Tea Facts

Black tea

Think black tea makes you feel good? You’re right. It’s been proven to help you de-stress fast. It also helps eliminate bad breath. Plus medical research indicates that it lowers the risk of heart attacks and strokes, and reduces bad cholesterol.

Green tea

Want to stay slim, trim and beautiful? The antioxidants in green tea just might slow signs of aging, prevent the flu and raise your metabolism. More dramatically, it’s being shown to prevent and slow cancer, and help with arthritis and bad cholesterol too.

Oolong tea

This one’s known as a fat-buster in China, and science is indicating that it does indeed speed up your metabolism, burn fat and block fat absorption! Use it to fight expanding waistlines, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.

White tea

Science is saying that white tea might be more effective than even green tea at preventing cell damage, shrinking cancerous tumours and stopping the growth of cancer cells. Plus it’s becoming the new cosmetic fix for aging skin. Beautiful!

Pu’erh tea

Traditional Chinese medicine prizes Pu’erh as a wonder tea. It’s said to aid digestion, cleanse the blood and help with weight loss. Studies in Europe are also saying it busts cholesterol as effectively as some medications.

Rooibos tea

It’s said that rooibos helps you recover from hangovers, and that it could slow dementia. Plus there’s evidence that it fights skin cancer and boosts the immune system. And it’s supposed to help with insomnia!

Yerba tea

Yerba mate is a fabulous stimulant, without the jitters. It’s also full of antioxidants, so there’s scientific speculation that it could have anti-cancer properties, help stimulate the immune system and protect against disease.

Herbal tea

Herbs, spices, fruits and flowers have long been used in traditional medicine to cure everything from headaches, stomach bugs and colds to stress and insomnia. The power of the tea depends on its ingredients.

Carrie is acting and writing. I believe her best work is still ahead of her. I still kid myself that someday she may be a singer. Billie is grown up and likes to wear my old clothes-they’re ‘vintage’ now, and I never throw anything away. She just shortens the skirts. So now she has closets full of fabulous Bob Mackie gowns and classic designer outfits. It’s a thrill for me to see her in them. I pray I’ll be here to see her fly. I’ll always look after her, even if it’s in a heavenly way.

I hope taylor swift is in Paris with Lorde wearing a fabulous wig and sunglasses and amazing French fashion and all this time she’s been staying at a villa in a remote part of the French countryside as the muse of a sexy French artist who writes love poems for her and cooks her French food and pours her French wine as she wears fabulous French lingerie and writes a full length novel that will win huge literary awards under a pseudonym because that’s my dream and I don’t know what her current dreams are but I hope she’s living it

Truthful Wednesday Brain Dump

I don’t know if my heart is in this whole weight loss thing. Call it a diet or not. I mean, on the one hand I am struggling mightily with body issues of late and there are some things I’d like to improve upon. Certainly there are plenty of things that without a couple of grand and a board-certified plastic surgeon I can’t fix, so it feels sort of empowering to make the changes that are in my court. But then there is the overwhelming sense of doom (thanks, cheeto mussolini) from everyday life and I think, “Do I want to go out like this? Or do I want to be a little tipsy, full on rice pudding and wearing fabulous shoes when it all goes down?” I mean, is there a happy medium? Maybe. I’m looking for it. I just don’t want to hate myself in the meantime. And I don’t, but I don’t love myself either. I was watching this video where someone was talking about doing affirmations in the mirror and man, that is corny as shit, but maybe I need it. I don’t say half the bad stuff I think about myself out loud, but it’s there. It seeps in. Maybe it can’t hurt to add a little self-love talk. I wouldn’t think the things I think about myself about anyone, but sometimes I’m so hard on myself. But it’s hard to stay motivated on weight loss if you are thinking everything’s great. But it’s also not very motivating to tell yourself you’re fat either. The whole thing is really a pain in the ass and honestly, if someone could just remove those thoughts from my brain and let me be light and free that would be great. I find my internal monologue completely exhausting. If only it burned calories…

Don't laugh at me

Request: Omg that Loki X Reader was adorable! Could you please write a Steve X Reader about the other Avengers teasing the reader that they’ve never been kissed before and the reader gets upset and Steve comforts them and they share a kiss? Thanks, and keep up the good work!

A/N: I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS ONE!

Warnings: Language, reader has a meltdown, Steve being a lovable dork.

