I am WOMAN! Hear me roar! And better yet — see me soar! Today has some very significant meaning for me, as it is International Women’s Day! Why is this day of significance to me? Well, as a woman — I work twice as hard as most men in my field — without half the recognition!  And we women have to admit, that it’s been an uphill battle for ALL of us — in an effort to make equality — EQUAL!

I’ve been through some very serious trials over the past 2 1/2 years — and seem to be on overload when it comes to sacrifices. And in reality, I’m not looking for praise, hand out or even a pat on the back! In fact, I can do all of those things myself! But I’ve grown to love my natural born Goddess-ness, curves, talents, trials and triumphs included!

But this feature — is not to share my sob story…instead, it’s purpose is to celebrate my womanhood! All of our womanhood! To sit back, relax — and raise your champagne glasses — to your remarkable selves :) .

This International Woman’s Day, I am dedicated to highlighting the advancement in Woman Power — and my favorite achievement (for us females) is the signing of the Violence Agains Women Act — by President Barack Obama. And as a survivor of Domestic Violence — this is a huge step through the glass ceiling!

English: United States President Barack Obama ...

This is your day. This is the day of the advocates, the day of the survivors. This is your victory,” Obama said. “This victory shows that when the American people make their voices heard, Washington listens.”

And how about raising the minimum wage to $10.10 (for women). I will be following the progress of the National Women’s Law Center!

How about you lovelies — what will you being doing on this marvelous International Women’s Day?

Can you imagine — having to miss school or work — because you it’s that time of the month, when mother nature makes her routine visit? Well, every 28 days, millions of young women — including girls — miss work or school, in developing countries. That’s a whopping 50 days per year — and the reason, is because of the limited access to affordable maxi-pads.

Did you know, that:
• Premium priced imported brands cost more than a day’s wages – a pack of imported pads cost $2.25 vs. $1 in Rwanda, SHE’s pilot country.
• Sub-optimal alternatives such as cloth rags, tree bark, and even mud, fail to prevent leakage and put girls and women at risk for severe reproductive health consequences, mostly as a result of the lack of a clean and accessible water supply.

Thank goodness for SHE (Sustainable Health Enterprises) — a social venture, who’s mission is to invest in people, as well as ideas — that are often overlooked (taboo) as social and economical change.

The SHE28 campaign is its initiative to address this pressing and silent problem through innovative product design and sustainable economic opportunities for women and their communities. Take a look at its campaign video:

SHE has creatively innovated a patent-pending, low-cost and eco-friendly menstrual pad — the SHE LaunchPad — which makes an absorbent core for pads from agro-waste (banana fibers), that is free of any chemicals or super absorbent polymers. The SHE28 campaign originally launched in Rwanda in 2009. This makes it possible for girls and women — to access their much need menstrual products for only 5 cents per pad. protype-pad

SHE is coupling its LaunchPad with a sustainable business model that will create economic opportunities all across the value chain – from the banana farmers who will sell their banana fiber to SHE to the women entrepreneurs that will be equipped with business skills training and education to sell the LaunchPads in their communities. For every women-led and operated business that SHE invests in, approximately 100 jobs are created and approximately 100,000 girls and women have access to affordable menstrual pads.”

she-rwandan-coo-julian-kayibanda-at-menstrual-pad-tax-repeal-advocacy-march On the advocacy front, SHE has been successful in busting taboos about menstruation. The SHE team hit the streets of Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, in 2010 with its “Breaking the Silence on Menstruation” event. SHE, along with 10 other leading Rwandan organizations, marched down the streets in Kigali and held a public discussion with girls, women & men about how to break down menstrual taboos that serve as a barrier to girls’ education. As a result, the Rwandan government placed a new line item in the national budget for a $35,000 procurement of menstrual pads for the poorest girls.

 

Join Media Maven and the SHE28 campaign — to help SHE revolutionize access to maxi-pads!

Here’s How:
1. Give $28. Support SHE.
2. Break the silence and go viral — share the SHE28 campaign video with everyone you know!
3. Get the word out – tell your friends to support SHE on Twitter – donate your voice (link to Thunderclap)

What if I told you that there’s a chic and non-invasive way to get rid of those love handles? No, I’m not teasing or trying to pull your chains! There actually exists an FDA-cleared approach to getting your body to the ideal shape and size — that you’ve always dreamed of! Body sculpting or body contouring has rapidly increased — by popular demand — over the recent years. You can not only reduce cellulite, but rid that unwanted pregnancy fat, tighten loose skin, reduce wrinkles — and smaller circumferences, all without diet or exercise! Stats show that 92% of people — achieve circumference reduction at approximately 1.57 inches after a complete course of treatments — at Bella Contour!

