// Need a very last minute Valentine's Day gift? Shopbop offers free 2-day Amazon Prime shipping if you're a member (*details here)... and I'll gladly accept any of these ;)

// The true story of how Teen Vogue got mad, got woke, and began terrifying men like Donald Trump. THIS is the kind of stuff our young women need to be exposed to. THIS is the type of response and reaction that needs to be normalized. THIS is one small step in securing a future that truly is female.

// I've been lusting after a cowhide rug since Whitney got her blonde one. I'm loving this one especially. Unfortunately I just don't have anywhere it would work so I"ll dream from a distance.

// If you're into photography - professionally or just as a hobby - you can take this free strengths assessment! It only takes 5 minutes and it was actually incredibly helpful. I'm hoping to learn a lot and grow in 2017. And photography is on the list of things to polish up on!

// Society is creating a new crop of alpha women who are unable to love. LOOOOOOOOOL! Of course this piece is from Fox News. What a load of garbage. Keep being alpha, babe! and love YOU!

// Pennsylvania senator to Trump: "Come after me, you s**t-gibbon" HAHAHAHA Okay, after this and that mural, I'm moving to PA. But only in the summer. I shall winter in the south.

// Silencing Elizabeth Warren backfires on Senate GOP. Can't keep a strong woman down!

// Me trying to make friends. lololol The struggle is real, y'all.

// ICYMI: These are the 6 books I've lined up to read... Have any recommendations to add to my growing list? // Did you see This Charming Life got a little makeover?! If you're reading via RSS or Bloglovin', pop over to see it for yourself!

PS; I feel that it's worth noting... I won't ever stop sharing my* opinion and my beliefs on my blog, no matter who objects or tries to use it as a weapon against me. Don't want to read about how much Trump sucks or how we need feminism? Well, there are other blogs for that. (* emphasis on "my"... I speak for myself only.)


  1. I, for one, am LOVING the new voice you've shown on this blog. It's so refreshing to have a blog actually speak up and not shy away from politics or (much needed) feminism pushes for the sake of "likes" and affiliate dollars. Keep doing you - there are a lot of us who appreciate it and get so inspired from it!

  2. yessss love the feminist power in this! and those darling ethereal dresses!

  3. I love that you're posting about current events! The world needs more awesome women like you, and it's so cool seeing a whole new generation realize that.

  4. I find "The Future is Female" slogan to be problematic. Let me say first of all, I am a radical feminist, for sure. But a crucial part of radical, intersectional feminism is the rejection of gender. As I'm sure you agree, gender is a construction. And these statements, and the whole "pink pussy" hats, really isolate people who do not identify as female, or females that don't have vaginas. I think that in some ways, these slogans are kind of reactionary, and we, as feminist activists, should be actively working to include people of all gender identities into the movement.

    1. This is such a great point, and one that I need to be reminded of regularly as it's easy for us (me) to try and simplify it so much that it then becomes (unintentionally) exclusionary. Thanks for bringing this up - there is always room for growth and improvement, especially when intersectional feminism is such a broad, all-encompassing movement. I'm constantly learning things and fixing mistakes myself, so I really do appreciate your comment!

  5. I'd really like to read your post, thank you!

  6. The etsy shop link doesn't work - and I NEED to see more of those dresses. Any idea why?


    1. Not sure why it isn't working for you since it is for me, but the shop is called 'eandw'! :D Seriously so stunning!


HEY! Thanks for dropping by. xo KB
