“You are calm and reposed.
Let your beauty unfold.
Pale white, like the skin
stretched over your bones.
Spring keeps you ever close.
You are second hand smoke.
You are so fragile and thin.
Standing trial for your sins.
Holding onto yourself the best you can.
You are the smell before rain.
You are the blood in my veins.
Call me a safe bet. I’m betting I’m not.
I’m glad that you can forgive.
I’m only hoping as time goes,
you can forget.”—The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot (via momentaryrelapse) (via constantflux) (via quote-book)

We believe a well dressed woman with nothing to say is just a mannequin with DNA.
We believe it’s not your personal style if it belongs to your stylist.
We believe in fashion and all its glorious paradoxes: smart and superficial; exclusive and inclusive; fun and serious; art and commerce.
We believe clothing without accessories is like a party with no cake.
We believe in beauty, as both a science and an art.
We believe age-appropriate fashion isn’t appropriate at any age.
We believe in the fantasy of a glamorous life - and the reality of simply getting through the day.
We believe in those who take issues more seriously than themselves.
We believe in cute, smart guys who make us laugh.
We believe neurotic behavior should be embraced and explored.

We believe in ELLE.
“We do not grow absolutly, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, the present, and the future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”—Anais Nin (via quote-book)
You were never mine to begin with.. It’s crazy how a person isn’t yours but you still get jealous when you see other people talk to em’ or em’ talkin’ to other people. It’s crazy how that person isn’t yours but you still stress & sweat over em’. It’s crazy how that person was never yours but you still feel like you lost em’ to someone else.. Crazy, ain’t it ?
“The great moments of your life won’t necessarily be the things you do. They’ll also be the things that happen to you. Now, I’m not saying you can’t take action to affect the outcome of your life. You have to take action. And you will! But never forget, that on any day, you could step out the front door, and your whole life could change forever. You see the Universe has a plan kids; and that plan is always in motion. A butterfly flaps its wings, and it starts to rain. It’s a scary thought, but it’s also kind of wonderful. All these little parts of the machine constantly working… Making sure that you end up exactly where you’re supposed to be.. exactly when you’re supposed to be there. The right place. At the right time.”—Ted (How I met your mother)
I’m about to start spamming with my picture collection. There is a lot. Prepare yourself.
Also- in advance, I’ve been collecting these pictures for so long, and there are so many of them, that I have lost track of the credit. If any of them are yours or you would like to take credit for them, please, just let me know.
This began when after being on tumblr for like.. a half a minute, she already has more people following her than I do…. MADNESS I say!
So we’re no engaged in a battle of who can become “tumblr famous” faster. So tell your friends, your family, everyone in your life to not follow her and to instead just come and follow me. Because clearly, I am better than her…. the fool.
i was very nervous coming in to this school year. moving out on my own for the first time was a daunting enough task, moving to a new city, and having just fallen out with all the people i knew in said city was terrifying and nerve wracking. i was scared, nervous, anxious, and doubting myself. on top of this was the idea of living with girls for the first time. i have two brothers, have predominately male friendships, did not get along with girls and had very little experience on living with women. the experiences i had were all negative influences.
i was scared to move in; worried that my new housemates would be unkind, or disregard me; i hoped to make a good impression and new friends. moving in and living with these people was daunting and i won’t lie, a bit like tightrope walking. i was on edge a lot trying to be funny, friendly, witty and nice in a house of all women.
and then i got to know you, my friending soulmate. after a night of chatting aimlessly, our mutual love of motown music, and blogs, we bonded. i found someone i could talk to and relate to, a friend whose constant cheerfulness inspired me to be more positive; a lady whose optimism inspired me to look on the brightside of thing; a woman who stayed up until all hours of the nighyt working constantly on assignments, which in turn lead me to a better work ethic.
and now, i find myself at a loss. i didn’t know i would get so close to such a wonderful lady in such a short time. and i’m faced with a new challenge: the challenge of you leaving. i know that you moving out is not the end, that it is the beginning of the rest of your life, of your future as a brilliant teacher. and i know that you moving away is not you leaving me forever, but i’m still going to miss you.
so thank you steffi, for teaching me about what makes someone wonderful, and for inspiring me to be more happy and positive. for being there to talk to late at night, for posting hundreds of wonderful pictures, for encouraging me and eating the cupcakes i baked. thank you for buying poutine with me late at night, and for staying up watching bad tv with me. for allowing me to watch law and order nine times a day, and for listening to me read my english papers out loud. thanks for the advice, and the awesomeness that i generally associate with you. i will miss you woms.
“Anyone who is in love is making love the whole time, even when they’re not. When two bodies meet, it is just the cup overflowing. They can stay together for hours, even days. They begin the dance one day and finish it the next, or - such is the pleasure they experience - they may never finish it. No eleven minutes for them.”—Eleven Minute by Paulo Coelho (via quote-book)
