I had no idea that nearly 1 in 5 American girls have either left school early or missed school entirely because of a lack of access to period products. This causes them to cause them to miss out on class, sports and other opportunities, which hurts their confidence during an already hard time for girls - puberty . 😢
While I don’t have an actual school pic to share, I still wanted to help raise awareness, so I went to my neighborhood school and snapped this pic. It breaks my heart to think about the young women who go here that are going through a million things already, and may have to deal with missing school and getting behind because they can’t afford period products.
Let’s make a difference together! Here’s how to you can help too:
1. Post a throwback photo of you and use #EndPeriodPoverty before August 20th, tagging @always_brand. This will trigger an additional donation of a month’s supply of pads (that’s 12 pads!). They will be donated to girls in the US via @FeedingAmerica, their school pantry & other networks ❤️
2. Every purchase of Always from July 29th to September 8th will also trigger a donation of product to girls in need 🙌🏻
3. Join the conversation and help us end the stigma around periods and lack of access to period products. This way girls who need products are confident enough to speak up and we can work together to find a solution 🙋🏻‍♀️
4. Tag and share this post with your friends so more people know about this AMAZING initiative!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and for all of your support ALWAYS!
XO 💋

Es un honor trabajar con @always_brand, esta vez para ser un agente de cambio 💙
Casi 1 de 5 jóvenes en USA faltan a clases o se van temprano por no tener acceso a los productos necesarios para lidiar con su periodo y Always esta haciendo algo para cambiar esto!
Como pueden ayudar:
1. Publiquen un #tbt post en su colegio con #EndPeriodPoverty antes del 20 de Agosto para generar una donacion.
2. Cada compra de productos Always desde Jul 29 hasta Sept 8 genera una donacion.
3. Habla de esto sin pena y haz tag a tus amigas! ❤️

Abhishek Hajela on photographing #Bharatanatyam students in Kanchipuram, #TamilNadu

Looking resplendent in red, purple and mango-coloured silk sarees, a group of young Bharatanatyam students gracefully orchestrated one mudra after another; their bright costumes splashed against the earthy tones of the storied Kailasanathar Temple. But more than the photos I and my American friends took that afternoon, I cherished the two-hour bus ride with these students to the temple town of Kanchipuram, where Kailasanathar stands. It was a laugh riot. After briefly explaining the dance form to us, the girls hijacked the mike, gleefully translating Tamil jokes to English. They were excited about the shoot and we were thrilled to click them in the art-rich temple complex. This was in 2011. A year later I learnt that students of Sridevi Nrithyala performed at the London Olympics, and the dancer in the yellow saree, Shravanthi Sainath, went on to act in the Academy Award winning movie Life of Pi.

There was a time in my life when a proper vacation wasn’t even thought of. Sure, I’d use up most of my travel the All American Girl way: weddings, girls weekends, bachelorette parties, a visit with family for holidays, etc.
-
My time off from work had turned into a routine and to make matters worse I was always thinking about work, worrying about something, checking emails, and frantically taking calls.
-
I was never really off even when I was “off.” I know you know what I’m talking about here...!!!
-
This stress eventually caught up with me and blessed me with a gorgeous stress rash that came with the looks of leprosy and took me out of work for 6 weeks. Let’s just say it scared the living shit out of me.
-
During my leave of absence, I learned how to better manage stress and with some time under my belt I got ahead of it.
-
I started going on retreats and doing more things for me.
-
Getting to meet like-minded people from all over the world that have turned into lifelong friends has been incredible.
-
Over the years. I’ve mastered how to “turn off” work and that's no easy task.
-
I’m able to relax and not think about work while I’m off and on vacation and that’s been magical for me and my most favorite thing to teach clients.
-
I want all of this for YOU!
-
I want you to take a trip for YOU!
-
I want YOU to relax and recharge YOUR mind body soul and spirit.
-
Remember, this recharge isn’t selfish. It’s necessary to maintain and sustain your success, happiness, and quality of life.
-
Ask yourself this, when is the last time you did something for yourself?
-
Something YOU truly wanted to do not what you had to do, thought you had to do or were obligated to go to.
-
YOU deserve this!
-
Your SPIRIT is begging you for a recharge and wants you to open up to a new stress-free way of living!
-
Your SOUL is asking to be revived and will be forever grateful that you did this for yourself!
-
We’re down to the last few spots for my retreat to
{ B A L I } in September. Contact me if this retreat is for you!
-
💋, CVZ
P.S. You can see more deets on IG-Story in the
{ B A L I } RETREAT!

What book do you hope to read soon?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m looking forward to this copy of The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell! It sounds intriguing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
DESCRIPTION
Sam Hill always saw the world through different eyes. Born with red pupils, he was called “Devil Boy” or Sam “Hell” by his classmates; “God’s will” is what his mother called his ocular albinism. Her words were of little comfort, but Sam persevered, buoyed by his mother’s devout faith, his father’s practical wisdom, and his two other misfit friends.
⠀⠀
Sam believed it was God who sent Ernie Cantwell, the only African American kid in his class, to be the friend he so desperately needed. And that it was God’s idea for Mickie Kennedy to storm into Our Lady of Mercy like a tornado, uprooting every rule Sam had been taught about boys and girls.
⠀⠀
Forty years later, Sam, a small-town eye doctor, is no longer certain anything was by design—especially not the tragedy that caused him to turn his back on his friends, his hometown, and the life he’d always known. Running from the pain, eyes closed, served little purpose. Now, as he looks back on his life, Sam embarks on a journey that will take him halfway around the world. This time, his eyes are wide open—bringing into clear view what changed him, defined him, and made him so afraid, until he can finally see what truly matters.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks to @littlebirdpublicity for sending this my way!

