  2. No problem! I’m super busy this week so sorry for the late reply! 

    Glad I could help a little, feel free to bounce any mood boards or dilemmas off of me, I know how you feel! I get the ”money wasting” sensation too, it’s why I have a whole strategy for clothes buying, LOL. 

    Usually what helps when I start really getting hesitant is I check my list of needed items, I look over what I already have again, I remind myself that sometimes clothes really do seriously need replacing and new things do sometimes need to be bought, and shopping for needed items isn’t something to feel bad about! :) 

    Look at an item in your closet, and try to think of how long you’ve had it. If you wear it regularly, imagine how much mileage you got out of that item of clothing! If it’s a coat or a scarf or even socks and jeans, remember that all these things are important to have. :) Remember a situation where you were freezing and pulled a nice hood up over your head to break the cold air- If you didn’t have that hoodie, you would have gotten frostbite or just been uncomfortable, but never feel bad, because even if it’s a fashionable item, it still serves a purpose that can sometimes be overlooked when it comes ‘round to shopping time. :) 

    The closet photos are so key to my shopping! It has saved me so much money, alleviates a lot of guilt, and I never get a shirt or something that I ”can’t wear” because it doesn’t match anything or whatever. 

    The photo trick is something I tell everyone, because it helps everyone. It can help you coordinate, save money, alleviate some of that money spending reluctance, and makes you list what items you need, what needs replacing, and informs you as to what’s up with your clothes situation! :D 

    I always Godmother my friends, LOL, so we’ll be shopping and I ask people things like ”Okay, do you need socks? Underwear? Essentials? It’s going to be cold soon, do you all have a scarf?” LOL :’)

    Plus, I studied fashion at the BA level and fashion illustration along that same course before going back into illustration general studies, so if you give me a hint as to what you’re looking at or describe to me what you’d like, what your favourite clothing items are and why, and possibly give me a photo of you (full body if possible), I can draw up a lineup for you with some ideas. I’d have to take a picture, as my scanner is currently a little bunk, but sometimes that visual can make or break a game plan!

    I am more than happy to be your casual personal shopping assistant! :)

    DO NOT DO THIS.

    DO NOT DO THIS.

    DO NOT DO THIS.

    NO DO NOT FUCKING DO THIS, CRYON HAS A LOT OF FUCKING LEAD IN IT (four times more than lipstick) PLEASE JUST BUY ACTUAL LIPSTICK.

    There’s no lead in crayola crayons. Kids eat them.

    The ingredients in Crayola Crayons are: paraffin, wax, and pigment. They’re made with the understanding that some kids will eat the damn things, so the company that makes Crayons has been very very careful to use non-toxic materials, even going so far as to use a special edible glue on the paper labels. (cornstarch and water, fyi)

    You can eat Crayons, if you really wanted to, but frankly the flavor’s a little bland. They taste like wax. So, yeah. adding oils with a lower solidification temperature like Olive Oil or Grapeseed or Avocado, and mixing in some Shea or Coconut Butter would make a creamy crayon. Which you could use on your skin, if you wanted.

    Go wild, use that shit on more than just lips. Use it like theatrical makeup, paint your tits blue if you want. Or use it like paint on the walls, or paper, or canvas. It won’t dry the same way acrylic or watercolor paint will, and will remain ‘workable’ and pliable until the oil looses enough water to solidify, much like, oh, off the top of my head… oil paint.

    Modern oil paints are very similar to the recipe above, though usually done with Linseed oil or other inert non-organic oils. Organic oils, as they dry, can discolor, making your carefully chosen color look off. Why are some really old painting slightly yellow? Partly the varnish has yellowed, partly airborne pollutants have stained the surface, and partly the oil in the original paint has shifted color.

    BTW, don’t eat Linseed oil, you’ll get the runs something fierce and regret it a lot. And then you get to go to the doctor and explain why your runny poo is brightly colored. But the amount you’d ingest from lipstick made with crayons? Negligible.

