This is annoying tbh

bodilyautonomy:

Some peoples’ mindset of ~all opinions are equally valid~ will never cease to amaze me because wow, there are a lot of really fucking shitty mindsets out there and how in the world could you possibly be okay with all of them? Who is so devoid of conviction and belief in their own morals that they actually think that all opinions on the planet are just fuckin’ dandy?

newsflash: SOME OPINIONS SUCK THE WAD

Thank you all for following me and supporting my work! To thank you properly I thought I’d do a little giveway so here we go!

The prize:

The winner will receive one of my new skirts (pictured above) and it will be fully custom!

You can choose between pencil or skater style, whichever velvet appliqué design you want OR a custom appliqué design (must be a silhouette and simple enough for it to be translated into appliqué), you don’t even need to have appliqué if you’d prefer it plain! You can have pockets or no pockets, whichever colour you want (depending on the fabric colours available, of course.) It can also be custom sized if you require it so ANY size can enter (seriously, you could be a size 0 or a size 40, I will make it for you!) The only thing I will not change is the length, unless it’s only by 10cm or so.

Rules:

  • Reblog to enter! Likes do not count and you can only reblog twice a day so you aren’t spamming your followers
  • You must be following my brand, corvuscoronefashion-photography (I will check!)

whats the meaning of life? son, its those little tiny pumpkins. the ones that are mad small.  you know the ones i mean. 

Why is it that people are willing to spend $20 on a bowl of pasta with sauce that they might actually be able to replicate pretty faithfully at home, yet they balk at the notion of a white-table cloth Thai restaurant, or a tacos that cost more than $3 each? Even in a city as “cosmopolitan” as New York, restaurant openings like Tamarind Tribeca (Indian) and Lotus of Siam (Thai) always seem to elicit this knee-jerk reaction from some diners who have decided that certain countries produce food that belongs in the “cheap eats” category—and it’s not allowed out. (Side note: How often do magazine lists of “cheap eats” double as rundowns of outer-borough ethnic foods?)

Yelp, Chowhound, and other restaurant sites are littered with comments like, “$5 for dumplings?? I’ll go to Flushing, thanks!” or “When I was backpacking in India this dish cost like five cents, only an idiot would pay that much!” Yet you never see complaints about the prices at Western restaurants framed in these terms, because it’s ingrained in people’s heads that these foods are somehow “worth” more. If we’re talking foie gras or chateaubriand, fair enough. But be real: You know damn well that rigatoni sorrentino is no more expensive to produce than a plate of duck laab, so to decry a pricey version as a ripoff is disingenuous. This question of perceived value is becoming increasingly troublesome as more non-native (read: white) chefs take on “ethnic” cuisines, and suddenly it’s okay to charge $14 for shu mai because hey, the chef is ELEVATING the cuisine.

Kangaroo and Wombat are Best Friends

A couple of cute animals kangaroo Anzac and wombat Peggy became stars of the Internet. Both orphans – they were in a cage in the center of the rescue of wild animals in Victoria, Australia. And there they became big friends.