We united as one and celebrated the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements that women have been fighting for everyday. We really stood up and were bold for change. Girls saved the world, while others fought for equality, while some, reminded us that democracy is still a beautiful thing. And as the #MeToo movement stood strong, others purrrsisted that girl power will eventually impeach Trump.

And few, importantly reminded us of the huge problem that sadly still lingers with gun violence, and how it should be regulated, rather than women’s rights. And let’s not forget the oil spills, because if we drill, we will spill. While others just wanted to have their voices heard.
Young superhero brothers stood tall and proud, and showed us how they have been taught to respect, and that their mom is the real hero here. There was even a @KatieVigos sighting as she was being cherished, consoled, and respected by her beautiful husband @JakeVigos.

All of this while I marched with two of my very good friends. ♥️ I was even lucky enough to hang with someone I look to as a mentor @Terry Hays-Horner from American Association University of Women (AAUW), a women’s group founded in 1881, who advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy, and research.

And as the sun shined bright among us, in all of this I was reminded again, that together we can transform society for the better. I loved how we marched peacefully with millions around the world, and reminded everyone once again how we need and are indeed making this wonderful, positive, and very powerful change.

Let me tell you a story about my #melaninmagic moment. I was 13 years old and my sister and I use to go help my mom at her hair shop. We are closing shop and one of my moms employee and their friends were sitting down and talking about different skin tones (side not this is a thing in the African American community idk why). So one of her friends who is a lighter shade of black was saying how she was glad her daughter didn’t end being dark skinned because her husband was. And everybody was like what do you mean? She looks and points at me saying that she didn’t want her daughter to be as dark as me. I looked at her dead in the eyes, trying to hold back my tears because I didn’t want them or her to see I was hurt by what she said. The room got really quiet and nobody said anything and they just looked at me. I proceed to keep on cleaning and helping my mom close the shop. I never told my mom this and I’ve kept this to myself for all these years. What she said never made me vulnerable it actually made me stronger. I’ve always been secure with my skin and who I was. To all the young girls out there just like me who have been picked on for their looks just know that one day it might get you into a @remyma and @chrisbrownofficial music video one day.
Thank you @go2talent for the opportunity ❤️

I never imagined myself walking into a gala with hairy underarms, & legs, bushy eyebrows, minimal makeup & an Afro. If you would’ve told me my senior year, when I wore this dress for prom, that I would look like this at 23, I would’ve laughed because this is the exact opposite of what I thought beauty was.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“you should perm (straighten) your hair again” “I don’t think black girls are pretty, but you are of course” “You will be so beautiful growing up, I can see it, but those eyebrows” “Can you please shave your body hair?” “Your head & forehead are too big for you to look good with short hair” “I don’t date black women/men”. Lastly, “if people/friends/family don’t understand, just teach them”. (Some phrases I’ve heard)

Too often I’ve conformed to the patriarchal Eurocentric beauty standards. Over the past few years I realized the amount of emotional labor that I went through to teach others. “If people/friends/family don’t understand, teach them”, is often a common statement said to me. Too often, people become uncomfortable with your self-growth, & especially when you are different from them. Too often these very same people expect education, and then as the ‘dust settles’ & they raise their consciousness, they want to pat you on the back for being so “strong”. The constant expectation to live through ignorance, intolerance, etc., to then turn around and educate these same people is an expectation that should no longer exist. I am not your educator for race, gender, class, etc. I am not your token.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Finding people who care about what effects you on a personal but also in a societal aspect has been an amazing experience over the past few years. I couldn’t be more thankful for amazing friends & allies. & especially the POC Shambhala meditation group.

I am a Black-Jamaican-American-Floridian-Mainer-Queer-Woman, and a daughter of a white mother. I am not limited to each of these identities. They all intersect into so much more of who I am. I no longer need to strive for other people’s ideals of who I should be. I strive to be authentic. To be Gabrielle Deloris. And only I can define that.

My name is Gordon and welcome to my tape:
It has been a month since I have landed in China and here is a little update 🤙🏽 -
-
1: Had an interesting SITUASIAN at the airport, someone took my luggage and I spent my first 4 hours in China rescuing my bag. 🤦🏻‍♂️ -
-
2: EVERYONE looks at me, maybe because I dress American, but like what is Wong? 🇺🇸 -
-
3: I have the luxury of my own apartment and someone who cooks and cleans, Maid in China, am I right? 👵🏼 -
-
4: The driving is hilarious and this is where the stereotype comes from because, Ho Lee Fuk they scare me. 😲
-
5: $100 got me through a whole month here because everything is cheap. Cha Ching! 💴
-
6: I don't know if these girls are China get in my pants, but they take me out to dinner and travel with me. I mean I'm game. 🤷🏻‍♂️ -
-
7: Most Asians look young and healthy because they literally Wok everywhere, America needs to exercise more. 👲🏻 -
-
8: Ni hao does Micheal Phelps swim for so long, I did 1000 meters in an Olympic training pool and almost died 🏊🏼 -
-
9: I witnessed my first Tea Ceremony, boy was it amazing and relaxing, but it took Oolong time. 🍵
-
10: Okay Yuan more pun I promise. I have a "girlfriend" because she wants an American baby (I swear), I don't know if she understands that two Wongs don't make a White (but seriously they need another term for clingy in china, like chingy) 🙅🏻‍♂️ -
-
It has definitely been a whirlwind of events but Irma God has it been amazing (hope all my friends in Florida are safe!) 🌪
-
p.s. I kicked one of my student's ass in ping pong, it felt like I was playing against a not so Great Wall 🏓

Cost of living in China: 300

Another great choice!I would want Cuban American singer - songwriter Camila Cabello as Paloma Gonzalez a.k.a Pink Turbo Ranger in a "Power Rangers Turbo" movie.
As much as i love her when she was in "Fifth Harmony" and now a solo artist,i would love to see her in acting and take on some good acting roles like this one!For her character's profile:She's a 16 year old high school sophmore who makes straight A's in school,one of the popular girls in school,and the daughter of a father who owns and runs one of the best and famous car companies in town.She's also the love interest of Ricky Thompson(who's been having a crush on her since the first grade,but little does he know,she's been having crush on him ever since too).Her dad wants her to run the family car company business,but her dream is to become a car designer one day(which her dad disapproves of).Some people in school think she's a snobby,mean,spoiled rich girl,but she's completely the opposite of that.She very kind,outgoing,generous,very sociable,doesn't like when other people get bullied(just like Nia is),and a great friend to her friends.

