ain’t it divine?

I am woman, hear me roar. W-O-M-A-N.

We know the words, we’ve heard them sung at countless bachelorette parties and regretful karaoke bars. We’ve banded together to fight crime, stretch marks, and panty lines. Women are powerful, they are young…heartache to heartache…(take it away, Pat Benetar!) Unlike most men, women also love to chat, to share in each others’ pains, joys, laughter and tears. We can last for hours off of a buzz from the latest gossip sesh, our hearts pounding and our blood flowing upon hearing what he/she wore and who he/she was with. I can only guess the “rag mags” subscription quota is overwhelmingly X chromosome based. We are a force to be reckoned with, and our constant search for an outlet has been the driving motivator behind countless magazines, blogs, tv networks and websites….

One such website, DivineCaroline, is all about empowering women to embrace and share their lives through their words. It’s a website dedicated to its readers by being written by its readers. Want to know a bit more? Check out this section from the site:

 
Who’s Caroline? And what’s so Divine about her?
 
We knew early on that we wanted to use a woman’s name. It so happens that one of our founders has a dear friend whose name is Caroline. She’s a warm, smart, adventurous woman who you’d like instantly. “Caroline” rhymes with Divine – a word that describes every single woman we know who’s working to compose a life. So we went with it. But the site isn’t about any “one” woman. It’s about every woman and the bonds that connect us even though we’ve never met.

“DIVINE” ISN’T ABOUT BEING PERFECT.

We don’t know any perfect women and if we did, we probably wouldn’t want to hang around with them. At DivineCaroline, you’ll be spending time with women who embrace the fact that life isn’t always easy or beautiful or fair. Our dream is to give you a place to come together and express yourselves. What brings you joy. What breaks your heart. Makes you giggle. What pisses you off. Confuses you. Entertains you. What keeps you strong. And if all that sounds too heady, remember we’re also discussing stuff like sketchy relatives and good kissers.

 Sound interesting? What I love about the site is the breadth of topics. Unlike some women-centered web pages, DivineCaroline doesn’t stay focused on the big hitters, like hair, make-up, sex. It continues on past those bases to hit topics like politics, money, and car reviews. Stuff we women normally don’t gab about…I mean, when was the last time you sat around with the girls on a Friday night and talked carburetors? (Oh, and I had to look up how to spell that, fyi…and also to find out what it meant….) On this site, you can! Granted, I’ll be sticking to topics I DO know about, but the fact that it isn’t taboo to shoot the breeze about stocks and bonds, well, that just makes my lipsticked mouth turn up in a smile 🙂

And you know what else? You can easily contribute! Want to share an emotional essay on parenting or showcase the latest trip you went on? Simply write it up and submit it! By subscribing to the site, you are free to talk, spill, vent, chitchat, etc. to your heart’s content. Here’s how you can get involved.

So, do you need some new dish for your next lady’s luncheon? Head on over to DivineCaroline and scoop some up!

 

hearts and girly hugs,

  1. ooh it’s like a women’s mag, but online and more interactive. i like it! i like the article about brands that are making a comeback. I haven’t been yet, but I’ve heard the blog world talking about Talbots and Chicos turning into an Ann Taylor/J. Crew competitor. I am intriuged! And cute crocs? I never thought i’d use cute and crocs in the same sentance. I’m glad to see these brands are all branching out of the “tacky mom” target market 😉

    • yeah, I like the interactive part…it makes it more personal! and I need to check out those stores! I”m looking for a professional, yet stylish white dress….one that ISN’T see-through! And I know stores like that have a better selection for stuff like that….

      haha the only time I’ve ever worn crocs was when I worked at camp in the summer time…they were perfect for that environment! Other than that…I’m not sure where I’d wear them?? haha
