The best advice I've ever heard was to stop waiting on someone else to bring you flowers when you are capable of growing your own garden. You could apply this logic to anything. Stop waiting on someone else to take you on a date when you could take yourself. Stop waiting on someone else to bring you soup when you're sick and order/make your own. Stop waiting on someone else to tell you good morning when you can wake up, wiggle your body, make yourself a cup of tea and walk around in the sunshine while singing a good morning song. If a new movie comes out that you want to see but everyone you know is busy, go take your self and buy a large popcorn and douse it with butter. Enjoy yourself. By yourself. For yourself. Plant your own garden and enjoy it yourself. 🌷🌷 #loveyourselffirst❤️ #loveyourselfmost #selfloveclub #selfloveblog #selfcarepage #feministblogger #feministart #hujicam📸 #naturephotography #garden #goplantagarden #plantagarden #rhodeisland #summerinrhodeisland #plantparent #flowergardens #dumphim #singlegirls #singlelifestyle #alonequotes

🇷🇺 👇🏻 Our last (and conclusive for this summer) stop is Mykonos. Everyone who has heard about it made a suggestive move around the temple because Mykonos is no place for children (☝🏻). What can I say. When Fox was born, we wanted to continue travelling to the places we love (and 🇬🇷 is love). And take her with us, when we are leaving for more than a weekend, she is family. Fox is a fantastic travel companion btw but here she got a little sick. As a responsible parent, I brought her to a doctor before we left, and he told me not to worry (and also mocked my mother hen instincts). However she is not getting better, so for now Mykonos is (mostly) hanging out with her in our perfect room with a pool where occasionally I let her touch water. We did check in at Blue Marlin however, Fox loved it, danced with everyone and as a sign of super luck found a cat that let her touch it. 🐱😌
⠀
Наша последняя (и заключительная на это лето) остановка - это Миконос. Почти все, кто слышал об этом слышал, энергично крутил пальцем у виска, ведь Миконос не место для детей (айайай). Ну что сказать. С появлением Лиса мы хотели и дальше продолжать ездить в любимые места (а 🇬🇷 это любовь). И брать Алиску с собой, когда уезжаем больше, чем на выходные, она же семья. Лис фантастический попутчик, к слову, но тут вот приболела. Я, как ответственная, сходила накануне отлёта к врачу (чтоб у него все трубочки повылетали), он мне сказал не волноваться вообще и ещё и поглумился над моими страхами. Но Лисёнок все ещё болеет, так что я сижу (преимущественно) в своём номере с бассейном, куда ее пускаю иногда только помочить ножки, и развлекаю ее как могу. Но в Blue Marlin Ibiza мы все-таки зачекинились, Алиске понравилось, она танцевала со всеми и в виде особой удачи нашла кису, которая дала себя потрогать. 🐱 😌

We were trained to view parts of our bodies as flaws, as insecurities. 
We look at our body hair; on our arms, legs, stomachs, chests, breasts, faces and everywhere else they grow and feel the urge to remove them, because we feel disgusting if we do not get rid of them. 
We look at our stretch marks; on our hips, our thighs, our knees and our arms and our first instinct is to hide them because we think they are ugly and imperfections. 
We look at our whole body that way. 
All we see are things that should not be there, things that, according to society and the beauty industry, are faults in our looks. 
We spend so much time bullying ourselves for not looking the way we are supposed to and we spend so much money on products that could help make these ‘flaws’ disappear. 
When you read through this, doesn’t it make you sad and angry? Doesn’t it sound pathetic and absolutely wrong? 
We are practically raised to hate ourselves. I want this to end, right here, right now. 
Look at yourself, dear, look at all the things on your body that make you feel ugly - be it stretch marks, a belly that sticks out, body hair, scars, your weight - look at them and view them as a part of you, not as the enemy. 
You are perfect just the way you are. You do not need to change a thing about your appearance. 
Start by accepting yourself - every little feature of yours - and then slowly fall in love with the wonderful being you are. There is nothing to be ashamed of, nothing to hide. 
Somehow the industries managed to manipulate us into thinking that we are not good enough, that the outside is all that matters, that your self worth depends on your looks. This is absolute bullshit. You matter as a whole - inside and out. You are so much more than what you look like, so much more than what society tells you to be. 
There is such a bright light shining within you, do not let anyone destroy it, for we need it on this Earth. ❤

