Magical herbal DIY’s for every part of your precious body.

For the witches (or anyone else) who are into herbs and smelling good.

The magical attributes of the DIY’S according to the herbs used are highlighted in the contents section below in brackets. You can choose one or multiple attributes to focus on while using these products to match your intent. 


1. Floral facial steam: Leaves your face feeling fresh AF, smelling good. (Protection, love, centering and psychic power)

2. Rose & chamomile bath bags: Relaxing AF, smells good, SUPER CLENSING. (Protection, centering and meditation)

3. Clay and Lavender face mask: We all know clay is dope for our skin, and lavender can never go wrong. (Peace, protection, love, purification)

4. Peppermint foot scrub: Leaves your feet feeling and smelling FIIIINEEE. (Travel, money, healing, luck, strength)


1. Floral facial steam

YOU WILL NEED (The ingredients below are per 6 treatments so multiply it for as many treatments as you’d like): 

-3 100ml jars

-2/3 cup of lavender buds, dried

-1/3 cup of rose petals, dried

-2/3 cup chamomile flowers, dried


Mix up the herbs ad divide them into each jar (roughly half a cup each)


• Remove make up or dirt by using a gentle cleanser
• Place herbs in a heatproof bowl (use 4 tablespoons herbs per treatment – each jar is enough for 2 treatments)
• Pour one pint of boiling water into a heat proof bowl (USE MOON WATER FOR EXTRA BENEFITS)
• Place bowl on a sturdy surface (like a table) and lower face over the bowl (it’s usually best to sit in a chair that is pulled up close to a table)
• Place a towel over your head to create a tent over the bowl (the towel helps the steam stay close to the face and not evaporate into the air so quickly)
• Stay here for about 15 to 20 minutes- while you are here start by centring yourself, and then think about your intent and what you wish for the herb to bring to you, imagine the steam cleansing away any negativity. 


2. Rose & chamomile bath bags

YOU WILL NEED (The ingredients below are per 3 treatments so multiply it for as many treatments as you’d like):

-3 Muslin bags

-¾ cup dried rose petals

-¾ cup dried chamomile flowers

-1 ½ cup epsom salts

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Place 1 cup of mixture in each muslin bag. Tie the top of each bag to close tightly.


To use bath tea bag, tie bag to faucet so the water runs through it as the bath fills. Once the bath is full of warm water, remove the bag from the faucet and let it float in the bath. Soak for at least 15 minutes - while doing so, remember to relax, centre yourself, remember your intent and what you wish to get out of this treatment and imagine the salts and hot water clensing away any negative energy.


3. Clay and Lavender face mask

YOU WILL NEED (once again makes 3 , adjust to your liking):

-3 100 ml jars

-½ cup lavender flower powder

-1 1/8 cup white cosmetic clay


Mix up and divide into jars, roughly half a cup per jar. 


At time of use, mix 1 tablespoon of lavender-clay mix with 2-3 teaspoons of water, cooled chamomile tea, or hydrosol, until a paste forms. Spread over the face, avoiding the eyes. Leave for 15 minutes. This mask draws out toxins and negative energy so make sure to visualise the clay mask absorbing the negative energy for maximum effect, meanwhile, pour your intent into this procedure and absorb the lavender and mother earth’s clay into your system. Wash off with warm water and a wash cloth. 

BOOOM yo face is untoxic AF super clensed, and smelling damn fineeee.

4. Peppermint foot scrub

What you need (MAKES 3):

-3 250-300(ish)ml jars

-1/3 cup fine sea salt or epsom salt

-¾ cup oil (grapeseed, sweet almond or olive)

-Few drops peppermint essential oil

-¼ cup dried peppermint leaves


Mix ingredients in bowl, divide into jars, roughly 1 cup per jar.


Rub into damp foot in circular motions. Our feet pick up alot of negative energy, and are important because they take us places in the physical world, make sure to focus on your intent and drawing out the negative energy.


Happy witching

Hey! I have a kind of random question: what korean beauty products do u use?? I am really curious bc I need recommendations? Sorry; it's a weird question.

It’s a great question, don’t worry! I can understand that, I love finding something new (and if that something new fits me perfectly then I’m super happy so!)

Sweats, I have a lot of stuff though so it might be a bit long-ish…

I’ll just start with skincare because it’s always what I’m looking for first:

The Face Shop Rice water bright rich cleansing oil (from normal to dry skin). The first cleansing oil I actually tried. It’s a pleasure using it, the smell is amazing, I will definitely buy it again. Removes make-up well for me, but I’ve read people saying it has a bit of a trouble re-moving very strong make-up, but since I don’t use it I’ll give it an A+.

• I have a few foams; one from The Face Shop as well - Rice water bright cleansing foam. Smells amazing as well, I nearly finished it. I have one stored I want to try, so not yet sure if I buy it again, but I love this one too. Also I have one from Skinfood Egg white pore foam - I think I’ll buy this one. These two might be a bit drying to your skin if using without a uh..bubble maker? Not sure how that thing called in english. It dried me out, I made that thing that helps making richer foam, now I don’t have any dryness so! Skinfood will probably be great for oilier skin.

