Why Stranger Things is the greatest thing ever and how it empowers girls and break stereotypes

Stranger Things was the biggest and greatest surprise last year, and with this new season that was just released, Netflix has done it again. This show has rocked my life for a second time, and guys, this is not something that happens often. The first season, released last year 2016, was an ode to the 80’s and a hymn for nerds and outcasts. But this second time around, I couldn’t help but notice that what was a sidekick during season one, stomped into the room and stole the spotlight: GIRL POWER.

The Ultimate Bad Boy discussion | Throwback Monday

Who doesn’t like bad boys?

Now, be honest. Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Even if you’d like to deny it, bad boys have this something special that compels us to love them. As for the reasons why, that’s when this discussion comes into play. Why are bad boys so lovable? Why do we end up being a puddle of drool when we read about them?

Welcome to the ultimate bad-boy discussion.

Feminism, the f-word we should all talk about

Honey, we need to talk. There is something very important we must discuss and I don’t care it’s late or that you are tired after work. You see, a few weeks ago I finally read We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and besides nodding all my way through the short book, and falling in love with Chimamanda’s mind, I felt like this topic was one we really need to talk about. So what started as a review of the book, ended being a very lengthy and honest discussion about feminism. Very, very lengthy, I must say. Sometimes I have no control over my ranting, you know that. So to make it a little bit lighter I added some gifs and quotes from the book. But jokes aside, this IS important. And I ask you to read it, to the extent that you are capable of, all the ranting considered. But please, give it a try.

Guest post: Here’s to loving ourselves unconditionally and unapologetically.

I am thrilled to present you the first Guest Post on The Bibliotheque. Yes, you heard right. This is the beginning of a new section where you – yes, you – will be able to speak your mind and heart and use this blog as the last push you need to get to more people. But what makes today really special is not the new section opening, it’s the what we will discuss and the who being in charge of discussing.

Over a year ago, when I started my instagram account, I would have never imagined I was going to meet such amazing, kind and beautiful little creatures. Furthermore, I would have never imagined that I was going to connect at such strong level with someone. But don’t be mistaken, even if I have met a lot of great and talented people, only a few I consider actual friends. Even if we have never been standing in the same place at the same time, we still stand together in many different ways. We share passions, obsessions and worries. One of these little creatures is Marie. As well as me, she is a fierce advocate of self love, and as you may know I think it is super important to talk about body image and all the wrong and mistaken social standards we are constantly bombed with. So here’s Marie’s beautiful post about accepting and loving yourself and the importance of doing so unconditionally.

Thank you, Marie. You are a ray of sunshine.

Discussion: what the hell am I doing?

“Whatever you do, make sure it makes you happy.”

Funny words, huh? What an inspirational quote. One that is sold in posters and all sorts of parafernalia every day. One that is shouted and whispered on a daily basis. One that we are bombed with more than we realize. But one that involves a concept not so easy to grasp. Happiness.

Are you happy? How do I know if I am happy? How can one be happy?

But most importantly, what is happiness?
