1. Don’t try to piss quietly. Nobody in a public restroom thinks you’re knitting in your stall. They came to piss, just like you. And if you have to take a dump, do it. Get over your fear of public toilets. It’ll make life a lot easier.

2. Masturbate. Masturbate a lot. Talk about it with your friends. You’ve got the right to make yourself feel good and brag about it just like all the boys with extra large kleenex packages on their desks.

3. If you want the large fries, get the large fries. Hunger and appetite are nothing to be ashamed of, just human. Don’t ever feel guilty for eating in front of others. You need to nourish your body to stay alive. We all do.

4. Laugh as loud as you have to, no matter if you snort or gasp or literally scream.

5. Fart when you have to.

6. Always remember you weren’t born to visually please others. Forget the phrase “what if they think it’s ugly”. If you think it’s lovely, it is lovely. You wanna wear it, wear it!

7. Speak your mind! You can learn to do so without insulting others or shoving your opinion down other people’s throats.

Seven Simple Ways To Free Yourself, from girl to girl (via fawnbabe)

AMEN, AMEN, and AMEN!! *cheers wildly*

This reminds me- I have to get back to trying my little samplers out.  I heard about this place a few months back, got like 5 little sampler smudges (slivers of lipstick in tiny baggies.. not so easy to apply and not exactly what I was expecting, but in REALLY pretty colors), but I’ve only torn into one.  (Mainly because.. how does one apply something IN a tiny baggie, w/no fancy brushes..??)  But.. perhaps I can just open them up and smoodge.  Hmm… Either way, I need to get back to trying those again.  I’d love to find alternative lipsticks that act like a longwear lipcolor/stain, and the methods, hues and ingredients this company works with are just too cool.  ^_^



Review: Portland Black Lipstick Company

Anyone who went through a babybat phase knows the horrors of costume makeup. Black lipstick in particular is something that’s easy to come by in the Halloween section of the local drugstore. You know the one. Cheap, greasy, lasts about five minutes before melting off your face? Yeah we’ve all been there. Let’s try not to think about it anymore. For a while now I’ve been on the hunt for a perfect grown up black lipstick. “Perfect” meaning it must meet the following requirements:

1. Affordable—there are some higher end black lipcolors out there that get great reviews, but frankly I can’t spend thirty bucks on a lipstick. I have bills to pay, and booze to buy.

2. Opaque—a lot of the cheaper stuff is very sheer. I wanted maximum coverage.

3. True black—not a dark purple or blue like cheaper lipsticks

4. Long lasting—something I can wear all day, every day without having to touch it up often.

After a bit of searching and reading other reviews online, I finally found my perfect match at Portland Black Lipstick Company, a small indie cosmetics company based in (duh) Portland, Oregon. The fact that their products are independently and ethically produced is a bonus on top of meeting all four of my criteria. I bought their Original Black Lipstick back in September, and it’s been my absolute favorite lip color ever since.

At nine dollars plus shipping, it’s way too affordable not to try. Because it’s so inexpensive I had some doubts about it’s quality, but I was pleasantly surprised. You get much more than you pay for here. The photos above were taken after one swipe, and you can see that the color and the coverage is excellent. It has exactly the sort of black leather look I wanted. And it really does last all day! I wear it to work almost every day now and other than touching up after eating, I hardly need to worry about it at all.

The only drawback I can find is that the lip balm style tube it comes in can make application a little messy, but if you’re careful (or use a lip brush) it’s no biggie. Only a small flaw in an otherwise excellent product.

I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a very affordable, high quality black lipstick. They have lots of other interesting colors that I see myself trying in the future. I’ll be sure to post more photos when I do.

I know the lady behind this one-woman business, and have talked a good bit with her about her work. She’s recreating Victorian cosmetics using original recipes, and considering all the petrochemical-based stuff available on the mainstream market, her creations are a nice alternative for those of us concerned with the environment and what we put on and in our own bodies.

This could be neat!

If you think a girl is cute and awesome and really cool and genuinely like her but won’t date her because she’s chubby or fat and you don’t want people to judge you for it then please remember you’re a piece of shit okay, promise



Look, I fixed it.

See THIS bullshit is why we kinky people can’t have nice things.


There are two articles, one written by aletheanoir HERE… and oh hey LOOK… an article written by another FEMINIST HERE (le gasp!!) that give some pretty neat insight on what BDSM/kink is about.

So here’s a graphic that compares what BDSM is vs what Abuse is for those too lazy to read:


Ever gotten your ass spanked while getting screwed from behind? Like getting your hair pulled?  News flash sweet cheeks, that’s kink, very SLIGHT kink compared to most of my friends, but still falls in the kinky spectrum.

Nothing is EVER fully vanilla sex anymore, unless you do it missionary, in the dark, floor length nightgown pulled up past your hips and laying there like a dead fish while your partner pumps away; with your eyes closed the whole time praying that he’d stop soon so you could go to sleep.

I am no less of a Feminist when I kneel at my chosen Dominant’s feet, nor am I less of a Feminist when I allow the kiss of a leather flogger or a single tailed whip to trail along my back and buttocks. I am still a Feminist if I have a Dominant’s collar around my neck (even if it’s just for playtime) and am lead through an area of a club on a leash.

But of course, OP can’t do their own research or ask questions because “RAH ALL BDSM IS ABUSE, THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE”…

The difference dear girl, is that while there ARE those pieces of scum that hide their abuse under the PRETENSE… i’ll say it again PREEEEEEEE-TENSE of BDSM… it is NOT actual BDSM/Kink.


Now if anyone wants to have a CIVIL Q&A, my askbox is always open and I am more than happy to keep asks private.  Disclaimer: I may ask to post the question and my reply in a new text post, but i will NOT include the name of the person who sent in the ask, because it’s the right thing to do.

Seriously.  The only things I have real issue with in this song are the parts about curves being about mens’ preferences.  No, not all thin women think they’re fat, and no, we shouldn’t shame others just to lift ourselves up (part of why fluffy people are lashing out so much righ tnow- because we’ve endured it for CENTURIES- and no, that doesn’t make it okay), but dammit, how many curve-friendly, body-positive songs are there out there..?  I bet there are a THOUSAND tunes out there talking about and glorifying being skinny (in fact, I’m pretty sure I heard a song on the radio the other day talking about a girl who binges and purges, and then goes n’ sleeps in a bathtub after drinking all day.. SEXY!).  So for gracious’ sake, can we please NOT pick apart the 0.43965 songs we have out there that’re trying to lift UP people of size..?  (And, depending on your POV, all body types..?)

-Just my 3 cents.




let me just say a few things about ‘all about that bass’ real quick

  1. it’s a song about body positivity and we don’t get many of those so can we just take that into consideration please
  2. i know people are kicking off about her using the phrase “skinny bitches” but she does follow it up with "no, i’m just playing i know you think you’re fat / but i’m here to tell you that / every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top"  she’s taken an insult commonly given to slim women and basically a said so what if you are skinny/skinny but you think you’re fat, YOU’RE STILL PERFECT 
  3. i’ve seen shit loads of people saying it makes them feel more confident, and slim women get a ton of media reinforcing the idea that their body is perfect anyway

I love this damn song

needed this today after a phone call with my mom
