THE SUNDAY POST #10

001. Happy International Women's day everybody! Year on year greater improvements are made towards gender equality, and in the last few years especially, IWD has been more of a celebration of the positives than a reminder of the negatives. This past year has been significant in terms of raising awareness for women's rights, we've had the #HeForShe movement, as well as #ChangeTheRatio, #banbossy, #WeAreSilent#YesAllWomen and countless others. This years theme is 'Make it Happen', which calls for more than awareness, it calls for action. Have a look on the IWD website to see what you can do to make the future brighter for our children, and their children.
Here's to strong women. 
May we know them. 
May we be them. 
May we raise them.
002. This week has been a good clean eating week; I've had minimal carbs, filling up on protein and veg instead and drinking lots of green tea. I've been to the gym three times this week, as well as doing yoga at home. I did end up eating out twice though, and whilst I went for healthy-ish options (such as a bunless burger with extra salad) I want to try and avoid eating out this week.
003. Today has been a bit of a pamper day; think face masks, a hot bath and moisturising with this Aveeno daily moisturising lotion. I was also super excited to receive this Inika face in a box kit, which I'll be testing from tomorrow. Keep your eyes peeled for reviews soon! 
004. One of my dearest friends lent me this book, The Long Goodbye, which I'm looking forward to starting tonight. My other best friend is Romanian, and they have a tradition of giving Martisor (a red and white ribbon to be worn around the wrist and a little trinket) to celebrate the arrival of spring. How cute is this little ladybird brooch?
005. I'm watching Gossip Girl again (maybe for the fourth or fifth time?) and I'm pretty sure it's been the downfall of my university work this week. What has everyone else been watching recently?

    1. It does, it's amazing to see how things have changed since the first IWD in the early 1900's. I've really been enjoying using it so far x
