there is also milk in bags

I’m still high key hyped from DragFest last night.

Milk just like a plastic bag. Plastic bag. Plastic bag. Plastic bag. Milk is too damn much.

Laila doing I’m Not Okay AND Mr Brightside and I didn’t realise I was screaming so much.

Jinkx singing What About Debbie and it was so so perfect. I had to check and see if she was actually singing live because it was superb.

Local queen doing a contemporary dance number, then Alyssa, choosing to also do a contemporary dance number because she was low-key intimidated. (I would argue that Amena’s was better, but I may be biased bc I love my local queens…)

Willam riding on a hoverboard, singing about chik-fil-a with a box of KFC popcorn chicken taped to her pussy.

It was a fun night.

Chasers was so super packed though yikes i had 4 shots before I could consider the possibility of not having a panic attack. But seeing people eat Willam’s crotch chicken made it all worthwhile.

LOVE YOURSELF

- Always keep sweats, comfy shoes, makeup wipes, condoms, gum, a phone charger, a hair brush, and taxi fare in your purse/car.

- Wipe front to back

- Don’t use body washes or scrubs when cleaning your downstairs area. A little water goes a long way. Make sure to wash all around the vulva and gently get around your clitoris. USING YOUR FINGERS TO WASH IS BEST. Your vagina and vulva have natural bacteria and oils that are disrupted if you use soaps and sprays/ if you wash too harshly or excessively. They are delicate little things.

- SOAPS ALSO CAUSE VAGINAL DRYNESS

- DO NOT USE DOUCHES ever ever ever!!!

- Always pee after sex to prevent UTIs

- Coconut oil can be used for just about anything: shaving cream, moisturizer, lip balm, deep conditioner, cooking, insect repellent, makeup remover.. the list goes on. Get unrefined virgin coconut oil and you’ll smell and feel great. A little goes a long way so don’t over do it.

- EXFOLIATE at least once a week. You can buy an exfoliator at any drug store but I like to make my own but DO NOT use on your lady bits.

***1/2c coffee grinds, 2-3tbsp coconut oil, sea salt

***1 1/4c white sugar, 1/2c olive oil, 3tbsp lemon juice (good for legs, DON’T USE ON FACE OR VAGINA)

- DON’T EVER use sugar on, in, or around your vagina and try to avoid using brown sugar or hard scrubs on your face

- You can experiment a lot with your bath water and different things you can put in it. I just found some really great recipes for detox baths:

***1c ground up oatmeal, 1c epsom salts, 2tbsp lavender buds.. Mix all the ingredients and add 2-3 spoonfuls to your bath water

***1c epsom salts, ½ baking soda, 10 drops of essential oils

***1-2c milk, ½ pure honey

***Add 6-10 green tea bags to your bath water

- Essential oils in a bath are great…. Just some examples and benefits: Lavender is calming, Grapefruit is energizing, Peppermint helps with fatigue, Chamomile and Rosemary help with headaches and are also calming.

- YONI OIL by Goddess Body is amazing. It helps restore the balance of your yoni aka vagina and it is also antibacterial!!! Be careful if you’re buying from a different brand because different brands have different mixtures and some aren’t very good for you.

- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!!! Oils and oil based products break down the material in condoms which causes breaks or tears!!!!! If you plan on gettin some please do not put oils around your vagina for your own safety!!!!!!

- Face masks are great for skin health and relaxation. Some of my favourite recipes are:

***1 banana and 1tbsp honey

***Plain yogurt

***1tbsp honey and 1/2tsp each of cinnamon and nutmeg (doubles as a sweetener for Chai tea)

- Shave downward or diagonally when shaving your bikini line. USE MENS’ RAZORS. Pat dry with a cold face cloth immediately after shaving to close pores and use a non-scented lotion to prevent irritation and razor bumps.

- If you have crusty ass feet exfoliate them in the bath, pat dry then use Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream and put on socks right after. If they’re really bad, put this cream on before bed and sleep with socks on. This is especially good during cold weather.

