I was trying to type this out on Women’s Day itself but I was way too sleepy! So this was planned before the ootd post but written after :p
How was your Woman’s Day weekend?
Mine was spent being introspective.
This year’s theme for IWD is Inspiring Change.
It ties in well with the ‘fire in the belly’ theme that was spoken of on Saturday, at Aware’s IWD event.
Ex-president of the organisation…
I am really fussy about the type of sleeves a top or dress has, as I am sure many ladies out there are.
I didn’t give them a try for fear of looking too large or awkward in them. Well, that attitude is so Aarti of 2011.
This Aarti? She says bring it!
Look for the evening :
Yeah…I couldn’t help dancing around in this outfit because it’s definitely one for the club!
printed dolman sleeved…
a week ago, I got a cast of my belly taken and it’s probably one one of these holding tea lights. It was a symbolic message for us -
igniting a fire in the belly to take further strides with women empowerment in a nurturing environment. I know that you’re well informed of my passion for body positivity and plus size fashion, but I was a feminist way before

Her ambition was to become a doctor, but she couldn’t afford the fees. She hopes her daughter will become a well-known, highly skilled doctor. Saba wants to go to university, and would like to become a renowned lawyer. Photograph: Omar Sobhani/Reuters
Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPwomenwhoinspire
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a post announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.
In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, the goal this weekend is to take portraits of the women who inspire you and share their stories in your caption. Some tips to get you started:
- Let the story drive your portrait. Spend time talking with your subject beforehand, explain the project and try to capture what inspires you in her body language and expressions.
- When taking a portrait, take some time to think about light. Seek out soft windowlight for a calm portrait or, for a more dramatic shot, position your subject in a sharp sunbeam.
- Finally, if you’re inspired by a woman you’ve never met, try using this project to reach out to her and share how she inspires you. She’ll appreciate hearing from you, and you might just get the chance to take a portrait of someone you really admire.
PROJECT RULES: Please only add the #WHPwomenwhoinspire hashtag to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!
Im definitely getting this done!
Happy International Women’s Day! This year’s theme is about inspiring change and what a fitting theme it is. My hope for us is that we treat ourselves and each other with love, kindness and respect. We are the strength of the world and we will not be trampled upon! 👸 💪 #internationalwomensday2014 #inspiringchange #feminist #psblogger #mystorysg
#tbt Ze purple hair. Makes me want to dye my tresses with a bold shade again!
Yesterday’s outfit of the day post was very empowering for me.
I am particularly conscious about these parts of my body when being photographed : my chin, upper arms, belly.
But because I had a point to prove with the images, I became a lot less self conscious. I used a hair band which I never do – you will always find me framing my face with my hair.. Which is why I hardly tie my hair up in…
