Hi! Um… short answer, yes I do! 

Unnecessary Long Answer: 

Ichiruki has always been the main canon-material pairing in BLEACH for me, but as BLEACH was an action genre, I was very happy it didn’t get into any romance that would get in the way of the series. That’s one of the reasons I didn’t like Orihime’s position in the franchise, because that’s all she was demoted to in the end. 

Ichigo and Rukia had amazing chemistry in the first and best arc of BLEACH. But when the Hueco Mundo arc came around, Kubo kinda destroyed Rukia’s personality. She did hit Ichigo now and then in the first arc when he’d make fun of her, not for just the sake of beating Ichigo up. Ichigo was extremely depressed, injured, and misinformed about the hollow attack. She shows up and beats the crap out of him. She brings him to his senses, but after the Hueco Mundo arc, Kubo butchered Rukia’s caring side towards Ichigo, which I was extremely unhappy about. You’d think considered Kaien’s death she’s be far more caring and considerate…… but no. Just down the gutter. ESPECIALLY when Rukia forced Ichigo to apologize to Orihime. That was not acceptable. Orihime and Chad ran into the fight of their own will, its not Ichigo’s fault they got hurt and he should not take blame for that. Orihime did try to reason with Ichigo that she ran in of her own accord and that he shouldn’t have to be there to protect her all the time. This set up the whole gary-sue trope for Ichigo, and ever since then he was the only one to ever actually progress the BLEACH series and things just got sickeningly repetitive. 

Now…I apologize if I’m side tracking but I have to talk about my stance on these pairings again: 

Ichihime: 

….Orihime was shown to have a crush on Ichigo throughout the entire manga, but never had any real reason or explanation behind it. 

Seriously? Why????? She literally would give up her life for a mere highschool crush.. who does that? Its been stated she didn’t develop a crush for Ichigo until she saw him in Highschool. She stalks him and constantly gets in his way. 

Ichigo has never once shown any interest in her at all, he’s brushed her off and ignored her everytime she approached him, and yet Kubo has the audacity to co-author a book and release it about Ichigo saying he knew about Orihime’s crush this entire time and even asks her out? I’ve never heard something so ridiculous in my entire life. 

I saw a video released recently about one of the BLEACH editors saying Orihime was the heroine of the series which is entirely false. Out of the entire series (besides filler arcs), Orihime has only defeated ONE enemy. Which was a weakling hollow in the first arc. That’s literally it. I don’t think heroines are defined by the amount of people they’ve healed, but regarding that, her healing abilities could be replaced easily by Hachigen or Unohana. Hachigen told her she had the ability to bring things back to life without needing a body, and yet her power couldn’t even HEAL a body like Ichigo’s in the Ulquiorra fight. She’s no heroine. She was demoted to a side-character. 

Back to her crush on Ichigo, remember the ONE time she actually defeated an enemy? That was for TATSUKI. TATSUKI WAS THE ONE WHO AWOKE HER POWER, AND THAT’S WHEN ORIHIME GAINED INDEPENDENCE TO FIGHT. But when going to rescue Rukia, she was really only there to “protect” Ichigo for no real reason as to why besides her crush that she doesn’t even know if its requited. 

Orihime had the ability to reverse time. She was given many opportunities to actually make a difference in the series that only she could make. But none were taken. She didn’t reverse the Hougyoku, she couldn’t stop Tsukishima, and despite having “god like powers” her power does jack-shit to the soul kings. As to how she wasn’t killed in the Yhwach vs Ichigo battle, and as to why Ichigo and CO. even let her come along on this mission will forever be a mystery to me. She’s the weakest character out of the original team of 5, by all means, she should have been killed. Even Renji knew she wasn’t a warrior, so why was she there? Her only significance in the final battle was fixing Yoruichi’s arm, that’s it. (and giving birth to Yhwach Jr. but that’s a cluster fuck to analyze for another time) 

Orihime was reduced to pure fanservice waifu-material. Her breasts were 4X the size of her head in the quincy arc, and her power has been completely useless overall the entire series, especially if others can replicate her abilities to an even better extent than her own. (Like Hachigen.) 

