Happy birthday, Virgo! The Sun moves into your own corner of the cosmos on Monday, and it will remain there for the next four weeks. No matter when your actual birthday occurs, the whole month is a very special time — you’re shining brightly now and you should take center stage as often as possible. The next week is really important for getting ahead, because Mercury will go retrograde in your sign starting on the 30th, suggesting something of a slowdown. And with a Solar Eclipse shakeup next week, it’s wise to get your ducks in a row while the stars are calm and inspiring. So organize your heart out, but don’t agonize.

It’s the quiet before the storm, and for the sake of this particular metaphor — the storm is ur birthday. Aim to get as much quiet time & beauty sleep as possible early this month, especially near the New Moon on the 2nd. Meditation, yoga classes, writing in ur journal & focusing on the simple and streamlined: these are the things that hit ur sweet spot now. If you’ve had trouble sticking to a mindfulness practice this year, use this New Moon to reset and start anew. It’s also an amazing time to set goals for the next six months, particularly for wellness and peace of mind. Two weeks later a partial Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon wakes u up in the most powerful way possible. This cosmic event is exactly on the 18th, but as a super sensitive Virgo, u are likely to feel it before other people do, so be good to yourself. A little bit of advance TLC will get u through it unscathed. This Full Moon could bring up deep fears and old psychological baggage. It’s best dealt with by employing the skill set u started building earlier in the month —meditate, practice yoga, drink green juice, eat healthy and move your body. This is just what u need because, baby, it’s almost ur birthday! The last ten days of August are Virgo Time and life is super sweet.

Yearly Overview
2016 is the year you’ve been waiting for, Virgo. The stars are about to deliver ur dreams on so many levels. You’ve had Jupiter on ur side since mid-2015, and this amazing, auspicious, ego-boosting vibe will continue through September. (Cont. On my FB) #virgo #horoscope #septemberbaby

Donut Bun 2 Ways | Ducks In A Row

If you’re like me, then it’s necessary to pull your hair back when you’re working. I can’t stand my hair being in my face - it distracts me and I can’t do anything until I’ve pulled it up! But then you fall into the old same ‘do day in day out. Well here’s a great tutorial on how to do a gorgeous bun that will take you from day to night. For work, try the 'regal’ bun, then before you leave for drinks/dates/fun, take it out, tease it up and re-pin for a 'I didn’t try too hard but still look fab’ look!

I'm a Chronic Goodie-Two-Shoes

And I tie both laces neatly in bows. My nails are not often polished, but when they are, it’s two layers and a top coat. Shoulders back, chin up, even when seated. I take black teas with honey and cream.

Did I forget to mention that my shoes are steel-toe Harley Davidson’s?
Ducks in a Row Chapter 6, an once upon a time fanfic | FanFiction

After Regina had finished putting Henry to bed she made her way downstairs. Emma was sitting cross legged on the couch with her backpack in front of her. The blonde was pulling several miscellaneous objects from the bag, when she paused. Slowly she pulled a white envelope out. Regina recognized the object immediately. Emma opened the envelope and pulled two fifty dollar bills out and stared down at them.

“Those were meant to be used.” Regina said making her presence known to the blonde.

Emma jumped and quickly put the money back in the envelope. Looking up at Regina with wide eyes; similar to Henry’s when he is caught doing something he should not have.

“Why didn’t you use it?” Regina asked sternly moving over to the couch.

“I don’t know.” Emma admitted looking down. “I guess I felt guilty about it.”
