i might make a part 2

Hi! I'm looking for new kinds of tea - what are you favourite flavours? Thanks

You sent this to me ages ago and I kept it in mind and just made a new YouTube video all about tea, which you can find here! (I get quite a few asks about tea, which makes sense, since it’s a cozy-themed blog!) 

There are so many more I need to try, so I might do a part 2! 

If you don’t feel like watching the video, then here’s a photo I took that includes most of the teas I talk about. 

Hope you’re having a beautiful November, and thanks for messaging! XO

xzeihoranth replied to your post: What kind of secrets do you think Raven will…

thing is, raven left before summer died, otherwise part of yang’s speech to blake in volume 2 wouldn’t make sense

Yeah, but I still think Raven had a portal to Summer and probably showed up and saw what happened to her, which only added to her anger towards Ozpin and all the others for trusting him. 

Summer may not be the reason Raven left, but she might be the reason Raven never came back.

Part 3

It’s as she’s poring over the latest granary reports that her door bursts open—something that might have surprised her under normal circumstances, had she not been expecting this exact entrance for days now.

“Have you heard what they’re calling her?” exclaims Arthur, barely waiting until the door is closed to start in on his tirade.

Elia doesn’t look up from the reports. “Yes, Arthur, I’ve heard. I really don’t see the problem. She’s good at arms, that should make you proud.”

“She’s going by Mariah Morningstar.”

“A nice bit of alliteration, don’t you think? Rhaenys came up with it, I believe.”


With a sigh, she sets aside the papers and turns to him. He looks about two minutes away from having an apoplexy. “All right, perhaps it’s a bit on the nose,” she allows. “But she’s four-and-ten, we should be grateful she’s not sneaking off with stableboys.”

On the nose?” he asks. “She may as well announce it to the world.”

Elia rolls her eyes. “Honestly, Arthur. We may never have confessed who her father is, but everyone at court has figured it out. She looks just like you, and we’ve shared a bed for over twenty years now. It’s not exactly a secret.”

“She’s too much like your brother.”

“She’s as stubborn as me and as dedicated as you. Maybe Oberyn enables her, but we’ve got only ourselves to blame for the rest.”

He slumps down on the bed, as tightly strung as a bow.

“Oh, relax. You’re going to get wrinkles.” With a sly smile, she abandons her reports entirely and climbs onto the bed. Slowly sliding his shirt over his head, she murmurs, “I know a few ways to help with that.”

“I’m not going to let this go, you know,” he warns, even as he flips her to her back and begins unlacing her gown.

“Yes, you are,” she laughs. “You will let our little girl have her nickname and you will continue training her just like you always have.”

He tosses her gown aside and mutters, “Maybe I won’t.”

“Then Rhaenys and Oberyn will take up the mantle.” She reaches up and gently cups his cheek. “It’s just a name, my love.”

He kisses her palm. “You’re right, I just…”

“It’s not a sin to worry about your child,” she says, “but it is a sin to leave your queen wanting.”

His frown turns into a smirk. “I can fix that.”

How to organize your sock drawer (with pictures)

Step 1: Have an empty drawer to place all socks (preferably clean) inside


Step 2: make sure drawer is truly clear of any other items. Gremlins and trolls are known for stealing socks in the Midwest, but other parts of the world might have sock drawer dwellers that should be removed and relocated to the spare linen closet.

All clear.

Step 3: place socks in drawer. You may do so all at once or one at a time like I did.


Step 4: place drawer in drawer receptacle such as dresser or wardrobe or under-the-bed compartment. I have a dresser.

Almost there.

Step 5: shove all stray socks into drawer.

Be careful about catching the toes.


Step 7: lament the loss of the one sock that caused this whole mess from the very beginning.

Congratulations. You have organized your sock drawer.

Any questions?

I’m 2 eps behind and irl turmoil has got me worse for wear, but dammit if I won’t rise up from the dead to make my outrage known. 


FFS, he’s known only pain, solitude, and contempt for the better part of his existence, and now the one being whose opinion might still mean something to him is, once more, beating him down and treating him like an irredeemable monster. 

Get some new tricks, writers, because we’re all getting really tired of this one-trick-pony. 


So I decided to draw more young!Pro-Heroes AU featuring Endeavor, Eraserhead and Present Mic! 8D

supernatural out of context



Hey guys! So I’ve been receiving questions regarding my note-taking style and strategy for quite some time now but I believe I have never answered them in detail. The good news is, I finally decided to make a post about this (plus, I had fun making the graphics :D). Note that I am a visual learner, so my note-taking methods may not be effective for some of you, but I hope you can all learn something.

