LizzLoves International Women’s Day March 8, 2011

Today is the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day. Women across the globe are celebrating accomplishments throughout history that have positively altered the paths of women everywhere, from suffragist sisters and business women, to scientists and fashion icons.  Check out the global events for women on the International Women’s Day website here.

 

Maybe you don’t have time or funds to attend a pro-women celebration today, so, instead, take a moment out of your day to honor the women in your lives who have inspired and shaped you. Maybe it’s your mother, your aunt, a teacher, a CEO or even a celebrity. Give them a call, send them a note or remember them in your meditations/prayers/thoughts in a special way.

 

I have many amazing women in my life, and if you’re reading this, it’s likely that you are one of them. So, I thank you, sisters, for supporting my dream by reading, supporting and passing on my blog. Blessings to you all! ❤

LizzLoves the Little Pink Book September 28, 2010

As I am in transition right now, I decided to consult some books for inspiration, support and knowledge. One of the first books I turned to was Practically Posh: The Smart Girl’s Guide to Glam Life by my friend Robyn Moreno. This book is a great read: full of both fun and useful tips for your career, your home and even your travels and social life.

One of the little tidbits she mentioned in the career section was a women’s business magazine called Pink. Pink’s most recent manifestation is as Little Pink Book, an online magazine and community. LPB is full of tips on how to get ahead in your career, while also maintaining a healthy and happy work/life balance (the almighty goal for many of us!).

Little Pink Book also empowers women by providing links to other women-powered organizations as well as sponsoring conferences that feature successful women from whom attendees can glean valuable lessons.

I think I’m going to sign up for their newsletter so I can stay up to date with the nuggets of womanly wisdom they’re dishing out.

Thanks to CEO Cynthia Good and her staff for empowering business-minded women everywhere!