    Now I really want to make a set of rainbow lipstick to match my rainbow collection of nail polish (which is way more toxic than crayon lipstick, too.)

    so what you’re saying is

    i could buy a fuckton of grey crayns

    and have grey body paint

    i think i know where that’s going

    i think we all know where that’s going

    Seriously? The lead person must live in a fucking box. I’m 30 and I’ve eaten probably 25 crayons in my life as a young kid. They’ve been non toxic for about 55 years now or some shit. (too lazy to look up the real time) but yeah. Kids EAT Crayola. They are NOT toxic. Hell my 8 year old still occasionally colors her teeth with crayola.

    Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

    on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

    see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

    how come i never knew this damn

    you know why. 

    I knew this but it’s important that I reblog it not only because it’s fucking serious that more people see this, but it’s important to educate yourself where the institutions fail and conceal incredibly important points and information like this. 

    You cannot trust anyone to teach you anything but yourself. If you want the truth, you have to find it. You have to do the work, because the people that run the world and the schools and the press and everything else, they want you to just trust their authority and their age and convince you that they are telling you everything you ”need to know”.

    Kids, pre-teens, teenagers, young adults: Don’t trust adults. Don’t trust a thing. Research and learn and share what you find and share the facts. 

    Because nobody in power, nobody that has authority, no teacher or parent or adult will tell you the truth. Because being really, truly educated scares the shit out of the people in power. Any kind of power. Because the structures of authority are built off of a history of endless wrongs- Most of which are lost, the rest of which few know, and a small handful of which come to light. 

    You gotta dig deep to break the surface.

    And in case you didn’t know, this was also done for quite a long time for immigrants coming in via Staten Island and other major immigration ports, because Gaelic, Slavic, any ”foreign” name was Americanised. 

    So for example, my Nana’s family came from Slovakia. Many of the names in her family were changed, and as a result, my father’s family history and my family history on that side is impossible to trace past a certain point. 

    If you are an American with an overseas immigrant in your family, who arrived in America before around 1930 (I do not have my research on hand so don’t take that year as a definite date, but this practice went on for a surprisingly long time) chances are that names in your family were changed.

    If you can, trace it back while older people in your family are still alive, to set things straight or provide you with information you might be fascinated by or use to find out more. 

    History is important and they won’t teach you this shit because you’ll know how fucked up things really are and how broken shit really is.

    Educate yourself and share the knowledge, because having the truth is having the real power, and that’s why they don’t teach any of it to you.

  7. as a white person that makes fun of myself for being white and enjoys making white jokes

    white person here, whenever I make a ”fucking white people” joke, I love how it surprises everyone and everyone laughs like fucking crazy. it’s the best way to diffuse a fight or an argument or just brighten a shitty day. 

    it’s like, nobody expects me to drop a white joke. the element of surprise and the total accuracy of my statements = instant stand up comedy

    once we had to read off our answers for some stupid fucking survey thing, and under ”worst fears” I put white people. I read it out totally serious, deadpan as fuck, totally for real. 

    when I read it out loud, like three people actually gasped, and then everyone lost their shit once they processed it. 

    because really, it wasn’t a lie. white people are like… ahhhhh man, I need to get a coffee before I talk about this LMAO

    but yeah when it snowed last year I was like ”hey guys you gotta hold on to my arm while we’re walking, I won’t fall over, but I’m so fucking white I’ll be lost forever, you’ll never find me, spring will come around and I will literally melt with the snow. I am one with the white. You must save me from my own whiteness.” 

    someone overheard it and stopped dead in the street to ask me if i had a youtube channel and tell me I should make one immediately LMAO <3 

    I like making white people jokes. because it’s fucking funny, and when I drop a white people joke and some white person doesn’t laugh, I know immediately that that person is probably a motherfucker and I should proceed with caution when dealing with that one. 

    fun observation: the only white people not to laugh with me on white jokes have been mostly men, usually in a higher age group, and no white person over 40 has ever laughed at me, but they HAVE arrested me…

    clearly they fear smart funny self-aware white people that aren’t afraid to equal the comedy playing field a little 

    in other news, I’m so white because I have a super rare genetic blood disorder that originated in Africa, and is almost never found outside of specific African populations, where it is still extremely rare. I love the irony of that, but I also wonder about how my little genetic blip came to be, seeing as my family is 100% white people. Or so I have been told…

    I smell a white people conspiracy. ADD IT TO THE LIST
