International Women's Day - We are all Wonderwomen!
Happy International Women's Day ladies! We are ALL Wonderwomen! Today is all about us. Today is the day we should make an extra effort to love, build up and encourage each other!
I wanted to write a post to encourage you and me to look back at our greatest achievements and pat ourselves on the back for a job well done. It's easy to forget that even though we might not yet be where we want to be, we are definitely not where we were. I don't know about you, but it's been a long week, and I'm excited for today to be a day of encouragement!
To begin, I am sharing a round of some of my favorite photos throughout the years that make me feel the most beautiful!
Sometimes we just need to remind ourselves that we are strong and beautiful!
Let's all take a moment and enjoy the fact that for the first time in history, 27 Plus Size Models walked the runway during New York Fashion Week. The event was established in 1943, and it takes place twice a year; yet NYFW FALL/WINTER 2017 marked the first time plus size models were represented in larger numbers.
Michael Kors made history as the first mega label to cast a plus size model - Ashley Graham.
Prabal Gurung followed Christian Siriano's example and is now designing for curvy women with Lane Bryant.
All this is extremely encouraging! It serves as a reminder to women of all sizes that they are beautiful and accepted!
Last month I saw this quote, and it almost brought tears to my eyes because the feeling is mutual. I hope it encourages you as well:
and I will leave you with this...