- Make sure to moisturize every day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- When washing your hair; shampoo your roots and condition your tips.

- Don’t go to bed with you hair wet. Rub coconut oil into your scalp and brush it out before bed, wash in the morning.

- Massage your scalp with aloe vera for at least 30 seconds before you go to bed/ before you wash your hair to promote hair growth. 

- The more you touch and pick at acne the more oily your face will get.

- Dilute 1tsp of apple cider vinegar in 1c of water for a natural facial toner.

- Try to reduce your sugar intake to prevent acne and yeast infections.

- Cranberry juice works better than pineapple juice. Drink lots of this and AT LEAST 2L of water a day to keep your body healthy.

- Green/ Black tea, fruits, veggies, yogurt, and WATER all support good vaginal health and just overall body health.

- KALE IS A GOD SEND. It tastes better than spinach and you can put it in a smoothie, mix it in with your salad, bake and season it for kale chips, or just eat it as is. It’s extremely high in iron which is good if you’re anemic and get light-headed/dizzy during your time of the month. 

- Eating healthy promotes good mental health as well as physical health so keep your brain healthy too!!

If you’re needing a day to yourself, run a bath and add 1 cup of apple cider vinegar. Get a face cloth and wash yourself all over just with the bath water, especially your bizness. Apple Cider vinegar helps to restore your pH balance to keep you fresh and clean. Shave with coconut oil, exfoliate, then shave again to get all the dead skin off your legs. Scrub the dead skin off your feet and knees and elbows. Empty and rinse the tub and fill it back up with some oils or bath mixes of your choosing. Make yourself a tea or have some water near the tub. Put on a face mask and play some music or read a book or watch a show on Netflix and relax until the water is warm. Drain the water and rinse off quickly with cool water to get all the toxins and oils off your body. As soon as you get out, pat dry and lotion yourself, put on socks or slippers to keep your feet clean and then get into comfy clothes. Wear cotton underwear if you have them because they help get air to your bizzness. 

Cheap Vegan Essentials

Below is a short list of foods which I think should be in the basket of every new vegan when they go on that first vegan shopping trip. Prices will vary according to location, but in the vast majority of places these foods will be some of the cheapest items in any supermarket.  You can find a selection of simple recipes that make use of these items as their main ingredients here.

  • Rice: Rice is an extremely cheap and filling staple. A cup of rice contains roughly 45 grams of carbohydrates and 4-5 grams of protein. In an airtight container it lasts around 6 months. It is even cheaper when bought in bulk. 

  • Beans: Beans are one of the most accessible protein sources and have been a staple around the world for thousands of years. Just one cup of soybeans, for example, contains a massive 28.62 grams of protein, while even standard baked beans contain around 14 grams. They also contain lysine, which is missing from most other plant sources.

  • Chickpeas: Chickpeas can be purchased very cheaply canned, and in large bags in bulk if you’re willing to prep them yourself.  Each cup contains about 15 grams of protein, tonnes of fibre as well as magnesium and folate. 

  • Lentils: Similar to chickpeas, lentils can be bought canned or in large bags as bulk products. A cup of cooked lentils contains a massive 18 grams of protein, they also lower cholesterol, improve heart health and help stabilise blood sugar. 

  • Oats: Oats are very cheap, can be bought in bulk and have great shelf life. They are high in protein, fibre, and B12; they are even thought to help lower blood pressure and cholesterol. 

  • Cereals: Most cereals, especially supermarket’s own brand products are very cheap. Whole grain cereals like bran or oat based products are high in fiber, calcium and iron, and most are fortified with B vitamins.

  • Pasta:  Pasta is another great product to always have on hand, it is one of the least expensive items in any supermarket, can be bought in bulk and has a very long shelf life. Depending on the type, pasta can be a good source of fibre and carbohydrates; it is a high energy food and is very filling.

  • Potatoes: Potatoes are one of the cheapest foods available in most supermarkets, at an average of just $0.56 per pound. They are versatile, filling and despite their reputation as unhealthy, they are an excellent source B6 and a good source of potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, phosphorus, niacin, dietary fiber, and pantothenic acid.

