How fluent are you in emoji? At Small Girls we pride ourselves in our clever emoji speak, so we were pretty stoked when we discovered this article and this fun quiz from The New York Times to test our emoji fluency.
Turns out 90% of the Small Girls are “Emoji Whisperers” (woohoo!), what did you get?
In case you missed it - We’re dancing with Jordyn Jones and our client, Zara Terez on Thursday night!

The conference “[brought] together leaders from a variety of fields, including Tory Burch, Katie Couric, and Julianne Moore to join hosts, Arianna Huffington and Mika Brzezinski, for a conversation about their own experiences and steps they’ve taken to live a more sustainable, fuller and more impactful life.”
Here are a few of our takeaways from the event:
Bianca: Arianna Huffington is my spirit mentor (as is her sister Agapi Stassinopolous)- and I think the best part for me was to be able to bring some of our team to experience something that I’ve been reading about and trying to sprinkle into Small Girls culture, for themselves, IRL. Hearing from the multiple speakers and hosts just helped back my practice in taking care of oneself in order to increase productivity and live a happier/healthier life. In starting Small Girls I’ve experienced both the long hours/burnout and the other side of the spectrum of being too free and anti-structure so-to-speak. There’s a balance to be achieved with working hard but also taking the time to meditate, reflect and understand oneself both in and out, mentally and physically. Sometimes it takes people re-iterating these things to remind yourself to stay on track, like affirmations from those who have succeeded with such practice.
The conference was also a tremendous reminder that, while career is important, you can’t let it become your identity. Mika Brzezinski from Morning Joe even said, ”When I got fired, the first thing I thought to myself was, thank god I didn’t forget to get married and have kids.” I absolutely love what I’m doing with my career but it was a good reminder that in the grand scheme of life, it’s not everything.
Carley: I really loved Julianne Moore’s insight on forming large, long term goals, but keeping your day-to-day goals that ladder up and help you achieve it an arms length away, that way you feel like you’re accomplishing and succeeding.
Annie: The most intriguing of the four Thrive elements, in my opinion, is Giving: “loving, caring, empathy and compassion, going beyond ourselves and stepping out of our comfort zones to help and serve others.” Go Getters Are Good: Go-Givers Are Better Brad Meltzer talked about writing your own legacy and the importance of living a life of service - Always being aware of the needs of others and your ability to make a difference in the world. For me, this message really put life in perspective.
