Stop making excuses, just do it!

It all starts with self-love!

  • Take your time to get to know yourself + find self-love. This won’t happen overnight, it’s something you need to practice, build + progress.
  • Stop beating yourself up over things you can’t help. Picking on yourself so harshly for things, overthinking + comparing yourself to people.
  • You can never be anyone but YOU. Instead of being negative about it, start working on making a better version of you. 

‘I have this vision but I just don’t know how to get there because…’

  • Stop with this immediate self-doubt. How can something come to you when you’re not ready to receive it?
  • Getting what you want out of life — you’re the only person who can make this happen for yourself!
  • Hoping, wishing, overthinking, complaining about things you don’t have yet… It’s just a waste of time.
  • Oh, but it’s impossible — Hello? Have you looked around? People are doing impossible things every day. It’s just your mindset.
  • Expand your mind to be open, understand that there are endless opportunities for yourself — that may even come unexpectedly. 
  • Push yourself, work hard + set goals — the sooner your start, the sooner you’ll get there!
  • You need to believe in your vision 100,000%. Back yourself, back your dreams, back your vision!

Setbacks + Failure

  • It’s not the end of the world.
  • We’re constantly moving forward + learning. 
  • Question things + reflect on situations WITHOUT judgment.
  • Learn from your setbacks — build + grow from them. Use them to fuel yourself + move forward.

Tips + Tricks:

  • Writing + journalling — Put your thoughts, feelings, goals, drawings + scribbles onto paper! Express yourself, reflect and be non-judgemental.
  • Self-love + care — Nourish your mind, body, soul + spirit. Push yourself to achieve greatness, but remember to take care of yourself to, on the inside and out.
  • Talk to people + listen — If you have a problem, be vulnerable! Tell someone. Listen to what people are really saying, let them inspire you + take care of them.
  • Acceptance — Accept who you are + be proud! Be open to self-development + learning. Be the best you you can be + accept others.
  • Ask questions, go further — Question yourself + situations. You won’t develop nor learn from sitting on the sidelines quietly.
  • Dream big — Make your dreams outrageous + huge! Persist, persist, persist + never give up! 
  • Never stop giving — Life is all about giving + taking, but mostly giving. Make people feel special, spread your energy, love + support!

Body and Mind Health Routine

2.6.17 006

Hey, guys here is a list of things you should be doing every day or that I highly recommend for every day. Hope you enjoy and no this isn't particularly studying stuff but it’s really important reminder or even a checklist you can go through to make sure you can do better in your work and keep your body healthy

1. Brush your teeth twice and floss every day. Just do it, it’s like 5 minutes max

2. Drink drink drink! Keep hydrated try this app called “Plant Nanny” it’s where you grow a plant and every time you need to give it water it reminds you to also drink water

3.  Workout or even walk if you can. yes your a super busy person trying to succeed in life and everything seems overwhelming but if you take at the very lease 10 minutes to go a jog you will thank me

4. Wash your face + moisturize No you don’t have to moisturize but I would highly suggest it. Keep your skin looking young and healthy

5. Eat healthy Yes, healthy food is expensive especially if your in college but try your best because even when I’m eating healthier it motivates me to get shit done not shit in front of the tv munching on some pasta

6.Take a deep breath Have some you time. Just take a few moments to breath do some meditation or yoga or listen to some music. Five minutes won’t cost you what you’ll think it will really help you

7. Don’t stare at the computer screen Every so often get up do some jumping jacks, look out a window, get the blood pumping, rest your eyes.

8. Manage your time wisely If. you. wait. till. the. very. last. moment. you. will. want. to. kill. yourself. I’ve had at least three mental breakdowns due to this and I’m learning from my mistakes. I literally started crying and couldn’t breathe in a classroom because I didn’t understand what was going on and it was due the next day.

