Not a Do Nothing Bitch



Ronda Rousey is the first and current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion, and used the phrase “Don’t Be a Do Nothing Bitch” to raise funds and awareness for those with body image issues. To quote Ronda and popsugar.com:

“Ronda could not possibly care less about what you think of her “masculine” body, and she’s confident as hell, as she should be. “There’s not a single muscle on my body that isn’t for a purpose, because I’m not a do-nothing b*tch.”

The campaign is over, but the message remains loud and clear.

Tamara in the Black and Red Bugatti


tamara_webIn 1929, Tamara de Lempicka painted a self portrait of herself in her green Bugatti –
Autoportrait (Tamara in the Green Bugatti)“.

From the wikipedia page: ” In 1929, after having the painting published as the cover of Die Dame, a German fashion magazine; her self-portrait became known as the “hymn of the modern woman” for it would inspire the imagery of an emancipated woman.

Bugattis may have changed but Tamara is still an icon for the “modern woman”.
