The Story Behind the Self Love Pinky Ring Self Care Break and Relaunch

After a six-month, self care break, the Self Love Pinky Ring is back. And so am I. I’m here to share the backstory, and also to share why this time is different.  Six months ago, I had one of the best sales months in Fred and Far’s history. You might ask yourself, “Who would walk away from that? Who would say no to people who want to buy something from you?” That would be me, Melody Godfred, your founder. Even though the business was flourishing, I was breaking. I had recently had my third child, dealt with another health scare,...

A Message from our Founder

Dearest tribe, Last night as I looked up at the blood moon lunar eclipse, I found the certainty I've been searching for. Over the last year, I've started asking myself the questions I ask of all of you: am I being true to my most authentic self? Am I spending my time cultivating joy? Am I caring for myself?  When I started working on Fred and Far and The Self Love Pinky Ring in 2015, I was in a very different place. I didn't even know to ask myself these questions. Putting on my pinky ring, and making myself a...

Why Thank U, Next, Ariana Grande's Self Love Anthem, Is Her Best Song

Ariana Grande’s new single, "Thank U, Next," is good. Really, really good. Maybe even the best song of her career. And not just because of its infectious hook and uplifting melody. It is the perfect self love // gratitude anthem for our self love movement. After a very public broken engagement, and the sudden loss of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, it would have been very easy for her to come out with a traditional heartbreak anthem burning her exes. But instead of dwelling on the negative, Ariana handles loss on multiple levels with inspiring grace and self love, and shifts her perspective...
