And frankly everyone should be – not because it’s a political catch phrase – but because equal rights are so important to global development. Today is the Women’s March on Washington and even though I am a resident of the DC-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) corridor I will miss it (today’s my birthday and I have some family plans).
So if you’re like me and will miss it due to obligations or travel issues, I encourage you to “Wing It”.
I fell in love with the Wing this past fall when I came across a few articles discussing a members-driven, Manhattan-based multi-purpose space for women who needed a place to transition from engagement-to-engagement without having to inconveniently run home (be it across town or across the river to New Jersey).
The Wing also hosts inspiring events and activities for the community.
So imagine my excitement when they opened up a store and it is exactly what I would have expected from such a cool place. The items are thoughtfully curated, inspiring, and a little irreverent.
So if your favorite feminist is longing to show that she and all women (and girls) can do it, consider a gift from the Wing.
I’m a proud sorority girl and wearer of pearls – and I’m definitely not the only one. I was having some fun on Pinterest and came across a set of pearls that featured a central blue stone. After a little bit of investigation I found the site that sells them.
Gratia Pearl, the aforementioned site, is a veritable treasure chest of uniquely classical pieces that make great gifts for any woman who has pledged herself to sorority life (or just loves pearls).
The site features gifts for each sorority in the National Pan-Hellenic Council (or Divine 9) and also offers gifts for ladies who just like pretty pearls.
So the next time you’re looking for charms for your favorite Greek, check out Gratia Pearl.
After the holidays the new year hits so fast. One of the things that I do to get prepared is develop mypersonal gift list.
I sit down and list out my friends and family members and their birthdays and anniversaries. I also include other memorable occasions like my sorority anniversary (which I share with my undergraduate line sisters) and even graduations if I have the date.
Writing it down helps me get gift ready early so I don’t miss the opportunity to share an important occasion. So I’ve formatted my list and made it available for you.
