Idris Elba in “Lover of the Light” by Mumford & Sons (x)
"I bet if Doc Brown was played by Idris Elba you would just loooooove Back to the Future." Chad said this to me yesterday after I admitted to really not loving Back to the Future. Anyway, here is a gifset proving that, yeah, I would just looooooove anything probably as long as Idris was in it.
Geminid Meteor Shower
The annual Geminid meteor shower peaks next week. Sadly, the Moon will be near-full brightening the sky for most of the night causing rates to be lower. However, the Geminids will still put on a good show pretty much anywhere that isn’t overcast, so don’t worry. Southern Hemisphere viewers will see lower rates, with the peak being ~40-60 meteors/hour in some locations, so you won’t be missing out as was the case for the Persieds earlier this year. Use the Fluxtimator to estimate the rate in your location.
Meteors will be visible when the radiant point is above the horizon from your location. The radiant point is in the constellation Gemini (Jupiter will be too, so get your binocs/telescopes), right next to the Orion constellation. You can spot meteors anywhere in the sky and it is not necessary to look towards the radiant point as some may believe. So go out, find somewhere dark, look up and enjoy the show.
Okay, so. The curl is natural. If I want to wear it curly, I usually leave a bit of conditioner in it after I shower. I had a sample of Miss Jessie’s Leave In Condish from November’s Birchbox, so I tries that this time. It enhanced the curl, but I also just cut it, so the shorter length may have added to that. So after the conditioner I put coconut oil on the ends. Then I use Aveda’s curl cream. I don’t know what the exact name is, but it’s a cream instead of a gel, so it doesn’t make my hair crunchy. And then I let it air dry and go over anything that needs touching up with my flat iron.
…that was a very long post about hair. Sorry, dudes.
For the past eight months or so, every time we’ve gone into a Target, Poppy has zeroed in in this Caboodle. She would call it her “purse” and fill it up while we shopped. She is always so good about putting it back when I tell her we’re not buying it. Today, I caved. She walked home carrying it, and it hasn’t left her sight all night. She MIGHT love it more than that Magic School Bus book (which she also won’t sleep without).
