I've fallen in love with a dog named Zoey at today's @maytesrescue adoption event!! So many great dogs that need homes! (Especially sweet puppies!) Come visit us and go home with a new friend or just find out more info on how you can volunteer with us next time!! ❤️Puppies will be here until 3:30!
As women, we are told we need to walk a fine line. We should be sexy, but not too sexy to be taken seriously. Successful, but not so successful that we don't have time to put others first. We should accept that as women, there is something inherently wrong with us that will always require our constant attention. Can I just say EFF THAT NOISE?? I am sexy and funny and strong and brilliant and I don't have to be a zero to allow myself to feel sexy or devote enough of my life to others to 'deserve' to spend time doing the things that bring me joy. These subtle concepts have permeated our culture so strongly, that I believe even women (!!!) are guilty of perpetuating these ideals. By reflecting these judgements onto others, we commit ourselves (and our daughters) to a set of rules and regulations designed to keep us from living our fullest, happiest lives! I'm so happy to have partnered with @swimsuitsforall who freaking GETS IT. Gone are the days where wearing sexy swimsuits was a honor reserved exclusively for size zeroes. (Who are also REAL WOMEN, they just are also currently adequately represented in the media) For so long, we'd work towards a goal, a number, a 'magical size' where (if ever achieved) we would finally believe that we deserved the things we never allowed ourselves before. Hey, I'm not perfect...I've been guilty of this too, but not anymore. WAKE UP LADIES! WE GET ONE LIFE, ENJOY THE HELL OUT OF IT! Women like @theashleygraham are changing the game and raising the bar for what women think they deserve... Out of life or out of a swimsuit. ❤️ You deserve the best!!!!! #nomakeup #bodypositive #HonorMyCurves #effyourbeautystandards #ashleygraham #swimsuitsforall #endbodyshaming #nowrongway #standupforcurves #mymagicalsize #ashleygrahamxswimsuitsforall
Here's a Daily Dose of Inspiration! Until 1972, women weren't allowed to participate in the Boston Marathon. Kathrine Switzer, broke barriers in 1967 by entering under her initials and surviving efforts by race directors to physically pull her out of the competition. "What was a dramatic incident 50 years ago when angry race co-director Jock Semple tried to throw me off the course for being a girl, became instead a defining moment for me and women runners throughout the world," Katherine went on to win the 1974 New York City Marathon and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of her historic run on Monday by completing the Boston Marathon with a finishing time of 4 hrs 44 min. (Well under the qualifying time and quite a feat for a woman in her 70s! Wow!) #thereisnowrongwaytobeawoman #nowrongway #feminist #feminism #equality #humanrights #girls #inspiration #intersectionalfeminist #selflove #positivity #goodvibes #profeminism #261
OK, so I'm about to level with y'all... I just got a @trophyskin #microdermMD at home microderm machine and it's become one of my absolute favorite things. I decided to make a gallery so you can see #1 how easy it works (the machine guides you thru exactly what you need to do, just in case you hate reading the instructions first, like I do) & #2 How much dead skin I took off... The filter pad is black when it's clean, and as you can see by the time I was done, there was a mountain of bright, pasty white skin on it, ew! I had no idea I was walking around with that much dead skin on my face! Thank you #trophyskin for helping me get my best skin at home! http://bit.ly/2pPBSS2 #DiscoverYourBestSkin #skincaretools #hightech #beautytools #sponsored PS I'm gonna put the link in my bio xo check it out!
Can't get over how much I love this man. I txtd him while he was working to tell him I was in a lot of pain (again) and would be heading to urgent care. By the time I showed up, he'd already checked me in and was ready to wait with me until I could get seen by the doctor. I was in for a while, but he was still there, just working away in the lobby, waiting for me to get out. ❤️I'm so lucky to have a hubby that cares about me so much, especially since my back problems have made me such a pain in the butt lately! :) He's a keeper! #luckygirl
