This week’s Fierce Female has accomplished more than I have, and I’m almost twice her age… Marley Dias! 11-year-old Marley Dias of Philadelphia was frustrated with the books she was reading in school, and decided to do something about it. She told Philly Voice, I told [my mom] I was sick of reading about white boys and dogs,” Dias said, pointing specifically to “Where the Red … Continue reading Fierce Female Friday
Macklemore (& Ryan Lewis) released his new 9-minute track, “White Privilege II” this past Friday. I do not pay enough attention to Macklemore to even know when he releases new music, but I came across a Fader article about the song by Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib that, for the first time, made me search Macklemore on Spotify.

Several magazines released their upcoming February covers within the past week or so, and they are all PERFECT! I’m just going to show you instead of tell … Continue reading February Cover Girls (And Boy)
I am sooo late to the game (Literally) when it comes to these girls. But they’re still fierce– Sophie Houser and Andy Gonzales!!! High school students Sophie and Andy met at the Girls Who Code summer program, where they learned how to code through various projects, and were required to complete a final project at the end of the course. Tampon Run was that final project. … Continue reading Fierce Female Friday
Pantone named Rose Quartz (13-520) the color of the year(or a color of the year because idk if the colors are graded against each other)! I still have yet to understand how choosing the color of the year works, but I support this decision. We saw so much of this color on the runway Sunday night (Katy Perry, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara) that I think my … Continue reading Rose Quartz