Bella Contour offers a more effective, longer-lasting cellulite and circumference reduction — rooted in a more pleasant experience — than plastic surgery, liposuction, laser-based approaches and cremes. A patented technology raises consumption of fat — through charged fat ration to carbs — which is utilized for energy. This results in the body using more fat — released through treatment — as an energy source!”

Results are recorded and displayed via dedicated, advanced, built-in-software for documentation of measurements — with photos throughout the course of treatment.

The weather outside — will soon get frightful, but GIVING BACK…is oh, so delightful! As a Global Team of 200 & Mom Blogger for Social Good Ambassador — I often find myself floating on cloud 9! It brings a deep sense of satisfaction — whenever I am using my unique collective of quintessential talents and skill, to help bring awareness to the harsh and unbalanced “realities” — of the world we live in! My family and I, will indeed be celebrating #GivingTuesday, this November 27, 2012! So far — I’ve partnered with #GivingTuesday, United Way –  as well as other invaluable nonprofits — to continue my coalition to bring social change to the forefront! But I am not alone…as my lovely triad (Jazz, age 17, Starr, age 16 & Ayden, age 21 months) will join me on the front line — as we battle injustice and poverty — worldwide!

“A Rose for a Rose”
What would the world be like
If, for every rose given
Another would be received
What would the world be like
If every person who passed you by
Greeted you with a smile
What would the world be like
If we returned a wrong done to us
With forgiveness
What would the world be like
If, instead of attacking those opposed to us
We tried to understand them
And compromised instead of argued?
A wise Prophet once said
“None of you truly believes until he
loves for his brother what he loves for himself”
So let us all believe
atleast in our Humanity
And give a little
In order to receive…
By Aphrodite

 

 

 

According to a new study — fewer Americans plan to spend less money on holiday gifts, in the wake of the current economic climate — many are less likely to give a “charitable” gift as a holiday present. Last year — according to the World Vision Holiday Giving Survey, which was conducted by Harris Interactive:

About half of US adults  (51 percent) agreed they’d be “more likely” to give a charitable gift as a holiday present as a result of the current economic climate. This year that percentage dropped six points to 45 percent. This is the fifth year World Vision has commissioned Harris Interactive to conduct research on holiday charitable giving.

This survey also shows — six in ten (59 percent) say that “as a result of the current economic climate” they will spend less money on holiday presents this year. This is a huge 12% point drop from 2011 — when about seven out of ten (71 percent) stated that they’d plan to spend less money on holiday gifts. World Vision Gift Catalog Director Sarah Renusch says…

We have gone through these tough times and it’s surprising that instead of being more sympathetic, Americans are spending more on holiday gifts and giving less to charity. If there is a silver lining”, Renusch adds,” it’s that more than eight out of ten (83 percent) say they’d prefer to receive a meaningful gift that would help someone else instead of a traditional gift like clothing or electronics.”

A gift given from — for example, the World Vision Gift Catalog– can significantly improve the life of a child or family in need by providing tools and opportunities to overcome extreme poverty, while at the same time honoring your friends and loved ones,” says Renusch. For each World Vision gift, the giver can make the donation in the name of a friend, family member, or business associate. At the donor’s request, World Vision then sends special cards to those individuals, describing the gifts and their impact.

Chic Giving Ideas for #GivingTuesday:

  • World Vision U.S. Gift Catalog raised over $33 million and provided assistance to more than 825,000 people around the world in 2012 — as 67,000 goats were purchased by donors. World Vision launched the Gift Catalog in 1996. And while a goat ($75) may be World Vision’s number one seller, there are more than 100 gifts to choose from (more than 30 gifts in the catalog are $35 or less, including items like chickens, job training or fruit trees)..
  • You can also donate some time — to help with social media (FACTSocial Media Makes Americans More Aware
    One in two (49 percent) say social media affected their charitable giving
    ), outreach, advocacy — or anything your time or skills allow! Giving doesn’t have to include a monetary contribution! Every little bit counts — and makes a big difference!
  • As the many requests — continue to pour in, my family and I — continue to formulate creative campaign to help deliver our efforts to the people! My junior ambassadors are working with their high school and day care — in hopes of going from local to global! We are very excited to be partner with #GivingTuesday — even donating 20% (for the holiday season) of our income (from purchase made via Media Maven’s Diamond Diva Deals (which delivers the best deals in fashion, beauty & lifestyle – at exclusive discounts and deals. As a Beverly Johnson Brand Ambassador — I send special thank you gifts to those who purchase over $50 worth of goodies, courtesy of Beverly Johnson & myself) & Goddess Getaways & Elite Socialistas‘ Fashion & LifeSTYLE sites. My girls donate their allowance to fund causes! Our favorite charities have welcomed us with open arms, and thanks to beautiful people like Jennifer James and the amazing members of Global Team of 200 & Mom Bloggers for Social Good — we are far from alone!
  • Donate clothing, food & other valuable resources to your local Good Will, Salvation Army or nonprofit/church — which goes to families in need (like women and children, as well as men — in shelters and other impoverish conditions). FACTMost Americans Still Prefer Meaningful Gift
    83 % in 2012 – 80% in 2011 – 80% in 2010 – 76% in 2009 – 84% in 2008
    .

