The Leading Ladies In My Life + A Golden Giveaway!

Hello everyone!
As you probably know International Women's day was last Friday.
I love International Women's Day and the chance it gives us to celebrate one another.
I feel that we are at such an exciting age for women.
We are finally getting recognition for all we have done and we get to do some pretty amazing things because of it.

Growing up I never felt like being a girl was a disadvantage.
Not because I was told or shown differently, but because I had so many amazing women showing me that was untrue. 
My three older sisters, my mom, my grandmothers, my aunts, my teachers.
I am so grateful for the women who paved the way and fought for our rights.
And I am so grateful to have the opportunity to fight for a brighter future for the little ladies in my life.
My nieces hold such a special place in my heart.
Don't get me wrong, I love my nephews.
My nieces are just interested in things I can relate to.
Music, photography, fashion.
While my nephews favorites pass time is pretending to urinate on me...

My niece Stella is the gentlest, purest soul I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
She is so sweet she gives me a toothache.
For Christmas last year she asked Santa for a "real life violin "
What six year old has an interest in the violin?!
I know I didn't...
She loves to bake and create new foods. 
She wants to own her own bakery when she grows up.
She found out that I also love to bake and asked to come over and bake at my house.
On a Saturday night all she wanted to do was bake with me.
It made me so happy!

My niece Baylee loves life more than anyone I have ever known.
She loves to celebrate and is always looking forward to the next event.
She likes YouTube and is interested in videography and filmography.
Santa brought her a Polaroid camera and she takes better pictures at six than I do now...
She has always had an interest in becoming a doctor.
I recently asked her what kind of doctor she wants to be.
She said a baby doctor.
I asked "So you are going to take care of the babies?"
Her response.
"Nope. I'm going to bring them into the world."
Mic drop!

My niece Bella is eighteen months old and can only say a few words but, she is the most independent and feisty little thing.
She knows what she wants and I would advise you not to go against her wishes.
She is persistent and will do what it takes to get it. 
I think she will be a little fashionista.
She loves to spend the day trying on clothes.
She will bring me outfit after outfit to put on.
She loves to wear items from her big sister's closet and always makes sure to accessorize.
She also loves my phone.

I am completely inspired by my nieces.
I love how creative they are and that they dream big.
My goal in life is to encourage them to be whatever they want to be.
To try new things and explore all their opportunities.
I truly believe that they will change the world. 

All my love,

P.S. I am holding another giveaway on my Instagram.
It is a gorgeous gold Made By Mary necklace.