• Theeen I have The Secret key’s Milk brightening toner. Still not sure about it, I broke out a lot when I was using it, but I am not sure if it was from it or from..period, I’m sorry, Still haven’t retried it, so don’t have an opinion except that I think the smell is pretty good.

• UUH i bought a lot of creams in the search for the perfect one. I have Tony Moly Pure eco snail moisture gel (smells fantastic, used it for the face a lot, didn’t break out, nothing really changed nor for the worst nor for the better, now use it mostly on my hands); I also recently bought Mizon’s All in one Snail repair cream (because I REALLY REALLY want a few marks to fade); comparing to Tony Moly’s it does make skin very soft to the touch. But I’ve been using it for like, six days, so other than that I can’t say how effective it’s going to be. Doesn’t quite smell, pleasant to use. Depending on how it goes next, I think I’ll re-buy it. I also use Aloe Soothing Gel by Nature Republic. used it all the time before i bought Mizon’s, never broke out. for now uh.. I kind of use it after shaving. HUGE container. I wonder if I will be able to finish it before it expires. Next (GOd, there are so many) Skinfood Fresh Apple sparkling water cream. Use it before make-up. It’s supposed to keep your skin matte, I love the smell of it, nice to use. My skin is pretty normal, so I don’t know how much it actually does what it’s supposed to. I’ll try it in summer and find out:”D

• nooow MASKS. oh, my love. sweet, sweet masks. I think my AAABsolute favourite is Skinfood’s Black sugar wash off mask. A present from my friend. Basically a scrub that you let to stay on your skin after you scrubbed. Smells amazing, leaves skin suuuper soft afterwards, will definitely 100% buy it again. Theeen I have Volcanic ash pore pack by secret nature. After using it the skin seems a bit brighter, a bit softer. Nothing too outstanding, but it’s fairly pleasant overall. I wanted to try Holika Holika’s Soda Pore Cleansing Bubble mask BECAUSE O MY GOD. BUBBLES. ON. MY FACE. BUBBLES. I swear I’m a child. I WAS REALLY CURIOUS OKAY. Pretty much the same effect as with Volcanic ash pore. Probably one time fun for me. (I mean. one bottle time, ahah). Theeen I wanted to try Elizavecca’s Hell Pore Clay mask, I think it was the first mask I bought. Wasn’t painful for me, skin is pretty soft afterwards, but I don’t think it does much for my skin? Probably because I don’t quite have that much to push out. It doesn’t quite catch it. Can remove dead skincells though, I’m sure. God. IS this all? No. I recently bought Holika Holika Honey Sleeping pack (I have canola); I’m still not sure, I had quite a big zit when I went to bed with it, in the morning it was, like, much paler and didn’t feel on my skin. Was it the mask’s doing? was the zit supposed to fade away? Not yet sure, since I bought it very recently with mizon. For masks I think that’s all. Kinda sticky because of the honey, but smells nice.

• I have one emulsion by The Saem Urban Eco Harakeke. Moisturising, smells good, make-up goes smoothly on it.

• the last for skincare: Ciracle pore control blackhead off sheet. I only used it twice, and it’s quite tricky and I guess takes some used to. basically does the job of steaming the face without steam and probably works a bit better. Pushes out everything from your nose, you just have to remove it. Didn’t push out as much as I’ve seen on pictures and in reviews for me, but it does it’s job. Nose is as smooth as a jellyfish. SO SMOOTH afterwards.

FINALLY I THINK WE ARE DONE WITH SKINCARE. OH DEAR GOD, not a million of products have passed.

Nooooow up to Make-uuuup~~ 

• BB CREAMS. I swear on those. I. am. a nerd. Before I tried any bb or cc creams that are sold in our stores they never fit me ever. They always felt so greasy and dark for me. I don’t know, I had the curse of bb creams and now i think it’s finally gone. The first korean one I tried was Aritaum Full Cover. The coverage IS nice, can be a bit shiny in a certain lighting, and feels pretty heavy on the skin. I think my problem with it was mostly my dislike for powders, so it felt sticky, but I think with people who DO use powders it’s going to work better. After that I tried Holika Holika Petit BB (Moisturizing). MY LOVE STARTED. I love how it feels, in certain lighting it makes the skin seem absolutely perfect, pleasant on daylight, doesn’t fell like a mask on a skin. Has universal tone. The Last one is CC, actually, but not less amazing. I’ve been using mostly it recently, CC Color change blemish balm. This one is MAAGIC because it’s like greenish-white, and then you put it on the face, and it turns into your face and it’s MAGIC i swear I love how it feels(doesn’t) on the skin, the coverage is decent for me, Baaaarely noticeable on the skin. I’ll definitely buy holika holika and this one again.

