Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable.
Do you think toners are essential for skincare and if you do, which one do you use or would recommend?
nah not essential but greatly appreciated. i really love toner personally — it makes sure i get all the gunk off my face, and it cools my skin, which makes it less red. i think it’s really beneficial to my skincare routine, personally. i’m incredibly faithful to the mario badescu toners — i use the acne toner (i think it’s really called the chamomile cleansing lotion?) at the behest of my facialist, but before that i used the cucumber toner for a long time. i think we awarded it best toner when i was assisting in office at teen vogue? we all really loved it.
cheaper option would be…the timebalm white cucumber toner.
i had a crush on this guy and i decided to pull a Pavlov on him by offering him whenever i saw him this brand of candy he seemed to really like and after a while whenever he saw me he got excited for a second then you could see his expression shift to wondering the why the hell was he so happy to see me and i swear it was the evilest thing but also the most hilarious i made a guy like me by conditioning him into associating me to a candy he liked
sorry this is like dumb do you think the guy wouldn’t remember you always give him your favorite candy it’s not like it’s normal to give ppl candy
