    I love TooGoodToGo all of this sushi cost me £3.50 (the chinese food cost me £3.59)

    YOOOOOOO, they’re formalizing this?!?!

    I used to do community service at a community breakfast, we’d go to the local Safeway and get all their stale bread, the local bakery for their stale baked goods and whatnot.

    They throw away so much food it’s ridiculous, I’m glad someone finally created a program like this!

    The American app isn’t available everywhere but if you’re broke in NY or Boston, check it out!

    The US app logo currently looks like this and was last updated 3 weeks ago (as of January 25th 2020)

    TooGoodToGo is available in many European countries, including the UK, much of Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Poland, Italy and the Iberian peninsula.

    In Canada we have flash food, I dont know if it’s just confined to loblaw stores but you can get food that stores have to throw out for dirt cheap

    I know I reblogged this once already but I’m back to say there’s an Australian version!

    YWaste has been around since 2017 apparently, so they’re quite well established if you’re Australian and in need of options

    I used to be broke and knowing about this app would have been extremely helpful. Hope it helps some of you folks out there ❤️

    If you are a larger gentleman, and wish to partake of the dress-wearing experience, please accept these tips to help fit your first dress!

    1) You want something with stretch in it. Dresses are (often) built for people with boobs, and until you get familiar with how they fit your specific body, trying something super-stiff will 100% end in tears. I promise you, I am 32 years old, I have been wearing dresses all my life, and I still get pissed at dressing room mirrors because who the fuck designs some of these. There are fitted, tailored dresses designed by sane people who expect that their clothes will be worn by human beings, and they will make you look fine as fuck, but make your life easy and don’t start with them.

    2) Dress sizes were designed by sixteen ferrets on crack and are not consistent between brands, styles, or vintage vs modern. Use them as a guideline, not a rule, and don’t let them upset you. Very often they’re adjusted in order to target a specific audience.

    3) Lauren by Ralph Lauren is an amazing plus-size brand. Both of my fitted dresses are Lauren dresses, and that isn’t because I’m a label snob, it’s because I try on a dress that I think looks good and I go “YEEEEEEEEEESSSSS” and then pull it off and look at the label and go “ … . why am I surprised?” When you’re ready to branch out into fitted dresses, I strongly recommend finding your local Macy’s or Nordstrom and checking out their Lauren section. Even if you don’t buy anything from that section, it will give you a much better idea of how fitted dresses should look (flattering!) and feel (comfortable!).

    4) Empire waists are your enemy. Those are the ones with the raised waistline that, on someone with boobs, sits right beneath said appendages. They will 1) ride up and 2) make you look pregnant, and without breasts to fill out the cups it’ll look like you don’t know how to fit your size. It does not matter who you are or how tall you are, if you’re above like a size four, empire waists are not going to be comfortable or give you the look you want. Just save yourself the time.

    5) Arm holes on a sleeveless dress do not fit like arm holes on a tank top. They’re cut differently. Before you buy, MAKE SURE you cross your arms over your front and give yourself the biggest hug you can. Then put your arms behind you as far as you can. If you feel the fabric snag or chafe, you will end up wasting your money because the dress will be stupidly uncomfortable. You might be able to fix this by getting the same dress one size up, but if you choose to try one size up, prepare yourself for disappointment first. It’s often a sign of poor design or craftsmanship.

    6) Part of trying on your dress should be SITTING DOWN. If this isn’t a dress you plan to wear with tights or leggings, you need to make sure it covers the backs of your thighs. (Either that, or you need to resign yourself to peeling yourself off chairs, and that fucking hurts.)

    7) If you wear a mix of different underwear types, make sure you wear boxers when you go to try on dresses. Nothing will suck more than throwing on your dress and realizing you can see your shorts very easily underneath.

    eShakti is also good for custom sized dresses.

    My ancestors, watching me dump an entire stick of cinnamon, two cloves, an allspice berry, and a generous grating of nutmeg into my tea, sweetened with white sugar and loaded with cream, while I sit in my clean warm house surrounded by books, 25+ outfits for different occasions, and 6 pairs of shoes, in a building heated so well I have the windows open in mid-autumn:

    Our daughter prospers. We are proud of her. She has never labored in a field but knows riches we could not have imagined.

    I like this so much better than the idea that our ancestors would be embarrassed or ashamed of us for being “soft” or some crap like that.

    My ancestors watching me use my stand mixer while living in a small apartment and attending university: Thou hast kneadeth bread in FOUR hail marys??? FOUR??? And thou ist poor as a churchmouse, yet liveth in a fine cottage with four pounds butter and fresh berries in thy larder!! And two featherbeds! And thou attendeth the King’s college, as a lord!!

    Air rights in America are 500ft above the tallest building in urban areas. Below that is considered the property of the owner. The police are effectively on their property without a warrant. Shoot them down and file a lawsuit immediately

    Rebloging for the legal solution to a problem that has only been adressed physically until now.

    rereading agot and ned’s chapters and it feels so chilling. everyone is begging him, literally begging him, to do something and still, he chooses passivity at every turn. the scene with renly is particularly telling. we know ned knows robert is going to die, we’ve seen the king from his pov, we know ned understands the gravity of the situation. and yet, he says coldly : maybe the king will live. maybe I don’t have to act. maybe it’s okay to send all my guards away. it’s like... an utter refusal to face the truth transformed into some sort of unconscious death wish. he’s been told times and times again he will die if he doesn’t act and yet, he stands motionless as his dissociative episodes linked to lyanna keep returning and returning and returning... like he is in king’s landing. brandon died there and his father and rhaegar’s children and everything is oh so heavy... he’s in such a fragile state

    Weird peeve time. Calling lab grown gemstones "fake" is stupid because it's the same shit just not formed naturally. An artificially grown diamond is the same shit as a natural diamond it is the exact same material bro it's all fuckign carbon

    spacefroggity

    It's carbon it's pretty and it didn't involve slave labor what's not to love??? Hi I'm having geology opinions tonight apparently. And I'm right

    spacefroggity

    There is so much bullshit in the diamonds industry to be mad about tbh. It also ties into the bullshit of the wedding industry as a whole but we don't have the time to unpack all that

    not even going to lie, the day i learned i could get like 15 lab grown rubies the size of dimes for $20 is the day i spent $20 on rubies, and i have never once said to myself "man, i wish this cost $1,600 and the lives of eight children to produce"

    fuckyeahmineralogy

    We are a pro-lab-grown mineral blog here, not only is it massively cheaper but massively more ethical as well in many cases.

    thegreenpea

    another very cool lab grown gem is Moissanite. It has a 9.25 on the mohs hardness scale where diamond is a 10. Moissanote also has a 2.69 refractive index in comparison to diamond’s 2.419 and here is the difference 

    and the best thing about moissanite? It is all lab grown and it costs only a fraction of what diamond costs. So fuck the diamond indsutry and buy lab grown gems which cost significantly less