Class Notes

I only use one notebook for all my class notes, an A4 grid notebook whose pages I divide into two columns.

I use the outline method for in-class notes, which means I write information chronologically, in the order that they are taught. Some teachers do not have properly structured presentations/lessons (good thing my physics teacher does) so when in need, I use arrows to connect related information.

Abbreviations to me are one of the most important things to master when taking notes. I personally make them up as I go along. Some examples of abbreviations I use are:

  • w/c - which
  • w/ - with
  • cpd - compound
  • envt - environment
  • digenz - digestive enzyme

It might be confusing, but to me, knowing the context and part of speech are enough for all abbreviations to be comprehended.

Here’s an example: ‘Indonesia’s tsunami pre-warning system is made up of two types of components’ could become ‘Indo’s snmi pre-warn sys 2 type comp’.

After Class

The first thing I would do is highlight keywords and terminology (and sometimes formulas). For physics, since my teacher is relatively succinct, I don’t really highlight, but for humanities and biology, I look for words that would be expected by a mark scheme, words that are crucial to the understanding of each particular piece of information.

I would then check if the material taught coincides with the syllabus, and if not, note down any points that are missing or have yet to be taught. You could write these on a post it or on the syllabus itself, but I prefer to highlight the syllabus’ pdf file.

Rewritten Notes

My rewritten notes are arranged based on the order they appear in the syllabus unless there are pieces of information that are related to more than one topic.

I use a black pen for rewriting notes as well as colored pens to write keywords and terminology only. I know some people who write whole sentences in colored pens but to me that is ineffective; we all have our own learning styles. When making tables, I usually use different colors for different columns (see the table for different types of radiation above) which is most often the color I associate with each word. For example, water would be blue, ocean would be a darker shade, ice would be a lighter shade, and water vapor would be purple.

I still abbreviate words in my rewritten notes, but they’re not as condensed as the ones in my class notes. Another thing I find helpful is leaving a bit of space between separate points especially if the page doesn’t have a lot of diagrams. I can’t think linearly, so I can’t remember super lengthy bullet points.

I use mildliners and a drawing pen to make my diagrams (more of these in my biology notes) but I only start with pencil if it’s a complex diagram. I rarely highlight my rewritten notes, but even if I do, it’s usually only the headings and formulas.

I don’t have a rough draft for my notes, but I try to visualize the layout. I try to alternate between words and pictures/diagrams so that when I’m sitting for an exam, all I have to do is imagine that I’m looking at that page and I can remember where everything is.

Well, that’s all from me. I hope that this information could be of some use to every single one of you. Don’t hesitate to ask me questions if you’re confused about note-taking or any other problems you might have :)

anonymous asked:

Sorry, if you've answered this before, but do you have any tips on drawing mouths and lips?

Hello anon! :D I’m not the best at making tutorials and giving tips but I’ll do my best to answer your question! ^^

I sure do love drawing lips! It might be in fact my favourite part of the face to draw. 

Let’s see what makes them so irresistible ;)

tip 1: let them shine! that tiny shiny spot does wonders for the lips - it makes them fuller, softer and more three dimensional. It also makes the lips look slightly wet. Sexy!

tip 2: Build the depth with some darker spots. Quirking corners are great for that, and if you make the darkest spot in the middle of the mouth it seems like it’s about to part. And maybe whisper something seductive ;)

tip 3: The very middle of upper lip is my favourite area, it gives the mouth its distinct character. It’s also a great spot to play with shadows, one lighter stroke, one darker stroke and you have a very dramatic shading going on! 

tip 4: When drawing lineart it’s good to keep the line varying in width and pressure. Equally thin, flat line might look good in anime, but even there it’s rarely the case. Making the line thicker in the shadowy part of the mouth adds depth to your drawing. 

General remarks:

I almost never outline the upper lip, it tends to look weird. Just a thin “U” shape in the middle is usually enough.

Upper lip is usually in the shadow, at least half of it. Lower lip tends to catch the light, especially with pouty plump lips. The more shadow you add under it, the fuller the lips look. 

When drawing male characters I usually play around with skin tones instead of pink and red (see the third row of examples). But it’s not a rule. Some boys rock them rosy lips. ;)

Never paint the teeth white, never. Gray, yellowish and pinkish tones are great. 

And the final tip: use reference! Look for pictures of people with beautiful lips, with thin lips and full lips, try to see which line goes where and how it changes the shape and expression. I hardly ever draw without a reference.

