Life advice you need from Furiosa

If you haven't seen Mad Max cancel all your plans and go right now. If you have, then you already know that Imperator Furiosa is one serious badass. The movie is basically one giant, epic car chase featuring her telling other people what to do. She's the kind of character that would probably have some really good life advice.

Don't let anyone mess with you

It might be tempting to be conciliatory when people are rude or try to push you around. But being likeable doesn't mean people should get to take advantage of you or treat you like garbage. Shut that down.

Feel free to forgive... or not

You're allowed to forgive people for their jerkish behavior (she decided to bring Max on the War Rig after all). First imoressions aren't everything, and if someone changes you can decide to accept it and move on. But that's up to you. If you receive an apology that doesn't feel genuine, you have the power to walk away.

You can be tough

Whoever said that women can't be tough has clearly never had the privilege of being punched in the face by Furiosa. She is fierce and ruthless and she does not apologize for it. She lives in a brutal world and she does not intend to let it take her down without a fight.

You can have empathy, too

So many narratives tell us that we can't be heroes without being frigid and unfeeling, disconnected from the world. Furiosa calls BS on all of that. She has empathy for the Wives, who ask her for help. She has love for the women that raised her, and hope for the future.

You are entitled to your anger

Say it with me: anyone that invalidates my feelings of anger because they are distasteful or inconvenient is getting left in the dust. I know it's a mouthful, but your feelings, and especially your anger when you've been wronged, are valid.

Ait Ben Haddou Kasbah
The ksar, a group of earthen buildings surrounded by high walls, is a traditional pre-Saharan habitat. The houses crowd together within the defensive walls, which are reinforced by corner towers. Ait-Ben-Haddou, in Ouarzazate province, is a striking example of the architecture of southern Morocco. Located in the foothills on the southern slopes of the High Atlas in the Province of Ouarzazate, the site of Ait-Ben-Haddou is the most famous ksar in the Ounila Valley. The Ksar of Aït-Ben-Haddou is a striking example of southern Moroccan architecture. The ksar is a mainly collective grouping of dwellings. Inside the defensive walls which are reinforced by angle towers and pierced with a baffle gate, houses crowd together - some modest, others resembling small urban castles with their high angle towers and upper sections decorated with motifs in clay brick - but there are also buildings and community areas. It is an extraordinary ensemble of buildings offering a complete panorama of pre-Saharan earthen construction techniques. The oldest constructions do not appear to be earlier than the 17th century, although their structure and technique were propagated from a very early period in the valleys of southern Morocco. The site was also one of the many trading posts on the commercial route linking ancient Sudan to Marrakesh by the Dra Valley and the Tizi-n'Telouet Pass. Architecturally, the living quarters form a compact grouping, closed and suspended. The community areas of the ksar include a mosque, a public square, grain threshing areas outside the ramparts, a fortification and a loft at the top of the village, an caravanserai, two cemeteries (Muslim and Jewish) and the Sanctuary of the Saint Sidi Ali or Amer. The Ksar of Ait- Ben-Haddou is a perfect synthesis of earthen architecture of the pre-Saharan regions of Morocco. Criterion (iv): The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou is an eminent example of a ksar in southern Morocco illustrating the main types of earthen constructions that may be observed dating from the 17th century in the valleys of Dra, Todgha, Dadès and Souss. Criterion (v): The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou illustrates the traditional earthen habitat, representing the culture of southern Morocco, which has become vulnerable as a result of irreversible socio-economic and cultural changes Integrity (2009) All the structures comprising the ksar are located within the boundaries of the property and the buffer zone protects its environment. The earthen buildings are very vulnerable due to lack of maintenance and regular repair resulting from the abandonment of the ksar by its inhabitants. The CERKAS (Centre for the conservation and rehabilitation of the architectural heritage of atlas and sub-atlas zones) monitors, with difficulty, respect for the visual integrity of the property. Authenticity (2009) In comparison to other ksour of the region, the Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou has preserved its architectural authenticity with regard to configuration and materials. The architectural style is well preserved and the earthen constructions are perfectly adapted to the climatic conditions and are in harmony with the natural and social environment. The large houses in the lower part of the village, with well conserved decorative motifs, are regularly maintained. The construction materials used still remain earth and wood. The inclination to introduce cement has so far been unsuccessful, thanks to the continued monitoring of the «Comité de contrôle des infractions» (Rural Community, Town Planning Division, Urban Agency, CERKAS). Only a few lintels and reinforced concrete escaped its vigilance, but they have been hidden by earthen rendering. Particular attention is also paid to doors and windows giving on to the lanes, to ensure that the wood is not replaced by metal. Protection and management requirements (2009) Protection measures essentially relate to the different laws for the listing of historic monuments and sites, in particular the Law 22-80 concerning Moroccan heritage. The Ksar of Ait-Ben-Haddou currently has a five-year management plan (2007-2012). This management plan is the result of two years of reflection and workshops involving all the persons and institutions concerned with the future of the site, in particular the local populations. The recommendations of this plan are being implemented. Furthermore, two management committees have been established (a local committee and a national one) in which all the parties are represented and cooperate in decision-making. As well as managing the property, CERKAS ensures coordination in the implementation of this management plan. visit our site for more informations...

Human Connection More often than not, customers are looking for brands that genuinely care about them and make them feel heard. Therefore, brands with an established range of BBW lingerie can connect with people far and wide. Not only does this mean great things for the company's valuation and success, but it also builds a human connection. Always ensure that you opt for brands that provide a complete wardrobe of BBW lingerie to choose from. Keeping Up With the Times In today's era, things are changing fast.