The fact that there’s no soul king and Ichigo wasn’t allowed at home due to his power issues, and the fact that they’re even allowed to have children in the world of the living, this is the most baffling, false, and culture shocking ending to a series I have ever seen. I feel like this ending is legit a dream world that Ichigo is having as the new soul king considering this ending is literally not possible reflecting on all the information we’ve been given this past arc. Yikes. 

RenRuki: 

“Knowing eachother for a long time” is weird in itself considering time passes differently in Soul Society than in the human world… which Kubo seems to have forgotten. As to why they’d have a child that is somehow the same-looking age as Kazui perhaps around the same time as Ichigo and Orihime is a bundle of confusion already. But these two didn’t talk for 40 years, then Renji shows up and beats her up and slices her, threatening to KILL her, where URYU HAS TO STEP IN. HOW BAD DOES THAT LOOK WHEN A QUINCY STEPS IN-BETWEEN A SHINIGAMI QUARREL. Renji and Rukia have had absolutely zero romantic interest the entire series. The only one time Renji ever seems to actually like her was when they were children. But RenRuki has never had any one-sided love confessions like Orihime. THis is the least developed pairing out of the two. 

(and also for Orihime to make Rukia a wedding veil out of strawberry flowers… REALLY? I MEAN…. no wonder there’s Ichiruki/Ishihime cheating AU’s going around right now! I mean can you imagine Renji seeing his to be wife marching down the aisle with strawberry flowers? Considering this anime has heavily implied name association (Princess Orihime, Sado Yasutora the Tiger, Yuzu-Ichigo-and Karin being named with homonyms for fruits, Ichigo addressing his name with the number 15 on his door, Kon being direct from Konpaku..) For Renji not to pick up on that, especially with Ichigo probably attending their wedding….he’s gotta know something is up. I mean how did Renji even know about Orihime’s crush on Ichigo let alone “know” Ichigo has a “crush on” Orihime too? Zero context for that too. Lot of plot hole issues with these pairings. )) 

Ishihime: 

now Uryu. Precious Uryu. He deserved the world and got nothing. An anti-social who ends up making friends only for them all to become distant from him once more. The original quincy who gets nearly zero spotlight in an arc dedicated to quincy. A man who stood up for ex-shinigami Rukia when she was getting sliced up by her “future husband” Renji. A man who noticed, reassured, encouraged, and was amazed by Orihime’s abilities and kindness. A man who would lay his life down for her after spending nearly the entire Soul Society arc with her. Orihime was the closest person in the group with Uryu, they even shared the same aspirations. They were both top in their sewing class, had quirky designs and tastes, and in the end were both interested in the medical field. They even had a close relative they adored die before their eyes when they were young. For this pairing not to be canon is a crime to me. These two deserved so… so much better. 

CONCLUSION: 

I honestly could live with Renruki. That’s a whatever for me for it to be canon. But Ichihime makes zero sense with the plot. That’s my main issue with the pairings. For Ichihime to be real, Ichigo and Orihime have to be in soul society. But even so, if Ichigo was in soul society, that means more time with Rukia, so at that point, who knows which way the pairings would go? 

That being said, I would not want a forced Ichiruki BLEACH ending if it meant there’d be no soul king and massive gun-shot plot holes and contradictory storyline like Ichihime left.  

I completely shipped Ichiruki in the first arc, but as I said, Kubo changed Rukia’s personality (and her friggen backstory? He made her out to be one of the weakest shinigami and yet she had a shikai like… when did she obtain this? If this was before she lost her powers then I’m at a loss as to how she couldn’t defeat a simple hollow, Kubo is a complete liar he legit had no idea where he was going with the story.)Maybe her desire to get rid of her powers and die because of the Kaien incident would make sense at the time, but other than that her being weak was weird, especially now since she’s defeated one of the most powerful underling quincy and obtained a bankai. How can that BLEACH editor say she’s not the true heroine of the series? She can fight and heal injuries, she’s got the training for it. 

