I want to see the world and understand it!

#femalefeature Wednesday brings us Frida Kahlo. I was tempted to follow her name with, 'enough said', but it wouldn't be enough.

Frida was born in 1907, but changed her birth date to 1910 so that she could share her birth date with the year that the Mexican revolution began.
She was fiercely nationalistic, profoundly loved Mexico; evidenced in both her artwork and fashion sense.  Frida wanted to be eternally associated with the Mexican Revolution.  A revolution that included people from various classes.

Openness about her bisexuality, in a deeply Catholic country, is to be admired. Especially when that part of her was often trivialized or downplayed.
Frida lived. Raw and real and present. So may we.

Even better because it's not Notting Hill, it's just a little side street in Cardiff. These houses aren't owned by millionaires or tycoons, just the plebs! Making their houses pretty, just because.

I want to live in a house like this. 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄 #touristathome #elmstreet #roath #cardiff #cymru #Wales #iheartcardiff #wearecardiff #dreamhome #wander #dreambig #pretty #consciouswanderings #wanderlostcampaigner

#sickgirlsclub @mabgraves first introduced me to this hashtag. It's one I discreetly follow and lurk around liking stuff in but not obviously interacting too much with. I'm not wanting to make out I have the same level of pain as others with chronic illnesses.

So, why lurk at all? I'll tell you why, good question dear follower, because an illness is more debilitating when we don't acknowledge it, try to suppress it and don't have open honest dialogues about it.

These wonderful #femalefeature candidates all get real about managing limitations.

I've just had a round of blood tests, I'm snuggling my womble, Alderney, that has been my favourite cuddle buddy for over 20 years, she even moved to Mexico with me. This Womble never defines me by my worst days. You musn't define yourself by yours. #wegotthis 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 #lifelessordinary #lifteachotherup #feministaf #realtalk #IRL #lifeisntawishgrantingfactory #spoonies #livingwithchronicillness #thefaultinourstars #babysteps #onedayatatime #honestyisthebestpolicy #wanderlostcampaigner #consciouswanderings

FEMALE FEATURE MONDAY: @Gabaccia

Now that I live a more minimalist life, the one thing that has become more important for me (well, us really), has been living a more conscious life. Being an ethical consumer has always been a goal of mine, and I try my best at all times to support small businesses and conscious brands through my purchases. ⠀

I don't shop much these days, unless I'm getting rid of something, or if I absolutely need something. But, when I do I make sure I am buying something I can be proud of. ⠀

Some of my favorite conscious brands are:⠀

Clothing:⠀
@dazey_la (here pictured)⠀
@alohaforpeople
@tentree
@patagonia

Body:⠀
@littlebarnapothecary
@eirnyc
@rawelements
@mrbsnecessities

Etc:⠀
@simplystraws
@im_with_the_band_headbands
@hyperlite_mountain_gear
@wanderwetbags

FEMALE FEATURE MONDAY: @Gabaccia

When I met my friend @euniquedeeann little did I know that we would embark on a crazy business venture together. It has been key to my growth and evolution as both a human and professional to have found someone with whom I can collaborate both near and far, and who shares my values and dreams. ⠀

Through our platform @strandedonland we've been creating a community centered at the heart of conscious living and constant exploration. We invite everyone to #getoutsidethegrind in their own way, incorporating the outdoors in their routine rather than making it an escape from it. Our mission is to inspire YOU to explore + create.⠀

How we do it? ⠀
Through Collaborations with conscious brands, curated Experiences, Travel + Outdoor Guides, Interviews with people from the global community, and telling Stories.⠀ Do you have a friend who empowers you in both business and life? Tag her in the comments and let’s celebrate each other! ⠀

Hi Everyone! I'm honored to be taking over Kelly's IG today.⠀

Quick facts:
I grew up in Veracruz, Mexico.
My career has included work in theater, education, retail, non-profit, and digital services.
Favorite Mexican food: Enchiladas de Mole and Esquites
Food I love to cook: Curry
Currently posted in: Albany, NY
Home-base: Encinitas, California
Favorite color: See picture 🤗
.
I'm a nomad running my own digital business from the road, always seeking for adventure in nature. Passionate about conservation and exploration, if I'm not at my laptop, you can find me creating content while I #getoutsidethegrind w/ @strandedonland , volunteering for the @nationalparkservice , hiking, camping or backpacking.⠀

My boyfriend Roberto and I began living on the road about a year ago after deciding that paying for travel was a better idea than paying for rent. That truck you see in the photo has now become our home and best friend. It's still a work in progress, but we are taking things slowly. Where we travel depends much on our personal callings, where our friends and family live, everything in between, and obviously what budget we are working with at the time. ⠀

In order to downsize from an apartment to a truck I had to let go of 3 truck loads of belongings, which felt amazing! I actually sold most of the stuff online which help offset the expenses of getting the new vehicle and setting it up so we could live out of it. It's always an expense to move and you don't really see/feel your savings until a few months down the road.⠀

Curious or have any questions about life on the road? Feel free to message me directly, I'm always happy to share what I've learned.⠀

I remember the kids at school who had to make cards for days like today; some had absent fathers and others had lost theirs, some had strained relationships and others painful memories.
When you're privileged you often don't know it. You are unlikely to realise the ways in which things you take for granted are actually just your good fortune.
My dad votes Labour, believes in unions, admired Muhammad Ali, was into Bowie when 'only faggots' liked him, thinks we are part of one body, is a staunch supporter of the NHS, values loyalty and berates others for racist or mysogynistic views, taught me to punch when I was being bullied and accepted it when I got a girlfriend in my 30s.

I know what I've got when he's here! He had a quadruple heart bypass this year, now look at him!

FEMALE FEATURE SUNDAY: in May, I took a last minute holiday to Malaysian Borneo. I stayed at a beach resort which was relaxing, but I also had the opportunity to hike in the jungle 😍 Bako National Park is the most amazing natural place I’ve been so far in South East Asia. The amount of wildlife here is unreal, and it is all protected! .
.
In order to visit Bako, you need to take a 30 minute boat ride from the harbour, as there are no roads going into the park. Here we saw Proboscis Monkeys, Silver Leaf Monkeys, Wild Boars, Green Tree Pythons, Tree Lemurs and Macaques. I’ll never forget it. @headingfortheocean ・・・
The path less travelled is always one I’ve preferred to walk on. It’s not always easy, but it’s definitely the most rewarding. I’m working on my blog and being my own boss. Travelling around the world and teaching has brought me so many amazing memories ❤️
.
What would you say your greatest accomplishment has been so far? .

I was in my absolutely glory in #nz visiting #mountjohnobsevatory and stargazing. Did you know that Lake Pukaki is an official Dark Night Sanctuary? This means you are able to see so many more stars and galaxies than you would ever see in a city, or even a small town. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I highly recommend stopping here if you are travelling through the South Island of New Zealand⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
