Be You – #BeFullyYou

I really liked this message from Hips & Curves about be appreciating and loving yourself for who YOU are. One of the women in my Sociology Senior Project course is studying social media and people that use filters to change what they show the world.

I am guilty of using filters – most people that use social media use it. However, I am not afraid to express myself when I am not feeling or looking “perfect”. So remember – be you. BE FULLY YOU

Share the Luv with Luv Michael’s Originola Granola

This post is a review of Luv Michael’s Originola Granola. I was given a free sample of their granola in exchange for my honest review. All comments are my own.

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen me post about enjoying some Originola Granola from Luv Michael. I initially was just going to try a couple bites but I ended up eating nearly half the package because it was good – I write more about that below.

Luv Michael’s Mission
Luv Michael’s mission is to provide meaningful vocational training for the autistic population and to produce exceptional gluten-free and natural products.

Luv Michael educates, trains and employs individuals with autism. Every bag of Luv Michael Originola Granola is hand mixed in small batches and packed with LUV by individuals with autism.

Luv That!
Most of you know I am doing a double concentration in Psychology and Sociology and I am always excited about people and companies that are doing good for others. Especially when it comes to people that may be disabled, disadvantaged and so on. I love that Luv Michael gives opportunities to the Autistic Community. It really is a beautiful thing.

Back to the granola…

Let me just tell you that this granola was the most delicious granola that I have ever had in my life – and trust me – I have tried a lot of granola. I love granola. I eat it plain, I eat it mixed in yogurt, I eat it with milk and so on. This granola was goooooooooood.

I tried Luv Michael’s Originola Granola dry and straight out of the package. It was crunchy – but chewy, full of flavor and just sweet enough to make me feel like I was indulging on a sweet treat. I loved the cranberries and raisins mixed with the oats and the lovely hint of maple and vanilla. I almost forgot I was eating granola and thought I was eating a cookie.

I would buy this granola by the pounds and give it away as gifts to friends and family members as well. That is how much I enjoyed this granola. If you love granola like I love granola I promise you that you will not only enjoy it – you will come back for more again and again.

Honoring Women

QuestionStart a conversation on your blog. Choose one topic and open it up for discussion on your blog like a salon.

So… I have noticed that Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day has ruffled some feathers. All over Twitter and the interwebs people (mostly men) are complaining about why there needs to be any day or *gasp* a month that honors women in any way.

So I ask you… Why do you think people have a problem with the idea of honoring women?

Video: Jackson Katz On Violence Against Women

It is the weekend so for NaBloPoMo that means free writing. I thought instead I would share a TEDx video about violence against women.

I first heard of Jackson Katz when I was doing research for a paper I was writing for a Women’s Studies course about The Patriarchal Roots of Violence Towards Women and at the time it was refreshing to hear a man speak about these types of issues. He speaks on male violence and not just towards women. Take a listen and see what he has to say. (more…)
