David Bowie has just gone and done it again. Kicking ass from beyond the grave. Swept the floor at the Grammy’s tonight. Winning all 5 nominations for Blackstar!

I’m over the fucking moon I’m so pleased with this result.
After all the riff-raff with artists like Skepta winning over him in NME 2016. This is his moment. Wham Bam Thankyou M'aam!

SKINCARE TIPS

Things that I wish I had learned long ago so my skin wouldn’t be as much of a mess as it is

1.) Jar packaging is a big no. Any beneficial ingredients will break down with prolonged exposure to oxygen. Plus, unless you have a small plastic beauty spatula, it’s flat out unhygienic. Products with pumps are the best and are way less messy, too!

2.) If a product contains alcohol (labeled as alcohol denatured or SD-40 alcohol) DO NOT USE IT. Alcohol is a major irritant and will destroy your skin and dry it out terribly! If it’s cetearyl alcohol, it’s fine and will not cause irritation. It’s just there as a thickener to make sure your product doesn’t separate

3.) Try and avoid fragranced products the best you can. Even though we all love using shit that smells good, fragrance is also an irritant. If it’s really low on the ingredient list and the product doesn’t smell like much, it should be fine but still has a chance of causing damage to the skin

4.) A product making your skin tingle isn’t actually a good thing, even though it makes it feel like the product is doing something!! Tingling is irritation to the skin and is still causing damage in the long run, even if it doesn’t look like it’s causing damage. 

5.) Opaque packaging is best!!! Not only are most beneficial ingredients air-sensitive, they’re also light-sensitive and will cause them to degrade and become useless!

6.) When buying a moisturizer, look for beneficial ingredients like ceramides and niacindamides! They help rebuild and repair the skin!

7.) DO NOT USE PRODUCTS WITH LEMON ANYTHING IN THEM ON YOUR FACE!! It will cause damage to your skin and make your skin more sensitive!

Night and Day (Auston Matthews)

hey can you do an imagine where the reader is mitch marners best friend but her and Auston Matthews act like they hate each other when they really love each other? Maybe have them admit that they really love each other after one of them accidently yells it out during a huge fight (maybe the reader is all over one of the other guys on the team and auston is secretly jealous so he starts an arguement?) and then they both realize what’s up and potential make out sesh :)

In the past, you and Mitch had been a package deal. Best friends since long before you had introduced him to Steph, your relationship was closer to brother and sister than it was to two friends. You were always in contact with each other, whether it be a movie night, arcade tournament or just texting. Mitch was your best friend, and nothing would ever break that bond.

Nothing but Auston Matthews.

From the moment that Auston had gotten drafted and Mitch had gotten called up, you had felt your bond with Mitch shifting. Instead of the two of you always hanging out, he only ever texted you now, only hanging out with you if Auston came with. Mitch replaced you with Auston, and it hurt.

You knew that jealousness a petty, childish emotion, yet you still couldn’t help but get jealous at this stranger taking away someone who was basically your brother.

Your feelings towards Auston also aren’t helped by the fact that the two of you are polar opposites. While Auston is quiet, you’re outgoing. Auston is a sports junkie while you prefer the arts. Auston loves hot weather and you’re basically Elsa. The differences between the two of you are like night and day. Steph is convinced that you and Auston are going to get married one day, claiming that opposites attract, but you don’t see it. Instead, you see a person that you could never connect with who stole your best friend, which automatically gives him two strikes.

Although you’re not a straight bitch to Auston, you definitely make sure that he knows that you have no plans on being friends with him. Auston seems to reciprocate your feelings, not ever wanting to be alone with you.

Unfortunately, you’re only human, and a single one at that. So, even though Auston Matthews is a friend stealer who you have nothing in common with, you recognize the fact that Auston is a very attractive man.

Which makes him a lot harder to hate.

I had to share this, my friend Dragonberry/Deebs sends the best gift packages. She even customized this one to look like it was a secret case made by Redeye (who apparently had a thing for the vault dweller in his skin suit and got a signed autograph) after he fleed from a certain albino deathclaw girl and made a survival cache if he should ever need it again (and she drew adorable lil deathclaws on things).

STRESSED OUT

A/N: I hope you don’t mind, but I changed it from Seb to Bucky, mainly because I don’t feel comfortable writing for actual people. Also, this turned-out way longer than I anticipated

Note: Ahhh this was so much fun to write!

You were going through old boxes in your PJ’s when you found it. You’d forgotten what it was until you opened it. The polka-dotted box gave nothing away as to the contents, and when you opened it, you were surprised. There, inside, was your previous life with Jethro Gibbs.

