damaged tights

binder reminder
  • you are just as beautiful and worthy without
  • at first, it’s good to try to bind only a few hours at a time to let your body get used to it
  • try not to sleep in your binder if you can help it
  • if it hurts, it’s probably too tight
  • it can be tempting to get a size too small, but please don’t!
  • binding damage isn’t just severe discomfort
  • it can permanently damage your body
  • if your binder tends to roll up try either
    sewing fabric to the bottom, to make it longer, so you can tuck it in
  • if your binder presses on your diaphragm and causes discomfort, try cutting a small slit at the bottom of front mid-section
  • ace bandages, tape, and other common forms of binding are discouraged, not for binder companies to earn money, because they can do even more damage than a tight (actual) binder
  • OR layering “sports bras” works too!
  • there are binding bathing suits! (there weren’t when I wanted one)
  • there are tons of blogs, including mine who are open to questions and rants about binding, and the pains & psychological effects it can have on some 
  • you are just as handsome and worthy without

Jings and Other Things: How Combat Informs Character, Cultural Progress, and Vice Versa

Over the series run of The Legend of Korra there have been quite a few posts and thoughts regarding the significant changes that bending had undergone in the seventy years that span the gap between it and The Last Airbender.  Here, reddit, forums, you name it, somebody has pointed it out.  Many of you remember ATLA as having titanic fights with massive feats of bending.  And why shouldn’t you?

You’ll Be Fine

When you and your parents arrived at platform nine and three quarters, you couldn’t help but let out a shaky breath. It wasn’t like you weren’t used to any of the magic that was happening around you, because you were.

You came from a proud family of Ravenclaw’s, both your parents had been head girl and head boy back in their day, and you couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed at the high expectations they had of you. It’s not to say that you weren’t clever, because you certainly were- however it was sometimes difficult to show how clever you were different was your middle name.

As you traveled in the Hogwarts Express, you sat down with a few other first years who tried to talk to you, but after stuttering one too many times, they stopped asking you questions, making you blush with frustration. Even when your name was called out for the Sorting Hat, you couldn’t help but gulp and fiddle with your fingers nervously.

When the Sorting Hat yelled, “Ravenclaw!” and the table cheered, you heard a few students say, “no wonder (y/n) is in Ravenclaw” - and “probably thinks too smart to talk to us regular blokes.”

As far as you knew, your first year was starting off terribly, and the mere fact that you had to be there for six more years sickened you to your core.

It wasn’t until your second week there that things started to change. You met a lovely girl called Madeleine and she was quite probably the nicest Ravenclaw you had ever met. Sure she had her instances where she would get overly competitive, but you cherished her nonetheless- after all, it wasn’t like you had many friends to choose from.

As much as you loved Madeleine, there was a few differences between the two of you. While you were a raging introvert, she was a raging extrovert- a social butterfly if you will. Even as a first year, Madeleine was talking and hanging with second and third year students, often leaving you alone.

You didn’t mind obviously, but it still hurt sometimes when you would make plans with her, and suddenly things would change because, “there’s a sick party happening in the Gryffindor common room (y/n), we have to go!”

Normally whenever she would ask you to accompany her, you’d shake your head politely and say, “I’m sorry Madeline, you know I’d rather not- parties and me don’t really mix well.” and Madeline would sigh and tell you. “(y/n), you have to stand up for yourself and not just spend time in the library! There’s nothing but books there!”

You assumed it was because Madeline was a major social butterfly, but the reality was that books really were your preferred way to spend a day. You adored the way a book could take you to places you had never been to and enjoyed the feeling of learning. Perhaps it was a Ravenclaw thing- but you swore that learning about new things was never a bad idea.

The library, as big as it was, always felt more like home to you than your own home, and it wasn’t until Madeline and you got into a huge fight, that made you realize that.

Even now you could still remember that day like it was yesterday.

Madeline’s words haunted you even as you were reading about Hippogriffs, a subject you deeply enjoyed. “I only became your friend because you don’t have anyone else- maybe if you stopped being such a freak you might actually pull off normal.”

Tears threatened to spill onto the book pages as you angrily gripped the cover in your hands. It wasn’t your fault that you were so different, you were just shy that’s all. ‘Madeline doesn’t know what’s she’s talking about,’ you thought sadly, but it wasn’t until you processed those words that you realized that you had just lost your only friend.

It wasn’t until moments later that a voice broke your upsetting thoughts. “You know, gripping a book that tight could damage the cover.”

“Tell it to someone who cares.” you snapped, but as soon as the words came out of your mouth, you regretted them instantly. “I’m sorry,” you apologized softly, your cheeks pink. “I didn’t mean to snap- it’s just been a tough day.”

When you looked up, you were surprised to see a boy with warm hazel eyes, a mop of honey colored hair, and bright pink cheeks. “I-it’s alright.” he said softly, “I didn’t realize you were upset.”

“No,” you sighed, “I shouldn’t have been so rude, I’m normally not like this, I’m- quite shy, but it’s just been an off day.”

“I understand,” said the hazel eyed boy, “Is there anything I can help you with?” he asked softly as he sat down opposite of you, but you shook your head. 

“Unless you can get me plenty of new friends and lower my parent’s expectations of me, there isn’t much you can do.”

The Hazel eyed boy chuckled once before clearing his throat, “I- i can’t get you many friends, but I can give you one.” he continued as he smiled softly, “I’m Newt.”

