🚀 Twirling onto Tuesday 🚀 . . . . 💫💫Our tag line is all about #powerofthetwirl 💫💫 . . .
I wanted to create a dress 👗 with movement✨, that was fun to wear, comfortable and practical for kids to kneel and run in. Oh and with pockets...love a pocket.
I’m a mum with a dream☁️ - I’m also one running very late for the school run! Eek! Happy Tuesday everyone - only a few more days until Friday!! Keep twirling til then! ⚡️⚡️⚡️ . . .
Du kan vara modig eller rädd, det är upptill dig.
Du kan vara vänlig eller fientlig, du väljer.
Du kan vara nyfiken eller inskränkt, det är ditt beslut.
Du kan vara generös eller sniken, valet är ditt!
Livet drabbar oss alla på olika sätt och räkmacka är det ganska få som får. Vad som händer kan du inte styra men hur du bemöter det, där har du alla möjligheter att påverka. Lätt är det inte, att vända de negativa tankarna. Men det är möjligt!
Hur vill du att ditt liv ska kännas, hur vill du bemöta människor i din omvärld? Med kärlek och nyfikenhet eller med illvilja och missunnsamhet? Det är du som bestämmer! Ett leende, en nyfiken blick, en värmande klapp på axeln. Vad kan du ge till nån annan just idag?
Reposted from @iamthatgirl - Only when we are confident in who we are and have nothing to prove to anyone, can we truly champion other women. Because real women fix each others crowns. And badass women make sure to hook their sisters up when no one is looking. #repost
“Come on keep it together. Keep smiling. Everything is fine, it’s fine. It’s totally fine. Sure you feel like you’re on the brink of collapsing, your mind won’t stop, you’re not sleeping, you don’t know what the heck any of this is for, what’s the point? But sure... I’m fine.” - my mind •
It’s okay not to be okay. Let yourself unravel and lose your sh*%. It’s honesty more exhausting to try and keep everything so buttoned up.
Come join me this Saturday @solsistersorg Nourish the Sol conference. I’ll be talking more about self-care there.
Here’s to a messy Monday!
RedBloom in real life guest feature with Vanessa 💜 Besides being a long-time guest, we’ve been lucky to host Vanessa's @womencents money club classes and boost our financial knowledge! 💰⠀
Q&A with Vanessa:⠀
𝙏𝙚𝙡𝙡 𝙪𝙨 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙛 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙙𝙤:⠀
“I am a Mom, wife, business owner. I am the Founder of @Womencents Inc., a financial education and coaching company focused on helping women build their financial knowledge and confidence. My entire business career has been in the field of finance. I started my career as an Investment Banker prior to choosing to be a stay-at-home Mom with my two daughters and then ultimately starting Womencents.”⠀

“Beauty is being comfortable with yourself. Knowing what makes you feel your best and choosing that.”⠀

“I am committed to empowering women through building their financial knowledge and confidence. I believe that if women have a sense of power and control over their finances and have a strategy that fits with their own goals and priorities, they will live an awesome life that is right for them. I have an ability to support others through compassion and understanding while also motivating them to take action and move themselves forward.”⠀
𝙃𝙤𝙬 𝙙𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙪𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙡𝙤𝙤𝙢?⠀
“I am a life-long learner. I love meeting new people and understanding something new about them, maybe a unique experience or perspective that makes me think. I love to read and study to build knowledge around personal development, personal finances and the world around us. We go through different stages in our lives and while they are all related and we are still ultimately the same person, we also grow and evolve which is exciting and, in some ways, gives us a whole new experience. Life is about experiences and I am looking to have as many of those as possible.”⠀
Thanks Vanessa for sharing your #RedBloomInRealLife ❤️⠀

"Hold," from my stint in clay earlier this year. One day, I will photograph my miscellaneous works, scan my sketchbooks, finish a bunch of drawings, update my website, etc etc etc. But till then, here's one if the clay vessels I made earlier this year that I just uncovered from my storage unit! Hiiii, old friend! 👾 .
Image description: multiple photos of a clay vessel. Two long pairs of arm wrap around the vessel, holding each other, with saggy breasts on the inside, alluding to two women. The vessel is wide and short and tinted a speckly seafoam that is hard to capture in photographs.
Shamini Rajarethnam @shamini_r, CEO of luxury Australian skincare brand Rationale @rationale, spoke to a room of FW Members at Social Club in Melbourne last week. On being prepared to fail she said "If I mess it up royally, if I get fired, that's no so bad. I'm not dead, I can get a job somewhere else. Best case scenario, I pull this off, I learn a lot, I provide opportunities for myself, and then you land somewhere in the middle," and that the fear of what could happen sometimes stops us from trying something else.
THIS 👏IS 👏ROOTED 👏IN 👏LIKEABILITY👏 BIAS.👏
We expect men to assert themselves and promote their own accomplishments. But we often have a negative reaction when women do the same thing. This puts women candidates in a difficult spot. If they tout their achievements, it can hurt their chances of being hired. If they don’t, their achievements might be overlooked.
What can YOU do to fight bias? 1️⃣. Ask your colleague to explore his/her thinking: “That’s interesting. Do you think you’d have that reaction if a man did the same thing?” 2️⃣. You can also reframe what happened: “I noticed that too, but I don’t see it as bragging. I just thought she was talking confidently about her talents.” 3️⃣. It’s also worth pointing out that
a job interview is exactly the place to talk about your strengths.
