nothing looked that great

honestly? I only wear pretty makeup so other women will like it. I LOVE seeing pretty makeup on women, it is beautiful. It’s like art. And a lot of times only other women truly appreciate that art. Idgaf what guys think of my makeup, it’s not for them. A guy saying “You’re pretty” gives me nothing. A woman saying “Your makeup looks great!” gives me a happiness/confidence boost for days. The other day my coworker said that she looked at me during a meeting and I turned my head just right and she saw my highlight pop and said it was like *makes angel singing noise* and was beautiful. I almost cried. 

I know that makeup has historically been used to attract the male gaze but really, with the advent of makeup videos and makeup ‘culture’ it’s not even about that anymore. It’s about practicing a skill and getting good at it and showing it off to other practitioners of that skill. Like I said, it’s like art.

Until Death Do Us Part

Stereotypical

Bucky Barnes x reader AU (short series) 

Notes: swearing, flirting, mentions of child abuse and alcoholism (past), none other yet

Summary: As a PA/secretary, you are all too familiar with the fantasies nearly all men share: banging their hot assistant. Former jobs haven’t worked out for you for that exact reason, and now starting out at a new company, as the secretary for the CEO of the hottest modelling agency in the country, you’re hoping this one will be different. But after meeting your new boss, Mr J.B. Barnes, you’re not so sure if it will be. Then again, maybe Mr Barnes is not as stereotypical as you think he is.   

A/N: Hi guys! This is a little something I’ve been working on lately. It’s only gonna be a few parts and I hope you enjoy it! 

“Whoa, hey there doll, what’s the rush?”

Quickly checking if you hadn’t dropped anything, to avoid any more embarrassment on the first day on your new job, you looked up at the man you’d just crashed (face-planted) into.

Why I strongly encourage witches to try recycling a book instead of buying a blank journal

So my grimoire is a recycled book with the pages either painted over with gesso or various matte acrylic colors. It’s one big hot mess….and I LOVE it.

The reason I did this was simple. In previous years (especially early stages) I kept changing my grimoire because it no longer “fit” my mental aesthetic for what a witch’s grimoire should look like…or whatever you want to call it.

And also…..because I kept “messing up”

Y'all know what I’m talking about. I know you do.

I had all these journals that I bought or made and they all had these stark white pages and I constantly feared messing things up/ruining it/ having to start over ect. And that’s what happened. I kept “messing up” and it pissed me off.

But when my pages are already “messed up” (painted over) there’s no fear. If I don’t like it, I paint over , paste over or even occasionally completely rip out the page. And if there’s something on the back I want to keep, I paste it in a new blank spot, or use it to paste over another spot I’m no longer happy with.

It looks like my grimoire doesn’t have much truthfully, but this bitch as been through a LOT 😂

Fellow witches, and baby witches especially, I encourage you to try recycling a book for your grimoire if you keep getting stuck. OR at the very least, use these methods in your current grimoire. “Mess it up” before hand so you can’t ACTUALLLY mess it up. The pahe is already stained. Just add in to the mess.

Remember, this won’t be your last and only grimoire. Each time I started a new one (I think I maybe finished 1 or 2 small ones?) I transfer over the workings that’ve worked for me in the past. Currently that’s all that I have. And in comparison to the 300 some odd pages my book is currently made from? It looks like NOTHING. And that’s great because all the more room for me to keep shaping myself and my craft and add more stuff!

Let your grimoire be a place of exploration and mistakes.
I promise you it’s okay :)

Things The Signs Have Said That Break My Heart
  • Aries: Was I ever anything more than a sad kid? I thought the drugs would help, but they just make you sadder and a little deader. I really tried my best, but I don't think there's much use anymore. Nobody cared then, and nobody cares now.
  • Taurus: I'm sorry, but I fell in love with you. I watch you move and I'm captivated. The world slows down just a little bit when I look at you. I wanna kiss your long neck, and run my fingers through your curly hair. I wanna listen to you talk for hours about old movies and bad music. I wanna hear every word that you have to say. But I can't, because you're in love with someone else
  • Gemini: I dreamed so much as a little kid. All those dreams are dead know. The world has a lot of fun killing little girls dreams.
  • Cancer: Please don't go! Stay! Stay! I need you to stay! No one ever stays.
  • Leo: I used to be special. Everyone thought I was going to be this amazing person. They thought I would do great things, but look at me. I'm nothing. If I was anything, it would be a failure.
  • Virgo: She just left. She didn't say anything. In one simple second, all the love and laughter that we had, was ripped from both of us. She just decided she did't feel like loving me anymore.
  • Libra: It's all gone. Any hope that I had is gone.
  • Scorpio: Do you think that if I get prettier, he might look at me like he used to? Maybe he'll love me again.
  • Sagittarius: The whole world is at my fingertips, they say, but I can't seem to ever grab it.
  • Capricorn: I could tell she didn't love me anymore. She would smile, but in her eyes I could see the pity and slight disgust she had for me. I tried to stop loving her, but I couldn't. I felt pathetic, like I was stood up. But this time I couldn't just go home and forget about it the next day. She was, and still is, my everything.
  • Aquarius: I don't want to feel this anymore. I don't want to be trapped in my mind. I want to live again. I just want to see the light one more time.
  • Pisces: Could you just tell me you love me? You don't have to mean it. I just want, for a second, to feel loved.

