skin brush

Bursting into laughter when I feel the sun on my skin and wind brushing against me and realizing it is the same sun and air I have felt in every phase of my life.

I often try to explain what it feels like being an empath in what is arguably the most intense city on this planet.

Living somewhere with constant noise I can never quite get away from, even in my own bedroom, yelling, sirens, traffic…

Seeing light but also seeing and experiencing a lot of darkness firsthand.

Feeling everything that happens around me. Every interaction. Avoiding eye contact with people to prevent unwanted energy latching onto me. Lots of cleansing. Extra nurturing. Wearing layers of clothes in heat to avoid harassment. Feeling ashamed of my body, my beauty, my sensuality, something that is so sacred and the very foundation for thriving as a human. Practicing gentleness and unconditional forgiveness in a place where people are conditioned to be quick, tough, cold and unforgiving.

I feel fortunate if I even have a verbal exchange with a cashier at a store because of how closed off people are.
Onto the next task, the next hustle, always in defense mode, ready to argue.
It’s almost inevitable.

Outside environment will always be outside environment. Noise will always be noise. Darkness will always be darkness.

The only control we have is within ourselves.
It is okay to be soft. It is okay to be sensitive.
It is okay to be a female in a female vessel.
It is okay to feel everything.
It is okay to continuously love when the world around us is harsh, negative, and ruthlessly aggressive.
Keep loving.
Keep understanding.
Practice compassion.
Practice peace in any environment.
Be a space holder.
Be the embodiment of love that you are.

For the @mlcalendarproject I got assigned July (my birthday month, actually!)!  


You know what that means…?

AN: let’s just pretend derek is still in teen wolf and he never lost his alpha title.  i’m such a sucker for alpha hale right now. 

beacon hills was a beautiful town, strange but beautiful none the less. you’d lived here your whole life, fortunately you’d managed to go most of your life without knowing what truly lurked in the dark but in the end, you were exposed to it all and fighting things nightmares were made of was a daily occurrence now.

He watched that pulse, the evidence of her heart, matching his own beat for anxious beat. He saw the damp curve of her neck, the gleam of her brown skin. He wanted to … He wanted.

Before he even knew what he intended, he lowered his head. She drew in a sharp breath. His lips hovered just above the warm juncture between her shoulder and the column of her neck. He waited. Tell me to stop. Push me away.

She exhaled. “Go on,” she repeated. Finish the story.

The barest movement and his lips brushed her skin—warm, smooth, beaded with moisture. Desire coursed through him, a thousand images he’d hoarded, barely let himself imagine — the fall of her dark hair freed from its braid, his hand fitted to the lithe curve of her waist, her lips parted, whispering his name.

Ultimate passing tips list for pre-t transguys (and some other tips too)

Yes passing is a social construct yada yada yada but if you want some tips to look like a average joe cis male and pass for say bathroom situations or in public this is for you. I know you can wear whatever you want and do whatever you want but these things can help you pass if that’s what you want. This is info I’ve gathered over the years and stuff I’ve learnt myself too so i thought i’d put them in one place. 

This stuff works for me, i pass all the time basically even if i am perceived as a younger guy that’s fine by me.

its pretty lengthy so the topics are facial hair, hair, jaw, voice, height, hips, packing, binding, swimming, working out, foods, body language, clothes and bathrooms.

beauty products people should stop sleeping on

shimmer body lotion- this deadass will make you feel so good about yourself. Turns you into an instant goddess.

Hydrogen peroxide- take advantage of its bleaching properties!! If you have hair that you want less visible but don’t want the upkeep of shaving (like arms, tum, upper lip, tush, etc.), use this to lighten the hair. Also can be used on blackheads (but be cautious not to bleach any hair near your face). If you do this, gently exfoliate the area first and then use a cotton pad to apply this. Rinse it off after 20 ish minutes. Mix with baking soda and brush it on your teeth to whitten them. this can be done pretty often but be gentle and have limits please. Also gets blood out of anything.

Honey- honey is literally a miracle product I love it so much. Has anti bacterial and antimicrobial properties bc of its low pH and it basically has no water in it. use it as a face mask as often as you want. Mix with things like turmeric for extra results but be careful bc turmeric in particular stains your skin yellow for some time. Use in or as a hair mask to soften hair and prevent hair loss. Use in your tea, oatmeal, smoothies for health benefits but be careful not to microwave it bc that kills all of the good stuff. Also honey is best when its raw and it will say that on the label.

Sunscreen- do I even need to say anything about this. Do your best to get a natural one that does not have retinal palmitate bc that actually is really bad for you when its exposed to sunlight??? Capitalism is amazing. No rules

Face peel- these will usually be fruit based and you only have to use them for less than 10 mins usually. More gentle and even than physical exfoliators. Makes your skin nice and soft but don’t over exfoliate by using another exfoliating product afterwards and avoid the sun for a little bit afterwards.

