PSA: USPS INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

IM SO HEATED GUYS

I ship everything (charms, buttons, pins) in a 5″x7″ bubble mailer and it typically weighs 0.5 oz (always less than 1 oz), but it’s always more than 1/4″ in thickness so they have to ship it as a parcel which costs $13.50 USD. THAT’S A LOT, BUT THEY SAID THAT WAS THE CHEAPEST OPTION since its too bulky to send any cheaper. SO, this whole time I’ve been like I’m so sorry international friends, I have no choice but to charge you this much, so beware! (I charged $14 for shipping bc I’m not tryna rip you guys off)

AND TODAY THIS USPS ANGEL (probably worked there for a long time) TOLD ME THAT IF I JUST USE A BIGGER ENVELOPE and evenly distribute the items to fake a uniform flat look, IT WOULD ONLY COST $5.

SO I just wanted to make this post to help any of you that were having to charge your international orders a butt ton and of course someone selling small items wouldn’t think to get huge envelopes to ship things in (like me lmao)

USPS large envelope specifications:
greater than 6.5″ x 11.5″
less than 12″ x 15″
3/4″ thick and uniformly distributed items (can’t be lumpy)

For example:

You can take a piece of cardboard, evenly distribute your buttons or charms, then put one layer of bubble wrap on top of it and put it in an envelope. Just make sure it doesn’t exceed the 3/4″ and be sure you’re faking that flat look!

Also, to my international customers, I am so so sorry that I’ve had to charge you so much and I apologize for not doing my research more thoroughly. I have temporarily changed my shipping costs and will properly adjust them when I’ve gotten a hold of the right shipping materials!!

ok but u know that drink is trash cause it can only cost like $5 TOPS im not wasting my birthday drink unless the barista considers quitting upon seeing my $7 or more order pop up

worst poop I ever had? not too terrible in itself, but the context was what made it the worst: a bathroom at the top of the largest pyramid in the world. cost 5 pesos, they gave me 5 squares of toilet paper, there was no toilet seat and you flushed by filling a bucket with a hose and dumping it in there

Cladding for Grenfell Tower was cheaper, more flammable option
Exclusive: Omnis Exteriors asked to supply cladding that was £2 cheaper per square metre than fire-resistant version, investigation finds
By Ian Sample

The fireproofed version would have cost an extra £5,000. For the want of £5,000 at least 30 are dead and 70 missing. £50 for a working class life. 

2 Very Easy DIY Binders

1: The classic tights/leggings binder

2: Deconstructed sports bra

You may have seen people recommending layering up sports bras to bind your chest, however this gets lumpy, heavy and very uncomfortable after a while. Here is how to make the more user-friendly alternative.

1: Get yourself a padded sports bra. These usually cost around £5 from a supermarket. 

They look something like this:

2: Turn it inside out

3: On the inside of the ‘cup’, cut a small hole in the places marked red. The holes do not need to be any bigger than the top of your thumb.

4: Inside each cup is a triangle of padding which looks like this

Very carefully remove the padding through the holes you have made

This step is easier than it looks - I promise

5: you can sew up the holes afterwards if you want to, but it’s not necessary

6: Wear your binder back-to-front for the best results!

you can’t act like your healthy recipes are cheap when you omit the initial cost of everything, if your bag of tomatoes costs $5 and you only use half a tomato in your recipe you can’t pretend that its cost is like 25 cents. Normal people can’t just go and buy half a tomato for the same price as your fragmented cost, it’s not realistic. 

You’re purposely misleading people because you know the cost of everything together would reach up into the hundreds. And vegetables go bad if someone doesn’t have the time to cook them, and eat them. so not everyone can go buy these bags of vegetables in bulk “because it’s cheaper” and expect them to last, your fragmented partial costs don’t mean shit.

Sex during your period

If you have an appointment with a client or a SD, or just feel like having sex, the triangle sponges can be your life savers!!!

