pale blues

I can associate both The Baker on The First Floor and H & H Roman Company with pastel colors so much for some reason. I think it’s because both give off very pure, sweet, pastel vibes from it’s aesthetic and characters. I don’t know about all of you, but I prefer to think of The Baker on The First Floor as pastel yellow and pink and purple colors while H & H Roman Company as mostly pastel (especially pale pastel) blues. 

The Wiccan’s Glossary

Amazonite is sometimes called ‘The Lucky Hope Stone’ as it aids in good luck aimed towards your hopes. Affirmation: “I can achieve anything I set my mind to.” It soothes and calms the soul, builds personal character and strength, and brings inner balance as well as balance in life. It is a lovely stone of teals and pale blues, appealing to the eye in both rough and polished form. It has a calming aura and encourages a state of deep ataraxia.

Amazonite is a great stone for sufferers of anxiety and people in stressful situations.

xiumin; snow
festive season drabbles + 4

Minseok is standing still about a foot deep in snow; hands shoved into the warmth of his pockets, eyes trained on you as you make your way downstairs. Ice made your feet slip from under you on occasion, though you continued toward him. Minseok lets out a chuckle as you steady yourself.

“Can you help me instead of laughing at me?” You call out, stepping into the footprints that he’d left for you. Instantly the feeling of the snow sinking into your boots makes you cringe, and Minseok stretches his arm out to take yours. He pulls you forward a few steps. The sun shines brightly above and is shielded only by the occasional stretch of cloud; it’s backdrop being a number of pale oranges, pinks, and blues, the evening beginning to sink in.

“You’re just that funny!” He shouts, a bright smile gracing his features as he throws his arms up in an exclamation, shrugging his shoulders at the same time. His hair is fluffy, a light brown shade, flattened cutely under the soft red wool of a beanie you’d knitted last Christmas. Though it resembled more of a lump of wool, he wore it with pride regardless. He looks into your eyes blissfully, taking in their color and the way they shine in the afternoon sun, watching how your lips tremble from the cold; to him, you are most beautiful up close.

“I’ll give you something to laugh at.” You say as he chuckles, watching you bend down to form snow into a ball between your palms. He gets only a few seconds to put as much distance as possible between the two of you before you pelt the snow, aiming for his head. It hits him squarely between the shoulders instead, and it is your turn to chuckle as he squeals.

“Some went down my shirt!”

“Serves you right Minseok.”
