there’s a lot of shit on here about lighting candles and waking up early to see the sunset and if we are being hella honest, no one actually does that. u probably don’t own candles or if u do there in a closet and the only time you wake up early all year round is never. so here’s a guide to actual human beings.
-wake up when you need to. don’t wake up at 5 to “journal” and “meditate.” sleep is more important. if you have a class at 9, wake up at 8. it’s simple.
- eat something. it doesn’t have to be avocado toast. just have a bagel or a bowl of cocoa puffs.
- have ur meds if u take any
- attempt to look nice. at least brush your hair and your teeth. but honestly no one cares how u dress. if you wanna dress like a stripper, then dress like a goddamn stripper. honestly no one cares. (but if ur in hs try to follow the dress code a little bit?)
- wear makeup if u want, or if you don’t then don’t.
- ur probably not gonna exercise or stretch. who cares. i dont. your friends don’t. if ur feeling up to it then go jog 4 miles, but if ur not then don’t.
- actually try to have a plan of what ur doing for that day. attend ur classes, and do ur work. ur education is hella important. FUCKING DO IT. kill those grades, murder everyone else in that class, impress and surprise ur teacher, parents, and everyone else who thought u couldn’t do it
- attempt to be social. make plans with friends and try to go. it can be lowkey and only like an hr. eat pizza or go to a bar. just have fun.
- eat healthy. eat a hamburger when u really want a hamburger and eat a large pizza when u really want a large pizza but try ur hardest to eat healthyish.
- watch ya shows. who doesn’t love some amazing netflix binges? watch it. do it.
- actually read. books are honestly the best. at least try to pick up the first harry potter.
- go to sleep before 2AM!!!!!!¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ sleep is hella important.
- shower. you don’t need to buy expensive bath bombs or candles and have a fancy bath and coat ur skin in so much lotion that you are a walking wet rag, but try to smell somewhat pleasant.
- do what u want. just make sure it’s legal. have sex, travel, learn how to code, be with ur family, have a family, marry someone nice, build an empire, be fierce, be strong, but most of all: be happy. you live once on this planet. live it to the fullest. and don’t let ANYONE bring you down. not a girl, not a guy, not a parent, or a so called friend. keep your standards high, and heels higher.
Questions to Ask When: Developing Character Appearance
Hey everyone, Abby here! Today I’m coming at you with something a little different from the usual “advice on a certain topic”; this is something that has a lot to do with development instead. So what I’m going to do is think of as many questions as I can about character appearances and list them all here; hopefully it helps!
What color are their eyes?
Do they have heterochromia or anything like it?
How tall are they?
How much do they weigh?
Are the answers to the previous two questions about the same as the average where your character lives?
What are your character’s three most prominent features?
Which of their features are they the most proud of?
Which of them are they most insecure about?
What color is their hair?
What is their favorite hairstyle? Do they wear it like this daily?
How much do they actually care about their hair?
Do they enjoy changing the style and color often, or will they wear it the same way their whole lives given the chance?
What race (or races) is your character?
Do they have any tattoos or scars?
How easily do they emote?
Do they have a generally emotional face?
Which emotion do they most easily show?
Do they enjoy wearing makeup? If yes, do they prefer a more subtle or bold look?
Do they enjoy wearing jewelry? If yes, what sort do they prefer (necklace, bracelet, ring, etc.)?
How often do they wear makeup or jewelry?
Does you character ever wear merchandise for things they like?
Are they more likely to be found in a long- or short-sleeved shirt?
If your character had the opportunity, would they choose ripped or regular jeans?
Do they wear hats often? If yes, which one do they wear the most?
Take a look at their wardrobe. Which color is most prominently featured?
Still looking at their wardrobe, how would you describe the color scheme: monochromatic, gray-ish, pastels, earth tones, bright colors, or all over the place?
What is their favorite article of clothing to wear? Do they wear it more for look or for feel?
When choosing their clothes, does your character base their decision on look, feel, or both?
What constitutes as pajamas for them? Does it have to be strictly things meant to be pajamas or just anything comfortable enough to sleep in?
Your character has nothing to do today; they’re staying at home and nobody super important is going to see them. How are they dressed?