So I absolutely love Ichiruki. As an AU. Because with the way Kubo set Ichigo up to really be the only soul king option besides Aizen, Ichiruki couldn’t be canon along with Ichihime. If the quincy arc diverged away from that where there was no desperate need for a soul king, Ichiruki should have totally become canon because of Ichigo’s bounds to Soul Society and given their chemistry. 

Orihime was jealous of Rukia because Rukia was always the one who could reach through to Ichigo no matter what. Orihime was never able to do that (besides that time in the Grimmjow fight, but the reason Ichigo was upset was because of her in the first place so it makes sense as to why he’d only listen to her that one time.)  For Orihime to still hold such good ties with Rukia all the while hating her on the inside for being closer with Ichigo is a surprise to me. She’s strong with her kindness, I’ll give her that. But regardless, she was helpless to save Ichigo, even with her powers. The only time she successfully healed him was during the first arc up to Grimmjow’s fight. After that, she just couldn’t seem to heal him anymore because her power is “no match” against the reiatsu inflicted wounds. 

Renji said Rukia’s faced never looked so alive when he mentioned traces of Ichigo sightings in Soul Society. Ichigo, a guy Rukia only knew for a little while, rushed in with little to no shinigami experience to save her, while Renji sat back hopeless knowing he could do nothing despite her being his only friend for so many years. He BEGGED Ichigo to save her because he couldn’t. 

Orihime and Renji could not once reach out to the ones they “loved” this whole series. They both held a jealously towards their “spouses’” significant other because they knew they couldn’t do the same. That says a lot about this entire situation. 

Ichiruki: 

To have two main characters: male and female… have such a great start off friendship…. to have the female character have a back story involving a guy who she loved who was so similar to Ichigo its uncanny, to have Ichigo quote something he heard from Rukia an entire arc ago when addressing his father’s shinigami powers, to have Orihime fear Ichigo turning hollow when Rukia fears FOR Ichigo as a hollow, to have ichigo constantly be concerned for Rukia’s well being during the Orihime Rescue mission ready to drop everything to go save her first if she was in trouble, to continuously joke about Ichigo and Rukia’s close “romantic” relationship in canon and filler arc along with rumors being spread that the two are dating within the highschool in the first arc, to have an entire movie dedicated to Ichigo and Rukia’s relationship where Ichigo remembered Rukia so quickly, while her future HUSBAND RENJI FORGOT HER COMPLETELY, to have multiple parallels of “sun and moon” yin/yang - clad-type finale white and black bankai moves -  similar Masaki-Isshin forbidden meeting parallel not to mention the parallel of Ichigo/Isshin saving Rukia/Masaki savior scene nearly laid out the same way, to have a PTSD rain significance with Ichigo’s memories of his mother dying- and when he saves Rukia he says the rain stopped because of her, to have Isshin and Ichigo’s family accept Rukia as a third daughter/sister and have her sleep in their house treating her as part of the family while Isshin and Yuzu listen in on Rukia and Ichigo’s conversations in the bedroom along with Yuzu being concerned because Rukia seems more girly and romance material to Ichigo than Tatsuki was, to have ichigo miss his power that he dreams about Rukia, to have Ichigo think of Rukia as the last and strongest pride he had as a shinigami when trying to gain his fullbring, to have Rukia swoop in and save him when he’s crying his eyes out to help him regain his power- to be the only one in Soul Society to be against the idea of Ichigo becoming Soul Society’s enemy and spying on him, when Ichigo ends up seeing Rukia’s butt in the hot springs and he and the other guy think of peaches….., when Renji forcibly picks a bloody defeated Ichigo off the ground Rukia tells him to wait and  that Ichigo might not be in good shape for a lecture despite that being her job the past few arcs, to have Yhwach say he’ll show up when Ichigo and his friends are at their happiest and he chooses to show up during Ichigo and Rukia’s 10 year reunion and not their weddings or baby-showers, to have Ichihime and Renruki become the “canon” pairing and having their children be the focus of the final chapter and yet the finale book cover is Ichiruki, to have a co-author novel with the suspicious title “We do KNOT always love you” featuring Renji and Rukia’s wedding and Ichihime confession, to have Ichiruki be voted the most popular BLEACH pairing and to be promoting the final BLEACH manga with Ichiruki advertisement bait….. to have the last image we see of the main group be of Ichigo and Rukia who hardly acknowledge their spouses the whole chapter?  

and Tite Kubo FRIENDZONED these two? 