9. Drop the negative people Trust me if they don’t hype you up about your amazing test scores, or that you shed a few pounds they are not worth it. Surround yourself with people that have the same interests as you so you can motivate each other

10. Think more positively Don’t complain as much. This one hits right at home with me because I’m always complaining no matter what and I’ve been on a minimal complaining mission. Think about all the things you can do.

 Other things that aren’t necessary but definitely nice and relaxing

1. Paint your nails

2. Take a nice bath you can do so much from relaxing to studying; bath bombs make it even better

3. Shave your legs tell me doesn’t feel amazing to get into bed with soft legs

4. Grow your eyebrows I made a little serum to help me achieve the naturally bushy but amazing eyebrow that are actually natural. Mix a bit of aloe with caster oil and a little bit of oil whether it is almond or coconut just a drop will do the trick. Just make sure it’s okay and good for you and doesn’t have any negative side effects

5. Maracuja oil is a multi-beneficial oil with a whole ton of good stuff for you. Yes, im only 14 and I don’t have wrinkle but I put that stuff all over my face and neck to help me in the future.

6. A tiny bit of makeup can go a long way. You’ve been up later studying or doing whatever or you just have dark circle under your eyes. Take a bit of orange color corrector and pat that into the skin followed by some concealer.

Flynnie stands on his tippie toes!

I’m so pleased with him for learning this trick.

When we first tried it, Flynn ended up biting me. He wobbled slightly & then… chompy chompy! At the time, I had no clue the poor baby was suffering from kidney pain, so I couldn’t understand what had upset him - obviously now it’s all too obvious that the movement must have hurt :(

I’ve only come back to the trick again fairly recently & this time, Flynn’s picking it up quickly & clearly enjoying himself!

Enchanted Sugar Waxing Tutorial

In honor of the impending holidays here in the states, we wanted to provide for you guys an alternative to shaving that has some extremely alluring pulls – sugar waxing. Some stunning factors of sugar waxing is as follows: its last 3 to 4 weeks which is worlds longer than traditional shaving, sugar wax itself only adheres to your hair as opposed to traditional wax used in salons that adheres to the skin thus making sugar waxing much more forgiving for people with a low pain tolerance. We feel obligated to tell you the cons just in case you’re on the fence; sugar waxing is pretty time consuming but the process becomes easier and faster with each use. We’d also like to make note that sugar waxing at home has a reputation for never quite working out the way you want it too. We’ve all seen it I’m sure, pretty close to the standard recipe for disaster: 2 cups of granulated, white sugar, ¼ cup of lemon juice, ¼ cup of water, heat in a sauce pan at medium-high heat ‘til golden brown and wait of the mess to ensue. Whether we’ve attempted this in the mystical hard wax method (kneading into a ball and rolling onto skin to see the hair magically disappear,) or the soft wax method which is pretty much traditional to the core (smear onto skin with a popsicle stick, put strip of cotton onto of wax, rub, and rip to remove hair,) trust us when we say it just usually doesn’t work. We haven’t even scratched the surface of how to make a working hard sugar wax that really removes all of our hair so we’re only vouching for this recipe as a soft wax but once you have an effective foundation, we encourage experimentation.  

The beauty of this method is that it allows for a gorgeous amount of wiggle room, meaning it you don’t get it right or you don’t have the exact ingredients, you’ll still be perfectly fine but there are some things we want to note prior to getting into the actual sugar wax recipe.

