We’ve been so lucky at basd to be featured in some of the most amazing media outlets in Canada and the US. So, to say thanks, we wanted to highlight a handful of pieces that have really resonated with us, from a few of the brands that have shown us some love since our launch last year.
Allure has added to the body positivity conversation in a new way, by taking gorgeous portraits of women that highlight what have traditionally been considered imperfections. Things like body hair, stretch marks and scars tell their own stories, of a woman’s growth and development, of her family’s background, of her health and wellness journey. By commissioning these unique portrait series, Allure is encouraging women to embrace, rather than hide, these elements of their bodies. This is at the heart of what basd is, too – we love you as you are, babe.
You’ve heard the phrase, “Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life” but it’s kind of a vague statement, isn’t it? Best Health has gone a step farther and zeroed in on the habits of successful people, and how to incorporate them into your own lives. We especially love #7 – “Successful people take care of themselves.” We’ve got your back on that one, babe.
This one’s a little more practical than philosophical, but it’s essential. Strapless bras are potentially the most ill-fitting garment any woman owns, no? Chatelaine has done the heavy lifting (pun intended) on the best options for busty babes, which means less time in the dressing room and more time for life. And drinks with friends. And goal-chasing. And sleep.
The kind of boss and co-worker you are may not rank high on things you think about, but this Elle Canada article might change that. We love the first point—“Find a mentor, be a mentor”—which means you never stop learning, but also that it’s essential to to pay it forward to those who will follow in your footsteps. Give it a read for a few more empowering gems, babe.
Anyone tapped into the fashion industry knows that the September issue of Vogue is the biggest issue of the year. Rihanna is making history in 2018 by being the first black woman featured on the cover of the British outpost of the iconic mag. We love this teaser video from HuffPo to highlight this moment in history. Talk about a babe!
