Photography is my hobby and my passion. Mostly digital or phone photos, though I'm starting to break into film as well πŸ“·
everything in my photography tags belongs to me

I also reblog things I'm interested in and love seeing and sharing any kind of art on here πŸ–€

i've had really bad facial skin issues since middle school, and since early october i've been cleaning my face every couple days with baby oil (though i've heard that olive oil also works the same way) instead of soaps and honestly this is the clearest and healthiest my skin has ever felt and i would suggest it to anyone who's having any kind of problems with their skin care routine

how i do it under the cut and it's extremely simple


wash your hands well and pour some baby oil on them (i just use the big bottle from the dollar tree) and just rub the oil all over your dry, uncleaned face.

i let it sit for a couple minutes, then take a dry paper towel folded up and wipe it down my face in vertical lines while unfolding the paper towel to get another clean part to wipe with. you can see the dirt coming off onto the towel

then when my face is mostly clear of the oil i take another paper towel and run it under warm water and ring it out and just use that to remove any excess oil or dirt residue

i've never had a problem with feeling greasy afterwards or anything but if you're worried about it you could just spot clean a small area like your T-zone or something to see how it works

i've only used about 1/4 of the bottle and i've been using it for months so it doesn't take very much and i'm really happy with the results


ya know, i really have put in an honest effort trying to advertise for this site, but my biggest following IS on this site. i have numbers-wise more followers on tumblr but i haven't had an interaction on there in MONTHS and most of my text posts get completely ignored

i feel like a lot of us are here because we either quit other social media or weren't getting any interaction from other social media so now there's just kind of no one who cares to listen on other sites


started playing new leaf again to get ready for new horizons and i love it so much that i've already significantly cut down on playing pocket camp so much and i'm probably going to quit it completely for a while when nh comes out


moving still makes me super nervous but i am excited to have a whole new environment to explore and new places to visit, and hopefully new friends to make


awepossum asked:

🎑🧁

🎑-Have you been to an amusement park or fair? What was your favorite thing there if you have?
i love going to amusement parks and fairs! when i was a kid i went to so many yearly little county fairs, and i went to the missouri state fair a couple times. i was also in 4-h and brought my show ducks to a couple fairs to be judged. i also always did that school thing where you got a free ticket to six flags for so many hours of reading so for like 6 years in a row i went to six flags st louis.
my favorite thing is always just the whole aesthetic honestly. i love how the rides look and all the colors and different booths set up specifically to catch your eye. i love the rides in amusement parks but i'm more wary of carnival rides after seeing some horrific videos. but i could just wander around and take in the looks and smells for hours

🧁-Favorite dessert?
cheese cake with cherries β™₯


i'm almost finished with the second Eragon book and i'm so excited to read the next one. i love the feeling of just being completely captured by a series

🐢-Favorite animal or animals?
tbh animals in general are a big special interest of mine and i'm just fascinated by every single one of them, buuut if i had to pick some of my top favorites would be cats, orcas, artic foxes, narwhals, and deer (white tail, and mule deer are my favorite deer species)

🌧️-Favorite weather?
answered here

πŸ›Œ-Are you an early bird or night owl? What's your favorite time of day or night?
i'm very much a night owl. sleeping is hard for me so i usually stay up too late and wake up too late to be able to fall asleep again at a normal time. my favorite time of the night is around 1-3 am when most people are completely asleep and there aren't really any outside sounds and you can just sit outside and not have to see a single person

🌎-If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go? Or, what's your favorite place you have visited?
answered here

πŸŽ„-Favorite holiday?
halloween! i'm really into the more elegant/gothic style decor that they've been making for the past few years, and all the goofy little pumpkin/ghost/skeleton knick knacks are just adorable. october is the month i'm happiest


princeofdoom asked:

πŸ’πŸŒŽπŸŒ§οΈπŸ•οΈ

πŸ’-Favorite flowers or plants?
my fave flowers are orchids

🌎-If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go? Or, what's your favorite place you have visited?
i've always wanted to go to alaska to go on a whale watching boat to see orcas and/or narwhals (though i don't know if any exist for narwhals specifically?)

🌧️-Favorite weather?
when it's a little gloomy out with a light drizzle and a little tunder but it's in the distance and getting fainter. ideally if you don't have anything to do and you can just relax and read or listen to music over the sound of the rain

πŸ•οΈ-Have you ever been camping?
i used to go camping every year when i was a kid but i haven't done it as an adult, though i would really like to. i'm kind of afraid of tents now though and i don't think i could feel safe in one again as an adult. i'd use a camper in a heartbeat though!


mcatnip asked:

🏰

🏰-If you could live in any kind of building (castle, skyscraper, etc.), what kind would you live in?
i would 100% live in a castle but it would have to have electricity and plumbing. i can even deal with a wood fire heating system and no a/c but i've gotta have wifi and a normal bathroom. i'd also live in a hobbit hole β™₯


flowerfemme asked:

🧸-Do you still have stuffed animals/plushies? If so, which one is your favorite?

i have SO many plushies! most are packed up right now but when we move i want to display them on bookshelves and one of those stuffed animal nets you hang in a corner!

my favorite plush is this like 2 foot stuffed yellow lab that my aunt and great grandma bought me when i was like 5-7 ish? i named him rusty and i've still got him, though he's in pretty terrible shape now lol.

The Drug in Me is You (Reimagined)
Falling in Reverse

I heard a knock upon my door the other day
I opened it to find death staring in my face
The feel of mortal stalking still reverberates
Everywhere I go, I drag this coffin just in case

My body's trembling sends shivers down my spine
Adrenaline kicks in, shifts into overdrive
Your secrets keep you sick, your lies keep you alive
Snake eyes every single time you roll with crooked dice

I felt the darkness as it tried to pull me down
The kind of dark that haunts a hundred-year-old house
I wrestle with my thoughts, I shook the hand of doubt
Running from my past, I'm praying "Feet, don't fail me now"

I've lost my goddamn mind
It happens all the time
I can't believe I'm actually
Meant to be here
Trying to consume
The drug in me is you
And I'm so high on misery
Can't you see?

I've got these questions always running through my head
So many things that I would like to understand
If we are born to die and we all die to live
Then what's the point of living life if it just contradicts?

I felt the darkness as it tried to pull me down
The kind of dark that haunts a hundred-year-old house
I wrestle with my thoughts, I shook the hand of doubt
Running from my past, I'm praying "Feet, don't fail me now"

I've lost my goddamn mind
It happens all the time
I can't believe I'm actually
Meant to be here
Trying to consume
The drug in me is you
And I'm so high on misery
Can't you see?

I've lost myself
You tried to reach me, but you just can't help me
So long, goodbye
You tried to save me, it won't work this time
'Cause now

I've lost my fucking mind
And there's no fucking time
I can't believe I'm actually
Meant to be here
Trying to consume
The drug in me is you
And I'm so high on misery
Can't you see?
Can't you see?
Can't you see?
Can't you, can't you
Can't you see?

Can't you see?

i deleted my kidcore blog and i'm going to start reposting the photos from there to this blog

i created it for the same reason i created my kidcore tumblr blog, and it all came from a place of shame an embarassment of liking childish things and i felt like i needed to have a separate place for my photography that was more colorful or silly and honestly i'm just trying to accept that i am who i am and i don't need to hide entire huge parts of my personality based on weird rules that i created for myself


naiad -

I'm 100% keeping @thrift as a side-blog though cause that's just its own thing and it's less for photos that i actually feel passionately about and more just for fun things found in secondhand shops
