Some of my favorite websites and blogs/bloggers to follow for motivation, recipes, health advice, and more:
"So now to the one who said, 'I hope my daughter never ends up like her,' I am learning to say, I hope you end up like me, meaning, I hope you end up like me strong. I hope you end up like me proud of who I'm becoming. I hope you don't 'end up,' I hope you keep going. And I hope you grow up knowing that the world will no longer stand for this. Victims are not victims, not some fragile, sorrowful aftermath. Victims are survivors, and survivors are going to be doing a hell of a lot more than surviving."
-Glamour's Women of the Year Issue, "Emily Doe"
“And to all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams”

"aerie is bras, undies and more for every girl. We want to make our girls feel good about who they are, inside and out. It’s time to think real. It’s time to get real. No retouching. No supermodels. Because the real you is sexy."