Hey @ww - Hands off our children! ⁣
⁣
Here’s my youngest doing the most important work of childhood: playing. Nobody should be counting calories; but especially children. 🌻⁣
⁣
It’s been a messy and busy week here at FF and so I’ve accidentally taken a week off posting. Some really wonderful people, (I’ve tagged them here) have said it all already; this Kurbo app for kids is bullshit. 💩 ⁣
⁣
It’s not “healthy habit forming”- it’s the opposite.  Diets are dangerous. Let’s send a strong message to @WW and tell them we’re not here for it. We will NOT subject our children to fatphobic rhetoric. 🙅🏻‍♀️⁣
⁣
BLOG post coming this afternoon: “Kurbo App: what parents and educators need to know about Weightwatcher’s grab at our kids.” ⁣
⁣
How do YOU approach nutrition and health eating in your feminist households? How do you negate society’s fatphobic messages? Share your ideas below 👇

I feel like when you're in this "almost 30"  phase, there is this weird feeling of trying to figure out what kind of women you are going to be. You want to be like the women of Sex in the City, but you feel like Jenna  in 13 going on 30. I guess figuring out who you never really stops, but the core of yourself is always there. #boldrosemag

Meet@Aishwarya Pissay ,she is the first Indian woman to win motorsports champion (FIM World Cup). .
.
She is the first Indian woman to win 5 National titles in Road Racing and Rally Championship combined. .
.
She found her passion in racing as she turned 18, while taking small road trips around her home town of Bengaluru, consequently learning how to master the art of riding a bike. .
.
This hobby grew into a profession as she won 4 National titles in Road Racing and Rally Championship in 2016 and 2017 and competed in the National Rally Championship in 2018, winning it as well.
.
.
She also became the first Indian woman to compete in the Baja Aragon World Rally in Spain held in 2018.

The protea is the first flower Dan ever gave me. It’s my favorite.

I love that they have an alien-like aesthetic and that they grow in a variety of unique colors and shapes. They’re also apparently prehistoric? Wild.

They were the main flower in my wedding and one is tattooed on my arm for good reason.

I learned a couple of years ago that the King Protea is the national flower of South Africa and that proteas represent transformation and change across cultures, diversity, and courage. I think that without a doubt, this is the coolest flower out there.

Here is a hand-embroidered tee based off of an old sketch I made awhile ago. I may not wanna part with this one. 🙃

🇷🇺 👇🏻 I am guessing that having a baby like Fox means travelling to Arab resorts because other countries are not likely to, well, sympathize with me. Arabs are not overly concerned about teaching kids good manners, they just love them. A lot. Which is not exactly a sweet piece of news for those without kids who travelled to an Arab country with an ambition to rest, - and just great for parents. Especially parents of babies like Fox, who was busy making eyes to all males from 2 yrs old to 100 (not into youngsters), setting on laughter traps in case making eyes was not working, and running around the resort with triumphant Apache cries. In my secret happy place in Tunis, where there is no all inclusive tourism, Fox was adored and worshipped for all that. At any French resort I would have constantly rolled eyes and pfffs. So Arabia for the years to come. Or South Korea, where kids are small gods before they go to school. Which countries are you taking your kids to?
⠀
Я так понимаю, что с лисьим характером мне теперь летать только по арабским резортам, потому что в других странах меня могут, кхм, не понять. Арабы в целом не заморачиваются воспитанием детей, они просто их любят. Очень. Что так себе новость для тех, у кого детей нет и кто долетел-таки до арабской страны в надежде отдохнуть, и просто супер титр для тех, у кого дети есть. Особенно такие, как Лис: которые строят глазки всем представителям мужского пола от 2х до ста лет (молодняк ее не интересует), завлекают смехом, если строить глазки не работает, и бегают по резорту с торжествующим кличем апачей. В моем тайном счастливом месте в Тунисе, где нет all inclusive и массового туризма, Лиса по результатам этого милого поведения все просто обожали. На любом французском резорте меня бы ждали закатанные глаза и пфф. Так что Арабия на ближайшие годы. Ну или Корея, где дети, пока не пойдут в школу, тоже маленькие божества.
А в какие страны вам комфортно ездить с детьми?

this week I've woken up to my favorite music and honestly it has made waking up early a lot more appealing than what it's been before. when I get ready while listening to my morning playlist (which B T W you can find on my blog, link is in my bio ;)) I'm just smiling and dancing and I'm in a good mood when I got to go to school!!🖤