To all the beautiful Brown Skin women out there you have been HEAVY on my spirit. I know living in a white colonized world we are being ignored. We are looked at as not enough, or “your pretty for a Black girl” And when they do show Dark skin women she has green eyes, alot of makeup, straight hair and a hour glass shape. Which we can also breed as well but the full lip, wide nose, average size, beautiful kinky hair dark skinned women is rarely depicted as beautiful. Nah those ones are the ones they show as being “the homegirl”, the “comforter” the “strong Black woman”. For me growing up in Phoenix where I wasn’t asked to go to prom. I was the cool “homegirl” with the beautiful Native American mother and my male friends would wish I would look more like her, light skinned. So to all the beautiful dark skinned women out there whether you are from various continents don’t allow society or anyone in your circle tell you or act passive around you on your “looks”. Don’t let media and even social media stop you from letting your melanin shine. Your brown-ness is beautiful!! Your skin is amazing and it will be cherished by those that have decolonized their thinking. To all the young girls out there love your skin! Kiss your skin! Look at yourself in the mirror and say “I love the skin I’m in!!” Own it!! Claim it!! It’s Yours!!! #lovetheskinyourin #blackgirlmagic #stopcolorism

2. ✅The company must give back to the greater good in some way! @swoopbags supports @smiletrain an organization which travels the world correcting cleft lip and pallets!
Friends, I now have 3 of these swoop sacks it’s like Santa Clause’s fun meets Maria Condo’s organizational skills😂! They seriously make me happy! All my boys LEGOs are in one bag! The kids are loving it because they can see all the legos to build the perfect creation but then clean up is super easy just swoop the bag up!! It’s seriously ingenious! My girls are using theirs for the chaos that was their American girl clothes and dolls! And I am using the third one for all things pool, towels,,goggles, toys, swim diapers! This product is helping me with my #summersurthrival plan, go check out @swoopbags such a fabulous product and company! What are some of your toy organizing solutions? I would love to hear some more suggestions!

Found this the other day- Back in the late 90’s legendary photographer @artbrewer was looking for a “Backyard Shaper”to shoot for a surfboard edition of @surfer_magazine and I fit the description perfectly. This photo is taken in my old backyard on Comsat Road, in the first shaping room I ever owned. I bought it semi-finished for $300 and Ed Searfoss (@countrysurfboardshi) helped me move it by flatbed truck from up the hill in Pūpūkea! Notice how thick that door is? The whole thing was layered with old carpet, drywall and 3/4” soundboard to help keep the noise of my planner from bothering the neighbors or waking up our kids if I was shaping at night. It was perfect because I could take 30 steps out my backdoor and be straight into work anytime I liked. The boards on the left are a 6 channel single fin I made for Keith Malloy and a @john_john_florence’s 5’0” and those are blanks from Clark Foam. Between that 🇺🇸airbrush (by my good friend @hartart71) and my odd choice of clothes we inadvertently ended up with a strong American theme😂. I have so many good memories from those days of making boards for all my friends and a bunch of talented surfers who were inspiring and really helped push me to improve my designs one board at a time. I was also working finishing pre-shapes for Jeff @bushmansurfboards and he taught me so much about putting together curves and contours and how to really look at a surfboard.
But the very best memories were the little knocks on the door when my girls came out to get me to stop working and take them down the street to the beach😄. When things started getting a little more busy I finally moved to the Waialua Sugar Mill to get a little more space.

- Mikayla Sharrieff, India Skinner and Bria Snell should only be proud of themselves.
-
The 17-year-olds, all juniors at Benjamin Banneker High School in Washington, D.C., created a simple way using copper shards, drinking straws and filter floss to demonstrate how to purify water in school drinking fountains that may be contaminated by lead.
-
The three friends became one of eight teams that are finalists in a #NASA competition to apply space technologies to earthly challenges.
-
They invited people to vote for projects on social media platforms. The water purifier devised by the young women seemed to win attention. Hundreds of schools across the United States have drinking water that is contaminated by lead; it's a serious problem that could use good ideas.
-
The students from Banneker are the only team among the finalists who are all African-American women.
-
At a time when they should have heard nothing but accolades and encouragement, some unidentified people on 4chan, an Internet bulletin board where racists and homophobes have posted anonymous nonsense, began to put up bigoted comments about the young women.
-
The trolls suggested ways to manipulate the NASA voting system to prevent the young women from winning.
-
NASA decided to shut down the voting system because it was compromised. The agency denounced the racist attacks and added, "NASA continues to support outreach and education for all Americans, and encourages all of our children to reach for the stars." ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I joke that they are my old man husbands, but I am not joking they deserve all the love and care despite their behavior as young men post war . Best pseudo husbands yet! Generation X . . .
In the midst of spacing out, I thought of an old friend that I have been meaning to call, well there he was in the store looking for an old military shirt himself. In Philadelphia this is incredibly non existent for me and including the odds of meeting friends at an army navy store. We moved down the street to talk about vets, health care, building homes, USA, photos, music and girls. It was awesome. I still feel like I suck as an American. That’s ok because if I I, we, didn’t question how can we improve and better serve and love each other. @anunreasonableman

