No More Chill

No More Chill



I grew up believing that emotions were a sign of weakness. In our society it's often insinuated or made blatantly clear that if a woman wants to make it in this world she has to put aside her "girlish" tendencies to feel, care, be compassionate. An attitude ingrained in men since they are young boys. The general population is raised in an environment which tells men to be strong, cold, cut throat, and to show no compassion, no fear, no feelings. Women, however, are allowed to have feelings although these same feelings are what relegate us to being dismissed...


You're not what you eat

You're not what you eat

 


Growing up, at least one person in my family was on a fad diet at any given time.

According to the most famous astrologer in the world, Susan Miller, “Astrology is the study of the correlation between the astronomical positions of the planets and events on earth.

BE YOUR OWN MUSE

BE YOUR OWN MUSE

You can’t have a conversation about self-love without talking about selfies. And I know what you’re thinking. They’re tell-tale signs of narcissism, insecurity and even sociopathy (according to some studies by the American Psychology Association). But a number of women artists, and women, in general, have taken to selfies and used them as a medium for self-expression, an opportunity to produce counter images to what society deems a woman should look like.

With a recent exhibition charting the history of the selfie at London’s Saatchi gallery, it...