  • Sweet potatoes: Sweet potatoes are as versatile as white potatoes, are high in vitamins B6, C, D, iron, magnesium and potassium. They’re also a more balanced source of energy than white potatoes, as their natural sugars release slowly, avoiding blood-sugar spikes.

  • Noodles: Many varieties of noodles are vegan, they are very cheap and last a long time. Noodles are very filling and contain high levels of B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, iron, riboflavin, and calcium.

  • Nut butters: Depending on the type, nut butters can be purchased very cheaply and in large quantities. It has a surprisingly good shelf life, is an excellent source of heart healthy fats and is very high in protein. 

  • Falafel: Falafel is usually cheap to buy pre-made but it is even cheaper when made at home just using chickpeas and spices. It is filling, can be used to make great vegan burgers and is a good source of protein, fat and soluble fibre. 

  • Hummus: Though buying pre-prepared hummus is usually relatively cheap, it is far more cost effective to make your own in larger quantities, depending on the recipe you usually only need chickpeas, tahini and  lemon. 

  • Couscous: Couscous can be great in salad or as its own side dish, it is cheap to buy and is a convenient option since it is so easy to prepare. It is a good source of lean protein, dietary fibre and B vitamins. 

  • Tofu: Tofu has an odd reputation for being expensive, quite probably among people who have never bought it. Tofu has been a Chinese staple for thousands of years, it is now widely available in supermarkets and is far cheaper than comparable animal products, averaging less than $2 per pound. It is filling and is high in both protein and calcium.

  • Tempeh: Tempeh is similar to tofu in price and use, but has a different texture and slightly different nutritional properties. The fermentation process and its retention of the whole bean give it a higher content of protein, dietary fibre and vitamins compared to tofu, as well as firmer texture and a stronger flavour

  • Seitan: Seitan is made with wheat gluten and is extremely high in protein, as well as being one of the cheapest sources of protein per dollar when made at home and is around the same price as low quality beef in stores. It has a steaky texture and is very filling.

  • Frozen fruit/vegetables: Large bags of mixed frozen vegetables can be bought extremely cheaply almost anywhere. Despite popular opinion to the contrary, frozen vegetables are almost as healthy as fresh produce since they are frozen while fresh and don’t endure the loss of nutrients associated with long travel and extended shelf time. Frozen fruit like mixed berries can be a cheap way to prepare smoothies or dessert.

  • Canned fruit/vegetables: Having a few cans of fruit or vegetables around is always a good idea, things like canned peas or corn can be a side on their own, canned peaches or orange pieces are an instant dessert and canned tomatoes can be used to make sauces. 

  • Bananas: Bananas are one of the cheapest fruits available, especially when bought in bulk and deserve a mention based on their nutritional value and their versatility. They can be used in desserts, as a healthy snack and can be used to make cheap vegan ice cream.

  • Citrus Fruits: Citrus fruits like lemon, orange and limes are cheap to buy in bunches, especially when in season and can be eaten as a healthy snack or used as a cheap way to add flavour to existing dishes. 

  • Vegetable stock: Vegetable stock is good to have around for a variety of purposes; it will add flavour to any dish from gravies to soups and roast dinners. It is extremely cheap and relatively healthy if you go for a low sodium option.

  • Olives: Olives are a healthy source of fat, they are thought to have anti-inflammatory properties and contribute to good health health, as well as being good sources of iron. They can be bought in large jars very cheaply and can be a healthy snack. 

  • Olive Oil: Thought to be the healthiest oil to cook with, it is heart healthy and can be used to add flavour to a variety of dishes like pastas and salad.

  • Spinach: Spinach is often called a super-food in terms of nutritional content, it is is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, calcium, iron and a multitude of vitamins. You can also buy large bags of pre-prepared spinach very cheaply.

  • Kale: Kale has a different flavour and texture to spinach, but has similar uses. It is a great source of dietary fibre and is packed with nutrients, vitamins, folate and magnesium. Even a 500g bag should only set you back around $2.50. 