Hung with friends and supported a fund raiser for Lanny Cordola’s Miraculous Love Kids music school in Kabul Afghanistan on 3/25/2018 at Beachwood Brewing🍻 This event was organized and MC’d by “Lucky John" Domingue 🔨 and hosted by the award-winning Beachwood Brewing in Huntington Beach California. The evening was filled with great music, craft beers, and extremely abnormal human behaviors. It also included a live feed from Lanny and his students in Kabul Afghanistan.
Guitarist Lanny Cordola helps Afghani children with his music, producing humanitarian project Girl with a Guitar and the nonprofit The Miraculous Love Kids, with more than 100 youngsters in the war-torn land. Performers such as Brian Wilson also have tapped the children to be in their songs. Lanny also started The Miraculous Love Kids Center, playing and teaching guitar in schools and internally displaced persons camps, and to children on the street.
🇦🇫Please support Lanny Cordola's Miraculous Love Kids music school in Kabul Afghanistan. It's a nonprofit organization supported through benefit concerts, private donations and a GoFundMe page.

Phone with most of the photos/videos from Mexico was stolen (together with my bank cards and lovely Rayban) so this is basically almost everything I have from the trip 😁
What I have learned there:
- I don't like Mexican food. They put tons of lime everywhere, not my favorite dressing. But tacos and burritos were my friends) - Spring break in US is not the best time to go to Cancun. But if you like to hangout with drunk American students then maybe it is 😁 - Mexican girls are not pretty at all. Majority of beautiful people come from other Caribbean countries or Argentina/Brazil. Thanks God there are a lot of them in Cancun 😎 - Beach daytime parties rock, much more fun than typical night club stuff
- Never smoke cigar after 5 cocktails. Bad idea
- If you need cocaine in Cancun just go to restroom of any club, your dealer is already waiting for you 😂 - Never plan skydiving for the last day of your vacation. There will be shitty weather for a jump
- Fucking US require a transfer visa even for connecting flights. It's not cool to realize this when you do check in... But you can always book Lufthansa for 1k instead 😔 - I like Spanish 😍 And Google translate)) - Don't forget Mexican immigration form in the hotel if you plan to go to Cuba. There is a chance to realize that you can't leave the country without it 30min before the flight. Airport running is also kind of sport...
- There are rules in Mexico but if you are nice guy you can always negotiate and in the end nobody gives a fuck. Just be friendly and smile
- If you wear headphones and dance in the middle of central square there is a chance to get a free ticket to the best club in Cancun 😁 - If you walk around at night on your first day and see the sign "Warning! Crocodiles" don't panic. Everybody says they are quite nice and friendly...
- This is the longest insta post ever. There were so many cool stories but I am tired to type 😂

This is the reason why I am and will always be PRO-gun. If you know me you’ve probably heard me speak of my heritage. Pictured here are my ancestors. No, not the Ottomans standing above everybody, but the dead Armenians in the mass grave and their friends and loved ones being forced to stack the bodies. In 1915 the Ottoman Empire (which we now know today as Turkey) began the attempted extermination of the Armenian people. They would kill fathers and sons in front of their families, rape and crucify the girls in front of the mother, and then kill the mother. This became possible when they started confiscating weapons from them. Sabers, axes, rifles, handguns, bread knives, pretty much anything that the regime police could get their hands on and brand as a “weapon”, so that they could carry out their plans without conflict and without insurgency. Almost exactly similar to the way that the SS Gestapo confiscated weapons from the Jews on Kristallnacht, or “the night of broken glass”. Keep in mind that in this time period, what we now label as “assault weapons” DID NOT EXIST YET! Yes, machine guns were owned by the military, but very few civilians had them because of their impractical size and weight of the era, and the fact that they needed 2 or more people to be operated.
An estimated 1.5 million Armenians were killed from 1915-1917. My great grandmother was one of few Armenian women who made it to America and escaped the evil grasp of the Ottoman Turks. This is why I refuse to be disarmed and why I do not support a firearms ban of ANY kind
I refuse to wind up like many of my ancestors did.

Although there was negative energies that kept coming at us, Baylie seemed very confident with her interview, which is all open call was, along with sitting through the seminar introducing us all to NAM and their requirements, and basically the many opportunities the girls get while gaining new friends, social and self-confidence, etc. !!!!

Being a 15 year old African American "kid", I'm obligated to not speak my mind on the issues going on. Not only do I have to fear for my life evryday going to a school that is 1.5 hours away by CTA. BUT, I fear for my brother who is most likely racially stereotyped everyday when he leaves home. Why do we live in a generation where we can't even go outside wothout being afraid something will happen? If I'm with my friends or if I'm on my way home from school, why does my mother have to worry about my safety? It scares me that I have to make sure to semd my mother a text or call her to let her know I'm on my way and where I am about 5 times when I'm on my way home. We shouldn't have to live in a generation where we fear everything and everyone. We shouldn't live in a generation where I can be shot by anyone if I'm at the wrong place at the wrong time. WE SHOULDN'T LIVE IN A GENERATION WHERE BLACK GIRLS AND BOYS HAVE TO FEAR FOR THEIR LIVES JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRICAN AMERICAN. ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 #blacklivesmatter

A bold choice for the royal wedding dress, the house of Givenchy has always been a little left of centre, just like the newly-wed Duchess of Sussex. “At one point in the ‘70s, his entire cabine was almost exclusively African-American girls, and no one was doing that,” designer Jeffrey Banks said of the late Monsieur Givenchy.
#

The house’s former artistic director @riccardotisci17 was also responsible for turning @kimkardashian’s fashion fortunes. “[She was accepted] by nobody,” he said in an interview. “Every designer is dying to dress her now. I don’t care what people thought about Kim. In the beginning, I met her because of my respect for Kanye, and then I liked her a lot and we became friends. I got killed because of this, but I didn’t care.” #