• as for concealers I have Aritaum Full cover liquid concealer for undereye (the tube is huge for concealer, I’m not sure if I will ever finish it since it takes such a minimum for me); and Facetone Creamy Tip concealer for any spots. Good coverage, most likely I’ll buy it as well.

• I have Sweet Cotton pore cover base by Holika Holika, still not sure about it, doesn’t quite hide pores much, at least for me, but the make up does seem to stay longer with it. I’ve read the reviews for people to whom it really worked in regard of hiding pores, so! Might just be me, striving for absolute perfection.

• I have A’pieu Cheek Chok blush. Overall nice, but I think it’s a bit too pigmented for me and it seems to be a bit hard to blend. Creamy texture, but not quite as creamy as I wanted.

• last but not least… tints. Fresh cherry tint, pleasant texture, but I think I picked a bit of a wrong shade for me, though if I use it with The Saem’s Saemmul Real Tint (it’s orangish) it gives a fantastic effect. I also have the latter in dark purple. Love those tints, stay forever (especially the dark one - which is also quite hard to wash off) surprise, tint leaves a tint! :”D Love these, gotta buy again most likely. If I ever finish those, ahah.

I’ve been writing this message for so long. I’m sorry it’s huge. I’m sorry I’m a nerd when it comes to makeup and skincare. Goodbye, money, GOODBUY. ;)

Baby oil -

Apple cider vinegar - • ½ cup for detox bath (resets your pH balance) • Makes hair shiner

If you wear make-up, if you don’t wear make up, You have to take care of your brows and lashes!! And mama her is gonna give you some advice.
• use coconut oil and apply with either a liner or a clean mascara brush. Aim for the roots!! That’s where they grow.
• vaseline helps protect your strands preventing them from falling off therefor giving you longer lashes, bonus tip: if you don’t feel like mascara or your eyebrows being a bitch just rub some vasaline!!! You won’t look greasy, more like shiny.
•Vitamin E!! Get those vitamin E pills and pop em or buy em at the store. You can’t go wrong. Apply them like you do mascara.
• okay so you’ve got length but you only got 4 strands. USE CASTOR OIL. It stimulates hair growth, obviously resulting in more hair. Do this in all the sparse parts on your eyebrows. Do it on your eyelashes. But careful not to get it in your eye, no bueno.

•Get some eyelash serums if you’ve got the money Drink your water, get your vitamins!!

• Stimulate your hair growth!! Every night use a clean mascara brush to stimulate the growth. It just gets the cells moving.
Just guess the measurements like me.
You’ll need:
Coconut oil
Vitamin E
Castor oil
Clean mascara tube with brush (opt)
Q tips (opt)
Just mix this shit all together and pour it into a mascara tube. At night (pref) put it on your lashes with the brush, add a couple layers avoid contact w/ eye. Put this on your brows and be amazed. If you don’t have a mascara tube a small container and q tips will do just fine.
Random tips:
1.Try not to wear mascara for a couple of days to let em breath.
2.Use coconut oil or vaseline to remove make up (try oils that won’t break you out)
3. Try soaking a cotton pad with make up remover/oil leave on eye for a little but to dissolve make up.

Long eyelashes and thick eyebrows are all I could ever hope for and I hope you achieve it because you are a holy godess

💖 Skin Care Nighttime Tips  💖

- Don’t skip nightly cleaning. Remove make-up before you go to bed, so your skin can breathe and repair itself while you sleep! 

- Don’t use overly harsh cleanser. It’ll strip away natural oils your skin needs! Use: coconut oil, apple cider vinegar mixed with water (1 part vinegar, 2 parts water), honey and lemon juice (2 tablespoons honey, 1 table spoon lemon juice) or yoghurt. Alternatively, buy a gentle, natural, organic one. 

- How to know if your cleanser is too harsh? If your skin feels very tight, dry or “thirsty” after using it, it’s not a sign it’s effective - it’s a sign it drys out your skin too much! 

- Don’t forget neck, decolletage, and behind the ears! Clean and moisturize them too. 

- Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Nighttime is the ideal time for your skin to rehydrate! Use: Coconut oil, olive oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil. Alternatively, buy a gentle, natural, organic one.

- Mix vitamin E oil, lavender essential oil or tea tree essential oil in your moisturizer for a extra skin care kick (a few drops are enough!) 

- Put a mix of yoghurt and cucumber on your face for 15 minutes, then rise it off. It’s super hydrating and refreshing! Do this once or twice a week. 

- Get enough sleep!  No nighttime product should be expected to work wonders if you aren’t getting enough sleep. 

- Wash your pillowcases regularly, so your face doesn’t lay in bacteria and dirt all night. You’ll reduce breakouts by washing them regularly! 

- Go to bed naked (if circumstances allow it), to let your skin breathe. 

- It’s late at night and you’re hungry? Eat fruit - your skin will thank you! 

College Make-up Kit Essentials

What’s inside my college make-up kit?

