What is happiness?

Everything starts with the relationship to the self. How happy you are in work/relationship/family must first be dealt with by examining ones relationship to what things make them happy

When you think about how happy you are, for many years the question concerned how stressed we were which means that the discussion of happiness became secondary to the problem STRESS

Except can one truly escape stress? No, you cant. You can only learn how best to cope with it. Sometimes people become so overwhelmed and obsessed with what others are doing wrong or how they cannot seem to break free of the rut they have found themselves in, that they invariably result in doing nothing. The stress and the pressure renders them quite feeble and unproductive.

I remember I knew someone who said she couldnt sleep or eat because of her feelings about a certain subject. Her issue was that she couldnt change the way someone was acting. She could not cope well. It was as if someone else was in charge of her emotional state but how is that possible? Can others truly control our emotional states? If we allow them to, yes.

The question then becomes how do we concentrate on the self?

Colour Me Beautiful: Health And Culture Sneak Peek #2



Women from different backgrounds all of heights, colours and healthy sizes.

We love it better than magazines, don’t you?

Colour Me Beautiful: The Health And Culture Issue A Sneak Peek





V Magazine has released their size issue where they say V Love U Just The Way U R, which does not seem to translate in their pictures showing that it too has succumbed to the Hollywood Beast, painting pictures of thin scarecrow women contrasting them with their extreme plus-size opposites, instead of showing real women who are HEALTHY. Also, where is the cultural representation they speak of?

Is it this or this?

Most of these plus-size models seem more at health risk than fierce frenzy and the ”tall, thin, short, curvy, whoever you are” in V Magazine? We don’t think so

This is the picture WE want to paint. We have illustrated a picture of health, culture and couleur so we asked some of the beautiful Maverick Femmes we know to share their pictures with us and offer something that V definitely did NOT.

Stay tuned for more updates ;)