It was just one of those nights at the Avengers tower. All seemed well in the world, at least for now, and the Avengers all decided it would be a good night to just relax, and enjoy each others company.

And with Tony involved, that means alcohol . I, however, don’t drink. So I guess you could say I’m the ‘mom figure’ while Steve is obviously the 'dad figure’.

 

The clock just strikes 7PM, which means the party starts in one hour.

“(Y/N)! Open up, we have to make you BEAUTIFUL!” I’m jerked out of my thoughts by my best friend, Natasha.

“Coming, sweets!” I yell, and get my lazy ass off of the couch, and let her into my room.

“You callin’ me ugly, Ms. Romanoff?” I raise my eyebrows at her.

“No babe, you are probably the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen,” she grabs my face in her hands. “In fact, if I swung that way, I’d kiss you.” My face heats up. I hate talking about stuff like that.

“Right,” I change the subject. “Well, what do you have in mind, my darling?” I guess you could say I was a nervous wreck at this point, Lord knows Natasha has something up her sleeve.

“Well, we have to make you look irresistible to Captain red white and blue” I blush, Natasha and Wanda are the only ones (I hope) That know of my stupid crush on Steve. It’s not even a crush at this point, I’m full blown in love with the guy…I’ve tried everything, ignoring him, purposefully disobeying orders (of which I do NOT recommend doing, holy shit) and then having to apologize for acting a complete fool.

“Let’s go, airbags, we need to make you look hot as fuck.”

I blush at the stupid nick name, I can’t help my breasts are rather large.

 

Half an hour later, I am ready for the party, dressed in a floor length red dress with my (H/C) hair falling free, in loose curls.

“Cap will fall apart when he sees you.” Nat grins at me.

“You really think so?” I blush at the floor.

“Well if he doesn’t, someone will, I swear I’ll make it happen.” I laugh at her childishness.

“Don’t threaten anyone on my behalf, Nat, that’s not very nice.” She rolls her eyes.

“Whatever you say, babe.”

 

It’s finally 8PM which means, party time.

I shouldn’t be this nervous but Steve just makes me a nervous wreck.

We get to the bottom floor of the tower and when the elevators open, it appears the party is already in full swing.

I look to Natasha, who looks fabulous in her skin tight, knee length black dress.

“Are we late?”

“No, I’m pretty sure he said 8. Come on babe, I’ll go get you a drink.”

“No, Nat, you know I don’t drink.”

“Are you sure, you really look like you could use something to loosen up.”

I roll my eyes.

“I’m positive, Nat, thank you though.”

She nods at me,

“Whatever you say, I’m gonna go mingle.”

“You’re gonna leave me alone all night?” I whisper/shout at the same time.

“Don’t worry, (Y/N), I have a feeling you wont be alone for much longer.” She winks, and looks behind me.

My nerves are already a mess, and they just got worse.

“Good evening, (Y/N).” Steve.

I turn to look at him, suddenly wishing I had taken up Nat’s offer on a drink.

“H-Hi Steve.” He just smiles at me.

“You alright? You look a little nervous.” Yeah…because YOU make me nervous.

He has a beer in his hand, he looks a little nervous himself.

“You look amazing…” He looks me up and down.

“You don’t look half bad yourself, Cap.” I smile, a genuine smile, it’s not forced.

He does the same.

“Thanks..hey would you may–” He gets cut off by Tony’s voice over the loud speaker.

“CAN I HAVE EVERYONES ATTENTION PLEASE” Some people stop and look at him, others ignore him, still chatting up and having a good time.

“I SAID CAN I HAVE EVERYONES ATTENTION PLEASE.”

The same results.

“EVERYONE SHUT UP OR ILL SICK AIRBAGS ON YOU.” My face heats up and I hide my face in Steve’s shoulder. He looks down at me.

It gets everyones attention.

“Airbags? Who is that?” Steve asks and looks at me.

“I-It’s me…” I just want to bury myself and disappear.

“What? What does that mean?” He is genuinely confused.

“I don’t wanna talk about it.”

He respects my wishes.

“AS I WAS SAYING! WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A GAME OF TRUTH OR DARE COMMENSING AT 10PM!”

Oh God drunk Tony was a bad Tony, I can’t play truth or dare, it’ll probably end up sexual and I have no experience in that department.

I start to panic, I look to Steve.