So, I think this should be enough to help you get started on developing your character’s appearance; I hope this helped! If you or anyone else wants to see me cover another topic in my next post, please don’t hesitate to leave a message in my ask. Until next time, much love! <333
it’s good to know Discovery’s directors and I have the same priorities in life, like always learning, making the world a kinder place and Michelle Yeoh breathlessly looking at the camera with messy hair
Brush with a wide-toothed comb and tie it up with soft ties that don’t snag
Brush your hair from the ends up
If you hear a ‘tearing’ sound, that’s your hair breaking, so try to avoid it
Hair is most fragile when wet
Avoid bleach and perms
Avoid heat-styling, and use the hair dryer on low/cool or not at all
Gently rubbing your scalp can stimulate hair growth
Putting too much tension with tight ponytails or braids can cause alopecia (hair loss)
Vitamin B, vitamin C, biotin (vitamin B7/vitamin H), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin E and keratin have all been reported to improve hair and nails. The most important thing however is to eat a wide variety of foods.
Regular trims can prevent split ends and lead to healthier, longer hair long term
Wearing hair in loose plaits, wrapped in a scarf, or wearing a hat can protect hair from the elements
Leaving conditioner on the hair for longer than an hour has no proven benefit and can actually cause damage to the hair and irritate the scalp
Hair needs both moisture and protein. Eggs whisked together can be used as a protein treatment, and coconut oil can be used as a conditioning treatment. There are many more inexpensive DIY treatments to be found online
The rate of hair growth is tied to metabolism; the faster your metabolism, the faster your hair will grow. Exercise can help.
The most important thing needed to grow long hair is patience
Wash your hands before cleaning your face or you’re just rubbing germs all over your face
Wear a head band while washing your face to avoid getting chemicals in your hair
Cleanse your face (make sure you cleanser is the right one for your skin eg. oily skin, dry skin, combination skin, normal skin)
Apply toner (if your cleanser is PH balanced you do not need a toner and if you do need toner use an alcohol free toner)
Apply rose hip oil, this stuff is honestly a god send, I had such red, uneven skin my whole life and I just accepted that’s how my skin was but after using this my skin is completely even and never looked better!!
Apply eye cream to soften and smooth any smile lines
Moisturiser (once again find one that’s right for your face, my skin kept breaking out so I went to the doctor and he told me it was because my moisturiser was too thick for my skin type, if you have oily skin use a light moisturiser)
Apply daily face sunscreen (slows down aging so you can be looking 20 when you’re 35 😉)
Pluck eyebrows, only if you want to and know how, don’t go giving yourself thin ass eyebrows cause they won’t grow back
Lip balm, preferably a more natural one like paw paw cream
Try to avoid wearing makeup but if you do always use a primer before hand and take your makeup off with micellar water instead of makeup wipes as they dry out the skin
Clean your pillow cases!!!
Look at the ingredients in your shampoo and conditioner, my hair used to have so much breakage and it turns out it was because I had sulfate in my shampoo and conditioner which dries out your hair, go for shampoo and conditioner which has more natural ingredients
Only wash your hair 2-3 times as it takes the natural oils that your hair needs away, if you’re used to washing your hair every day and it goes greasy if you don’t purchase a dry shampoo while you train your hair
Only apply shampoo to the scalp and massage it for about 40 seconds
Apply conditioner from the roots up, avoiding the scalp and keep it in your hair for as long as you can, I like to shave while my conditioner is still in just to leave it there a little longer
Avoid towel drying your hair as your hair breaks easy when it’s wet
Do not comb your hair while it is wet
Apply a leave in conditioner after the shower to moisturise the ends of your hair
Avoid using straighteners, hair dryers and curling irons but if you do use them make sure to use a heat protective spray
Put coconut oil in your hair and put it up in a bun and leave it over night once a week to restore your hairs natural oils
When brushing your hair brush the ends first and slowly make your way up to avoid breakage
Avoid tight hair do’s as your hair will break where the hair tie is, if possible avoid tying your hair up
Brush and floss your teeth twice a day, you might not want to but once you get in to the routine it will do miracles for your dental health
Make sure you brush your tongue as that is where most of the germs that create bad breath are
Use a mouth wash twice a day
Add baking soda to your toothpaste once a week for whiter teeth
okay, so in the very early stages of the original beauty and
the beast, gaston was an aristocrat. that eventually got scrapped, but oh what if it didn’t
so say gaston is the son of someone very high up in the
royalty chain, someone who’s parents are important enough that he spends an
awful lot of time at the castle? and our prince adam isn’t really down with
this whole ~being a prince~ thing, he’s a brat, like so many other kids are
brats (but these kids don’t get turned into beasts by random witches, like i’m
sorry but i’ll never not think that beast didn’t get the short end of the stick
there) and so he spends the least about of time possible parading about with a
crown on his head. he likes going outside, like riding his horses and playing
in the woods, and all sorts of other things that make his parents shake their
heads and despair at the inability to have another child, because their son is a small disaster.
and here comes gaston, who’s older and more long suffering.
