Do any nonnies have a Singer Heavy Duty? Some sewing youtubers I watch recommend it and it's within my budget, but my local craft shops don't have it so I can't give one a try before committing. I make simple things (soft toys, bags, want to start making clothes) so I wonder if something called "Heavy Duty" would be overkill? My main requirements are for the machine to have several speed settings and not get stuck when I'm adding lining to things. I've only ever used a garbage "toy" machine so far so I have no idea what's normal or needed for a real machine.

No. 362150

My own machine isn't heavy duty, but from my understanding heavy duty machines have stronger motors and can sew through more layers than usual, which I assume will lead to the machine getting stuck less often. My non-heavy duty singer machine normally runs great, but betrays me when I try to sew 4-5 layers of minky fabric when making plushies. It might be worth getting the singer heavy duty if you wanna make thick bags that use lots of layers or clothing that uses tons of thick fabric like denim. If it fits your budget I'd say go for it as long as you are buying from a reputable shop with warranty and refund options.
From the pic you've posted I don't think this machine has multiple speed settings. It's something I really wanted before I actually bought my machine and was sad mine didn't have it, but after actually using my machine I don't feel the need anymore since it only sets the max achievable speed, the foot pedal is actually what one uses to control the speed by applying different amounts of pressure. The speed of the sewing also changes based on your stitch length and fabric type, my motor sounds ready to croak when I sew small stitches on multiple layers of minky lol.

I highly recommend getting an old school sewing machines second hand.

No. 362157

I've read that it doesn't live up to it's heavy duty name lol.

No. 362240

I have this machine! It's great for sewing through multiple layers of thick fleece, and I've also tested it on denim. It's never gotten stuck. It doesn't have speed settings though, so it might be challenging to use for a project where you need really precise stitching.

at a lot of hairdressers you don't even know what the price will without going in and asking because they upcharge based on length. I understand how that might increase the labor for a complex dye job or something but I have extremely long hair and they used that as an excuse to charge like $70 for trimming the ends last time I went and she didn't even do what we agreed on. I haven't gone back in years, it took me less than 5 minutes to trim my own hair yesterday.

this is just a bad excuse. extensions cost as much as a car downpayment does now, hair dye is less than 20 for what most salons use. The only thing i can think of is lot/ chair rent which a lot of places are actually going DOWN in price (I'm a masseuse and rent at salons)

Maybe it's just me, but I feel as though birth control is something that women don't talk enough about despite it being so complex and many people using it regularly. Let's post our comments/questions about birth control!

- contraception
- acne control
- PCOS management
- hormonal treatment
- ring vs. pill vs. non-hormonal
- side effects/benefits
- weight gain/loss
- etc.

NTA yeah our current options are shit but you'll notice that conveniently none of these conservative assholes are demanding research for better alternatives and it would be beyond naively hopeful to think we're going to get any anytime soon either. It's laughably noticeable how no one was concerned for women having to deal with birth control side effects until abortion was banned in a lot of the US. If learning about the harmful side effects convinces women to stop having piv sex, great, but for anyone still having it, realize who is saying these things and that they care far more about getting you pregnant than any risks to your health

No. 357001

I don't think anti-birth control anons are against abortion or even against birth control at all, I feel like we all just want birth control companies to be held accountable/improve their medications.

It's also been used by lazy obgyns to just throw women on bc willy nilly instead of trying to improve roots of issues like pcos and endo, even though birth control can make these things worse in long term

tldr - anons don't hate birth control like moids do, they just want companies to improve it and want obgyns to stop handing it out like candy to women with any sort of gynecological issues

No. 357067

Ive been preaching about the neagtive side effects for years after getting interstitial cystitis and major suicidal thoughts and personality change on birth control. My cousin got a blood clot near her heart and nearly died. Silencing womens negative experiences is what the pharmaceutical companies want. The lack of information about side effects of birth control is medical negligence which affect women like crazy bc no pharmaceutical companies care about side effects of medication affecting women.