Bye… 

I’m glad Ichiruki didn’t get in the way of the story like Ichihime did, so at least that’s a positive. 

Mitsuro Kubo, the creator of Yuri on Ice did in 12 anime episodes what Tite Kubo couldn’t do in 10 years. 

Create a believable, developed, romantic relationship with a good plot to back it up. 

and the best part is, Mitsuro Kubo did it with non-heterosexual characters. 

For Kubo to rush in with this light novel to try and force in “romantic development” to try and explain pairings he literally only splooshed together for the sake of children.. and to attempt to explain it in a single light novel when he had wasted a ton of plotline set ups that went no where that he could have spent developing said relationships in 10 years time? To have him claim this is an action genre only for him to approve of a light novel based around forced romance and not filling up the hundreds of plot holes he made in the series? Sure we get insight on a couple character’s status and whereabouts but uM WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED… TO THE SOUL KING? THE ZERO SQUAD? Y’KNOW… THE MOST IMPORTANT KEY TO THE WORLD BEING ABLE TO LIVE? HE DEEMED PAIRINGS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THAT?

If Kaien Shiba claims our hearts are in our fists, I think there’s a lot of bleach fans out there who would love to introduce their “hearts” to Kubo’s face… as harsh as that sounds. He and his entire editor team just continue to ship bait and lie to their fans. It’s very disrespectful, kinda giving fans a reason to be upset with them aside from their other choices. Still don’t approve of the harassment going on though. Nothing is gonna change it now besides us. Its up to us to patch up what’s left of BLEACH’S dignity by continuing to improve and create better plot lines that Kubo pulled out of his garbage can. 

So yeah. Ishihime and Ichiruki were, without a doubt in my mind, canon in the first arc. The amount of time and care each exhibited toward eachother throughout the arc says it all. The end game pairings were DEFINITELY not planned from the beginning. Kubo never had a hold that good on the plot of his series past the first arc. Its just… its not believable. Can’t buy it no matter how hard I try…

do u wanna know what i want to see in Supergirl? I want more of moments of Kara as Supergirl being an everyday hero. All of the show doesn’t need to be her fighting aliens 4x the size of her, or saving the world in every episode. Imagine Supergirl just going for a fly around National City and she sees a little girl sitting alone on the swings, so she stops in and says hi and offers to swing with her. Or maybe she hears some kid struggling with their math homework, so she stops in and tries to help them… (then calls Winn if she can’t remember how to do it). Perhaps a little girl is in the hospital, and her final wish is to meet Supergirl, so what does Supergirl do? She goes to the hospital and stays with the girl for as long as she possibly can. As much as i know the whole thing right now is big aliens and Cadmus, i really have this thing for nice, sweet, bubbly Kara showing through Supergirl’s steel exterior.

gryxe-deactivated20170215  asked:

do you know of any brands/places/retailers that sell workout clothes at an affordable price? i've never really had enough money to afford all the fancy instagram workout stuff and the knockoffs I buy always break/rip/etc

I can personally recommend:

  • Old Navy - They consistently have sales on activewear, so you can purchase some relatively good quality items for cheap. The items I’ve bought from them have lasted for years and pass the squat test. And much of their clothing goes up to size 4x/30!
  • Kohls - Another good source of sales. The quality of their items are hit-or-miss, but they offer a huge variety of styles. All of my running shorts comes from here.
  • Champion - My chosen source of leggings. They’re opaque, offer various fits and stand the test of time. If buying directly from Champion is too expensive for you, then keep an eye out for these products at stores like Marshalls and Burlington Coat Factory. Also look for them at…
  • Target - Can be a tad more expensive for basic items, but what they sell tends to be good quality. I find a lot of C9 Champion items here, too. Great for tops and sports bras!