gaston in naturally dramatic, okay, he likes being flashy and fun and loud, all
the things the son of a noble shouldn’t be. so by the point he meets adam he’s
listened to his parents, folded himself up nice and tight into this quiet boy
who just doesn’t want any trouble. adam loves
trouble. if he can’t find it, he invents it.
so he grabs onto gaston like glue, and gaston is irritated,
but he’s the prince, he can’t say
anything or his parents will kill him. so he lets adam keep dragging him out
horseback riding and hunting and rock climbing and all sorts of things little
noble boys aren’t supposed to do. they spare, and no matter that gaston is
bigger and older he never wins, adam always ends up pinning him to the ground
with his arm to his throat and he’d more irritated about it if the prince didn’t
look so delighted every time he won. adam loves all the animals that he’s not
interested in eating, and gaston tries to point out that it’s a little weird
how thrilled adam is to take down a deer when two minute later he’s trying to
entice a wolf to come closer so he can pet it, and also holy shit adam that’s a wolf what’s wrong with you
adam loves his staff, the people who do their best to reign
in this little terror but don’t try that hard, because the thing about bratty
kids is that they’re rarely brats all the time, as an adult you swing between
wanting to strangle them and finding them so adorable and charming your chest
hurts. so mrs. potts indulges him, likes the way he’s only ever really patient
while he’s playing with her son chip when he’s snuck into the kitchen to beg
her for some extra cookies. lumiere and cogsworth are his tutors and spend more
time arguing with each other than teaching him, and he’s delighted by that.
and so adam is this loud, exuberant little prince who slowly
but surely picks at gaston’s barrier until gaston almost feels like himself again,
and adam doesn’t do what his parents did. adam doesn’t make fun of him for how
much he cares about his hair, about how he hates dirt under his fingernails. as
long as gaston keeps following him into dangerous situations, adam doesn’t care
about much of anything, and gaston loves him for it.
and gaston’s on the cusp of teenagerhood when he realizes he loves adam, the prince, this is awful
and he immediately has a panic attack over it, he’s to be lord and adam is to
be king, it will never work, oh, and adam probably doesn’t like boys, and – oh my
god, all those schoolyard taunts about him being gay we’re right this is a nightmare.
he’d freak out about this properly and probably go charging
to the castle to confess his love in true embarrassing 12 year old fashion –
except his parents set him down, pale, and say, “they’re gone, they’re all
gone, the king and queen were found dead and the prince is gone and now a
monster lives in the castle.” and of course gaston takes this to the most
logical conclusion – a beast broke into the castle, killed the love of his
young life, and now he’s claimed the castle for his own.
this is gaston’s defining moment okay, this is the point
where he snaps and never goes back.
he rebels against his parents, refuses to fit himself back into the mold of the
perfect son, tries to live his life like adam would have wanted him to. that
means being exactly who he is and damn the consequences. he focuses on his hair
and his clothes and his looks, he pursues hunting because it reminds him of
adam, because so much of their friendship took place in the woods, covered in
mud and laughing. he pursues hunting because, one day, when he’s the very best
he’s going to go the castle and kill the beast that killed adam. and his
parents are furious about all of this and they disown him in favor of his young
siblings and he just. doesn’t give a shit.
so he moves to the town, and everyone loves him, of course
they love him. he’s loud and arrogant, but – he’s not cruel. he’s beautiful and brings in more pelts and meat than any
other hunter and gaston doesn’t miss the days of being a young lordling in the
slightest. but girls keep throwing themselves at him and he doesn’t know how to
keep refusing either outing himself or hurting their feelings, so he goes to
belle. belle, who is every inch as pretty he is. belle, who is smart and quiet
and kind in a reserved sort of way. if there’s anyone who won’t judge him, it’s
so he goes to her, and tells her the truth – that he only
likes men, that he’s not interested in advertising the fact, and asks her to
pretend to be his lady. and belle, kind sweet belle, agrees. she does it out of
sense of duty to help those in need, because nothing she knows of gaston says
she will enjoy this. but she’s proven wrong, because gaston was raised to be a lord of course he’s educated, just
because he doesn’t really care about any of that stuff doesn’t mean he doesn’t
know it. and belle can speak with him like she can no other, because gaston has
more formal education than anyone else in this village. and to their surprise,
gaston and belle become friends, become the closest of friends, and gaston hasn’t
known this closeness since adam, although it’s different because he loves belle
but he’s not in love with belle.