All the brands that have been vocal about the same have managed to create a largely positive impact. It also goes to show how body positivity is indeed being spoken about and accepted. This in itself is a great stride forward. Staying True To Yourself For so long, women had to succumb to the 'one-size-fits-all' mentality. With BBW lingerie, things are changing for betterment. You can now wear everything that you ever wanted. Say hello to bustiers, garters, bralettes, and so much more. Sounds lovely, right? If yes, then it's time for big beautiful women to take center stage. Factors to Choose the Best BBW Lingerie Buying BBW lingerie can sometimes be quite daunting, especially the first time around. Here are some tips that will help you on your journey! Hunt For A Place with Options Some stores tend to showcase just a handful of pieces in the name of BBW lingerie. Ultimately, this shouldn't be your first choice since you'll soon run out of options. Therefore, look for a place with a range of different pieces. This will ensure that you only end up buying what you're genuinely interested in. Make it a point to never settle for less! Stepping Out Of Your Comfort Zone Sometimes, your BBW lingerie style may turn out to be limited or repetitive. This may make buying lingerie seem even more challenging. In that case, it's always best to explore as far and wide as you can. Don't be afraid to look more eccentric and trendier. Opt for more colors as opposed to nude and black BBW lingerie.

Getting fitted regularly and choosing the correct cup size can make you look your best self. Love Your Body! The most important of all is to celebrate your curves. While that is a process, you must flaunt your BBW lingerie as boldly as you can. Most importantly, don't try to use lingerie as a way to cover your body. The time to look down upon beautiful and curvy bodies is over! No matter how many sets you have to try on, stay calm, and enjoy the process. Let it highlight and accentuate all of your beautiful parts. Never shy away from owning your body relentlessly.
Emily Blunt Has A Girl-Crush
So it seems Emily Blunt has a little girl-crush... But on who? Charlize Theron, naturally. It's no surprise Blunt has a strong admiration for the gorgeousness that is Theron. The two have just completed working together on the sequel to 2012's hit movie, Snow White and the Huntsman. From interviews, the two seem very fond of each other. "It was so much fun," Blunt told the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's grants banquet at the Beverly Wilshire hotel. "I loved working with all those people and Charlize is my new girl crush, for sure." Even Blunt's husband, John Krasinski, chimed in, "She's my new girl crush, too. She said I'm allowed to say that." Absolutely adorable. The couple has been married since 2010 and have a daughter named Hazel. They also share an environmentally friendly $2 million dollar mansion in Ojai, California just outside of Los Angeles. But Blunt jokingly corrected her husband, "You don't have a pass yet, we'll discuss that later." Theron just turned 40 and looks like she hasn't aged a day. Mirror, Mirror, on the wall, Who's the fairest of them all? Charlize Theron, of course. She made sure to celebrate the big 4-0 with many of her famous friends which included Blunt and Krasinski, and Chelsea Handler. Though Jennifer Anniston and Justin Theroux were invited, the two were off on their honeymoon in Bora Bora with best friend Courtney Cox. The celebration took place in West Hollywood as the stars arrived looking very casual but with gifts in hand. You'd think celebrities don't give gifts since they're fully capable of buying anything they want themselves. Here's a picture of Blunt and Theron on set together. Blunt plays Theron's "evil younger sister" in the film that is supposed to be release with Universal Pictures on April 22, 2016. Chris Hemsworth, Jessica Chastain, and Sam Claflin are some of the other fellow costars. The two women joked, "It was a total queen-off. There were two crowns on set and you don't want that." It looks like they're enjoying the spotlight as the leading ladies. The movie actually got rid of Snow White entirely which means Kristen Stewart did not reprise her role. Kinda odd for a movie that has the character in its title. Stewart has recently gotten a lot of press revolving around her sexuality but she's out and proud and recently revealed in an interview that she's "not hiding". She suggests fans to Google her if they are so concerned to know her sexual orientation. Regardless, we hope her relationship with her ex-costars still remains strong. Are you excited for the movie!?
Filipino artist Eisen Bernardo combines magazine covers with classic art
Eisen Bernardo unites classical and modern in his latest project "Mag + Art", combining contemporary magazine covers with classic portraits by artists like Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, and John Singer Sargent. (It's sort of strange how well some of these blend in with one another!) I'm not quite sure of the statement the artist is trying to make. Are we likening Hollywood celebrities to the muses of some of the most esteemed fine artists? Or was this just to point out coincidences? Either way, these images are extremely amusing to look at! --------------------------------------------------------------- Photo 1: Natalie Portman, W Magazine May 2005 + "Portrait of Frances Sherborne Ridley Watts" by John Singer Sargent Photo 2: Prince, Billboard Magazine January 2013 + "Portrait of Theodore Roosevelt by John Singer Sargent" Photo 3: Kirsten Dunst, Esquire Russia February 2012 + "Good Companions" by Vittorio Reggianini Photo 4: Robert Pattinson, Vanity Fair Italy March 2010 + "The Skater (portrait of William Grant)" by Gilbert Stuart Photo 5: Gwen Stefani, InStyle Magazine April 2010 + "The Letter" by Auguste Toulmouche Photo 6: Katherine Heigl, Harper's Bazaar Ukraine August 2010 + "Rita Granadina" by George Owen Wynne Apperley Photo 7: Prince William, Vanity Fair Spain April 2011 + "Portrait of Monsieur M," William-Adolphe Bouguereau Photo 8: Gwen Stefani, InStyle Magazine November 2011 + "Dolce Far Niente" by John William Godward Photo 9: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Esquire Malaysia + "Frieda y Diego Rivera" by Frida Kahlo Photo 10: Charlize Theron, W Magazine February 2012 + "Poker Night (from A Streetcar Named Desire)" by Thomas Hart Benton