Since I was a little girl, I can remember my passion for helping others! Today — I am committed to living my life and career — with this goal in mind! Being a blogger/editor has allowed me to tap into many resources — that once seemed impossible before! I make it my business, to donate clothes, money and other vital supplies — to the less fortunate! I devote my time and energy — to raising awareness and fund raising, or to even volunteer my expertise to help EMPOWER, entertain and educate! As a woman — a divine makers and shapers of life — I aspire to motive and inspire! Giving doesn’t have to have an expensive price tag attached, and personally — I view negativity as an excuse for ignorance! Giving — simply means — to DO something that might mean a little to you personally, but is PRICELESS to someone else! I hope that you are encouraged to go the extra mile — for someone less fortunate than yourself, or even to cheer up a fellow friend, family member, neighbor or co-worker (your fellow human) — turning a faithless frown — into a hopeful smile!

FACT…
115 million child laborers are involved in hazardous work conditions!
61 million children are shut out of primary school!
34 million adolescent girls are not in school!
16 million children with disabilities are not in school — and 1/4 of these children are blind!

Malala Yousafzai, a 14 year old Pakistani girl –  is currently fighting for her life — since that tragic day when she was brutally shot in the head by the Taliban — because she wanted to go to school!?!?!? When she stood up for the first time since that horrible day, where she laid low by the dreadful attack — the world bared witness to her standing up for 32 million girls — around the world, who are DENIED the right to learn!

Image courtesy of the Tribune

This November 10th, the world unites to declare a global day of action for Malala and the other 32 million girls! On this day, which makes it exactly one month after the assassination attempt — Gordon Brown, UN Special Envoy for Education — will personally travel to Pakistan to deliver to President Zardari — the “million-plus petition” — in hopes of making education a reality for all Pakistani children! You can find out more and sign the petition by visiting www.iammalala.org.

Malala was prevented from going to school because Taliban ideologues favor discrimination against girls, believing girls’ education is an obscenity. As Malala recognized, discrimination takes many forms, some of which are close to exploitation. In Bangladesh, for example, girls of ten years of age are snatched out of schools to become child brides, denied their childhoods. Across the globe nearly 100,000 girls are conscripted as child soldiers, robbed of their childhoods, while millions of others are forced into child labor and either kept out of school entirely or made to sacrifice their full learning potential. Change is possible. Indeed it is not only possible — it is the only alternative. We must continue the momentum from the UN Secretary-General’s Education First initiative to show that for the first time in history, the world will no longer let education be a privilege for the few — but instead a right for all. On November 10th, we need to show our solidarity with Malala as global citizens.” — UN Special Envoy for Education, Gordon Brown.

If you would like to make a difference, you can follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Add your name to the petition so that millions around the world can unite to declare their support! “Governments across the world must know that in the 21st century we will no longer tolerate keeping children out of school.”
  • Step 2: Tell your friends and family members to lend their voice by tweeting and posting “I am Malala” on all of your social media pages/feeds! In these moments, we support Malala and show her we are all her to continue her fight! Create mobilized campaigns with local events and social media to show that “we all are Malala!”

 

English: Gordon Brown The last day of 2015 is our deadline to ensure that all children are in school. The campaign has been renewed because of the public outcry at what happened to Malala. And now the campaign can only be realized with your action. Malala may lie in hospital and she may have been silenced for now — but millions who now carry her message can find in the run up to Malala Day on November 10th an opportunity to speak for her and ensure that action on girls’ rights and children’s education is no longer delayed.” — Gordon Brown.

