Dublin really turned it on for our first night in @arfabear

Wtfplus ashleynelltipton i cant believe @arfabear

wtfplus:

ashleynelltipton:

I can’t believe that Gabrielle Sidibe is wearing my Unicorn Skirt from my clothing line. It’s amazing to see her wearing it at the #teenchoice awards tonight. Im literally in tears because it’s been a dream of me to see her in my design. Dreams are coming true! #designerashley

hey everyone, plus size designer ashleynelltipton is on this season of project runway, and from what i’ve heard, she’s incredible !

She killed it on the first episode! From what I have seen of her from the show she has a very bold, fearless and fun aesthetic that I personally love! She is very astute in her use of colour, print and texture!

I wish they would bring on a more diverse cast of models to really challenge the designers who haven’t had the experience of designing for and working with clients. There is always that one designer in the “real woman/makeover” challenge who expresses their contempt at clothing a woman whose body doesn’t resemble their dress form.

Yass the imagery for the party associated with @arfabear

Yass,

the imagery for the party associated with the QCC is live mother fuckers!

arfabear:

I spent some time getting to know my glue gun today.

I built a shoulder pad and a few other things for a photo shoot today.

I think it looks kinda cool and the neon and black elastic harnesses were fun also … I will be sure to post the photos of the guys who were modeling when I get them.

These photos don’t really show the detail of all the fake pearls, diamonds and rhinestones I glued on this thing!!

I want that…can I have one in pink, though?

Sure- it took me about an hour and a half and more jewels than I care to mention- I could easily make one in shades of pink!!

I need to see up the elastic harness with the neon pink accents I made for the shoot also- I used pins but the result looked good so I am thinking a fully realized version needs to be a part of my accessory box :)

@noodlesandbeef I didn’t take any photos of our meal last night but I think the lunch I made out of the leftovers still looks pretty good!

I love it when you can have left overs for @arfabear

I love it when you can have left overs for breakfast!

Waking up to a slice of pear, honey and goat cheese tart smothered in blueberries and anise and cinnamon spiced cream!

Hell yeah that makes Monday more bearable!

The rare smile super awesome dinner planned for @arfabear

the rare smile …

Super awesome dinner planned for tonight!

I am making 3 salads: dilled cucumber and red onion, mixed tomato caprese with all local ingredients and a butter lettuce salad that I haven’t figured out the topping for yet.

Argentinian inspired flank steak with homemade chimichurri sauce.

Smashed fried red potatoes topped with a little parmesan.

and for dessert I am making a pear, honey and goat cheese tart - not sure if I am going for a traditional style tart or a galette/free-style tart but I am hand making a wholewheat crust so that should be interesting!!

Chrismenning we petition the obama @arfabear

chrismenning:

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Recognize the Klu Klux Klan as a domestic terrorist organization & make their eradication a Homeland Security priority.

The North Carolina based Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which calls itself the “largest Klan in America, will be speaking outside the North Carolina State House. The groups leader, Robert Jones, has stated that he believes Dylann Roof “was heading in the right direction.” And, “He should have actually aimed at the African-American gang-bangers”

The KKK has been responsible for far too many deaths and too much violence against American citizens in our country’s history. They are terrorists, plain and simple. The White House needs to declare them as such and deny them the legitimacy they currently appreciate. There is no excuse to let them organize. Hate speech should not be protected speech. Endorsements of violence are terrorism.

its been estimated that 600 million or so has been poured into marketing minions so if we estimate the tuition at 40,000 dollars then about 150 students

that’s depressing

i don’t know what’s more depressing,that 600 million dollars has been spent on advertizing minions or that 600 million dollars will only pay the tuition of 150 US college students

…… oh my god

i just …

really you should re-calc …

um, Maybe you all should be paying a little more for your college- or maybe reconsider sleeping through your basic math classes in primary school

Circa 2011 Getting a little nostalgic…. We were cute aye, arfabear?

We were cute! Even if I was so incredibly pale I appear here in grey scale! I get to thank the NZ summer for that.

BUT, we are Goddam gorgeous now! Four years of constant high intensity beautifying!!

Makes me want to go back to hibernation! I had a lot of fun with a great group of people on that trip in 2011.

Not bad for someone relegated to the infinite boredom that is the big and tall section of clothing stores.

It’s so weird seeing someone I know in real life on tumblr. But you’re looking good arfabear!

Following the success of my cheesecake over the @arfabear

Following the success of my #cheesecake over the weekend I continued the momentum by baking a (rather over-risen) fig, honey and Rosemary upside-down cake.

Monstersinmirrors we need to realise that @arfabear

monstersinmirrors:

“We need to realise that every one of us is different”, she advises. “We are all imperfectly perfect. I wanted to show society that beauty isn’t just about looking a certain way, we are all so different and we should all celebrate our individuality. I used to keep my beard for religious reasons, but now I keep my hair to show the world a different, confident, diverse and strong image of a woman. I love my beard, it has become a part of my body and I do not want to remove it. Love yourself, YOU are the only YOU that YOU have.” 

 This lady is badass! Check out the rest of the article to see what she says:

I am starting to question my own existence because of New Zealand’s lack of existence on map and diagrams.

Mage of rage micdotcom millennials agree with @arfabear

mage-of-rage:

micdotcom:

Millennials agree with Bernie Sanders on almost every issue 

Despite very low levels of trust in the federal government and elected officials (you try growing up under President George W. Bush and graduating into the Great Recession), millennials are more politically engaged in their everyday lives than any previous generation. And on nearly every one of the issues that millennials consider to be the most important, Sanders comes out as the unlikely champion.

Boost every sanders post. He needs us.

So the “Bernie Sanders Exposed” group on Facebook put this up as I guess reasons not to vote for him but all I’ve been seeing all day is people going FUCK YEAH I’LL VOTE FOR THAT.

Senator Bernie Sanders is running for President on a very simple message: enough is enough. Find out more about his stance on the issues here, donate to his campaign here, and look for him in the six recently-announced Democratic primary debates this fall.

Npr a recent study tried to explain the divide @arfabear

npr:

A recent study tried to explain the divide in Eastern and Western culinary philosophy though some nifty data crunching. Researchers from the Indian Institute for Technology in Jodhpur looked up the ingredient lists for more than 2,000 Indian recipes. They then analyzed the chemical components of these ingredients, looking at the compounds that, when combined, give foods their taste.

They concluded that what makes Indian cuisine so exquisite is its tendency to bring together lots of different ingredients with flavor molecules that don’t overlap.

That’s quite different from how Western cuisine works — previous research has shown that it relies on pairing ingredients that, at the molecular level, share lots of similar flavor compounds.

Why the difference? The answer, it turns out, has just as much to do with economics, politics and religion as it does taste.

despite his general sillyness Russel Brand really does have moments of genuine insight and thoughtfulness.

I think I actually align pretty well with his thoughts and philosophies- Maybe I should get his book, Revolution, and give it a read.
