International Women's Day

Today, Tuesday March 8th is International Women's Day. All over the world there are events happening that celebrate women, and their accomplishments. This is pretty amazing when you think about it - there will be one day where women across the globe will be devoting their energy towards this single celebration! That is a very powerful thing.

{Some amazing women in my life - my Nana, my mother, and my Grandma - thank you all for being such strong role models, and for all the love & support you've shown me!}

ecocessories is proud to supporting Ethik BGC's Women Day Event - retailer of ecocessories jewelry in Montreal, Quebec - with the donation of a door prize. This amazing event will feature an eco fashion show by the designers of Ethik BGC - a collective of over 40 women entrepreneurs from around the world.

As for me, I will be spending International Women's Day with one of the strongest women I know, my best friend Ashley. Tonight, we're going to see one of my business idol's speak - Arlene Dickinson of Dragon's Den. Arlene is one of Canada's top business leaders, and she comes from humble beginnings. I can't wait to hear her story and be inspired by her path to success.

How are you spending International Women's Day? If you don't have a specific plan, maybe just take a minute to reflect on and appreciate the accomplishments of women in your life
! Happy International Women's Day!
