Last Song I Listened To: “Unnatural” from the Reflux album by King Toad (It’s the first song in this clip)
Last Movie I Saw: Kara no Kyoukai: Remaining Sense of Pain
Favorite color: @nckclrk‘s eyes. I always put this answer and I know it always sounds twee and cheesy. BUT they have an unusual color of hazel eyes that look light green, dark green, blue with light brown stripes, traditionally hazel (light brown and light green) depending on the lighting and the color of their clothing. They have Mystic Eyes of Miya Swoonification. So it really sucks when I have a dissociative episode and can’t raise my head to look at them.
Top 3 Shows: Game of Thrones, 30 Rock, and Kara no Kyoukai
Top 3 Characters:
Aozaki Touko (Kara no Kyoukai), Balalaika (Black Lagoon), and Cu Chulainn (Fate Series.) I kinda feel the need to give Sinbad an honorable mention what with the @sindria-no-bouken sideblog and all. He’s definitely in my top 10.
Top 3 Ships:
Ryougi Shiki x Mikiya Kokutou from Kara no Kyoukai, Rock & Revy from Black Lagoon, Nagisa Kaworu x Ikari Shinji from Rebuild of Evangelion.
RANDOM BONUS: The most fabulous strategy for sneaking into your boyfriend’s palace ever. I’m not joking. This is literally how Mastani snuck into Bajirao’s palace when his Brahmin caste) mother turned her away for being Muslim: blend in with the dancers and steal the show.
I made sun infused oils today. It’s basically just like tincturing but instead using oil in place of alcohol. I call this oil my Happy Mellow Blend. It’s made with pure organic coconut oil with herbs like chamomile, lavender, dandelion, hawthorne, peach flower, mint, spearmint, orange blossom, lemon grass, rose buds, rose leaf, and my other “secret” herbs ;) I also add pure raw local honey and fresh orange peel to the oil as well. Not to mention I’ve added my special amethyst, tiger eye, rose quartz, and clear quartz stones to each jar to add energy & vibrations to the oil. Now I just have to let the Sun do his thing an infuse everything for the next 2 weeks ^_^
DO YOU SEE THIS SHIT
coconut oil. Raw pure unrefined coconut oil. And you need this in your life. I’ve used this for mending my severely damaged hair, fading self harm scars, healing fresh tattoos, softening dry skin, healing and closing my ears after having them stretched for two years, clearing up my face, practically curing my eczema on my arms that I was insecure about, and many other things. It’s light and clean and has an endless number of uses. It start as a firm butter like texture, and instantly turns to a liquid when you rub it between your palms, spreads evenly, and smells lovely. It’s vegan friendly and not tested on animals. Go go go get some ☺️
Chocolate: 1 cup raw coconut oil, warmed to liquid 1 cup raw cacao powder ½ cup raw coconut nectar or agave nectar a pinch sea salt
Peanut Butter: ¾ cup raw peanut butter (or unsweetened pb if you are not concerned with being raw) 2 Tbsp raw coconut nectar
Caramel: 10 medjool dates 2 Tbsp raw coconut butter or macadamia butter (raw almond butter will also work) 3 Tbsp raw coconut nectar or agave nectar 1 tsp maple extract 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract 1 Tbsp coconut oil ¼ tsp fleur de sel ¼ cup filtered water (or more if too thick, add an additional Tbsp at a time)
The best thing to do is give them a warm bath! Never ever pick or pull at shed, this can cause damage to the scales underneath, bleeding or wounds. Things like Shed-Ez or other don’t always work, and can be pricey.
What about retaining shed on tail, toes or spikes? (This also applies to the rest of the body)
You can do a few things, while in a warm bath you can use a very soft toothbrush and move it in circles to help get the shed off, or gently move the pad of your finger back and forth to ease it off as well. You can also use PURE cocoa butter and put that on the shed, it will soften it and help it come off. (More details below!)
There is some severe retaining shed from a few sheds ago, help!
The best thing to do in this case, especially if baths aren’t working, is use the Pure Cocoa Butter or Pure Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil. Both of these will have the same effect on a shed. Lightly coat the area and let it sit for at least an hour, but it would be better to do it for longer if possible. When it’s done sitting, gently wipe it off with a very soft cloth and give a warm bath again. Try and make the water 80-90 degrees f, and then use the soft toothbrush or finger movements to work off the shed. Continue these procedures until all the old shed is off.
While looking for some online and I came across a company named Kopari. Kopari apparently is a beauty cream made from coconut oil..
$34USD for 7.oz??? This is cocaine prices. Do you people not know you can get a jar of coconut oil for $6. A JAR So i felt like maybe I was overreacting a jumping to conclusions. Maybe its more than coconut… PEOPLE, THIS IS JUST COCONUT OIL!
Thats right… $8.60 PER POUND for pure coconut oil. if we say there are 16oz in 1lb, thats $0.54 an ounce. So at the sizes offered we are talking about $3.75…. Kapri is up selling this stuff 900%!
