10 Reasons We Love Shania Twain
Start writing a post

Shania Twain; the queen of 90's country music. A role model. Our all time favorite music artist and person in general for many reasons. If you don't know who this lady is, just google one of her songs and you will not be disappointed. She is amazing! Here are ten reasons we love Shania Twain:

1. Her life story is inspiring

Shania Twain is the prime example of how someone can turn their life around no matter what the circumstances. Shania was adopted at an early age, grew up poor (even worked at McDonald's at a time) and lost both of her parents in a car crash when she was 18. She took care of all of her younger siblings, but also made time for her music career and dreams and eventually made her way into Music City, Nashville, Tennessee.

2. Her songs are upbeat and fun

Shania's music style combines country and pop, and makes for great karaoke singing and dancing. Listen to "Any Man of Mine," "Man! I Feel Like a Woman", "Party for Two" or "I'm Gonna Getcha Good." You will understand.

3. Her songs teach young women important lessons

"Nah," "Up," and "She's Not Just a Pretty Face" are three songs from her latest album that can get any lady through a typical day or the worst of a breakup. "Nah" encourages us to never to go back to our exes and puts a fun spin on telling them no. "Up" describes how no matter what is going on, things will always get better. "She's Not Just a Pretty Face" talks about all the different and awesome things us women can do--from being a football coach to a politician. Shania helps us understand that there is more to life than just having a "pretty face."

4. She is beautiful

Behind all of the makeup that her music video producers put on her, Shania is still just as beautiful as ever. Not only is she beautiful on the outside, but also on the inside. In her free time, she is just as real as ever, and she has a soft spot for her pets. Check out her Instagram to see pictures of Jett, Melody, and Skipper-- you won't regret it.

5. She has won 5 Grammy awards

Although Shania would claim fame and fortune don't mean anything as long as you are doing what you love, she has the statistics to back her up. She is awesome and we love her! Need we say more?

6. She has had multiple number one hits

Shania's most popular song, "Come On Over" was very successful and reigned at No. 1 on the country charts for a combined 50 weeks. The album is the bestselling country album of all time—reaching 40 million in worldwide sales—as well as the top-selling album by a solo female artist.

7. She will have an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum this summer

Set to open on June 26th 2017, the exhibit will feature past costumes, photographs and memories of the artist's career. Take a trip to Nashville and see it for yourself!

8. She throws a rocking concert!

Although she claims her last ever tour was in 2015, she is still performing at some music festivals, such as Stagecoach in California this past weekend. We are hoping she will have another tour. You can never have too much Shania... and we are not ready to say goodbye yet!

9. She will be releasing a new album in September

Surprise! Shania will be releasing her first album in 15 years this September! She has been working on this project for a few years now. The album name has not been released yet, but her first single off of the album is "Life's About to Get Good" and is scheduled to arrive in June. We are SO excited and cannot wait!

10. She reminds us of our younger times

Because she hasn't released any new music in a decade and a half, all of her songs remind us of our younger days, ten to fifteen years ago. Our lives were different back then and much more simple. Listening to her songs remind us of these days, possibly our childhoods, when we bought her CDs and where we would listen to them. Luckily now, we can listen to her music anywhere and anytime we want (and we will have new music soon)!

We love Shania! Watch some of her music videos here:

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

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)

Paramount Pictures

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.
