the beautiful thing that awaits us all.

bourbon, black clothes & thinking about the abyss. sagittarius. i spend a lot of time daydreaming about being a vampire queen with a legion of pet bats.

In Norse Mythology, Hel was the Daughter of Loki and goddess of the underworld (keeper of the dead), Niflheim. She was thrown into Niflheim by Odin, who decreed that she must rule over men who died of sickness or old age. She was frightening to look at. In some accounts she reclines on a bed called Disease and half of her body is rotting and decayed. In other accounts half of her face is flesh and half is blank. In other accounts half of her face is flesh and half is blue. In the Prose Edda book Gylfaginning, her appearance is described as half-black/decayed and half-flesh colored, and as further having a gloomy, down-cast appearance. The Scandinavian word Hel originally simply meant the place where the dead go, but this became personified into the goddess Hel. The English word, Hell, naturally derives from the Scandinavian. She had playing key role in the attempted resurrection of the god Balder.

I always loved her.

Britney Spears - What U See (Is What U Get) - Oops!…I Did It Again

I can’t have no chains around me, baby can’t you see
I could be anything you dream of, but I gotta feel free
You should never try to change me
I can be nobody else
And I like the way I am

Ghost Bat - Macroderma gigas
The Ghost Bat belongs to the species Macroderma gigas (Chiroptera - Megadermatidae), and gains its rather spooky name from its unusually pale coloration. 
As in other members of the Megadermatidae, the eyes are relatively large, and the impressively long ears are joined at the base, with a forked tragus (a small pointed eminence of the external ear) that partly covers the ear opening, while a long, erect nose leaf projects above the snout.
This species, classified as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, is native to Australia and is also known as Australian false vampire bat, Australian ghost bat, Australian giant false vampire bat.

If this is what you call “pretty”, what planet are you from? Her eyes are sunken, her skin looks pasty, she’s got massive circles around her eyes, her eyebrows look fake… What is wrong with society and its interpretation of beauty? Beauty is NOT the size 0 “models” you see strutting down the runway, collarbones and wrist bonesand just about every bone on show, either overly-made up or no makeup whatsoever so they look gaunt and horrible. Beauty is being beautiful inside, as well as outside. Being beautiful on the inside is 90% of beautiful. If you have a nice personality, you’ll automatically appear more beautiful to other people. I’m about a size 8 or a 10, and I’m completely fine with that. I’m not into exercise, I will swim and I horse ride, but I’m not overly into running or athletics so you won’t see me in the Olympic or Paralympic Games any time soon (although you may want to watch out for me on the equestrian circuit in the near future). I don’t WANT to be skinny, it’s not a good look. I don’t WANT to have a thigh gap. I don’t WANT my collarbones to stick out. I don’t NEED any of that. It’s unhealthy, and if beauty means being unhealthy,
Society is really fucked up.

The only part of society thats fucked up is the fact that women like yourself feel the need to bring down other women. What the fuck is wrong with you? Because she totally gets a choice in what colour her skin is and if her eyes are sunken you rude bitch, I’m pasty for one and I was fucking born like that?????? unless i fake tan which takes a damn lot of TIME AND MONEY then I’m gonna remain fucKING PASTY??????? SOME peoples collarbones naturally stick out, SOME people are naturally skinny, people who are pasty are BORN pasty, SOME people cant help how their eyes look and if someone wants to have eyebrows like that, who the fuck gave you the right to judge them? Damn girl if you wanna say societies fucked up, look at yourself right in the mirror. Taking all your insecurities out on a girl you have no idea the first thing about, how fucking sad is this.. Everyone is great in their own way no matter how they choose to do their eye brows or what colour their skin, stop bringing people down this is the most fucked up comment I’ve ever seen. STOP BRING OTHER WOMEN DOWN FOR WHAT THEY CHOOSE TO DO AND LOOK LIKE. YOU DONT WANNA LOOK LIKE HER? COOL, NO ONES FORCING YOU TO! NO NEED TO RIP IN TO HER LOOKS THAT SHE WAS FUCKING BORN WITH.

ALL WOMEN ARE REAL, ALL WOMEN HAVE BEAUTY, IF YOU ARE A WOMAN AND YOU PUT DOWN AND BELITTLE OTHER WOMEN IN ANY CAPACITY, YOU GET THE FUCK OFF THE PLANET CUZ YOU FUCKED UP YOU NEED TO SIT DOWN AND LEARN #yesallwomen

Moon flowers, yes? My grandmother loved these, we have them planted in our garden :)

wow

this video is also probably not sped up at all, seeing these in person is one of my most fond childhood memories. I used to sit and wait for hours at sunset.
