My favorite sunscreen line EVER. Amazing. No residue or grease at all, and organic to boot!
I’ve never seen a photo of Olivia where she wasn’t perfectly put together. I love her style, and have been realizing that it’s a lot of fun to experiment with fashion. My favorite thing is finding items that look expensive but aren’t - it’s easier than you think!
Smart TVs are very limited in what apps you can use, and their visual interface is far less evolved. A better option is to get the $79 Roku box which turns any TV into a Smart TV and gives you every app you ever wanted, plus a ton of other fun perks. I also recommend Netflix and Amazon Prime. Nowadays, there’s almost no reason for regular cable tv or satellite!
"What she should have been asking herself, she thought, was not whether she was attractive to anyone or whether they hated her, but whether, at this stage in her life, she wanted anyone to be attracted to her at all."
I think a better question to ask yourself is: Who am I attracted to, and why? Who do I hate, and why? (Hate is a useless emotion, but that’s another topic!)Sam Byers, Idiopathy: A Novel (via whiskeysoaked)
10 Words That You’ve Probably Been Misusing
What you may think it means: a tragedy, an unfortunate event
What it actually means: a mockery; a parody
This one, I’ll admit, is my own personal error. For the longest time, I equated travesty with tragedy, mostly because in passing, they sound like the same word. It’s stupid, I know, but if you knew how many times I confused fetal position with beetle position, you wouldn’t be laughing. It’s a serious problem.
What you may think it means: a funny coincidence
What it actually means: contrary to what you might expect
It’s not ironic that you bumped into a talking turtle in a sweater vest right after you told your friend how cool it would be to bump into a talking turtle in a sweater vest. It’s a coincidence, and believe it or not, those two words are not related. Also, you should probably lay off the drugs because I’m pretty sure animals shouldn’t be talking.
What you may think it means: to skim or glance over something
What it actually means: to review something carefully/in-depth
How this definition got completely turned on its head, I’ll never know, but I’ll be sure never to say “I’m going to go peruse my math textbook” ever again, just in case someone overhears and tries to hold me to it under the real meaning.
What you may think it means: amused
What it actually means: confused
Again, with the whole “words sounding alike” issue. I’m starting to think I just need hearing aids. This is getting out of hand.
What you may think it means: to willingly do something, to feel like you need to do something
What it actually means: to be forced to do something (willingly or unwillingly)
The word you’re looking for is “impelled.” I agree, it doesn’t get enough attention.
What you may think it means: to feel sick
What it actually means: to cause nausea
When you eat too much ice cream and declare to your mom or the nearest adult, “I feel nauseous,” what you’re actually saying is that you are causing people around you to feel sick. Thanks, jerk. (For the record, “I’m nauseated” is the way to go.)
What you may think it means: to hold a conversation
What it actually means: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING
This word is a mix of conversation and converse, and doesn’t actually exist, like unicorns or YOUR DREAMS. (I’m kidding. Unicorns are totally real.)
What you may think it means: repetitive
What it actually means: superfluous, able to be cut out
“Including this sentence is redundant because you already mentioned your love of Santa Claus in the previous paragraph.” This has always been my exposure to the word redundant, so it only makes sense that I would think repetitive was correct. I can’t be the only one? Right? RIGHT?
What you may think it means: enormousness
What it actually means: extreme evil
I don’t know where the “extreme evil” thing came from (probably the Devil) but enormity makes more sense as enormousness in my mind.
What you may think it means: awesome, fantastic
What it actually means: causing terror
Okay, so “causing terror” is more of an outdated definition but I still thought it was interesting. Maybe keep this fun fact in the back of your mind the next time you call your favorite camper, “Terrific Tommy,” because technically, a few decades ago, that might have been an insult. Unless instead of a camper, he’s a serial killer. In that case, go for it.
If you hate your parents, the man, or the establishment, don’t show them up by getting wasted and wrapping your car around a tree. If you really want to rebel against your parents: outlearn them, outlive them, and know more than they do.Henry Rollins
You are not an apology
do not treat yourself like one
Cunt again? It was odd how men … used that word to demean women when it was the only part of a woman they valued.Asha Greyjoy, A Dance With Dragons (via neolution)
They keep rebooting, recasting male superheroes and their films. You think they will ever like at least make a first attempt at an untouched female driven superhero film? If not, then at least redo one, and perhaps make her something beyond a sex kitten? Beyond relationship minded? Give her some sort of struggle, or flaw, or personality, or all of the above? Maybe instead of form fitting clothes, maybe useful form fitting clothes? Just thinking out loud.
I feel like men are more romantic than women. When we get married we marry one girl.
Cause we’re resistent the whole way, until we meet one girl and we think: “I’d be an idiot if I didn’t marry this girl she’s so great.”
But it seems like girls get to a place where they just kinda pick the best option or something. I know girls that married they’re like: “Oh he’s got a good job.”
I mean, they spend their whole life looking for Prince Charming and then they marry the guy who’s got a good job and is gonna stick around.
