If Coffee, Yoga, And The Color Brown Were An Aesthetic...

A look into one of my aesthetic inspirations.

Many times I've been scrolling through Pinterest, seeing all the outfits and lifestyle choices, and wanting to throw my whole wardrobe away so I can fit THAT look. I'm inspired to start a whole new lifestyle change, move to that beach or that foreign country, just to fit the aesthetic I fell in love with.

All this to say, I've done this so many times, I've started to recognize a pattern in the same few aesthetics that I often to dream about. It's perfectly acceptable to want our lives to lead different vibes at one time, and there's nothing saying we can't be an angelic creature one week, and a stone-cold heartbreaker the next.

The aesthetics that I choose to describe through the next few weeks might not be relatable to every person, but it may be an inspiration to others to find out what vibes make their soul happy. So for this first week, I decided to start with a simple, minimalistic aesthetic.

While I'll put an additional little comment after each picture, the main inspiration of this aesthetic is to feel healthy. And not the type of healthy that requires trips to the gym five times a week, but the kind that makes the heart feel full. When I think of this theme, I think of the moment when you wake up after eight hours of sleep in fresh sheets, with a fluffy white comforter wrapped around you and a fluffy dog ready to cuddle you. Please enjoy a look into one version of myself!

Simple, healthy food.

I'm sure each time I'd sit down to eat blueberries, it wouldn't look like this, but the idea of always being fueled by colorful food sounds nice. I think the idea of eating healthy is so nice, but it's definitely one of the harder habits to stay committed to. I know when I eat healthy, it affects my physical health along with my mental health and I have so much more energy.

Sweet company.

There's nothing like being surrounded by people that bring you joy, and for me, that's at least one furry friend. The boy is optional.

A clear mind.

Sometimes journaling isn't always practical, and we may not have much on our mind, but the habit of writing things down is undoubtedly helpful. Making sure I'm at peace is so important.

A balanced body.

The idea of this is to simply take care of ourselves. Our mind and body are equally important. Neutral-colored clothing is also the key to this aesthetic because it keeps everything simple.

Loving friendships.

Kind of like good company, the idea here is to have comfortable and loving surroundings. I like the idea of keeping a few small friends, with deep and heartfelt connections.

A lively home.

Just because I want to live a quiet and reserved life doesn't mean it needs to be drab. Having simple plants and a sweet dog keeps it lively at any moment, and keeps you company even after guests have come and gone.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
