As women, we view exercise as a way to lose weight, or to maintain it. Which is to say, as a way to shrink, or to stay small. […] there’s a difference between exercising to look strong and exercising to look small. Treating exercise as a means to be more, as opposed to viewing it as a never-ending struggle to be less, is absolutely a game changer.
What Lifting Weights Taught Me About Being a Woman

I love this quote. As someone who is naturally petite, I am way more proud of the muscles I’ve earned than my waistline. It’s also a better thing to focus on than what being small framed doesn’t give you naturally.

Limzy Wei: Flowergirls

artist on tumblr

Malaysian artist Lim Zhi Wei adorns her watercolors entitled “ Flowergirls” with real flowers, to a stunning effect.

Someone please tell me what the purple and white flowers are. And the green ones in that arrangement. I need to know.

Edit: Found the artists blog. Apparently it’s blue eustoma. Still doesn’t answer what the green is.

Agent Carter Panel at San Diego Comic Con

There were exactly four people who got to ask questions during this panel

All four were women

Three of them were dressed as Agent Carter

And they all asked questions surrounding the fact that they loved hearing the story of a strong woman like Agent Carter in a world that seems to exclusively show the stories of strong men

 So if you were wondering why this show is a big deal: That’s why.

Her response. My heart.

Remember when Snape made fun of the size of a teenage girls teeth and she subsequently chose to change them so they were permanently smaller? What a hero. 

Remember how close Snape and Lily were and remember the time when he went and saw her dead on the floor and remember how he held her and cried because he was in love with her 

Ah yes, from my favourite book, Harry Potter and the Things That Never Actually Happened

What is the cost of Tiger Baby Playtime? Is this good for the animals? 
Read on.

This makes me very sad. The only thing I wanted as a kid was to pet a big kitty.
