Hi! My name is Rachel. I just pixie-d my hair yesterday (6/23/14) and I love it! It actually made my face look thinner!! Here is the picture!

I don’t know if it’ll go through and if i doesn’t I’m sorry. The url thing is being weird for me.

Hello girls!

Okay so I know I haven’t posted in over a week but I promise everyone I will get back on it. I’ve been extremely busy so I haven’t had time to go through submissions etc.

But I will get back to it tomorrow. I promise!

Stay beautiful ladies 💕

How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

“You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “you’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.

Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Teach your daughter how to cook kale.

Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.

Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.

Choppity chop!

So I’ve been growing my hair out for a loooong time, and I had reached the below length;

Not super long, but the longest it’s been for ages for me. Trouble is I get bored very easy… I’ve been flirting with the idea of short hair for a long time, but always being scared it would make my face look rounder than it already did!

A couple of nights ago, I was browsing this blog, and finally decided I was going to do it. I actually did it myself, I went downstairs, grabbed a pair of scissors and lopped off my ponytail. No more wearing my hair up all the time, no more damaged split ends, time for a fresh start. And I’m so happy with the results.

I apologise for the poor lighting, and un-madeup face, this is at about 2am when I’d finished cutting it all!

I’ve gone to chin length and adore it so far, considering getting a pixie cut (professionally of course) and think I might go for it. It can always grow out if I don’t like it right?

Thanks for giving me the guts to do this!

My mom begged me not to cut my hair and to be honest I was afraid to as well. But I’m so excited that I took the plunge. I love my new cut and I’m inspired everyday by the beautiful that submit to keep it this way.