My favorite get “sexy” goddess — Sheila Kelly — founder, author and Hollywood actress — is set to launch a new provocative video campaign “Redefining Sexy: Believe in Your Beauty” — to help change the way women approach “sexy” and “beauty.” Real women, true stories –  adorn the video, which features “Cancer Warrior” Diana Schlobohm — a breast cancer warrior…who lost both her breast to cancer. However, Schlobohm still maintains her knowledge that she is a sexy and beautiful woman. This raw and chicly gritty video — was shot 6 days post-op…challenges viewers to answer the following: “Are cancer survivors sexy?”

Since it’s debut, the video has gone viral — with celebs like Eva Longoria, Rita Wilson, Lana Parrilla, and Apolo Ohno asking their Twitter and Facebook followers to “Believe in your Beauty’ and “Embrace your Beautiful, Powerful Self!”

Sheila Kelley stirred up pre-conceived notions about “stripping” when she debuted her striptease inspired workout, S Factor, on the Oprah show in 2003.  There are now seven S Factor fitness studios across the nation and Kelley is widely regarded as the worldwide originator of pole dance fitness.  Her book The S Factor: Strip Workouts for Every Woman, not only thought outside the box, it smashed it.  The Redefining Sexy: Believe in Your Beauty campaign will do the same.

I have had the pleasure of reviewing the S Factor Soulfully Sexy Series…and ladies and gents, I have to say — Sheila Kelley is the ultimate go-to for sensual sex appeal. With class and divine style, her videos connect you to your inner goddess! S Factor has become my newest addiction (I am a total yoga and fitness fanatic). My darling boyfriend loves to sit and watch me get sexy and fit ;) .  Stay chic and tuned as the review is coming soon!!!

Check out this amazing video — of a truly sexy and beautiful survivor!!! Sit back, relax and enjoy — as the music sets the mood for an intimate rendezvous with enjoyment — that’s PG-13!

My journey — to M.POWER.ment — was not always an easy road! I’ve fought countless battles with myself — as I struggled to believe in myself — as others did! I couldn’t see — what they saw — in me!

Whenever I am asked — why I’m so passionate about causes that affect women & children — I simply reply, “I just am.” But then I realized — someone has too! As a global ambassador — I am very concerned — six out of ten girls — will stop doing the things they love, because they feel bad about their looks!  I myself — can see these tendencies in my precious daughters! I have the power — to make a difference in a young girl’s life — boosting her self-esteem.  As a mom and mentor — I am equipped with the ability to help young girls — develop positive relationships — with beauty! And it all starts with a conversation or in my household — a talk!

These inspiring convos — can take place daily — as you spend time with your little lady, walking to school, listening to their have songs in the car, or watching TV together! My favorite time — is as we walk every evening or while we’re shopping. These priceless moments of shared laughter and bonding — can make a huge impact — helping your mini you to reach her full potential.

Takie a moment — to connect to her to herself — in beauty, confidence and self-esteem. Keep it honesty. These easy steps should easy the process:
1. Ask — ask her about her relationship with beauty. Everyone comes to their own belief about their beauty values differently!

  • What does beauty mean to you?
  • What makes you feel most beautiful?
  • Do you feel beauty is a big source of pressure — amongst your friends?
  • Has your beliefs about beauty — ever stopped you from doing something you love?
  • Do you have any questions about beauty — or  have something to share?

2. Share — instead of giving her advice or telling her what to do — pay attention to her responses, and share some of your own — speaking openly and honestly! Sometimes — it’s okay to leave the expert at work — and just be mom…

Regrain from saying “she I was your age” — as girls typically turn off at that comment. Instead, connect to her emotionally and intellectually — letting her know if you have any solutions that worked for you.

3. Listen — taking in her responses. Pay attention to her reaction to your comments — asking more questions if necessary — but don’t bombard her! Allow her space to talk about possible solutions. Sometimes — she will only need to talk it out…as she needs to feel safe, listened to and connected with!

4. Act — follow the conversation with some actions, putting together follow up ideas — sparked by the conversation, making sure:
She wants to talk to you (her mom/mentor) or friends about her relationship with beauty
How does she view the images in the media?
Does she want to write an email or blog post (like my Jr. Elite Socialistas — who love working with mommy) about her feelings?

Dove® research shows that it is still important for us to address girls’ anxiety about looks, as there is a universal increase in beauty pressure and a decrease in girls’ confidence as they grow older. Key findings from our latest research include:

• Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful (up from 2% in 2004)
• Only 11% of girls globally are comfortable using the word beautiful to describe themselves
• 72% of girls feel tremendous pressure to be beautiful
• 80% of women agree that every woman has something about her that is beautiful but do not see their own beauty
• More than half (54%) of women globally agree that when it comes to how they look, they are their own worst beauty critic
