Weekly Warrior Queen Links #4


I've felt a bit more empowered this week than usual. Maybe it's a combination of knowing what is going to happen with my mom and feeling more in control of my anxiety (because just having a plan makes me feel better).

This week's links are very blog-heavy, which makes me super happy!! I can't wait to hear what you think about them.

Are you a believer or a skeptic? Elizabeth at October June talks about how at the very least, you should believe in yourself.

I just love the #DontTrySoHard link up over at Treasure Tromp. I met Nicole at a Bloggers Giving Back event and she is absolutely the sweetest. This link up is perfect for anyone who is feeling a little down on themselves.

Everyone seriously needs to go read this blog post about telling our stories and follow Britt immediately. She's new to the blog world and totally going places, and I can't wait to see where life takes her. Oh, and on a personal note, I've known her for ten years...and her son is the cutest thing ever.

What is the perfect beauty ideal? The world may never know.

If you're looking for some new cool online magazines The LaLa went live this week and I'm happy to be a part of Global Young Executive

While I'm not a mom of a pre-teen yet, these 4 Ways To Help Your Pre-Teen Daughter to Navigate Attention to Her New Body really has me thinking of ways that I can embrace this as a teacher, and a role model to other young girls. (And boys, I'm really on a mission to show my brother in laws how to respect girls)

I was reading Worship & Swag the other day and she wrote about Get U.G.L.Y., a book being unconditionally grateful looking like you. If you subscribe to the author's blog, you can get the book for free!

This is an amazing BuzzFeed article on advocating for breastfeeding. What are your thoughts?

If you don't know the definition of feminism, I challenge you to look it up. Either way, why should it matter to you if someone is a feminist? I love this blog post.

  2. Great collection, particularly the one about helping preteens deal with body attention. Girls have it rough these days. I can't imagine growing up in this world.

  3. I love the idea of beauty being so relative. It seriously is and means different things to different people!

  4. I just read Britt's blog and it's so exciting that she's decided to share her bottled up stories to the world. I feel like I have quite a few bottled up as well.. but I have such a hard time figuring out where they fit in on my blog. :/

  5. Ugh the breastfeeding article really struck a chord with me. I totally agree with it and it's something that makes me so, so sad about our culture.

  8. Hi Esther! Thank you so much for looking at my blog! I understand exactly what you mean and that is ONE of the many, many reasons why I created Pain to Paper. I am still in the beginning stages of perfecting my blog/site but I am working on adding a forum and an area to submit or share a story :) xo

    I love, love, love this post. I'm so glad that there are more and more people on the web empowering us to love who we are and what we look like rather than to trying to force us into some crazy ideal. And have you seen the cats against feminism site? Too funny...:)
