turchinorain  asked:

Question for ya, I saw you noticed you reblog some things about describing skin color in writing and I noticed that a don't is comparing dark/deep skin to food. I was wondering what's wrong with that? Chocolate is amazing and sexy, who wouldn't want to be compared to it?

Thanks for the ask! I was super interested in this, because, even as a person of color, so many of the writings that I enjoy have been written by White Americans and Europeans. As such the descriptions of people of color (if any), are usually shallow. As a result, some of my attempts have come up short as well.

The short answer falls into two BIG points (I’m sure there are more, but these ones stuck out to me):

A) Fetishizing.

As a woman of color married to a white person, I have been endearingly called by food-based nicknames in the past six or so years of our relationship. “Cocoa Puff” is a favorite of mine, because I’m a little “coocoo” and I have a puffy afro. Its a cute name. But when my husband’s family “lovingly” say, “He loves his dark chocolate! or "He likes his women like he likes his coffee!” the endearing nature is gone. Why? Simply put, it makes one person lower than another. The difference between predator and prey, is that one hunts and EATS the other. The food is seen as weaker and “less than” the eater.

As I said, this one doesnt bother me as much. Its a quick go to, which brings me to my next point…

B) Its Unoriginal.

How many words describe brown skin that aren’t food based? There are actually a lot. Russet, Tawny, Golden…the list goes on. Reducing someone’s skin color to food is easy because its something most people are familiar with. It doesnt take as much imagination, and doesnt require as much research. Because, even within a single ethnicity, there are different shades of skin tones and varieties, not to mention multiracial/multiethnic peoples which can come in any number of colors and skin tones.

My suggestion, take a look at a color thesaurus. I saw my first one on Pinterest and again on Tumblr. Its extremely helpful. Also, the blog @writingwithcolor has a more extensive list as to why this is a harmful trend.

Thanks again!

Crispy Cauliflower & Cheese Bites

1.Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius / 400 degrees Fahrenheit
2.Roughly chop the cauliflower and add into a food processor to chop it into a finer crumb. If you don’t have a food processor, don’t worry – you can chop it by hand, it just takes a little longer.
3.Grate the cheese and add it to a large mixing bowl with the cauliflower, egg and black pepper. Mix everything well until it starts to feel a little more like a mixture.
4.Lightly grease a muffin tray with some vegetable oil and spoon in around 1 and a half tablespoons of the mixture into each hole. Add the tray into the oven and cook for 15 minutes.
5. Resist the temptation to eat immediately. Cool for a few minutes and enjoy.
They are amazing dipped in a chopped chives, crumbled bacon and sour cream mix.

tips to lose weight

I’m writing this because i receive sooooo many questions of how i’ve lost so much in a so short time (-15kg in 4 months) and if i have some tips to lose weight quickly

Well, here there are my tips you can follow to reach your goal faster!

~EAT HEALTHIER
-eat more proteins and less carbs and cut off unhealthy food.
-always have “safe foods” in the fridge, some of my favorites are fish, salad, pumpkin soup, broccoli, chicken and pineapple
(ps: add pineapple to salad, it’s amazing!!!)
-Eat more during the first part of the day and less during the evening (this is so much important!!)
-For breakfast have unsweetened green tea: it boosts metabolism! (if you don’t like green tea try adding a little bit of honey but pay attention cause honey is really caloric. don’t add sugar, it deletes every green tea’s benefit)

~DON’T BINGE

if you have already started a binge spit what you are eating and throw away everything you know you can have a binge on, then make a tea and stay in your room and distract yourself.
-Purging is not allowed.
-To distract yourself you can for e.g. sleep (my fav way to make hunger go away), take a shower, go out for shopping, look at thinspo on tumblr, workout or study
and if happens to binge don’t panic! sometimes it’s good to have a binge to boost up your metabolism

~WORKOUT THE MOST YOU CAN
More workout you do more you will lose weigh quickly

If you spread some exercises such as squats or jumping jacks during all day it’s easy to burn a lot.