We didn’t know a soul, we didn’t have a house or car, all we had were each other and the luggage you see here. I cannot tell you what an amazing experience it has been. We’ve learnt so much about life and what matters most. We’ve learnt about friendships and learnt a lot about ourselves as individuals and as parents. There were some super challenging times and I’m grateful for my beautiful friends and family back home and on here for being so supportive and checking in. That’s all it takes. A text to check in and see how someone is doing. There were some lonely times - even if it seemed there weren’t. We’ve made life long friends who have welcomed us into their lives and our kids have become best friends - believe me - we know how lucky we are (love you girls). The boys have grown into little men 😥 and have adapted to their new life (with cute slight American accents 🇺🇸 ). Most of all: we’ve grown so close as a family unit. I’ve taken on my role as a stay at home Mum/Mom to be there for Ryan as he takes on a huge role and to be there for my boys/angels 😂. Bring on the next year 🍾💕💙🏋🏽‍♀️✈️🍸🌞

Thank you for showing me patience and what hospitality truly means.
Thank you for giving me my own Guinean name “Aicha”. Thank you for giving me three different languages to learn (French, and some Pular and Malinke). Thank you girls of Guinea for opening up and gaining the courage to confidently express yourselves.
I couldn’t thank you enough for giving me a new family and friends especially my three favorite people (Aye, Ramatoulaye, and of course Mohamed). Thank you, THANK YOU, and Thank YOU for changing my life and certainly my perspective forever.
Love always,

It’s all fun and games until you get haunted and possessed 👍🤙.
.
My friends and I arrived in New Orleans, Louisiana three days ago. Two nights ago, we went on a ghost tour where we learned not only about the rich history, but also the violent goings on of years past that happened in the French quarters. In particular, we learned of Mary, who likes to taunt, prank or trick women who are married, engaged, dating, kissing or “talking to” a man. Her love was lost, and she daughter vengeance as a result.

The next morning, I woke up without a voice. I’ve not been able to speak above a whisper since then, but apparently last night, entirely believing I was still asleep, I climbed out of my bunk bed, carried out a conversation, walked around the hostel and moved my belongings to other rooms which were found in the morning. I was adamant I went to bed third, and didn’t see the last three girls at all, but they confessed to me in the back of an Uber that we’d shared conversation and witnessed me roaming about.

The steps on my health app confirmed this late night adventure, and finding my phone on the fireplace in another dorm room just set my mind into utter disbelief. Hearing my friends describe how they saw me - when I had no recollection - gave me chills through my entire body. Yesterday, sat on the couch between two boys, I felt fingers press against my neck and something run through my hair.

Just now, the girls and I woke up at 5am to take a greyhound bus from New Orleans to Houston, Texas, only to find out upon arrival at the terminal that it has been delayed until 8:30am.
You could chalk these up to sleep waking, sleep talking, coincidence and a miraculous return of my voice, but from here on out I think it’s best not to take any chances.
Side note: do some research into the haunting history of Louisiana! It’s terrifying and often horrific, but incredibly rich and significant. I am fascinated by you @visitneworleans, and I can’t wait to come back. I’ve just started watching American Horror Story: Coven, and love recognizing the stories we’ve heard or places we’ve just set foot.

Tell me, have you ever encountered anything paranormal? 👇

MORE THAN JUST A VIDEO📝This #tbt post is a video that I took when I was documenting my first #wellness competition in Brazil. It was absolutely nerve racking. The timing was unorganized, at the time my português wasn’t as fluent, I couldn’t understand half of what was going on. My coach was as helpful as he could be with me and the chaos. I didn’t bring enough rice to eat throughout the day and thank goodness I had a couple teammates to let me eat some of theirs and Ruffles chips😆When the time came to get on stage we practically ran to backstage, my shoes in hand I’m putting them on literally as I’m in the back of the line watching the other girls go up and my coach hands me wine that we were encouraged to bring for our nerves. Literally threw back the wine, with one hand and buckled my ill fitting heel with the other just as they called my name. I was the last to be called, I hoped to be called first or close to the beginning so peoples focus would be off me after a while...oh god was I nervous, that smile I had was nerves, I couldn’t NOT smile my face was stuck. But ya know what I thought, “don’t fall don’t fall” and as I started posing I was thinking “hell yea, only American here, who cares if you place babygirl, YOU DID IT, now stick your poses get in line and be unbothered”. A few teammates and friends cheering overly loud for me, my coach giving me thumbs up and judges with their poker faces on. I didn’t know my number in português i just remembered the sound from when people told me prior, and as more and more girls got called I heard my number called for 3rd place novice (later 2nd place in my category🏆). I was in shock. After,I had no one waiting for me, no one to call because my reception was bad. No hugs except from my coach. My two best friends there, were competing in their own division so they weren’t around. It was bittersweet. But i was proud. No one has ever seen this video, but it’s just a glimpse into something I thought at one point I thought would be impossible to achieve. All I can do is continue to live my life knowing I can have and do anything I want, and I hope this inspires or helps even one person. ❤

after yesterday's team final, Viktoria Komova said some hasty words on her Russian social network VK in the heat of the moment. Good that she's apologized for it, as her fan of her, I was quite upset to hear that. I hope she learns from this incident & hopefully think twice before she posts anything online again. everyone makes mistakes & im sure she regrets her words, but there's no excuse that she was really wrong. on a side note, congratulations to Great Britain for their first ever team medal at world championships! also congrats to China for winning silver & USA for dominating once again😊 #viktoriakomova #gymnastics photo credits to Christy Ann Linder ❤️

The pads will be donated to girls via @FeedingAmerica, through their school pantry and other networks. #ad

