Instagram’s latest competitor? Snapchat is upping the ante with a new feature, Snapchat Stories. The album-like feature allows users to create a photo and video montage with a 24 hour life.

Multi-grain Cheerios and Big Brothers Big Sisters (a charity close to our hearts) are teaming up to raise awareness for Go Girls, an initiative aimed at promoting healthy bodies and healthy minds. This TV campaign takes an anti-diet approach to promoting balance and healthy living in young women, many of which are victims to pro-diet media – such a great initiative.

Choosing a career path in your 20s can be a stressful, often daunting process – with so many options, it can be difficult to know where to start. Natasha shares her insights and experience in her latest blog post at The Huffington Post. [Huffington Post]

Today marks International Day of the Girl Child, a day dedicated to raising awareness to the fact that girls across the globe lack equal access to education, healthcare, nutrition, and freedom. To celebrate and support the cause, we recommend watching Girl Rising – an uplifting film centred on the lives of eight inspiring girls from developing countries like Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Haiti, and India.