🇷🇺 👇🏻 Mus left today, and there are so many things I want to write, but all of them are so personal, so I am typing and erasing, typing and erasing. New parents are often told, to release the stress and guilt levels, that no matter what you do, your child will always have something to share with a shrink. That there are no ideal parents. Going to therapist is sort of a hype today, many of my friends do go. And I would have nothing to say. About my mom, for sure. Maybe that’s why shrinks and I never clicked. Mus has always been my most loyal ally, my most loved person, and now she has become all that to Fox. (To her also an accomplice, as she often says when allowing her something that I don’t). Mus is universally loved by everyone, even Lufto loves her, and she is his mother-in-law. And I realize that I am extremely lucky, and think about what to do to make my little girl feel this way about me, every day.
⠀
Сегодня улетела мама, и мне так много хочется написать, но все такое личное, что я стираю и пишу, стираю и пишу. Новоиспечённым родителям часто говорят, чтобы снизить уровень вины и стресса, что, мол, как ни старайся, твоему ребёнку все равно что будет рассказать психотерапевту, когда он вырастет. Идеальных родителей не бывает. Сейчас пошла волна таких походов, многие мои друзья ходят. А мне было бы нечего сказать. Про маму так точно. Может, потому и с психотерапевтами у меня не сложилось. Мама всегда была мне лучшим другом, самым верным помощником. Самым любимым человеком. А сейчас стала всем этим и Лисёнку (ещё и соучастником, как она часто говорит, когда разрешает ей что-нибудь, чего не разрешаю я). Ее даже Люфтошка любит изо всех сил, хотя она же теща. И я понимаю, что мне очень-очень повезло, и каждый день думаю, как сделать так, что однажды и моя девочка могла сказать про меня так же.

Meet @Phoenix
.
World’s First Hijab-Wearing Champion Wrestler.
.
.
Dressed in a black and orange hijab and top, Nor participated and won in Malaysia’s biggest wrestling tournament – defeating four men for the title – Malaysia Pro Wrestling (MyPW) – last month.
.
.
At home, Nor Diana is a shy and studious hijab-wearing Malaysian woman, but when in the ring, the wrestler is known as “Phoenix” — a female Muslim fighter breaking multiple barriers in a male-dominated world.
.
.
In the real world I am really shy, I am very reserved, but something happens to me when I go into the ring as Phoenix, I become a totally different person,” she was 14, playing WWE wrestling games with her brother and then watching matches on TV with her father and four brothers. .
.
Breaking the stereotypes this lady is a feminist in every sense.

I’ve been in a Pinterest hole for days with painted and embroidered tees and denim jackets.
What’s the deal with this “hot girl summer” I’m seeing everywhere by the way? I’m ready for fall. Will there be a cool girl fall? If I was cooler I’d know.

Introducing our @grlpwrreads contributor, Jessica Falk! Jessica recently graduated from Brock University with a BA in Women and Gender Studies 🚺 “Feminism is important to me because it is the movement to tear down oppressive, stifling, and violent systems.  I am currently trying to “decolonize my bookshelf”, ensuring I am hearing a wide variety of feminist voices and stories.  It is too easy to only consume white feminist media.  Some of my favourite feminist authors include Audre Lorde, bell hooks, Roxanne Gay, Leanne Betasamosake Simpson and Sherene Razack.#

On the second day of our LGBT+ History Month celebrations, my class learned about Emma Gonzalez and the March For Our Lives. When they learned that they don’t need to wait for adulthood to start their activism and that I would fully applaud a walk out if their rights were not being met by me, the duty bearer, they were full of questions. This led onto the subject of marching, protesting and striking as legitimate forms of activism which set the mood perfectly as this afternoon, I taught them about the hunger strikes by the Suffragettes as non-violent protest in prison. We watched clips from Suffragette and Call the Midwife and read letters detailing the atrocities endured by these women. Alongside our learning about refugees inspired by Francesca Sanna’s beautiful children’s book The Journey, today has been a political, emotional and incredibly affirming day. 📷: @wearemitu #lgbthistorymonth #lgbthistory #emmagonzales #neveragain #marchforourlives #kidswhodaretobedifferent #francescasanna #thejourney #suffragette #votesforwomen #deedsnotwords  #feministblogger #feminist #feminism #feministteacher #teachlikeagirl #feminismintheclassroom

The validation this society has got for all the girls just makes me feel so sick.

