Puffy, in vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. Although 100% straight, for you (and possibly Cait) I'd be willing to convert. Should you ever decide to divorce your husband and be willing to consider a girl who worships every word that exits your lips (or keyboard) please let me know. If we hurry we may have a chance to place our engagement announcement in the New York Times -just next to Bitsie's and David's. PS. Country club is pre-booked. Love, Popsy

Thank you for your offer and I want to let you know that I am seriously considering it. I’m easily swayed and can easily be bought.  I have absolutely no morals nor do I have a backbone.  Sexual identification is for sissies. Anyone with a good sense of humor and a reasonably priced bottle of Pinot Noir has a shot with me.  If you own a house or have access to one on Nantucket, I’m your girl, no questions asked.  If not, I can still be swayed but it may take just a little more than the promise of mini quiches at a swanky country club wedding.  But keep up the good work and we may yet see the NY Times wedding announcement of Anon and Puffy.

Having someone help sell your art isn't a bad thing at all. You are crazy for letting it down. It was a great opportunity to get your art out there and especially since they're obviously selling a lot. If it's still an offer you should take it

I think you misunderstood. He was offering me 40% of the income MY products and designs that I make with my own brain and hands would sell. I used to sell art a lot and I marketed everything myself. I bought everything myself. I supported myself and did everything myself and I don’t need to sell my soul to people who have never had to work like that for what they’re doing for a promotion or popularity. It does not feel right to me in my heart and it’s just not what I’m about. Im not stupid or crazy

Reactions of nishinoya+tsukki+bokuto+kuroo+kenma+sugawara to their s/o giving them a handmade gift, but they're really embarrassed because they saw other gifts that girls had bought them and feel that theirs is shoddy in comparison? (If that makes sense)

I never expected it to be this long? I kept on grinning like an idiot while writing Kuroo’s part what is wrong with me

Nishinoya

“___-chan! You should’ve given me this sooner for a moodbooster!” he said, as he took the box of honey-soaked lemon from your hand. You saw a girl giving him a box of beautifully made bento and got anxious. It is now, in the middle of timeout that you finally have the courage to give it to him. “Thank you, I’ll work hard!” he grins before running back to the court, leaving you frozen in a stupid smile.


Kuroo

“I-it’s stupid I know, who the heck gives a pencil case to an 18 year old?  B-but please accept it, Kuroo-kun..,” you stuttered. Deep down, you’re even more nervous than this. Today is the last day for third years before graduation,  lots and lots of people has asked for his buttons and gave him gifts; kneepads, chocolates, and other good stuffs. And here you are making an amusement for yourself for making a pencil case and giving it to him.

“Thank you, ___! Now I don’t have to bother carrying a pen on my hand all day!” he said with a grin, much to your surprise. “And also..,” his grin dropped, making you bite your lip in worry. “Um.. I kept this for you..,” he said, giving you his second button and then walking away as he feels face gets even warmer.


Tsukishima

“P-please accept this..,” you said as heat creeps up to your face,. Tsukishima Kei is a lot of thing but warm, even when he’s actually nice very deep inside. You’ve seen a lot of girls giving him gifts, and he only accepted them with a thank you and sometimes a slight bow. And they were all store-bough gifts, which makes you even more anxious about your handmade scarf.

But unexpectedly, Tsukishima took the scarf, trying to crack a polite smile on his face. Is he blushing? “Thank you, ___. Did you make this yourself?”


Bokuto 

“Compared to other gifts that you’ve got, this might not be much.. it’s not expensive like your other gifts and it’s just a charm anyway..,” you muttered as you give him the owl-charm that you made the other night, “G-good luck for tomorrows match!” you slightly-bowed and turned around to walk away, but Bokuto puts a hand on your shoulder.

“Woah, ____! Is this handmade? So cool!” he said with glimmering eyes, “and it’s not enough just to give me a charm and a good luck you know.. Make sure you’re in the front row tomorrow, okay? I’m off to practice!” he waves at you.


