Emma Watson Changing Female Image

Ciao Tutti,

I just watched a PopSugar one minute clip on Emma Watson’s recreation of Belle and, it is fantastic. If you all remember when Cinderella came out it gave a very unhealthy image of this Disney princess with the controversial corset that was worn. In the 1820-30’s lacing began with corsets to maintain an unrealistic hourglass figure; this is actually shown in the Pirate’s Of The Caribbean when Ms.Swan falls off the balcony unable to breath and, Sparrow jumps in and, rips it off of her. The corset basically pushes all of the organs together and, was so tight that the lady’s would frequently pass out.  However fashionable they believed this corset to be, they should have been alarmed at the first sign of lady’s passing out. With tuberculosis and, pneumonia floating around they women were subject to double the trouble when they wore the corsets because, they were already restricting the lungs, therefore, it would make it almost impossible to breath if they had one of these common illnesses. Just like bras are becoming an issue because the breast are supported and, the muscle becomes reliant on the bra. The tight lacing did the same, only, worse causing the back muscles to rely on the corset for support. Doctor Ludovic O’Followell was to thank for the first X-Ray and, he did a study on women wearing corsets and, how it effected them. Needless to say, he was not about the corset. thankfully women came to their senses in the 1920’s and, decided to ditch the corset for an opposite and, rebellious approach the flapper dress. It is alarming that women are still using corsets today better known as, waist trimmers made famous by Kim Kardashion. In case women haven’t realized, the waist trimmer may help get your body to a certain shape but, it is not help your lungs or, organs. Emma Watson being the support of females and, understanding the need for image change really took a stand when she gave Belle a new corset-less image. The new Belle will be a great role model for little girls as well as, women to help them embrace their own bodies and, realize how unhealthy the Disney Princess image is. Emma Watson has given Belle a new background as well, as a inventor like her father. I feel Disney had a mention in their original movie that Belle was moving in the direction of becoming an inventor however, they did not focus upon therefore, making the image of Belle just like the other princesses instead of, the strong, independent and, intelligent women she was. Emma Watson also, mentions that Belle is an active princess which, they never have focused on how important it would be for the princess to be playing outside and, getting in physical activity. We should always be giving women and, girls a healthy image and, encourage them to find out what they enjoy doing. Whether it is chemistry, animal science, playing sports, art, music; it is important to explore and, test out everything possible. We should also, be encouraging women and, children to be as active as possible. Eating healthy, playing/exercise is important and, needed for our bodies lymphatic system as well as, mental health. Emma Watson is doing an amazing job and, I would love to see her continue to grow and, create a new image of women.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Trending: Vibram Furoshiki

Hello Loves,

I was searching online today through facebook and, I found the link to some new and, awesome vibram shoes. They fold over your feet instead of tying them up. they are so new I am only finding one review for them on YouTube. From watching the review it looks like the shoe could use a little more support/stability. I am wondering if I were to walk around int the shoe if my toe would keep slipping forward? I have not ha luck with getting vibram shoes second hand in the past because they don’t seems to fit vibram-wrap-shoesquite right. If I could actually try on a vibram shoe at the store I’m sure I could find my fit. As the vibram furoshiki is a new trend within the fitness industry is it possible companies like Nike will hop on board to make a similar shoe? The look of this shoe is much more attractive then the 5 finger vibrams which might make them more appealing to the customer. The guy that did the review said that he would be returning the shoe because of the fit and the fabric. he fabric looked extremely thin which is a little alarming when it is there to protect your foot. When I first saw them  thought they’d be great for Italy; they don’t look like sneaker and, they are stylish enough to par with jeans. Than, watching the review I decided they are probably not quite right for my feet. I went to the website to investigate further and, they were over $100 so, I wouldn’t be able to get them anyway. I shop a lot of second hand for a reason. Do you think this trend will catch on or do you think it will be a dud poll in with your comments down below.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Real Estate Junkie

It seems “Virginia Is For Lovers,” at least when it comes to me and their real estate. This week is focused on affordable housing, because, lets face it, most of us are not millionaires. The house you are about to see has a quirky exterior with a gem of an interior. The inside of the house was not as I expected it to be at all; it is modern, open, with great lighting. This house is a perfect one to own given its unique qualities.

