Lose You To Love Me By Selena Gomez Is Self Love In Action

Selena Gomez just released a new single, Lose You To Love Me, that offers a stripped-down sound that is the perfect pairing for the song's unprecedented vulnerability. While we can guess who the song is about, the theme is unmistakable: that sometimes, the road home to oneself is paved with broken hearts. But is it worth it? Absolutely. About the song, Selena wrote in a statement, "This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album. I thought it was important to share the music, as I know many can relate to the fact that...

Melody Godfred and Shani Silver | A Single Serving Podcast

A little over six months ago, my dear friend Shani Silver launched a podcast by, for and about single women called A Single Serving Podcast. The goal: to change the conversation around being single into one that doesn't suck. Spoiler alert: it's really good. So good that it has already had 60,000 downloads. Shani has been single for eleven years. And she's not mad about it. Her perspective is outrageously uplifting, refreshing, and most of all, real. Her column for Refinery29, Every Single Day, is one of the site's most successful for precisely these reasons. I feel lucky that I got to...

We're Making Self Love Pinky Rings More Accessible With Afterpay

Self love is priceless. It’s one of the few things that is accessible to anyone, and it has always been a priority of ours to make our Self Love Pinky Ring equally as accessible. We understand that the Self Love Pinky Ring is a big investment, and the last thing we want is for you to purchase something you can't afford all at once. For that reason, we've incorporated afterpay as a payment option on our website, which allows you to pay for your purchase in 4 equal installments every 2 weeks with no interest. How is afterpay able to do that?...

From Self-Sacrifice to Self-Care: One Mother's Wake Up Call After Cancer

Should there be a change in cabin pressure… put on your oxygen mask first before helping others.  As a new mom, I would roll my eyes every time I heard these instructions before a flight.  At the time, I believed I had an invisible cape and that all moms were invincible. I couldn’t comprehend how these flight attendants could suggest for a mother to put herself and her needs before that of her children. As a new mom, I genuinely believed motherhood was synonymous with self-sacrifice.  And living with this belief was exhausting. When I was at work, I had...

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...
