A Weekend of Pride

July 1, 2013


Happy Monday! Did you have a good weekend? My mom is still here so I have been catching up on A LOT of reading. Everything from InStyle to Vanity Fair to Time and of course, the internet and all of its social media!

If you have been following MFBS for a bit (gracias!), you might have noticed that I don’t write much on polarizing subjects. We focus on the positives, always seeking benefits for our families. However, I can not refrain from writing that there were HUGE developments last week regarding women’s rights, gay rights and immigration reform. No matter what side we’re on with these issues, we have to remember that there are just a few people out there standing, chanting and fighting for the whole rest of us. I find that very brave and inspiring. A big thank  you to them.

I hope you enjoy this week’s links!

Relax this summer. Just don’t stop dreaming.

Next time I complain about space

“Comparing ourselves to our mothers is pointless.”

Did you know you have 8 super powers? Seriously!

An organization I want to learn more about. I just signed up for their updates.

Travel news in pictures. Slide 14 gives you the chance to win a trip to Thailand!

The top 100 movies that inspire travel (remember slide 10?).

There are 5 parts dedicated to happiness in the current issue of Time. Because I love writing about this topic, I will give you the breakdown this week. Although, you should go ahead and read it! I found it very surprising.

So the 5 year-old Instagram sensation is…MEXICAN. Ajua! Thank you to FB friend Nina for this!

“You’ve got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best you can with what you’ve got. That goes for the figure, and it goes for everything else. You’ve got to have a sense of humor about who you are and give yourself a break. You’ve got to be kind to yourself. And it’s not easy, you know?” -Salma Hayek