“I-I have to go outside, I don’t feel so good all of a sudden.” He looks concerned.

“Yeah..I’ll go with you.”

We head outside and I lean on the rail, overlooking the city.

“You wanna explain what that was about? You just kind of…panicked.”

“I-It’s a long story, Steve.”

“I’ll stay with you, doll.” I smile

“Thank you Steve”

“You’re welcome.”

~TIME SKIP~

It’s now 10PM, which means game time will commence.

We gather around in the living space, me sitting next to Nat and Steve.

Tony is obviously plastered drunk, and waving a megaphone ariund.

“ALRIGHT, LET THE GAMES COMMENCE”

“TONY PUT THE MEGAPHONE AWAY!” Clint yells, and takes it from him.

 

We’re now a few rounds in, and it is Clint’s turn.

“Alright, (Y/N).” I swear I can feel my heart stop.

“Y-Yeah…?”

He smirks.

“Who was your first kiss?”

I swear my whole world collapses down ontop of me.

Steve stiffens up next to me, and Nat is smiling.

“U-Um…” I look down and play with my hands,

“Oh come on, (Y/N), it can’t be that bad.” Sam chimes in now.

“Yeah, (Y/N), just tell us.”

I take a big breath, and prepair myself for the impending humiliation.

“N-No one.”

“Wait-What?” Tony.

“You can’t be serious, (Y/N).” Bucky.

“HAHA You’ve NEVER been kissed, like ever?!? I don’t believe it!” Clint.

“Does that mean you’re a virgin??” Sam.

“Guys, lets not pester her to much okay, I’m sure theres a reason.” Oh, bless you Steve.

“(Y/N), you really haven’t been kissed? Why didn’t you tell me, you know you can tell me anything.” Natasha.

“Guys, really, I don’t think it’s that big of a dea–”

“Not that big of a deal?!” Tony starts laughing “The hell you mean it’s not a big deal? How old are you again? 24? 25? And you’ve NEVER been kissed?” I look away, the humiliation surly evident on my face. It doesn’t appear to be stopping any time soon.

“Please..please stop…” I find my self starting to tear up. Why is it such a big deal? I just never had time to…partake in such activities.

The words continue, Clint, Tony, Sam, Bucky, even Thor and Nat.

“I SAID STOP!” I find myself standing up, and shouting. That’s all I can manage before I get up and run out of the room.

“(Y/N) wai–” I’m long gone before Steve can finish his sentence.

 

“Seriously, guys? How immature can you get? No wonder she didn’t want to play, she was scared to death, and her fears came true. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.” Steve leaves, and follows me.

I lay in my room, still in my dress, sitting on my bed, wiping the tears from my face. How humiliating. Thank God for waterproof mascara.

“(Y/N)?” Steve.

“Have you come to make fun of me too, Stevie?” I can almost hear the blush that crosses his face. That nick name has always gotten him.

“You know I’d never do that to you, (Y/N). Please, can I come in?” I get up and open the door, no use in keeping him out, he never did anything wrong.

“(Y/N) listen, I’m sorry they acted like such children, you shouldn’t have to deal wi–”

“Will you kiss me, Steve?” He stares at me, in complete shock.

“W-what?”

“Please…I’m so tired of this, they’re right, I’m 24, I should have had my first kiss my now.”

“You don’t have to live up to anyones expectations but your own, (Y/N) If you’re not ready then-”

“I AM ready, Steve…and I want it to be you…I-Ive always liked you anyway…you don’t have to though…”

He smiles and comes closer, my face probably puts a tomato to shame by now.

“Are you sure, (Y/N?)” Ah, Steve. Ever the gentleman.

“Yes…” He tilts my head up to look at him, and leans down to capture my lips with his.

Theres no tongue, no heated make out session, just, a sweet, gentle, Steve Rogers kiss.

When he pulls away, he looks into my eyes.

“I’ve always kinda liked you too,  (Y/N).” I can’t control my smile, and jump into his arms.

“By the way, Sam was right you know…I am still a virgin…” Steve chokes on his own saliva I think.

“O-Oh…well..”

“Care to help with that as well?” I smirk and grab him by the collar, dragging him into my room and locking the door.

