Taking a break.

You know the deal now,

I’ll come back soonish

Maybe the huge number of followers I gained after that one post went viral will dwindle down to more sane numbers.

Peace, love and red lipstick kisses.

Are they stylish or just beautiful?

Are they stylish or just slim?

Can a not slim person wear that and still be called classy?

Fashion websites make me tired.

My vainness is a direct affront to the years I was told I was ugly… not unattractive, incredibly ugly. 

For years I was ridiculed for daring to beautify myself - the let’s laugh at her for using powder and lipgloss episode is forever seared into my memory, not forgetting the many “why would you even bother?”s or “why did you smile? it’s ugly”. I was teased, taunted and mocked for looking at myself in a mirror, for daring to try to see beyond the hate that was levelled against me.

So now when I say I’m perfect, even if I might not believe it, you will sit and listen and I dare you to say otherwise.

All of that is nice however until people subtly remind you of how less than ideal you are.

galaxie-rot replied to your post:Face
ooo this is fascinating, i always find myself observing people on the train then wondering if i’m being creepy but continuing to do so anyway loool inquisitive people problems

Heh. I’ve always been a nosy person, and London is filled with so many interesting looking people.
I entertain myself most times by either describing them so I can go back and revel in the memory of the moment or I imagine what their life stories are.
I often wonder what sequence of events led them to sharing that space with me at that particular point in time and what they’d go on to do after we go our separate ways.
I also wonder how they see me and if they have the same thoughts like I do or if I’m nothing more than a nondescript blurred face to them.
I find it oddly satisfying as my journeys can sometimes be very boring :)

Face


There was something very unsettling about her face - it was a lot to do with the very obvious lack of uniformity in its individual proportions.

From the pale chalky pallor of her skin to the harsh un-blended lines of rouge on either sides of her face - lines unapologetically bold as if defying anyone to ask her what she sought to prove.
However, what she did have that was lovely was her chin.
It delicately danced the fine line of rounded childish innocence and jutting adult steeliness.
Overall, she had a questioning face - her face made you confront your ideas of beauty and symmetry and question the laws of uniformity in beauty.
She had one of those faces you always caught yourself stealing glances at time and time again.

I stopped posting my writing on here for a number of reasons.

However, if you’ve followed me long enough, you’ll remember my ‘Day on the Underground’ series. The series metamorphosed into this - detailed descriptions/odes to the random people I see (that I’d otherwise have forgotten about) that capture my interest and imagination in a very particular way for a short amount of time.

The only rule I gave myself was that I had to start writing these ‘pieces’ whilst sharing the same space as my subjects.

In truth, I aimed to write and finish them whilst in the same spaceas the subjects so I stayed as true to them as I possibly could.

Ok so i’ve just seen this on my timeline on twitter and quite frankly I’m angry. This is in london and the metropolitan police here are known to be racist. With all that’s going on in America right now i thought I’d shed some light on what’s happening here in the UK. While its illegal to bear arms in this country, the systematic racism and discrimination still remains against black people, men in particular. Racial profiling is an epidemic and with social media at the forefront it’s been easier to really see how often this occurs, Please re blog this and spread this on your dashboard! These racist authorities need to be exposed!

Anonymous said: America is also a continent. I cannot believe that it's 2014 and people from the United States still think of their country as all that there is to America.

You’re absolutely right but let’s not even go into that right now,

This ‘well enlightened’ woman is a white European who unironically thinks that Africa is a country. Expecting her to know that The United States isn’t all there is to America is expecting too much of her sensibilities.

urghhh those are the worst, it’s why i had to delete facebook for my own sanity. like i can’t wait til you hear what she has to say about it irl. she may have a powerpoint presentation prepared with all the bullet points summarising KONY 2012 lmao

LMAO I will cry if she doesn’t. 

essenangstessen replied to your post “essenangstessen replied to your photoset:I’m Yellow, a former work…”

like what is she trying to justify? does she not know the great country of america has a drought in california? and she thought africa was a country? can’t wait for her analysis of the picture, u can tell she has some deep thoughts *cough* ignorance

Oh I would have brought that up, but I’m waiting for her to say more stupid shit. My gripe right now is with the stupid ass picture and what it insinuates. She’s in London, I bet her ignorant ass doesn’t know there’s a major drought in California. She’s one of the fake deep twats who post half thought out things to look enlightened and knowledgeable.
