this retailer sells a halal nail polish. this allows for oxygen and water to go through the nail, which makes it acceptable to wear during prayer. spread the word.
“Being a relatively modern creation, nail polish remains obviously unaddressed by early Islamic sources. But the general consensus in the Islamic community is that praying with nail polish is impermissible because of the waterproof barrier it creates on nails, which prevents the wudu ritual from being completed five times a day.” (source)
For any Muslim followers.
DON’T ACTUALLY USE THIS FOR THE SAKE OF WATER PERMEABILITY. IT’S NOT VERY EFFECTIVE.
It’s only water vapor permeable, and it’s not at all water permeable when you apply multiple coats, a top coat, or a base coat.
You should use the Tuesday In Love water-permeable brands instead! They’re completely water permeable and come in a whole ton of colors!
Here’s a test that a sister did comparing the Inglot brand and the Tuesday In Love brand on a paper towel so you can see for yourself.
please please please spread this around, I would hate for a lot of sisters to have their prayers invalidated because of something like this.
DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.
SHES VOICED BY RIHANNA
"KitRex began as a homework assignment where I was asked to research a manufacturing process and demonstrate it in a unique way. I decided to research Industrial Origami, and over the course of 50 hours I designed, cut, and built a wearable 15-ft long velociraptor out of cardboard. I took him to a costume ball, and when I tromped into the room, literally everyone stopped to stare. He was the star of the evening, and everyone wanted one. I knew I had to do something."
Lisa then started (and successfully funded) a KitRex Kickstarter project to help her mass-produce an adorable 3-foot-long KitRex (since most people don’t have the space for a 15-ft paper dino). After months of prototyping and testing with kids between 8 - 12 years old, the final KitRex was born as a bristol board model that’s easily flat-packed and shipped anywhere (But you have to add your own googly eyes). A few lucky Kickstarter contributors were rewarded with giant 15-foot KitRexes of their very own.
Lisa isn’t quite ready to ship the KitRex, but for the time being you can click here to download a free pattern that fits on a standard 8x10 sheet of paper. It’ll be like playing with a dino hatchling.
my cool ritual knives were all accepted to the yearly student show!
probably reworking that top one once i get it back, not actually feeling it yet.
THAT IS EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT I WAS EXPECTING
One of my dear friends has been struggling with a string of low spoons days lately, which inspired me to create this spoons meter so they could quickly and wordlessly convey how they were feeling that day. It works on a scale of 0 to 5, where five spoons means: “Hey, I’m feeling good! Let’s go out and see people and kick ass and crush the patriarchy!” and zero spoons means: “Spoon levels critically low - DO NOT ENGAGE”
I figured this might be useful for other spoonies struggling with chronic illness or disability, so I’m making it freely available! The meter itself is small enough to fit nicely in a blog description or anywhere else you may wish to conspicuously display your current spoons level.
You can download the full set here. It’s totally free to use (although, of course, credit and a note to let me know would be lovely!) Even if you don’t need this, please consider reblogging in case one of your followers might find it useful.
May all your spoons be polished and your silverware drawer be full! =3
have you guys seen this yet?
GUYS SOMEONE POSTED A WAY INTO YOUR HEART
I guess they found a way to my heart. Oh yeah.
Och aye the noo, who here likes heilan coos? I do!
These wee highland cow balls have been made in my garden studio on the coast of Scotland as a nod to our much loved unofficial country mascot. I feel an affinity to highland cows because most of them have the same hair colour as me. The iconic highland cow has been the unwilling face of Scotland for a long time so it seemed only fitting to make those wonderful hairy beasts into cute furry balls!
Heilan coos would make a fantastic gift for the Scotland-lover, aspiring farmer or cow fanatic in your circle of family and friends. Real cows need masses of space and make a huge mess, heilan coos fit in the palm of your hand and are quite happy sitting on a desk.
They have hard resin noses and horns that have been painted with acrylics and then varnished. Their bodies are fake fur and stuffed with yellow split peas for a nice squashy weight!
As each has been hand made they are all unique. Each nose cast had different amounts of dye added, so no two noses are the same shade of pink. Some have spots on their noses, some have wonky horns, some are a bit squashier than others… Much like real cows!
They measure 6-8cm in diameter.
