Use your voice this weekend

Oh sweet ladies, it finally feels safe to say, albeit with bated breath, that summer has finally arrived in England. Time to flock to the parks, roll down the windows and soak up the glorious sun. One thing’s for sure, I no longer take those rays for granted.

Another thing I’m gaining a deeper appreciation for is this space, your space and all of the social outlets buzzing around. Y’all, it hit me like a ton of of bricks just the other day as I was knocking out my to-do list that, we have a strong + influential voice. A voice that can form opinions, cause something mundane to be viewed in a different perspective and shape worlds. It has caused us to rethink some of the ways we write around here and those changes will soon be reflected, hang tight.


Our challenge to you as we head into the weekend is simply this, take a moment to pause and reflect on how you can use your voice + platform to make a difference in your world. Is there something weighing on your heart that you just need to get off of your chest? Then make that call. Perhaps you want the world to know your passion or the way you think about x,y & z? Well get it jotted down and published, now-a-days we don’t have to wait for a book publisher to get our work out – we can hit publish and boom, instantly anyone can have access to your words. Sometimes writing a dose of encouragement and sticking it in the post box can change the trajectory of the receiver. Whatever you decide upon use the voice that you’ve been given to influence – we only have one life after all so make it count.

…Oh and if you have some downtime to browse the internet over the next few days, here are some things that you might enjoy…

Kate Hudson belts out her best 4th of July tribute, we say sign her up for the Super Bowl!

Word on the street says that the New Yorker will soon have a pay wall,  this article rounds up the things you should see before it’s blocked.

History repeats itself as we have another colour confusion on our hands. What do you think – pink or purple? #theshoe

I’m pretty sure we could all park ourselves here for some R&R, don’t ya think?

There’s a new app putting women on the map and you can help!

We’re excited about ‘Go Set a Watchman’ but even more giddy that Katie + Matt got to reunite, even if for just one small segment on Today. Swooning, love hearts, and all. Match made in co-hosting heaven they are.

From Arianna Huffington to Anna Wintour, these successful women let us in on their morning routine.
