Women’s Day Giveaway

This coming Wednesday we celebrate Women’s Day and what better way to celebrate than with a Women’s Day Giveaway?


We all know that one women who you secretly want to be, whether its for her beautiful skin, her way she elegantly just pulls everyone together or their compassion towards anyone. It’s these women that makes us want to be better. All of us posses the ability to be great, we just have to believe in ourselves. Women all over the world gets treated differently because of our gender, in the work place, at church and even sometimes at home. But this doesn’t get us down. We still strive for greatness and we still do our best. We as women can do anything we put our minds to.

It is so easy to judge another lady on what she is wearing or how her makeup is done, but what we do not know is that her toddler might have been very sick this morning and is in hospital – which mother in their right mind would then be concerned about fashion?  It is so easy to lecture a women on what they should have done and how they should react in a bad situation, rather than to lend a hand, be vulnerable and humble and ask how you can assist. Women have the ability to pull together a whole community and make it a better place to be, we are gatherers, providers and caretakers. God has given us the ability to care beyond all comprehension, to love beyond all bounds and to care more for others than ourselves.

In this post I want to set a challenge for you. For a whole week – 7 days – do one thing to empower a fellow lady. Compliment someone you do not get along with very well, help out a stranger. Be the change you want to see in the world. Forgive a person who wronged you and take them for a coffee. Not only will this free up space to love and car more, but it will set an example and inspire others to do the same.

As this is women month my giveaway will run until 31 August and two winners will be chosen. There will be two prizes with products from Elizabeth Arden.

    My Mom is the most amazing role model to me; you have never steered me in the wrong direction, you allowed me to make my own mistakes without so much as an “I told you so.” You afforded me the space to grow and learn for myself without ever being so far away that you weren’t able to help when I needed you. You are my mom, my mentor, my strength, my number one fan and, most of all, my best friend. You have always been a constant force in an ever-changing life.

  9. My best friend, she is a real sister who encourages and supports women. She always strives to be the best person she can be which makes me want to do same.

    Yes there are times when we are at loggerheads but these hiccups always strengthen our relationships. They are my number 1 supporters in anything & everything I do & inspire me more everyday to be the very best version of myself that I can be with no judgement💖

  16. My mother, though she has passed. She was the best person I ever knew. I admire her more every day now that I am a mother too. She was a good person who ALWAYS did the right thing and set an example of how to be a good person. I am forever grateful that she was in my life and will forever reflect on the lifetime of lessons she passed on to me.

  17. My 3 daughters are my greatest source of inspiration. They give me strength to be the best mom I can possibly be, they teach me lessons no one else has ever taught me. Their unconditional love just melts my heart. I’m so proud of them.

    my mother,
    As a mother myself I truly understand the dedicated and undivided love my mother has given to me. I love my mom because no matter what she goes through she comes out stronger no matter how bad things turn up in her life she’s got away to pick herself up again and get through it. She brings comfort when there’s sadness, she brings joy where you feel there’s no hope. She’s always there one step away. She sacrifices everything for her children and expects nothing in exchange for the loves that she gives. She’s eternal, a angel a gift from God. Being a mother to my two beautiful blessing and miracles boy I can finally say that you don’t know how much your mother loves you until you have given birth and become a parent yourself. The joys of being a mom is something I treasure. It’s the best job in the world watching this little person grow up into a little character and all the unconditional love you have for this child is a magical feeling that no one could ever take away from you.
    Oooh goodness this is too wonderful
    Liked and shared and
    Dreaming to be lucky

    . My mum inspires me. She is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.

    My mother definitely! I am the woman I am today because of her unconditional love, compassion and hope in me. She has always been a positive role model in the good times and bad. She is a grandmother and has passed her love throughout the generations. I don’t know what I would do without my mommy❤

She always helped everyone…. and her door was always open… she was my best friend….. motivater…. always inspiring me and cheering me on…. her hugs and kisses and truly missed…. my mother told me everything…. just not how I am supposed to live without her. I miss you mom… and will always be thankful to the Lord for giving me the greatest mom💖

Love u!

    My Gran – though she passed away 5 years ago. She was a LADY … self-taught & poised – she spoke the Queen’s English & and read like she had a PhD in English Literature, although she was forced to quit school after Grade 6 – one would think she went to ‘finishing school’ 😍She was a #SUPERWOMAN … #ILoveHer🤗😘

    My Mom inspired me through out my life, she inspires me each moment of my life, and she will inspire me till the last breath of life. She is woman of substance, very honest, a hardworking human, the most beautiful soul in this whole universe. Whenever I look at my mother I see an ordinary person but when I think about what she does and how she does it she becomes divine and the reason of my smile! My mother has taught me that hard times can be overcome and that losing battles can be won. She has taught me more than I could have learnt from any book. She sets an inspirational example to me teaching me how to live life and make wise choices, even in the most uncertain situations. I respect her a lot. She is my inspiration, my role model.

  36. My mom, she helped form the woman i am today. She helped me learn from her mistakes, and supported and comforted me in my mistakes. She is my bff today <3

    My grandmother, she’s old school who still follows traditions and customs. She’s an amazing person inside and out. She’s always been there for me, giving me the best advice. Motivating me to always give it my best.

    My mother, she is so selfless and positive. She radiates being into my life.

  41. It has been and ALWAYS will be my mom. If I’m ever half the women and mom she is then I’ll be happy. She’s the most selfless, compassionate and gracious person. Some nights when I lay awake thinking about her my eyes fill with tears because of how much love I feel for this one human that it news overwhelming. I don’t only love her because she’s my mom but because I think she’s an angel walking on this earth. She does soooo much for others and forgets that she also needs to give some of herself, to herself. I pray for God’s light to continue shining over my mom’s life because my one wish is for my children to get to know the extraordinary human I had the privilege to call my mom.

  42. All the strong women changing the world and making it a better place.

    The woman who inspires me on the daily is without doubt my mum. Even though she is happily married she still has the ability to be an independent and powerful and selfless human being. She’s always there even when you don’t know you need her. My daily inspiration and cheerleader

  46. Jane Goodall – she is fearless, tenacious & has been inspiring women since 1958.

    I must say that my best friend, Elize Buchler, inspires me to be the best version of myself. She is adverse to gossip, she loves from the heart and she always gives people the benefit of the doubt. She is a giver of gifts whether it be a tin of handmade rusks to a slab of chocolate or a handpicked flower. She has taught me the art of gentleness and peace, something I’m still working on!

    My best friend. She has overcome so much adversity, and still strives to be her best self.
