The Revolutionary Tampon


Let’s face it- that time of the month is never something us girls are excited about.

But imagine if you lived in a place where feminine products were nearly impossible to find-maybe even obsolete altogether.  Continue reading “The Revolutionary Tampon”

My Fave Bloggers!

 

For most aspiring bloggers, it’s easy to agree that we were all inspired by one influencer or another. I don’t think we really wake up one day, declaring that blogging will be our profession. I think that we’re lured there by the beauty of the lives that our favorite bloggers live. Continue reading “My Fave Bloggers!”

What do you want to do when you graduate school?

I want to do studies of management and luxury marketing and have my own brand of cosmetics or work into the world of fashion, makeup, etc.

Saturday Chat

For this Saturday Chat I want to talk about anxiety.

I know for some people, they don’t think it’s  legitimate.

For others, it’s incredibly real, as they suffer from anxiety.

Let me just say this.

Even if you experience these things or not, stop judging people.

Just because you haven’t personally experienced certain feelings does not mean in any way that they do not exist. What could be hard for one person could be easy for the someone else.

No matter what the situation is, just be a nice human being.

Be a good friend, be there for people. Half of the time, we all just want a shoulder to cry on, someone to listen. Be that person. It might not seem like you’re doing that much, but you’re saving someone in the way they need to be saved.

I posted another cover on YouTube dedicated to the people who suffer from anxiety. I present to you Mad World by Gary Jules, you can watch it here.

Make a difference.

Until next time,

Chloe

Meet Paige

FullSizeRender (13)

Hi there! My name is Paige, I’m 16 and a junior. I’m a pre-professional dance and I work at an art museum.

What would you like to do when you graduate?

I’d really like to dance, whether it’s in a small company or off-broadway, that’s the dream!

Why do you think women judge each other so harshly?

I think it’s to make themselves feel better! I mean, if someone says to themselves something negative about someone else, it automatically brings up positive thoughts about themselves. People just want to feel good about themselves, they’re just going about it in the wrong way.

What do you think young women need to hear more often?

I think that they need to hear that life is tough, but you can still be kind! It’s hard to get to where you want to be, but you don’t have to “step on everyone” to get there.

What do you think is your best quality?

I think I’m really compassionate towards helpless victims; animals, people affected by violence etc.

What inspired you to become the person that you are?

My family is very arts-oriented and I was really lucky to grow up in such a great environment.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Just becoming the person that I am. I’ve overcome depression, eating disorders and self harm and I’m very proud of my recovery.

What advice would you give your younger self?

To try not to be so hard on myself! Not everything is the end of the world- try to find the good in things.

How do you find ways to be happy?

It’s really the little things that matter the most to me. A really nice day, seeing a friend unexpectedly, etc.

Ranting and Raving

Today I want to talk about why I decided to start going back to the gym.

I feel like working out is a very touch subject; people are either extremely active or not at all.

I’ll admit, I wasn’t a person dying to go to the gym, and honestly I’m still not. But because my friends were all going and had invited me to go I figured, why not? Now that I’ve been going regularly, I’ve learned to appreciate it more.

Now I might sound like a broken record for those of you who aren’t very interested in working out, but let me tell you, it’s worth it.

Aside from the laziness factor, there really aren’t really any negatives when going to the gym. Here’s my list of reasons of why you should start working out.

  1. You get to meet new people and make friends.
  2. You’re finally working on that revenge bod to get back at that guy who blew you off. Okay, maybe a guy didn’t break your heart, but getting your butt in shape is going to give you then ultimate confidence.
  3. If you bring a friend with you, you guys can establish a routine together, like running a couple miles on the treadmill while checking out the cute guys downstairs lifting weights.
  4. Overall, it’s going to affect your life in a huge way. You’ll start making healthier choices, and feel more energized.
  5. You should be in shape so you’re always ready to physically kick ass if ever needed, because let’s face it, the world is a sketchy place.

And in case you didn’t appreciate my reasons, here’s a list from another source.

  • Exercising reduces stress
  • Working out boosts the happy chemicals
  • It improves self -confidence (obvs)
  • If you exercise outdoors, you’ll boost your self esteem even more.
  • It prevents cognitive decline
  • It alleviates anxiety
  • It will boost brainpower
  • It’s going to sharpen your memory too
  • It will help control addiction
  • Exercising increases relaxation
  • You’ll be more productive
  • You’ll inspire others
  • Exercising can boost your creativity
  • You’ll get sick less

So get out there, girl! In the end, all this hard work is for you.  You push yourself, you get to become the best version of yourself. Go kick ass and look great doing it.

Until next time,

Chloe

Music Monday

Closer by The Chainsmokers featuring Halsey

THIS HAS BEEN MY JAM ALL WEEK.

I absolutely love it, I listen to it at the gym, when I’m driving to or from work.

I love that it tells a little story about young love; I feel like one of the biggest problems with music nowadays is that none of these songs tell a story like they used to back in the day.

AND.

I just got a tattoo on my shoulder so whenever that line comes up, “bite that tattoo on your shoulder,” I feel like it’s a personal shout out to me, even thought it’s not at all.

I hope you all had a wonderful Monday.

Until next time,

Saturday Chat

Image.jpg

Hey. What’s Up. Hello.

Let’s see, what to chat about.

How about I just give you all a run down of what’s going on behind the scenes.

