A Golden Girl; Dafne Schippers
What is female power? What does it look like? We’re already familiar with images of male power; the presidents, the business moguls in their powersuits, the Picassos and the Putins. But what if women ruled the world?
As a matter of fact, women are starting to recreate the world from a feminine point of view. And every now and then, a new ‘pin-up’ of female power will stand up. Today you’ll see Dafne run in the 200m final at the World Athletics Championships in China after already having won the Silver in the 100m sprint; but here is a brief background into her history.
In 2013 Dafne amazed the world by breaking her 800m personal best by 6.9 seconds, to win heptathlon bronze at the World Championships. What did she do next? She became a sprint queen! Yes, this 23 year old Dutch dynamo is the living proof that only if you work hard, with complete dedication, you will find your hidden talents. Yes, she happens to be model-pretty, but it’s her determination that makes her stunning to all who come across her.
We’ll be cheering for Dafne today and into the future! Give her your support and tweet her a positive message via @dafneschippers on Twitter!
Coming home for xmas
Confession: I am a total Xmas fanatic. I LIVE for the holiday season. While my usual taste can best be described as austere and intellectual, come Christmas, I’m into kitsch. Big time. Bring on the glitter, the glühwein and the sentimental songs!
Real life Cluedo with a sexy twist
Forget about stressful family gatherings and long, boring dinners; let me show you how to survive the (Christmas-) holidays in sexy style!
Embrace your dark side – get inspired for Halloween
Imagine if there were a night where it would be socially acceptable to indulge your deepest darkest dreams. An annual opportunity for women to dress like their sexual fantasies – be it a blood-thirsty vampire or a flirtatious nun – without getting ‘slut shamed’. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Well there is a night just like that, and it happens to be one of my favorite moments of the year: Halloween.
