CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY

Today is International Women's Day, a day where we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. A day where we say well done for all you've achieved for us. Woman kind. 

So here's a little poem I jotted down to celebrate everything you are and to say let's be proud of ourselves, in every which way we come, we are amazing *nothing like a little self love on a Tuesday* ;) I am constantly bowled over by the amazing strong and talented women I meet every day, who I talk to, who I see struggle and carry on anyway. So this is dedicated to all you amazing women doing it your way. 


To all the movers, the makers, the hustlers, the shakers, 
To those who shout loud, who stand strong, and when needed those who quietly move on, 
To those who build empires, move mountains, push boundaries, 
raise babies, make memories and refuse to take no for an answer. 
You are the ladies paving the way for a new generation who are ready to play. 
Stand tall and stand proud for all that you are, 
Not what media says you should be or could be, 
but the you that is here, standing now and amazing.
You are a Woman.

Happy International Women's Day
