International Women’s Day has always been a big ideal in our Russian household. As far as I remember it wasn’t so much about female empowerment but more about being treated like queens for the day and I honestly don’t think it un-feminist to appreciate flowers and gifts from the man in your life.
However, it has become a global occasion to celebrate the amazing things women have achieved. This past year in particular has been incredibly tough. I take my hat off to CEOs and business owners who have navigated these uncertain times in the best way possible. I bow down to all the essential workers and mother’s who had a whole new balancing act to tackle – damn, it’s hard!
So however celebratory you feel, you deserve a treat and it doesn’t have to be extravagant. It could be a glass of prosecco, a book and a hot bath (hint, hint husband and Lola!) If you want to show the amazing woman that you are some extra love, I have picked out some feel-good items in my edit below.
