Inspiration: In-Ear Translation, Strolling in Jamaica, Introversion

  1. I know this won't be everybody's cup of tea... but breast milk jewelry! I probably wouldn't trust someone else to make this for me, but what a unique way to commemorate a meaningful season of life!

  2. It's a smart earpiece language translator! It translates languages inside your ear! AND it has the capacity to translate what you're saying into other languages through your phone! WHAT! This is so amazing.

  3. What's that? A Black woman warrior comic book? Yes, please! It's called "NIOBE: She is Life," and is coming out this November. It's also the brainchild of the Hunger Games actress Amandla Stenberg. Thank you, Amanda!

  4. Cecile Emeke has gifted the world with such realness and rawness in her videos. The Strolling series, is a favorite of mine. In order to "connect the scattered stories of the black diaspora," it shares natural, conversational monologues of people of color across the world. Very worth the watch.

  5. I just think this is such a cute idea. I am 99% sure that I will have the children who draw outside of the paper, though. I'm also 100% sure I wouldn't buy this contraption. I bet it could easily be DIYed for way cheaper!

  6. What a glorious pin! I love my introverted-ness. This reminded me of a post I read the other day, Mathematical Word Problems for Introverts. Here's a good one: Larry’s Netflix account costs $10 per month. If, over the course of a year, Larry stayed home every Friday and Saturday night, how many times did he hit the CONTINUE WATCHING button? 😂😂😂

  7. I really loved this photo of a Brazilian woman with her triplets (one is further down in the picture than you can see). There's a lot of controversy about breastfeeding and formula — and about public and private breastfeeding, for that matter. I don't think there's a one-size-fits-all way to respond. As a doula, I hope to be able to educate mothers so that they can make an informed decision. And whatever fits them and their families, I hope that they can be confident and unashamed, like this mama.