 

These 3 bedrooms’ and, 3 baths’ were meant for outdoor lovers’ who will drive their boat in the marinas. It is placed on 2 acres with a community pooled just around the corner. The plus to a community pool is that you don’t have to deal with the maintenance of your own pool, which gives you much more time for that boat of yours. Your porch is in need of some sweet tea and lounging of course, done by you. I know porches always get me so, I thought I’d include something from the original listing, “12 x 15 Screened Porch with lovely natural views over the headwaters.” One patio and, an enclosed porch is amazing especially if you want to have family over for a big dinner outdoors and, don’t want to get eaten up by bugs.

This is one of my favorite rooms because it not only, has some of the coolest doors but, it has a fireplace. A fireplace is so important for a home, at least for me, because it gives it an extra cozy feeling. The house has creek views, a master bedroom with a walk-in closet, storage space, and a car port. If a garage is important to you, I don’t see why you couldn’t build one especially with 2 acres.

The kitchen area is serene and, it seems to open onto the back screened in porch. I enjoy when a kitchen has space for bar stools as well as, a little table for your family to enjoy their meal although, I would be on the patio in the summer and, by the fireplace in the winter but, that’s just my preference.

I thought for the last photo I would show the only picture they include out of the three bedrooms. I would have to see all of the bedrooms to compare but, I enjoy this space as it is one of the most important spaces. My bedroom is my space to work, wind down, and curl up with a book so, I think your connection and vibes should be strong when choosing your space. If you do not have good vibes and, purchase a home there will always be something not right with it, remember to go with your gut.

Forever Seeking Wanderlust

Ciao loves,

My new YouTube Channel is here, forever seeking wanderlust. Forever seeking wanderlust is a channel that will provide ethical fashion and, travel videos. I know there will be questions on why I decided to start a new YouTube Channel when I already have allie vLuv that I am still trying to grow. I still love my channel allie vLuv, no pun intended but, I also, have grown as a person and, some of my perspectives/ views have become stronger. With a longing to travel and a desire to join the ethical movement forever seeking wanderlust was kind of a no brainier. With a blog post series already called, forever seeking wanderlust and, an opening for the name on YouTube & Instagram it had to be fate! So, from now on all ethical/travel videos will be found on my new channel forever seeking wanderlust. That means my capsule wardrobe planning process and, finally getting my fall capsule wardrobe will be featured on forever seeking wanderlust and, of course on here, my blog. I think you all will really enjoy this new channel and, what it has to offer!! I know I am pumped and, trying to figure out how I want to edit the videos and, what videos I want to film on this channel. It is such a particular niche that I want to keep it that way. All of my other videos will be put onto allie vLuv which is board and, I love it that way. Until you all jump over to subscribe to forever seeking wanderlust I will post all my videos on allie vLuv as well so, you don’t miss out. Eventually though, forever seeking wanderlust will have it’s own platform and, no longer be featured on allie vLuv because they are two different channels. I am trying to decide if my travel videos are going to be vlogs or not because I have quite a few trips coming up business wise & as a chaperon! As you all know, I am also, saying for lovely Italia! My new video is about ethical fashion and, breaking news within the ethical fashion industry. I play my role as a news caster which is actually kind of funny and, also, touches on some serious topics. I think this will be either weekly or bi-weekly which is so much fun! It also, spreads the ethical fashion message. Here is the video enjoy and, please subscribe it would be most appreciated!

