See Beyoncé, Taylor, Oprah + More Famous Women as Emoji

We all use emoji to get our point across better (or because we don’t feel like using actual words). But too often there’s one missing from the endless keyboard that we feel is required (tacos, anyone?). No matter how diverse/normal the keyboard has expanded to these days, there could always be more. You know, like a Beyoncé or an Oprah for those days when you really want to text “Who run the world? Girls.” with one tap. Introducing… femoji, powerful women in emoji form.


Makers, a platform aiming to be the largest and most dynamic collection of women’s stories, released a group of strong women emoji to push Apple to do better in its emoji library. The company noticed there are plenty of male emoji — not including our Bromoji — doing tasks like swimming, walking or riding a bike and even working jobs as a police officer or a construction worker. But the female counterparts were only visualized as a princess, a bride or a geisha and taking part in activities like salsa dancing, getting a haircut or dressing up in a bunny costume.

To change that view and promote Makers’ motto “you have to see it to be it” among the young girls who are using emoji the most, Makers created an assortment of superstar ladies like Oprah, Beyoncé, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, astronaut Mae Jemison and police officer Val Demmings for girls to visualize who and what they can become. Not only were those working gals transformed by Makers onto our iMessages but so were famous ladies like Mindy Kaling, Taylor Swift and Lena Dunham. We think this is worth a group text to your besties right about now.

Which femoji is your current fave and who would you like to see turned into an emoji? Let us know in the comments.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