And some places where I haven’t bought clothes in a while, but can vouch for:

  • ClothingUnder10.com - Non-name brand items in fairly limited sizes, but keep an eye on this page. Some fun items tend to pop up and you might hit it lucky. Just be sure to carefully read the sizing guide before buying.
  • Danskin - I love them, I don’t know why I haven’t bought more! In addition to good quality, they sell quite a lot of their items in Walmart, so that gives you an idea of their price point. Order directly from the website if you want to see their full range of clothing.
  • Marika - Slightly pricier, but they offer a range of sizes that actually look cute on all bodies. Watch for their sales, especially on sports bras.

And lastly - Always remember that Instagram #fitspo isn’t actually about working out. These are models who are being paid to wear certain clothing. Very, very little of it is “real,” in the sense that very, very few of the models are actually wearing this stuff in the gym consistently. If your clothes are ripping but their’s aren’t, it’s because you’re actually wearing your stuff regularly. Try not to compare your life to them! Even if you could afford their fancy stuff, they’re selling a fantasy that us Average Joes can’t really attain.

I’m honestly a bit ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ about that aspect of ModCloth (there is no ethical consumption under capitalism and all. And honestly what shopping outlet ISN’T owned by an evil conglomerate at this point?)

The thing that’s great about ModCloth is that they a). have a nice selection of plus-size clothing and b). they’re one of the few retailers out there that I know of that actually sells colorful clothing, not just variants of Kardashian-ified spandex crop tops in various shades of black and grey

BUT I do have some problems with their stuff, mainly a) it’s seriously over-priced, especially for the amount of rayon and polyester that they use, and b). the sizing on their plus-size stuff isn’t exactly the best. Usually I’m a size 2X everywhere I go, but I got a 2X dress from ModCloth and I couldn’t get it zipped. I had to return it and got their largest size, a 4X, which fit, but came two weeks after the event I needed a dress for happened.

So I’ve been looking for a decent alternative.

For fat girls looking for cheap leggings to wear under dresses/long tops

I just got a pair of these “Zando” brand women’s capri leggings off Amazon.  They are cheap and the 7x (US Size 4x) stretches easily to fit my 5x/6x butt.  

They are DEFINITELY cheaply constructed, so don’t buy these thinking you’re getting super quality items, but they’re lightweight enough that I can wear them under cowcow dresses without adding too much heat factor (because the downside to cow cow stuff is that the fabric gets hot quickly).  The fabric is thin, so you probably want to wear something over them to cover yer butt unless you’re totes OK with people seeing your undies.

Hope this helps.  The pair I got were $8.99 and had free shipping (to the US) but prices will probably vary a bit.  They came from China but got here quite quickly, so that was nice also.

Heavy weight Champion

The time for wrestling try-outs came around again, and every guy in school was interested. By far the best, was Nate. He was light on his feet, and so could easily dodge an oncoming opponent. He was muscularly built, on top, but less so on bottom; his biceps were thick, but his thighs and calves were more slender; he was he perfect physique for wrestling. Jealous of this, was Cameron. Cameron had always been predominantly bottom-heavy, and so wasn’t as agile in comparison to Nate. This by no means meant Cameron was a bad wrestler and competitor, in fact, he was one of the best, but due to his build, that was all he ever was, ‘one of the best’, never, 'the best’. Cameron knew that if he was ever to beat Nate, Nate would have to become more bottom-heavy, similar to that of Cameron. This would even out the playing field Cameron thought. Although the idea of what Cameron should do was clear, it was the execution that left him perplexed. He hadn’t always been the closest of friends to Nate, but they were by no means enemies; they were friendly, but not necessarily friends. Cameron knew that if he was to do anything to resolve his predicament, that would be his first plan of action.

Over time, Cameron strengthened his relationship with Nate, building trust amongst the two of them. They soon became close, and were at each others houses every night. Cameron now had the opportunity to do whatever it was he was eventually going to do, however what that was, still remained unclear. Cameron remembered that a fellow peer and wrestling playmate, Max, had been prescribed growth hormones due to his lacking body mass. He’d been taking them for a while, and so Cam knew that Max kept his pills in the top shelf of his gym locker. One time after wrestling practice, Cameron watched over Max as he entered his combination, memorised it, and then entered the digits once Max had left. Cameron grabbed the pills and hurried home.