I’ve been working about forty hours this week, including a couple of graveyard shifts. Hence the delay in posts. I’m tired of making excuses though. This is what I love to do, and even if I’m working a lot or out exploring, I will always make time for this blog.

With that said, even though I’ve been working a lot, my mind is still busy creating. I’ve recently decided to challenge myself musically by covering and posting as many of my favorite Disney songs as I can. So far, I’m having a lot of fun doing this. Today was my first and only full day off in a while and I spent it writing and singing.

I’m also currently working on an essay about something that I feel very strongly about. Sadly, I can’t say what it exactly is quite yet, but I’m very excited to be sharing it with you all. Here’s a hint I can give you about the topic: acceptance.

I always have a notebook with me to brainstorm ideas because let’s face it, I have a new idea every day. I’m researching things to best support these future projects that I hope will be something of value to you. Many of these projects are all revolving around self-improvement.

Everything I write, everything I share with you all are things that I am very passionate about, and I feel like these things that I experience are things that I have learned so much from.

Until next time,

Chloe

Meet Dani

What is your name age and occupation?

Danielle Kelley (most of my close friends & family call me Dani), 30, I work in Digital Marketing for a technology company as a Product Owner & I’m also a Freelance Writer & Editor.

What do you think young women need to hear more often?

Being a woman is HARD; hell being a human is hard these days but what a beautiful journey it can be. It’s so much more than being strong, but having to fall all the way down (more than once) and understanding that picking ourselves back up can’t always be done ALONE. I believe that life is a little harder for women because we are constantly having to prove our status. We have to prove that we can balance motherhood, a career, the choice to not have kids, our sexuality, marriage, friendships… it’s exhausting.

Why do you think women judge each other so harshly?

We can be very judgmental by nature but I think one of the main reasons women judge so harshly is simply because they don’t love themselves FIRST. We are a reflection of ourselves and I’m a firm believer that what we get back, what we put into the Universe. It’s not hard to be kind, show respect, lift one another up as women and support each other, but it is hard for women to just be themselves and not care what other women think of them. The amount of solace and the kindness I’ve received from other women, just by showing a small amount of support and gratitude is incredible. Let’s not make each other small by making yourself look bigger. Just accept that we are all different and on our own journey to  success, happiness… and LIFE.

What do you think is your best quality?

We are our toughest critics and often driven by fear, if we allow ourselves to fall down to the ground and believe that we are strong enough to pick ourselves back up, we can achieve so much more. Life isn’t all rainbows and sunshine— it’s rainbows, sunshine, unicorns, thorns, needles, fire and beauty all rolled up into one. Don’t let fear limit you, but help you drive down this chaotic path we are all on. When you see what you’re capable of, understand your strengths, accept your challenges and keep moving forward, it’s one of the many reasons why I can still keep going in life.

What advice would you give your younger self?

BE NICE TO YOURSELF FIRST!!! This is what I would love to tell each and every woman I meet. We don’t exist to please men. We don’t exist to please women. We don’t exist to be rich one day. We don’t exist to drive a nice car and live in a fancy house and be better than everyone else. We exist to be a little bit better versions of ourselves than the day before. To grow and learn and understand the challenges that are life and that the simple things, really can make you happier.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

As a woman who grew up with major challenges, lost a parent suddenly at a young age and didn’t value herself at all until the past couple of years, I’m proud of my strength, hard work, motivation, and independence. I’m happy that I can now see the good in most things and I’m becoming comfortable with who I am. I embrace my “nerdiness” and enjoy being a voracious learner. I’m not afraid to take major risks and love the crazy life journey I’m on.

What advice would you give your younger self?

Advice I would give to my younger self- without the depth of a kind soul, life will be NOTHING of value to you.

How do you find ways to be happy?

I find a tremendous amount of joy traveling, reading books, drinking strong coffee, deep, wonderful conversations and laughing until it hurts. The life I’m building is simple and it makes me feel incredibly empowered to know that I am entirely up to me and that I have opportunities and choices.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Chloe, your blog is beautiful and I love the message you are portraying. We need to stand together as women and not against each other. This small act of kindness you are putting out into the Universe, reflects what a beautiful soul you are. KEEP IT UP.

“To experience love for each other, we have to love and let love.”

Kindly,

Danielle Kelley

Camille


My name is Camille and I’m a 20 year old business student.

Why do you think women judge each other so harshly?

I think that we have “models” that we always refer to so we compare ourselves and other girls to these models. Also, I think that most of girls that judge so harshly are maybe not so self confident and they try to feel good by comparing themselves to other girls.

What do you think young women need to hear more often?

That they are pretty the way they are and that they are equal to men! They should hear that they can become everything they want, they should not limit themselves.

What do you think is your best quality?

Good question! I think my best quality is to be determined, I’ll always do my best to achieve my project! And I will never let someone tell me I can’t do something. If they do, I’ll show them they are wrong.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

My studies! I am proud of being accepted into business school!

What advice would you give your younger self?

To believe in myself.

How do you find ways to be happy?

I find happiness when I am with my boyfriend and my family! I am also happy when I am at the gym, where I learn to love a little bit more of myself.

How do you learn to love yourself more?

By doing sports and feeling stronger. Also thanks to my family and boyfriend who always support me and tell me that I am great as I am and that they love me the way I am.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Just that every girl should accept themselves!
