Inject some positivity into your day

Do you ever find yourself scrolling through Instagram, making yourself feel awful about how seemingly great and beautiful everyone else in the world is?

Well, we have the perfect anecdote for you. Step into the positive and heartwarming world of Recipes for Love, an Instagram page filled with colourful illustrations and life-affirming quotes. We are too often bogged down in the negative side of the internet and social media. Our brains are shrinking. We can't talk to people in the real world anymore. We’re all going to die alone. OK, you get my drift. That’s why Recipes for Love is the pick-me-up all women need, and deserve. Not only is the artwork beautiful in its own right, but the low-key feminist messages of self-worth and advice will put a smile on anyone’s face. The illustrations comprise women of all shapes, sizes, races, sexualities and cultures, showing them in their unique beauty and relevance. Here are a few to give you a spring in your step on this late summer’s afternoon:

Womxn are more likely to experience mental illness in their lifetime than men. I mean, can you blame us? This world we live in often makes it very difficult for us to sustain happiness. So many womxn struggle with mental health issues and it's nothing to be ashamed of. For those of you battling; please know that you're not alone ❤️. . . #recipesforselflove #selflove #selfcare #loveyourself #mentalillnessawareness #mentalhealth #youarebeautiful #smashthepatriarchy #hijab #hijabi #allbodiesaregoodbodies #youareperfect #fuckthepatriarchy #effyourbeautystandards #feminism #intersectionalfeminist #feminsta #feminist #zine #illustration #digital #drawing #adobe #design #graphic #art #womxn #love #yourself
