HOLIDAY SPIRIT: With the unusually sunny weather we've had recently, it feels like we are on holiday already. Whether you are preparing for the fun and excitement of a trip or are holidaying at home, travel is always a source of inspiration for many of us. ⠀ ⠀ We asked our founders on @JanetsList to share stories of trips that inspired their products and to suggest one of their products that is a 'must have' for anyone taking a trip.⠀ ⠀ First up is Aisha (@aishgn) of Aish's Butt Butt (yes those are two 'Butts' :) She is new to Janet's List (recommended by @roshnigoyate) and we are thrilled to have her on the list. ⠀ Aisha spent 10 months travelling round Australia in a mini-van. She returned to the UK with a minimal mindset. ⠀ ⠀ She says: 'I began to make my own moisturiser as a way of de-cluttering and de-chemicalising my own skincare. So I whipped up a simple, honest and natural lil body butter for myself. I would very often give this to fam & pals as gifts until I felt encouraged and confident enough with it to put it on the market. So here she is" ⠀ ⠀ Click on the link in our bio to find out more and to purchase her amazing product x J ⠀

#repost from #imcc5 panelist @peekaboonadiah talking about #oceansonline #imcc5 plenary speaker @diva_amon ・・・ My #womencrushwednesday, @diva_amon: "Representation matters, never underestimate that.. (and gyms on expedition vessels are not that great)." 🌊 Dr. Diva Amon is the only deep sea biologist from the #caribbean. A Trinidadian, she feels that it is important to communicate both the privilege and responsibility that comes with studying such an extreme habitat, especially when it is an ecosystem that is out of sight and out of mind for most people. She's been on 15 deep sea expeditions to date - from exploring the seafloor in her own backyard around T&T, to the hydrothermal vents in the Antarctic and Marianas Trench National Monument. She emphasises that human influence extends even to the remotest part of the planet, and that there is no such thing as a 'pristine' place anymore (think microplastics). It is a very sad realisation, but what fuels her passion is that the discoveries from the deep sea can potentially galvanise the support and action for the protection of this still poorly understood ecosystem. She is also on a mission to make deep sea #science accessible for those in developing countries. Currently, the locals do not have the financial, technical nor technological capacity to venture into this field of study because it is just too expensive. "On all of my expeditions (apart from two or three), I was always the only person of colour, always the only woman of colour; every single time the only person from a developing country. It is pretty isolating and this needs to change." 💯 I think she is a proper #badass, and I'm not able to feature everything that she's doing in this wee post. So do follow her account, and be prepared to be mind-💥 by her amazing work! Thank you, Diva, for your raw honesty. Was such a pleasure chatting with you! You are an #inspiration and a #rolemodel to so many!!! . . #deepsea #ocean #marinescience #explorer #inspirasi #marineconservation #marianatrench #influencer #trinidadandtobago #womeninscience #womeninstem #representationmatters #scicomm #diversityinstem #imcc5

When many people think of HBCU alumni and music, gospel singer Yolanda Adams, rapper Sean Combs or singer Donny Hathaway may come to mind. But what about those who have found success in other genres? @thehundredseven The Hundred-Seven, founded to Positively Promote Historically Black Colleges and Universities is ending Black Music Month by highlighting opera and classical music programs at HBCUs along with HBCU alumni who have found success in the world of opera.

“as a child, i'd scale up tall trees, explore through the woods alone, & find peace in nature. along the way, when my activism/nonprofit work sucked up my time & energy, i lost that childlike wonder i had with the outdoors. in recent years i regained it when i began doing yoga & brought my practice to my backyard & the woods. i began freelance teaching affordable/free yoga classes in my small rural hometown in Pennsylvania where yoga studios didn't exist. i never made a profit but i was happy to provide access to the practice that had given me so much. more recently since moving to Colorado, i began bouldering, which reconnected me with muscle memory of scrambling around on trees & rocks as a child. bouldering has lit a new fire within me, brought me to explore amazing new places outside, & encouraged me to commit more intentionally to my yoga practice. i'm lucky to have great rocks to climb nearby & yoga studios on every block. but with my previous work at a nonprofit dedicated to poverty alleviation & my own personal experience with lack of access, i'm reminded of how difficult it is for some people to participate in these activities. i remember not being able to visit the nearby trails because i couldn't afford the $7 daily fee & struggling to find a single drop-in yoga class for less than $25. even now, i've put off completing my yoga teacher training because ~$3000 just ain't in the budget. i'm hoping in the future to start or work with a nonprofit/studio that provides not just sliding scale/free yoga classes but yoga teacher trainings as well, because poor folks should be able to become yoga teachers, too. i'd also like to be able to fund park passes for those who can't afford them because everyone deserves to hike, climb & access the beauty & benefits of the nature around us. until then, i'm working on providing free online content & guidance for yoga, nutrition, etc. thru my IG account & eventually other platforms. if you'd like to get in touch about anything you can reach out to me at thenessaontherocks@gmail.com or shoot me a DM!” ~ @thenessaontherocks .