Kenma

Both him and you are currently a blushing mess, as you shoves your handmade apple pie right in his chest, “I-I’m sorry, this might not be as good as the chocolates other people gave you this morning.. I wanted to make chcoolate but pie is the only thing I can bake. B-but you don’t have to eat it ofcourse!” you said while staring at the ground. 

There was silence for a while, before Kenma took the gift, “…. what are you saying.. I’m not that fond of chocolate.. This looks better so thank you..,” he said, trying to hide the slight blush on his cheeks.


Sugawara

Sugawara has been trying to figure out why you’ve been avoiding him for the whole day. The truth is, you were thinking whether to give him the sandwhich or not. It’s just a sandwich ofcourse, but earlier today a kouhai bought him the expensive bread from cafetaria, which he tried to refuse but they insisted. And by the time you finally decide to give him the sandwich, it’s already the end of school.

“Why are you so embarassed about it? Isn’t handmade sandwich have fresher ingredients so it’s more good?” he said with a smile. “You won’t get it, Sugawara-kun!” you said, still a little embarassed. “I’d always appreciate your effor okay? I was so worried today because I thought that I did something wrong…” he said, scratching the back of his neck.

Just ordered my own deck of tarot cards. Finally. I’ve been debating back and forth as to whether I should or not, so I finally went FUCK IT and bought a set I’ve been eyeing for awhile.

The Prisma Visions set.

Guys I’m so excited you have no idea how long I’ve been wanting my own tarot card deck.

No. Idea.

Fuck.

I hope it gets here soon.

Just press play!

I finished phase 1 (Burn) of Chalean Extreme which focuses on 10-12 reps per movement. Next phase (Push) focuses on heavier weights and 8 reps per movement. Nice to see a full sheet filled in to show my hard work! I didn’t skip a single workout and rested 1day a week (second rest day was used for soccer).

Also, here is a picture of my weights. I bought most of my weights either used (plates) or on sale (dumbbells). It doesn’t cost a lot to get started on strength training. I need to stop by the used sports equipment store and see if they have some 20# plates. Yep, I’m increasing my weights!

I started a 6 week challenge with an online group. Just focusing on hitting my macros and continuing on with CLX. No weighing in either. Only measurements taken on Mondays. This should keep me on track for the summer.

My dad bought a car for me and my sister. The papers say I’M the owner but that’s just a technicality. I am so grateful to him -.- I’m not sure that I deserve it but the truth is, where I live it’s borderline impossible to function without a car because I live kinda in the middle of nowhere. The main thing is, though, he didn’t have to do this, at all. We had a car at our disposal but it was my grandpa’s car and he’s very anxious about it which makes ME anxious. Plus, it’s very very old and very unreliable. SO. Bottom line is - my dad bought me a fuckin’ car even though he didn’t have to and I am eternally grateful to him for this. Not much will change for me, I’ll still have to pay for the gas and all but it’s all my responsibility now and I’m looking forward to making another step towards proper adulting.

I should have bought more corduroy it was on sale for $5 I want to make skirts like the American apparel cord ones except big enough for a real human :)

i just remembered that emma and the blackthorns have church now. emma carstairs and the blackthorn children, who dyed their other cat’s fur pink against it’s will. i don’t know who i should feel bad for, church or the blackthorns and emma.

Exo reaction when they are out of condoms right when they need it

Sehun:* can’t hold it in anymore* Give me that wallet, I’m going to the drug store to buy some.

Kai: Well you know that we can still do some other things that don’t involve a condom….

Tao:*on his way to the drug store to buy condoms* I hope you’ll make it worth all the trouble when I get home…..and send. 

Kyungsoo:*exasperation written all over his face cause he doesn’t know what you do with them* I swear to god, it’s like you eat condoms when u are bored. I just bought a pack a week ago.

