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...

This Halloween Let's Embrace Our Fears

Halloween is interesting because it’s the one night out of the entire year in which being afraid is celebrated. For 364 days, we’re taught to brush our fears away, to be fearless, to act like nothing can spook us. This is of course a terrible mental health strategy, as to be fearless is impossible, and the more we try to get there the more inadequate we feel and the more we hide our true feelings and selves. Then comes Halloween. One night only. Be afraid, get validated! Enter the haunted house, leave with candy. What if we approached every day...

Banksy Made Me Do It: Transforming Everyday Ads Into Self Love Campaigns

Earlier this month, street artist and activist Banksy made headlines and history once again with his latest performance art prank. After his famous work, “Girl With Balloon,” sold at auction for a whopping $1.4 million, a mechanism inside the frame went off, shredding the piece in an act of self-destruction. This stunt can have multiple meanings, as Banksy often uses his art to comment on such structures as capitalism, power imbalances, and corruption.  Wrapped up in the Banksy frenzy ourselves, we started questioning art and its subjective worth. What makes art valuable? What qualifies as art? In what way can...
