I rode my bike to the forest yesterday to meet my friends the boars (they are my favourite animals and they always come to the fence so that I can stroke them, they are so cute and nice and meeting them makes me so happy!) I‘m also preparing for the next semester by already creating studying sheets for clinical psychology :) the last photo shows the first weekly spread from september (when I saw Angela Merkel :D) I‘m visiting my family today which means that I‘ll also see my dog and I can‘t wait to cuddle her again 💛

just-2-easy  asked:

Do you have any room decor ideas that you could make with things lying around the house? xx

First things first:

I love questions like this!! 

I’m not sure specifically on what kind of stuff you may be into (Are you into nature stuff, or maybe vintage aesthetics? Or maybe you really like pastels? Or maybe you host some macabre sentiments?), so I’ve compiled together here a variety of room decor tutorials! Hopefully one of these might fit your fancy! (And as always, feel free to ask again! Let me know what you’d like different!)

Check out my TAGS page to discover more!

DIY Geometric Photo Display

Nails or tacks, some string (in the colour of your choice!), and some bulldog clips (or paperclips, again, in the colour of your choice!). Hang up photos of your family, friends, places you might want to travel to, wish list items, your favourite characters! OOoor inspirational quotes! Recipes! Cute puppies! So many options!!

DIY Erasable Boards

Maybe you have some unused frames lying about? Or a photo that needs liberating? Maybe some pretty paper? Or make your own pretty paper (watercolours, marbling, découpage, etc).

DIY Found Moss Terrarium

Maybe you’d like to bring nature into your room? Can’t say that you’d be able to find the items needed lying around in the house…but maybe literally around the house. 

Grab a bag, head outside, and collect the ingredients above! (The activated charcoal is not necessary if you don’t have that in your collection!) The full tutorial is incredibly helpful, so please do go check it out in all its entirety.

DIY Tape Picture Frames

Okay, so maybe you can’t poke a bunch of holes into your walls (or maybe you don’t want to!), but you’re still looking to display some pics. Maybe you have washi tapes laying about the house. 

No washi tape? Decorating masking tape is another option!

Dating Tom Holland, Halloween Edition:
  • Okay but Tom seriously loves Halloween, like he goes all out for it

  • He’s always sending you costume ideas for couples. Jasmine and Aladdin, Mermaidman and Barnacleboy are just a few example.

  • “Babe, we’re not dressing as Mickey & Minney again”

  • “But that was adorable!” “Okay darling, I’ve got it… Spiderman and Mary Jane”

  • Decorating the outside of the house with cheesy Halloween decorations, Paddy even helps with them

  • That boy thinks he’s sneaky, but you just know when he’s been into the candy jar

  • Binge watching Halloween movies, You prefer the scarier ones while Toms a softie and enjoys the classic disney movies like Twitches and Halloween Town

  • He likes to pretend that you’re the one that can’t handle it but Harrison, Sam etc all know it’s him

  • You were squeezing my hand so hard throughout that movie!”

  • “No Tom, that was you”

  • You always top up on his favourite Halloween snacks (like candy corn) because as soon as it hits Halloween, they’re all he talks about

  • Going on cool Halloween themed dates like Horror mazes, Corn fields and Pumpkin Patches

  • And yes, you definitely do pumpkin carving together

  • “I think it’s meant to be a bat… why does it look like a blob?”

  • Both wearing festive sweaters and socks around the house

  • Tom demanding that you get Harry to take photos of you two in your Halloween costumes for memory purposes

  • He for sure gets the best ones printed and placed around the house (+ a few go on instagram) 

  • Festive baking, the house constantly smells like cinnamon rolls, apple pie or pumpkin spice


  • While experimenting with Halloween costumes, came a whole lot of teasing
  • Tom could barely hold himself back when he saw you in one of your costumes, his hands didn’t leave your body once that night
  • “C'mon darling, how do you expect me to wait until we get home? You look so goddamn amazing”
  • The amount of cheeky kisses he places on your neck and other exposed areas of skin before you even got home was probably a bit much, but you adored it nonetheless
  • He practically rips the clothing off of you, but the promise of breakfast in bed as an apology is enough to silence your complaints
  • “Tom, are you kidding me? You couldn’t have spared the lace?”
  • “How does Pumpkin shaped pancakes sound tomorrow morning?”
  • Lets just say it was a good night. One that left your neck covered in purple blotches

“what is up guys and welcome back to another video.”

to say that filming this video was going to be awkward, was an understatement. i was currently seated in the bedroom of my ex boyfriend, simon, filming one of the most awkward and uncomfortable videos to ever be filmed and put on the internet.

