last year, @gucci drew a fake unibrow on a white guy in a turban for its fall '18 runway show. i grew up insecure about my body hair to the point that i hated my entire body, and it was disappointing af to see the brand tokenize indian religious headwear and south asian features on a white person. flash forward a year later, to when i finally felt *almost* comfortable enough in my own skin to wear this gucci spring '19 dress and reveal the chest hair i've been embarrassed about since puberty. this photo is my first step in reclaiming my body and my hair and finding the courage to love myself. 2019 is gonna be my year of self love and self confidence. also, fuck off @gucci 💖
I’m not good enough. I feel shame. I wish I was perfect. Who am I? Have these thoughts ever crept into your mind? Girl, they could be having a negative effect on your business. How are they even connected? I’m here with a mini training to explain. You ready? Here are 4 Things Causing Self Doubt in Entrepreneurship: THINGS YOU WERE TOLD WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER This might sound strange but stories or messages that you heard when you were a kid will stick around into adulthood. Little Tops remembers what I heard from my parents, friends bullies…anything negative stays with you regardless of age and pops into your mind at the most random times. They don’t just go away, they creep in when you are older and could be affecting your mindset. SENSE OF TOXIC SHAME A deep concept, yas but it’s essentially thoughts of shame running on a constant loop in your mind. This could have started when you were younger as well. A perfect example is thinking “I am bad” when you misbehaved vs. “I did a bad thing.” Recognize if this voice is in your head…if you are living in a constant state of shame for all that you didn’t get done. PERFECTIONISM Do you often feel like you don’t measure up? That you have to get more done but it also has to be perfect for you to have worth? HEALTHY SENSE OF SELF Maybe this is the first time you are even thinking about your true sense fo self. Do you have a sense of self outside of your business? Is that what defines you? Are you drowning trying to balance having some sense of who y o u are outside of your work (and with all of the other roles you might play…wife, mom, friend etc.) What is your self worth based on? Do you have a healthy sense of self worth at all? I am going to do another mini training about how to address these common distractions so stay tuned for that. Thasssit. Was this helpful to you? Lemme know in the comments below. Happy Sunday
I want to start off by saying that a few months ago I set the intention to know what it looks like as a woman to be treated with honor by men. Since then I have had many beautiful encounters with male friends, male strangers, dates, etc. that have left me feeling like: Wow, this is a man who is sure in his self and knows how to honor the feminine! Shout out to all of you wonderful men, you know who you are. Which is why encounters like these are so contrasting. One feels loving, open, receptive, humble and the other feels the need to put the feminine down to keep their own masculine power. This comes out of a space of fear and insecurity... because in truth balance comes when women are also operating from their divine power! I really felt comfortable saying this because I know men who aren’t there yet sometimes just need help in realizing that there is a different way.• I met this guy at a spiritual event while on my way out. He was intuitive alright! This guy managed to pick up most of my insecurities in 5 mins: He started off with “Your sweater makes you look like a grandma” (I had actually contemplated wether or not to wear the sweater). He told me I looked like a child. Then, when I told him that I do Reiki, he called me a typical L.A. girl and laughed in my face! When I got sensitive he began to blame it on me not having high enough self esteem!!! I was shocked when he asked for my number. • Like I said in my last post, I am still re-learning how to stand up for myself (I used to know how when I was younger but I grew too sensitive to handle the backlash). I realize that it’s not just about me either... I have to call out anything that doesn’t sit right in my soul and stop worrying about other people’s feelings and how they will receive me. Believe it or not, I was worried about hurting THIS guys feelings with my words. I am learning. I am grateful for all of the contrast and what it teaches. Now time to curl up in my bed with some tea...
This is how we do it ladies!! Im sick of misogynistic men men acting like women don’t hold other women accountable for their actions, simply because they don’t do it to their bros. I shut this fucker down, and he deleted whole threads of woman hating rhetoric. Sadly, girls or women had the opportunity to reply, as this all happened within minutes. #progress#metoo#gillette#gillettead#toxicmasculinity#feminism#feminist
DID YOU KNOW: Australia ranks 23 out of 160 countries in the Gender Inequality Index. In Australia, 32.7 % of parliamentary seats are held by women, and 90 % of adult women have reached at least a secondary level of education compared to 89% of their male counterparts. Yet the Global Gender Gap report has ranked Australia 46th out of 144 countries due to the gender pay gap being 15% less than men. That’s 85 cents for every dollar that a man takes home. In addition, women spend almost twice as many hours doing unpaid care work compared to men. This isn’t good enough. Australia is a country with a historical masculine bias and we still have a very long way to go. Women shouldn’t have to choose between being feminine or masculine, or between being a wife and mother or a CEO. In honour of all the women who came before us and fought for the opportunities we have now, lets continue to close the gap.