  • Bread: Many new vegans assume bread is off limits, but many breads are vegan. Even speciality loafs are very cheap considering the amount of meals they can contribute towards, and they can be a good source of carbohydrates and protein. 

  • Plant Milks: Plant milks have an undeserved reputation for being expensive, this is only in comparison to heavily subsidised dairy milks, though even then the price is comparable, in fact, some supermarket’s own brands are even cheaper. Plant milks are packed with calcium and are usually supplemented with vitamins B6 and B12.

  • Non-Dairy Spreads: Non-dairy spreads can be made form a variety of sources, from soy or olives to coconut oil. They tend to be comparable to dairy butter in terms of calcium, but without the unhealthy fats and cholesterol. They are usually priced similarly or cheaper than their dairy counterparts.

  • Peppers: Peppers tend to be very cheap to pick up in large bags, particularly bell peppers. They can be stretched over several meals, and can add flavour and texture to curries, stir fries and salads.

  • Nutritional Yeast: Seen as something of a speciality health food, nutritional yeast is actually very cheap, lasts a long time and is one of the best sources of vitamin B12. It has a nutty, cheesy taste, so you can use it in place of anything you’d usually sprinkle cheese on. It is also great in soups and when used to make “cheesy”, creamy sauces. 

  • Flax seeds: Each tablespoon of ground flax seed contains about 1.8 grams of  omega-3s. It is included in this list as they make a great egg substitute in baking, can be sprinkled on cereal, yogurt or oatmeal. It is cheap to buy, and even a small packet lasts a long time.
     
  • Dark chocolate: Dark chocolate is not only far healthier than milk chocolate, it is usually cheaper to buy in the same quantities and is far more filling. It is versatile for use in baking and desserts and is a healthy snack in small quantities.

  • Selected Produce: Fresh vegetables are not always expensive. Seasonal vegetables are usually cheap in most supermarkets, but some vegetables like carrots, turnips, onions, cabbage and cauliflower are inexpensive all year round, and can often be bought on offer or as “irregular” (but still perfectly edible) for even less.
     
  • Herbs and Spices: Having a range of spices on hand is always a good idea; things like cumin and garlic can add depth and flavour to simple meals and they last a very long time. Investing in a good spice rack and some curry powder will save you money in the long term.

A/N: Card as in used to ride buses, subways, taxis, etc…
Happy birthday to our little man!!

Word Count: 693



Your fingers gently traced patterns into the condensation upon the carton. It was cold, clearly having been only recently bought.
Donghyuk marched into the class, his bag in hand as he teasingly pointed an accusatory finger at a classmate.

“Speak of the devil,” he hollered, several students chuckling in accord.

He placed his bag beside his desk, greeting you with a grin as he pulled out the chair beside you.

“Do you want this?”

Donghyuk’s gaze momentarily met your own before darting to the carton of strawberry milk you offered.
He was unsure, his words caught in his throat as you offered the very present he anonymously gifted you.

“It was on my desk when I came in,” you explained, “I’m just- not in the mood for it right now.”

He knew very well it had been on your desk, for he had been the one putting the dainty cartons there for the past two weeks.

“Not in the mood?”

Hesitantly, he took the carton from you.

“I lost my card this morning-” you confessed, sighing to yourself gently.

“How will you get home?”

He wore an expression of concern.

“I’ll just walk home,” you replied, lowering your voice as the bell rang and a teacher entered.

Donghyuk mulled to himself in silence, fiddling with the tab of the carton.
He could pay for the both of you to take a bus, but you didn’t exactly live near him. Walking would give him the opportunity to spend more time with you and at no cost.

“I’ll walk home with you-” he whispered as he leant closer.

You tried to hide the grin that tugged at your lips, his familiar and comforting scent tingling your senses.
The teacher turned her back to the class, sifting through a stack of documents.

“Why?”

Awkwardly, he hesitated; he hadn’t anticipated you would question his intentions.

