So if you know me you know I’m equally obsessed with home decor and rose gold haha. I’m moving rooms soon and cant wait to do it up.. I’ll more than likely document the process on snapchat haha. So i recently received and bought home decor stuff , so i thought why not share… Soo i LOVE candles , who doesn’t??? I ran out of candles so I recently bought two of these massive ones. I had to buy two because they smell absolutely amazing and i’m pretty sure I’ll have them for a while . There not really strong smelling that can be to overwhelming either. I also got 2 of these cute little candles and Yankee candle burner off a friend. They all smell great and can’t wait to use them! So while shopping yesterday i spotted these jars. I have no idea what I’ll use them for yet but i had to get them , hello look at them haha. I’m sure I’ll find a purpose for them…

I’ve Been Trumped-A story of Failed Friendship

Originally posted on Metal and the Geek:
Oh Donald Trump. The scum of the earth, somehow getting quite close to being the republican candidate, let’s face the horrific truth, he will be. Now many of you might be thinking why do I care, I no longer live in the USA, well I still have friends there, I have family there. I care about them. I want the best for them, and Trump isn’t even qualified to run his own life, you’re supposed to trust him with an entire country? I was waiting for this to happen, and last night it finally did. I lost a friend over her coming clean about her support for Trump. When she said it, I wasn’t shocked, but I had been hoping she was better than that. I was wrong, and I stopped and thought, can I continue this friendship, knowing what you support? Can I convince you of just how awful he is, and how he’s going to tear your country apart? Maybe you will think my reaction to…

Drinking, Smoking, Snogging, Fighting – 21st August 1998

Friday 21stEmma’s now had Daz O’Brien on the phone to warn her off Howler. He’s jealous coz he supposedly fancies Emma too! They’re all going to the cinema tonight. I’ve decided not to coz: – it’s in Wigan with people I don’t really know – Mum’ll worry so I’ll feel guilty – I still don’t feel 100% – Howler was taking the piss out of my name and saving bonds and stuff on the phone last night – I haven’t got the energy – I can’t think straight so I couldn’t get Howler back as well as I probably normally could. I did go round to Emma’s before and just got off the bus here whilst she, Ralph and Freddie carried on to town. Freddie’s after Suzanna the Slapper tonight and so’s another lad. Howler, Daz and Ralph (possibly) are after Emma. Damn, I might be missing a fight. I need some entertainment! Never mind. Whilst Ralph went off with Emma on the way to the bus stop,…

5 Black Hockey Players You Might Not Know Exist

Originally posted on The Collective:
Hockey has often been seen as pretty much a middle-class, white people sport, but the times, they are a-changing. While the majority of players are Canadian, European and (sometimes even) American anglos, there are a number of Black hockey players scattered across the NHL, if you know or care to look. In honor of Black History Month, I’ve put together a list of my top 5 favorite black hockey players of all nationalities for purely altruistic reasons, of course. xoxo C. Diva Just all about hockey over on  Twitter and Tumblr. Seriously. P.k. Subban Born: May 13, 1989 (age 26), Toronto, Canada Current teams: Montreal Canadiens (#76 / Defenseman), Canadian National Men’s Hockey Team (#76 / Defenseman) Pernell Karl “P. K.” Subban is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman and an alternate captain for the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League. P.K. is adorable and one of my favorite players, not just because he’s great at hockey, but because he’s a strong, black man who is passionate about service and the hockey community. Oh, and…

Let’s Talk: Lessons in Patience

Originally posted on Sublunar Reflections:
I haven’t always been a patient person. In fact, for most of my life I’ve been pretty much the exact opposite. I was a teenager with a hot temper, prone to lashing out with the most creative swear words I could come up with, and I frequently yelled at people like my family who didn’t deserve it. But over the last five years I’ve really made an effort to try and be more patient. Especially with people. When I disagree with someone or with the way I’ve been treated, I first try to put things into context. That was the first lesson I learned in patience. At some point I realized that moods have context and that they don’t come from nowhere. Maybe someone is taking out a hard day’s work on their waiter at dinner. Maybe they spoke harshly to their roommate because of a bad grade on a university assignment. There are thousands of potential ways someone could react to what’s going on in their life and unfortunately…
