How to: Coloring eyes
This is just a simple tutorial on how to change the color of eyes. The method also works on hair, and other things.
STEP 1: Open up your picture. I’m using this macro shot of an eye just to make things easier to see. You can use any picture. Anyway, after that, feel free to add any filters/actions etc. before doing anything else.
STEP 2: Select the path tool, and make a path around the iris. Don’t forget to connect your points to close the path.
STEP 3: After making your path, right click on the canvas, and select “make selection.” Set the feather radius to about 5 (note: this amount will change according to your path).
STEP 4: Go to layer>new adjustment layer>hue/saturation, and then play around with the settings. Checking “colorize” is optional. I just did it because I was going for a specific color.
STEP 5: This last step is optional. If you want to clean up the edges, select the layer mask of your coloring layer. Then get a black fuzzy brush and “erase” the parts you don’t want. I’ll go more into layer masks in another tutorial.
Anyway, I hope this tutorial was helpful to you. c:

how did you manage to sum it up so easily
When I first started University I was so excited to start being more independent! Had absolutely everything planned out! Until I got there and had to do my first food shop.
But, what should I buy?!
If you’re the same, or if you just want some advice on what your fridge should be stocked with to ensure you stay away from the notorious ready meal then read ahead! I’ve tried to keep it as clean/healthy as possible but it’s totally adaptable to whatever you want/need :)
Fruit and veggies:
- Berries (frozen berries are cheaper than fresh!)
- Lemons (great as condiments or sliced up in hot water, too)
- Grapes (Try freezing them as a summer snack, too!)
- Onions (I always have onions in my cupboard!)
Basically any fruit or veg you like that’s in season! Click here for a great info sheet about when food is in what season!
- Cottage Cheese
- Nuts and nut butters
- Almond Milk
Grains and ‘good carbs’
- Brown rice
- Brown rice

Any bread you want, make sure it’s brown/wholemeal at least. Ezekiel bread is also great

Dairy and non-dairy alternatives

Other general tips about shopping
- Keep an extra loaf of bread in the freezer just in case
- Keep a spare pint of milk in the freezer just in case
- Start a weekly food planner to make sure you’re eating healthily and saving money on your food shop
- If you’re having leftovers, it’s best not to re-heat pork, bacon or shellfish
- If you’re not vegan/veggie, buy a whole chicken and cook it. You can use the meat for several meals such as sandwiches, curries, risottos, baked potatoes, salads etc.

Cats who can’t figure out walls [x]
PLEASE TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET IF YOU SEE THEM DOING THIS BEHAVIOR OVER TIME.
It’s called “head pressing” and it occurs in dogs and cats.
Head pressing is characterized by the compulsive act of pressing the head against a wall or other object for no apparent reason. This generally indicates damage to the nervous system, which may result from a number of varying causes, including prosencephalon disease (in which the forebrain and thalamusparts of the brain are damaged), or toxic poisoning.
http://www.vet.cornell.edu/FHC/health_resources/toxoplasmosis.cfm (head pressing is listed as a symptom)

YOU JUST SAVED THE LIFE OF MY CAT THANK YOU!
SPREAD THIS LIKE WILDFIRE. THIS COULD SAVE YOUR KITTIE’S LIFE!
My character’s an auto mechanic who works mostly with motorcycles, and I know absolutely nothing about cars or motorcycles. I don’t even think I know how to do a proper oil change. This means I have to go on extensive research quests just to pull this character off.
My partner’s character started rolling a “cylindrical motorcycle part” around with his foot, and I told my partner I had to Google parts that could qualify before writing my reply because my character should know what that part is called. It’s perfectly acceptable for hers to call it a “thingy,” but not as acceptable for mine to do the same.
She just doesn’t know how I have the patience to look up every little thing, but I have to. XD
