got these in the mail today

the lipsticks are weird rn just bc it’s really hooooot here so they’re melted. the gray will prob look better after the stick has hardened again lol. but man the gray smells soooo much like apples (it’s called ‘granny smith’ so). and ‘nightfall’ is a cool color. the eyeshadows were packaged so nicely *_*

where i got the lipsticks - http://mommabnaturals.com/

where i got the eyeshadows - https://www.etsy.com/shop/FabledFragrances (there was a little bit of a sale when I got them but I guess that’s done now)

Astoundingly awful story of “every day” sexism and racism from @iSmashFizzle.

If you can’t read it here, see this timeline that I put together.

i have some intense feelings abt vampires vs zombies

ask me sometime

ALSO related to shoes

so like ~when i was, you know, still in college~ a prof was saying like how you should buy things that last and then you’re throwing them away less/buying less (obviously this is dependent on if you can afford spending that much $$$ at one time, so you know, that too). and i understand that. but. she was talking about this pair of boots she’s had for a long time. BUT OK DUDE. i’ve never had boots last me very long. Because I wear them. every. single. day. if I have them. like. The only shoes I have that have lasted me a long time are the ones I rarely wear and I keep in this shoe dustcover thingy. And those aren’t even really expensive shoes (i don’t have any Really Expensive Shoes that are like luxury types or whatever), it’s just that i’ve been taking decent care of them by keeping them in a dust cover and mostly that i rarely ever wear them so they get little wear and tear. And I MEAN, I know it’s not like I’ve ever bought shoes that are like 200 dollars or something so maybe those really will hold up under lots of wear. I mean when I pay a “lot’ for my boots it’s at the 50 to 70 dollar range, not ever more, and usually closer to 50. so maybe that’s why they never last  more than a year but like if i wear them every day, i think that’s okay?? it makes sense for something to wear down and also that’s a good amount of use for that amount of money to me.

BUT WHAT I AM SAYING IS. idk if i could justify shelling out at TON of money for shoes bc i just don’t know if they could handle me lol (but if they were docs i would probably shell out the money. there’s always an exception. also bc i feel like docs will actually be able to handle all the wear lol)

ok does anyone know where i can find black boots that look like these like with the wide buckle across the front bc i’ve just discovered that this is a thing that i think is cool

or like what are good search terms to use for it at least so that i can find them easier lol


Edward Said called him “the shrewdest and most original anti-imperialist analyst of Asia and Africa.” Born in Bihar in the early 1930s, Eqbal Ahmad lived a life that criss-crossed the globe; he was a journalist, an activist, and in the words of Noam Chomsky, a “counsellor and teacher.” He arrived in the U.S. in the ’50s as a fellow at Occidental College, later earning a Ph.D. at Princeton. Throughout his life, Ahmad was at the center of key moments in anti-imperialist history. As a young man, he traveled to Algeria, joining the FLN (National Liberation Front) with Frantz Fanon. He was also arrested in France and established a cultural centre in Tunis.
In the ’60s, Ahmad became a powerful voice in opposition to the Vietnam War and U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. Ahmad, alongside several anti-war Catholic activists, was arrested on charges of conspiracy to kidnap U.S. National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger, a case that ended in a mistrial in 1971. Ahmad would go on to hold several teaching positions in the U.S. at the University of Illinois-Chicago, Cornell, and Hampshire College. When asked by the journalist David Barsamian on what he tells his students, Ahmad responded: “I don’t tell them anything. I think that my life and my teachings all point to two morals: think critically and take risks.”

I left a couple of shirts on top of the dryer/in the laundry room bc I need to wash them but they need to be handwashed so I didn’t put them in with the rest of my laundry. My mom just told me “hey if you don’t want this shirt, you can give it to me” and i was like wat. and she was holding my oversized plaid button down thing