I am leaving to my country for 2 months and I was seeing my bf for the last time today (I cried😭) and it was my first day of period soo very heavy. I drank 2 teaspoons of coconut oil mixed with tea and took 2 Ibuprofene to regulate my blood flow at least. And then I used the triangle sponges.

So here’s how it works :
- you buy triangle cosmetic sponges at the drug store they cost like 3.5$
- you get it wet and then you boil it to sanitize it
- run it under non boiling water after
- stick it up to your vagina, aaaall the way up

If you want to remove it, push out like you are pooping. Its better to wait a little after sex to do it so that your vagina has its original size

AND IT WORKED. HE DID NOT FEEL ANYTHING AT ALL AND I HAD AMAZING BLOODLESS AND MESS FREE SEX 😍

Les Mis Professor Enjolras AU

So a little while ago I came up with the idea of Enjolras being an English Professor and being one of those professors that are really passionate about what they teach, but also one of those professors that has a significant other that their class is familiar with (when I was in middle school one of the teacher’s husband use to come in and bring her something she needed every few weeks and he always wore glasses and a hat when dropping stuff off so everyone would joke that he was her “boyfriend” because of how the outfit made him look so different). This is the first part of a long long series of headcanons so just you wait. Here are the first few!

•Enjolras begins teaching college students and is one of those intensely passionate professor but is also the youngest professor.

  • He teaches English and is always trying to inspire his students to stand up for what they believe in.
  • Enjolras has all his students call him “Mr. E” or something of the sort, because being called by his last name with the prefixes “Mr” and “Professor” made him uncomfortable and reminded him of his father.
  • He’s also got quick responses to the kids who backtalk cause his boyfriend has given him plenty of practice

•His students end up meeting Grantaire early on because R constantly stops in to bring his boyfriend coffee and stuff and then makes jokes to the classes and E doesn’t approve

  • It gets to the point where every time Grantaire enters the room, the members of whatever class E is teaching stand up with finger guns and go “AYYYYYYY”. Enjolras is not a fan of this practice.

•At Halloween E and R dress in matching costumes but E’s students don’t understand the costume at all until R comes in with one of those pumpkin lattes for his bf (because Enjolras is a basic white girl) and everyone is like “ohhhh” (Idk what the costumes would be but I thought it was a cute idea so send me ideas in my inbox)

•At like the end of November Enjolras mentions at the end of his class that Grantaire is gonna have his work in an art gallery for a week and he wanted E to find out if any of the students wanted to go to the opening night

  • Almost everyone shows up and they all giggle because almost all of the art is of Enjolras (obviously)
  • Enjolras smacks Grantaire’s arm (playfully) and is like “why did you only put up the ones of me you jerk, you have plenty of paintings of landscapes” and R is like “cause my paintings of you are my best work” and all the students go “awwww" E is just like “omg I hate you so much you’re such a cruel boyfriend”

•At the end of the semester E makes cookies for everyone and gives the students that aren’t taking classes with him the next semester little poems and they have a little class party

•At the start of the new semester R gets a habit of showing up at the end of E’s morning classes with a coffee for him and a sandwich bag at lunchtime on the days he doesn’t have to work himself

  • The newer students really enjoy the idea of a cute little artist guy popping in at the end of classes to bring his boyfriend a coffee because they’re adorable

•Valentine’s Day involves an elaborate scheme

  • Grantaire gets a bunch of paper hearts and writes down every memory related to Enjolras like “going to the first Les Amis meeting and practically dying” “whining to Courf about feelings” “painting you for the first time” “getting drunk with Éponine because pining” “taking you on the tour of favorite sites for our first date” “kissing in front of the Louvre” “Courf and Ferre’s wedding” “Trip to America” “Start of your new job”
  • The students in Enjolras’s first morning class put them up all around the room and pester Grantaire like crazy because it’s cute
  • Grantaire also gets those students to all sit at their desks and hold up letters that spell out “I love you, Enjolras”
  • R also stands in the back of the room with a rose in hiding
  • Enjolras walks into his classroom that morning and almost bursts into tears
  • R steps down with the rose and gives his boyfriend a kiss and everyone applauds because they’re adorable

