We need a term that stands for, “Friend, I am not ignoring you. I am suffering a bout of depression. I will be fine & have support.
"I don’t need to talk and I appreciate that you will listen if I do. I am simply processing heavy code.
"This has nothing to do with anything tangible you can change, and will be over in a few days or weeks."
Got the new (waterproof) version of my favorite liner, @thekatvond’s liner in Trooper. First impression: the felt tip is not as flexible as the non- waterproof version, so not as easy to work with. I’ll try again in the morning.
Dear Pinterest, I am definitely not mad at you for this twisty back hair idea. Well done. #curlygirl
The succulent by my front door is doing a thing!
Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis.
I have never related to a quote more in my life than I do this one right here, right now. BAM. (via reificationofnotion)
My new Kat von D Chrysalis palette came today and I dived directly in! I’ve only been playing with it a few hours, but here are my photos and first impressions.
The packaging is gorgeous, of course.
Here is the exterior box
Here is a detail of the front cover of the actual palette
There is a large mirror inside, and the palette itself is surprisingly weighty. It is cardboard with a magnet…
It’s heeeeere! #katvond #chrysalis #sephora
The wearing of high heels causes pain, disability and, often, permanent deformity for women. The continued existence of this harmful cultural practice in western societies requires explanation. William Rossi, author of the bible of men’s shoe fetishism, ‘The Sex Life of the Foot and Shoe’, tells us how important disabling shoes are to men by declaring that, ‘Men are still uncertain whether the greatest of all inventions was the wheel or the high heel’. Rossi, like other foot fetishists, from fashion designers to ordinary male habitues of brothels and consumers of pornography, is well aware that the high-heeled shoe is an instrument of torture for women. As Rossi says, ‘The high heel makes no practical sense whatever. It has no functional or utilitarian value. It’s an unnatural fixture on a shoe. It makes standing and walking precarious and tiring. It’s a safety hazard. It’s blamed for a host of pedic and bodily ills’. But for foot fetishists… the damage and pain are crucial parts of the sexual excitement they gain from their obsession.

Check out my awesome new skull bracelet from the sale at #asos! It was in the dude section, but I don’t care, I do what I want!
its weird that guys get so touchy when you accuse them of sexism like “im not sexist wtf????” when they should really be worried about “ive been acting sexist wtf????” like dude youre not the victim of an accusation the accusation is the result of your behavior
literally every person born into a position to oppress has behaved like this and its gross
Follow the… whatever you want, really.
I had a really ugly day yesterday. Not the kind where I feel ugly – the kind where everything else feels ugly. Sometimes I am too harshly reminded of the gritty, disturbing reality of dealing with other people. People who do shitty stuff, and lie and twist things, and fuck up other people’s heads.
It set me thinking how we each construct a life story that…
I was sad that Kat von D had not released anything new and awesome and cool in time for the Spring 15% off at Sephora – but just in time, she did!

I was pretty much sold on the Monarch palette for the warm colors, but then I saw these great swatches on imgur. Check the swatches out, they’re awesome.