A plan had now been thought out: mix the growth hormone tablets into Nate’s food and wait for the repercussions. Nate was over at Cameron’s house nearly every night and so to slip the pills in with his dinner was hardly a difficult task. This went on for weeks, and Cameron struggled to see a difference in Nate’s appearance; he was still slim on bottom and heavier on top. However, it was after 3 ½ weeks that something changed.

All the boys were at wrestling practice on a Thursday after school. Naturally, Nate was used as a demonstration, and was subsequently on show for all others there. Nobody else knew to look out for any changes in Nate’s body and so didn’t notice any changes, but Cameron, well, he was looking out. He noticed Nate’s singlet pull around the groin and thigh area. It restricted his bulge and thickening thighs, leaving little to the imagination. As Nate threw another opponent to the floor, his ass had ballooned, swelling at least 4x in size. It was especially juicy, and plump; swollen like a plum. Safe to say, Cameron was overjoyed.

Nate began noticing his increasing weight and confided in Cam about his concerns.
“You haven’t noticed my body changing at all lately have you?…”
“Your body? Um, no, no I haven’t…why?”
“I don’t know, it’s probably just me, but I feel like my singlet had been feeling especially tight recently, and I’m struggling to fit into any of my jeans.”
“You’re probably just growing” Cameron said, lying though his teeth.
“Yeah…you’re probably right…” Nate replied.
This trend carried on for as long as Cam had mixed Nate’s food with the pills, and Nate’s rear had continually enlarged. By this point, all others on the team had noticed Nate’s ballooned ass; it was unmissable. It jiggled and swayed from side to side, even with the slightest of movements. Nate now struggled to win any of his fights, which became apparent to his coach and teammates. His butt was now the size of two, thick, plump balloons. Nate had ripped through over three singlets now, and his butt and groin only continued growing. Cameron simply smiled in pleasure, as Nate’s thick legs and butt got thrown to the ground.

a jeans company contacted me that only carries up to a women’s size 12/14ish in jeans and a size L in shirts/jackets (they have a weird size chart) offered to send me some denim in exchange for a post. i spent about 10 mins on their site looking for anything plus size and couldn’t find anything. looked for their size chart and it only went up to the equivalent to a women’s L/juniors XL.

i emailed back saying i was more than double the size that they carry and had they actually looked at my profile, they would have seen i am not their demographic and that it was fucking insulting to have to dig through their shit.

They emailed back almost instantly and said AND I QUOTE: “Hi, we do have sizes up to 4x, but thanks for your comment. I’ll make sure to be more clear to the next person”

which of course makes me feel like i jumped the gun and like an asshole so i decide to sit down and go through every last page of their site and every single post on their instagram. No plus sizes on the site, not a single plus model, no plus influencers on their instagram, no mention of plus sizes ANYWHERE. and i sent it all to my friend and she couldn’t find anything either so i wasn’t just overlooking it in a rage

so I email them back again, quoted “I don’t know what you expected me to think? Your email says nothing about plus sizes. I spent fifteen minutes on your site desperately looking for anything that goes above a women’s size Large/31 inch waist. your size chart only goes up to a 31. your instagram is full of thin models and your site uses thin models only. if you’re looking to expand to plus sizes, good on you, but this was a really really insulting and shitty experience on my end.” and later once i was done perusing the site, sent another email, word for word: “also i just went through every item on your website and did not see a single thing above a size large? you said you do have sizes up to 4x? where?”

no reply. so like i don’t want to jump the gun again here, but it reaaaaally feels like this person just lied to me about having plus sizes to make me feel shitty for replying to their auto email.

if this company doesn’t come out with a plus line in the next year or this asshole doesn’t email me back talking about plus size expansion i’m going to be pissed and maybe put the name of the company out there because that is bullshit. i was so mad and the longer i go without a reply, the angrier i get.

