovely! Italian is really the only food I absolutely love. Every time we go out to eat, I’d pick Italian :’-) It is definitely a place I’d love to visit xx

jewishraypalmer  asked:

wow, can you believe it’s day two already?? i’d love to hear about felicity smoak + food

Her mother had stacks of recipes, half-finished, half-nonsense. 

“It’s all in my head, sweetie,” Donna would say to young Felicity, as she tore apart the kitchen. “I know what I’m doing.”

Sometimes things didn’t catch on fire.

But it’s something Felicity takes with her when she starts running her own holidays, when she starts making Chanukkah meals. Oliver is useless, but Thea isn’t. 

Thea gets it when Felicity says, “Sprinkle just a smidge of pepper,” “Add a handful of shredded carrots to the latke mixture,” “Just do it by feel.”

Because Felicity can’t put into words what that feels like. “It’s just a feeling, Oliver!” 

“Like this?” Thea asks. 

Yes. Like that.

So Chanukkah cooking always turns into Felicity and Thea, dancing around each other in the kitchen, and her apartment has never felt more like home than with the smell of soup simmering, of latkes frying.

Cat Town, Japan.

Listen up, y’all. I’m about to tell you guys about the #1 cat lady destination in Japan: Yanaka.

Yanaka is a neighborhood in Taitō Ward, Tokyo. It’s a super traditional part of town filled with winding alleys, shrines and meticulously maintained temples. It’s a lovely place, but today we’re here to focus on the thing that makes Yanaka a magnet for nerds like me: good good kitties.

You see, Yanaka is a neighborhood with a butt-ton of stray cats. This makes sense, since it’s basically cat heaven. The streets and alleys of Yanaka are essentially just a series of hidey holes and ideal sunning spots that happen to have humans running around. Thankfully these humans are quite appreciative of their feline overlords, which is why part of Yanaka has essentially just become cat themed. It’s honestly like the neighborhood has just agreed that this is their thing now.

The first cat-themed establishment we visited in Yanaka was Nekoemon, a café with a scant 13 seats that’s covered in cat decor. The special thing about this place is that they offer a set (for roughly $15USD) that includes a cat-shaped cookie, a coffee drink of your choice and a little unfinished maneki neko figurine. Why the figurine? ‘Cause you’re about to customize yourself a neko, my friend.

The owner asked customers to choose between figurines to attract either luck or money. We picked luck and got our maneki neko along with a full assortment of markers. The owner even set out a few already painted figurines to provide inspiration.

Aside from the novel figurine offer, the café also had genuinely delicious lunch sets. They weren’t cat themed (though they had plenty of dessert options that were), but it was healthy and extremely tasty. I honestly recommend Nekoemon on all fronts. 

Here’s my finished maneki neko. Followers of the blog may recognize him.

Nekoemon is great, but it isn’t even at the center of the cat madness. No, for that we’re headed to the shopping area: Yanaka Ginza.

Even if you don’t care about cats (in which case I’ve got to ask… why did you read this far?) this street is lovely. There are shops for handcrafted items, souveniers, sweets, savory foods and a lot more.

If you aren’t all sugared up from Nekoemon, you can always stop by Yanaka Shippoya, a shop that sells cat tail donuts. The donuts are named as cats would be rather than for their flavors, and they’re honestly very nice. We had a sesame camembert one that was lovely and not too sweet.

Donuts not your bag? You can always satisfy your sweet tooth with some maneki neko shaped taiyaki from Maneki-ya. Fluffy outside, rich and creamy inside. We got the matcha custard and red bean flavor and it did not disappoint.

Okay, so you’ve had enough sugar to last you a lifetime. Know what has no calories? Cat accessories. Yanaka Ginza has a bunch of shops that specialize in just… cat stuff. Cat jewelry? Check. Cat kitchenware? Check. Cat bento? Check. Cat bags? Dear heavenly lord, check. There’s even a store that specializes in making custom cat stamps. Seriously.

That’s just one tiny corner of just one shop. We visited 3, but saw more. Most of the shops had signs asking visitors to refrain from taking photos, so we kept the camera packed away. Honestly, I get it. These are shops best explored in person. It’s fun to see how the owner of each shop has a unique aesthetic and stocks totally different items (though there is certainly some overlap). You can tell these stores are curated by cat lovers.

Oh, and of course we can’t forget the feline residents themselves. When we first hit the area we saw zero cats. None. I was honestly really disappointed, but it turns out they were all hiding from the rain that started shortly after. Those kitty instincts served them well and kept them dry, and once the rain passed we suddenly saw little cat faces poking out all over.