Walking/running burn a lot as well in a easy way. Avoid to go by car or by buses and go for a walk (km done x 0.9 x your weight in kg = cal burned)
-FOR FLAT STOMACH: plank, crunches, russian twist, jumping jacks
-FOR THIGH GAP: jumping jacks, squats, lunges, wall sit, butterfly stretch, butt-ups, inner thigh raise

Hope to help you❤️
let me know if it worked also for youu!!

Self-Care for Littles with Periods <3

Hello! Today marks the first day of the week and a bit I will spend curled up with a hot water bottle as much as possible, so I thought I’d post a list of self care ideas for any other littles (and caregivers too) who may be dealing with the horrible no-fun experience of periods. It can be hard to feel little when you’re experiencing pain, discomfort, mood swings or any of the other amazing (sarcasm) symptoms that go along with this time of month. If you deal with dysphoria, chronic pain or mental illness symptoms, those can be worsened by a period as well. So basically if you feel upset, uncomfy or downright miserable I’m hoping there’ll be something here that can help you feel a little better <3


- Remember that when you’re on your period you actually burn more calories than normal, so you may need to eat a bit more than usual. If you feel hungry, don’t feel bad about eating some food, your body needs fuel! Remember to try and stay away from overly salty foods and junk food because they can make cramps worse. A great little snack would be cut up fruits and veggies or some crackers with peanut butter :)

- Drink lots of fluids! You need to stay hydrated, so make sure you’re drinking lots. Water, milk and juice are all good ideas but stay away from drinks that are too sugary (although ginger ale may help if you have nausea, ginger tea is probably a safer bet). If it helps, put your drink in a cute bottle or sippie!

- You may feel like doing nothing more than curling in a ball with your stuffies, but if you can do it, exercise really helps! If you feel up to doing a little bit of exercise that’s great, but if it’s more than you can manage don’t feel bad about that <3 Self care means doing what’s best for you and if exercising is going to make you feel worse or cause you more pain/discomfort you should never feel pressured into it (that goes for everything on this list, please don’t feel I’m telling you to do anything you don’t feel up to <3)

- Painkillers are super helpful! Make sure you remember how many you’ve taken/when you took them so you don’t take too many by accident. If you’re worried about keeping track, ask a caregiver, friend, family member, or anyone you feel comfortable asking for help. If you can’t take painkillers because of meds you take, an allergy or for any other reason, peppermint tea is sometimes used by people to help with muscle pain so you can give that a try, and ginger tea is good for nausea :)

- Heat! This is what helps me the most. A warm bath (with some nice fluffy bubbles or a bath bomb if you want) can really help with the cramps and muscle aches that come with a period, and a nice hot shower will work wonders too (I find they also just make me feel less icky on my period even when my cramps are done). A hot water bottle, heating pad or one of those cute microwaveable stuffies can also be a blessing for a sore, achey little. And hot tea or soup are wonderful as well, just avoid coffee because the high caffeine level can make symptoms worse.

- Distract yourself from your discomfort by doing something you enjoy <3 I watch a lot of cute shows during my period because my anxiety spikes a lot and I find them really calming. If you’re behind on a show or never watched that movie you wanted to, now might be a good time! You can also listen to calming music, draw, anything that will make you happy :)

- Don’t be afraid to seek reassurance! My caregiver gets a lot of texts around this time of month starting with something like “I can’t tell if I should actually be worried or if I’m overreacting” xD If your moods get messed up by your period you may feel more stressed, sad, angry, etc. than you would usually and that’s ok <3 If you need to ask your caregiver, friend, etc. for some reminders that they love you or that everything is ok, that’s not something to feel bad about!


Hopefully this list was useful to someone, and if you ever feel upset for any reason (not just period related xD) please know that you can message me at any time and I will do my best to help <3 Also if you think I said something wrong in this list, please let me know! Some of it was researched but some of it was just what helps me so if I said anything wildly incorrect I would really like to know so I can fix it :)

The night before her birthday she packed an overnight back and headed to Salim’s. He was already preparing dinner when she arrived.

