heard the mermaids singing, each to each

"the only way in is to burn"
I wander from time to time but never too far

While a liquid soap dispenser is very convenient, a good old solid bar of soap is a much ‘greener’ option, as it’s more concentrated and doesn’t require a plastic bottle. But squishy, wet soap bars next to the basin are a pain, and they harbour bacteria too. So, what to do? Young designer Nathalie Stämpfli has come up with a very satisfactory solution with her Soap Flakes soap holder. It takes an ordinary bar of soap, and shaves off tiny soap flakes every time you want to wash your hands.

The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

YES.

Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.

“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing

if I’ve learned anything these 23 years it’s that pining isn’t noble.
pining away for love is safe; you’re protected from any new interactions that could actually be fruitful and actually be reciprocated.
I know why I do this. I think people do it for a variety of reasons. but he’s not here and I am so I need to look forward, find what was so, so great in us together with another person. at some point I’ll lie next to someone else and feel thrillingly safe, again. I’ll feel attraction and peace; sure and uncharted. I’ve woken up to different faces but few of them wonderful.

The next time you are in the bathroom.

……..Take your shirt off.

AND stand in front of the mirror.

 

Are you happy with the way you look?

Do you cry and feel hopeless?

Maybe your story is like mine?

Look…I had tried all the “miracles” in a bottle

and invested in some stupid equipment

that looked like a cheap torture device.

Trainers?  Haha..yeah right.

You mean the kids who are 22.

They make us feel like meeting with them

is wasteing their time while they are checking

out the other kids their age. 

You know what im talking about dont you?! 

Then I realized something….

Something that changed my life…

We all end up somewhere ….

but very FEW of us…

End up somewhere on purpose.

So I challenge you …change.

For me, it was Brian that helped.

I chose to not only buy his product but ALSO

to actually DO IT.

I continue to CHOOSE daily to end up somewhere on purpose.

WIll you?

==>I choose to do something and end up somewhere on purpose

 

And if you are still thinking…stop.

Mostly…our choices choose where we end up in life.

You know its true.

Sure there are circumstances beyond our control but we still

have a choice to CHOOSE how to tackle that.

We have a choice to change our habits…to learn to

diet properly to change our fitness and start excercising.

So check it out.  See what im talking about.

But whatever you do…realize this truth…

we all end up somewhere…

but very FEW of us end up somewhere on purpose.

Will you?

"Language is a skin: I rub my language against the other. It is as if I had words instead of fingers, or fingers at the tip of my words. My language trembles with desire."

Roland Barthes, A Lover’s Discourse (via imarinicollette)

(Source: wordsnquotes.com, via misswallflower)

"He calls me a whore, a slut, he says I’m his only love, and that’s what he ought to say, and what you do say when you just let things say themselves, when you let the body alone, to seek and find and take what it likes, and then everything is right, and nothing’s wasted, the waste is covered over and all is swept away in the torrent, in the force of desire. I asked him to do it again and again. Do it to me. And he did, did it in the unctuousness of blood. And it really was unto death. It has been unto death."

Marguerite Duras, from The Lover