“Can’t you be thankful that I’ll keep you company?” he scolded quietly.

You rolled your eyes, trying to hide the grin that your lips desperately tried to form, but he caught it. He smiled to himself before giving his undivided attention to the teacher as she began to speak.



The desk creaked as Donghyuk sat upon it, adjusting the black straps of his backpack. Swiftly, you slung your bag over your shoulder.
You discreetly admired how the sun shone brightly through a nearby window, bathing his golden skin and dark hair in a warm hue of radiance.

“Let’s go!”

You felt awkward, nearly nervous, as you strode alongside Donghyuk. He had been a friend for many years and had been to your home before, but today felt different. Donghyuk also felt the same sentiment, yet he was anxious.

He slowed his pace to match your own, starting small-talk about the day.

“You can stop with the strawberry milks by the way,” you interjected.

“W-What?”

Taken aback that you had caught onto him, he stuttered, halting immediately. You giggled at his frightened expression, bringing your hand up to you mouth.

“It was really sweet,” you admired, “but you’re sweet enough for me as it is-”

“You’re so cheesy!” he groaned, raising his voice to conceal the fact that his ears were burning.

“You like it,” you retorted, “You like me, right?”

He fell silent, cursing to himself in both fear and excitement.

“Yes-” he confessed, his gaze avoiding your own.

“Well, I like you too,” you admitted, “Even though you’re a loser-”

“I am not!”

He threw his arm around your shoulders, locking you in place as your feet stumbled about, your laughter filling the street.

“I was just kidding!”

He released you, his heart throbbing erratically from the contact.
Suddenly, he gave you a sincere smile, his eyes crinkling in delight.

“You like me and I like you-” he began, “What does that make us?”

“Dating?”

“Dating,” he repeated.

“You’re so cute,” you murmured, reaching out to pinch his cheek.

He deflected your hand, embracing himself.

“Ah, it really gives me goosebumps when you talk about yourself in 3rd person like that-”

You scoffed in disbelief, striding away, a wide grin playing on your lips at his words.

“Wait for me!”

Happy Monday! 🌞 My breakfast today was excellent and I’m still so full. 😅 I cooked up some oats with soya milk. 1 cup oats to 2 cups milk. Oats are low in calories and super filling (all that fibre) so I’m going to incorporate them into my diet. They are also very cheap and we have a bag of them in the cupboard, so I figure why not use them up! We need to clear out our kitchen before we move anyway. 😁 How do you like your oats? I added coconut sugar on top. So good when it’s melty!

Orzula's "Hug In A Mug" Lavender Earl Grey Tea

Hello lovelies! 💕 Today I’ll be showing you what my s/o calls a “hug in a mug”. I love to make a cup of this after a long day, for a special treat, or even just because! 

I was originally inspired by Starbucks’ London Fog Lattes. But, tbh, I think these taste way better. 

  You will need: 

  •  1 bag of your preferred Earl Grey blend 
  • Culinary grade lavender buds (If you do not grow your own, your local grocery may have it. If not, try Amazon!)
  • Vanilla extract
  • Milk (The type is up to you, but for extra oomph, try vanilla almond milk!)

🌟 Our stove is not working properly at the moment, so I have been making mine in the microwave like a pleb. I also use a separate mug than the one I intend on drinking out of, for steeping.

🌟 Place your tea bag in the mug, along with one teaspoon of lavender buds. Add just enough water to cover the tea bag and stick it in the microwave for 40-50 seconds, depending on the strength/setting you have that sucker on.

🌟 While your tea is doing its thang, in the actual mug you intend to use, pour in your milk to taste. Because I’m a lunatic, I drink mine with a shit ton of the stuff. Go nuts. Just be sure you have enough room for the actual tea. Add one or two teaspoons of vanilla extract to your milk. Again, I am a crazy person, and use two. Give it a quick whirl with a spoon to mix it together.

🌟 By this point, the tea should be ready to come out of the microwave. Be careful, your mug might be hot to the touch. I usually use ceramic mugs, so they tend to feel like Satan made them. Set it aside and cover with a paper towel to give it time to steep.

