The beginning ….summer of 2007 before the meeting

“I am not so sure about him.” The Olive skinned girl says to her sibling. “Then break up.” Her sibling responds “I like his company and him, just not in love with, I will just enjoy the time with him. I like him.” She was not in love with him but this would be one healthy the most healthy relationships she had.

The Independent Women Flies: Love your body

There is so much pressure in today’s world especially towards women to have that perfect body.News flash we all have different genetic combinations and as result different body shapes and sizes and beautiful things like pregnancy that change us for the better. We’re all beautiful the way we are, and if we want to change ourselves it should be out of place of love and health not pressure to be thin. Curvy and proud and you should be of your shape πŸ’—Mia V.

The Breakthrough January 2018

Apprehension coming on strong , self doubt creeping up on her as she sipping on coconut milk latte.

Mind racing with these questions : Will anyone listen? what would they think? Can you handle the criticism?

The Fear coming on strong after you signed the contract.

Then the olive skinned girl stopped thought of her love ones, there encouraging words saying you need to tell your story. It Help others, and save lives . We love you. Believe in you , don’t be scared.

And it was okay, she going to do this…she has to do it, she has to finally break her silence. It’s what she is chosen to do, she knew it her heart.

And she is , July 24 2018 with F*ck Fear a book she do co-authored.

Book Review: Ship It Author : Britta Lundin A must read ❀️ @brittashipsit

Tory Lanez – Luv is blaring in the background on the sultry holiday Monday that happened this past Monday in Canada πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦.

It’s summer time baby in Ontario. We love it, it’s hot and gorgeous.

So I took opportunity with dancehall, reggaeton, 70s classic rock, classical Spanish guitar and Italian music in the background to finish Ship it. (Please excuse my random music choices, I like almost all everything)

I am author myself . I promised myself upon entering this profession that I would read books oand support other female writers.

I came upon Britta’s book by accident. When I saw the synopsis and was like a book about fan fiction and a f/f romance…and thought , “C’est cool” as my French Canadian co workers say.

It looked super interesting and something I cannot relate to at all. The last time I read fan fiction I was 16 and it was only twice. I was obsessed with the OC . Adam Brody was my man in my mind, and I wanted him to have Ben’s body and Summer/Rachel was the women I aspired to be. Confident, sexy and can handle her men. I guess my “ship” would be Seth and Summer, I did not grow up with the internet (born in 1990). I was in my later teens 16 , when Facebook became popular. 19 when Twitter hit the scene and 22 when Insta and Tumblr came along.

I also never knew what “shipping” was in relation to fandoms until this past December and do know much about fandoms either.

How I feel about the book:

I am very opened mineded and thought this would be refreshing to read and I was not disappointed.

Turns out I could related more to characters in regards to not being really sure how to act in my first relationship when I was 14 and Forest in not getting fandoms and shipping etc. Nothing against it , just was not involved in it.

The love story between Claire and Tess is adorable and made my heart happy . I am very supportive LGBTQ πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ community and have close friends who are part of it. So I was happy to see another same sex love story line in books. I was a teenager in the years of 2003-2009, there were very little books with same sex story lines that I can think of on top of my head. So it’s great for the next generation to have a more representation in books.

Britta also does a great job in explain fandoms to the fandom illiterate (like myself) and the impact it has it’s members, that it can be literally quite life saving and the pressure that actors face that are part of these fandoms.

S/O to this bad ass female author for writing an amazing book that just the right mix of love, happiness, angst and drama. What a different, refreshing and enjoyable book. Thank you Britta πŸ™