Cuticle oil and hand lotion- basically just treat your hands kindly. Wear sunscreen on the back of your hands. Give yourself a hand massage when you can. The hands are the windows to your soul and they age like raisins if youre not careful

Dry brush- !!! ill probably do another post about this but basically you get a natural brush and brush your skin before you shower or you use the brush and an oil of your choice after you shower. Brush towards the heart. This will improve the appearance of cellulite, improve your circulation, help the lymph nodes thus detoxifying you, less dead skin, better digestion, etc. doesn’t take very long either!!!

Who’s your Boyfriend?

You leaned up to kiss Dean as he’d slid an arm underneath you, and pulled you up and straddle his lap. You moaned into his mouth as you sank down onto him. Your head fell back as he slowly filled you, his mouth finding one of your breasts as you slowly began to move your hips back and forth. He sucked and teased your nipple with his teeth, the sensitivity causing you to tremble as you rode him.

Shawn grabbed roughly around your waist, after slamming the bathroom door, making sure to lock it behind you.

In a quick move, he picked you up from the floor and you wrapped your legs around his hips. He banged your back against the wall, leaving behind a loud noise, as he roughly smashed his craving lips into yours.

Earth Signs - Conserving Mother Earth 

Deep in the cosmic jungle, an oasis awaits with Mother Earth’s children, her Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. The earth signs need to apply energy through material conducts. Materialism for earth types is not just money and appliances. Material is the silk of petal, the cushion of grass, the coolness of air, their skin brushing the leaves. Taurus is the investor, the creator, and the designer. It was Taurus who designed the harps and instruments for the Gods. It is Taurus who plants the sunflowers, nurtures the blossom, and uses their skin to kiss the sun. The sensual, material investment of Taurus gives life to art and existence. The second earth sign is Virgo, the intellect of the triad, the repairer. The seasonal rhythms and cyclones flow and circulate in the mind, seeking cracks in the environment that must be repaired. The stunning artistry and tapestry of the world comes undone without the observation of Virgo, whose hands are weaved with intricate talents that gently sew any tear back together. It is Virgo who secretly primes the roots that have been cracked, it is Virgo who allows water to be delivered once again. While the other signs sleep, Virgo stays awake, eternally nocturnal, unwilling to let a tiny break become catastrophe. Capricorn is the final earth sign. This is the preserver, conserver, and protector. Capricorn has the ability to store everything in freeze frame, like a crystal blanket of preservation, the Capricorn perceives long lasting value in everything. The masterpiece of material becomes the responsibility of Capricorn. The earth signs are environmental conservationists, typically concerned about climate change and threatening human activity. The earth signs feel the closest affinity with Mother Nature, she pulses through the body of Taurus, she thinks through the mind of Virgo, and she declares law through the action of Capricorn.

“This is amazing, Shawn” I muttered, my jaw dropping amazed. 

“Dude, it’s dope” Brian agreed, nodding excited. 

Shawn had invited us all around to see his new flat and though the rooms were impressive, Shawn’s view over Toronto beat every view I’d ever seen in my entire life. Even the sunset Brian and I once watched in Sri Lanka didn’t do this one justice.

“Your mother outdid herself finding this” I said, looking out at the CN Tower lighting colourfully up in the dark.

Relationship: Stiles Stilinski x Reader

Warnings: NSFW, Explicit Sexual Content, Smut, Oral (Male on Female), Virginity Loss, Skinny Dipping, Swearing, and So much fucking angst. Make sure you have tissues ready. 

Word Count: 12,271 

Song: I’ll Keep You Safe by Sleeping At Last

A/N: This is without a doubt one of the best fics Hayley and I have ever written. Not just as a collab, but amongst our own works as well. We are both so fucking in love with this story and I hope you guys love it as much as we do. Words cannot explain how amazing and beautiful this fic is to me.

If you are the kind of person who enjoys reading bubbly love stories with happy endings than I must advice you now that this story is not one of those. Because I am about to tell you the story of two lovers so addicted to each other and so connected to the other that they cheated death itself — only to be struck by another wave of agonizing tragedy instead.

Y/N Y/L/N and Stiles Stilinski were the two greatest lovers time and the universe have ever witnessed… and that drove them insane. Jealousy taking over both of their features, the universe did everything it could to separate the two until finally time found a vicious way to win. How could they have known a force so much stronger and so much darker than the incredible love they shared had begun to take over?

It didn’t matter how hard they tried to fight back nor how much they begged time for mercy, their destinies were already paved. All they could do was accept its path and believe in the quote life had beautifully taught them:

The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.