Because it's not that just guys have this notion but girls too have believed and accepted that.

Being naive or act dumb otherwise how can we fool her, 
shouldn't be opinionated or loud coz that's assertive, 
feel shy coz sharam aurat ka gehna hai, 
To behave sophisticated coz you shouldn't abuse even if that waxing session hurts and grooming zaruri hai, 
shut up because you can't be dominating, 
dress moderately always coz short clothes say you're are very desperate, 
accept things without questioning them , 
Learn cooking irrespective of her interest in that skill just to please her future husband and his family, 
after marriage is only your real home so don't stay out late all night... Basically don't you dare be expressive in any form mentally or physically as you weren't born as human but rather just a serving puppet.

I’M GIVING UP...
✨
- Self doubt
- Comparing myself to strangers on social media
- Limiting myself
- Fearing the unknown
- Playing small
- Doubting God
🙌🏼
Funny how we’re often the ones holding ourselves back from our own dreams. We think factors like money and circumstance prevent us from being who we want to be when the truth is, they don’t matter in the least.
⚡️
Though it can be hard to see at times, the life you want is waiting for you right before your eyes. All you have to do is give yourself permission to dream it up, and create your own reality.
🌼
What’s one thing you’re giving up today to create your new reality?!

I was lucky enough to partner with @Adornia for a second time and I couldn't be more grateful! If you remember my last post, they're an amazing company run by an even more amazing woman who makes the most beautiful, high quality jewelry I've ever owned with fun and positive messages and 10% of all of their profits are donated quarterly to different charities focused on female empowerment so I HIGHLY recommend checking them out! (LINK IN BIO) You can use code 'JENND20' for 20% off your order, too! (Not an affiliate code, just a nice gift from the company!)
______________________________________________________
Because this necklace is all about love I decided to open up and talk a little about my struggle with self-love recently as I've gone through a MAJOR weight loss journey over the last year. I don't talk about my weight loss often because as someone who is body-positive, I never want to make anyone feel like they should lose weight and I never wanted to look at the comments I would inevitably recieve because, while it took a lot of work and determination to lose the weight, I know the 'congrats' and other compliments wouldn't be for my hard work. When people say nice things about the way I look after losing weight, it is in some way offensive to me because I'm still the girl who weighed 250lbs. I am not a different person and the congratulations, to me, always suggest that I look so much better now and I don't like that idea. I don't look better than before, I look different than before. In fact, before I lost the weight I had MORE confidence than I do now. I know that's difficult for a lot of people to understand. It was difficult for me to understand before searching out articles and videos and people who felt the same way. I didn't lose weight because I thought I was unattractive as a fat person, I lost weight because I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and advised to lose at least 70lbs. I ended up losing more than that because I felt like every pound I lost, I lost a pound of confidence and convinced myself that if I just lost 5 more pounds I would gain my confidence back. (CONTINUED BELOW)

I didn't lose weight because I thought I was unattractive as a fat person, I lost weight because I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and advised to lose at least 70lbs. I ended up losing more than that because I felt like every pound I lost, I lost a pound of confidence and convinced myself that if I just lost 5 more pounds I would gain my confidence back.

@UniversalPictures sent me this awesome box full of #RuthBaderGinsberg themed goodies to celebrate the digital and physical release of their movie @OnTheBasisOfSex and I could NOT be more excited because I never got a chance to watch it in theaters! I watched it last night and I was amazed at how much I didn't know about #RBG. We all know at this point that she's a revolutionary lawyer, judge, supreme court justice, and feminist icon but this movie is about how she got there. It starts with her first year at Harvard Law and shows how she eventually was able to overturn a century of gender discrimination one case at a time which is what I was expecting, but it also shows that she wasn't just battling against gender discrimination. Antisemitism and the fact that she was a working mother also played a huge role in her fight to become a lawyer, despite having attended Harvard and graduating from Columbia university at the top of her class. She also struggled with raising two children and caring for her husband while he was ill. I hadn't realized that she had faced so many setbacks in her life before becoming the badass we all know and love today, it's such an inspiring story. I don't want to give away too much of the movie so I'll shut up now but I highly recommend watching it! #OnTheBasisOfSex is available on Digital and Movies Anywhere now and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand starting tomorrow, click the link in my bio for more info!👩‍⚖️⚖ Have you seen the movie or read her book? If so, let me know what you think! And let me know if I should watch the documentary if you've seen both!