I was taken aback by how quickly the CG June 4th concert tickets got sold out. Same as the first CG concert. Agree that Darren is extremely popular and it shouldn't be that surprising but it still bothered me. More my instincts than anything else and also cause of what I heard last time, that Darren's team and his beard were trying to keep CC shippers out and fill up the venue with chillarrens and friends. And that only they were given whatever it was that enabled them to purchase ... (1)

…to purchase the tickets first. I am a longtime CC shipper and you may call me biased and I won’t be offended by that. After the Teragram concert, I am looking at all the IG stories and pictures from the concert, the tweets of miarren intimate moments and all the posted videos (thank you btw as we couldn’t wait to see them) and reviews and stories of the evening… I barely recognize any names. If anything, the ones I did are M’s friends (from her past) or known chillarren shippers. …(2)

Considering how long I have been in the fandom, how come I saw just one CC shipper posting. Does that mean, the CC fandom was again barred / banned from the concert and only the ingenious ones who managed to slip through, got in? Was it more important to have Darren sing PPG as opposed to I don’t mind? Does it mean that even the teenaged CC shippers are not welcome at D’s concerts as they won’t be screaming and crying for Darren, hoping to date him/be next beard? Great job Darren’s team! …(3)

Hi Anon, thanks for bearing with me and re-sending part 2 multiple times. So very strange.

Anyhow, I think I already wrote about my experience with the NYC show, which was a lot smaller.  Tickets were to go on sale with a password at 12:00. I did not get mine until approximately 12:18 and by the time I was able to log on, tickets were sold out.  It is my understanding that the password was circulating in the world prior to 12:18. And yes, I suspect that a first round of “PR compliant” fans were given the password in advance to ensure they were present. And there is no question that venue was filled with beard friendly fans. None.  It was very reminiscent of the pop-up piano bar event prior to Elsie. Another event where M was prominently on display, one had to “win” tickets to attend, and looking at the pics, the M stans were all in attendance.  The thing about these type of events where people “win” tickets or a password is needed, it is very easy to manipulate who actually gets the tickets.

However, I won’t go so far as to say CC fans are barred, I think that would be too hard to control.  They would have to have a separate list of “undesirable” emails. And I think that is way beyond Ricky’s extremely limited abilities. But I do believe other fans are given major advantages.

And  it gets really old.  Darren has a ton of fans and its frustrating that Ricky has to continuously favor the same group repeatedly. And its not just events. I have seen fan pics with said fans on the stage at Hedwig. I did not see that from any other Darren fan who is not kissing ass to get favors.  

I honestly do not know on the LA show. I think it took a little longer to sell out (a few hours). It is a bigger venue (I want to say 4x the size, 250 at Mercury Lounge and maybe 1000 in Telegram??? Too lazy to look that up). I know specifically of two CC people present.  And while I wasn’t paying close attention, I was curious, and I am fairly certain the password was sent timely.

But again, no question that venue was filled to the max with M friendly fans who could be counted on to report her every move. 

And on Sunday the strategy was as transparent as ever. They had the fans there early.  M “causally” walked passed them multiple times with her “equipment.”  Fans were able to catch a glimpse of the “director’s notes” and even get a photo of said notes.  And fans were inside reporting about how hard she was “working.”  Some fans even apparently saw M&D with their arms around each other as well. Conveniently, that was another moment where every camera must have broke because I have yet to see one photo or video of this “tender moment.” (not saying it did not happen, we all know this was a PR set up but the lack of photos is telling).

This strategy however, again, just highlights the truth. If M&D were in an actual relationship, it would be wholly and completely unnecessary to stack a venue or event with her fans to spread the news that she is present. None.  Because they wouldn’t have to work to sell the relationship. The genuineness would sell itself.  But as this is the most purely executed bearding relationship in bearding history, Ricky needs all the help he can get.

I will disagree on one thing. While absolutely no question, there was a time when this was about selling Darren as a straight man. These past few events are about selling M and getting her exposure and publicity.  The job she was given on Sunday- that was a huge, huge pay out. Intended to build her resume and make her look legitimate as opposed to her true persona- the lazy, spoiled, self-entitled brat that has not had an actual job aside from trailing after Darren in years. And even the ones she had were token positions handed to her because of her association with Darren and the need to keep up appearances. 