Good luck!  👄


Mean Girls, Seventeen edition: Who are the plastics? They’re teen royalty. If Pledis was Ceci Magazine, they would always be on the cover. Plan V + My Angel

Frost (a langst mini fic )

I don’t really know how to describe this AU besides the fact that lance has ice powers and its a bit short ( @moppingleshitoutofyou ) hope you guys like it!

check out some of my other mini fics here

At first, Lance had thought they were beautiful. He wasn’t exactly sure when they got there or even how they got there, all he knew was that they were lovely.

 The first time he noticed them was when he was changing out of his pajamas and saw a sprinkle of blue gracing his stomach in the mirror. Amazed, he had glanced down and stare at the light blue freckles that dusted his stomach, like a sky full of stars. He remembered how they seemed to glint under the soft lighting in his room like jewels. 

He also remembered the pain that came soon afterwards. 

As soon as his fingertips touched the marks, they began to glow harshly and that was when the stinging began. It felt as if someone was stabbing him with a million thumbtacks, which was not a fun feeling. Yelping, Lance immediately stopped touching his stomach, dulling the sting of the marks. For a second Lance thought he was still asleep because when did freckles stab you? He was pretty sure that was not normal. 

“Paladins! You are needed in the control room, immediately! I repeat, you are needed in the control room immediately!” 

Sparing one last look at the blue marks on his skin, Lance quickly pushed away thoughts on the freckles and focused on the task at hand, getting his paladin gear on in two seconds. After all, it was just a little pain right? And it wasn’t like his hand was going to be on his stomach anyway, so what’s the problem?

It only took a week for the freckles to span across his entire abdomen. Which presented a problem as they team didn’t exactly have time to deal with the marks, especially with the big diplomatic mission they were embarking on soon. Not like the marks cared, they just seemed to cause more trouble. 

Ever since he first noticed them, there’s always been this dull sting in the back of his mind, just barely noticeable but always there. Not only that, Lance seemed to be… freezing things now? Of course he wasn’t turning anything to solid ice but if his hand lingered to long in a certain area, tendrils of frost would begin to dance across the surface (The first time that happened freaked him out just a tad). The freckles also began to glow more often, mostly at random times. He would just be chilling on the couch and BAM, his chest was now a light up display (yet another thing that freaked him out). 

The logical decision would be to tell the team, but how could he? Sure the diplomatic mission was a huge deal, but that wasn’t the only reason Lance wasn’t coming clean about the strange things that were happening. This was his chance to prove his worth to his team, that he was more than just Lance-the-jokester or Lance-the-screwup. That he was worthy of being the Blue Paladin and of Blue herself. 

He could live with a little pain and some weird ice magic if it meant he finally had a thing.  

It took a matter of days before the freckles spread to his arms, stopping a few inches short of his wrists. They were currently on the planet Eyena, a relatively peaceful planet that were known for their mines and the valuable ores within them. Lance couldn’t mess up this meeting, this alliance with a species that could help the team immensely. He wasn’t that selfish. 

It wasn’t like the marks would listen to him though. The pain only worsened and suddenly everything he touched with his hands froze. He was forced to wear gloves constantly to hide the power he now had, the delicate loops of blue that now covered them. The pain was constant and even Blue began to worry at this point. However, Lance put up his brave face and pushed through it all, the pain, the ache, the emptiness…

It felt like only hours before Lance could feel the chill of ice spreading across his body, practically crawling up his throat. There was a ringing in his ears now and he somehow managed to freeze the gloves he wore as well. The only good thing was that the meetings were almost over and soon Lance could be back on the castle, away from prying eyes to finally fix whatever was happening. 

Until then, he nodded along with whatever one of the Eyenians were saying, playing his part as the Blue Paladin and knowing he was slowly, finally becoming worthy of actually being the Blue Paladin. 

How minutes had flown by? Lance couldn’t recall what had happened in the past few moments, as he was now in his room back at the castle. It had only been a few minutes right? Lance could feel his breath quickening as he glanced wildly around, how did he get here in just a few minutes? The room seemed to grow colder with each sharp intake he took, the bed beginning to freeze beneath him. Had it been more than just a few minutes? The ringing was now a roaring storm in his ears. It couldn’t have been than just a few? Lance could feel his hands shaking, the marks glowing a bright blue as the ice spread farther, faster around the room. It had been just a few minutes. Maybe two or three? Lance felt like tearing his hair out, he felt so confused at the moment, so out of place, out of time. 

Was it only seconds now? How many seconds had flown by? He knew his room wasn’t always this cold and shiny, and it certainly hadn’t been a second ago. The marks burned harshly, and was that someone calling his name? It couldn’t have been. Because only a second ago he had been fine, he is fine, is he fine?