“What does that actual mean—why is it called ‘Pineapple Express’, why is it called ‘Barry White’?

My #tbt of this week, an interview for "Just as beautiful magazine" from United Kingdom. Back on my beauty queen days 👑 ___________________ Mi #tbt ďe esta semana, entrevista a la revista "Just as beautiful" del Reino Unido, en mis días de reina de belleza 👑 . . . . . . . #bellezaxl #estaesmibelleza #plussize #beautyqueen #plusmodel #plussizemodel #representationmatters #diversitymatters #newengland #jenniferbarretoleyva

In the "Ask me a question" on IG stories someone said "people call me crazy for wanting to travel with my kids, what's your response to them?". I could go on and on about the benefits of traveling with kids and someone on the other side could rebutt me and talk about the struggles of traveling with kids. When it comes down to it I travel with my kids because I want to. Because I want to enjoy experiences with my girls while I can. All through life the painted picture is work hard, take care of your kids, contribute to your 401k so you can retire and then travel. And then? What if and then never happens? Life is not promised so I am going to live my life and create memories with my kids while I can. We met an elderly couple in Italy, Jordyn was 18 months and I was pregnant with Kennedy. They told me how nice it was to see a young family traveling. How they waited until they put their kids through college and retired to travel but now they couldn't do a lot of the stuff they wanted to. Their age caught up to them and physically they just couldn't do some things. Don't worry about what other people think, someone will always have an opinion. Do what is best for you and your family and what makes you happy. Traveling with my kids makes me happy so I'll continue to do it while I can! #thetravelingchild

💛this! Every child should have the right to enjoy their childhood without worries, stress, or violence. Let's continue to uplift and support our youth.

Once a year we have these classroom trainings, and this is how excited I am about it today. We were scheduled 6am-2pm, an hour and a half earlier than my normal shift. We started half an hour late and are on our second 15 minute break already?! I just don't understand why anyone thinks these kinds of trainings are a good idea. But I'll make the most of it. At least they have coffee for me. And I'll be done by 2 at the latest.

#tbt Met Afua Hirsch at Birmingham City University after a discussion with Dr. Kehinde Andrews about her best selling book Brit(ish): On Race, Identity and Belonging. Afua Hirsch is an author broadcaster, and journalist and an advocate on challenging the status quo on race relations. Brit(ish) is about a search for identity. It is about the everyday racism that plagues British society. It is about our awkward, troubled relationship with our history. It is about why liberal attempts to be ‘colour-blind’ have caused more problems than they have solved. It is about why we continue to avoid talking about race. In this personal and provocative investigation, Afua Hirsch explores a very British crisis of identity. We are a nation in denial about our past and our present. We believe we are the nation of abolition, but forget we are the nation of slavery. We are convinced that fairness is one of our values, but that immigration is one of our problems. Brit(ish) is the story of how and why this came to be, and an urgent call for change. #afuahirsch #stopkillingthemandem #bookstagram #bookworm #lovebooks #weneeddiversebooks #booksasmirrors #blackauthors #literacymatters #reading #biography #education #literacy #literature #ambition #diversity #melanin #rolemodel #leaders #blackpower #british #britannia #dream #blacklivesmatter #racism #representationmatters #blackgirlmagic

Repost @fequalshq “For most of history, anonymous was a woman.” Virginia Woolf It’s time to change the narrative ✊🏽✊🏼✊🏾 These Our Stories Matter t-shirts will be sold alongside books about fab women in history. The idea is that by wearing the t-shirts, we spark conversations around our own stories. And we’re urging all women to share our own stories on social media with #ourstoriesmatter. Whether it is success or surviving, we want to hear from you. The more stories we can share, the better… Because we can no longer rely on others to tell these important stories. We know that our stories matter. They always have and they always will. And they deserve to be told, now more so than ever. • • • • #endometriosis #chronicpain #endoawareness #adenomyosis #womenshealth #empowerment #reproductivehealth #silentillness #periodpain #beheard #doctors #ourstoriesmatter #spoonie #pelvicpain #endostrong #endosister #endowarrior #invisibleillness #endometriosisawareness #livingwithendometriosis #endocomunity #1voice176million #qotd #speakyourtruth #feminism #inspirationaltshirts #representationmatters #girlpower #womanpower #equality