This sweet girl roamed the cemetery and was the first kitty we met.

Shortly after we met a pair of housecats that chirped at us quite enthusiastically.

This orange boy said goodbye to us just before we left the area. 

In conclusion: if you love fluffbutts and toe beans and are near Tokyo, get thee to Yanaka. It’s a fantastic weekend day trip that isn’t crowded to the brim with tourists, the whole neighborhood has a relaxed and peaceful vibe, and you can come home decked out in cat stuff and filled with sugar. What more could you even want? 

My tips for learning hangul!

안녕하세요 여러분!
Hello everyone!

Let’s talk about the most crucial step towards learning the Korean language, which is learning how to read and write hangul! I know it seems scary and impossible at first glance. But did you know that the Korean alphabet was created with the purpose of being easy to learn?

About this sensitive content stuff… I requested a review from the Tumblr staff for at least ten posts in the last two weeks - got a response for one (not the first I reported), so this looks like a slow process (no wonder since more and more blogs get the undeserved NSFW tag lately, I don’t know what’s happening.)

Anyway, you don’t have to message me anymore about that; I’ll check it out in the app (since it’s not visible on the web ffs) now and then - and request reviews. Thank you for your help 😘

jin: jin would be heartbroken, he couldn’t believe that his beautiful princess ever felt that down about themselves that they had to do that. he would pull you close and hold you tight against him. “jagiya?” he would say as he placed small kisses along the scars on your arm, “i love you so much, okay? you can come to me whenever you feel sad.” jin and you would eat so much junk food and binge watch movies until all you could feel was jin’s love.

yoongi: yoongi would be furious. furious at the person who said something so shitty that would make his precious baby hurt themselves. his hands would curl into fists as he let out deep breaths. “it’s okay yoongi,” you would say, “it was a long time ago, yoongz” you comforted him. a sniffle would sound and your heart would drop, “please don’t cry yoongi, it’s okay baby.” you would hold him in a tight hug as he let out his frustrations. “i love you so much jagiya, more than anything in the whole world.

hoseok: hoseok would pull you as tight as he possibly could to his chest and cried along with you as you told the story of where your scars came from. “you are worth it princess, anyone who tells you that you are anything less than perfect is fucking wrong,” he sniffled, “i love you so much.” you nodded your head that was tucked into his chest and placed a kiss on the exposed skin above his shirt. “you’re perfect two hobi, i guess we make one hell of a couple.” he laughed and kissed your forehead. 

Originally posted by wonhobe

namjoon: namjoon would be angry and worried at the same time. “the scars are old,” you would say as he confronted you, “i went through a hard time.” soft kisses would be placed anywhere and everywhere all over your body as he whispered compliments to you and told you how amazing, perfect, and beautiful you are. you giggled as he kissed your neck on it’s most sensitive spot. “joonieeeee,” you giggled and he fingers began to tickle your sides. “i love your laugh, jagi,” he said, “you’re gorgeous.”

Originally posted by namseok

jimin: jimin would feel very protective over you. “i can’t believe someone had the audacity to say that to you!” he would say as you told him the story. “jiminie, baby, it’s okay,” you said, “i’m happy now, you make me so happy.” at that jimin would smile to wide and pull you down into his lap on the couch. “you’re gorgeous,” a kiss on the forehead, “amazing,” now the cheek, “beautiful,” on the nose, “and the love of my life,” the kiss he pulled you into would be full of so much emotion you never wanted to pull away. “i love you too my jiminie.”

Originally posted by softsugamon

taehyung: taehyung would be all hugs and kisses, he would never want his baby to feel anything less than perfect. the pads of his thumbs would slowly trace over the old scars as he placed a soft kiss over every single one. his arms would be wrapped tight around your waist as he kissed all over your arms, chest, neck and face. “my beautiful baby,” he would praise, “so gorgeous, i love you jagiya.” his deep voice in your ear and lips all over your body made all bad thoughts go away. 

Originally posted by j-cypher

jungkook: jungkook would feel immensely sad and worried. “i love you, you know that?” he would constantly ask you, making sure you knew how much he loved you. “i know kookie, i love you too.” he would pull you into a tight hug and lean his chin on your head as he held you close for what seemed like forever. “don’t hurt yourself again, okay?” he placed a kiss on your nose, “come to me whenever you feel bad and we can talk it out, okay? i love you so much baby.”

