    Celebrating International Women’s Day with Mon Amie

    As a woman and full believer in the power behind our gender, this day, International Women’s Day, is one of the most beautiful of the entire year.  There are TONS of events throughout the world dedicated to celebrating women, can you believe it? Fun runs, festivals, conferences, you name it – they’re out there! IWD2018 yall!

    Think about the movements that have taken fire as of late – the Time’s Up movement, Press for Progress, Me Too, etc. Each of these has given voice to women throughout the world – saying the TIME IS UP for gender oppression, discrimination, sexual harassment and assault – all of the abominations women have endured throughout the ages. The TENDENCY IS WRONG! How powerful a statement that is.. the tendency to expect less from us, the tendency to tell us how we should live, act, dress, dream, the tendency to put us in an all encompassing box of less.

     

    We have fought with blood, sweat, tears, and even our lives to gain the opportunity to vote, voice in our own healthcare, bodies, and wombs, who or if we marry at all, put a stop to sexual and domestic violence, the right to an education, and raise awareness to the global preponderance of sex trafficking, female genitalia mutilation, or any form of bondage or oppression. Females have said enough to the unrealistic expectations placed on our gender when it comes to body image – for brands and companies to embrace women of all color, race, creed, size, shape, age, etc. Women are fearlessly breaking the gender norms and stomping out that rudimentary “women belong in the kitchen” mentality. YES to our sheroes!

     

    I’ve talked to you guys before about my love for Mon Amie and their dedication to serving the greater needs of the world. Each sale of their watches contributes to a different philanthropic ideal: hunger, education, opportunity, etc. I’m partnering with them once more to promote the #MonAmieforShe movement! The gorgeous black leather watch you see me wearing in the photos below represents education. Purchase of the watch affords school supplies for an entire classroom! Isn’t that incredible?! The face is mother of pearl, with adorable shooting stars flecked across the sheeny sky. Reach for the stars, am I right? You can also check out their grey leather watch with little butterflies dancing across the face. This watch provides financial literacy training for 10 women! Again, pulling women from situations of despair into a promising future – I love love love that! You can track your charitable impact and more by visiting their website!

     

    Consider the women across the world – the difference an education, an opportunity, freedom to prosper can make in her life! This video really puts it in perspective – the difference just a little bitty contribution can make in one life! I have the freedom to pursue my education, my hopes, my dreams – every woman should! What does this day mean to you? Do you have any special stories, women, triumphs you hold on to? Share them with me and each other! And on that note, Happy International Women’s day to all of you beauties, you’re all SHEROES to me! IWD2018 – Do good. See good. Share good – Mon Amie.

      I love how there is a day to celebrate women nationally. Women are incredible, strong humans. Everyday we should be celebrated but I am glad that there is one day like today to focus on it. Cheers to all the beautiful woman in the world!

      I love your outfit and the watches from Mon Amie! 🙂 And I love how women are being celebrated all over the world! I think we should all honor and respect women more because we have worked very hard to get where we’re at right now, to make things right for everyone.

      Marvelous dress, everything you have up there compliments anything with you and you can even top it off with a genuine smile! We’ve come far from how we were before as women, I think it’s simply time for us to just go steady with this balance in life and never forget to teach the next generation how to continue with our perspective.

      Happy International Women’s Day to you! For me it’s a day to celebrate femininity and women strength, and it is very much associated with my mother, and all the mothers in the world.

    23. March 10, 2018 / 9:24 pm

      The outfit, your hair, the watch…all of it’s amazing!

    24. March 11, 2018 / 11:26 am

      I love to hear about companies that are doing good in the world, not just looking to make a profit. Their watches are simple yet stylish. Love the tan one best.

    25. March 13, 2018 / 11:02 pm

      I’m loving the brand that you partnered with, that’s so cool that they support so many awesome charities through their different watches! Perfect for international women’s day!
