Back to the topic at hand.

Let’s talk about change. We all have the ability to create change. The way you interact with others, the way you view the world, it all contributes to creating a better place for tomorrow. We all have magic inside us, we just need to let it out. So how do we initiate change?

We can initiate change with our actions. Be kind to others. Treat them with respect. Speak up when you witness injustice. Always remember that relationships are more important than money. Be awesome.

That is how you create change. Be your wonderful, caring self. We are all responsible for creating a brighter place for those that come after us. So get to it.

Trying new things: My first bout with Vegemite

Hello Lovelies!!

This is the first post for my new monthly feature about trying new things. The idea being I will try a new thing (activity, food, etc.) and report back. As a refresher, here is the scale I will be using when judging the new thing.

The Hilary Scale

I was inspired by my dear friend, Rosie, to try Vegemite. I was told I would probably not like it but I wanted to know for sure. So I did.

Here are a series of photos of me taking my first bite.

My final opinion of Vegemite?

It isn’t my thing. It was a bit salty and had a terrible after taste. I ate three bowls of popcorn after to cover up the taste (and because I was hungry).

So tune in next month for my next attempt at trying something new!!pink signature

I should try new things.. right?

Hello Lovelies!

So, I had this genius idea for a new feature here on Cutie Cameras. Every month I will try something new and report back. It could be a new drink, food item, activity, etc. Anything really.

I don’t really like doing new stuff. Well, at least not when it comes to food or drink. I know what I like and I stick to it. That is why I think this will be a good challenge for me. It will force me to stop being so boring and doing the same thing all the time. I need to live a little!

This will be the first month I am trying this feature out so bear with me. This could be a bumpy ride.

Regardless, it is a ride I am willing to take!

In honor of this big step here is a photo of me taking a duck fart shot for the first time. Soak it all up.

0425_001I had a really good after photo but I couldn’t find it.

Lastly, I will be including a scale in my posts about trying new things. We shall refer to it as the “Hilary Scale” or “The Scale”. I will use it to demonstrate my final vote on things.

The Hilary Scale

Lets get to it!

What do you think I should try? Leave a comment with some suggestions!

Don’t let anyone drown out your voice

I know it can be easy to allow our voices to go unheard. Maybe others speaker louder, are more vocal. We get shy or worry that  other’s won’t understand our thoughts and ideas. I want to encourage you to use your voice. When you see injustice in the world, speak up. When you see someone being bullied or ridiculed, use your voice. When you bear witness to inequality in the world, be it in media, news, work, or somewhere else, speak up.

We all possess power. We can use our voices to inspire change in our society.

“When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.” -Malala Yousafzai

Be a force in the world. Inspire change.