“today i’m here with a very special guest.” he stated before looking over at me.

“hi, its (y/n).” i introduced quietly.

the both of us paused awkwardly, letting the silence over take the atmosphere. the silence was broken but simon clearing his throat before he began to speak again. 

“and today we’re making a video to clear the air and to just… reminisce about the past and yeah.” 

i nodded along in agreement before taking over. 

“so basically, we’re going to have a ‘lightening round’ in which i’m going to ask some questions in the space of one minute that he has to answer. and then were gonna hop under the cover, cuddle a little and reminisce the good old days.” i explained, anxiously twiddling my thumbs around each other.

as i took my phone out of my back pocket, i could feel simon glancing at me. 

“are you sure you’re okay with this?” he asked, eyebrows raised.

i simply nodded in response, watching him take his own phone out. i brought up; the questions i had written down earlier, waiting for him to start the timer.

“right, so i have around 12 questions.” i said to the camera, “so lets see how many we manage to get through and how many you can get right.” i smiled, licking my lips before Simon started the timer.

“right, what was my favourite flavour of ice cream?”

“chocolate.” he asnwered confidently.

“okay, settle down with the cockiness.” i teased. “what was the name of the plush pup you bought for me for out 8 month anniversary?”

simon stopped to think for a moment before a blank expression drew acorss his face. he’d forgotten.

i scoffed slightly, cocking my eyebrow as i looked at him. 

“it wasn’t even that long ago.” i said, tapping my phone impatiently. 

he looked slightly guilty, never the less he answered incorrectly. 

“nope, when’s my birthday.” i continued.

“oh thats an easy one. (y/b/d).”

the questions continued until the one minute timer went off, signalling to stop asking questions. 

“well, to say the least you did shit.” i laughed, looking up at him before realising he was already smiling down at me. my breath hitched in my throat, quickly looking away and hopping up from the couch. i could feel the heat rushing to my cheeks, turning to look over at his bed. 

simon picked up the tripod, fixing it to ange at him bed. i hopped onto his bed and slid under the covers, snuggling into the mattress. simon hit record before hopping in behind me and spooning.

“this was always our favourite position.” he whispered cheekily, causing me to gasp and turn my body a little bit to hit his shoulder. 

simon took the lead this time, explaining that we were now going to look through old photos and talk about why we broke up.

“althought most of you already know why we broke up, for those of you that dont, we broke up due to some rumours and shit that was going on. and the both of our schedules weren’t matching so we called a quits.” he explained. 

my heart sunk,i had almost forgotten why we had broken up. i can remember the day so clearly.

simon pulled up some photos on his tv screen, flicking through them with the remote.

“i remember that day!” i squealed, a large smile spread across my face. “that was the day you fake proposed to me just to get free desserts.” i laughed, his shortly following mine. 

“and then later we got free movie vouchers as an ‘engagement gift.’“ he continued. 

just as i looked up at him he looked down at me. his eyes flickered from mine to then my lips. 

“please kiss me.”

description: a sunset beach walk after phil’s thirtieth birthday brings talk of things to come and decisions they figure they need to discuss. plus there’s this metaphor about the sunset.

yin and yang; light and dark, day and night - two opposites that are made to be together.

“I think you’d be a sunrise,” Phil says.

Dan quirks an eyebrow and prompts him to elaborate. “I’m all gloom and darkness, I’m definitely a three am sky.”

Phil frowns. “Maybe, but you’d be scattered with stars. And you’d be five in the morning, not three, the sun would be just about ready to rise. There is some light in you, Dan.”

I think I have a favourite book series of 2016. I’m equally surprised considering how bad I am at picking favourites, but I loved reading this colourful duology by Renée Ahdieh: 

“It’s never been a question of who is going to let me behave a certain way; it’s always been a question of who is going to stop me.”
The Wrath & The Dawn

“Your future is not set in stone, my dearest star. A coin turns on itself a number of times before it lands.”
The Rose & The Dagger

My photos don’t do the covers justice; their prettiness is huggable!

last semester’s biochem notes turned out so pretty that i’m glad i’m actually using them again!

june study challenge day 5: june 5th is world environment day! what’s your favorite part of nature? i’ve always loved forests. the first picture is a photo my mom took almost a year ago from my favourite part of my island. i love the quiet and the trees and i’ve always been fascinated with fairytales and magical woodland creatures.

anonymous asked:

I was going to say I'd love to have you show me your collection of books on mythology and cults and cosmic horror but then I realized- You kind of can do that. Do you have any book recs of the non-Lovecraft Lovecraftian sort?

