Invisible Women

Yassss! Sum City gets it right!

SUM City

One of the biggest stories to captivate entertainment headlines this year has been the emergence of Lupita Nyong’o. Her Oscar winning performance as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave catapulted her to the forefront of the public eye. Once there, she has developed almost a second career as the Queen of the Red Carpet, appearing at film festivals looking flawless in stunning gowns that designers are falling over themselves to dress her in. This summer she landed the cover of People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful issue. Her Oscar acceptance speech about what defines beauty sparked a wave of affirmation from women around the world who fight daily to be seen as attractive and desirable within themselves when bombarded constantly with a narrow standard of beauty. Lupita is the most recent black female star to explode into pop culture but obviously she isn’t the only one. From Michele Obama to Olivia…

Your holiday season just isn't complete without getting sick from the disgusting germs of EVERYWHERE or that blasted flu shot.

Jealousy_Anti Feminist

But, seriously though. I’m talking about that pure, unadulterated jealousy. Not that, “Oh my gosh. S/he is so rich! I am so jealous!” When you admit it out loud like that, it’s not malicious. That cold and selfish jealousy I’m referring to, consists of ill-willed feelings and the celebration of other peoples’ failures. It’s dark and we shouldn’t allow ourselves to be overpowered by it.

I CAN NOT stand when women have a strong dislike or even hatred for other women, just because she’s another “pretty woman”. When I see how mean women are to each other, I just want to scream.

What is that? Why is that?
That SH*T feeds into that catty female stereotype.
It’s not just a woman thing. Men are guilty of it as well.

So you’re jealous of your co-worker’s relationship with the boss. It’s understandable, especially if your boss plays favorites. BUT don’t be PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE. In the past, I have been guilty of such feelings and passive-aggressive behavior but I learned that it got me ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE.

I’m tired of this mean-spirited behavior. Let’s all just love one another! Let’s all support the dreams and desires of others! Please? 😦

For Nostalgia’s Sake. Europe – Take Me Back!!

Fall Season is almost at it’s end. This year, Mother Nature has been awfully kind to New England. THANK GAWD! I don’t do well with severe cold and I hate driving in snow conditions. The temperature has stayed within the 60s this past week. But…

Winter is Coming. – Game of Thrones

Today’s weather actually required a warm jacket. It made me think of a place I visited not so long ago, which had THE perfect weather – Paris, France. I traveled to Paris last summer with my friend and her parents. It was ABSOLUTELY gorgeous! I never wanted to leave. Since I am strolling down memory lane I figured I would post some photos.

We also visited Rome, Italy. But I’ll share those pictures with you guys in the next post. 🙂

ENJOY!
