Celebrate yo'self!

Happy International Women's Day!

And what a great day it's been. Started the day catching up with a beautiful, talented, and kind lady and her cute bubba talking about life and inspiration! It was one of those conversations that was just really uplifting and I know I'll be referring back to it in times of need. So thank you, Donnally! I'm so glad we're friends!

Afterwards, I caught up with my good friend Joe and we sang the whole way to Cambridge, belting out all our old faves (High School Musical to R Kelly's Ignition. It was the mixtape), and just had a very good catch-up! Hooray for old friends who you don't see very often but you always just pick up where you left!

Spent the rest of the afternoon working on a little something to send to my Girl Gang! I am surrounded by amazing women and it's about time we celebrate each other! So holla at your homegirl over here if you want to be part of the squad. Shout out to all the ladies out there! I am most inspired by you!

It's been a great weekend on social media too.

It started with #BlackOutDay on March 6. Here's a great article explaining it if you're unfamiliar with the movement. My Tumblr dashboard and Twitter feed was filled with so many beautiful people. Selfies being reblogged and retweeted here and there and I have never seen cyberspace be filled with so much self-love and positivity in one go. It was beautiful.

Then there's The Dancing Man. I have been watching the story unfold online (this being the latest I could find) because body shaming is unfortunately something I'm familiar with. And it's incredibly humbling to see the internet stand up against bullying and body shaming. It's one of those instances that I am again absolutely in awe of social media. Absolutely humbling.

Lastly, I'm loving all the International Women's Day going around right now too. I am passionate about girls bringing girls up, supporting, and celebrating. This year's theme is Make It Happen - a phrase that I 100% support. It's 2015, we need to start believing that we are limitless and sometimes all we need to do to get those goals and dreams going is to just start. So make it happen this year.

So let's celebrate ourselves - whatever gender you identify with - this year! This is how change happens. This is how we make our mark.
