this doesn't really fit my blog but i love it

Female hair loss

Male hair loss is discussed in the media far more frequently than female hair loss. They are both pretty traumatic, but for some reason female hair loss is forgotten about. I personally have struggled with rapid hair loss over the span of a year or so and have gotten professional treatment and advice, so I feel I’m pretty qualified to give my own advice!

1. Diet, make sure you’re getting enough nutrients (especially iron, that is a big one for healthy hair)

2. Silica treatment, it comes in tablets and gel form (you mix it in water and drink) and will DRAMATICALLY change your hair (and nail!!) strength and thickness, and grow lots lots more.

3. Use really good hair products and use them in the correct way but also the best way for you. Obviously not everyone is in a position to buy super fancy expensive hair products, but try and make sure they have keratin in them, but without silicone. Try doing a hair mask every week (I do one every time I wash my hair and my hair is so silky).

4. Heat. I know its hard, but really try not to use heat products on your hair, this makes a huge difference. Make sure if you really need to use heat to use a good heat protectant product, but the thing is, most of them do not work at all. To test if your heat protectant works spray it on your wrist and then blow dry your wrist. Does it hurt? Well then it doesn’t work.

5. For the love of all that is holy, DO NOT USE HAIRSPRAY EVER OH JESUS. It’s not the hairspray that does that damage, its the getting rid of it that does, no matter how you do it it’s detrimental to your hairs health. Try using a dry shampoo or something lighter for volume.

6. If you’re going through a period of extreme hair loss you may deal with mental health/self esteem problems. For me its been about a year and a half since I started rapidly losing my hair, and most of its grown back but will never be the same. It sucks I know. For me the thing that gave me back my confidence hair wise were extensions and this magical thing called hair luxe. Hair luxe is basically makeup for your hair, it attaches to the hair folicles and beefs up every single strand of hair, its honestly life changing.

Hi steph!! First of all I really love your blog even though it distracts me from leaning for my studies. :D I wanted to ask if I am the only one who thinks the scene in TLD where Lady Smallwood gives Mycroft her number doesn't really fit in this episode? I mean it happens in the last few minutes of TLD shortly before John gets shot. And then this is never mentioned again?! Like this never happened... Why do they wrote this scene??

Hi Nonny!!

Goodness gracious, please get your studies done!! Way more important than this trash blog, LOL!

Yeah, you’re totally not the only one, Nonny. It really felt like it was just… tacked on as an afterthought. 

I feel like it was added in only to show Mycroft’s list in his notebook:

And to show the name inconsistencies with Lady Smallwood’s first name (to be fair, it could just be an easter egg pointing to their very much awareness to the name mishap)  :

Which then begs the question: What was the point if they were never going to do anything about it??

Another Chekhov’s gun to add to the pile for S4.

hey there, I know this is a gm blog , but any suggestions on playing a scholarly bookish character who by all means is out of her element in a band of wierdos and mercenaries? for context my character is a scholar/scribe in our kingmaker campaign who was " volun-told" by the sword lords to help map out the region. by all means she really doesn't fit in there, being not very proficient in combat (( though she makes up for it with magic )) and has never killed anyone... alteast until last session.

I love these kind of characters.  They give you a chance to play the role of a “normal” person thrust into the life of An Adventurer.  And the things about Adventurers is that Adventurers are freaking crazy.  They willingly (and often joyfully) take on life threatening tasks.  They tend to bump into very influential people and get involved in matters of great import to the populace.  Killing is a routine part of their job.  And, thanks to the economic systems in many roleplaying games, they often accrue mind-boggling wealth.

To put it simply, the life of an Adventurer is fantastical, terrifying and often absurd.  

This is rarely commented on, because most of the time, everyone in an adventuring party is an Adventurer, and it goes without question that they want to go on adventures.  So it’s kind of fun to play someone who doesn’t take the ridiculous lifestyle for granted.  Someone who gets freaked out by the scary and powerful challenges the party must face.  Someone who isn’t blase about earning a 1000 gold reward.  Maybe someone who gets a bit traumatized by the experience of having to kill.  

So, my advice is to have fun hamming it up and acting over-dramatic.  I think it’s fun to role-play someone with authentic emotional responses to ridiculous situations, especially in contrast to more stoic stereotypes.

BUT (and this is important) you have to keep in mind that the point of you playing this game is to join your friends in a collaborative story and adventure.  So if you want your character to go the distance in this story, you’re going to need to find a reason that they persist despite not fitting in.  That doesn’t necessarily mean they need to fundamentally change as a person, but they do need to have a motivation that overcomes all their doubts and fears and reluctance.  

Or maybe they go native and embrace the lifestyle of an Adventurer.  You can be a badass and a scholar and be proud of both.

Anyway, I hope you have a lot of fun!

I have barely watched any anime series in the last 12 months if not more, but this season looks really good ^-^

After Devilman Crybaby which ruined my life, I’m also watching Violet Evergarden (because it’s beautiful) and probably also the new Cardcaptor Sakura anime (because it’s cute, and a friend of mine really loves CS). Then there’s also Pop Team Epic, which looks hilarious, and Junji Ito Collection, which could be very interesting.

The bottom line is that I’m getting really excited about anime again, and that is pretty nice.

Hi! I'm the author of the fic "Our Impossible Baby" on asianfanfics. As much as I'm honored that someone submited my fic here, I need to be honest with the blog owners and let you know that the fic contains a scene that is really close to rape, therefore, it doesn't fit your guidelines. Thank you anyway to the person who submited it

You, my dear anon, have more integrity than anyone else in the fandom. I think aeryn and riley both cried seeing your ask. Thank you for letting us know and we appreciate your candor so much more than you know.

how do i deal with people who aren't necessarily anti-tattoo, but make me feel bad about my tattoos? like i'll be chatting about tattoos i love or tattoos i want with my family or friends, and i'll get comments about how they think its ugly or "too much" because it doesn't fit into this really mainstream look. it seems so small but that subtle shame about my mods is so hurtful, how do i overcome this?

Similarly to my other interests and/or personal rituals, there’s a tonnnnnnnnnn of stuff I just don’t talk about/conceal from my parents (and other people I interact with on a basic level.) I might not always *hide* my tattoos from my parents, but I don’t talk about them. Ever. I don’t talk about being vegan, depressed, nervous, in love, female, I don’t tell them when I travel, why I blog, etc etc. 

some people don’t deserve your interworkings. Treat your shamed interests like a hidden treasure that only you understand, and share with others like you. 

I never talk about my tattoos with normals. Ever. Sometimes people asked me “"oh what did you do in New York,” and I can almost always get away with “just visiting”; and they love that shit  

Fuck everyone’s fucking little petty input. Find satisfaction in giving people your half self.

Music could be cool but only selectively. It would have to really fit the theme a lot. Something like The Queen's Rebuke/The Crossing by The Decemberists, maybe? Not to shove my taste down your throat. I basically think if the music doesn't fit the wickedness (and the actual folklore) of your posts, it could take away from what makes the blog effective. On the other hand, the right choices might take it to the next level. Sorry if this is unhelpful?