Pump That System

The lymphatic system is a system that is very important but, on almost no ones mind. To be able to give a broader view on the topic I have done some research in order to be as accurate as I can possibly be about the topic. I am not a doctor nor am I in the medical field and, I am learning about the lymphatic system which, I thought was important for you all to learn a little bit from me and then do research on your own. The inspiration for this post is from Lani Jane’s e-book which I will link below. She brings up some great topics as well as, has yummy raw vegan recipes. The lymphatic system is extremely important to the body because it helps it get rid of toxins, waste, and unwanted materials. The fluid getting filtered through the blood becomes clean because of the lymphatic system. The lymphocytes are fighters to the war against potential invaders. The lymphatic system helps to fight infections with a “…fluid containing infection fighting white blood cells, throughout the body”(livescience.com). It is important to pump that system because it only pumps through movement, you need to break a sweat and, get red in the face. Let’s get educated and learn about our body so we can heal it from the inside out and, the outside in. Continue to heal your body and, show it love.

  • Anything with chemicals or that is toxic toss it, it is not worth it
  • Get enough sleep and, listen to your body
  • Move around throughout the day
  • Take long walks in the park and breath in the fresh air
  • cycling is also, excellent
  • Of course you need to exercise but, it doesn’t have to be boring find something that you love to do and keep at 3-7 days a week
  • Drink lots of water and add some fruit such as lemon, berries etc.
  • If you have a trampoline that is highly recommended
  • Do vigorous exercising 1-2 a week
  • I do yoga everyday which helps me remember to breath ( when I miss a yoga practice I notice a difference in my day)
  • Working with you body is so important we forget to listen and, follow through with what our body needs and, wants

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

allie

Breaking News Starbucks Red Cups

Ciao Tutti,

Breaking News is happening all the time and I am covering it for you all. Have you heard about the Red cups from Starbucks? Did you know that this design was established in 1977 so, why is everyone freaking out about a red cup? Some Christians specifically Christian Evangelists are taking it a bit to far and decided that Starbucks is against Christianity and Christmas; when in fact that is not the case, Starbucks is taking steps to be politically correct. Although, I am Christian and love the idea of Christmas cups I am also, all for including everyone and standing to be politically correct. Is this the case where a cup in is in fact a cup and everyone needs to get over themselves, in my opinion yes. Starbucks is in 66 countries and should have their aim in a politically corrective sphere. With the holidays always having a vintage them and old fashioned feeling, Starbucks seemed to not know that this kind of rage would be taking place over a cup. Starbucks may have believed that people would be filled with the spirit of the holidays and not so focused on their red inspired vintage cup. If I was Starbucks and, I had known about the controversy ahead of time I would have done a snowflake cup; then no one has anything to say, snowflakes are not mixed with religions in which I feel they are neutral toward everyone. Like Taylor Swift has done which has made her millions Starbucks has their haters to thank for the free publicity and, no they did not right a song although, that’s a great idea.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Breaking News: Social Media Controversy

Ciao Tutti,

With Social Media Marketing at it’s highest why are Instagrammers/YouTubers sharing their stories and, why is it such a big deal? We have all heard Essena Oneill talking out about how all her post were fake, she was starving herself, and she hated herself but, she was making bank off of her Social Media posts. What happens when the person you are following and looking up to on Social Media has created this fake façade that they don’t even like and, better yet why are they standing for it? Is it the fame, money, and attention… I would check all of those boxes because people who are speaking out about it seem to have done Social Media Marketing in the wrong way taking what ever is offered to them and, not testing the products to see if they actually like them. So, it is not technically a fault of the person but, more of a cry for attention that is desperately needed because they are unhappy with the way their life is going, or people just really enjoy making a ton of money. Either way, Social Media Marketing should be taken seriously and done only for products that the individual enjoys and thinks that other individuals will enjoy as well. Younger girls are extremely impressionable and, hold these socialites on a higher pedestal then themselves; making it extremely easy to sell products to them. If done properly Social Media Marketing can be a platform for products that you love to get attention and, attention that is well deserved. Think about if you posted about a product you hated and said you loved it and, lets say you had 10K followers on instagram tha company is likely to sell over 1,000 of those products at the least. That is 1,000 unnecessary purchases for a product you hated and they are most likely not going to like either. It is not always about making yourself and the company money but, about standing up for what you believe is ethically correct. Instead of just mindlessly posting, post because you believe in the product and you will still believe in the product five years from now. This mindset of ethics will show your followers that you care about them/yourself, and will not have you in bits when your morals catch up to you and, you end up deleting your account and,all that work. Remember that this is a job and as long as the person you are following has products that you both enjoy they should not be criticized for  getting paid.