•In March, Grantaire gets a letter in the mail and instantly runs to Enjolras once he reads it

  • Unfortunately Enjolras is teaching a class and R doesn’t want to interrupt his bf so he just bounces up and down outside the door waiting for the class to finish up
  • After a while a student raises his hand and goes to Enjolras “Hey Mr.E? Grantaire has been bouncing up and down outside the classroom door for like the last 10 minutes, I think he needs to talk to you”
  • Enjolras goes out of the room to his excited boyfriend and is shown a letter, reading that Grantaire got into a serious artist program that takes place in July and could be a big boost for him
  • E and R celebrate almost all night with Courf and Ferre and E definitely regrets it the next morning when he’s teaching an 8 am class with a hangover (He promises himself that he will never do that ever again)

•In April, Enjolras and his class study the Hunchback of Notre Dame (1. Because Victor Hugo and 2. Because Enjolras would love that book tbh) and so the class goes on a field trip to Notre Dame (since it’s only about a 20 minute walk from the school)

  • Grantaire goes with them because he knows Paris better than anyone and he’s spent lots of time at Notre Dame for inspiration
  • The kids are convinced it’s because Enjolras just wants an excuse to hang out with his boyfriend
  • Grantaire thinks it is too but doesn’t mention it
  • Enjolras wanted to see his boyfriend but also loves the fact that his boyfriend knew so much and loves watching him when he goes on about the stuff so he hopes his students enjoy it

•In May, before the end of the semester the college throws a big party/fair for all the students and also to raise funds for classes

  • R sets up a little station where he draws portraits of students while E sets up a table with buttons and pins you can buy
  • A couple students come up to them and ask them to tell the story of how they met. After 7 times, Enjolras puts out a sign saying their Love Story costs 5 bucks to listen to it

•While packing up his classroom some students stick around and chat with Enjolras

  • The students get all nosy and ask about E’s summer plans
  • “Since Grantaire got accepted to his program and will be gone for most of July, we’re planning on doing a lot of fun things together in June, also because it’s a big month for us because of our anniversary and my birthday”

•Once all the students leave Enjolras finishes his packing and waits for his boyfriend to come pick him up

  • Enjolras and Grantaire take the boxes out to the car and E ends up wrapping his arms around his boyfriend who says to him “I’m so glad you took this job, you’ve been really happy since”

EDIT: Originally I used Enjolras more as a first name than last name. I’ve since changed that after finding a first name that fits him well so “Enjolras has all his students call him […] ‘Professor Enjolras’ […] because being called by his last name made him uncomfortable” has been changed to fit the storyline better.

I moved into a new apartment last weekend, and it doesn’t quite feel like home yet. It’s just  this big, empty, blank place that I’m still growing accustomed to. I felt inspired to make a wall decoration that I could also imbue with magic for protection, comfort, positivity, and new beginnings. Knot magic felt like the way to go, and this macrame wall hanging was the result. 

As I knotted the first row, I chanted: “My home protects me.”

As I knotted the second row, I chanted: “I am comfortable here.”

As I knotted the third row, I chanted: “My home is filled with positivity.”

As I knotted the fourth row, I chanted: “This is my new beginning.”

For the final row, I chanted: “This home will be my safe haven.” 

It’s a fairly simple design, so it only took about 45 minutes and cost less than $5 in materials. I placed the finished product above my bed, and had the best night of sleep since I moved in! What do you think?

Lesbian and Asexual Cross-Stitch Flag Pins from Motley Merchants Guild Etsy

I first purchased the ace flag pin from Sam in December, and the lesbian flag was a recent custom commission, which took no time at all.

They are individually hand stitched, and are roughly 1.5" x 1". The stitches are tightly woven and neatly done, the colours are true to the flags and pop so nicely against my denim jacket.

Various flags such as the trans flag will be up soon in the shop, or you can request a custom commission. They cost only $5, and you can use code SHERRYBOMBED for 20% off flags and all other items from Motley Merchants.
