As I was sitting down to write an article about TownleyGirl's new The Emoji Movie collection, I realized that I had no idea what the word 'emoji' actually meant. I have had an iPhone since the 3rd generation and never once researched something that I use every day - MAJOR FAIL.
Being a #GirlBoss requires many, many skills but one of the most important was demonstrated above; the ability to own your faults.
1. Own Your Flaws and Inspire People with Your Imperfections.
Being a #GirlBoss comes with tons of responsibility and though we all try, nobody can be as flawless as Queen B. There are going to be days when the world feels too heavy on your shoulders and you fall short. On those days, it's important to remember that we're all just winging it, young queen.
Here's a secret your mom's not telling you:
From our eyeliner to our weekend plans - as women, we're ALL just winging it and doing out best - every, single day.
2. Treat Yourself, Don't Cheat Yourself.
Yes, you should eat kale. Yes, you should avoid soda. But, if there is a chocolate donut hanging around the kitchen, like the one seen on the pouch included in The Emoji Movie 8 Piece Set, it definitely has your name sprinkled on it. Treating your body right means being healthy, not hungry. Treating your mind right means being content, not convicted. You are worth dessert, young queen.
3. Try Not To Be So Emo.
The star of The Emoji Movie is Gene, a rambunctious multi-expression emoji who is on a mission to become "normal" aka a single expression. If you ask me, there is NOTHING normal about feeling one feeling all of the time, even happy, but anyway --
While life is full of a spectrum of emotions (and it is natural to feel each one), it is critical that you approach your feelings like watching cars pass on the road. You can either stand in the middle of the street and risk being run over or watch in peace from the sidewalk as each emotion cruises by.
Being a great #GirlBoss means making the smart choices - something you can only do if your emotions are in check.
4. If You Stay Ready, You Don't Have to Get Ready.
The Emoji Movie is a must-see for all young queens, starring Jailbreak - an extraordinary code breaking hacker, who uses a wristwatch and her brain to solve all of the problems in Textopolis. You have no idea how excited I am to see a lead female character who is not a damsel in distress.
Jailbreak and her remarkable watch stay ready at all times, which makes her the perfect wing-woman for Hi-Five and Gene. No matter the scenario, Jailbreak is prepared, and you can be too with TownleyGirl's The Emoji Movie 8 Piece set. The collection includes everything you need for a head-to-toe touch-up and packs up nicely in the adorable Treat Yourself Pouch (included).
The Emoji Movie premieres in theaters on July 28th, starring two of my favorite #GirlBosses; Maya Rudolph and Anna Faris. Before you buy your tickets to the weekend show, grab a few items from TownleyGirl's The Emoji Movie collection and get ready for the LOLs.
