Bill Cunningham: New York
Bill is a street photographer, best known for his work in The New York Times Magazine. He had a modest up bringing; with his love of fashion starting as a young child when he noticed the hats women wore to church. Bill is highly respected in the fashion industry for having a great eye and knowing what is “in” at that particular time. In the documentary he says, “Fashion is the armor to face the reality of everyday life.” He cares for the clothes, the color, the cut— not the fame or lack of, of the person wearing it. Bill merely wants to document the evolution of everyday style, whether in the street or charity galas.

The documentary tells of how she has been collecting and haggling with sellers since she was young.

Ari Cohen Seth created this documentary, influenced from his blog Advanced Style, showing the glamorous fashion and style of women over 50 years old.

If you like fashion or true style you will love and respect these documentaries. Fashion can mean anything, as long as you believe in yourself and take risks. And don’t worry, fashion is ever evolving, so if that hat you love so much isn’t cool right now, if you keep it around, it might just be cool again in a few years.
If this music clip doesn’t make your day then nothing will! Joseph Gordon- Levitt and YouTube sensation and just all round creative genius Todrick Hall dress up as two petulant high school girls and sing about how their crushes have followed them, talk about first world problems.

What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day than with some quotes from some of the worlds strongest and most successful women.

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness. – Oprah Winfrey

The best thing you can possibly do with your life is to tackle the motherfucking shit out of it. – cheryl strayed

I’ve recently gone off on my own, quitting my day job and going for my dream job. When I look back on it it feels like it happened so quickly and yet so slowly.
I had been working up to quitting my day job by picking up freelance writing jobs, learning my craft, and growing my skill sets but I ran into a rut when I realized that in order to really go for my dream job of curating content for great brands, writing, and blogging I would need to have more time.
Yet, I couldn’t get more time if I was putting in 30 hours a week at my current job. The trick was that it meant that I was going to be taking a serious pay cut while I drifted in limbo from one job to the next.
By serious pay cut I mean that I knew I had $25 coming to me that week and the next if I didn’t land myself another job soon. That was it.
Now that a few weeks have passed I’ve been able to hustle my way into two new jobs but I’ll still need to pick up a few more projects if I want to be able to have room for paying my bills and being able to play.
This has led me to feeling like I’m treading water.
Look, I’m a full believer in fate and in the universe working in my favor. Just as I quit my day job I had somebody tell me that they needed help creating content for their company’s Instagram page. A week after that I was able to land myself another job doing the same thing. On top of that I had a previous employer ask me to do some writing for them.
It all happened in such perfect timing that it has forced me into a constant understanding that I am on the right path, doing the right things, making the right connections, and in the right head space with this life changing decision.
Yet, here I am ready for somebody to toss me a floaty so that I can take a break from swimming for a little bit.
So here’s where the epiphany happened.
I was talking with a close friend the other day who has created their own company and he sat me down and told me “I have so much respect for what you are doing right now. I know what it feels like to go off on your own and I know how scary it can be, and because of that I am so proud of you.”
I immediately felt this insane sense of relief.
Knowing that i wasn’t the only one who has had these feelings of being overwhelmed, self doubt, days of pure invigoration, and all the like that come with this path I have chosen grew my muscles. It’s made treading water seem slightly easier because now I know that someone else has felt exactly this way and come out of it successfully.
It soon had me thinking:
Why is it that we think we are the only ones that are going through certain emotions?
Maybe you’re not starting a business but maybe you’re going through a terrible break up, a tough time with a friend, or a sensation of feeling lost in life.
What makes these emotions so hard is that for some odd reason we single ourselves out and assume that nobody else knows what it is that we’re going through.
Even more so, I think that we just forget that other people have and are going through and doing the same things that we are.
When we take a step back and realize that we are not the only ones, not the first, not the last, and that there are thousands of people feeling these same emotions-it makes them lose their power over us.
If anybody else can have this feeling of treading water, can feel totally abandoned after a relationship goes wrong, can go through dramatic family issues, or can go through any type of emotional disruption and come out successful then I know that I can too.
Armed with this realization, I can take on the world. I can travel, I can continue my new business, I can meet new people, I can stick up for myself and I can create the life I’ve always wanted.
I can do all of this because somebody out there has done it and if they can so can I.
Harness the power of knowing that you are just as capable as your idol. If they can do it, so can you. Your only job in the matter is to take action towards making it happen and then take a peak in every single door that opens for you as it does.
You are not alone nor will you ever be alone, there’s always somebody who connects with you on a level that you didn’t realize you could relate with somebody. Trust that there is somebody going through the same things as you and never be afraid to reach out to those people. Chances are they want to talk with you just as badly as you need to talk with them!
Let’s do this whole “life” thing together and empower those around us to make it through tough times, to take risks, and to always choose happiness.
It seems long gone are the days when a brides ‘last day of freedom’ involves heading out to your local pub or bar, drinking far too many shots and waking up the next day having lost your voice due to screaming loudly at semi naked muscly men getting their strip on.
I get it, the thought of taking your mum and mother in law to watch you lay flat on the floor while men hump and thrust the air above you is not for everybody but with some of the latest hens trends around, have we all taken this fun girls night out a little too seriously?
Over the years, Hens night traditions have evolved into something a little less ‘night’ and ‘last day of freedom’ and little more ‘day’ and ‘all things sophisticated’.
Whether you think they are a hit or miss, here are some of the latest trends for the Modern Womans Hens Party;
Wineries – Well…there is wine tasting, there are a bunch of your favourite people, and either a fun bus trip their and back or an overnight stay, so all in all, sounds like a good one to me.
Escape rooms – If you’re a clever hen and enjoy your action and adventure movies, you may want to try gathering the girls and taking them to an ‘Escape Room’, full of mystery, puzzle solving and code cracking, an interesting and popular option for like-minded groups.
High Tea – I love a high tea, sandwiches, teeny tiny cakes and an endless supply of cups of tea, it’s all a bit royal and englishy (there’s a new word for you)…but if you’re going to go down this path make sure the venue is somewhere you can make a bit of noise, have a laugh and be a little silly. It’s a party after all !
Pole and Belly Dancing – Good exercise and a chance to have a laugh at and with each other.
Lawn Bowls – What can I say? We have gone from strippers to lawn bowls… If you and your guests are the type of people that can create fun no matter where you are, than this may be an option for you J
Day Spa – Many beautiful day spas have rooms designed for this type of occasion, where guests are massaged or have facials followed by refreshing drinks and afternoon tea. A nice option for a smaller group who prefer less conversation and a little more pamper.
Life drawing lesson – Let’s not kid ourselves, we aren’t all there because we are aspiring artists, we are there to see how long we can go keeping a straight face without bursting out laughing. A good chance to do something different and be silly with the girls.
Cocktail and Cooking Courses– A chance to learn something new and have a laugh with the girls whilst doing it.