and one day belle and her father are out traveling and
sudden snowstorm forces them into the castle. belle knows there’s some sort of
monster that supposedly lives there, but it’s either the castle for refuge or
dying of cold outside, so into the castle they go. and instead of a hideous
monster there’s adam, the beast. he’s rude and gruff and calls them twelve
kinds of idiots for getting caught in a snowstorm in the first place. he offers
them a room before sulking back into his study, watching the last petal
threaten to the fall from the rose.
the castle is so excited to have guests, to have a young
girl that may be their saving grace, and beast doesn’t know how to tell them
that he likes girls well enough, but the only person he’s ever loved is a
prickly, stuffy little boy who used to wring his hands together whenever they
went looking for wolves. the storm doesn’t abate, and belle and her father
stay. beast likes belle, likes how much she loves his library and the courteous
way she speaks to all his staff even tho they’re all furniture, and he wishes
he could love her, she is a woman that deserves to be loved. but he can’t.
back in the village, gaston has had it. the beast took adam from him, and he wont allow that thing
to take belle. he rallies the villagers and goes marching to the castle,
determined to save belle and her father, determined to kill the thing that
so they storm the castle and he and the beast fight. belle
and her father rush forward to stop the rest of the angry village men, and
belle is screaming at gaston to stop, that things aren’t as they seem. but he’s
mad with bloodlust, with revenge, and he’s about to take the beast’s head off
with his axe when the beast lunges and pushes him to the ground, pinning him
with an arm to his throat. and the muscle memory is so sudden and visceral that
gaston freezes and stares at the snarling beast and whispers, “adam?”
and the beast blinks, and pulls back a little, and goes …… “gaston!?”
literally everyone is so confused, but they only get more
confused when gaston throws himself at the beast and there’s a rush of magic as
the last petal falls and the spell is broken. gaston sees beast for who he
really is, loves him wholly and completely in the way only children can, and
the curse is broken.
so gaston goes from having the beast in his arms to having a
man, and he kisses him, outing himself in front of the whole village and not
caring in the slightest. “i’ve missed you,” adam says, reaching out a hand to
cup gaston’s cheek.
his staff are people again, and the cloud of darkness that
had fallen over the castle is lifted. the old and irritable third cousin twice
removed who’d been running the country is more than happy to hand it back over
to adam, so happy in fact that he doesn’t question anything about this
incredibly weird situation.
gaston and adam were children with a children’s love, but as
adam gets his castle and kingdom up and running again, gaston is there. and
their love deepens, and strengthens, and becomes something much more real and
true than it ever was before. and gaston knows he can’t keep this, that adam
will need to take a queen and gaston won’t be able to be with him after that.
except no one told adam that, because he goes to belle who
just, never left the castle because she likes it and it likes her and her two
favorite people are here. and also they’ll pry her from that library over her
dead body. “hey,” adam says, “so, i’m kind of the king now.”
“i noticed,” belle answers, and doesn’t look up from her
adam considers closing it, but also considers that he likes
his hands attached to his wrists. “want to get married? we’ll need to produce
an heir or two, but beyond that you’ll get all the books you want and a whole
country to boss around.” one of the things adam had quickly learned was that
belle loved bossing people around.
belle doesn’t look up from her book. he hadn’t honestly
expected her too. “okay. I’m dating plumette. im going to keep doing that.”
“nice,” he says, because plumette is a lot prettier now that
she isn’t a feather duster.
so adam find gaston and tells him that he’s marrying belle,
and gaston’s whole heart breaks but it makes sense, adam and belle make sense
together, and he wishes he could make himself hate either of them but he can’t
because he loves them both. but then adam is talking about how belle will have
the rooms next to theirs, and gaston should probably stop paying rent for his
house in the village, he lives in a literal palace, come on now.
and gaston figures out that adam is planning to stay with him, that belle is his wife and queen in name only and and gaston will
continue to be the one in his heart and in his bed. adam is talking about how
they all really need to sit down and do something about the redistribution of
tax revenue, and they should probably do it before the wedding because
otherwise their subjects will only show up to throw fruit at them. gaston cuts
him off by pressing his king and love of his life against the wall and kissing
cogsworth and lumiere walk by and pause mid-argument to wolf
whistle at them before continuing on their way. gaston and adam end up having
to hold each other up as they laugh so hard they can’t breath.
Since it’s still femslash february it seems like a perfect moment to point out that I love these two and I really wanna know who the heck they are ?? I’m glad it looks like they’re with us on the fukurodani game too, though~

Jeff kisses me as I opened the door for him to my house. My parents are out of town and I promised him l’ll help him study for his midterm. Not that my parents would care, they practically love him since we’ve been dating.