DONATE TO FLOOD VICTIMS

as some of my followers know, i am from Houston and have lived there for the past six years. as many of you know, houston and surrounding areas have been hit hard by hurricane harvey and the damage is only getting worse.

one of my best friends cancelled her baby shower and is using the money to help people living in poverished areas. she has two trucks that are being loaded with supplies and sent out this weekend.

I have 3,800 followers on this account. if everyone donated a dollar….. i mean. please, guys. my friends are giving up their pets and evacuating their homes and seeking refuge and food and shelter.

what can you do?

  1. donate through paypal. my paypal is arielmikayla@gmail.com and my balance is empty. I will post screenshots in a seperate post to prove that I am not taking any money for myself. I will also post pictures of the trucks full of supplies before my friend leaves this weekend. this is the best way to help because I will be matching EVERY donation up to $1,000 - directly out of my personal savings.
  2. donate to a gofundme, organization, or fundraiser.
  3. SHARE THIS POST! in addition to matching any donations, i will also donate $1 for every reblog this post gets up to $1,000. if this post gets over 10,000 reblogs, I will donate an additional $500.
  4. message me privately! do you have Facebook or other social media? I will connect with you and add you to groups put together by people I know personally.
  5. tag your friends on this post and ask them to share. I have posts with 7k notes so there’s NO REASON this shouldn’t get the same amount of attention!

I have a friend who has been at the George R Brown convention center for 30 hours, serving food to families who have been displaced. my parents and brothers are unable to leave their house. my friend, her husband, 3 toddlers and 3 pets have been evacuated from their home and their in laws’ home. they have no other family in the area so they are going to be taken to a shelter. another friend is stuck at the hospital while her husband and three month old baby are trapped in their house. another friend is on a boat, rescuing people from around the city.


please share this post and tag your friends

tldr: donate to my paypal arielmikayla@gmail.com and I will match every donation up to $1000

The Chocobros React: You Murmur Their Name In Your Sleep

REQUESTED ;

Another request! I’m honestly writing these much faster than I usually manage; I guess it’s because I’m so excited about running this blog haha
— Sky ヾ( ̄◇ ̄)ノ〃

In case you’d like to request something

⇢ NOCTIS

The evening had originally been full of plans; of things that you were initially going to do together—like go for a walk, buy some food, stuff like that. But then all of the night’s itinerary went straight out of the window when Noctis asked you if you’d like to have a nap. And who are you to say no to a nap when it’s with your favourite person? Obviously you immediately say yes.

And so, you stumbled to the bedroom together, sharing small smiles and preparing yourselves for what would most likely be the best sleep either of you had had in a while. In fact, spending this time with Noctis has so much of an affect on you that the world of languid sluggishness and darkness soon approaches with open arms, sweeping you into a world of sweet, sweet dreams. So sweet, in fact, that you begin to mumble certain incoherences in this clearly vivid dream. Noctis, who was just settling into the lull of sleep and the dark abyss that represent his dreams, heard your mumbles and shifted in order to hear them just that little bit better.

“Noctis..” A frustrated whine permeates the air around you as he begins to realise that you’re dreaming about him. The actual thought of it would almost be too endearing to handle, but he’d certainly manage, simply resolving to press closer against your side and welcome lethargy with newfound happiness.

⇢ GLADIOLUS

It would have been a long day, full of tiresome activities—you’d gone on a hunt together, in fact. You’d had a close call with the goblins you’d been asked to take down, where a few of them had crowded around you and effectively cut you off from everyone else. Gladiolus had—of course—been quick to run to your aid, but you certainly didn’t leave that fight entirely unscathed.

You’d have finally got to a hotel in the early hours of the evening, in need of a bath and a comfortable bed to lay down upon. By the time your head hits the pillow, you’d be out like a light.

Gladiolus would take a bit longer to get to bed, the adrenaline rush that accompanied battles not quite having worn of yet (that, and the fact he’d still be a tad bitter about how everyone had denied his suggestion of going camping). But when he finally does gingerly attempt to get into bed beside you, he’d watch in horror as you turn over, small noises escaping your lips. He’d be surprised entirely when it’s his name you’re muttering amongst the cavern of sleep that surrounds you, he can’t help but smile. And would continue to smile right up until he falls asleep, because you’re just too darn cute for your own good, in all honesty.

⇢ IGNIS

WIth Ignis, you certainly wouldn’t intend to fall asleep—it would just happen; you’d be spending time together in silence as he reads a book and you lay down on the sofa, the perfect upside down view of him on display as you would lazily cast your gaze about the room. Until, suddenly, you find your eyelids drooping and sleep coming your way.

