|I like to hope I'm not the only one who is just terrible at summing up their entire self in one little blurb. Here's some things I am. I'm a Lolita. I'm a nerd. I'm a feminist. I'm a writer. I'm studying graphic design. I love music, theater, fantasy and sci-fi. Looking through this blog thing here will tell you a lot of what I like, actually. You should do that instead of reading this, because down there there are probably funny things and maybe a cat or something.|
Well, depends on how much you put on to start with!
Heavy makeup is so unnecessary every day. Keep it simple and go all out when you are going out or for a special occasion.

fuck ur shit makeup is my art
i can’t make art on paper
i can’t write poetry
i can’t make music
i can’t dance
but i CAN paint. and draw. and outline. and blend. and smudge. and highlight. and shade.
it just so happens that my face is my canvas.
The harmful drug here is society’s unrealistic expectations of women. The harmful drug here is media’s influence in making women feel like they’re not good enough. Being able to visually express yourself is not harmful. I love my makeup. I love to create and blend and explore colour palettes and I love to put it on my face the same reason you love to wear your favourite shirt. You feel good wearing that shirt and it also gives others a feel for your personality. Expressing yourself is not harmful; belittling women for their right to do so is.
Of course makeup is used as a tool to enhance beauty and can therefore have negative effects on one’s self esteem, warping their perception of beauty and in effect their own self worth. However instead of tacking that issue, some women feel the need to lecture others (almost always condescendingly) on what makeup is, what it does, when to wear it, how and why. Not wearing makeup doesn’t make you any more morally superior than the next person.
these get better everyday
Okay, this is the funniest one so far. XD
Though I still like squidbiscuit’s Fartly.
How Did You Find That Untagged Post From 11 Months Ago a story of confusion, fear, and general unease
Truth bomb if I ever saw one.
Many of you have probably heard of the CEO of Abercrombie and Fitch’s controversial and flat out rude comments that the company doesn’t sell XL or XXL sizes for women because they want “cool” people to wear their clothes. Well, this blogger wrote an open letter to Jeffries and included these photos of herself and what is considered a “typical” male model body type.
Some quotes from her letter:
“The only thing you’ve done through your comments (about thin being beautiful and only offering XL and XXL in your stores for men) is reinforce the unoriginal concept that fat women are social failures, valueless, and undesirable.”
“This is largely attributed to companies like yours that perpetuate the thought that fat women are not beautiful. This is inaccurate, but if someone were to look through your infamous catalog, they wouldn’t believe me.”
“P.P.S. You should know your Large t-shirt comfortably fits a size 22. You might want to work on that.”
This has to do with fashion, though perhaps not in the way this blog has so far posted. But this sort of confidence is the sort of thing that we want our choices in clothes to reflect. You should be able to wear whatever you want and feel confident - no matter what other people may say or think.