You pulled out a few polaroids and smiled at the memories. The two of you at the beach in California, smiling under the sun’s rays… Him with his arm around you at Thanksgiving dinner at your grandmother’s place… You pressing a kiss to his cheek as he opened your present at Christmas… You sighed. All memories that were old now.

You really should get rid of the box.

You were only going through things to make room for Jason’s boxes to come in the next week or so. After your break-up with Gibbs, you had mended your broken heart for a few years before you met Jason. He was the same age as you, much unlike Jethro. He liked music, poetry, and romance. He treated you right. He told you that you were beautiful and that he believed in you. He brought you coffee to work even though it meant seeing your ex-boyfriend, and he even supported you in that. Jason was the entire package. Best of all? He wanted to marry you. He had proposed, and the wedding was only days away.

It took you such a long time to let go of Jethro. The break-up was hard on you and it caused you to take a few years off from NCIS, for obvious reasons. It was within those years that you entered a coffee shop at the end of your block and found Jason. He was funny and charming. He was adorable and sexy. He was smart and sophisticated. He was… everything you had ever wanted, and you were going to marry him.

On this day in music history: May 31, 1983 - “Speaking In Tongues”, the fifth studio album by Talking Heads is released. Produced by Talking Heads, it is recorded at Blank Tapes Studios, Sigma Sound Studios in New York City and Compass Point Studios in Nassau, The Bahamas from July 1982 - February 1983. Their first album of new studio material since “Remain In Light” three years earlier, the band create their most accessible and commercially successful album. It spins off two singles including their biggest hit “Burning Down The House” (#9 Pop) and “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” (#62 Pop). “Tongues” is also supported by their largest tour to date, which also produces the live concert film and album “Stop Making Sense” in 1984. Pop Artist Robert Rauschenberg wins a Grammy Award (for Best Album Package) for the limited edition LP package which includes a clear vinyl LP (with three additional clear plastic discs with collages printed on each) housed in a clear plastic cover. The original cassette version of the album contains longer versions of the tracks “I Get Wild/Wild Gravity”, “Slippery People”, “Girlfriend Is Better”, “Moon Rocks” and “Making Flippy Floppy” that were edited for time to fit on a single LP. In 2006, a remastered DualDisc CD of the album is issued including the longer versions of the songs from the cassette release, along two additional bonus tracks. The second side of the disc is a DVD-A featuring high resolution stereo and 5.1 surround mixes of the album and the music videos for “Burning Down The House” and “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)”. In 2009, the album is also issued as a limited edition SHM-CD, replicating the Rauschenberg designed packaging in mini-LP form. “Speaking In Tongues” peaks at number fifteen on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

omg my package from @dunkirks finally arrived and everything is so 😍😍😍💕💕💕 i had a mini photoshoot so it took me an hour to get this set up, but thank you so much susan!!!!! you gave me so much and everything is so cute 😭😭 no one gets my love for stationery except for you… i will use/eat hoard everything while thinking of you this is honestly one of the best packages i’ve received in my life??? your previous package was the best but you topped yourself with this one!! 

Rocco...

David Della Rocco was a good fuckin’ man. Too good for the fuckin’ mafia and too good for us. We never should have let him get involved, he wasn’t made for this shit like me and Connor. It was our callin’, not his. We were selfish fucks for lettin’ him help, and it cost him his fuckin’ life. He didn’t deserve to die the way he did, tied to a fuckin’ chair takin’ a bullet to the chest, left to bleed out on the fuckin’ floor.

If you’d have asked me and Conn before we moved to Boston if we’d be best friends with a package boy for the fuckin’ mafia, we probably would have laughed in your face. But Rocco was a good guy, he wasn’t like the other assholes in the mob, he didn’t have a bad bone in his fuckin’ body. He was just caught up in the same shit he had been since high school and he couldn’t get out.

Every day I wonder how different things would have been if we said no, turned him away when he said he wanted to help us. Would he still be alive, down at Docs drinkin’ every fuckin’ day and crackin’ jokes? Or would those assholes have got him anyway? Me and Conn had no doubt they wanted rid of him after the six shooter incident. If me and Connor hadn’t been there he’d have been fuckin’ dead long before he was.

But it wasn’t just the fact he was gone that cut me to my fuckin’ soul, it was the fact he was dead because of us. WE were responsible for his death, me and Connor. We were supposed to be the fuckin’ good guys and yet someone we loved the most lost his life just to help us out. Our best friend ended up as collateral damage and we knew from that moment than anyone else we cared about would suffer the same fuckin’ fate.

We’ll never forget Rocs last words to us, and we won’t ever fuckin’ stop. We’re gonna get every last mother fucker we can get our hands on and we’ll do it for him.

Rest in fuckin’ peace funny man. We fuckin’ miss you.