I always wanted to look fresh and young as much as possible with or without make-up. Who wouldn’t want that? To achieve the flawless look, taking care of your face is necessary when you love doing your make-up daily. In my case, I’ve mentioned this before but it’s worth repeating, I don’t wear makeup everyday. I wear make up depending on my mood. Sometimes I wear minimal make-up or even none. I’m just not afraid to leave house with naked face. But, everyday is not a good day. I rarely get pimples but when I do, they all come at once! You know the red-days story, it’s totally a bad day when make-up can’t hide your pimpies or whatever facial skin flaws like blemishes or dark spots.

Below, I have listed the items inside my school make-up kit that every college girl should own. Those make-up basics can be bought at Watsons in an affordable price and if you’re looking for best products to build your first make-up kit, I highly recommend all of them. But, what works for me might not works for you so make sure to read all the features/instructions before using a product. Here’s the details:

BTS Reaction To Their Girlfriend Wearing No Makeup For The First Time

 Hey guys! Sorry me and @taeguboi haven’t done these in a while. I work and she is at college… So here we go …

Rap Monster

You would have just removed your make up in the bedroom and you go walk to the kitchen to put the wipe in the bin. You then hear the door open and you quickly cover your face as Namjoon walks in the kitchen. 

Namjoon: “Hey y/n why you cover your face?”

You: “Because i just removed my make up and I don’t want you to see me look ugly.”

He walks over to you and says “y/n do you trust me?” You hang your head down low with your hands still on your face and nod your head, and with that, he carefully removes your hands from your face. He then carefully places his finger on your chin and lifts your head up and smiles brightly and says “y/n you look beautiful” and kisses you softly on your lips.

You and Jin are both in the bedroom and you say to Jin “Jin baby could you look away for me?” He looks at you and says “Why y/n? I don’t understand.” You say “I don’t want you to see me without make up on” 

He says “How about you and I both remove our make up at same time?” You umm and ahh about then say “Ok then” 

You both take a make up wipe, you both remove your make up together. 

You both finish and Jin says “ y/n you look beautiful… but not as good as me.”

You’re sat watching TV. You have already removed your make up and you’re so zoned in to the TV that you haven’t noticed that Yoongi has come into the room. He stands there for a minute admiring you without your make up, then he would sit down next to you and say “That’s better y/n.”You look at him with a confused face totally forgetting that you have removed your make up. 

“Y/n you look better without make up and I have said in the past that I would prefer you without make up.” You look at him and say “But I look ugly Yoongs.”

“Y/n stop please listen. You look beautiful without make up.” You blush and he just smiles and says “You’re welcome baby,” planting a kiss on your forehead.

The previous night, you had made sure to get into bed after Hobi so that he couldn’t really see you properly without your make up.

Waking up the next morning, you’re secretly pleased that he isn’t awake yet, so you take your chance and head straight to the shower.

Coming out of the shower, it is sort of to your dismay that he is now out of bed as you exit the bathroom, before you are able to put your make up on for the day. The sunlight creeps in over your face as he greets you with the biggest sunshine smile you’ve ever seen.

“Jagi! Oh my god! You look so radiant and beautiful!” he exclaims, like a true fan boy for you, and the level of excitement at your pure face is so extra like “I can’t even! You melt my heart so much jagi!” It just gets so corny and you feel embarrased that you cover your face with your hands.

Gently removing your hands from your face, he mellows down and stares genuinely into your eyes – “Seriously, y/n… you look so beautiful right now.”

You would be in the room and you’re putting make up when Jimin comes in the bedroom as he had already been out and come back. He says  “Y/n please don’t put your make up on; you look pretty without, just looking at you now.” He comes over and kisses your cheek. You look in the mirror and you smile. He smiles and then kisses your shoulder and says “There you are baby”

You’re just doing normal chores around the house on a day off, and it takes a while for you to notice but as Taehyung is sat there on the sofa, seemingly just staring into thin air, but he is watching your every move, and more specifically, he’s focusing on your face.

Having never seen you without make up before, he’s trying to get used to how amazing he thinks you look without even trying. He’s basically living up to his nickname of ‘Blank Tae’, jaw loose and mouth open, with a docile expression.

“Tae, what are you gawping at?” you ask him, tilting your head sideways to meet his level as you’re still standing.

“I… uh…. just… I think you’re amazing.” he replies with a calm and mellow tone.

“Aw, Tae, that’s really sweet!” you tell him “But why the sudden… emotional moment like this?” you ask him.

He gets out of his seat to stand close to you, doing nothing but staring at you. He eventually breaks the silence with “I really like you without your make up jagiya… your beauty is ethereal to me.”

The day before, Jungkook had hidden your make up as he actually wanted to see your beautiful face.

You: “Kookie.. Where’s my make up box?”

Jungkook walks in the room and says “You’re not allowed it jagi.” “But Kookie, I need it!” 

He looks at you and says “Jagi, I can see you don’t need it. You look beautiful without it.” You stand there for a minute then say “But Kookie…” 

He says “No buts; you’re not having it back until you go a couple of days without make up,” he smirks and you can’t help smile and he comes to you and kisses you cheek.

