✨ Ingredients and Supplies
• 1 cup baking soda
• ½ cup citric acid
• ½ cup Epsom salts
• 1 tsp. water
• 2 tsp. rose essential oil
• 2 tsp. hibiscus essential oil
• 1 tsp. mint essential oil
• 3 tsp. oil (olive oil)
• Rose petals, chamomile petals, and lavender petals
• Red and purple food coloring (you can make separate batches if you want to layer your molds)
• bath bomb mold (any mold)
✨ Mix Ingredients
1. Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix them all evenly with the whisk.
2. In a separate container, mix the liquid ingredients together: rose essential oil, lavender essential oil, mint essential oil, olive oil, food coloring drops
3. Slowly add the liquid mixture to the dry mix, one small spoon at a time.
4. Add in your flower petals and gently mix.
5. When well mixed, you simply pack this into a bath bomb mold and pack tightly, then let it dry.
• You can combine other ingredients with rose - it’s sort of the go-to for bath bombs and pairs well with various other flowers and fragrances.
• Remember that you’ll want to work quickly enough to avoid your mixture from drying out prior to packing in your molds.
• Every time I have used this bath bomb I have considered it an opportunity to reflect on my strengths and accomplishments; I take this time to remind myself of my beauty. Self love and appreciation are very important!
• Including candles and crystals during your bath can help boost your session. Treat yourself! Take this time to relax and slow down.

The woman slept for the rest of the day and through the night. Steve wanted to stay close in case she woke up suddenly but Bruce said it would be a while. She was completely exhausted from whatever ordeal she had gone through. Still, Steve was hesitant to leave and ended up bringing a laptop and his files into her room and started working on his mission reports while she slept. He caught a couple hours of sleep in the chair but mostly just watched over her, thankful for super solider cells that don’t need the regeneration sleep provides on a regular basis.
The next morning, he was sipping a cup of coffee that Nat had brought him, when her eyes fluttered open. She turned and stared at him, not showing as much fear as before, but still had a wariness in her eyes.
There’s a keurig (donated by a muggleborn, of course) in the common room with a magically self-replenishing supply of every k-cup flavor you can imagine because caffeine makes up 85% of a Ravenclaw’s blood

Ravenclaws who run studyblrs
Ravenclaws organising study groups and group chats for homework help
Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs teaching Slytherins and Gryffindors about self care because some of them perceive struggling with depression/anxiety/mental illness as being weak but those Hufflepuffs and Ravenclaws will have none of it and want their friends to be their happiest, healthiest, and best selves
new paintings/sculptures/art by Ravenclaws being featured throughout the common room every month so everyone can see how creative and wonderful their housemates are
Ravenclaws getting really existential/philosophical and their friends from other houses just going “what the fuck man i just wanna play exploding snap with you and now i feel like a speck of dust floating in the void”
Ravenclaws getting really heated when someone says they don’t believe in climate change/evolution or that they’re not a feminist or that they think reverse racism is real and their friends have to drag them back while they’re hissing, “ hhhhHHHH i haVE A FUCKING POWER POINT FOR THIS LET ME EDUCATE THIS THICK MOTHERFUCKER”
Ravenclaws who experience some kind of privilege their friend does not and absolutely SEETHING when they’re out with their best mate and someone says/does something discriminatory against said perfect angel best friend who is way cooler than your racist/homophobic/sexist/ableist/bigoted ass.
“what do you mean not every episode of bill nye the science guy is on netflix?????”

Ravenclaws who r total sluts for history
Ravenclaws who r total sluts for art history

Ravenclaws going on day trips/adventures with their friends and planning out an itinerary because there’s so much to see and yes we do need to visit this obscure museum of bricks because it seems fascinating okay
Ravenclaws watching modern TV shows/movies about witches/wizards/magical beings and compiling a list of every factual inaccuracy they come across, complete with time stamps, external sources, and citations
instead of doing their fucking homework like they know they fucking should be
Ravenclaws being open to learning about new friends they make who have different political/socio-economical/religious/cultural backgrounds than them because it’s fascinating and they want to make sure they’re as aware and accepting of the diversity in the world as possible
as always, feel free to reblog and add your own! I hope you all enjoy!
Eggs Each egg has 6 grams of protein but just 72 calories. No wonder researchers at Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, found that eating eggs for breakfast (as part of a low-cal diet) helps you slim down.

“They took everything. They took her whole world. But little did they know that she found a new one in him.” (Newt x Reader)
Basically a self-insert Maze Runner fan fiction (because I’m obsessed and absolute trash haha) but formatted as an Imagine for more to enjoy! This is also Newt x Reader by the way! <3
A/N : This is the story I’m talking about and I really hope you guys enjoy this!

Little personal note inserted here: Today was my 30th birthday! :D ❤ And even though I get superbly frustrated at my family sometimes for not understanding that I have Autism and I’m Asexual, I still love them so very very much and I am so blessed to have my friends as well!
They bought me some awesome presents (Sherlock Season 4, loads of candy, a journal, jewelry, cute school supplies, a cute cup, a picture for my wall and $40!) but the one the matters the most to me is their love. :3 ❤
And I love all of you, my followers, as well! You’re all awesome, special and my friends too! Much hugs and love to you all!!! 😚❤
Getting real tired of people hating on potatoes, calling them junk food, and completely ignoring that they are one of the more nutritionally dense foods out there (not to mention cheap, ubiquitous, incredibly easy to cook, and extremely versatile in their preparations).
Even a small portion, say 2 cups prepared, supplies you with 9g/20% of the recommended daily value of protein, 72g of carbs, and zero grams of fat. They’re naturally high in fiber and low in sugars. They are chock-full of an array of B vitamins:
18% RDV of B1
12% RDV of B2
30% RDV of B3
26% RDV of B5
64% RDV of B6
Plus, 24% folate, 44% vitamin C, and small amounts of vitamin A and K (both fat soluble vitamins).
In terms of minerals, potatoes are rich in copper (supplying 44% of the RDV), 20% RDV of iron, 24% RDV of magnesium, 38% RDV of manganese, 34% RDV of phosphorus, and a whopping 52% RDV of potassium.
If that’s not a health food, then I’m not sure what is. Potatoes have gotten such a bad rep because people love to smother them with butter, cheese, and other high-fat, unhealthy animal products, or they deep-fry them in oils that become denatured at such a high heat. Ditch the nasty fats and potatoes are an amazing, highly nutritious food that should be a staple in your diet!