Chanyeol: Y/N:Baby.. we have a problem. We don’t have condoms anymore.

Jam the Pot

To get those pot-stirrers to stop it already.

Materials

  • paper
  • writing utensil
  • small bowl; i.e. cereal bowl
  • salt dough; homemade or store-bought (i.e. Play-Doh)
  • stick
  • oven
  • baking sheet
  • oven mitt or potholders

Procedure

Preheat oven to 200*F (93*C).

Summarize the course of events on the paper. Bullet points, Person A said and then Person B said, a synopsis, whatever works. Put a line under the sentence that marks where things should have ended. Under that, write the name(s) of the party(-ies) that are making it go longer than necessary. Set the paper aside.

Prep your salt dough. Get a good-size glob of it, and smush it into the base of your bowl. Flatten it out. Get that paper back over near you, and tear it to shreds. Itty bitty tiny pieces. Nitpick the scenario apart like those pot-stirrers are, the moment you read these very instructions. Shove them into the jar. Grab your stick, and knead the paper shreds into the dough. Continue to stir until sloppy peaks form, or it’s well mixed.

Make the paper-dough into a glob again, and flatten it once more against the sides of the bowl. The paper-dough should now be bowl-shaped. Transfer the dough bowl to the baking sheet. Protect yourself with an oven mitt, and put the sheet into the oven. Let it bake for 5 minutes to harden.

When it’s done, you should have the result of a thorough stirring of the entire incident, all events and parties now stuck in their tracks. Including those pesky perpetuators.

remember that post that was like “huge dicks are like communism, they’re much better in theory than in practice” or something? someone had said “u should put that on a tshirt” so i did. i put it on a zazzle tee, and i have 1.25 in my account because some people actually bought it. actual real live human beings purchased a shirt that said “#huge dicks are like communism” on it.

I have black hair. Any advice on how to get it super shiny like Adriana Lima?

Good night, beautiful!

No matter what your hair texture is, there are ways to step up its shine! For the shiniest possible hair, practice hair care habits that keep it healthy and strong. Here you have some tips on how to get shiny, healthy and beautiful hair:

  1. Deep condition your hair — If your hair isn’t shiny because it’s dry, dull and frizzy, a deep conditioning treatment should put things right. You can get a store-bought deep conditioner or make your own using coconut or olive oil. Once a week, follow these steps to deep condition your hair:
    • Wet your hair.
    • Comb 1 to 3 tablespoons of coconut oil or olive oil from your roots to your tips.
    • Cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic wrap.
    • Let it sit for one hour or overnight.
    • Shampoo your hair. You may need to wash it two or three times to remove the oily residue.
    • Rinse with cold water.

  2. Apply leave-in conditioner while it’s wet — If your hair is on the dry side, it may look a little dull after it dries. Using a good leave-in conditioner can keep it from getting dried out and dull. While your hair is still wet, apply a dime or quarter-sized amount of deep conditioner to your hair. Use a comb to comb it down to your tips.

  3. Let it air dry — Sure, a Brazilian blowout will leave your hair looking shiny and sleek, at first. After awhile, blowing out and straightening your hair will damage it and leave it looking dull and rough. When you allow your hair to air dry, you don’t risk causing damage. After a few weeks or months, you should start to see a noticeable difference in the texture of your hair — it will be softer, with more shine.
    • Avoid using heat styling tools as much as possible. Straightening irons, curling irons, and so on provide temporarily pretty results, but in the long run they’ll leave you with dull hair.

  4. Use a finishing oil — Once your hair has air-dried, smooth finishing oil through your locks. A good finishing oil will add instant shine and protect your hair from damage. Wait until your hair is fully dry for best results. A little goes a long way, so use no more than a dime-sized amount or so, depending on the length of your hair. You can buy a special hair oil, or use one of these oils as a finishing oil:
    • Coconut oil, olive oil, argan oil.