I was raised a @Dodgers fan (my mom the diehard fan of my parents), never in a million years would I ever think I’d have the opportunity to pitch to Major Leaguers (ha, let alone marry one😉❤️), see & call some of the OG -All-American Girls Baseball League members friends (like-what...Maybelle Blair—League of Their Own was my fav movie growing up), have a softball tournament in conjunction with All Star (it’s the first year of the Jennie Finch Classic!😳🤗🤩), having @usasoftball teammates here at FanFest.... I could go on & on. Thank you @MLB for stepping up to the plate & going yard! Can’t wait to see what the future holds! •

Ambitions European Tour has come to an end. I am soooo happy that I went to Prague and Vienna to see One Ok Rock.😭😭
Their stage performances are madness pure from the beginning to the end. Taka's vocal range amazed me again even after all this time. The energy they spread out on the stage can't be better. 😌
BTW, look at one picture with my heart-stick, nearly all the time during Jaded Taka was standing in front of me and my friends, he even crowddived next to us. He pointed at me while singing the line 'I believe I believe I believe in you'. I held his hand for a while more than once. Then, Ryota also came in front of us, we handed over the heart-sticks to him. He took them on stage!! After the encore song American Girls, in which Taka also sang 'Austrian Girls' instead of 'American Girls' a few times, he took all of the heart-sticks backstage!! 😭😭😭😭😭
Taka actually said, 'It's our first time in Austria, but you guys are awesome! We love you guys so much. We are making our new album right now and we are definitely definitely coming back here! Maybe next year or next next year, but we will come back here!' I really hope they will come back again 🙈

"Hi. My name is Naomi and I'm 11 years old.

Me and my friend Carter led a walk-out at our elementary school on the 14th. We walked out for 18 minutes, adding a minute for Courtlin Arrington, an African-African girl who was the victim of gun violence at her school, after the Parkland shooting.

I am here today to represent Courtlin Arrington. I am here today to represent Hadiya Pendleton. I am here today to represent Taiyania Thompson, who at just 16 years old, was shot dead at her home here in Washington, DC.

I am here today to acknowledge and represent the African American girls whose stories don't make the front page of every national newspaper, whose stories don't lead on the evening news.

I represent the African American women who are victims of gun violence, who are simply statistics instead of vibrant beautiful girls full of potential.

It is my privilege to be here today. I am indeed full of privilege. My voice has been heard. I'm here to acknowledge their stories, to say they matter, to say their names because I can. And I was asked to be.

For far too long, these names, these black girls and women have been just numbers. I'm here to say "Never Again!" for those girls too. I'm here to say that everyone should value those girls, too.

People have said that I am too young to have these thoughts on my own. People have said that I am a tool of some nameless adult. It's not true.

My friends and I might be still be 11 and we might still be in elementary school, but we know, we know life isn't equal for everyone and we know what is right and wrong.

We also know that we stand in the shadow of the Capitol, and we know that we have seven short years until we too have the right to vote.

So I am here to honour the words of Toni Morrison: if there is a book that you want to read but it hasn't been written yet, you must be the one to write it.

I urge everyone here and everyone who hears my voice to join me in telling the stories that aren't told - to honour the girls, the women of colour who were murdered at disproportionate rates in this nation."

Lucy is an American/ Italian artist who we became good friends with many years ago. We love spending time at her house on a hill. The girls could enjoy whole days there, painting, sitting in the (olive) tree house, visiting her chickens and Claya’s favourite, cracking the nuts off her almond tree. We always get spoilt by Piero with crunchy sage leaves, prosecco and delicious salamis.

It’s one of those homes where we spend ages saying goodbye as it’s so hard for us to tear ourselves away.

The show was spectacular, but watching these little girls light up was that feeling you get on a Christmas morning. It’s good. You can feel it in your soul good. ⠀

I admit taking an 8 year old and 5 year old to New York City seemed daunting, but they were troopers! We stayed out until at least midnight every night and they never cried about being tired. They wanted to keep going! ⠀

We got to go to @faoschwarz, the tree at Rockefeller Center, Ice skating, American girl, shopping and dinner. just walking around the city was dreamy. ⠀

Already planning our trip for next year! ⠀

It’s important to believe people when they show you who they are, but it’s even more important to never let them show you who YOU are. You decide what you’re worth, and if someone is incapable of living up to your standards, that’s okay. The world is a big place, and if you lose yourself in it, no one will be able to have you...including you. A lot of times in my job, I have to watch my back because girls are always so keen to get their hands on anything I’ve touched. And, these are girls who have fan-girled out when we met, DMed me for my plastic surgeon’s contact info, asked me to help them become a real Playmate (American Playmates are the only real kind—the «international Playmates» are only licensing deals that were made when the USA magazine started to lose money), and even girls who share mutual friends with me. It’s part of my life, and I hate it, but at least I know that the kind of person I want to date would never be the type to be distracted by cheap, shiny things just because they breathed in his general direction. I purposely left LA for a simpler life, but LA’s dumbassery seems determined to follow me. Have fun stabbing each other in the back—I’ll just finish medical school and step over the carnage when you’re done. None of the competing, pettiness, or desperation means anything to me—I learned a long time ago that ego never did anything good for anyone.

We weren’t in the same cluster, since the #Dallas area is just too big, but still spent most of our time together. I was the first one who was living in the Dallas area and while our cluster grew our friendship was growing too. All of us were the first #aupair in each of our families & we were happy to find someone to share our experience and memories together.