“Hi,” she greeted him, leaning over his shoulder as he chopped onions and kissing him on the cheek. “What’re you making?”

Salim instantly dropped the knife onto the cutting board and spun around grab Ryleigh and pulled her in to kiss her. When he finally leaned back he was grinning at the look of surprise on her face.

“Hi,” he smiled back. “I realised this morning that I have no idea what your favourite food is so I’m making you my speciality, lamb.”

“Ooh sound delicious,” she returned his smile. “And spaghetti.”

“Huh?” Salim frowned.

“Spaghetti,” Ryleigh laughed. “Spaghetti is my favourite.”

“Oh! Well then I’ll make you spaghetti for lunch tomorrow,” he nodded decisively. “Tonight you’ll have to make do with lamb.”

“I’m sure the lamb will be amazing,” she shook her head in amusement. “And you don’t have to make spaghetti tomorrow, it’s not a big deal.”

“Nonsense it’s your birthday weekend,” he stepped back, grasping her fingers and bending forward in an extravagant bow to kiss the back of her hand. “For the next few days I am you loyal servant, milady!”

Walking around Ben Thanh Market in Ho Chi Minh City yesterday, a woman with a stack of baguettes and big boiling pot of meatballs caught my eye. The smell coming from the stand was just amazing! In my mind, I was about to have the greatest meatball sub ever, Vietnamese style.

However, when I sat down and ordered, the woman simply brought me one meatball in a bowl and an uncut roll.

Immediately sensing my confusion, she offered assistance, slicing open the baguette, putting in the lone meatball, smashing it into a paste and smearing it inside the bread, then dumping the rest of the contents of the bowl on top of that.

So I got my delicious meatball sub, just not the way I’d imagined it.

My food education continues.

First picture is from Connichi, the others are from FBM

I don’t know what to say, both conventions were amazing, so many Servamp Cosplayers *A* I’m not used to that. It was rainy and cold, but the One And Only and the others couldn’t be stopped by this!
Finally I can show you some photos, though I couldn’t catch everyone. I’m very happy I could take a photo with big sis wrath! Brother Gluttony was there as well! (But he disappeared too fast, probably searching for food…)

Yupp, Lawless had fun!

Living with Holtzmann

A/N: Here’s living with Holtz! Let me know if you have any suggestions xx

Warnings: None

Word count: 366

·         All the clothes sharing

·         You literally just have one massive wardrobe

·         A wall of ties and headscarves

·         Moving in because Holtz kept forgetting to eat and sleep

·         Her setting you on fire within the first day

·         Banning her from the kitchen after she set the microwave on fire

·         Falling over some form of tool or invention every five minutes

·         Her having mass amounts of snack foods in every room

·         Shopping with her being the most impossible task

·         Trying to tell her pop tarts and cold pizza aren’t actual forms of breakfast

·         She doesn’t listen and gets you into the habit as well

·         Having to have wooden floors because the carpet was burnt to pieces

·         The most immense book collection ever

·         You two have what looks like a small library

·         As well as books you have an amazing music collection

·         So many records, cassettes and CD’s everywhere

·         All the polaroid’s

·         You two would take so many pictures on a slightly modified polaroid camera

·         Your neighbours hate you so much

·         Once Holtzmann accidently spilt some chemicals which caused the whole building to evacuate

·         One day you come home from work to find Holtzmann with a cat

·         She found it behind an Italian restaurant eating all the leftover food ( ;) ) while dumpster diving

·         You end up keeping it

·         Patty often has to cat sit while Holtzmann is making something with nuclear qualities

·         Your apartment becoming the ultimate crash zone for the ghostbusters after a bust

·         You end up having clothes for all the girls and occasionally Kevin

·         You make blanket and pillow forts so often there’s now a permanent one because ‘The sofa is boring’ according to Holtz

