Maybelline New York recently launched its global philanthropic initiative, Maybelline Brave Together — a cause dedicated to breaking the stigma around anxiety and depression while addressing challenges and providing resources to those in need.

Through two years of extensive research, Maybelline found that early intervention paired with the right resources and access to 1:1 support can make all the difference in a young person's life and since COVID-19, the need for resources has only increased

Maybelline has committed to donate $10M over the next five years to global and local mental health organizations, some of which include: Crisis Text Line, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), and The JED Foundation.

Maybelline deployed a digital resource site to make expert advice easily accessible 24/7, which will feature tips from experts, including Elyse Fox, Founder of Sad Girls Club, Larissa May, of Half the Story, and Liz Beecroft, Licensed Master Social Worker, psychotherapist & mental health advocate.

The Brand is also working with Dr. Kathleen Pike, a Psychologist at Columbia, to compile a global report focused on anxiety and depression in Gen Z women.

This virtual event will empower those who feel powerless as having a more powerful identity by unleashing their mental indomitable spirit and further reinforcing the fact that they will not let their mental health battles diminish their wellbeing.

I will be attending this Saturday and hope you will, too!

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

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.

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

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.
