Num mundo cada vez mais consumista ter consciência na hora de comprar pode fazer muita diferença. Quantas coisas compramos por impulso e ficam entulhadas na nossa casa tirando espaço do que realmente precisamos e usamos? 🤔❤😙
New art! Process of the Original Canvas pieces. It starts with the colored pencil on black paper “word swirl” drawings. All words, hand-lettered typography, make up the intricate design >> then it’s printed on canvas and stretched >> now it’s a fresh canvas for painting. I mix all paints directly on the canvas creating unique, multi-layer original art. #abstracttypography#abstractart#mixedmedia#spellboundswirls
So last fall, when the days were short and the sun came up around 7am, I had the bright idea to change my alarm tone to birds chirping. It’ll be so charming, I thought. Like being Cinderella. And so much better than being blasted awake by a normal alarm that makes you feel as though you are under attack. So I set my alarm tone to bird and have awoken every morning since to the pleasant sounds of chirping. The days are getting longer now. And warmer. And last night we slept with the window open. Do you know what time birds start chirping in Northern Germany at the end of May? I do. Because I’ve trained my brain to wake up at the sound of little birds chirping. It’s 4am. So basically I’ve been awake for like 84 years now. Anyway, please enjoy a picture of flamingos in the summer at the Paris zoo. ⠀⠀

Have you heard of @ladiesgetpaid ? If not, get away from this post for a second to go stalk them. Done? Good. Now you see why I completely, totally, and fully support their cause. Our cause.
I have been working in restaurants for the past ten years. I worked my way up from dishwasher at 14 to the youngest Assistant General Manager at one of the most well-known restaurants in NYC. After a year and a half of being with the company and 8 months of working as an AGM, I asked for an evaluation and a raise. I was doing work well above my pay-grade, and was incredibly enthusiastic about other employment opportunities in corporate. I knew a male counterpart at another location was making $5k more than me. I knew another male manager was offered $2k more than me for his initial offer. And I decided that I needed to get paid what I was worth. After reading @ladiesgetpaid newsletter and reading about other strong women I asked for the raise. And got brutally rejected. The restaurant world is a man’s world. Hell, the WORLD is a man’s world.
We need organizations like @ladiesgetpaid. We need leaders, managers, owners, and lady boss CEOs to stand up for what they believe in and encourage others to stand up and do the same. We need to have an open dialogue between women WITHOUT being interrupted or mansplained
I didn’t intend for this to be such a long post today, but hell im glad it is. To read more about this topic and my personal struggle to get noticed as a young woman, you can click the link in my bio for a new blog post💖 Thank you for your endless support. Go kick some ass ladies
On Wellness Wednesday I want to give a huge shout out to Heather Keske @ "The Chang".💜💚🤩 It's an organic hair salon that uses OWay organic hair products with every step of the hair process! Included are my before and after pictures!
Why is this so important? Because before breakfast women are putting 300 chemicals on or in their body.....that is just before breakfast!!!🍳🍌 These are hormone disruptors and chemicals that cause the big "C"...Cancer! When we use chemical free products from head to toe (in this case hair😉) we are doing our body a favor and we might just be adding some days into our life span😊🤩😍 #knowbetterdobetter#chemicalfreeliving#chemicalfreehair#ilovecolor
