So this is love...💕 In all honesty, I have been single for years...and I’m good. I’m more than good, I’m great! For some, being single is on the same level of being alone. I beg to differ. Whether you are single, in a relationship, engaged, married or anything in between...just make sure YOU are happy!
So much back and forth. This is the way I prefer to set large stones with wider bezels. First I open it up to mostly the right size using a ball bur, which is what you see here. Then I cut the seat with a hart bur. I’ve never really like setting burs, I find them too sloppy (likely user error, haha), and this works to make the seat a super tight fit, which makes the actual setting easier. Tap tap tap. #stonesetting#toeachherown#processvideo#bezelsetting#champagnediamond#benchjeweler
Making waves!! So much yes.

Dear Victoria’s Secret,
I was appalled when I saw the demeaning comments about women your CMO, Ed Razek, made to Vogue last week. As hard as it is to believe, he said the following: “We attempted to do a television special for plus-sizes. No one had any interest in it, still don’t.” “It’s like, why doesn’t your show do this? Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show? No. No, I don’t think we should. Well, why not? Because the show is a fantasy.” I’ve read and re-read the interview at least 20 times, and each time I read it I’m even angrier. How in 2018 can the CMO of any public company — let alone one that claims to be for women — make such shocking, derogatory statements?
You market to men and sell a male fantasy to women. But at ThirdLove, we think beyond, as you said, a “42-minute entertainment special.” Your show may be a “fantasy” but we live in reality. Our reality is that women wear bras in real life as they go to work, breastfeed their children, play sports, care for ailing parents, and serve their country.
Haven’t we moved beyond outdated ideas of femininity and gender roles? It’s time to stop telling women what makes them sexy — let us decide.
We’re done with pretending certain sizes don’t exist or aren’t important enough to serve. And please stop insisting that inclusivity is a trend.
I founded ThirdLove five years ago because it was time to create a better option. ThirdLove is the antithesis of Victoria’s Secret. We believe the future is building a brand for every woman, regardless of her shape, size, age, ethnicity, gender identity, or sexual orientation. This shouldn’t be seen as groundbreaking, it should be the norm.
Let’s listen to women. Let’s respect their intelligence. Let’s exceed their expectations. Let women define themselves.
As you said Ed, “We’re nobody’s ThirdLove, we’re their first love.” We are flattered for the mention, but let me be clear: we may not have been a woman’s first love but we will be her last. To all women everywhere, we see you, and we hear you. Your reality is enough. To each, her own. #toeachherown#newyorktimes#openletter
Which kind of Valentine are you?
A) LOVE all things V-Day and go all out! 😍💏💐🍫🍬🛍🎁💕
B) Pass. 😳🤷🏻♀️
100% B right here 🙋🏻♀️🤣
The definition of love evolves as we evolve as individuals and partners.. from fancy dress ups, gifts and dinners, to takeouts in front of the telly, to forgetting to even wish each other, as it’s no longer a deal breaker :) Here’s to pairings that bring out the best in each other! Happy V Day folks, whichever way you choose to celebrate :) 📷: @dreamsalot_anji
Stop comparing how you parent to someone else and how they parent. Not everyone is trying to be the best, a lot of us are just doing our best.
I may not be the breastfeeding, clothdiapering, tamang kain mom you expect me to be all the time (which i really was for 8 beautiful months), but rest assured, my daughter is growing up healthy and so very smart and is learning a lot of good values the way i intend her to be.
I do understand your advocacy but I also have mine to preach. And that is embracing the uniqueness of motherhood and parenting. 🌈👌🏻 To each her own. 👑
Too many of yall are perusing the wrong things in life #toeachherown maybe divorce rates would drop and marriage would increase if ppl would fall in love with the soul and not just what they see with their eyes 🤔
With #vday upon us we agree to disagree on a great many things that aren’t of any consequence albeit fundamental.
I did somehow manage to find the only man on the planet who absolutely hates the taste of coffee and who really isn’t a big fan of bubbles - what with my borderline obsession with both of them.
He adores a good whiskey and a cuppa tea instead - which makes my stomach turn (tea, not whiskey - I do enjoy whiskey once in a while). But we can manage to sit and sip in peace while sharing a good meal and even better conversation.
Where we both hit non negotiable ground is the nitty gritty stuff:
And that is where our relationship is rooted and firmly established.
If every tear drop
Were a bottle of whiskey,
She would be known as
bad influence of history.
If every tissue she grasped
and formed an army
They would sing about how
Everything has to fall;
With a nasal voice
And a runny nose.
