When Nick Jonas was first seen with the lovely Priyanka Chopra every heart of every 20 something year old who has been dating Nick in their dreams ever since the Jonas Brothers hit the scene when we were maybe 11-years old, shattered. But not because our celebrity husband was seeing another woman, but because we could tell that this was a couple worth getting behind. We loved them.

Two absolutely stunning, talented, kind-hearted human beings could not be more perfect for one another But like every couple there are differences and when they commit to marriage with one another they embrace the differences. And their double culture wedding embodied and embraced every bit of each other's traditions and cultures.

The first weekend of December the dynamic duo tied the knot in not one, but two beautiful ceremonies. One traditional western Christian and one traditional Hindu. And by what we have seen of the pictures from this marvelous wedding weekend, we all wish we could at least be a fly on the wall of this non-stop celebration. From Priyanka's gorgeous white, fitted Ralph Lauren dress with a veil that trained many many feet behind her that made all our jaws drop. To her stunning red dress and seeing the Jonas brothers unite with their brother standing by his side at the altar. And then that huge freaking cake and the choreographed performances!

But above all that we can't help but feel proud and pumped about the foundation these two have set in their weddings.

"I could not hold it in. I think I was nervous and scared. But as soon as the curtains opened, and I saw his face, it was just like everything settled and I knew I was making the best decision of my life." - Priyanka

Each wedding was focused on the couple and each tradition. Both ceremonies, both the bride and the groom showed that they knew what they were marrying into. They showed love and respect for each family. They once again showed the world that while we have different backgrounds, traditions, families, marriage is a commitment to your spouse. It's a choice to learn more about one another and what is important to them.

Yes, the Jonas' double-culture wedding weekend was extra extravagant and we all can't have that physically. But the love and the joy that the two shared for one another is something we all can possess and learn and grow from.

One part of the wedding weekend we all will now add to our future wedding and family gatherings is the non-stop partying! Following Indian culture, Nick and Priyanka and both families participated in a Mehendi Ceremony and an epic Sangeet which both families performed musical numbers that shared what was important to them. And after all was said and done in true Indian fashion Priyanka's family blessed the newlyweds in a Bidaai ritual.

The wedding, of course, had very special and personal touches to them. Nick's dad officiated the wedding and according to People magazine, inside Priyanka's dress was a piece of her new mother-in-law's wedding dress from 1985. And Priyanka's mother walked her down the aisle to her handsome and beautifully emotional husband.

Weddings can be lavish and they can also be simple. But one thing that remains true, all weddings celebrate the love and commitment two people make with one another.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

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.