Okay so I pulled some of my favourite things off my bookshelf which I think might appeal to people interested in Lovecraft. I tend to veer towards the more gothic of his tales so that’s what this collection reflects. There is a mixture of fiction and non fiction here so I hope this is useful!! 

1. The Hell-Fire Clubs by Evelyn Lord

A History of devil worshipping cults in the British Isles which supposedly operated from about the 16th-19th centuries. 

2. America Bewitched by Owen Davies

A history of witchcraft in America after the salem witch trials, really interesting to see how that initial incident affected the later ‘outbreaks’. 

3. Primitive Mythology by Joseph Campbell 

This is part one in a series of texts about the impact of mythology on the psychology/culture/identity of the human race. It reminds me a lot of the ideas Lovecraft explores about the idea of an ingrained fear that has been passed down through generations. 

4. The Devil Within by Brian Levak 

The best history of exorcism I have read, worth pointing out that is does only focus on Western history/concepts. 

5. Vampyres by Christopher Frayling 

Super comprehensive and very literary based, actually a really good reference text for people studying the gothic in any capacity. A social and anthropological history of the Vampyre in popular culture. 

6/7. The Blake and Avery Detective Series by M.J Carter 

Victorian detective series full of satanic cults, weird witch doctors, ancient symbolism and gruesome murders. 

8. Heavenly Bodies by Paul Koudounaris 

I have been obsessed with the Catholic practice of decorating the bodies of saints for ages and this is the definitive book on the subject. Full of gorgeous, fascinating photos and lots of insights into the ritual behind it all. 

9. This Way Madness Lies by Mike Jay 

A really well illustrated and gorgeously presented history of Bedlam in London. Any publication put out by the Wellcome Collection is always worth the money. 

10/11/12. The Annihilation Trilogy by Jeff Vandemeer 

My favourite weird fiction trilogy ever. Worth reading Annihilation on it’s own even if you don’t pick up the other two. Sort of like At the Mountains of Madness meets The X Files meets Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Also a nearly all female cast of characters. 

13. Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente

I’m an absolute sucker for things based on Russian Folklore and this is a bizarre fever dream of a narrative which never quite makes sense but the prose is insanely gorgeous. 

14. Satantango by Laszlo Kraszahorkai 

One to pick up if you like the Lovecraft stories like Dreams in the Witch House, The Colour out of Space and The Cats of Ulthar. Follows the impact of a group of uncanny individuals whose appearance in a rural town causes a slow descent into chaos. 

15. Moon Over Soho (The Rivers of London series) by Ben Aaronovitch 

The Rivers of London series is dark, funny and perfect as a light hearted monsters, girls and ghosts read. I love them because they are set around where I live which is always fun. 

16. The Wolves of London by Mark Morris 

Weirdly this series was released around the same time as the above one but has a much more overt Lovecraftian tone to it. I prefer the ideas and the bleakness of this series but the writing style of Aaronovitch. 

16. Q by Luther Blissett 

Tonally quite similar to Lovecraft’s work. It’s dense but worth the read if you can get through it as it’s a maze of religious fever, manic peasant revolts and political upheaval. 

17. The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley 

One of my favourite books of the last year. Deeply unsettling and an amazing blend of supernatural and domestic horror where you can never tell who is reliable. 

18. Thin Air by Michelle Paver 

Perfect for fans of Algernon Blackwood, M.J James and all those wonderful classic ghost writers. Genuinely frightening with an excellent payoff. 

19/20/21. Harrow County by Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook 

Probably visually the most Lovecraftian of this list. A classic tale of supernatural happenings in an isolated rural area but the illustrations and creature designs are some of the most beautiful and horrifying I’ve ever seen. 

Not pictured because I couldn’t find my copy of it is Kraken by China Miéville which starts with a giant embalmed squid being stolen from the Natural History Museum and explodes into a story of cults, magical books, sea monsters and a chilling use of origami. 

I’m also half way through Là-Bas, by J.K Huysmans which follows a young man who becomes obsessed with Gilles de Rais and eventually pursues satanism in turn of the century France. It’s a morbid delight and the love story at it’s centre will really appeal to people who aren’t normally into that aspect of the narrative. Who doesn’t want to go to a black mass with your lover? 