Advertisers must convince young women that they are in need of constant improvement largely to get and keep boys’ attention without threatening young women’s views of themselves as intelligent, self directed, and equal. Buzzwords like “empowerment,” “self-determination,” and “independence” are sprinkled liberally across their pages. But this seemingly progressive rhetoric is used to sell products and ideas that keep girls doing gender in appropriately feminine ways, leading them to reproduce, rather than challenge, gender hierarchies. An ad for a depilatory cream, for instance, tells girls that they are “unique, determined, and unstoppable,” so they should not “settle… for sandpaper skin.” Feminist demands for political and economic equality - and the refusal to settle for low-wages, violence, and second-class citizenship - morph into a refusal to settle for less than silky skin. Pseudo-feminist language allows young women to believe that they can “empower” themselves at the checkout counter by buying the accoutrements of traditional femininity. Girls’ potential choice to shun make-up or hair-removal disappears, replaced by their choice of an array of beauty products promising to moisturize, soften, and smooth their troubles away.

aleclighdwood  asked:

ok ok .. how about domestic!malec headcanons? because i know this is what you are all about (as am i) so yeah .. just give me boyfriends/husbands being domestic and happy, please and thanks! 💗

- every morning when they wake up, they exchange soft smiles and lazy kisses and if one of them tries to leave the bed, the other tightens their arms around them and snuggles in closer and they’ll stay like that for as long as possible, wrapped around each other, neither of them willing to let the other go.
- magnus always waits up for alec when he’s out on missions so he can make sure his boyfriend is okay but also because he hates going to bed without him.
- often though alec walks in to find magnus curled up on the couch, fast asleep and he cant help but smile as he heads over to him and caresses his cheek, simply whispering magnus’ name and his breath always catches when magnus’ eyes flutter open unglamoured and a lazy smile makes it way onto his face
- they always want to do nice things for each other. so when magnus gets home after a long day of dealing with stressful clients, alec is in the kitchen serving up magnus’ favourite meal so they can sit and eat together which they hardly ever get to do.
- one of magnus’ favourite things to do is surprise alec at work, the way his boyfriend’s face lights up when he sees him, the scowl that was there before now nowhere to be seen. he also likes how alec grabs his hand and doesn’t let go as they walk around the institute, not caring about the looks other shadowhunters are throwing their way.
- it’s the little things that always gives them a warm feeling in their stomach, like how magnus gives alec a quick kiss on the lips when they say goodbye, how alec wraps an arm around magnus’ waist to pull him closer when they’re walking together and how magnus runs his fingers through alec’s hair when they’re cuddled up on the couch or in bed, how alec grabs a make up wipe and gently removes magnus’ make up when he sees that his boyfriend is exhausted and barely able to stay awake.
- they love just talking to each other. god how they love just watching the other chat about their day and how they’re feeling. they just enjoy sitting on the balcony, underneath the stars, abandon glasses of wine in front of them, the cold air causing them to shiver and pull one another closer as they listen to one another.
- all of their loved ones don’t miss all the small things, like how the two of them say “we’re going home” instead of “we’re going back to magnus’ loft” and how sometimes when they go round to magnus’ late in the evening, magnus is wearing a sweater that without a doubt belongs to alec. they notice how magnus and alec slip the other’s name into conversation when their significant other is not around and how they share smiles or loving touches when they’re wrapped up in their own little bubble.
- they’re just so obviously in love with each other and that never changes. even after they’re married, even after years and years together, they’re still each other’ home.

"it's six o'clock in the morning, you're not having vodka" - Simon

Simon X Reader

Description: 24 “it’s six o'clock in the morning, you’re not having vodka"

Requested?: yes

Notes: reblogged a thing and a few people sent in numbers. I went on a bit of a ramble tbh 😂😂😂

You sat at the bottom of the stairs. Phone by your side, checking the time constantly. The boys had gone out last night and now it was 6am and they hadn’t come home yet. You were growing worried and had sent messages to everyone and anyone. No one knew where they were and they hadn’t replied, not even your best friend Simon, who would always message you to let you know where they were.

The door swung open, hitting the wall beside it heavily. "Hey, Kate! We’re home!” A very drunk and unstable JJ slurred walking over to you and hugging you tightly.

“I was worried! Why didn’t you message me?” You said throwing your arms in the air and looking straight at simon who was trying to pull off his shoes by the door. “Ah, don’t worry! Everyone, Bed!” You said, laughing at how mother-like you were being.

JJ, Josh and Vikk crawled their way comically up the stairs. You stood up and turned to follow them up the stairs when Simon took your arm and pulled you towards the kitchen.

“Simon! What are you doing?” You laughed sitting yourself at the kitchen counter whilst Simon rummaged in the fridge and cupboards.

“I need vodka!” He said throwing his arms up in the air as he found the last bottle on the shelf. He started to open the bottle but you snatched it away quickly.