At first, he wouldn’t notice at all, completely content with his literature. But that’s until he spares a single glance in your direction and notes the fact that you’ve fallen away into a gentle slumber. He’d pay it no heed, deciding to once more return to his book and its fascinating plot line. But then you’d start mumbling something, which he can’t quite make out—oh. That’s his name. 

The smile that would light up Ignis’ face would be oddly dazzling as he listens to the way your velvety voice rings out despite the sleepiness tacked onto the sound in its rivulets of exhaustion. He’d decide to keep the knowledge of this single occurrence to himself, finding solace in the completely soft and captivating way you’d spoken.

⇢ PROMPTO

Prompto would have taken you out for a whole day just to see the tourist attractions of the city you’d decided to visit. He’d spent practically twelve hours hanging off of your arm and pointing out different things, taking pictures as he usually would (you’d dreaded to think how many must have been of you).

Nonetheless, by the time you get back to your hotel, your feet ache, your stomach is full of the food you’d just had at a restaurant, and your arms are full of bags that you’d refused to let Prompto hold despite his constant offers. There is nothing you’d have liked more than sleep at that moment. And so, without so much as an enquiry sent Prompto’s way, you get changed into your nightshirt and get into bed. The boyfriend in question would spare just a second to look forlornly in your direction before settling in a chair and busying himself with going through the photos he’d taken during the day. 

He must have pent a good forty minutes absorbed in staring at that camera, because by the time he remembered to check on you and make sure you were comfortable, you had fallen asleep. After leaning down, Prompto pressed a soft kiss to your forehead before moving to stand back up. It’s within that moment that you’d opened your mouth to speak, a drowsy lilt to your slumber-cloaked voice. “Prompto,” You’d whispered, forcing a rush of heat to dash straight to his cheeks as a smile tugged at the corners of his lips. He would have wished to capture that event within a photo, but alas, he understood that the memory of such a lovely thing would have to be enough.

EAT MORE PLANTS🌟🌿🍉🍊🍆🌽🍓 not only is it the best for our bodies, but also for our planet + all those we share it with. Not to mention the cheapest AND most delicious way to eat😋
The key to a plant based diet is eating a variety of different foods everyday and most importantly, ‘replacing’ animal products instead of 'removing’ them. Veganism isn’t about restriction, it’s finding kinder, more healthful alternatives!
🙌🏼
I wrote up a NEW BLOG POST all about the 5 Food Groups of a Plant-based Diet to get all the nutrients we need, find out optimal health + thrive on this lifestyle!! I hope you’ll find it helpful, the link is in my bio❤️✨

Real Writers Have Day Jobs

I received an anonymous message the other day that is not all that unlike so many other messages I’ve received since I first started blogging. It reads:

”My parents always urged me not to become a writer. “Oh but, you need something that brings food on the table,” “I won’t be paying your bills,” “No one guarantees your success” stuff like that. I’m 18, about to enroll to uni for a degree I kinda sorta like and see myself liking more in the future. But I still want to write. And my parents’ patronizing always stops me, even if they aren’t there, I can’t develop a story further because I feel like I’m not good enough. I truly just want to write. Help.”

Little space all by myself

Grabby hands at nothing

Mindless gurgles and baby sounds

Saying “dada” to no one and for no reason in particular

Giggles when nothing is funny

Talking to/cuddling with/playing with my stuffies

Feeding myself little food

Coloring pictures and telling myself how pretty they are

Onesies 

Lonely baby dance parties 

Making up songs

Toys

Play-doh

Whining about nothing

Curling up in a ball so I feel tiny

Feel free to add what you do in little space all alone!!

Safety Disclaimer

I don’t want to put a disclaimer on every. single. post. So here’s a collective one:

  1. Know how to be safe with fire.
  2. Know how to ward and protect before using magic or working with spirits.
  3. Know how to cleanse before using magic or working with spirits. 
  4. Don’t take everything you read as fact; do research of your own.
  5. Get a basic knowledge of herbal medicine and botany before witching. Don’t ingest herbs you know nothing about. Don’t ingest herbs that may mess up the effects of your medication. Learn about dem plants.
  6. Don’t put magical concoctions in people’s food or anywhere near them if you don’t know about all their allergies/intolerances.
  7. Don’t bury non-biodegradable things in unsafe places.
  8. Don’t pour salt on plants, yo.
  9. Magic can ease mental illness and physical problems, for sure, but it is not a substitute for a trained professional.
  10. Be aware of laws that affect you.

It’s not my responsibility to teach you these things, in all honesty. 

This is my blog. I’m putting out the information that I want to. Y’all’d’ve gotsa use your brains.