  • • Sugar wax only adheres to the hair so for the smoothest hair removal, you’re going to need to have at least 1/6 inch of hair growth, two weeks of hair growth if you’re a regular shaver, four weeks of hair growth if you’re a regular waxer.
  • • To prevent ingrown hairs and infection, make sure to not shave in between waxes.
  • • The first time you sugar wax, you’ll have some stray hair, so it does help to have tweezers on hand.
  • • When cutting strips to use while waxing, you can purchase some organic cotton waxing strips or you can use something at home. Most tutorials on this suggest an old t-shirt, we recommend against that, as t-shirts are generally stretchy. You’ll want to look for something with little to no give, a fabric like linen or muslin. We recommend an old sheet, we actually use a ribbon, our first time doing this, we were scrambling for a something as the circle scarf that we cut up was just too stretchy, we came to a resolve by pulling out a long, red ribbon from our arts and crafts closet, we chopped it up and it was prefect; we’ve been using that ribbon ever since. Another beautiful thing is you just have to drop these into a basin of warm water, wait for the wax to dissolve, drain, and allow for the strips to dry.
  • • Just as the strips are a breeze to clean, sugar waxing as a whole is a cinch because water easily dissolves sugar, so anywhere you make a mess all you have to do is take a rag dampened with warm water and wipe it down. Same goes with any of your utensils used, just soak in warm water to clean.
  • • The recipe that we present you with should be enough your underarms twice, your bikini area and your underarms, your actual arms, both of your legs, you can double it if you’re going full body, no worries at all but we do recommend that if you’re new to waxing, just using the recipe below because you might not be into it and it is a bummer wasting ingredients.
  • • Sugar is known to cause yeast infections but you can use this wax on the bikini area, just take care to not get it on any of your sensitive areas and you should be good to go. (i.e. bikini wax, not recommended for a Brazilian.)

Our enchanted sugar wax recipe:

1 cup of granulated, white sugar

¼ cup of Apple Cider Vinegar

1 tablespoon of water

Again this recipe has a lot of flexibility. If you don’t have white sugar, you can you brown if you’d like, should you use brown, you’re going to have to pay a bit more attention to the overall consistency as the color will be less of an indicator. If you don’t ACV, you can substitute for a different acid such as lime or lemon juice and you can use bottled, no need for fresh if it’s not as readily available for you. You can experiment with adding honey if you’re non-vegan for some more anti-septic properties, whatever you’d like really.

You’ll want to add all of your ingredients to a medium saucepan and mix (we recommend mixing with a wooden spoon). Once you mix those you can go ahead and sit your mixing utensil aside until the cooking process is over. This is crucial because you don’t want crystallization to take place.

Put the saucepan over a medium flame and allow for the sugar to melt and for the water to evaporate (this is why the usual ¼ cup of water is absolute overkill in the recipe.) Once everything melts together (around 3-4 minute on a medium flame,) the mixture with begin to bubble, this is perfect. You’ll want to take the handle of the saucepan and swirl the mixture around bit every 2 minutes or so; this will be your form mixing throughout the cooking process. You’ll want to keep this mixture going on the heat until it’s golden, just slightly lighter than the color of regular store-brand honey. As you swirl the pot, the mixture should be thick, like half the thickness of molasses and you’re set! This process should take around 30 minutes. If you feel like the mixture is getting worked a bit too quickly, just turn down the stove, if the process is a bit too slow for you, keep a vigilant eye and turn up the heat.

Once the sugar is golden, turn off the heat, allow the mixture to sit in the pan for a few minutes (around 3,) then use your spoon to transfer the mixture to a heat-proof container. At this point the mixture is extremely so make sure to let it cool for at least 15 minutes. This is of the utmost importance that you let the mixture cool for 15 minutes and also that you do a test swatch after the 15 minutes to make sure that the wax is comfortable for you because you definitely don’t want to burn your skin.

While the wax is cooling, get out your strips (again use any fabric that doesn’t have too much stretch and cut to around 2” by 1” strips,) you’ll want to make sure to that you’re waxing clean, dry areas.  We use the slightest bit of tapioca starch to absorb any additional moisture on the skin, you can use baking soda, baby powder, cornstarch, whatever you’d like and have on hand or you can omit this step entirely. Lastly, you’ll want something to apply the wax with (we use popsicle sticks.)  

