Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.” — Margery Williams, Velveteen Rabbit
As always, these are from Pinterest.
These are the bathroom design ideas I’m liking this week.
I am always down for unusual decor that serves a practical purpose! These are just fun!! I’m not hating the wallpaper either. Though, that’s got most to do with the bird peeping over the edge. This is probably my 2nd favorite hook idea ngl, I like the idea of using old door knobs a tiny bit more.
The tile walls are totally hitting the right notes. I am of the belief that the bathroom often gets ignored when it comes to a bit of cheeky cool design. I love me some color! I’m not feeling the gold mirror though, but that’s just me. I am loving the glass shower partition..anyone else tired of shower curtain mildew cleaning? Plus, there is that whole Psycho fear when I shower. This would eliminate that! But, then again..it also means your naked ass is on display..but, if I got me a sexy naked man in my shower, this could be a totally “noice” feature..know what I mean?
This one is actually a bit nicer than the one above. It’s got a more clean lined look. I’m loving the black & white tile floor too! And don’t think I missed the plank shelves! Yes, please! I’d pass on the little shower table..my big butt would knock that over 77 times.
Can I just….that floor is giving me the vibe! I wouldn’t normally like green this way but, the Chevron arrangement is really good. Also definitely in love with the sink! Clean lines get me every time! Pass on the chair though..not substantial enough to make sense except as a towel catcher and that’s kinda it…not practical.
Seriously, what’s with me an Chevron patterns lately?! I love the blue! Once again, I’m not a fan of gold. Nopes. Give me black fixtures or wrought iron every time!
Ok, this is my personal favorite combination of texture and styles. I love mixing the black with the wood. See, it can be done! Looks beautiful! Not a fan of the toilet where it is though. It looks cramped that way and the bathroom looks big enough not to have that arranged like that! I do totally like the sink behind the shower like this!
“The only time you look in your neighbor’s bowl is to make sure that they have enough. You don’t look in your neighbor’s bowl to see if you have as much as them.”― Louis C.K.
I might be blind from staring into the fucking flash for way, waaaaay too long but, I did it!
The challenge is this filter that is supposed to bring out the natural colors in your eye.
I think mine are kinda pretty. I mean, my eyes are boring brown soo… I’m kinda chuffed to discover they can also be pretty too!
Watching Sims4 gamer playthroughs, I’m freaking exhausted. Apparently people are panic-buying Christmas presents way early due to the whole shipping fear! That equals an extremely busy work day. Phew* I’m honestly really tired. On the upside, I just installed a hook near my bed that I can hook my cell on to watch YouTube vids hands-free! Oh yeah!!! Oh yeah!! I’m awesome!
I couldn’t believe it when people commented on another members TikTok that they didn’t know how to find the sales price when an item is on sale. Then, a woman in the comments section explained basic math in the MOST complicated way possible confusing the shit out of people!
Dude! It’s not that hard. Let me help you out ok! I sound annoyed in the video, because the woman’s comment was literally making people even more afraid of basic math. Once you explain it, it’s freaking easy! There are perks to working in retail 33 years!
$20 at 10% off = 2.00 off
Always move only 1 space to the left when it’s a percentage of something.
For example take a $200. item, you move it one space over… making 10% off it..$20 off. This means a $2000. item would be $200 off at 10% and onward.
Now you might be asking, what about 15% off?
If a $20 shirt were 15% off you take that 10% which is $2.00 and you take off half of that 10% (half of $2.00 is $1) add that into the 10% total of $2.00 and you get…$3.00 off.
$2 (10%) + $1 (5%)= 15%
What if it’s 40% off you ask? Using multiples of 10 is easy. Simply start at the original 10% and add up..10%+10%+10%+10%= 40% Therefore, $2.00 off (a $20 shirt) looks like this $2.00+$2.00+$2.00+$2.00 (4 times equals 40%) which comes out at: $8 off the price of $20. $20- $8= $12 as the new price!
Ah! But, Bekki, you say..what if it’s 45% off?
Take off 40% as usual… Then use the 10% in half I taught you. $20 shirt breaks down like this: $2.$2.$2.$2 (10%,10%,10%,10%) (40%) plus 1/2 of 10% which is half of $2 which we already learned is $1. Soo, it becomes $2,$2,$2,$2+$1= $9 off the price! You $20- $9 is now $11.
Ah ah ah! You say, what about if the item is an odd number say $25…what then?
move that decimal and $25.00 becomes $2.50 add it just the same as you did before. $2.50,$2.50,$2.50, $2.50 (40% off!)
that makes it: $10 off making your new price $25-$10= $15.
Ok, ok, you say but what if both numbers are odd! Like 45% off a $25 shirt!
I got you baby!
do your 10% first! $25.00 moving the decimal left makes it $2.50
now do your 40% $2.50,$2.50,$2.50,$2.50=$10 now add in the 5%! A half of $2.50 is= $1.25!
So now it looks like this:
$2.50,$2.50,$2.50,$2.50 (40%) and 1.25 (5%) add it up and you have 11.25 off the $25 price! $25-$11.25= $13.75. or to see it broken down even more $25- $10 (40%) =$15-$1 = 14 and then -.25¢= 13.75. (5%)
The older you get, the more people you have to say goodbye to….sigh*
