(Sorry for going M.I.A again…did you all miss me? of course you did – and yes I stole the title from Zoella – sue me.)
So as some of you may know, yesterday was International Woman’s Day!
In honour of that, I would just like to say a few things.
Women. Fucking. Rule.
Honestly, the amount of shit that we all have to go through (yes – guys have their own shit too I’m not oblivious) and pain that we all experience is mind-blowing but look at us all now! Living life and making a change for the better.
I love hearing about all the wonderful things that are happening in the world right now that are being out in place to benefit women and young girls and it is honestly so inspiring to have such great role models to look up to.
Now that I’m in the spirit of things, I’d like to give you guys a list of some of the females in my life/that I know, of that are currently killing the game and deserve a massive fucking shout out!
Crystal Breeze –
She went though a MAJOR weight loss journey AND had to go through a shit tonne of hate. I’m so proud that she’s stayed strong and consistent and on her way to achieving her next goal! Weight is probably one of the most sensitive topics that a girl has on her mind and the fact that she did it all in the public eye really amazes and inspires me to not give in the people bringing you down and to just do what makes you happy! Plus her makeup is always bomb so that’s a plus.
Oprah Winfrey –
How the fuck could anyone forget about Oprah? I mean she is the LITERAL definition of inspiring. Her life has been one of the saddest that I’ve ever heard of but the way she turned her life around is one of the greatest stories ever told. She is one of the bravest, most courageous woman that I’ve had the pleasure of living in the same time as.
Ellen DeGeneres –
I adore Ellen. She is one of the purest souls out there with the beast sense of humour. It takes a lot to be an LGBT activist and the fact that she does it with such pride warms my heart because you can tell that it clearly means a lot to her – I respect woman who put passion into their work and she is definitely one of them.
Meghan Rienks –
I LOVE Megan. Down to her dirty sense of humour to her dirty baking videos. I love the fact that she shares her struggles with anxiety and depression and REALLY keeps it real with us. I also love the fact that she honestly does not give two fucks of what people think about her. I also LOVE her podcast “Don’t Blame Me” where she gives advice to the people that call in – it’s fucking hilarious. Plus did I mention that she’s aesthetic as fuck?
Okay so that’s it for that section – I just wanna say that there is a TONNE more people out there that I absolutely adore but my fingers are tired and I’m not about to waste all of my storage finding pictures of them…oops.
Anyway, before I end this post I wanna let you guys know some of the things that only women can do – and do ever so delicately may I add –
- Bleed what feels like 10 BILLION gallons of blood a month (could be a SLIGHT over-estimation)
- Get pregnant and give birth – which apparently feels like all the bones in your body breaking all at once…yeah I might have second thoughts about that one.
- Deal with the struggle of having to wear a bra (don’t even get me STARTED on this one)
- Deal with you’re hair tangling to literally EVERYTHING in sight
- Having your hairbands breaking every fucking time you try and tie your hair
- Handle every single emotion run through your head and still pretend to be happy (I’ve mastered this one)
Well that’s gonna be it for this blog post. I hope you all had a great international womans day and I’ll see you soon with another blog post!