Once your wax has cooled significantly and you have everything else prepared; just hold your skin taut and apply the wax against the hair growth, put one of your waxing strips over the wax and rub the area (the friction will create warm and ensure that the strip is complete connected to the wax, i.e. hair,) then just pull the strip off with the hair growth.

Continue this process until the hair is removed to your liking. Make sure to exfoliate regularly to prevent ingrown hairs and improve the texture of your skin overall, here’s a post on that: Exfoliate

After waxing, we always follow up with a shower. Another plus of sugar waxing is that you don’t have to wait to take warm showers, swim, workout, etc. like regular waxing. Post shower, make sure to use one of your favorite moisturizers, we use our Leighis Body Butter which is stunning for the skin.

Here’s a master post on shaving: Major Key Alert: The Perfect Shave.

If you have any questions at all, just send us an ask!

We’re sending you so much love and so much light,

I’ve read a lot of stories of people with MD  who are hesitant to seek professional help because it is not yet a recognised condition or they’ve had bad experiences with trying to explain it. 

I’ve been extremely fortunate to be able to get therapy/counselling, thanks to the NHS, and it has been very helpful in getting over the worse of my depression and in just expressing myself, which is a huge part of MD recovery. 

You see, to get to the point where you can express your feelings in real life, you need to learn how to redirect them from your daydreaming world to your own self. 

Personally, it helped because explaining things gave me more confidence. I MD a lot about expressing my opinions, my feelings and my knowledge because it brings me confidence. As a result, I stutter much less than I used to, because it was caused by lack of self esteem. 

I had a first series of appointments (around ten I believe) where I talked about my depression, because I didn’t know that I had MD yet. I just knew something was wrong, I was always numb and zombie like and it was making me suicidal. 

Therapy helped me get rid of the “depression cloud” but not of MD per say. So I guess it was a temporary solution because I didn’t dig deep enough. 

At the same time, I was getting separate counselling to deal with “lighter” issues, like being anxious of going outside with a lot of people. Overall, this helped me to get out more often and not be so isolated and also improved my confidence by talking about my problems. 

I went back for a second round of therapy because I really was not going well, I had relapsed during the summer (even through I didn’t know/realise what a relapse was). 

These were the most helpful because I was directly tackling the root of the problem. There were not straightforward because my therapist did not know what MD was precisely but that helped because I was standing up for my myself by directing her in the right direction. 

The way I advise you to talk about MD to a therapist is by focusing on how debilitating it is, the many hours you lose by engaging in MD and also by focusing on how it’s a coping mechanism for deeper issues you may not be aware of. 

Even though I relapsed shortly after stopping that second round of sessions, I am now more determined that ever to keep going. 

I have good days and bad days and I’m proud to say that I haven’t relapsed in a bit more than 2 months. 

Therapy definitely encouraged me to keep going because I was accountable for my progress. This blog is another way to keep me accountable. 

Although I think that MD is a personal battle, getting help and reaching out is extremely beneficial because you need to let out everything that you’ve accumulated there. Talking to a stranger will be weird and will feel totally useless at first, but it gets better. It’s gonna take quite some time but you need to consistent and do your best x 