If she had not thought of
What being happy
could do for her
Perhaps she would be humming
to Say Something
on a Sunny afternoon;
Heart too broken to bother
about the heat.
Sunkissed skin as disguise,
Armed with a frozen smile
She has a blizzard for a heart.
The dagger by her hand
A mere showpiece to voice out
Just how strong she is
To hold on to that damned,
Yet satisfyingly sharp tool.
She let herself fly
Arms tilted to the sky,
A twirl of salvation, a skip to freedom,
A belief in living on
And living forever.
#ad I am a "free spirit", a gypsy some would say because of my adventurous heart and soul. I am a 34 C and in this video I am wearing the 24/7™ Classic T-Shirt Bra in nude color. To be honest over the years I have preferred not to wear bras, because finding the perfect fit and comfort for my needs has always been difficult for me. I don't like to feel restricted at all (this will never change), and I only love materials really soft to the touch. That is why I fell in love with @ThirdLove and their Ultra- soft smoothing fabrics, because I forget I'm wearing a bra PLUS I get all the support I need! They also come in half sizes which I've never seen before to aid with the perfect fit.
I always cut the tags off all my clothes to avoid them scratching against my skin, but these bras don't come with any! One pro after another since I was introduced to this brand.
I believe in always feeling confident with your choices and especially clothes. Confidence is sexy and it starts within and exudes out, but how you dress yourself from the start to finish will accentuate how confident you are when you walk out into the world. Don't you agree? 🎥 @kellymiyar#ToEachHerOwn#MyThirdLove#confidence#freespirit#gypsy#wildchild#free#beyourself#loveyourself
'To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you into something else is the greatest accomplishment.' I found this statement to be so true.
From the moment a child is a few months old, she is frowned upon if she's not social. People like babies that go to everyone.
Extroverts are appreciated. Introverts are frowned upon.
We are conditioned by the society to educate ourself in something that will earn us lots of money....that something being something in academics. Thankfully I feel that at least this scenario is changing now though. 'Your talent will go waste like this.' 'You should do this.' 'why don't you start this?' Blah blah blah...it goes on and on and on. Sometimes it is genuine concern and rarely even useful advice. But most of the times, it is just an opinion of others based on their needs and their experience and their perception of happiness in life.
Everyone has an opinion on how others should be and how others should lead their lives. But it is not necessarily right for others.
My two cents on this ... Cut out all the noise and center on yourself. Do things that make you happy and not those that will make the world approve of you. You cannot earn the approval of everyone and really why even aspire to do that?
Be yourself and do the things that make your soul dance. Now that is a real accomplishment.
CALLING ALL MOM’S TO PICKY EATERS. Before I got pregnant with my first, I swore my kids would sit at the table like normal people and eat their meals in a civilized manner using their utensils because #whywouldntthey . Fast forward to today, two picky eaters (well one picky almost three-nager and the other just high maintenance and thinks she’s a big girl at all of ten months old and wants to feed herself) later, I’ve come to the conclusion that as long as they’re fed good healthy meals, I don’t care how the food gets in their mouths. (Back Story: My son used to get sick a lot and was underweight when I used the “starve them if they don’t eat right” method.) So, if you see a crazy mom chasing after her kid with a spoon or letting them watch TV or the iPad during meals... that’s probably me. I’ll do anything so that my kiddos are fed. Oh did I mention they only eat Chinese food? 🤦🏻♀️ So any mom’s with tips out there... it would be greatly appreciated!! #survivingnotthriving#fedisbest#toeachherown#atypemom#momssupportingmomswithwine#notatigermom#motherhoodunplugged#parenthood_unveiled#motherhoodthroughinstagram#ig_motherhood
Hi everyone! Welcome to my personal therapy... I mean blog. I’ve been told by many friends that I should share my life and tips of being a mom of two with an addiction to food and all things 🍊. They say it takes a village to raise kids and boy is it true. But this picture pretty much sums is up. I’m a stay-at-home mom who exclusively pumped for both kids, does not co-sleep, is big on schedules, lets them watch TV and iPad (in moderation) and does not sugar coat anything. My kids are happy, healthy and well adjusted/developed. I try not to judge other moms because we really just need to support and everyone is doing the best they can. I hope you enjoy and if this blog helps someone with tips or just needs a laugh, then I’m happy. #survivingnotthriving#fedisbest#toeachherown#atypemom#momssupportingmomswithwine#notatigermom#motherhoodthroughinstagram#ig_motherhood