🌟 While your tea is still taking its sweet time, pop the milk/vanilla blend in the microwave. Another 40-50 seconds, folks! Once that’s done, get that glorious goodness outta there. Next is the fun part.

🌟 CAREFULLY strain your tea into the mug with milk. I’ll use a paper towel as a strainer when my actual one is dirty (Dishes? What are those?). It should catch the buds and tea bag from falling in. At this point, you can either chuck the used tea bag and lavender into recycling, or put it aside to dry out and use in future workings.

🌟 Give your tea a healthy stir, and voila! You made a hug in a mug! This drink is already pretty sweet. However, if it is not quite to your liking, feel free to throw a pinch of sugar in there.

I really hope you enjoy this drink as much as I do! If you want to get fancy and foam your milk or, I dunno, make it on a stove or with a kettle - go for it! You do you, boo boo. I just love that it’s quick, easy, and downright delicious.

To Love Somebody

Characters: CastielXReader, ft. Sam and Dean Winchester

Word Count: 3242

A/N: Castiel wants to demonstrate his love for the reader but doesn’t know how. Cue up the most adorable, awkward angel ever as he tries and repeatedly fails to show you his love. Inspired by Castiel’s utterly innocent Websummons app search in episode 12.19 of “how to fix a truck” (no spoilers) – because, you know, the internet has all the answers to life’s complex problems! Pure unadulterated Fluffy Fluff (yes, with capital Fs ‘cause Fluff is capital).


Castiel meandered aimlessly into the library, deep in contemplation, stopped up short by the edge of the glassy smooth mahogany table where Sam and Dean sat steeped in a heap of dusty lore books and Men of Letters file boxes researching the latest case.

The angel had been off his game for days – quieter than usual, less helpful, more vague, seeking solitude in the lesser used domains of the bunker, thoughts wandering again and again to the image of you he held in his mind’s eye. He’d always felt more protective toward you than to other humans, even the Winchesters - your injuries and anguish wounding him in a manner he did not understand. And like the sun, you were the brightest object in any room. He found himself perpetually staring at you, into you - the radiant warmth of your soul pleasantly tugging against his celestial being as he fought the urge to gravitate closer, his grace sparking, flaring, and blazing through his vessel like a wildfire in your company. In your absence, he still sensed and craved this all-consuming burn – the very thought of you enough to stir a tingle of heat and longing within his vessel.

Three days ago, Castiel decided what he was feeling for you could be nothing short of love itself. And now that he had named it, he was bursting at the seams to tell you. Yet his burgeoning love remained tempered with fear you would not return his feelings. He could not confess it outright, could not compromise your friendship - he would rather remain your friend than risk pushing you out of reach and be damned to exist alone in the dark forever remembering what it was like to be bathed in the reflective light of your soul.

You know the stereotypical joke of a woman’s bag having everything from mints to unwanted children and livestock inside? Well you’re a living example that this rumour was true.

You had a large bag you had with you at most times. It carried essentials like keys, wallet, phone, a pocket mirror, some basic makeup and some gum. However over time you slowly added to the contents of the bag, and it slowly got heavier, not that you noticed, and you were too busy to empty it.

The Morning After

Jinyoung x Reader
Short scenario: Fluff/implied smut (is that even a thing?)