Sun Burn Tips

1. Put lotion on the burned area to draw out heat and keep the area soft.
2. Do not wear perfume or lotion that contains alcohol as this will iritate the burn.
3. Take an anti inflammatory like Ibeprophen. This will dull pain and keep swelling down. Take it as soon as you notice symptoms of a sun burn. Dont wait.
4. Cool baths help sooth sunburns. Dont use hot water. This also keeps you clean to prevent infection.
5. DO NOT ITCH OR PICK AT THE BURN THIS WILL MAKE IT WORSE.
6. Use aloe spray or aloe gel.
7. If the sunburn starts to peel. Don’t peel it. Let it peel on its own.
8. Wear light clothing that is soft. Heavy scratchy clothing will cause irritations.
9. Keep hydrated! Drink alot of water!
10. Keep cool, turn on your ac and use fans to blow cold air over the affected skin.
11. If your body gets blisters, do not pick at them. This is a sign if a severe sunburn. Let them heal on their own to prevent infection.
12. Go inside or stay in the shade. Stay out if the sun until the sunbirn heals. Exposure to more sunlight will make things worse.
13. Sprinkle a bit of cornstarch onto yourself or your sheets to ease friction in your sleep.
14. Do not place frozen objects directly onto your burn.
15. Once you notice a sunburn. Get out of the sun.
16. Some burns can be treated at home, even blisters. But if the blisters are over more 20% of your body or if you feel nauseated, get intense chills, or run a fever. Seek medical attention.
17. Avoid things that contain Benzocaine and Lidocane. These are pain relievers but can cause irritation and allergic reactions.
18. Use spf 30-50 and guards against both UVB and UVA rays that is water resistant. Apply around 15 minutes before going outside and reapply it every two hours.
19. Spray apple cider vinegar on a sunburn for instant relief.
20. Freeze Alor Vera in an ice cube tray to rub carefully on skin after they ment a bit. This helps extract heat.

~~!! for my followers w vaginas !!~~

i’m gonna compile some tips n’ tricks for how to take care of ur vaginas bc they do not come with an owner’s manual and that shit is NOT ALWAYS EASY so i am gonna use my trials n’ tribulations to give u some info about how to make ur vag happy bc a healthy vag is a happy vag


- first and foremost, u go ahead and shave those pubes however you want to. i’ve found that it’s best to give yourself a lil break here and there tho. if you’re tryna go for that baby smooth, no hair look 24/7 and all u have is a razor and some soap, ur gonna run into some #trouble. THAT HAIR IS THERE FOR A REASON!!! it protects ur v from bacteria and disease. when u shave constantly, it creates little tears in ur skin for bad stuff to get in (bars), so try to go longer in between shaves or shave less each time. less razor burn and fewer cuts. ur body will say thanks. if u are worried ur sexual partner/s will not like pubes, FUCK ‘EM bc that shit is ridiculous, it’s your body, your comfort, and your autonomy they are calling into question when they complain about ur body hair. in my experience no Real Ones™ will care or even notice ur pubes and they will respect ya body doin it’s own thing.

- don’t put needless stuff up there!! this one took me forever to figure out. do not use your regular soap/body wash on ur vagina, especially if that shit is scented. THIS IS NOT A GOOD THING TO DO. it will irritate u and upset that delicate ph balance. the ONLY thing u should be using to wash your vagina is warm water. this will adequately rinse away any sweat and bacteria that has collected there throughout the day w/o irritating the puss. plus, a proper ph balance means u will also taste and smell better so that’s a #plus.

- don’t sleep w/ ur undies on! take those bbys off before bed, especially if they are those spandex or lace joints u def don’t want that clinging to ur v all night. this is especially important if u are prone to yeast infections and utis (me). if u must sleep with underwear, better choose those nice cotton guys. that material breathes better. 

- get yaself tested REGULARLY if u are sexually active like that shit is so important. it’s ok to not use condoms circumstantially, use ur discretion, but that means it’s even more important to head to PP frequently to make sure u r ok. with my insurance, it only costs like $10 to get tested, and they have low-cost options for ppl w/o insurance too!

- if u are having sex w/ ppl w/ penises, invest in at least 2 types of condoms bc the whole thing about some condoms not properly fitting some ppl is REAL. while this is no excuse for someone to coerce u to fuq w/o a condom if u aren’t comfortable, it is indeed true that some condoms don’t fit very well, and it’s better to be prepared. if they r packin’ and u try and use a regular condom, shit’s prolly gonna break and leave u exposed to illness or pregnancy. 

- find a bc that works for u and stick to it no matter what u gotta do. life is already stressful enough, u don’t need to worry about pregnancy on top of all a that if that’s somethin ur body is able to do. set reminders on ur phone, don’t let ppl finish in u if are uncomfortable w/ that, and track ur periods so u know when to expect that shit. 

