If you know me then you know I am addicted to knits. Even when it comes to my swimwear! I don’t know what it is but I can’t get enough of these soft, beautiful, natural creations! This swimsuit is particularly adorable with the crochet ruffle detail at the waist band. When buying a knit or crochet swimsuit a big concern is stretch. Is it going to give a little to fit my hips? Is it going to give too much after getting wet and stretch out?
The feminine spirit is a unique and essential part of life. It is the basis of love and connection among us all. Somehow, women’s worth is being downplayed. This video shows how far the world has come in accepting women as equal and important parts of society, and how far it still needs to go. Never stop fighting, and always use your voice!
This amazing toy company, GoldieBlox, has a great message to share with the world: girls need more options to play with than just princesses and barbie dolls. GoldieBlox is adamant in the belief that the feminine spirit of young girls will help build the future, literally! We do too!
I have always been that rhythmically challenged white girl, who loves dancing, but cannot do it to save her life. I love watching dances online, and am constantly amazed at the talent some people possess. I can appreciate this video for the talent, but I am equally upset with the content.
Why are we teaching young girls to move like Beyonce, who is known for her body and how she displays her sexuality? There are plenty of dances to showcase these young girls’ obvious talent, and then there are songs and dances like these that accelerate little girls’ growing process. I can’t help but wonder how we would react to 5-7 year old boys with no shirts on dancing around “grinding on the floor” to 50 Cent’s Candy Shop? It would be concerning to say the least, so why are we ok with seeing 5-7 year old girls in booty shorts and fishnets “booty popping” like Beyonce?
At first we were taken aback by the title of this blog post, and what we saw when we quickly scanned over it. Once we took a closer look, we could clearly see the writer, Katie Harrill, was onto something. Her witty post on how to make men like you, reminded us the absurdity of the pressures women feel to attract men. Just be yourself and have a laugh at these perfect examples why you should never settle for less.

It is no surprise when we see models with perfect skin that we can credit with amazing lighting, and great photography skills. However, when we see those same tactics used on darker skin, we start to wonder the deeper affects it may have on young children growing up seeing people with their same dark skin; being portrayed lighter than they actually are.
