Morning!! Frankly starting my day with a eggy email from someone is not my idea of a pleasant start. But once again, those who seek to get their way via manipulation, guilt trips and talking down get my attitude of zero tolerance. I have a choice to allow people to treat me with disrespect or I come down on it like a ton of bricks and squash it immediately leaving no doubt that I will not be mugged off and that my life is exactly that, MY LIFE!! Absolutely MINE 💯..... i have zero ability to take on board selfish-expectation of others with no consideration for the impact upon what this might also mean for me. Simply to those who bully 'bye bye.' 👋🏽#beinghuman#noonesfool#fighter#fearlessfemale#strongfemale#autonomy
Fearless Female Friday! Shoutout to my little sister for following her dreams! I know I don't say it as often as I should, but you are nothing short of amazing, sister! ❤️ She recently just started as a student teacher working with her very own class of 1st graders! She is pursuing her BA and Credentials at the same time, she is a continuous Dean's List & Honor Roll recipient, this is her 4th year as an R.A., and she will soon be pursuing her Master's degree as well! She is such a strong and important presence on campus among her advisors and peers, as well as in her community as she continues to stand up for Justice, Education & Equal Rights for ALL, including WOMEN and people of color! Sorry folks, she's also engaged 💍😉To say I am proud just doesn't even begin to cover it! We hardly ever get to see you, but I know it's worth it! Keep kicking ass, Sis! I love you 💕 #FFF#fearlessfemale#neverthelessshepersisted#badass#chingona#advocate#highereducation#keepgoing#chasingdreams#ndnu#feminist#womenofcolor#thatsmysister#sister
Last night this sweet girl was my 2nd model in my new studio. She's pretty much a show-stopper and I'm so excited to have been able to give her something to be excited about after all she's been through. 😘
husband & wife duo @aerialistinthewild & @devonbbarker travel the world, and combine the "beauty of the outdoors with the beauty of the human spirit" we are thrilled to have these two as members - make sure to check out the incredible adventures these two have had!
So, this is me, the owner and creator of @survivingsocietyclothing. My husband took these photos whilst I was in hospital (nearly two years ago) recovering from surgery which saved my life. I had sepsis as a result of post-birth complications. I am very lucky to be alive as my symptoms and illness were missed until it was too late - I was at home with my newborn settling her to sleep when I collapsed in a heap to the floor and started shaking as though I was fitting. I haemorrhaged severely and couldn't speak. These photos represent so much more than me being ill and depressed in a hospital bed. This is what has driven me to keep striving for more and to be the best that I can be, and to keep on living for my family. I am a survivor, a sepsis survivor, which means a lot to me. Today is World Sepsis Day whereby supporters around the globe are trying to raise awareness of this condition. The @uksepsistrust provides a wealth of information on what it is and how to help someone you suspect may have sepsis. I am in awe of this charity along with @bloodynorapam, another clothing company, who donate a percentage of their profits to the charity. PLEASE help raise #sepsisawareness by sharing anything you have learned.
This weekend, I am actually staying in London. Only three more weeks until we move back to the States. Figured I would finally check out Canary Wharf and Greenwich Park. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. Anyone have any suggestions on things to see that aren't overly crowded on the weekends? Until now, I'm catching up on my photos from this summer's adventures. #Croatia