The warmth of the sun shined against your face as it stirred you awake. You opened your eyes, regretting that you forgot to close the curtains last night, but you were a little preoccupied. Rubbing your eyes, you turned over, Jinyoung’s arms was wrapped around your waist as he laid flat on his stomach. You looked at him as he slept so peacefully. Gently you moved his tousled hair away from his eyes. Careful not to wake him, you gently made your way out of bed. You reached down to find Jinyoung’s shirt on the floor. Picking it up you slipped it on, glancing over at Jnyoung to make sure you didn’t wake him, finding your panties you quickly slipped those on too and crept out of his bedroom. You looked down the hall to see if any of the other members were awake. The rest of the apartment was quiet and you could hear faint snores coming from behind the doors of the room. You quietly tipped toe through the hallway towards the kitchen. Your stomach growled, you decided to raid the fridge to see if you could whip anything up. Just as you expected, their fridge wasn’t fully stocked. They had eggs, some vegetables, and cheese, pulling those out you decided to make an omelette. You made a mental note to yourself to go grocery shopping so you could whip up some dinners for the guys this week. You opened the cabinet, to your surprise there was a bag flour and syrup. You decided to add some pancakes to the breakfast menu so you pulled out the milk and fruits that were also in the fridge. You set the ingredients on the counter and started whipping up the batter. On the top shelf above you there was some vanilla, going up on your tip toes you reached for it.

Jinyoung leaned against the kitchen table watching you. You were wearing his tshirt that cut mid thigh on you. He watched as you reached for the vanilla, the more you tried the more the t-shirt rose up your thigh, revealing more skin little by little. Desire formed a ball in his stomach as his eyes travelled up and down you legs. He walked over to you, placing one had on your hip he reached up and grabbed the vanilla from the top shelf. “Let me help you” he said as he pressed himself into your back. You let out a little gasp as his touch surprised you.

“Good Morning” you said.

Jinyoung kissed your cheek then planted a kiss on your neck. You turned around to face him, wrapping your arms around his neck, you gave him a quick peck on the lips. He was wearing a white t-shirt and his boxers.

“Hungry?” you asked.

Jinyoung smirked, “starving” he replied as he leaned down to kiss you. Placing the vanilla on the counter behind you, he grabbed both your hips pulling you closer towards him and pressing you against the counter with his body. The kiss deepened and pace quickened, his hands travelled down your body and he inched your shirt up a little higher.

Pulling away you looked at him, “the other members could walk in” you whispered.

Jinyoung’s lips travelled to your neck, “then we better be quiet” he said planting kisses along your neck. A little moan escaped your lips and Jinyoung’s mouth found yours again to keep you quiet. He lifted you up and placed you on the counter, your legs wrapped around his waist.

“Yah, this is not what I wanted to see before breakfast.” Jb said as he walked into the kitchen.

You and Jinyoung quickly pulled away from each other, heat rising to your face from embarrassment. You quickly jumped off the counter and fixed your hair, tugging at the shirt to bring the hem down a little lower. Soon quickly after the rest of the members walked into the kitchen.

Jackson walked in and gave a little smirk to Jinyoung and you, “Well good morning you two, getting busy?” he winked. “Cooking breakfast I mean.” Snorts escaped the rest of the members as they tried to hide it.

“Yes” clearing your throat, “I’m gonna make pancakes and omelettes… as soon as I get some pants on.” quickly glancing at Jinyoung “Can I borrow some sweats?”

Jinyoung smiled, “bottom drawer” he said a little disappointed.

“Thank you,” you said as you scurried out of the kitchen.

The members stayed silent until you left, then burst out laughing as they caught Jinyoung in the act. Jackson ran over and put his arms around Jinyoung shoulders. “She’s so cute when she’s embarrassed, sexy in that t-shirt.”

Jinyoung nudged Jackson in the stomach, “I know right? I’m going to go check to see if she needs help finding those sweats.” He said as he walked out of of the kitchen and into his bedroom, shutting the door.

“Damn. I was really looking forward to pancakes” Mark said as he sat down at table.

“I’m assuming Y/N won’t be out for a while.” JB snickered as he glanced down the hall towards Jinyoung’s bedroom, “but she got the batter started, Bambam go finish the job”  

Reluctantly Bambam went to the counter and started mixing the batter again, while the other members went about their business. Unfortunately, you and Jinyoung ended up missing out on the pancakes.

anonymous asked:

Help! Can you tell me how to make a proper British tea?

why of course

step 1. boil the kettle (pour in only the amount of water you need let’s not waste and leave the poor unfortunate soul go goes to boil the kettle after you with tepid water and force them to make the decision of whether to reboil, or wastefully pour away this liquid and refill. )

step 2. whilst kettle is boiling place a tea bag in your mug (these may be English breakfast/afternoon, Irish breakfast, Yorkshire tea. note NOT EARL GREY)

step 3. right after kettle has boilt, pour the boiling water over the tea bags, filling the mug

step 4. leave to steep/brew/mash/mull/whatever other colloquialism your part of the country uses for approx. 2-5 mins depending on how you like the strength of your tea. you may occasionally stir or squeeze the tea bag against the side of the tea to get optimum tea flavour.