When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. ‘This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar,’ she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. 'My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’ It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions? How often had I sped past them as I learned of male achievement and men’s place in the history books? Then I read Rosalind Miles’s book 'The Women’s History of the World’ (recently republished as 'Who Cooked the Last Supper?’) and I knew I needed to look again. History is full of fabulous females who have been systematically ignored, forgotten or simply written out of the records. They’re not all saints, they’re not all geniuses, but they do deserve remembering.

Ok so, I'm gonna tell a few things about jjba's part 5 for anime only watchers

I’ll avoid spoilers and won’t be mentioning names. I’m just gonna write down some things about this part’s overall feel. Here we go…

- part 5 is dark. When i say that, its not that this jojo part is completely sad or edgy, but the story, context and situations that the characters have to face are not light hearted. It feels like the opposite of part 4 in that aspect.

- Also opposing part 4, part 5 is fast paced and extremely dynamic. There are no filler arcs. It is a heavily battle focused manga and most characters give their all in fights, risking their own lives all the way. There are no cowards in this part of jojo and all the characters oozes badassery and have “manly” moments.

- It has some of the most awesome stand battles and stand abbilities in the whole jojo franchise. And many of those battles happens on board of moving vehicles, which symbolizes the fast paced story arcs.

- none of the characters is moraly good or pure. Its not that the main crew is made of bad people, but people who won’t hesitate to do hideous things in order to achieve their goals.

- the word “resolve” and the criticism of the “ results are the only thing that matters ” are key ideas brought up in this part. Also they bring the concept that nobody is able to overcome their fate or choose their own origin, but everyone has the ability to use the time they have in this world to try and accomplish great things despite the horrifying and unavoidable destiny that awaits them in the end of the road.

- jojo part 5 has one of the best written main crew of characters in an rpg plotline of a shonen manga. Im not even kidding, they put the crusaders to shame. Speaking of stardust crusaders, vento aureo does everything sdc did but way better and in a more interesting way. The cast of villains feels deep and memorable and the main characters form a way more balanced team with better bonds, personality and backstories.

- the fights in this part are really extreme but its not only that what makes the stand fights in part 5 so memorable. Its the fact that, for the first time in jojo, both the villains and the main characters do not fear death and they wont hesitate to kill the enemy. Also, some of the most dangerous fights in this jojo part are solved with double battles, being the duo made of the main crew, the villains or both at the same time with an example of a four way battle at one point of the series.

- its in this part that araki goes full fabulous with both the characters design and their fashion. He wanted to make the characters the most androgenous and bishounen-ish possible to convey what was popular among manga readers back in the days of vento aureo’s publication. The feminine designs of the main characters form an interesting contrast with how brutal they actually are. So the characters for this part are mostly androgenous and have no chill. Also the homoerotic jokes and scenes you missed since sdc? They are back here but in contexts you would never expect.

- shit hits the fan pretty quickly in vento aureo and each arc is well tied up with the arcs before and after it. It will make vento aureo a difficult part to adapt for anime and its gonna be challenging for david production to set the pacing for the main story just right.

- araki wrote this part of jojo during a hard time of his personal life, so the dark and sad aspects of this story arc reflects his state of mind during those days. But araki revealed, years after completing this part, that he decided to write off a good chunk of the story he had planned because he couldnt get himself to draw such heavy handed scenes. He decided that he wouldnt let the characters go through all the pain he first planned to do and felt that those characters helped him overcome his emotionally broken state of mind back then.

- overall, this jojo part is really great. Dont listen to people who sounds unexcited about it and claims that part 5 is the worst one. Vento aureo is the jojo part that has suffered the most thanks to bad scans and translation. The fact that there’s still no complete well translated version of this jojo part around the web doesnt help people who read it for the first time without proper guidance. Most of the mixed opinions on part 5 comes due to bad unnoficial translations, which made this part of jojo seen as underated or even controversial by the western fandom. Vento aureo is the second most popular and beloved jojo part in japan, only second to the ever hyped stardust crusaders. If we westerns have had the experience of reading this part well translated from the begining, it would be one of the most popular among the non asian fandom as well.

- if you are an anime only watcher and will wait for a vento aureo anime to come out so you can watch it blind, i recommend that you keep in mind that this part is a wild ride. If part 4 felt like a pleasant picinic at a park, part 5 feels like a roller coaster of death. Keep that in mind and take a deep breath before starting when the anime comes out.

And now im out. Bye~

your local twink mangaka + pt2-esque fashion = very niceu i’m jussayin