“Simon! No! It’s six o'clock in the morning, you’re not having vodka!” You giggled, reaching into the cupboard on your tip toes to put the bottle back. You gave up trying to put it on the original shelf so put the bottle on the lowest shelf. You turned around to see Simon smirking. “I don’t know what you’re smirking at young man!” You said, pointing your finger at him and trying to act annoyed.

But, God, he looked so sexy. His hair wasn’t freshly spiked so looked fluffy and was flat against his forehead. His toned body could be seen through is skin tight white shirt. And all you could think about, was how much you wanted to kiss him.

A wave of emotions ran through you and made you quickly take Simons shirt in your hand. You looked up at him for some kind of feeling that he wanted the same as you. But there was nothing. Simon stared down at you, blankly and, if anything, confused. You let go of his shirt and laughed. Of course he wouldn’t want to kiss me, you thought.

“Good night, Simon.” You said, a dagger impaling your heart as he simply smiles and nods in return. You walk out of the kitchen and up the stairs and go to your bedroom.

You dump yourself down on your dressing table chair. You find your make up wipes and remove any make up that had survived the night. You grabbed your brush and tied your hair into a loose bun. Then, you changed into your black Sidemen tracksuit bottoms and matching hoodie and climbed into bed. Hot tears fell down your face. How could you be so stupid? Simon could have any girl he wanted, why would he pick you? The girl he’s known for 10 years? The one he’s seen with spots and braces?

A light knock at the door wakes you up from your daydream. You quickly wipe the tears with your duvet and quickly say “come in”. A small figure enters the room and your fairy lights light up Vikks face.

“I just came to see if you’re okay? It’s just, I could hear you crying from the next room?” He said, worry tracing his slightly drunken voice.

“Yeah, yeah, you know, hormones and that!” You laughed, trying to hide the fact you were so obviously lying.

“Oh, okay, as long as you’re sure! You know I’m just next door if you need me. But so is Simon, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind looking after you…” he said smiling and closing the door behind him.

You laid back down and pondered on what to do. You got up and grabbed your fluffy dressing gown and wrapped it round you. You opened your door quietly and carefully found your way in the dark to Simons door. You sniffed quietly and tried to fan your face to cool yourself down before going in.

“y/n?” Simons voice called from his room. Shit, you thought. Light footsteps started coming towards the door. The door opened and there Simon was. Stood in the same tracksuit bottoms as you with no shirt on. You looked up at his face and smiled. You were sure the tear stains and the red cheeks would give away to him that you had been crying. “Come here, little one,” he said pulling you to his chest and giving you a hug, “what’s wrong?”.

“I love someone so much” you said, muffled by his chest.

“Why didn’t you tell me? Who is it?” He said pulling you away from him, but pulling you into his room and shutting the door behind you. “I bet it’s JJ!” He said making you laugh, “oh come on! You totally fancy him!”, he sat down on his bed and so you sat opposite him.

“No it’s not!” You laughed, looking up at him. He looked at you with a questioning look, as if to say ‘who then?’. “Well, Simon, its you!” You said, looking to him again to check for some kind of reaction.

“Are you serious?” He said sitting up and closer to you, making you nervous.

“Pretty sure…” you said, subtly moving closer.

“How long have you..?” He said, trying to move subtly closer but by then your knees were touching each other’s

“A while…” you said putting your hand on Simons.

He picked up your hand and pulled you gently towards him. You sat up onto your knees and wrapped your arms around his neck. Simon placed one hand on your waist and one on your thigh, bringing you closer into him. Foreheads touching, Simon moved in uncertain, waiting for you to accept. You moved forward slowly and gently pressed your lips against Simon’s. The kiss started off slow, gradually got more passionate as your hands roamed his body. His hand on your thigh moved carefully up and planting a firm grip on your ass. His other hand trailed down and he lifted you up gently, sitting you onto his lap. His hands moved back up to your waist and tried to pull you closer again. However, you pulled away, letting go of his hair and putting your hands onto his cheeks.

“Do you like me, Simon?” You said pressing your noses together.

“Yes, of course, y/n. And I have for a while.” He pulled you down on top of him and cuddled himself around you. “Be mine, y/n?”

“Forever.” You said, pulling his arms around you tighter and closing your eyes.

Preference #4: He Comes Home Angry (Ashton)

The sound of the door slamming shut echoed throughout the house, making you jump. You moved the finished pasta off the stove, took off your apron and made your way into the lounge, where you saw almost exactly what you had expected.
Ash sat on the sofa, his knee jiggling up and down, his face buried into his hands out of pure frustration.
“I’m so sorry, baby,” you sighed, making your way over, sitting beside him, and beginning to attentively and tenderly stroke his hair.
You weren’t surprised he was in this state. In all honesty, you had been expecting it.
To say Ashton was upset was an understatement. He was devastated. He wasn’t necessarily angry at the fans for listening to it - he understood that they were excited, and had been waiting for a long time. He was also only mildly upset with the fans who decided to spread the links.