Dating Poly!Kaistal

  • let’s begin with how this whole thing started, shall we??
  • ok, so there had been a bit of back and forth flirting between you and kai but also you and krystal
  • and you had noticed them flirting too
  • you became close with krystal first. and at the same time, she was growing close to kai
  • then you three started hanging out a lot
  • the friendship started to change when you were all talking one evening, just about random shit and you can’t remember who brought the topic up
  • but you all came to realize that none of you cared for “owning” someone
  • that as long as you loved the person/s in the relationship and they loved you (and treated you right) then who cared if you loved one or five people??
  • and krystal gave you ‘a look’
  • then kai did
  • and you all just sorta knew??
  • you started discussing more, after that, setting guidlines and boundaries and just admitting what you were all comfortable with
  • from that moment, you three were a thing and that was that
  • the media only know of krystal and kai’s relationship, which they worried about at first. they didn’t want you to feel excluded, or less loved
  • but you didn’t,,
  • if anything, you were glad not to be under media scrutiny
  • but your close friends and family knew about it
  • not everyone understood but you were fine with that. you’d expected it too. poly relationships were looked down, had negative stereotypes but as long as everyone was an understanding, mature adult, then you didn’t quiet see the problem
  • but ppl will be ppl
  • and ppl love to judge
  • oh, going back to when krystal gave you ‘a look,,’
  • well, your relationship consists of a lot of ‘looks’
  • you three are so in sync with each others thoughts and emotions that words aren’t even needed; just one look and you know what the other is trying to convey
  • krystal was more reserved with skinship at first, unless either you or kai initiated it. but as time went on, she no longer shied away from jumping on your back or resting her head on kai’s shoulder
  • kai is less reserved tho. he just loves to show affection and make his loved ones smile. so he’s always cuddling against you or playing with krystal’s long hair. you two have braided it so many times that you’re her “personal hairdressers”
  • you all have so many beauty and hair care products that are neatly arranged in the bathroom. and the house is orderly too (don’t want the dogs chewing on some toxic hair bleach, you know?? :/) but with touches of all three of you
  • there’s artsy paintings, photos and plants, that krystal likes to explain the meaning of (”xxx is my favourite photographer and actually-” “those flowers, in ancient times, were given as a sign of peace and good will”). and kai has countless movies stacked up that he swears are good but aren’t :/ and your things are there too; that birthday ornament from your grandmother and the godawful graduation photo that kai & krystal swear is so cute but you think you look bad in it :/
  • oh, there’s lots of dog things too; toys, food, products, etc
  • kai’s three dogs get so much love and attention,, lucky buggers ;3;
  • his kisses are distinctly different to krystal’s, in the best way possible
  • her kisses and light and feathery, leave you craving more. while kai is more powerful, pressing passionate kisses to your lips that leave you breathless and dizzy
  • you love coming home to them cuddled on the couch, making space for you to squeeze in the middle. krystal will drape her favourite blanket over your legs and offer you a bite of her snack, while brushing away your hair;
  • “so, how was your day?”
  • those are the times when you all de-stress; kai talks about exo problems, krystal wonders where tf f(x)’s comeback is, and you rant too. you all leave that couch feeling a lot better
  • or don’t leave, since you’ve fallen asleep while talking many times
  • you all talk a lot, tbh
  • there’s just such a sense of comfort and warmth from each other, that you all can talk freely without worry. your relationship is a judgement free zone. so sometimes you ramble on about stupid things or about deep seethed things you didn’t even know were bothering you until you realize it’s 2 am and you’re still ranting about something from your childhood
  • krystal is mostly in charge of cooking, although you and kai try to help. but your food never tastes as good as hers somehow??
  • “is the special ingredient love?” kai teases
  • she scoffs, “you’re so gross and cheesy!” it actually is tho but don’t tell anyone or it’ll ruin her image
  • ok but on a serious note, like all relationships, fights can occur
  • and it’s the worst feeling ever if you feel all alone and like they’re teaming up,, but it doesn’t take long for someone to come to their senses
  • usually kai tbh
  • krystal is stubborn and as he’s hyper aware of you possibly feeling like the odd one out (since the media knows about them) so it’s him that 99% of the time, forces everyone to come together and talk it out
  • which usually results in makeup sex so ;) ;) there’s a happy ending at least
  • overall, there’s just so much security in this relationship. you’re all trusting and feel comfortable to just be yourselves. in your own privacy, you’re all free to be who you are and love who you want. and that’s something that no amount of judgmental scorn can take away

Exactly one year ago today I saw ATL live. Seeing them again in a week. I’m happy.
