GabiFresh is here to save women from bikini shopping hell. The New Year brings with it a deluge of aspirational thinking that is meant to be positive but is actually inherently negative to one’s sense of worth. They are self-appointed reminders that we are less than, we are lacking. After the holiday season, months before the snow melts, women are subject to a barrage of “fitspiration," urging them to start on their “beach bodies." It is purely marketing, aimed at women precisely at the time when our...
We’ll be heading down to Washington, DC on January 21st for the Women’s March on Washington (special thanks to our bus sponsor, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab!) — and we'll be carrying signs.

Last night on The Daily Show, Trevor Noah joked about how this will be the first presidency where members of government will be receiving Trump’s thoughts at the same time as the general public — via Twitter.
