That's such good news!

We don't want to live our lives with regret.
And these older women don't want us to, either! A London spa called Sanctuary surveyed young women about their stress, and found that 70% feel a ton of pressure to be perfect, and are burning themselves out as a result.
So, the spa enlisted the help of a few experienced ladies, to share their messages about what's really important in life.
These lovelies reminisced about the way they lived their lives, and brought up all the things they wished they'd done differently, like taking extra time with their loved ones, or allowing themselves to have more fun.
They stress to today's young women that it's important to live in the moment, because it's easier to enjoy your life that way.
Ch-ch-check out their wise words (below)!
We've spoken before about how ridiculous the modeling and fashion industries are…
And here's another example!
Nineteen-year-old model Agnes Hedengard has recorded a video calling out the modeling industry for saying she's "too big" despite having a BMI of only 17.5 — when anything below 18.5 is actually considered underweight!
The Swedish teen explains that when clients find out her measurements they no longer want to work with her, and that the main criticism from the industry is that her butt is too big and her hips are too wide.
Anyone with eyes can see that she's extremely toned and svelte!
Does every model have to have her bones visible to be considered "good enough" to get work?
Recently France banned models deemed too thin, in order to combat the major issue of eating disorders that plagues so many of these young women, and yet it doesn't seem to have been enough.
It's truly appalling to learn that girls like Agnes are considered "too big" to get work.
Watch Agnes explain in her own words in the clip (below)!
FCKH8.com is giving Photoshop the middle finger! Literally!
The clothing brand known for its mission of "arming thousands of people with pro-LGBT equality, anti-racism and anti-sexism T-shirts" unveiled their latest campaign, and they're standing up for women everywhere!
With a group of beautifully diverse ladies starring in the commercial, they're giving you every reason to forget those horrible beauty standards.
And all by stripping down to their underwear!
In fact, this is how FCKH8.com even describes their epic video:
Lily-Rose Depp has teamed up with photographer iO Tillett Wright for his latest photography campaign.
That's because the campaign, called the Self Evident Truths project, uses photographs to showcase people who identify — even if it's only marginally — as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer! The project's website explains:
"The Self Evident Truths project is a photographic document of 10,000 people in the USA that identify as ANYTHING OTHER than 100% straight – as in, if you are anywhere on the LGBTQ spectrum in ANY way, even 1% gay, we want to take your picture!"
On Sunday, the artist took to Instagram to share a sweet snap with Lily (above) that they took together for the campaign, captioning the precious pic:
"I'm so proud of my baby girl @lilyrose_depp. She decided she wanted to be in @selfevidentproject because she falls somewhere on the vast spectrum, and I couldn't be happier to welcome her to the family. She's a tiny gem of a good human.#prouduncle #weareyou"
And the famous teen isn't the only model-slash-actress to take part in the Self Evident Truths project!
Last year, Cara Delevingne snapped a selfie with iO for the campaign! Ch-ch-check it out (below)!
Ciera Swaringen could care less about the haters!
Ciera, who is just perfect for our #Kleanse Spotlight, was diagnosed with an EXTREMELY rare skin condition called giant congenital melanocytic nevus. The condition means Swaringen's body is completely covered in birthmarks and moles, a fate that would be difficult for any teenage girl. Ciera, however, is absolutely glowing with confidence and her philosophy on her condition will definitely leave you feeling inspired!!
While the high school graduate admits that growing up she struggled with bullies (a boy on her school bus once called her a "spotty dog"), she has found acceptance, saying:
"I'm so proud to be different, and at the end of the day, we all have something about us that's unusual, whether it's on the inside or the outside. Over time I've learnt to brush off negative comments and remember that most people stare and say cruel things because they're not used to seeing someone with my condition."
Preach, girl! We all have something unique about us!
Swaringen, who has found a supportive family, added:
"I remember when I started school my mum told me that my birthmarks were angel kisses - and that really stuck with me."
Aww!! What a beautiful analogy!
Based off all the photos of the 19-year-old that we've seen, it's clear that she's happy and full of love. Imagine how different the world would be if every young woman had this amazing level of confidence?!
