“Confidence is being able to say ‘Fuck you, I’m the shit’ without opening your mouth, say it with your walk, with your smile, say it with your entire being.”—Tati-Ana Mercedes (via masturbationdestination)
Almost finished prepping for the final hiatus sale before i officially close my shop. Pushed back the closing date because it took a bit to get my shi*t together upon returning from my trip. News soon. Haven’t forgotten about you!~
I’ve never dressed a certain way to appear more attractive to anyone. Despite my mother constantly telling me (my entire life) that I’d never get a boyfriend that way. As if having a significant other, or people’s assumptions about heteronormative life, is my first priority.
Art, pursuit of knowledge, and self love are the most important things in life. Meeting new people, sharing experiences, and traveling are something that I’m grateful for. It was only coincidence that I’ve found dates along the way. People who’ve whole-heartedly loved or liked me for the way I am.
Dress for yourselves, live your life for yourself, but also share your love with others. If that’s what you crave. Whether it’s romantic or sexual or platonic.
You don’t have to fit a certain life formula to make anyone else happy. Roam the world. Hustle. Have a lot of flings. Get married or don’t. Forge your own path or work for someone else.
None of it is wrong and they are your decisions to make.
fun prank; tell women they’re only good for romance, sex, and having children. and then laugh at them for wanting romance, shame them for having sex, and act like they have to give up all facets of their personalities if they become mothers
I appreciate a good commercial. I do. As a former marketer I admire how GoldieBlox has so successfully tapped into the desire for parents of girls (and, I think for grown women) to see toy manufacturers create products other than dolls or princess crap.
“As I grow older, much older, I will experience many things, and I will hit rock bottom again and again. Again and again I will suffer; again and again I will get back on my feet. I will not be defeated. I won’t let my spirit be destroyed.”— Banana Yoshimoto (Kitchen)
your bold brave colours are amazing! especially the perfect skin tones and blushes - what pens, inks, paints or pencils do you use? or do you finish on photoshop too?
Thank you! I’ve been using strange candy color palettes forever. Trust me, my colors were definitely under scrutiny in school. Just starting to be appreciated & i’m so glad you babes get me. ♥
I’ve been using watercolors, gouache, and pencils. Brands don’t matter. Experiment. Art supply stores are great places and typically cheaper than craft stores for the same art quality brands. If not better.
