Raising Strong Girls
Many people who know me now, as an adult and a mom, I think would say that I have an outgoing personality. I say what is on my mind, and I am pretty much an open book. BUT that wasn’t always the case for me.
When I was going up, I was extremely shy and quiet and never said what was on my mind. I think college was a turning point for me. I wound up getting a job at a retail shop in SoHo, and I’d like to say it was those relationships formed, along with many others along the way that shaped who I am today. Especially in times like these, I feel so blessed that I was able to surround myself and learn from these strong and powerful women. I reflect on those times, because I am now raising two young girls and want them to always say what they have on their mind and feel confident with themselves.
I’m all about supporting brands that supports feminism and allows us to actually put it out there. Miss Annette fashion brand offers high quality, unique, comfortable and clean designs leaving room to focus on it’s agenda. I just love her swimsuits for my girls, and this will be our second year supporting her cool designs.
Gemma’s says “This Princess Saves Herself”.
And Siella’s “This Girl Can”.
While these suits are super cute and perfect for summertime, it is my job as mom to have these conversations with my daughters explaining to them what these sayings mean, and try to empower them to become strong girls and that are not afraid to speak their mind and know that they can be whoever they want to be! And I couldn’t be more proud of my who my little strong girls are becoming!
