I’ve got an eclectic mix this month, but there is a woman-centric theme pervading. Enjoy!

I’m not the best appreciator of abstract art, but I love the idea behind this gallery and the shared pieces are thought provoking and utterly female.

One, I love makeup. Two, I wax and shave. Three, I do all of that for me. Yes, I initially started performing those rituals because I felt compelled to conform to the standards pushed on me. Now though? It’s for me and only me.

This. All of this. About women, selfishness, and how we’re expected to do everything.
