u know whats great? that lance has honestly taught me that its okay to be a guy and care about beauty, that its not just a feminine thing and even if it was that there’s nothing wrong with that!
the only other times in movies or tv i’ve see a man wear a face mask or pamper himself is when someones using it for humor- haha look at that guy, he’s not manly at all! he must be gay! thats not something boys do!
lance enjoys pampering himself and feeling pretty and it’s not just used as joke, it’s a part of his nature and no one else points it out or scoffs at it
that just makes me really happy and honestly that precious boy has allowed me to accept certain parts of myself i didn’t at first
you can be a boy and have a beauty routine, you can take care of your skin, its a relief finally seeing that validated and i really appreciate the voltron writers for giving us this part of lance, because it’s so so important! i love him!
I’ve been seeing a lot of these posts with the same damn products on all of them and I really feel like we’re recycling the same shit and there’s nothing new to read anymore which is part of the reason I made this account, to add my own remedies and routines in hope that it could help someone else~
African black soap-
Lemme tell you right now. Ditch whatever shit you’re using as a body wash RN and go cop some (RAW) African black soap. That shit is natural and is bursting with vitamin A and E. It helps with eczema too. I personally use Alaffia which also contains Shea butter and I use it everday. Love it and love my skin+it smells super fresh
Apple cider vinegar-
Add abt ¾ of a cup of ACV to your bath and let it work its magic. Its anti fungal and battles against body odor. It makes your hair shiny and is considered a skin detox bath, I personally experience softer skin. ALSO it resets your pH and fights again vaginal odor and yeast infections naturally too.
Jojoba oil is the oil that everyone thinks coconut oil is. It is a natural moisturizer for hair and skin and it works way better than coconut oil could ever hope to do!!
Let me tell u something. In a previous post I copied a message on of my followers sent me abt coconut oil being horrible for your hair because it breaks down proteins. It got a lot of positive and negative feed back, some saying I was trying to speak for them or leave out black hair, no that is not the case. I simply copied a message and released it for public knowledge cause im here to HELP YOU NOT HURT YOU! I’m sorry if I offended anyone~ but coconut oil, regardless of hair, is not the angelic product everyones made it out to be. STOP PUTTING THAT SHIT ON YOUR SKIN IT CLOGS PORES. I use it to oil pull, its a natural way to remove the toxins from your mouth and it also whitens your teeth. You put abt a teaspoon or less of coconut oil in your mouth and swish for a minute or 2. Love that shit my teeth are so white. But other than that I wouldnt put that shit on my hair or skin, unless you’re shaving your legs or sometin. Although I do put it on my pussy after I shave and idk what i’d do without it. But coconut oil is NOT for everything.
Sorry for the extremely long coconut oil excerpt lol this one’s short. Rose water can be used as a toner/makeup setter. It controls oil and hydrates your skin. It also has antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Its also good on dry/frizzy hair
Castor oil+Vitamin E oil-
Another 2 great oils. I’m lazy and didnt want to make another 2 oil sections lol but basically castor oil can be used on eyebrows/eyelashes to thicken them. Its also a natural laxative. Vitamin E oil is a great hair/skin moisturizer and heals scars.
If you arent taking biotin everyday I want you to go to your local pharmacy and cop a bottle because beauty starts from the inside. Its a hair skin nail vitamin and boosts healthy growth of hair/nails and keeps skin healthy. I do love it.
Instead of using a typical bar of soap, invest in a charcoal one instead. Charcoal contains a powder called Binchōtan which cleanses and moisturizes skin. For all u natural bitches out there.
Also a lil side note~ for anyone who wants to comment to mine or any other ‘hoe tip’ posts saying “these are life tip not hoe tips” SHUT UP! We know! But these tips were originally for tips and products to be as sexy and well maintained as they can be. Usually before somekind of sex appointment. Let the hoes have this instead of trying to shame it
Summary:“Ohana means family. And family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.” Everyone knows that Dan is a Lester and belongs on the family holiday–well, everyone except Dan himself. However, a beautiful seaside walk and a special surprise from Martyn and Cornelia may be just the ammunition he needs to change his mind.
Warnings: Like 2 swear words but that’s it
A/N: Because we all know there was some soppy convincing needed to get Dan to stay in Florida. Inspired by this ask over @nihilist-toothpaste. I hope you enjoy!!
OKAY so at the beginning of know who you are, maui’s on his little haka-rock. the next time we see him is on te fiti’s island, when the ocean dumps him on te fiti and gives him a watery middle finger as it recedes. my question is, how did he get in the water?
possibility one is that the ocean went “hey, you abandoned moana, you’re terrible”, and just kinda kidnapped him off his tiny rock. which makes sense, because he did disrespect its chosen one. how rude, maui.
or, concept: maui swims. because moana is turning back toward te ka, the demon that is actively trying to kill her. she’s holding the heart in one hand, y’know, the homing beacon of death. she has neither a harpoon nor an oar. and maui can’t hear her. (he can’t hear her greatest weapon - her mind and her voice.)
so what does he do? this precious mortal that he left to die, about to get smote by te ka - what does he do?
he swims, of course.
back into the ocean he goes. because he knows what it’s like to be abandoned, and now he knows what it’s like to abandon, and it’s odd, swimming with hands and feet and not gills and fins and maui’s kinda bad at swimming but he does it anyway.
because he will not abandon moana again.
(and the ocean stops - thinks - maybe he does deserve to stand before te fiti. maybe he does deserve to stand next to moana once more.)
god ghost in the shell live action looks like such a horrible reminder of what cyberpunk could be if it didnt center around whites. just seeing every ad for it reminds me of all the other great asian actors they could have cast instead. what a waste of film space.
Rap/hiphop paired with dressage videos is now my newest form of anti-anxiety/depression meds.
Thank you @coltonlhaynes for bringing hilariously creative joy into my life. Though my productivity levels are decreasing in other aspects of my life, there’s a steep incline in these mixes 😂 meh, it’s nearly Friday.

I think my biggest fake science pet peeve is when tv/movies/fiction etc. uses the speed with which one got a PhD and the number of PhDs one holds as a signifier of genius, because like, science takes time, and even the smartest people take four to five years to do a (STEM) PhD, because your experiments aren’t gonna go any faster just because you have a high IQ.
And like, no one does multiple PhDs because the whole point is to train you in how to think, and how to independently become proficient in a field, so like, you could completely switch fields as a postdoc but no one’s gonna give you another degree. and doing a second phd is a waste of literally everyone’s time and money.
So like sorry every tv show ever, no one has three PhDs by the time their 23. because no one does that. we all have one by the time we’re 27 if we’re lucky and damn productive. Please stop.
