#Repost @forbeswomen • • • • • • Remember the early 90s when matching your lip and nail colors was all the rage? OPI, a young but successful beauty brand at the time, decided to chase that trend and expand to lip color. But due to damaged product, the company lost millions on its first national distribution. Cofounder Suzi Weiss-Fischmann goes into detail on the lessons learned from this flub (and others) in her book ‘I’m Not Really A Waitress’ named for the brand’s top-selling nail color. If you’re inspired by food, travel, beauty, and family, you’ll learn a lot from this peek behind the curtain of three decades of creative entrepreneurship and leadership. #feministfriday @1stladyofcolors #imnotreallyawaitressbook #opi

#Repost @shakeyourbeauty digging into Faking It by @luxnightmare! On shelves 11/6. ・・・ Currently knee-deep in "Faking It: The Lies Women Tell About Sex - And the Truths They Reveal"...and not just because I give my two cents, on several pages! Not that I've ever lied before, during, or about sex (#lie). Anyway, the fab feminist author, @luxnightmare, interviewed me about the unfair bad rap that many black women get (from men) for wearing weaves, wigs, heavy makeup and such. Here's a snippet: "You grow up thinking that a lighter-skinned woman is more beautiful, a black girl with straighter hair is more desirable, a certain body type is more desirable, and you set up black women to meet all these standards - and when they break their back to do so, you vilify and demean them." 'Tis the truth, Ruth. #readthis #preordernow‼️💋
#Repost @bodyposipanda !!! ・・・ IT'S FINALLY HERE 😭😭 Body Positive Power is OFFICIALLY out in the US & Canada today!! So obviously I did 50+ spinning pictures so that my dad could capture the hair flip on the cover exactly. The dizziness was real. • This book is every single thing I know about why we hate our bodies and how to accept them instead 🌞 diet culture, healing food relationships, ED recovery, health, exercise, belly love and so much more is in there, including a step-by-step guide in the final chapter for getting started on your body peace. 💜 • I'm pushing through the anxiety of self-advocating to say that it would mean everything to me if you would consider supporting the book! If you're financially able, you can get yourself a copy through the link in my bio 🌻 if you've already read it, maybe gift a copy to a friend who you know is struggling with body image 🌸 if money is tight rn that's okay! If you're able to support with time you could leave a review online, or even just a comment here telling others what you thought of the book would be so helpful 🌼 • I know this might never sell as many copies as the latest diet book will, but I'm still hoping we can get the word out enough to send a message to diet culture that we're over it 💁 THANK YOU for sending that message with me. 💜💙💚🌈🌞 • [Image description: Megan is holding a copy of her book Body Positive Power and replicating the hair flip on the front cover against a pink background] #bodypositive #bodypositivity

#ONSALENOW: ODD GIRL OUT: MY EXTRAORDINARY AUTISTIC LIFE by Laura James. From a very young age Laura James knew she was different. She often found herself struggling to cope in a world that just didn’t make sense to her; as if her brain had its own operating system. It wasn’t until she reached her forties that she found out why: suddenly and surprisingly, she was diagnosed with autism. With upbeat, witty writing James outlines the day-to-day struggles of living with autism, all while grappling with her own identity and the unique benefits neurodiversity can bring. Odd Girl Out shows how being different doesn’t mean being less and proves that it is never too late for any of us to find our rightful place in the world.
