Well done to Rebel Wilson for winning Cosmopolitan's Ultimate Woman of the Year! Great to see this go to a woman who knows that inner beauty is worth 100 times more than appearances.
I saw this below post on Facebook from Fight For Equality today and it gave me a much needed Monday Motivation boost! Meryl Streep - this is her on her way home from an audition for King Kong where she was told she was too "ugly" for the part. This was a pivotal moment for the young … Continue reading Boost of the Day #102: Meryl Streep
Perfection is a disease of a nation. We overlay our faces with tons of make-up. We get botoxs and even starve ourselves to become that perfect size.

Her success comes from her ability to act, now through attention seeking 'Miley Cyrus/Kim Kardashian' methods. An air of mystery is a great … Continue reading Boost of the day #30: Air of mystery

You pretend to like the same music as your friends, to enjoy the same movies, to share the same … Continue reading Boost of the day #23: feeling sheepish?
Another excellent example of a celebrity using their powers for good and spreading the word that... It's okay to be different - be yourself. Don't compare yourself to others, you're beautiful in your own way. Don't waste the one thing that makes you unique: YOU. Embrace being you. Thanks Miranda!