  5. Try a shine serum — This is a product that has been formulated specifically to add shine to your hair. Shine serums contain silicones and other ingredients that cause your hair to look instantly shiny. Most shine serums can be used on either wet or dry hair.
    • Using a shine serum every day could end up having the opposite effect of what you’re going for. The silicones that make your hair shiny build up in your hair over time, causing it to look dull. You might want to save serum for special occasions only.
    • Look for a serum that’s alcohol-free. Alcohol can cause hair to dry out.

  6. Keep frizz to a minimum — Frizz is the enemy of shiny hair. A halo of frizz makes hair look dull and rough instead of shiny. Whether your hair is straight or curly, you can tame your frizz in the following ways:
    • Wash your hair with cool water. The cool temperature helps your hair shaft lie flat, rather than standing up. You’ll be amazed at what a difference this easy step makes.
    • Don’t towel dry your hair roughly. Pat it dry gently, then let it finish air drying. Towel drying roughly puffs up your hair and makes it frizzy.
    • Switch from a brush to a wide-tooth comb. Brushes tend to break hair, especially when it’s curly or wavy. Broken hair strands will stand up and turn into frizz. Use a wide-tooth comb. Detangle when your hair is wet, starting at the tips and working up to the roots.
    • Sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase. Curly heads know that this trick does wonders for frizzy hair. Cotton fabric absorbs moisture, leaving your hair dry and frizzy. Satin or silk will preserve your hair in its natural, non-frizzy state.

  7. Get regular trims — Removing frayed split ends goes a long way toward making your hair look shinier. Ask your stylist not to use chemicals and heat styling tools on your hair.

  8. Avoid harsh treatments — Dyeing, bleaching, and permanently straightening or curling your hair can have damaging long-term effects. Altering your hair from its natural state will eventually cause it to get dried out and prone to breakage. Avoid harsh treatments whenever possible.
    • If you really want to dye your hair, look for a natural alternative. For example, henna dye is plant-based and can actually be nourishing to hair.
    • Use honey or chamomile tea as a natural lightener.

  9. Protect your hair from outside elements — The sun, extreme temperatures, and environmental pollutants may be making your hair look less than optimal.
    • Use an hair sunscreen.

  10. Have a healthy diet and lifestyle — No matter what you do to your hair, it won’t look naturally shiny unless you’re healthy from the inside out. Eating well and staying hydrated have a big effect on the way your hair looks.

Hope it helped you, beautiful. May The Lord bless you!

When To Throw Away Pantry Staples

It’s obvious when it’s time to throw out the cheese or when the eggs have gone bad. But other pantry staples like flour and spices can appear as good as the day you bought them. These ones are tricky. Many of us are eating expired foods! Here’s a helpful food expiration guide I found off Food52 that should help you decide when it’s time to dispose!

Dried Pasta
Expiration: No more than 2 years.
Store it in an airtight container to withstand 2 years. Toss it if the noodles look blotchy or discolored.

Whole-grain or milled rice
Expiration: 6 months/forever
Whole-grain rice deteriorates faster than milled (white) rice. To make whole-grain rice last longer than 6 months, stash it in the refrigerator or freezer. Milled rice can last a lifetime if stored properly in a cool, dry place and in an airtight container.

Canned goods
Expiration: Up to 2 years.
There’s no exact expiration date to when canned foods are edible or not, but they definitely lose their nutrients overtime. The rule of thumb is to throw out cans that are 2 years old. The natural chemicals of high-acid foods react with the container, causing changes to taste and texture.

Olive Oil
Expiration: Up to 20 months
There are three threats to olive oil: heat, light and air. Keep it in a dark-tinted glass or ceramic container with a pour top or tight-sealing cap.

Bread Crumbs
Expiration: 6 months
Since they’re dried, bread crumbs last longer than regular bread. Keep it in an airtight container, and if stored properly, they may even last longer than 6 months.