It was more the fact of all the work he had put in to the album, and it felt as though it had all been thrown in his face. He felt as though nobody understood all the effort and emotional energy that went into making something that meant so much to him.

Yes, he understood it was only two snippets. He understood it could have been a lot worse - an entire draft of a song that was nearly finished, for example. Yes, himself and the other boys often joked about leaking the album, and initially that’s what he thought it was. After all, it was only two extremely short demos. But when he saw the look on his brothers’ faces, filled with disappointment, he knew it must have been someone else.

The gentle touch of your fingers startled him, bringing him out of his thoughts. His fists clenched ever so slightly, in absolute vexation.

“Don’t touch me,” he growled almost inaudibly, the words rumbling in his throat.

“What did you say, Ash?” you asked gently, having completely missed what he said.

He stood quickly, and moved away from you.

“I… Um, I just want to be here for you? I can give you space if that’s what you’d… like, prefer,” you mumbled sheepishly, feeling absolutely perplexed at the way he was behaving towards you.

“I know it was you who leaked the demos,” he accused, looking at you with fire in his eyes.

You were completely taken aback.

“Of course I didn’t, Ash! Why the hell do you think I’d ever even think of doing that?” you tried to defend yourself, but it seemed hopeless to you. For some obscure, unknown reason, Ashton seemed set on delegating the blame to you.

“Oh, please,” he scoffed, rolling his eyes at your words. “You’re the only one who was given them! Do you really think anyone who worked and put all that time and effort into them would ever even dream of doing that?”

You bit your lip, feeling anger beginning to bubble away inside you. You took a moment to compose yourself; the last thing you wanted was for this to escalate.

“And do you honestly think I’d do something so disrespectful to the man I’m in love with? Something that I knew would hurt you?” you shot back. It sounded pathetic, but a part of you already wanted to cry at the thought of Ashton thinking so lowly of you.

“I never thought you would, but it looks like you have,” he challenged. The look of resentment replacing the look of sheer, unadulterated love he usually had made your heart feel heavy.

What could you do to make him see sense? Yes, you had heard the demos, but you would never do something like that to him. Not when you knew how much this new album meant to him and the guys.

“Ash, no… I swear, the last thing I’d ever want is to hurt you. I love you, you know that… please believe me,” you pleaded with him.

“Y'know, I don’t think this is gonna work between us. I trusted you, more than anyone else I’d ever met. I just need space,” he enunciated, trying and failing at keeping his voice steady and void of emotions.

You watched him slip his feet into his shoes and shrug his jacket back over his shoulders. The tears building in your eyes made your vision blurry.

“Baby, please, don’t leave me. Please. I would never lie to you! You know that… Please don’t do this,” you whimpered, reaching out to touch him, desperate to keep him close to you. But even though he was so close to you physically, he felt more than a million miles out of your reach.

Your fingertips just managed to skim over the side of his cheek, and he flinched away from you, once again. His face was damp with tears of his own.

Without a further glance in your direction, he walked out of the door, letting it close with a slam similar to the one he entered with; except this felt so much more poignant. It felt final.

You broke into sobs, wanting nothing more than to hold him close to you, to have him believe you, to have him tell you that he loved you.

Having completely lost your appetite, you threw the stone-cold pasta into the bin beside you, and dragged yourself up the stairs to your bedroom. You looked at the king size bed, seeing a few of Ash’s recently worn shirts laying there. Without a second thought, you slipped out of your own clothes and straight into one, craving his presence, wanting him near you in any way possible. You brought the fabric up to your tear stained face and inhaled his scent, numbing the sharp pains in your heart if only slightly.

Not even thinking of going through your normal nighttime routine, you slid between the sheets of the bed, curling up on his side of the bed, cuddling the duvet closer to you.


Your eyes opened slowly, the dried tears on your face making your eyelashes tick together ever so slightly. Ash hovered above you, carefully guiding a make-up remover wipe along your face.

He looked at you with an expression of pure guilt.

“I’m sorry, baby. I know it wasn’t you. I do trust you. I was just… upset, and that’s no excuse, I know. Please forgive me. I love you so much,” he whispered, a few tears spilling out from his eyes.

You threaded your hands delicately into his hair, feeling a sense of calm in the way he nuzzled closer to your touch instead of recoiling from you.

“I know. Let me be there for you, Ash,” you mumbled, your eyes flickering across every feature of his face. He nodded, pressing a chaste, tender kiss to your lips.

“I’m so sorry, love,” he croaked, voice cracking with emotion he had been depriving himself of feeling earlier.

“Kiss me,” you murmured into the dimly lit room, your gaze now fixed firmly on his hazel eyes. You rubbed your thumb soothingly across his blotchy cheek, guiding him towards your lips.

Ash leaned forwards, pressing his lips to yours, letting out a hushed moan at being close to you again. You whimpered into the kiss, wrapping your legs around his waist, tightening your grip in his hair, as his hands began to trail along your body. The kiss became ever more desperate, and even as you pulled apart to gasp for air, he pressed his forehead to yours, starting intensely into your eyes.

