For many decades, the media has idealized their image of the “perfect woman”, going so far as to photo-shop pictures of models to inhuman proportions. Culture dictates that looks are important. The message comes across to females of all ages and shapes that they do not measure up. For many women, this expectation can damage their self-esteem.
In recent years, a backlash has been building against the media’s message, and rightly so. Many women, along with some men, are speaking out, their message being that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. It is time for us to be comfortable in our own skin.
In the following video, presented by HLN, Amy Pence-Brown puts her message forth by stripping down to her underwear in the middle of an outdoor market. The response is heartwarming.
Everything is better with Cats! Even commercials. A couple of them I have seen before, but I never get tired of them because, cats! Hope you enjoy this video as much as I did. Thank you to Sunshine bright for bringing it to my attention!
Don’t you hate when this happens? You shop, go to the checkout, get out your wallet and, uh-oh, wasn’t there a 5, 10 or 20 dollar bill in there just yesterday? As the cashier is impatiently waiting, a sigh of relief escapes your lips as a credit card is there to pay with. Walking to the car, purchases in hand and still thinking about the missing cash (“Did I spend it on something? Did I put it somewhere else?”), you cannot remember where the money went.
The good news: It may not be your memory at fault! If you are a cat owner, there may be a thief right in your own home. Several cat owners were able to catch their felines in the act (I give you the following video as proof!) Just think – a potential windfall may be hidden away in nooks and crannies around your house! A thorough Spring cleaning can be so rewarding, even the kids will want to help!
There is an adorable thief (I mean, look at that face!) roaming around in Portland, Oregon named Snorri. While he takes may types of “goods”, he does seem to have a bit of a shoe fetish!

The following is his story – written by Eliza Murphy for Good Morning America:
A life of crime has turned one cat burglar, now appropriately nicknamed the “klepto kitty,” into an overnight Internet sensation.
Snorri, an orange tabby cat from Portland, Oregon, has earned notoriety for being the neighborhood shoe-napper, snatching up innocent soles form their owners and bringing them home.
The cat’s stealing problem got so bad that his owner, Gabbie Hendel, decided to take action, installing a “cat collar camera” on the feisty feline to help determine where the random objects were coming from.
“The weirdest thing he has stolen was a baby costume,” Hendel wrote to ABC News. “I believe it is a monkey costume for baby.” .instagram.com/snorrithecat
The camera was paid for by cat-lovers all over the country on a GoFundMe page and has successfully helped catch the cat’s sticky-pawed ways in action, allowing Hendel to more easily return the obscure belongings to their rightful owners.
Snorri isn’t snobby about what he chooses to cat-nap, either. He’ll take everything from shoes, to hats, stuffed animals and even gardening gloves. His personal favorite, however, is definitely flip-flops. .instagram.com/snorrithecat
“I think he is such a funny guy, so much character,” Hendel wrote. “I’m glad that others get a kick out of it!”Sometimes though, her cat’s peculiar hobby can be a bit too much to handle.
“It’s a little time consuming, I am a medical student, so we will see how long I can keep it up,” she explained.
The videos of Snorri’s shenanigans are so compelling that Hendel has created a YouTube channel and Instagram account for his newfound followers to stay entertained (and locate their missing items).Despite the extra work, Hendel has cared about Snorri since the day she found him shivering in a stairwell.
“I thought that if he was still there in the evening I would take him in and try to find his owners,” she recalled. “He was there when I got home, in the same spot, so I brought him in and fed him. He scarfed down some food and fell asleep upside down. Looks like he steals hearts as well as shoes!”
