This week Money Monday is dedicated to a short (well, a little over 4 minutes long) video from Suze Orman. If you are not familiar with her, I suggest you check her out. She gives fantastic financial advice that covers a very wide range of topics that apply to your life at some point in your journey.
I’m so glad this is being printed in a major magazine as Sports Illustrated. I plan on buying the magazine as a keepsake. I’m not concerned that she’s not being featured by SI because they could have rejected the ad. They could have told the company that she is not “attractive” and that she “does not fit their standards” or something similar that a lot of magazines already say when presented with similar material. The presence of “no” and “you are not good enough” is strong in this industry already – but this time they said yes. 😀
Ashley Graham looks fantastic and is wearing a bikini. We need more models like her on magazine covers, advertisements, TV, film, and so on. Beauty comes in many more forms than what is shoved down our throats. I hope this is the first of many changes!
This weeks Thankful Thursday is an appreciation I have for Michelle Obama(Don’t worry, this won’t get political). You don’t have to agree with her politics or who she is married to, but it’s important to recognize strong, intelligent women who aren’t the “standard” that is all over the media. It’s important to every little girl growing up to not only see this but also let them know they too can get an education and aspire to be something great – no matter what that great thing is because they are just as special.
I hope you have a beautiful Thursday!
We are no strangers this time of year to being BFF with a box of tissues or some kind of cough medicine cocktail. Whether you got a flu shot or not, there is still a chance you may get some kind of cold or worse – especially if you work with kids, have kids, or leave your house ever. We all know it’s best to avoid human contact when you are sick, and rest up, but what are ways we can curb catching a bad cold?
I hope you are all fairing well and staying warm through this winter season. This weeks entry is a favorite in my house. My son affectionately calls it, “Chip and Dip” but it’s a basic filling for any kind of taco shell, burrito, tortilla chips – whatever you want. It can be made with any protein base and works all year round.
