Apparently it’s both.  Chinese culture recognizes Ram, Sheep, and Goat as all proper translations for “yang”- the mandarin term for this year’s animal symbol.  As yang is the masculine half of the Taoist yin yang, you may assume our little goat/sheep/ram is male, but 2015 is actually a female year. Could we be in for some peace, tranquility, and love?  Hope so.

Here is a picture of “Yang” from Streetfighter.  Pretty sure this is what my year will look like.

American Eagle get’s “REAL.” #UnretouchedAds #AerieREAL

o-AMERICAN-EAGLE-UNRETOUCHED-570American Eagle Outfitters has launched a Spring 2014 campaign using un-airbrushed / un-retouched ads. It’s a powerful statement about body image from a brand who’s demographic is 15-21 year old girls-that age range when your body and all of it’s changes is still a bit of a mystery.  Kudos AE.  With more campaigns like these, I hope our young ladies can shake off that feeling of being flawed, and realize that they are flawless.