“Hey hot stuff, you can just through your stuff in my room while I get us something to eat”
As he jogs upstairs I quickly fix my hair and adjust my pajama shorts. I usually don’t care how I look around my boyfriend, but we’ve been dating for 5 months now and hasn’t even mentioned the thought of having sex with me. I pick up some chips and go upstairs where he is already laying out his textbooks.
“So we can start with World War 1 then go from there” he says as he’s looking at his book.
“Yeah sure, we can probably get through a few wars tonight.”
I jump on the bed and lay close to him. He looks up at me and smiles.
“You seem like your in a good mood, what’s up?”
“I can’t be happy to see my boyfriend?”
“You see me everyday baby”
“So you aren’t happy to see me” I fake pout.
“Shut up babe, you know I am.” He says as he pecks my lips.
“Yeah yeah” I smile. “let’s start with studying before we get tired”
“So that is what started the war?”
“Yes, but don’t forget how long the world ended”
“Yeah it lasted for 4 years.”
“Good, I’m actually a pretty good teacher”
“Shut up” I laugh as I lightly punch him in the arm.
He laughs as he looks down at me. He glances down at my lips then quickly averts back to my eyes. I do the same, but make it known I’m looking at his beautiful lips.
“Okay” he coughs. “at this rate we can g-”
I cut Jeff off by grabbing his face and smashing my lips on his. He seemed surprised at first then slowly closed his eyes. I slowly moved my hands around his neck as he put his on my leg and waist. As he deepened the kiss, he swung one of my legs on the other side of him so that I was now cradling him. As the kiss got more intense, I felt him moan against my lips. I needed air so I took that chance to take my shirt and bra off. His eyes were intensely locked on my chest and I couldn’t help but flush.
“You’re so beautiful y/n”
With that Jeff swung us over and pulled off his shirt. He went to my neck and chest and started planting soft kisses. As I slid my hands up and down his bare back, he started sucking harshly on my sweet spot. His hands started roaming my bare chest as he lightly squeezed.
“Jeeeff” I moaned.
He looked down at me biting his lip as I started tugging his pants down. He threw them off and went back to kissing me. He kissed me so slow and passionately and I loved it. I started to kiss his neck and lightly grabbed him through his underwear feeling how extremely hard he was. he groaned at my touch and that made me crazy. I just wanted him already. I needed him.
“Jeff” I asked in between our kisses as he went back to my neck.
“Do you have a…you know….a-a” I slightly moaned.
“Yes” I said kind of embarrassed.
He then stopped and slowly got off of me. Confused I sat up and pulled the sheets up to cover myself.
“Did I say something wrong?”
His back was faced towards me as he slouched over the edge of my bed.
“No, I’m sorry I just can’t do this right now”
I’d be lying if I say that didn’t kind of hurt coming from him. I mean I thought it but I didn’t think he’d say it.
“You don’t want to have sex with me” my voice cracking as I put back on my shirt.
He snaps his head around and climbs back on the bed grabbing my hand.
“No no, god no, that’s not even close trust me.”
“Then why? I don’t understand” I look down.
He grabs my face and sighs.
“I’m scared okay”
“Scared?” I say kind of amused.
“Yes, don’t laugh, I’m the scared one. I’m scared to take something so precious from you. Scared to let you down after and I’m scared that you’ll regret it.”
He lets go of my face and focuses his gaze to the wall to hide his embarrassment. It’s now my turn to grab his face.
“Jeffrey, you don’t get it do you? you’re the precious one to me. I want you to be the one to take it because I love you”
He looks up at me and cheeses.
“I love you more princess.”
“So what does this mean now?”
“Well right now, nothing cause I have to go the bathroom to handle a little mess in my pants cause of you”
I try to hold in my laugh as he runs to the bathroom in my room
I remember when I first told people around me that I wanted to go natural. It was the usual: “you don’t have the hair for it”, “going natural is not for everybody”, “your hair type doesn’t grow”, “your hair is too coarse”, “it won’t look good”, “let’s see how long you last” 🙄. Noise, noise and MORE NOISE🤣😂. I heard all of that but it never stopped me or made me rethink my decision. Once i make up my mind to do something, that’s it. I’m gonna do it and do it well. I went natural (one of the best decisions of my life) and almost 5 years later, i still have no regrets. My hair is 4c, the coarsest, most tightly coiled hair type out there and i love it like that. I love, LOVE, LOVEEEE MY HAIR😍. I learnt how to take care of it and it has been good to me. There is nothing wrong with your natural hair, just love it the way it wants and it will be good to you. I PROMISE 😊. Subscribe to my YouTube channel for hairstyle ideas and tips on how to grow 4c hair-> https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU3DA7eABevw8ToCvYfIbEw