- speaking of period trackers, APPS ARE GREAT FOR THIS. these apps also let u record when you’ve had sex and who w/, i make a note in my app everytime i have sex so i can reference when and who it happened w/ in case of emergency. 

- COCONUT OIL AS LUBE IS REAL AF!!! it makes blowjobs taste like coconut cream pie and it allows for some NEXT LEVEL blowjobs, handjobs, and sex. it doesn’t irritate the v region or the surrounding areas at all. ONLY USE COCONUT OIL IF U AREN’T USING A CONDOM bc it can sometimes weaken the latex and cause it to tear. i haven’t had this happen personally, but i read about it so watch out for that. u can just rub it into ur skin after bc it helps keep u supple n’ hydrated.

- if someone is hesitant to eat the puss or doing it w/ little to no enthusiasm, either have a conversation w them about it or drop ‘em. this happened to me for years and i was supes self-conscious about ppl going down on me. find ppl who LUVS it and u will never look back i promise. 

- pay attention to what ur v is telling u. i can now tell w/i a few hours whether or not i’m starting to get a yi or uti so i can get medication that day and feel better that DAY. stay HYDRATED too.

- if u notice anything outta the ordinary, pay attention and go to ur doctor. they will know more than u and more importantly EVERYONE ELSE ON THE INTERNET. but remember that u know ur body better than everyone else, and sometimes doctors can be wrong, so always make sure to have them test u to be sure. my gyne once told me she thought i had herpes when it was actually just a yeast infection so ALWAYS have them test to be sure (i was so pissed omg). 

- lastly remember that it is part of YOUR BODY, not anyone else’s, and the simpler ur routine, the healthier and happier ur v will b (bars).

Tipsy desire | Archie Andrews

Hey beautiful people! 💕

So I’m back with a very short imagine requested by an anon. It’s not that great but I struggle a lot with this kind of imagines as they are not really my thing. But I tried my best. 

With this one I realized that I’m better at writing things with an specific story line, so I deeply apologize for this one. 

Now I know that you are really waiting for part 2 of Neglected. I just wanted to remind you that I have other requests I have to write as well, so after this imagine I’ll post another Jughead request before posting Neglected part 2. 

Still I’m overwhelmed by the response and all your lovely messages, I really really appreciate it 💕  Thank you so much guys! 

I hope you enjoy this little cringe worthy imagine though lol

Anon request: Can you write an imagine of Archie Andrews where Archie and the reader get drunk at a party and make out or something?

Warnings: mentions of sex, heavy make out session, drunk teenagers, underage drinking.

-

Teenagers were all around the place, not having a care in the world of what was happening outside the door. The air was filled with the smell of cheap liquor and cigarettes, mixed with the sweat from all the people dancing on the first floor.

It was all so unexpected and out of the blue, that the only thing Archie could think of was allowing people to throw a party in his house. He knew it was wrong considering it was Jughead’s birthday and the last thing he wanted was a big party. But he could take the blame later. After all, it was Betty who wanted to throw a party even though she knew Jughead didn’t want one.

The last month, things had been taking a toll on him, playing tricks with his emotional health and his sanity. He needed that party. It was the perfect opportunity to let go of everything and block reality for a couple of hours. He was craving the comfort that the alcohol offered, knowing very well that it would help him to put his mind at ease.

Archie was pumping his fist in the air to the beat of music blasting from the speakers. His bloodstream running wild, corrupted by the cold beer he had been drinking earlier. All his inhibitions were long forgotten as he chugged the rest of his drink.

All of sudden, his cup was taken away from his lips by a small soft hand enveloping his. He drunkenly smiled to his girl standing in front of him, wobbling on her feet. Archie felt the excitement blooming on his chest, at the sight of her hazy eyes paired up with her red cheeks caused by the alcohol on her system.