listen idc if this is an unpopular opinion but every cis person who’s ever gotten offended when someone asked for their pronouns owes me and every other trans person $500

A Little Too Long

Warning: Nothing??

It’s been almost a year since you’ve been on a date. When Steve offers to take you out just to make you feel better, you don’t realize just what this might stir up for the two of you.

A/N: I wrote this for @rileyloves5 as she needs some cheering up, and Steve fluff is always a guarantee.


“I need some good places for tonight.” Buck looks up from his phone as he comes into the living room where you and the team are strewn about, playing on your phones, reading the paper, watching a random TV movie. You’re in one of the chairs legs over the armrest, back against the other.

“Depends what do you have in mind.” Tony looks up from his paper.

“I think I want to, you know, woo her.” Buck shrugs.

Newt’s eyes nearly fall out of his head when you walk out of the bedroom with Queenie. You don’t notice the red blush winding up his cheeks and filling his entire face, and he’s grateful for Queenie’s conversation with you. He can barely tear his eyes from the crimson number you slipped into, from the way the intricate beading wraps around you to the frills that swish with every swaying step you take. Crimson gloves run from your hands to your elbows, hiding more skin than that dress does. He gulps when he looks at the hem drifting only to the middle of your thighs.

Blinking, he pinches his arm. Queenie giggles at his face when he feels her root around his mind. Forcing his gaze from you, he looks at her, more subtle in her flowing olive dress. It hangs off her shoulders with thin straps, dipping in the most perfect places, gems shining on the left side of the chest and cascading down to her hip bone.

She cocks an eyebrow. “Like what you see, honey?”

It takes Newt a moment to form a sentence when you turn your beautiful eyes on him. “You’re radiant.”

“Just me?” Queenie purses her lips to hide her mischievous smile.

Newt’s heart hammers when he looks at you. Not only does the dress expose your collarbones, but it shows off your shoulders, too, letting the heavy crimson earrings Queenie lent you graze the skin usually hidden by your normal outfits. His eyes drift from there to your lips, plump, turned a vivid red by Queenie’s makeup, completely kissable.

“You are breathtaking, as always.” Newt says, swallowing and forcing as natural a smile he can create to his face.

Strip Magic. Stephen Strange.

Request:  Hi Lu, first of all I love your work! Second could you right a Doctor Strange x reader smut in which the reader, after the events in Hong Kong, helps Strange to continue his training (they have some sort of feelings for each other) and they are playing a game where for every spell Strange can’t cast he has to take one of his clothes off. Also would you mind answer privately thanks!

Triggers: Smut. Minor angst because Reader is Self-Conscious. Dirty talk.

You hummed as you went through the books, the cloak supporting you in the air. “Maybe something a bit more tricky.” You muttered to yourself.

“What are you two doing?” Stephen asked, taking in the sight of you. You were casually sitting in the air while the cloak made a seat below you.

“Looking for some more spells for you to try out. C'mon. You’re the one that wanted help, Strange,” You huffed out, before smirking. “Unless you think you can’t actually do some of these? If not, it’s okay to be weak.”

Stephen’s eyebrow twitched and he sighed. “Fine but get down from there. You’ll get hurt, Y/N,” He called out.

A quick update: Mummy’s surgery on Monday went smoothly, the cancer has not spread beyond the breast, and she is recovering well! :) She’ll be at the hospital for a few days still. Soon we’ll get the details regarding future chemo treatments but for now mummy’s elated the surgery part is over, she’s been absolutely terrified of it!

I took a pic of her bedside table at the ward today, all the nurses said how sweet the baby squirrel plushie I got for her was, awww. :) It’s soft and cuddly, mum adores it and keeps it close at all times. She says it reminds her of me (I also remind her of a duckie, a mouse, a baby chick, etc, you know how mums are, hehe). :) And dad brings her the newspaper every day because she loves crossword puzzles, they’re part of her morning routine and make the stay at the hospital a little more like home.

Thank you from all of us for all the messages and well wishes I received on tumblr! ♥

stole this binches look……..