Being told the only side effect from bc is big boobs as a 16 year old is fucked up, women should be informed when making major medical decisions.

Saying depo provera causes osteoporosis and shouldnt be avoided, especially as a long term bc isnt manosphere wrongthink you moron, its facts.

What are your favorite perfumes/body mists?

My go-to is Coco Mademoiselle. I've also harbored a longtime attachment to Love's Baby Soft as it was my first fragrance I was bought as a child. My mom got me Wind Song when I was little and I couldn't stand the smell. I've wanted to experiment with making my own perfume. The scent that I hate the most is freesia and I can't believe how much its used in fragrances.

Has anyone tried the Sailor Moon perfumes? Much of their anniversary merch seems to be all hype.

What scent goes well with a basic lavender body spray? Would coconut work or would they clash? This is for summertime so no vanilla please. I know I like lavender but want to layer it with something to make it more summery. Pomegranate, maybe?

I'm thinking of buying the Mix:Bar coconut palm perfume but I'm scared that it will smell weird with lavender.

Does anyone here have some ideas on what should I layer with YSL Libre Intense? I'm searching specifically for a perfumed body lotion and maybe a mist, so I can make the perfume last even longer. I saw someone suggesting Fairytale by Bath and Body Works on TikTok,my only problem is that I can't find it in my country. Is Lavender & Vanilla by Victoria's Secret a good option? Or anything else from VS?

Had the silliest dream where I went to my ultrachad GP for some vague issues with my vagina and he’s like “well we can fix this” with a sheepish look on his face and next thing I know we are in his bed making hot passionate segs. He is married with two kids and I don’t even feel an ounce of guilt because this is totally for medical reasons. Then I go home to my clueless chad nigel and have hot sex with him afterwards and I’m like this is it, the best of both worlds. I’ve never cheated in my life and don’t think I ever will but man.

I cannot for the life of me find out what this textured spot on my chin is supposed to be. My skin is mostly ok but this thing just randomly showed up like 4 years ago and has been there since. I really don’t need that extra texture it adds to my chin which I already dislike because it has an ass on it. Does anyone know what this is at all and if there’s anything i can do to make it go away?

Nonas it took me 4 months to figure it out but I FINALLY realised that switching from generic to name brand adhd meds has been what caused me to develop annoying and painful hormonal pattern acne.

No. 362046

I get these bumps on my face, but I don't think they're pimples because they aren't red or super visible unless I look closely and they don't hurt when I touch them them. If I squeeze them, white stuff (I'm assuming sebum) comes out. It bothers me because whenever I wash my face, I can feel the bumps. Is this some form of acne or something else? How can I stop them from forming? They usually come up in clusters on my cheek or around my chin.

No. 362100


Do you oil cleanse, nona? It sounds to me like you have prominent sebaceous filaments. I get them in clusters on my chin. Oil cleansing has helped me, if I do it regularly the oil plugs come out and my skin is less textured.

No. 362123

Yes, I think that’s what it is! I just added oil cleansing to my routine recently so hopefully they’ll go away. What oil cleanser do you use?

>I don't even want to say hello if I see him in person though
Well don't go out of your way to greet him first or anything. I just mean if you happen to run into eachother and it's unavoidable you can wave or nod and smile in recognition but don't interrupt what you're doing for more than a couple seconds. The silent treatment isn't "classy" which is what you asked for. Maybe this isn't even a concern for you since you said he got a new group and is distancing himself.
You can just stop talking to him, it's not rude or un-classy, he can talk to other people.

No. 362152

it's very likely he won't understand why I stopped talking to him because in his eyes he did nothing wrong
I would be disgusted if I would run into him and the ugly gremlin the new group is trying to hook him up with though
but as you said, a simple hello might be best than saying nothing

No. 362165

Who cares? You sound like you care a lot and I don’t understand why. Why do you want to appear uninterested but classy but also consider his feelings? Not to be rude but you seem fixated on him.