How I approach Social Media Marketing:

Although, I do not have a big enough following to get paid to promote products on my Instagram I have posted them anyway. I only post about products, people etc, that I love and believe in. My Instagram ranges quite a bit and now that I understand Instagram I have created more Insta account to separate things I love.

@allievluv originally eyeheartedu was transformed this year as to not confuse my YouTube Followers

@allievluvplans was created because I decided I love planning and wanted a platform where other people could relate.

@eyeheartedu Created when I decided that I wanted to further promote Poshmark and my closet. I also, feature other Posher’s closet if I enjoy items that they have. I also, try to show how I am there for my customer and have their best interest in hand; I do these by showing how I package and item or coupons I send. I also, package my items with love, care,and a little something extra for my customers enjoyment.

@thatsabangsfitme My only locked Instagram page as I want to give all of you that are following me on fit me exclusivity to my posts. If you have read the Fit Me posts you know their basis are for motivation but, I will be doing segments about meal prep etc. to keep you all interest. I have already posted on here sharing some motivation for you all so, defiantly head over to Instagram and follow me.

I am going to take you through my Instagram and Step By Step Through all the products I just can’t stop blabbing about. And you know I am in love with it if it ends up on my YouTube Channel, Instagram, or SnapChat.

-Poshmark: I am in love with the Poshmark app and that is because it allows you to make money and buy clothes at the same time! This occurs constantly throughout my Instagram page and did I get paid? Nope, not one penny… I love it so much I created my own Poshmark Instagram to promote my closet @eyeheartedu .

-allievluv YouTube Channel: I am always talking about my YouTube Channel because I love being a YouTuber. In fact, I am rendering a video right now and, I figured why not multitask and get a blog out for my bloggers. YouTube is not only an extreme passion of mine it is also, something I hope to turn into a career. I will be working hard this November to get a post out everyday. Which, was suppose to start this Friday but, I am sick. I am still getting my YouTube Channel and blog content although, it is not the content I hoped for.

-Friend’s Businesses: I also, support my friends and if you look through my whole instagram you will find posts about my friends businesses. As you know I have never got paid to promote a business/product through my YouTube Channel so, it is strictly because I love and support what my friends are doing.

-Other YouTuber- If I like your YouTube Channel it is most likely featured on my Instagram at some point. Even though these YouTubers are bigger than I am doesn’t mean I don’t support my fellow YouTubers.

-Veganism/Vegan Products: I have not been Vegan my entire time on Instagram so, not all my posts hat are food related are Vegan but, ever since I turned vegan I have defiantly promoted the lifestyle! I will never go back it is amazing and makes me feel so much better. I promote vegan products like 100 Percent Pure that has my favorite lotion Vanilla Bean which I purchased after receiving a sample in my first purchase from them.

-Whole Foods, Fruit, Rawtill4, Fashion, Trips, Lookbooks, Makeup, Makeup Artist & Photographer for my lookbook, letote, Candles, Tea Mugs, DIY Projects, Welledia, Canon Camera Just Being Myself.

I promoted all these products, places, people, things without getting paid so, can you imagine how amazing the product etc. would have to be for me to accept being paid. If you continue to be yourself within posting have fun with it the paid post will be just another symbolism of yourself.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you did share & follow me! I would love to chat with you down in the comments.