We didn’t just meet during our cluster meetings we also spend most of our free time together. We planned our weekend trips together, we ate looooots of frozen yoghurt and were there for each other if one of us had a rough time. 🍨

Since we all had different schedules we couldn’t experience everything all together, but we had trips to Austin, San Antonio, New Orleans, Chicago and Denver together. We spent some of the American holidays together too. But not to forget the fact that our biggest adventure was, that we all know our situation better than anybody else around us. The homesickness, our host kids and all of the craziness that comes with it. We all were in it together. These 4 girls were my back up during my time as an #AuPairinAmerica , they understood me better than anybody else. And this is the reason why our friendship is so deep and special.❤️ Now we're back in our home countries, we have to keep in touch with Whatsapp and social media. We don’t talk to each other every day but we stay updated with each others lives. We just had our reunion in Munich after being apart for almost one year, we managed to come all together for a weekend and it was the best time ever. We are planning more reunion trips in the future. I couldn’t be more grateful to call these girls my best friends." Shout out to Lisa and her lovely au pair friends for nearly making us 😭 with their lush au pair story!

They moved to Detroit a year ago. They are Syrian refugees. They are from Homs.
Dear, kind friends. It's been so many years now that I've been using every platform I know to send the smoke signal "Pray for Syria" and here we are. Overwhelmed. Dropping bombs. It did not have to come to this. This all could have been avoided. I swear. I know it could have been handled with mercy and justice and even peace. But, like an infection which goes untreated, it's systemic.
Oh, God. We thank you that you are the Great Physician and that you are King of Kings. Though the earth shake and the mountains fade away. You are good. Have your way in us, Lord Jesus.

This is no time to faint, friends. I understand. I want to hide, too. But we will see great things...God things.
This picture was taken at a monthly wellness outreach with Syrian American Rescue Network. Monthly wellness weekends helped newly resettled refugees and connect with doctors. medical students, phycologists, music, art, and movement therapists and me-the Healing Season lady.

We haven't done a weekend for months...because there are no newly resettled Syrian refugees. This year the United States has taken in 11 refugees from Syria.

So, Let us pray. And move. And love one another really super hard in this time.

If what the Bible says is true, and I think it is, then perfect love casts out fear. We live in a really fearful time. And the Lord did not give us a spirit of fear but power, love and a sound mind. That means that as we look around us and see amped up fear...we should not fade or shrink but rather draw more strength from our taproot in the heart of Christ and love like we mean it. Like we believe.

Meet Alyssa colón from Cincinnati Ohio. She is a freshman studying Early Childhood and Elementary Education. .
.

How do you feel about being a woman on campus and does that affect your daily life?

Alyssa: I think it is nice at Lee because the majority of the population is girls and you feel like you have more support. Every once in a while, though, you would notice that like, if there is a large group of guys, they give you like a condescending stare and you can feel like they are talking about you. That is one of the main ways I feel it could affect your life, just like the little things. Overall, I feel like there is a good support system for women and girls. I have a lot of good female teachers that are good examples of what you should be, they are passionate about what they do. So, you feel like you have more support.
.
.
.
Do these kinds of things give you hope for the future considering everything going on in the world? .
.
.

Alyssa: Women in general, Lee is doing a decent job. The one thing I would say is it's hopeful that we are doing some things right, but I feel like Women of color, I am Hispanic so, I kind of have a heart for that kind of thing. I feel like women of color are not represented or respected as they should be on campus. I have noticed a lot of girls who are of color, any girl whether they are Asian, African, African American, Hispanic, I have noticed that they feel kind of outcast or they act like more insecure than my white friends, which should not happen. We should all feel like a community, so there are little ways to go. .

I know posting photos of us puts ourselves out there to the public, I share my girls, our experiences, etc but one thing I will not tolerate is uneducated people making critical comments about my girls weight. They have been called sausages this week and that I feed them too much. These body photos show well defined chests, rib cages, hind ends. My girls are extremely muscular, Tana is an American boxer, built larger, squarer with a wider chest. Donut is of UK/European lines, smaller built, finer bones with a lean muscular body.

Recently, I've been toying with the idea for a monthly blog uncovering stories of renegade and rebellious women and lost women writers from the 19C. With books such as Women of Resistance, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, Rad American Women A-Z, Bad Girls Throughout History, and many others, telling stories of lost women from my own specialisation has been a recurring thought as a way to celebrate these lesser-known pioneers and expand the literary and historical canon. // Additionally, as I navigate these years in between my master's and phd, I've been increasingly feeling that I need tangible research projects to maintain my relationship with academia and skills in writing and research. The absence of deadlines, formal papers or conference presentations, and required reading makes it difficult to complete anything of substance and to rid myself of constant imposter syndrome. Plus, I think it's rather an exciting challenge to mold my research interests into something more relevant to friends and readers beyond the academy. There are so many intriguing and fascinating aspects of the Victorian era often lost to the 21st century within mainstream culture yet I believe these stories are relevant and inspiring for a modern audience. // All that to say, I am wondering if any friends or followers have experience with their own blogs. Do you have a platform or website you would recommend that is user friendly, aesthetically pleasing yet also professional looking, and customizable? What tips do you have for maintaining accountability with consistent posts and content, establishing readership, and any other things I should keep in mind? I welcome any and all advice as I navigate this new project.

так сложилось, что я очень люблю сериалы, но смотреть их получается не слишком часто) поэтому в заметках пылится огрооомный список. и мы с друзьями ввели традицию «сериальный вторник». то есть во вторник вечером в любую погоду смотрим парочку серий) обычно это «ходячие мертвецы» и «игра престолов», а в перерывах между ними всякое разное.
недавно (не прошло и 7 лет с даты выхода, ага) начали «американскую историю ужасов». месяца за три-четыре аж три с половиной сезона осилили 😂
говорят, девочки смотрят этот сериал из-за Эвана Питерса) но мне больше нравятся Таисса Фармига и Эмма Робертс, которые получились не слишком похожи на себя, но что поделать, нарисую ещё)) говорят, сезон про ведьм один из самых унылых, но мне понравился, рисовала и рисовала бы их 💙
.
i really like TV shows but i don’t have time to watch them as often as i want) and with my friends we created a tradition “serial Tuesday”: every Tuesday we get together to watch a few series of our favorite TV shows) usually this is the “game of thrones” or “walking dead” but in between we watch other interesting things.
recently we started to watch “american horror story” and i like it very much! it’s said that the girls watch this show because of Evan Peters but i like Taissa Farmiga and Emma Roberts more 😁 they don’t look like themselves on this sketch, but what to do 😂
my friends say that the “coven” season is the most boring but i still like it. and i want to draw these girls again and again)

My host family is great and my kids are so sweet and lovely!

