Barbie Released A Doll Based On A Plus-Size Model (7 pics)

Ashley Graham is a beautiful plus-size model and Barbie has made a doll that matches her measurements and whose thighs touch... Yup, Barbie has come a long way. Ashley Graham is one of the most outspoken and gorgeous plus-size supermodels around. Barbie must think so too, because it just unveiled the Ashley Graham Barbie doll. Graham was gifted her doll at the Glamour Women Of The Year Summit. The doll was created with the same proportions as Graham. To make it, Graham sent Mattel a series of full body shots and then discussed proper hair and eye color with a team. The doll’s most important attribute? “The number one prerequisite … was that her thighs touched. I was like, ‘Guys, we can make this Barbie, but if her thighs don’t touch, she’s not authentic,” she told. Unfortunately, as of right now, the doll is just a one-off, and not available for purchase. But customers can purchase dolls from Barbie’s Curvy, Petite, and Tall collection, which it launched back in Jan

How the Trucking Industry is Changing

The trucking industry is always on the move, in more ways than one.  Its rapid transitions and adjustments are necessary to stay competitive and stay with the ever-growing consumer demands. There are a few changes coming to trucking that are worth noting. Even though, these changes are making a huge shift in the industry, trucking seems to be growing at a very rapid rate. Compared to before, you now have more competition, a price war to stay competitive and changing standards, too. Let’s look at those changes and how the industry is adapting to them in the coming years. New Truck Drivers and Management When there is such a widening gap of demand in relation to supply, one must expect the possibility of agencies lowering their standards to fill those voids. Truck driving used to carry a certain level of prestige, once upon a time.  We know it hasn’t been that way for quite a long time, but it doesn’t appear to be getting any better. This is due to several reasons, but probably the

Music is also a great way to start your day—pick something that puts you in a calm and confident state of mind while

5 Ways To Improve Your Company Website's Online Visibility

The number one challenge for most business websites is a lack of online visibility and traffic. No matter how great your content is, chances are very unlikely that anyone will accidentally stumble upon your company website. Here are a few actionable tips to help increase your online visibility and ultimately your bottom line. 1. Produce Linkable Assets Obtaining inbound links is key to improving your website’s online visibility and it’s easier to do so if you have content that is useful, shareable and worth linking too. It’s much more challenging to earn links to your website if you only have sales and service pages. A linkable asset may include an interesting infographic, a list of resources or perhaps the result of a unique study. The most effective linkable assets are interactive, relatable and have an emotional impact. If it’s not something you would feel proud sharing on your personal Facebook account, then it’s probably not a good linkable asset. 2. Optimize On-Page Elemen

Why Difficult Situations Help You Manifest Your Desires

Difficult situations are actually a call to go deeper into your truth and determine what you desire. The reason difficult situations are presented is to help you  align with more of what you want from life . By using your difficult situations to refine your desires, the Law of Attraction can then help bring your desires directly to you.   Using “Contrast” To Manifest Your Desires  You may have heard the word “contrast” in the personal development world. The word contrast is a a buzz term for situations that aren’t aligned with what we desire. The secret to manifesting when facing contrast is to simply acknowledge the contrast. The other secret is to not get caught up in feelings of unworthiness.  And also to not take responsibility for what the situation means about you as a person. So often when we manifest something undesired, we feel it’s reflecting back to us something bad about ourselves. This leads to getting caught up in a cycle of blaming ourselves or wondering how we nee

24 Things to Look for in Relationships We Know as Kids

What Makes Good Relationships? What are things to look for in relationships? It’s kind of personal. We all have certain things we look for in relationships over other things, like football fan or movie buff, but what about the deeper things that make love last? I knew more about dating when I was 10 than when I started dating years later. I was a nerdy kid: I loved reading more than playing dodge ball, wrote reports about whales and Abraham Lincoln for fun after school at a little table in my bedroom. And when I had my first neighborhood-boy crush at age 10, I made up a questionnaire for him to fill out to determine our compatibility. He was older than me, all of 11. I can’t recall if he passed or even filled it in. We did have a brief, awkward sort of half-kiss on my front porch. It ended shortly after that. It wasn’t him, it was me. I just wasn’t ready. I’d like to see that nifty survey-document – hand written on lined 3-ring notebook paper. It’d be fun to see exactly what I con

5 Simple Ways to Crush Hypothyroidism

I grew up often feeling tired and being slightly overweight, despite the fact that I barely ate and was very active as a kid. Years later I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and realized that there were a few more things that I needed to do to be healthy than just eating right and exercising. Hypothyroidism is a common endocrine disorder that results from deficiency of thyroid hormone. The thyroid is a small butterfly shaped gland that controls the way the body uses energy. This means that it control almost every organ in your body including the way your heart beats. The American Thyroid Association has stated that roughly 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease . The study also pointed out that women are 5 to 8 times more likely to suffer from this condition than men. The signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism usually vary from person to person, depending on the severity of the hormone deficiency. Common symptoms that most patients suffering from this condition usually
