All items in the store are $16 or less.
Even if you can’t buy anything from the store right now or none of it suits your personal aesthetic, share the link around to friends and family that you think might like the styles of jewelry I offer. I appreciate even something small like that.
I dearly wish that people would view their bodies as they view flowers…
Skin patches? Birthmarks?
Scars? Stretch marks?
Freckles? Moles? Acne scars?
Missing a few pieces?
handsome as ever~
Feel like you just look weird?
you’re fantastic looking~
I will never stop reblogging this
Modest is Hottest?
by Sarah Moon
“What would happen if I bought this shirt three sizes too small?” I joked to my sister, as we waited for my mom to finish up her shopping at the Christian bookstore. The shirt in question was a woman’s tee shirt with the words “Modest Is Hottest” across the front.
The sizes seemed to line up with tee shirts you might buy at Abercrombie or one of those other popular mall stores. They ran small, meaning I would have had to buy a large shirt in order to cover up my B cups enough to be “appropriate.” There were no plus size options.
My sister and I found this strange, even back then, when we were high school students at a Baptist school, still fully immersed in purity culture. I still wore a “True Love Waits” ring and used safety pins to alter any immodest clothing, and even then I was starting to learn that modesty—in the church culture I was raised in—isn’t simply about “covering up.” It’s about being a certain kind of woman, in order to serve the desires of certain kinds of men.
if you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?

This is a lion making a kill in the wild. I know it’s very graphic but I think it’s important to show just how brutal nature can be.
when did we replace the word “said” with “was like”
It’s actually pretty cool!
'Was like' allows us to paraphrase easily without claiming the words that follow are verbatim.
So someone telling a story and saying..
Then Jenn said, “I am so done.”
Has a different meaning than…
my hair and i have a very complicated relationship </3

Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.

Said no to sweets when I “needed” comfort food the worst, going to Hapkido when it’s really the last thing I feel like doing this evening—because goals don’t get up and walk themselves to their champions.
Fide et virtute.
The most dangerous person in class is usually a white belt.
One asked to spar me tonight and he tried to do a fast grip exchange but missed my lapel and almost ripped my nipple off.
Stop laughing at me. It hurt.
That is a universal truth, I think. White belts are scary.
And not scary in the way they perceive themselves as scary, either.