(step 5 and 6 are interchangeable, if you are an absolute heathen)

step 5. remove the tea bag and deposit it in the tea bag receptacle that is a regular in many British house holds, because going straight to the the bin is just too much effort, right?

step 6. milk. milk is not optional though brew novices may tell you otherwise. it also DOES NOT GO IN FIRST because they leaves the tea bag in cold milk??? revolting. (the only exception to that rule is when you are drinking out of a teacup and proper etiquette dictates one should pour the milk in beforehand. this is because the landed gentry of yesteryear would drink out of fine bone china, and the milk went in first to prevent cracking and damage. now, unless you are 67th in line to the throne and you have siblings called Araminta, Fenton and Tarquin, assume you are just drinking out of the common or garden mug and therefore, do not need to protect the £1 mug you brought from ikea so have no excuse) 

pour in as much milk as you see fit(but dont go overboard like the tragic fate of the tea lost in the Boston harbour by American revolutionaries; white tea = not good, luke warm, strange mixture) if you are unsure, there are always useful cuppa colour charts to measure your tea against. take care when pouring your milk as a few drops can be the difference between a milky brew, a classic and a builders. perhaps if you are unfamiliar with these concepts, do some background research before engaging in these difficult activities. 

optional step 7. add sugar. if you’re weak and also still a child or little old lady with a sweet tooth.

step 8. stir it all together. don’t go crazy, take the teaspoon that one day someone in the household decided would be used only for tea, that is permanently slightly stained from years of use, and stir that tea. (one should also note that when drinking out of a teacup, it is advised to stir the tea using an back and fourth motion, as opposed to the home grown circular motion as this prevents embarrassing spillages in front of the judging eyes of the aristocracy that have no doubt invited you for a splendid high tea in their country manor)

Watch your footing, he said.

Be careful going down the stairs, he reminded you.

Don’t carry more than one bag at a time, he scolded.

You were six months pregnant. You weren’t a child or handicapped. But that’s the way Dean made you feel whenever you weren’t in his direct line of sight.

And then there was his brother.

Did you take your vitamins?

Are you drinking enough milk?

Uncle Sam made you a smoothie! It’s got Kale in it, but you can’t even taste it.

It was almost enough to make you scream. You were a grown ass woman. You could take care of yourself, god damn it!

And yet, here you were, at the bottom of the stairs.

Listen to: Easy, Lucky, Free - Bright Eyes


While listening to music to try to lift your spirits, you buried yourself underneath your comforter to find a more comfortable position. The lower half of your body was hurting beyond belief and nothing seemed to soothe the pain. No matter how much medicine you took, nothing relieved the torture your body was putting you through. Wasn’t there a better way for your body to let you know that you weren’t pregnant?

It got too hot underneath the blankets so you tossed them onto the floor with a loud groan of annoyance. Just then there was a knock on your door.

“What?” You asked bluntly.

“It’s me,” a familiar voice called. “Can I come in?”

“Fine,” you replied as you sat up in bed and put a pillow over your aching stomach.

The door opened and in walked your boyfriend, Jughead. Under normal circumstances you’d be more than happy to see him but your body was trying to kill you so you just felt annoyed. It just meant that you had to entertain someone else while simultaneously trying to ease your own discomfort.

“So I wasn’t sure what movie to bring over cause you never told me what you were in the mood for so I brought a couple of choices,” he said as he held up a stack of movies. “I also brought popcorn and your favorite soda.”

You tried your best to smile naturally. “Sounds good,” you told him.