·         Your bedroom being the messiest but prettiest place in the universe

·         Fairy lights everywhere

·         Old film posters on every wall

·         Probably burn marks too

·         Let’s not lie, Holtz probably has those glow in the dark stars on her ceiling

·         There’s always music playing, it’s never quiet

·         So many scented candles

·         They have to be scented because the place smells like a factory

·         A massive stack of obscure board games

·         Holtz would get so into them and be so competitive

·         Literally the most fun household you could ever come accross

Well, I don’t like drawing food. There are many things I am not good at drawing… Like that table. It’s going to tip over cuz it’s lopsided. XD

Anyway, more combining of prompts.

Fancy Dinner Date. I imagine that this is like their Christmas Date, per Hanzo’s request.

Also, Thank you @dragoocchi for the kind words and lovely compliments! I’m trying my hardest to spread the Healing Arrow love! <3

Thank you to everyone for being so patient with me as I slowly get through the rest of the prompts.

Edit: I was going to give Angela a long dress because it suits her graceful and elegant form. BUT… I wanted to draw that footsie going on under the table. I suppose I could have just given her a dress with side slits (reminiscent of her default skin…), but OH WELL. Hindsight is 20/20.

25 Days of Klaroline + Mafia

This mini drabble is dedicated to Mik - @queencarolinemikaelson  my fellow Aussie and such a great person to talk to, especially about politics. Thanks for the beautiful fic covers you’ve done for me as well. You are one talented lady : ) Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you have an amazing day full of fun, laughter, food and cake (most importantly).

Killing in the Name

It’s no secret that Chicago mob boss Bill Forbes has enemies but after an attempted assassination he appoints a team of bodyguards for his family, including one Klaus Mikaelson who has been assigned exclusively to protect his wayward daughter Caroline.

The Violet Hour - Wicker Park, Chicago IL

“You scaled the roof, really Caroline?”

“Well, I would have climbed down the tree next to my bedroom window but after you caught me father saw that it was quickly chopped down,” she scowled, taking a large sip of her cocktail and rolling her eyes in Katherine’s direction at his predictable interrogation.

“I thought it was ingenious myself,” Katherine offered before he could continue with his lecture.

“Did I tell you how much I have you to thank for aiding and abetting my protective charge?”

“You’re more than welcome,” she smiled, devilishly. “Glad I could be of assistance.”

“Well on that sarcastic note, let’s go, Houdini,” he gestured towards the door.

“I just got here,” she scoffed. “You know if I didn’t have to climb onto the roof in my high heels and a miniskirt, I might add, I would have been here a lot sooner.”

Klaus closed his eyes momentarily, trying to erase the visual of her climbing onto the roof in such a short skirt, especially one that exposed her long, creamy legs and hugged her taut ass that wiggled when she walked. It wasn’t the first time he’d had to rid himself of such images and Klaus knew it wouldn’t be the last. The one thing he knew was that Caroline bloody Forbes would be the end of him.

When his brother and company owner Elijah had given him this assignment he knew it would be somewhat difficult. Klaus assumed though it would be because of Bill Forbes and not his rebellious daughter, Caroline, who didn’t take too kindly to forced protection, in fact she despised it which would explain her constant attempts to escape. Most of the time she’d failed, Klaus too good at his job for that to happen but lately she’d become more original and sneaky and slipped through his grasp. If he was being honest there was another reason and that was his burgeoning attraction but he was trying to ignore that fact. It was something Klaus knew Elijah wouldn’t be happy about, especially given the exorbitant amount of money Bill Forbes was shelling out for their services.

“Do I look like I care, Princess?”

“Do I look like I do?” She shot back, her blue eyes never wavering from his. Klaus considered himself scary when he needed to be but she refused to cower, no doubt something that came with being the only daughter of a mob boss. While it was annoying, but also strangely admirable, Klaus knew her stubbornness would get her killed if she wasn’t careful.
