Yesterday we were at Emily's new family crib! We munched on macaroons, had several cups of tea & tried on bridesmaid dresses! We also have some new ideas in the making - chatting new logos, attending summer events and workshop planning for January.
We are excited about seeing our dreams unfold over time! BE. is something we have put our whole hearts and minds to. We believe in it so much and as a plus we are also connecting with others who have similar passions and who want to make a difference with us, so watch this space!
Here are the outfits we wore -
Now to introduce our next theme for October! ...
Putting your self-esteem first, over social media.
We realise that we should be starting these themes on the first of every month, but this is new to us, so it will take a while to get used to!
So, we recently have come across the effects on self - esteem that social media can have (especially in teens). We know this may sound daft coming from two bloggers who are constantly updating facebook and instagrem ;)! But stick with us on this one! Addressing the media and social media is part of the workshops we do with young girls, so we are naturally very interested in digging a little deeper into this issue. Its something that we understand, and we enjoy it, but we know the effects of it sucking you in even when you dont realise it!
We are taking the next couple of weeks to explore these issues further. Like lower confidence & comparison that can come as a result of social media use.
We also want to take an honest look at how it has effected us personally,
both positively and negatively!
We see definite positives to what Facebook, Twitter and Instagram can bring.
& we see a healthy way to use social network.
A way that allows us to celebrate who we are & to feel free to be ourselves boldly.
Not relying on the comments or number of likes that we may receive to evaluate our worth.
So keep checking back for more on this (including some interviews and videos!)