You eyed Newt curiously, not sure whether he was joking or not. He was staring at you with kindness in his eyes as he held out his hand, and slowly but surely, you brought yours up to meet his. “(y/n).” you replied, a smile threatening to break from your lips.


From that point on your friendship with Newt grew immensely. Sure you were still considered the “oddball” of the school, and every so often Madeline would give you a nasty look, but because of Newt, you had a new perspective on life.

Once, during Christmas vacation, you had permission from yours and Newt’s parents to spend a week with Newt. He kept telling you as soon as you arrived that he had the most amazing surprise for you. “Honestly, I do!” he would keep on saying with a full grin and dancing eyes. “I know it might be a bit on the sappy side, but I promise you- you’re going to love it!”

You knew that Newt’s Mother cared for and bred Hippogriffs, but never in your wildest dreams did you imagine that you would have the opportunity to care for one yourself.

 You couldn’t help but envelop Newt in the tightest hug possible, causing him to gasp slightly. “You’re the most amazing, amazing, person in this entire world!” you said, while he laughed.

“Well, the most amazing, amazing person in the world, can’t breathe.” Newt mocked, causing you to release him, your cheeks tinted pink.

“Sorry,” you apologized, but then furrowed your eyebrows, “why did you say that this surprise was sappy?”

“Oh,” replied Newt sheepishly as he stared at his feet for a moment. “Do you remember when I first met you in the library?”

“Of course,” you smiled, “I met my best friend there.”

“Right,” replied a grinning Newt, “well, I don’t know if you remember, but you had a book about Hippogriffs, and you mentioned to me that you loved them. So I figured why not let you take care of one.”

It was at that point in time that you realized that although you didn’t have many friends in Hogwarts, you were completely fine with it, because as long as you had those people that mattered most to you, you were fine.

“Thank you for everything, Newt.” 

“I told you you’d be fine.”

Doesn't frizzy hair encompass allot of "unruly" hair types? Natural black people's hair is considered frizzy, but so is hair that's damaged, hair with naturally tight curls (like Merida?), hair that's just "wild", etc? I mean the first search results for frizzy hair, is literally a bunch of women with "straw" hair. It's just a very wild hair look, and reminds me allot of how a person with long hair looks if they haven't brushed their hair in a while.

It’s

almost

like

anyone

can

have

frizzy

hair

that encompasses a wide variety of hair types and behaviours.

It’s literally just a descriptive word for hair that different people use to mean different things. Some people complain that it’s “frizzy” if they’ve brushed their hair and there’s static that won’t let it sit like it’s from a glossy magazine. Some use it to mean that it’s wild and bushy and their hairbrush does nothing but cause them pain. Some others use it to mean that unless they spend a lot of time on their hair and use product, it’ll be curly and do what it wants. Others use it to mean natural black people’s hair. 

It’s so ridiculous to get all worked up over one description for hair that means different things to different people. It’s hair. It’s a word. People need to calm down.

Two Roads Meet - Chapter 10

A/N: I’m sorry this is kinda late it’s been a long day but I hope u like it thanks

ALSO it would kinda be helpful to have this song open in a tab somewhere when it comes to the part where Phil sings (oops spoiler) because it’ll make it seem more real and better idk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btHINuDXSS4

Summary: Phil Lester, a shy, poetic hipster, is talented at a lot of things; social interaction not being one of them. But when his best friend Tom, a popular socialite, wins a competition for a Road Trip, Phil suddenly finds himself meeting a whole new group of friends, including the total stud Dan Howell; a flirt-machine in a leather jacket. But will Phil’s awkwardly interesting personality intrigue Dan, or completely freak him out?

“You two took your time.” Esmée rolled her eyes.
“We’ve been gone 5 minutes!” Tom contradicted, quickly wiping any tear residue away, although before coming back onto the campsite we gave each other a quick once-over to make sure we didn’t look like we’d been crying.
“5 minutes too long. It’s chaos here.” She gestured to the quietness surrounding us the only disturbance being the gently swaying of the trees dancing with the evening breeze.
Tom scoffed. “Yeah, it looks absolutely manic.”
“Not here. Round the corner where all the tent action is. As if putting up a few tents and getting some wood together can’t be done without some kind of conflict.”
“Not when Amelia’s around.”
She chuckled. “Better go check no-one’s died of lipstick poisoning yet.”
We turned the corner, walking down a small path until we’d reached what appeared to be our new campsite for the evening. The tents were already pitched up, and as I studied further I thanked whatever deity for sharing another tent with Tom, Esmée and Dan, with no sign of Amelia.
There was sign of her, of course- as if she wasn’t noticeable enough already, but she’d moodily assumed the position on one of the logs after being placed in a tent more than 2 centimetres away from wherever Dan was.

Hey not sure if you encounter this issue but every time I do protective style, any kind really, when I take it out my natural becomes kind of dull, easily tangles, and the worst hair lost. I fear combing my hair after taking them out. Any tips?

well just remember you not really managing your hair while is in a protective state, so that is to be expected. There are ways to moisturize and manage while in that state particularly braids and twists. So deep conditioning right after you take your hair down is crucial. You might as well make that a hair day. Cause you will need to baby your hair for the rest of the day after the take down.

And also remember while in protective style your hair is shedding the whole time, its just not coming out because it is being held in the protective style, so when u first detangle its gonna be depressing and stressful, lol, believe me i have experienced this.

Now when u detangle and your continuing to see hair loss days afterward, then there might be some damage….specifically from tight styles.
