"Sensuality is beautiful, and dominance and submission in the right context is a passionate art. A muse which ignites the flame of femininity, which enraptures both partners in complete euphoria, magnifying both the masculine and the feminine in one tantalizing unit."

Sai Marie Johnson (via me-iz-batman)

25 Things Every Woman Should Have By The Time She Turns 25

1. Enough confidence to no longer feel the need to justify what she eats, who she dates or what she wears, not only to other people, but to herself.
2. The goal of a bank account with a few months’ living expenses in it, if she doesn’t have that already. Just in case.
3. Only the phone numbers, Facebook friends, weekend plans, and roommates she actually wants.
4. A best friend who is like a sister.
5. A space of her own.
6. A good idea of what she needs in a romantic relationship, not just what she wants, or what she thinks she needs, and the willingness to explore different people and other ideas to find what exactly that is.
7. A closet of what she considers to be her “staples,” and among these things, something to wear to an interview, funeral, wedding, impromptu Friday night drink at a casual bar and dream date if ever someone were to call out of the blue.
8. The tact and grace to ask for a raise, a promotion, a change in a relationship or a date with someone she’s into.
9. The faith that she deserves those things.
10. A favorite coffee order, go-to restaurant for when friends visit from out of town, hairstyle that takes less than five minutes in the morning, “thank you” cards in her desk drawer, the print copy of her favorite book, and bedding that she is proud to show off.
11. A hobby that has nothing to do with drinking, shopping or somebody else.
12. The recipes for a number of easy meals memorized.
13. The desire and discipline to actually cook for herself. (Just herself.)
14. A trip she tells awesome stories about and a trip she has awesome plans for.
15. A sense that she’s let go of resenting other women for what they do or don’t have over her.
16. Enough of a healthy relationship with her body that her contentment no longer hinges on comparison, or what her partner would think.
17. At least one date in her memory with the kind of partner who wouldn’t care about those things anyway.
18. Forgiveness if she’s dated men who haven’t quite matured as quickly as women tend to in their early 20s.
19. The knowledge of what she wants in bed and the confidence to ask for it without feeling uncomfortable.
20. A drill, a non-stick pan, a credit card line nobody else has access to, a bra that she was measured for at the store and working knowledge of how to change a tire, unclog a pipe, make an investment and find shoes on the extra 40% rack.
21. A relationship with her mother, even if it’s the decision that their relationship will be at least functioning, if not familial.
22. A passport, a sturdy piece of luggage, and the ability to pack the essentials at a moment’s notice should she be offered the chance to get away for a weekend, a week, or a whole new life.
23. The following emergency kit: Tylenol/Advil, eyedrops, a tampon, hand sanitizer, a fresh pair of underwear, a travel sized toothbrush, hydrocolloid bandages for blisters, $20 cash, a condom, and Plan B.
24. Forgiveness for who she was.
25. An idea of who she wants to be.

A woman is a woman is a woman.
Curvy or skinny. Don’t put down other women by saying “this is what a real women looks like”

It goes against everything we are trying to do with promoting a healthy body image.

We are all REAL women no matter what our size.

Let’s come together and unite in loving our bodies as they are and let’s support EVERY woman. We are all different, we all have different body frames. Beauty is not a dress size or a jean size. We are ALL beautiful, REAL women!


"are you anorexic!?" - Skinny Shaming ©
For a very long time, I was confident in my size and shape. I thought that I was lucky to be so small and have as fast of a metabolism as I did. But once girls around me started going through puberty and developing curves I started hating how “un-womanly” my body was. I was surrounded by beautiful curvaceous girls whom boys liked and to me, I still looked like “a little boy”. It was heart-breaking to look in the mirror for an extremely long time because of this. I would be the victim of horrible jokes and name calling by boys, even my own friends. So, if anyone is going through what I went through please remember you aren’t alone. Millions of women are going through the exact same thing. You are absolutely beautiful the way you are! You are no less womanly than someone with big boobs and wide hips, I promise! Do not let boys let you believe that you are less worthy of their time because your lack of curves doesn’t give them a boner because girl, you are worth so much more than them. Your bones do not define you, please remember that.

Real women have crooked teeth. Real women have that one longish toe.

Real women have curvature of the spine and spend their life in a wheelchair.

Real women…

This mentality is a huge part of where my self confidence comes from. We are all amazing individuals, unique in every way. We face our own struggles, trials and triumphs in all we do. It is not fair to either party to compare. 

I find the world today tends to pit woman against woman. She wore it better. She did it better. She looked better. She is better. Etc. We don’t have to “compete” against others…there really is no competition because we are different. Instead of looking at someone and comparing your progress of any sort to theirs, try and look at it for the singular journey it is. Use someone else as your inspiration. Be thankful that you have been able to use their own journey in such a way and beat the compete mentality. 

Instead of resentment, be inspired. Instead of comparison, be empowered to do better. Congratulate others instead of sending hate. Be gracious and supportive and others will be so for you,