My biggest passion is traveling, and I've visited lots and lots of places already! ✈️🗺📍 This is the best experience of my life! I love being an #aupair: I'm traveling as much as possible, I'm improving my English, I'm meeting lots of new friends from all over the world, I'm learning more about the American culture and I'm becoming more responsible and independent. I'm feel like I'm not only finding my way, but myself as well!

The #USA really are my second home. I'm happy to follow my dreams to live the life I always dreamed of. I can't wait to share a bit of my American life and my American adventures with all of you guys!

The new American Girl is a console gamer. And not only that, she’s a budding esports champion.

The doll-sized “Xbox Gaming Set” was released online and at American Girl retail stores on Monday. “Dolls can get ready to play—and win—in tournaments with friends!” the product description says. It comes with a doll-sized Xbox One S game console that projects 10 different gaming scenes, a controller, a wireless headset, and two game discs. She completes her battlestation with a faux-leather gaming chair with built-in speaker. “We know gaming is a popular activity for girls today, making the new set a great addition to our contemporary Truly Me 18-inch doll line, which allows girls to express themselves and their interests,” a spokesperson told me in an email. “Our product development team worked in partnership with Xbox to ensure the pretend set for dolls accurately reflected the look of the real version.” No word on whether a PC gaming setup is in the works, too.

I don't know what that is. I have never seen a white person with white privilege. I have friends all over the world. Friends of every race, religion and wealth. When I am with these friends I don't see any of that. I see a group of good people going places. I don't know where this "racist" group of people are, because I certainly have never encountered them. There are good people and bad people, but they are not solely one thing or another. With the media blowing up racism like a disease I wonder what life will be like for these two girls? All I see are two beautiful girls who are strikingly different. I think it's absolutely incredible. I don't imagine one girl doing better because of her skin color. I don't think the lighter girl will have white pro legs while her sister ends up in a ghetto. I hope they both do equally well in whatever they choose to do. Not because of their color, but because they deserve to succeed on their own terms.

Friends: 👭👫friends are so easy to find as an au pair because you can meet them at orientation, in your cluster, on facebook group, school, outside, you can find friends at the bar, on the playground! Everywhere. I found my good friend from mexico on facebook group and my best friends from Germany on the trip to Washington D.C. 🙂 •Education: school is something you have to do while au pair year but don´t worry you will love it. You have to do 72 hours which are 6 credits. You can do school on the weekends, week days.. what works for you. I did 2 weekend classes. 1. was @massbayview It was fun. I spend one weekend at school learning about usa and another weekend I went to Kanada to see Niagara falls. 🇨🇦It was amazing (canadian side) my 2. school was @silverbaycourses which was amazing!! ❤️❤️. I had so much fun, met my new friend there and the classes are so much fun also. You can do Joga, painting, hike, music class, theatre, design, photography class. Recomended!! Au pair life: you are working no more than 45 hours, have 1,5 day off and living with family. On weekends you can do what you want. I was mostly traveling 😊 I am working from morning till evening and carrying for two beautiful girls from age 2-5. •Au pair life is amazing for me. I just love it! I have so much fun with my girls, I am teaching them things, exploring new places with them and having great year with my family. I am traveling, getting better in english, on weekends I am out off the house exploring USA and living american dream. 😊 what I also love about being aupair is the opportunity to explore. •explore USA •explore the culture, finding new friends, english, have a new experiences from traveling, be independent, and the most important become a part of the family and find your new family @bs.diary_ ❤️ #iloveapia #aupairinamerica

She has appeared in numerous films including Fired Up, Hancock, Trailer Park of Terror, and Norbit.

Loved By Sophia Claire has far exceeded all of my expectations. What started as a hobby almost 4 years ago, has now become a family business. Chris (my hubby) and I both run this shop full time while raising our 2 beautiful girls. Running LBSC is not easy! There are many days when we work from the moment we wake, till the wee hours of the night (and I wouldn't have it any other way). Because, today I am reminded of how proud I am to be an American and that if we are willing to work hard, we can truly accomplish all of our hopes and dreams. ❤️ Thank you for loving our little handmade shop!

Last night, after a show in Atlanta, I curled up in my pjs in my hotel bed and like many others, watched endless television footage honoring John McCain’s life. He’s always reminded me of my Dad. Not just because they both served as pilots in Vietnam, but because they are both deeply principled men. Men of great character and integrity. When @MeghanMcCain talks about her dad, his commitment to commitment, his fierce loyalty to his friends and the gentle ways he’s loved his little girl, I always feel like she could be talking about mine. And like my dad, I did not always agree with his politics. But party does not have the corner market on honor. I texted him through tears to tell him as much. I can’t stop thinking about what McCain’s life taught us about reconciliation. Across the aisle, across the world. When he returned to Hanoi to visit the place he’d endured years of endless suffering at the hands of his captors, the world marveled at his commitment to foster and strengthen peaceful ties with Vietnam and it’s leaders. Far from hardened, his heart sought common ground. Last night I watched hours of beautiful testimonies from his political allies and adversaries alike. What kind of man asks his two greatest political opponents, both of whom he lost a harrowing Presidential race to, to deliver his eulogy? It makes me want to cry. What a gentleman. Mr. McCain, may there be generations of American boys and girls eager to follow your fearless example in your service to this country. We’re in desperate need. Rest well, Senator.