 And they needed people in attendance to both get the word out that she was actually “working” for once in her life and to document, that yes she was even “working hard!!!”

On the songs, not sure what possessed him to reprise the second worst song in his repertoire. But I am guessing that was not a choice. And while I am sad he teased but did not sing I Don’t Mind, I am cool with it if he reserves it for a time that is stunt and PR free.  And we did get 2 Darren songs (Day the Dance is Over and Foolish Thing) that are about his actual relationship. 

I honestly have no complaint about the performances on the stage. It is the circus that surrounds it that has me constantly shaking my head.

This dress makes even my flat pancake butt look huge. Susie hasn’t decorated her tree, but it’s a great backdrop for ootd shoots. Also, Susie and I are so happy military-style coats and jackets are back in the style so we can get away with wearing all the bright buttoned pieces.

Size: 22-24, 3x-4x, 47"/49"/56"
Dress: Plussizefix.com
Leggings: Torrid
Knee boots: Remonte
Jacket: Deb (are Deb stores even still a thing? I got this forever ago omg)

None of these fit me!! Anyone want to buy them??

Just a heads up the first two are UK 5X which is a US 4X

The second to last one is US 5X but my personal opinion is that it might fit a US 4X size person pretty well.

Send me a message, buy more than one and Ill give you a deal :)

anonymous asked:

Can you name me some websites that sell clothes for bigger people?

Okay, I will name/link all of the websites I can think of off the top of my head…but I’m sure there are lots more! So if anyone wouldn’t mind helping out please feel free to add more by re-blogging!


First here are my most frequented sites that I have personally shopped at and feel most comfortable recommending! 

1.) modcloth! They have retro/modern style clothes and go up to a size 4X (wish it went higher, and hopefully they will soon…but for now this is what they got) 

2.) ASOS Curve high quality clothes that I believe go up to a size 26/28, little pricey but they always have a lot of sales! 

3.) Eshakti SUPER high quality (and expensive unfortunately) dresses, skirts, and tops…best part is you can custom size the clothes and they go up to a 6X!!!) 

4.) Torrid …I think most people have heard of them, I honestly only buy leggings and the occasional dress from there…but I LOVE/live in their Premium leggings! 

5.) SimplyBe I’ve gotten a few dressed and leggings from here…not the greatest customer service so double/triple check your order before placing it! But over all I have been happy with what I’ve bought from here! 

6.) CityChic ....I have a cardigan and a dress from here (that I’m actually trying to sell…so I might post about that soon) and I’ve been impressed with the quality and they usually have killer sales going on! 



Other wise here are the others I can think of off the top of my head that I haven’t really shopped at but have heard good things: 

Evans

Yours Clothing

Forever 21 Plus

NewLook

AdditionElle

And 

igigi


That’s all I can think of right now…but hopefully others will add some! Hope it helps! 


Have a great day! <3<3

I haven’t done a progress pic in a while and I wanted to show off some of my new clothes from an awesome thrift store I just discovered! Buying new clothes every time I dropped a size or two got too expensive!

Left: 360ish pounds, size 3x or 4x
Right: 190ish pounds, Size m/l
Height: 5'7"ish

A year and a half of exercise and eating right and I’m almost half the size I used to be and a NASM certified personal trainer! I lost the first 100lbs in the first 6 months! For those who ask, I didn’t have any surgeries or take any pills! I just changed my eating and exercise habits, kept a positive attitude, and set S.M.A.R.T. goals! Get excited about your goals and your life, and do something everyday to get closer to them! You can be whoever you want to be! You got this!

I was on a date with a guy from Meet me.

I was telling him I liked how my favorite store caters to almost all sizes, up to 4x

Him, completely unprovoked:
“There’s no REAL excuse for being fat, it has nothing to do with genetics or anything. All fat people are disgusting and deserve to DIE.”

Me, a fat girl: uh…..ok?? Lol nooooo wtf
