Dreamy feminist pins by Punky Pins X Mel Stringer

As anybody who knows me is already fully aware, I adore wearing my feminism for the whole world to see. That means T-shirts with boobs on them, slogans that smash the patriarchy and brands that support women (instead of just pretending to). So, when I heard about the new Punky Pins X Mel Stringer collaboration in all of its body posi glory, I was more than a little excited*. 

If you haven't heard of these two absolute powerhouses yet, then your online feminist life isn't complete. Mel is an Australian based artist who creates self-love filled illustrations that don't shy away from nipplesfat or the fact that everybody has shit days. Basically, she's the antidote that we all need to the media's constant policing of the female body. Punky Pins are an equally badass brand who  make pins that are impossible not to fall in love with. I mean, who wouldn't want to have a "cuterus" on their denim jacket? Together they've created what can only be described as the most adorable way to remind yourself daily of how awesome you and your body are.


The collection contains 8 pins in total, with each being as sassy as the next. Yay for a collaboration that celebrates bodies that aren't just what you see in Vogue (thin, white women who stay quiet about important issues for the sake of being liked). And double yay for reinforcing the fact that you can be both feminist and feminine through its use of gorgeous pastel shades and oversized bows.

I was lucky enough to be sent the whole collab and my personal favourites are Chubby Mermaid, I Am Beautiful and Lola. I think that Lola particularly spoke to me as I'm a strong advocate for not being ashamed to cry until you have mascara all over your face, but picking her kind of felt like picking a favourite child. They're all dreamy. Plus, as well as being absolutely beautiful to look at, they're extremely high quality. I was pretty shocked by how heavy my parcel was when it arrived, to be honest. Add in the fact that they don't drop off as soon as you pin them to something and it's not hard to see that they're well worth the £7 each.


If you want to get your hands on them, then you're in luck because Punky Pins sent me the whole collection to give to one of you lovely people. Aren't they total babes? That means that you can win all eight of these body posi pins, worth a total of £56, by simply completing the steps bellow and keeping your fingers crossed.

Good luck and I can't wait to send these cuties to one of you soon!