“It’s been so long since I’ve felt this close to you, love,” he breathed. “I’m sorry we’ve not been spending much time together lately. I’ve just been so busy… won’t happen again, baby…” and within an instant his lips were back on yours, his hands moving further south to grip your ass gently, never losing the sense of urgency between the pair of you.

“I love you,” you gasped into his mouth between kisses.

Ash didn’t respond, but you felt his smile against your skin.

The pair of you would be just fine.


AN: lmao oops this almost turned into smut, hope you enjoyed this one!

send some requests… y'know. if you’ve got any.

anonymous asked:

Hi - I love it when you come up with creative everyday life situations for Tom. Let me tell you, you never fail to elicit a giggle :) Inspired by the anon who asked you about breakfast cam scribblings, I wanted to ask, what you imagine what Tom's nighttime routine is. I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas. They're always so amusing! But only, of course, if you have time ;)

Hi there!

Thank you!  I have an over-active imagination and I was taught to share.  So.  Here we are.  :)

Righto, Nighttime Routine Tom…

I would guess that he doesn’t really have anything set that he repeats every night except for maybe stripping down to his birthday suit.  He doesn’t like to make plans, he doesn’t seem like the kind of person who needs repetition of a series of actions to make himself feel comfortable.  And at the sake of stereotyping, I think it’s safe to say that men don’t do much in the way of skin care or things of that nature before hitting the hay; so aside from brushing the gold mine in his mouth, I doubt he is spending a lot of time removing make up and cleansing and moisturizing and applying eye cream and on and on.  But who knows, maybe he does.  It’s kind of fun to imagine him sitting around with a mud mask and cucumbers on his eyes and a towel wrapped around his head so the hair treatment can work its magic.  I wish I could draw that!

If he’s been on set, maybe showering and just falling into bed with a bit of script review for the next day.

If he’s at home, some reading. (this is basically just an excuse for me to post a gif of those porny bookshelves of his…)

I have a bad habit, which I am working on breaking, of snacking in bed.  Maybe his sheets have biscuit crumbs here and there…

And now that I’m thinking about bedtime snacking with SAF, I’m gonna stop.  

Wedding Dance1

A/N:  It’s been a while since we wrote something together, but we hope you enjoy this.  We think it’s going to be about 5 parts long.  This part is all Harry fluff.  Enjoy!

It’s already dark outside, but the chilly summer breeze feels comfortable. It had been a warm day, not hot like the days in late August usually are – a perfect day for a wedding. I want such a glorious day for my own wedding. The sun shone high in the sky during the day, and now the stars and the moon are twinkling with fairy lights.

I’m sitting in my chair, my place card in front of me in case I forget my name. Giggling at my own joke, I play with the white card which tells me my name in raised gold letters. My other hand rests on the stem of my wine glass. It’s nearly midnight. I promised myself I could leave at midnight, go upstairs to my room and sleep, falling onto the bed while still in my dress without removing make up. Who cares? I am alone here, so nobody will see me in the morning. My plan is to leave early tomorrow, so maybe I will be able to escape the parents of the bride. I crave my flat, a warm bath with a glass of wine, and listening to my favourite records. Yes, my flat is tiny, so I can hear the record player in my bathroom. Though my cozy home is small I could never relinquish the luxury of a bathtub. I sigh yearningly as I think of my empty flat.

The 5 Make Up Items You Need If You’re Going To Cry In The Liberal Arts Bathroom at 10:45am

– From Personal Experience 

  1. Foundation/Cover-Up/Concealer: This one is super obvious, you’re gonna be rubbing at your eyes a little and probably smearing your lipstick and unless you want to carry around make-up remover (the wipes on the bottle, it leaks) then you’re gonna want something to make it look like you didn’t just smear your make-up around your hands – you can have something to cover it up with.
  2. Eye Shadow (the color you’re already wearing): Or, if you worked really hard on your eye shadow and used like 4 different colors, the base color works best for rubbing on your index finger with your trembling hands while the clock ticks down because you only have like 10 minutes to get to your class. If you used a massive fucking thing, take the smallest color that sorta kinda matches what you’re wearing because who cares anyway.
  3. Eyeliner: Shit smudges a lot. Bring more, also it’ll cover up when the mascara inevitably smears around your eyes making you look like Taylor Momsen but like a cheap knock-off version who definitely cried in a bathroom before noon on a Thursday.
  4. A General Sense of Acceptance: This is your life now. You’re crying in the bathroom, you’re that person now. Accept it. Accept that you spent all that time getting ready in the morning and now it’s ruined but you’re still gonna do it again tomorrow. Even if you know you’ll cry again. (Available at Sephora for $29.99)
  5. Four Deep Breaths: Because you’re gonna be okay. (Or a spritz of perfume, to hide the stench of depression. Either is okay.)