@hannahpixiesnow: Gonna do a lil review on ❤️www.living-light-blog.tumblr.com❤️ later about cruelty free/natural beauty alternatives me and @anastasiapepsitasou dig seeing as a lot of people tend to ask. I’ve used pure coconut oil for a few months and my skin is BOOM now. It was terrible about a year ago. Photo for evidence. ^^^. Oh and I’m never gonna wax my eyebrows cos I love being a bush baby so y'all just gonna have to deal. ❤️🌞
I’m watching a series of vegan cooking videos on youtube and while they are interesting i think i finally nailed down why the organic granola health food aesthetic bothers me, at least one reason.
its because there is no possible way that anybody could have made these cookies or whatever before widespread colonialism, imperialism, industrialization, etc. And that’s true of a lot of our food– but most of our food doesn’t claim itself to be “better for you” or “back to nature” or somehow more wholesome by default.
it would be highly impossible for somebody to get all of these ingredients together, to mix them together, to think to mix them together while avoiding certain other ingredients, before an age of taking globalization for granted. You couldn’t build a dish like this out of what you could trade within a 20 mile radius, anywhere on earth. You couldn’t get this specific assemblage of tapioca flour, variety of nuts, pure cane sugar, quinoa, coconut oil + milk, banana, organic bread flour, etc. Meanwhile much of it is highly processed while claiming to be less processed and more ‘healthy’ than nonvegan foods.
Almost everywhere in the world, a plant-based diet is associated with some measure of poverty. With eating a very limited number of nutrition-poor foods every day because nothing else is available. And in the west that’s simultaneously associated with health (diet culture, blaming people’s health and body size on the food available to them they can afford) yet dreaded because it’s dull and boring and a mark of being poor etc. The very first thing people suggest those struggling with food security is “honey :) have you tried rice and beans :) :)” yet they will go out of their way to avoid that reality of “veganism” in much of the world is rice and beans. They will spend tons of middle class money to diversify their diet in a purposefully wasteful way that has never been seen before as natural behavior on earth. Meanwhile here in the USA at least we take for granted the variety of things in our grocery stores as if its the normal state of the world, as if the reasons we have such choice about what to eat isn’t even a big deal.
Like there are plenty of people who are vegan and also get this and are champs at balancing how unnatural their cuisine is and what actually is available + affordable to eat without blowing ridiculous money. But there are also plenty of people who don’t and are like “I avoid this problem by eating locally sourced produce only :) :)” meanwhile they are either lying or that produce is being grown in a rooftop greenhouse for a fortune because, surprise, bananas, almonds, coconuts, eggplants, don’t grow here and there’s no fresh lettuce in winter. That they’re available to us at all isn’t natural and isn’t something to be glossed over.
Kelly Rowland Poses Nude For Elle Magazine (Shot By Lance Gross)
Kelly Rowland or Kelly Glowland? Because the mom-to-be is giving off glowing, ethereal pregnant queen goddess tease in Elle magazine!
With one hand covering her growing boobs and another holding her baby bump, Kelly takes part in the tradition of pregnant celebrity moms posing nude in her latest photo spread. The image was captured by actor and celebrity photographer Lance Gross, and also includes a few clothed shots as well, where Kelz looks just as gorgeous in a tuxedo and dresses, as she does in the buff.
For the interview portion of the feature, Kelly gushes about beginning her journey as a new mom (she’s due in a couple of weeks) and how she plans to raise her son while balancing her career. She also shares the secret behind her enviable glow (hint: cocoa butter on deck!), the yummy treats she’s been craving, and not understanding why nude pregnancy shots are so frowned upon.
Peep the highlights:
On what she looks forward most to about motherhood:
I can’t wait until he gets here. I just have a couple more weeks. I’m excited to bring a child into the world, and sharing that experience with my husband is probably the most beautiful part.
I love cherry pie and chocolate ice cream with peanut butter mixed in it. And I had a week straight where I was obsessed with nachos.
On her pregnancy beauty regimen:
I’ve switched out anything with harsh chemicals. I use nothing but shea butter, pure cocoa butter and coconut oil. It’s amazing how all of those things work so well for my skin. I’m going to continue to just use those after the baby gets here.
On the kind of celebrity mom she plans on being:
I just plan to play it by ear. Everybody has their normal. And sometimes, award shows are a part of that. I have girlfriends who have that experience, and they’ll say ‘You know, I just really didn’t want to be without my child today.’ And it’s just that simple. It’s about finding your normal, whatever that may be.
On posing nude:
Some pregnant women get flack for nude photos. Why was it important to you to include those in the shoot? I don’t know why they would get flack. It’s really—I won’t say amazing—it’s Godmazing [laughs] watching your body carry a human. I took a birthing class and I was amazed by all the things this woman was saying to me about birthing and what the body does naturally. Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate that? The body should be celebrated.
On balancing being a mom, a wife and an entertainer:
I watch Diana Ross and Donna Summer and all these women—they’ve managed to do it all. I think ‘What makes me different? I can definitely do it.’ And this is something I’ve wanted. I’ve been talking about babies since last year. I believe I spoke it into existence during a conversation with my friend, and I feel like I became pregnant overnight! And she said all we need is a community of strong people around us, and we rely on each other and our families.
On rumors she’ll be playing Donna Summer in upcoming biopic:
All these rumors! I was just with my glam squad, we were having fun and we saw this beautiful picture of a Donna Summer record. I was like ‘let’s try to do this look!’ I love Donna Summer. I love how she’s this sex goddess, and she’s so beautiful and powerful onstage. So we mocked up a cover and I posted a picture. That’s all it was! But it would be an amazing opportunity to play her.
