TIE ONE ON RIGHT: A QUICK GUIDE TO NECKTIE PAIRING
You slept straight through the first alarm. You hit “SLEEP” through the next ten. And now you have only seconds to pick out the perfect necktie and shirt combo for that big nine o’clock presentation.
A nightmare scenario? No, not necessarily. True, you probably didn’t need that fourth pint, or the fifth for that matter, but no use crying over spilled stout. The most important thing is nailing that neck wear in a timely fashion.
So here are some tips to make it easy:
why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.

THIS IS NOT THOM BROWNE’S, THIS IS NOT “LORDE-INSPIRED”
East African women (and probably other women from that region of the world) have BEEN dying their fingertips
Reblogging for knowledge drop
Yup, my momma been doin this.
I know Sooooo many black and brown girls that use to get mocked for this (Some African, indo-pak) and now its acceptable because its “fashion”
There’s something that really, really sickens me about the way fashion treats the traditions stolen from black/brown regions.For example:
But let’s not forget the first time dip dyed fingers were seen on the runway. Sorry Thom, but Mara Hoffman beat you to it. For her Fall 2011 show, the “Middle Eastern desert woman” look was complete with ink-stained fingers. Makeup artist Lottie for Make Up For Ever used body paint to achieve the look.
Literally, it’s been a fashion trend rooted in taking real present day women and turning them into exotic, taboo fictionalized caricatures. It’s not even “oh we stole this look and pretending it’s brand new” it’s "This is fashion because we’re acknowledging that we don’t consider these women as *real* and we want to *dirty* ourselves by playing dress up as them" I continue to get “look how weird and daring my pristine white model hands look with this horrifying risky taboo ink on my finger tips” from these fashion websites as they describe this “look.”
I’m sorry, women in Africa and South Asia are constantly used as this sick juxtaposition to pristine white dainty womanhood. Want to be daring and fashionable? Associate yourselves with one of these grimy cultures (that no one even understand on the most shallow of levels) and it’s suddenly so horrifying it’s avant garde.
This really, and truly creeps me out deep down to see the real women from various, rich cultures placed in such a box. Only to be opened when a white super model wants to be interpreted as “daring”.
Before you can grow up, you must fall in love 3 times.
Once you must fall in love with your best friend, ruining your friendship forever. This will teach you who your true friends are, and the fine line between friendship and more.
Once you must fall in love with someone you believe to be perfect. You will learn that no one is perfect, and that you should never be treated as any less than you deserve.
And once you must fall in love with someone that is exactly like you. This will teach you about who you are, and who you want to be.
And when you’re through with all that, you learn that the people who care about you the most are the ones that you hurt, and the ones that hurt you are the ones that you needed the most.
But most of all, you learn that love is only a concept and is not something that can be defined, it is different to each person that experiences it. And you will learn to respect each and every person on this earth, knowing that everyone only wants to be loved.”
**four times, actually. You forgot the one that’s horrible for you, the “bad boy” or “bad girl.” The one that exhausts you, neglects you, the one that you want to change so badly, but never will. The one that breaks your heart the hardest, but made you feel so damn alive.
