✨ 🌸 mildliner inspired study playlists🌸 ✨

blue pack (cool)

  • mostly instrumental music for improved concentration
  • best for “chill” study sessions i.e. re-reading lessons, rewriting notes, making annotations, flashcards etc
  • of cool breeze floating gently into the room, causing the edges of curtains to flutter. you look up from your notebook and notice how quiet the world is, how clean your desk is. books are neatly stacked in a corner; the vase has fresh daisies in it. you can hear your soft breathing in the silence.
  • everything is so calm, and yet you’re crying.

pink pack (neon)

  • for when you have something due at 7am and it’s already 4am but you’re just 50% done RIP
  • no really why did you procrastinate???!
  • YA SO TIRED BUT YA GOTTA GET THAT A
  • gotta have some power POP instead of power NAP
  • “I swear I will never do this again!!!”

yellow (warm)

  • nothing really matters in life anymore; you’re just numb™
  • but you still have to study because people expect so much of you; you expect so much of you
  • this is sitting in a room feeling tired and lonely, pale sunset light surrounding you. this is thinking you’re too old for your body; that everything good has already happened.
  • this is flipping absentmindedly through textbook pages, re-reading every sentence twice because your mind is elsewhere.
  • and maybe this is about remembering something to live for, even if it’s that one friend, that one tv show

Hi Emma! Im thinking of buying a cute journal to write in this summer. Any thoughts of what I could do in it? (Besides writing a story or write about my day) Thanks!

Hello! Here are a few things you could do:

  • diary (as you said): log your day, write what you did, just a record of your day-to-day happenings
  • story (as you said): write down all the stories!!
  • bullet journal: note down all your daily to-do and focus on getting them done!
  • gratitude journal: write down things you’re grateful for each day and why
  • 365 journal: write down a sentence a day. Could be a quote you like, an event that happened, a funny moment or something!
  • dream log: write down your dreams and maybe research their meaning!
  • review journal: if you see a movie or read a book write down your thoughts!
  • photo a day journal: make a daily scrapbook/photo album
  • expense tracker: note each thing you spend your money (you could track everything or just the things you treat yourself on)
  • goals journal: set yourself a goal and try to map out how you will achieve over a certain amount of time! Record how well you’re doing!
  • recipe book: write down ingredients and an easy step-by-step guide so you can always make something to eat
  • dashboard notebook: a little book that is kind of a hub of your life such as important emergency contacts, accounts names/passwords/emails, etc
  • tv show tracker: note down each season and cross of episodes as you go. You could also write down important parts of each episode so you can be reminded of what you’ve seen.
  • inspiration/mood-book: print off photos, quotes, random bits and bobs that you find inspiration
  • gift log: write down the birthdays, anniversaries, holidays of your friends and note down any ideas you might think they’d like as a gift. If they ever say “I love that!” then make a note of what it is and where to get it so you can get later!
  • wishlist journal: take note of things you’d like to buy over the year!
  • happiness journal: make a scrapbook of things that make you happy - could be photos, quotes, events, people, etc
  • monthly overview, goals and reflection: each month write down things that happened and how you felt
  • project/assessment book: plan out all your school or university assignments such as due dates, word count, to-dos, questions, citations, etc
  • ‘fuck that’ book: when you’re angry or annoyed by something, write it down, rant about until your hearts content!
  • your own wreck this journal - you can Google to see what I mean but make your own version. Either you come up with ideas or maybe get a friend to write down cool things to do.
  • magazine clipping journal - if you see anything you like, cut it and stick it in. For me, I’d maybe do street style or runway fashion!
  • swatch book: whenever you get some new pens, make a swatch board of them!
  • friendship journal: you and your friend(s) could make a book where you write down things you like about each other, places you go to together, photos you take, etc. Maybe pass it around each week and you can all review what you’re doing!
  • travel log: even if you aren’t travelling far or overseas write down where you go and what it was like. Write down places you’d like to visit or things you’d like to see!
  • doodle book: just a book full of random drawings, sketches, etc
  • writing prompts: find some writing prompts that you’d like to continue and get writing!
  • receipts book: stick in all the things you spend your money on either to track or just out of curiosity!
  • flower press log: a cool way to save any pretty plants you find!
  • scrapbook: put in some of your favourite things in there! You could maybe do them for your friends for cute, personalised gifts!
  • handwriting practice: take time to practice your lettering, caligraphy or just normal handwriting!
  • habit tracker: do a ‘don’t break the chain’ kind of thing to either create or break your habits!

Hope that gives you some ideas! x

it is a wide night and your throat is closed at the base of it. his hand and your hand are two satellites that have lost contact, searching for each other in the bleakness of space and grasping only loneliness. you and he sit in a cooling car and lean the seats back and struggle to say the intangible. you ask him for a secret so for once you can hold a vulnerable part of him. after a silence so long it breaks your ribs he says that there’s nothing in him but horror stories. he tells you to watch your hunger, that even honey tastes bitter when you drown in it.

it is a slow moon. you are alone now and the road is a howl and you won’t put on your seatbelt. your fingers are tight, could explode your bones into the loving embrace of a brick wall. you want to call him and ask him if he has ever accidentally drank his own sorrow because yours is sitting against your voice box and won’t choke down. instead you turn the radio up in the hopes that you will feel something when you listen to this song.

it is an indigo blackness. you never learned how to hold your own body without letting bits of it fall out. your hands are on the steering wheel and at 60 miles an hour if you wanted it bad enough you could come back to dust. when people fall out of love with you they make swatches of big bruised absence and if you were a color you’d be all of that, painted under your toes up to your numb lips. does he know that your smile is a paradox, a sad happiness, an empty full. does he know that you sing so loud to drown the voices out. the funny thing about dying is that humans live beside it until the moment they yank the wheel the wrong way and collide with their end.

it is a venom moment. your mouth is turning into a wasp nest. you are so close to calling him and telling him everything. show him you know what it’s like to be a falling elevator. tell him that you have secrets too and they might have matched him. tell him that you’re a safe place if he needs a person to run to about his brain burning. explain about how even though neither of you has got a steady tongue you can both talk out your ice flows until they melt into the dawn ocean. turn this car and yourself and your life around. bite down on it and suck the snake out.

it is time to go home. you turn up the radio. in the bitter morning, you make yourself tea with honey.

I know I’m late posting about Kat Von D’s new Everlasting Liquid lipsticks. But I saw the swatch video on Facebook and then I started thinking about them.

The shades that appeal to me are: Lovecraft, Haze, Ludwig, Hawkwind, XO and Woolf. The downside is that they all have different launch dates, so they’ll come out in dribs and drabs. Hopefully I can get some of the shades I like when they are released.

Short Curl Conversion Recolor

Recolored the short curl conversion by @saartje77 in the 9 remaining EA colors. This file adds the EA unnaturals as additional color swatches and makes the hair genetic (the adult version as well as the children version). The original mesh is required.

Hi, Emma! I got a bunch of composition notebooks as gifts and they're very pretty, but I don't really know how to best use them. I prefer spirals or loose leafs for notes, and they're not perforated. Any ideas on how to use these composition books? Thanks ><)
