I just want to thank you for giving me the courage to put myself first. I'm not afraid to go after what I want anymore. I was being dragged down by a guy who was doing nothing for me. I don't know why I stuck around, he didn't care or respect me. All he wanted was to sleep with me. You answered a question I had asked days ago, and made me realize he should just ''go kick rocks'' :) I'm so better off without him. It feels like I have a HUGE weight off my shoulders. I don't have to please him anymore. I'm free <3 Sure it hurts, and I miss him, but there's no way I'm going back. I'm putting myself first, not him. I just want to thank you one last time - thank you! :) <3
you are so very welcome. i think you should give yourself so much credit. it takes an amazing amount of courage to walk away. youre very very brave and stand as a testament to all of us girls out there!
you have all my support and love. congrats girl. youve got a lot to offer and too much to be wasting it on someone who doesnt appreciate it! xoxoxox
Dear Little Bukowski,
I absolutely adore your blog. Whenever you post, whether it be personal or just the images that appeal to you, my day brightens a bit. I love that you won't mind reaching out to anyone who seeks your help. You have the kindest heart and I hope there are others who can take little cues from you and improve their lives, because I know I have.
Thanks for making my day a little brighter each time <3,
dear sweet kitten face,
this was really so kind of you and so inspiring. what a wonderful reason to keep this tumblr up and running. girls like you are what keep ME happy. i always tell my friends how it is the girls and sweet boys that send me questions and comments and little excerpts from their lives….its this that gives me a purpose and helps me feel whole.
i spend a lot of my time caring for those around me, giving a huge percentage of myself…to friends and family and customers and even strangers. but nothing has ever proven to be as rewarding as coming home to little inbox full of people personally requesting my attention. its one of the most gorgeous compliments i can get. and then going and seeing that they’re connecting to someone like yourself….that’s a true blessing for me.
so to you and to every single little cat reading this:
you guys make my day. one the nights i come home drained and worn down and even at times defeated and sad….your messages are what make my life worth a lot of living <3
this kitten is trying to pay for college tuition and board and has a little tumblr shop. smart cookie, huh? her request to help promote her store is worthy of a little link love <3 so here’s some support! you go little cat! xoxoxo
my boyfriend and i broke up and i always go to text him or call him when i think about him-which is frequently. i know i shouldn't but how do i stop thinking about him? what can i do to get over him and be strong and independent again. i feel empty.
you, little one, get busy on yourself. when you’re sooooo into someone, you tend to stop doing things for you used to enjoy. so now that you have this time, focus on taking care of your little heart and getting out there! going to the gym is always an amazing way to get over a relationship.
a. you can get really mad and run like a little freak on the treadmill (which is what i do, and its the best way to vent EVER)
b. you end up looking and feeling so amazing, youll have a hard time not attracting new handsome mens <3
c. it creates endorphins which help you in those weak times…they keep your spirits up and moving so you dont stop and make bad choices
so make yourself a good little mixtape and get out there. take on the world. <3
I'm really insecure about my body. I have hardcore stretch marks on the sides of my butt and I'm so scared to wear a bikini. . I'm a size 7. I don't see that as really fat or anything so I don't understand why I have stretch marks. Of course I'm no size 2 so maybe that's why. Do you have any advice for me? xoxo.
first of all - size 7 is itty bitty so you are NOT fat or heavy. stretch marks happen due to a fast rate of growth…so while some women may get them due to weight gain, its usually associated with pregnancy. rarely do we gain weight as such a fast pace that our skin doesnt have time to adjust. so you probably have these little marks because you had a growth spurt growing up <3 both men and women get them. (my ex is in super great shape and super thin but he had little baby ones just above his thighs….and i loved them! they made him human. it was like a little snap shot of a time when his legs got too long too fast :)
while there are lots of products out there that suggest they help reduce stretch marks - your best bet little cat is just to sport them and know that probably not a single soul notices them except YOU. and if by chance someone is checking you out that hard, chances are they’re soooo into you that stretch marks are not even a concern on their radar <3
so wear a bikini. go naked. get noticed. you’re a size 7. that’s a pretty sexy size to be!
I was just thinking that maybe you could exPlain the steps you did to get your mermaid look? The first one.. Or the first day. I can't tell if they're the same :) I love it. And maybe you know some tricks to make someone skin look almost perfect with makeup? I swear every Mac girl I see has flawless skin. It's almost unbelievable.
ok - that mermaid makeup i did is really focused around the eyes. explaining via words may be difficult when trying to translate a makeup look but here’s the basic:
1. apply an eyeshadow base to lids (i used soft ochre paint pot)
2. sweep a shimmery shadow across inner corners of lids and up under brow ( i used Kitschmas pigment)
3. choose a green shadow with some shimmer and buff into crease and around outer orbital bone, connecting it to the lower lash line and diffusing it out to just above where the cheek begins (i used luck green shadow)
4. use a nice deep green or olive and carve it into the very out corner of your lip and bottom lash line, giving a heavy smoked look to the edges of your eyes (i used bottle green and greensmoke shadow)
5. next apply a highlight around entire orbital bone, overlapping brow and tops of cheek bones (i use emphasize sculpting powder)
6. pick a dark winged out fluffy lash and add mascara!
and as for making skin look great - i love using a beauty blender sponge slightly damp to apply my foundation. and after powder, i mist my entire face in healthy dose of fix+ finishing spray - it melts your make up into your skin for a creamy flawless look. i lightly stiple my beauty blender once over and my skin is set!
Hello darling! I've been following you for quite a while and I'm completely in love with your blog :) I just enrolled in my first year of college and paying for tuition and rent has been kicking my ass lol. I was wondering if maybe you could tell your followers about my tumblr shop where I'm selling a lot of great things to make some money for school :) It would mean a lot to me xo Thanks so much!
im sorry. i was unable to locate your shop. if you send me a direct link i can take a look and see if it something i feel comfortable promoting <3
Those daisy headbands you created are delightful! How on earth did you make them? They look super sweet :)
thank you! they are so easy! get a little braided head band (i got a pretty pearly one from forever 21) find some fake flowers you adore and clip them off their stems with wire cutters. put a dab of hot glue at their base, and push their little nubby stems through the braid of the headband and let the glue dry. viola! <3
I think one of the reasons why you're so beautiful is that you aren't full of yourself like some people! Your kind personality really shows through on your blog and answered questions, and you never have a conceited attitude like so many these days do. Especially for living in an area full of gorgeous bitches! Major props to you girlfriend, and have a safe and fun trip next week <3
from the bottom of my heart, thank you. i think because i do live in the land of lovely, it has taught me how to never take myself too seriously. there will always be a hundred girls more pretty than i could ever be. i just grew up this really soft and kind at heart kid. and i was always a little strange so it sort of pushed the more conceited girls away. none of those girls want to be friends with the little freckled girl who roller skated everywhere with a little walkman playing The Cars. <3 it taught me that pretty faces are a dime a dozen, but good souls barely exist here.
so thank you. its nice to be noticed from time to time <3
ill post tons of photos from my trip! i leave wed!
Im such a stalker but ive seen your videos on youtube and you are like the prettiest thing ever. You make me want to move to Cali but it just wouldnt be the same the way you do things lol
thank you so much! you SHOULD move to california. its an amazing place to live - sunsets and beaches and big buildings and good mexican food. you’d so make it your own! that’s the nice thing about this place…it sort of melts around you and conforms to what you are. <3