He immediately placed his hands on her hips, their chests colliding as he pulled her to his body. Their foreheads were pressed together, both of them swaying to the rhythm. Her hands tightly clasped at the back of his neck.

He lowered her head, trying to steal a kiss. However, she turned her face causing his lips to collide with her cheek. Archie lifted his brows surprised but she only gave him a playful smile before turning around on her heels to keep dancing.

He stopped her on her tracks with his arms snaking around her waist, refusing to let her walk away. He followed her every move, their hips meeting in a slow dance. Archie buried his face on her neck, placing brief kisses just below her ear. She smiled when she felt his breathing quickening once she started rubbing her backside to his pelvis.

Archie shut his eyes close, enjoying the intimacy of the moment, yet craving more. His fists held onto the fabric of her shirt, gathering up all his self control, still conscious of the people around them.

Using the last bit of will inside him, he pulled away from her, taking her hand to guide her towards the stairs.

“Come with me.” he whispered in her ear before she eagerly followed behind him.

They went up the stairs with slow steps, taking a bit more than a normal person would. They were past the point of being tipsy and the alcohol was the one controlling their bodies.

As soon as they entered his room, she pushed him onto the bed, placing herself on his lap straddling him. She wanted to feel in control of the situation and that position granted her just that.

Feeling impatient, he reached over and took her face in his hands before crashing his lips against hers.

She responded the kiss, already feeling everything surely escalating. But a response is all he needed, just a wordless permission to touch her as much as he wanted.

She took the chance to bury her hands on his hair, pulling at the strands without doing any harm. Archie groaned against her lips, earning a satisfied smile from her.

Her tongue met his in a rushed and desperate dance. In those drunken kisses, Archie recognized the taste of booze in her lips, fueling his desire for more.  

She lowered her mouth to his neck, right where his pulse throbbed just under his skin, placing slow wet kisses. She bit into the tender skin while sucking a bit, sure to leave a hickey corrupting  the  flawless skin. His common sense was hanging by a thread as he felt her warm breath, soothing the fresh mark.

Once again, he hungrily claimed her lips with his hands roaming all over her body before settling on her ass, giving it a rough squeeze. She returned the favor by dragging her hands on his chest and abdomen, right under his shirt.  

Soon, his thirst grew, demanding him for any kind of relief. He firmly grabbed her hips, as he moved his trying to create some friction. It worked, as she immediately responded with a deep moan.  

“Archie.” She breathed with desire laced in her voice, gently biting his lip in the process.  

“You’re so perfect, I swear.” he responded with his hands clenching her bottom, intensifying their dry humping session. She kissed him again, her mind clouded with lust wanting nothing more but the touch of the red haired boy.

However, Archie wanted to be the one in control. He wanted to have her under him, reaching for him and squirming in pleasure. So in a quick move he tried to reverse their positions, failing miserably by the lack of coordination, courtesy of alcohol.

He landed on his back on the carpeted floor, dragging her with him falling just next to him. They both exploded into laughter, killing the previous mood. There were tears streaming from their faces of how hard they were laughing, both of them clenching their stomachs trying to stop.  

“I think we’re too drunk for this Archie.” she declared rubbing her eyes, finally accepting their intoxicated state.

“I think you’re probably right.” he chuckled grabbing her hand. He closed his eyes and sighed satisfied as all his worries had melted away. “But promise me that when we’re both sober, we’ll continue this.” she smiled at his puppy eyes and pecked his lips sweetly.

“I promise we will.”

“Good.” he simply said, holding both of their hands against his chest, selfishly wanting to keep her close.

Not long after, she heard his soft snores indicating that alcohol had won the battle taking away his energy. She smiled, while her free hand brushed his hair away from his face before kissing his forehead with endearment.

“Good night Archie.” she whispered, closing her eyes as well, wanting to join him in his deep slumber.
