Forever trying not to try - the oxymoron of life.

never seen awful statues?? I think u are forgetting all of Michelangelo’s attempts at sculpting women, the big queer

Damn, how could I forget?

Dented oranges are my favorite type of breast

Michel-I’ve never seen a naked woman-angelo 

he literally just sculpted a man’s pectorals and put lumpy lemons on them

The reason sculptures of women were so anatomically incorrect back then is because it wasn’t a done thing for women to pose nude for artists, so sculptors, such as Michelangelo, would use male models for the sculptures and then pretty much add on the typically feminine attributes from their memory/imagination/whatever experience they had with the naked female form.

saartjie asked: Once you get this, you must share 5 random facts about yourself, and then send it to your 10 favourite followers :)

1. I pretty much constantly crave milk (flavoured or normal, doesn’t matter)

2. I really want to go sky diving.

3. I cannot sleep properly if I stay up past 3am.

4. I tried to shoplift eye shadow once, but couldn’t get myself to actually go through with it. (I’ve never stolen anything)

5. My dream pets are a wolf hybrid, a royal python and a peregrine falcon.

Amazing Illustrations by Artist Chiara Bautista

on facebook

Chiara Butista aka MILK is an enigmatic artist from Tucson, Arizona. Her work is insanely detailed and appears to be riddled with symbolism. Many of her subjects, which sport antlers or tentacles, are captured in chaotic, angst-ridden moments which are balanced perfectly by femininely decorated backgrounds and cartoonish animal friends. You could scour these images for hours and still find new details every time you revisit them. His work is rich with symbolism inspired cephalopods, falling planes, deer, piercing arrows, wounds,  teddy bears and drugs which may be as much a symbol for obsessive love.

Happy 21st to a fantastic human.

Happy birthday http://saartjie.tumblr.com/ 

I know going back to uni on your 21st, and having a whole load of stupid admin to deal with was not how you would have planned your day, but I hope that, despite all the adult shit you have to do today, you are still able to enjoy YOUR day the way you deserve.

Thank you for letting me spend your whole birthday weekend with you and your family, it was such a lovely time.

Welcome to the seniors’ club :p

"Zombie Graveyard" Red Velvet 21st Birthday cake order I did this morning.
I made everything from scratch, except for the white skulls around the middle. Everything is edible.
I’m quite stoked with how it turned out, and can’t wait to taste it - for once I get to eat a piece of a cake order I’ve made, because I’m going to the party that this cake is for.

"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun."

Got my first two-tiered cake order, and its halloween themed :D I’m super excited for this one, but also very worried that I’ll stuff it up -_-
Time to go do some shopping. Yay for baking shopping, its the best.

Home now, ranted to my parents, scoffed down some pizza, drank some wine and cuddled my dog.
Feeling a lot better now and maybe ice skating after work tomorrow with the wonderful benign-benefits :)

Definitely ice skating. Super grilled ice skating ^_^ Although I don’t know how coordinated either of us will be, haha.

I need to go to the pharmacy, and take my car to have its window replaced, but I can’t stop crying for long enough to go out in public.
