I’d like to create a deep red lipstick and call it Day 2.

Test your friends by rapping “first things first” and see if they respond with “I eat your brains” or “I’m the realest”

hella dealbreaker

I feel very mature, kind of in the right place for it and I’m very ready to look cute

In case you were wondering, “Two Step” by Throwing Muses is still amazing.

Have you ever come across a homeless individual and felt totally uncomfortable?

You see them and you know they are in need, but you are not sure what to do. You know that handing them money is not the best thing. But, you also see that they clearly have some needs. Their lips are chapped. They are hungry. They are thirsty. They are asking for help.

How can you help?

Here is a simple idea - blessing bags.
This was such an easy project. We are now going to keep a few “Blessing Bags” in our car so that when we do happen to see someone on the streets who is homeless, we can hand them a Blessing Bag. I first learned of these bags from my friend, Julie. I am using the picture of her bags (see above) because the ones we took were taken in horrible lighting and turned out really grainy and hard to see what is inside of them.

If you’d like to make your own Blessing Bags, this is what you would need:

Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
chap stick
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
comb
soap
trail mix
granola bars
crackers
pack of gum
band aids
mouthwash
coins (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
hand wipes
you could also put in a warm pair of socks, and maybe a Starbucks gift card

Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.

This would be a great activity to do with some other families. Each family could bring one of the items going into the bags (ex: toothbrushes). Set up all the items around a table and walk around it with the ziplocks and fill the bags.

oh man i wanna do this

mee tooo. im bout to go to the dollar tree and rack up or a wholesale store.

All these reblogs make me so happy to see. So many amazing people on tumblr

random acts if kindness

please include a couple pairs of socks actually! Socks are among the most highly desired clothing item for homeless individuals

So… why is handing them money “not the best thing”…? Because you believe that their choices alone led them to their current positions, and so when stranded on the edge of society, they can’t be entrusted with the responsibility of a fucking five dollar bill because you can’t see the receipts? 
Honestly, I admire the sentiment and desire to help. But I have to say this: this is exactly the kind of useless do-gooder bullshit that pisses me off; the kind that makes people feel good about themselves for doing little to nothing to deserve it. “Blessing bags.” Fuck you. I’ve gotten out of the grocery store with better swag bags. There’s barely enough in there to constitute a single meal, and SOAP? For people with no showers? Mini-deodorants for people who can’t use the soap? What’s a little b/o when you live on the god damned street? A few days worth of toothpaste? A big tube will last three centuries. Don’t get me started on Band-Aids. And Tylenol, for what?! Chronic depression and schizophrenia? How about a burger, a beer, a bottle of Xanax, and a blanket. Or better yet, you could let them decide.
If you really want to help, there are countless ways to do it. Places that need donations. Volunteers. Homeless people typically need blankets and shoes. And meals - whole ones, not just snacks! They also need money. Call your mayor, your senator, your governor, sponsor a fundraiser, have a bake sale… But whatever the fuck you do, don’t slap them in the face with a fucking bag of party favors.
