Why Turning 50 Rocks!
I’m turning 50 this weekend. Can you believe it, 50! I think you should push yourself at any age, but there is something about the big five-0 that’s special. Basically, you’re at the midpoint of your life; it’s literally your midlife. You have one Louboutin in the grave.
So when I turn 50 on Sunday, I’m ready for an “Awakening”.
“The Awakening”, is a short-film I created this year. It is raw and provocative, capturing my thoughts on modern day feminism. I envisioned and created the film in honor of women. With this movie, I send a message to women all over the world; “Shed your old skin and free yourself from expectation; dare to take a bite from the apple.”
Together we can disarm the stereotypes that for far too long have misled our societies; that we (women) don’t have the skills, intelligence or the guts to accomplish. All we need is females thinking forward: women who understand that equality isn’t dependent on external factors; something passively received or violently acquired.
Women, who train their minds so that they feel powerful themselves. Women, who feel, think and radiate confidence. Not against, but in partnership with men. Ultimately we give progress to ourselves. We are the third movement; females moving forward.
The one gift I ask for, above all else, for my 50th Birthday is that you take the time to view “The Awakening” and share my movie with all the women you know.
Let’s collectively free ourselves from expectation and dare ourselves to take a bite from that apple!
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.
