Too often I hear people (mostly girls) saying they can’t / nor want to go to the beach because they “aren’t ready yet” because they “don’t have a beach body”.
It makes me so sad to see that so many women reject wearing a swimsuit -or simply going to the beach- because they wouldn’t feel comfortable in that situation. As if they weren’t good “enough” for that cute bikini they love, just because of how they look.
Well, let me tell you one secret: you only need a beach and a body to get a beach body. That’s it, and whoever tells you otherwise is toxicly contributing to body shaming. This has to stop.
Absolutely EVERYONE has the right to feel good in their own bodies and enjoy the beach on a hot Summer day. We shouldn’t say “no” to any piece of clothing just because of how we look. Clothing is for everyone!
We’ve been told we can’t wear certain pieces of clothing if we have a certain look, weight, height or age because it wouldn’t be socially accepted. And this is totally fake. Let’s embrace ourselves and love our bodies as they are, with their flaws and imperfections, because that is what makes us unique!
It’s been a few months since I started making money on my Etsy shop, so I thought it was about time to share my tips and tricks with you after this interesting experience.
This is the story about how I made $600 on Etsy (after a strong “trial and error” game):
I remember when I started at university the worst part was to move away from home.
Getting away from everything that was familiar to me and going to live in a big city was a bit scary. But anyway, I still felt excited and curious about new people and new beginnings.
After two years in college, I’ve finally made it to set up a list with the things that make my life sooo much easier as a college student. I highly recommend them to new college students but also to all those students who struggle to keep their life together (you’re not alone).
I feel like 2017 was a good year in terms of reading.
It was also a year of growth and lots of new experiences (both good and bad, but mostly bad), so I felt like I needed some help -or at least some answers-. Something to show me what path I should follow from there on.
As a bookworm that I am, I recurred to books.
PS: never underestimate the power of a good book.
Us, college students, have a really bad reputation when it comes to eating habits.
Basically, we’re not famous for having the healthiest diets.
Let me tell you one thing: it is possible to eat healthy when you are a college student.
“I don’t have enough time to cook” is something we’ve all said at some point of your lives. But it’s 2018! This is the era of fitness and veganism, so that’s not an excuse anymore.
You can eat well and even SAVE time! There are tons of easy and healthy recipes out there, just one click away from you.
When I started college I made the promise to myself to never eat “bad” again, or at least try to eat as healthy as possible.
This doesn’t mean I haven’t eat pizza in two years. OF COURSE I had (pizza is queen), but not on a daily basis. I mean, you can treat yourself occasionally (treating yourself is a healthy habit too) and still eat well.
Here are some of the tips that work for me to stay healthy while attending college:
To be honest, I don’t consider myself a big fan of Christmas gift buying. I like to receive hugs more than gifts, but I also really like to help my readers find the perfect gift for those who love. For that sake, I created my first gift guide ever: 10 things under 20$.
I’ve made a selection of those cute things you can put in your Christmas stockings or under the tree for a really low price, and they’re all from Amazon so you can easily find them online.
In my case, as a college student, I can’t afford to get really pricey gifts for my friends and family, so I always look for this kind of details. I even have some of the things I show you on the guide, so I can give you a real opinion on them. I think the intention is what really matters. You don’t have to spend thousands on something to make someone happy or let them know how you love them.
