Rise & Shine Queen!

‘And Still I Rise’ is the famous poem by Maya Angelou. Have you read it? It’s a reminder that no matter what we’ve gone through, we can still rise. We’ve read it at one, or two, of our previous conferences. For me and many others, the pandemic hasn’t been the only challenge that brought us low, and left us wanting to rise. And I still felt a sense of rising within me, and for us women, so knew it was a part of this year’s, 2022, theme. A part of it but not all of it, as this year we are to shine. Yep, that’s right Rise and Shine.

Then I thought, it’s the Queen’s platinum jubilee. Although, I’m certainly not a royalist, I still think it worth commemorating because it reminds me of the queen within me. And there we have the theme for The Women Like Me L&B Conference 2022… Rise & Shine Queen.

Failure Is Only The Beginning.

“Failure is not the opposite of success, it is part of success.” – Unknown

This past week England has experienced a lot of emotions, with Frank Skinners ‘It’s coming home’ blaring all round, creating a sense of community and then the week coming to a head with the Euro 2020 penalties not going quite the way we hoped; causing a catastrophic chain reaction.

Funnily enough, some fans must be reminded that Sancho, Saka and Rashford are young men, trying and failing like the rest of us. Their effort was so admirable and knowing they will get back up there and try again is inspiring!

The message to remember for today is:

Don’t be deterred by failure; redefine failure.

Moisturizing Lotion

A thick, velvety moisturising cream containing nourishing aloe, jojoba oil, collagen and elastin to leave skin feeling soft and supple. This lotion moisturises your face, hands and body whilst maintaining the skin’s natural pH balance. Its easy-to-absorb formula also makes a great base for makeup application.

N.B. Suitable for people prone to dry skin conditions.

Forever Aloe Scrub

Unlike some scrubs that use plastic microbeads, we use microspheres of jojoba which roll over your skin gently. As they roll, they pick up the dead skin cells that clog up pores and cause skin to look dull. Gentle enough for everyday use for your face or body, the natural ingredients exfoliate and reveal healthy-looking skin.

How To Be An Ally

In honour of Pride Month we would like to share some tips with you on how to be a (better) ally for those you love. The world is increasingly becoming uncertain with divided opinions and standpoints, with the common denominator being the fact that we all want to fight for what we believe in. How can you fight for what you believe in? Become an ally!

What is an ally? An ally is someone who may not be a member of a community, but supports them. Whether it's to combat; racism, sexism, homophobia and/or the absence of mental wellbeing awareness you can recognise your privilege and use this to empower others.

We encourage you to do more research on your own to properly start your journey as this is an important topic that can change lives.

Go from curious to courageous.

“Unity makes the community!” – The Like Me CIC

The time is always right, to do something right.” – Martin Luther King JR

Here are 8 suggestions to be a (better) Ally:

  1. Acknowledge & Understand Your Privilege
  2. Educate Yourself With Research
  3. Never Stop Learning
  4. Listen!
  5. Speak Up / Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable
  6. Avoid “Performative Allyship”
  7. Learn From Your Mistakes
  8. Amplify The Voices & Messages Of Those You Support
  9. Show up.

To learn more in detail about how you can be a better ally click here.

The puzzle pieces of becoming an ally work together to create a better sense of community and reach towards the goal of equality and unity. We can all learn more, so why not?

The main message of these tips is for you to be open for putting yourself out there in order to stand up for what you believe in. Try to be consistent and considerate to those you support and those you do not agree with.

I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.” ― Albert Einstein

It’s important to recognise that we can empower and help others without being disrespectful. ” In a gentle way, you can shake the world” – Mahatma Ghandi.

We all have the ability to help others and its our choice if we want to enforce it. Are you an ally?

Our mission is to empower 1000 women to ‘climb their mountain’ so that they break down their barriers and reclaim their power. Join us. For more details about how we can help you to ‘climb your mountain’ – check out our free events here

The Worst Thing We Can Do As Women Is…

In this world we can do a lot of damage, without even realising it.

The polar ice caps for example, are melting faster than ever, or the fact that 8 Million tons of plastic enter our oceans every year. As a species we impact everything we touch, but as women, really what is the worst thing we can do?

” – And this is something that we can practice everyday, no matter where we are or what we do – because if we are united, there is no limit to what we can do” – Amal Clooney

I would argue there is a lot of leeway regarding this statement, laws exist for a reason right? As women we have come a long way to collectively stand tall and be proud of ourselves, rising through the cracks of adversity and breaking the barriers of expectation. Therefore, in a way, standing in the way of success and empowerment is the worst thing you can do. Whereas, should recognition be the source of motivation? Of course not! Our passion and diligence drive us no matter the cause and effect.

There is another very known saying…

“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.”

Theodore Roosevelt

What should you take from this? Spring into action! Become your own role model and “Be the change you want to see in the world.” – Ghandi.

We can sit here debating this all day, women should support other women. It costs nothing and community and togetherness is so important as we are always being inspired and enlightened by those around us.

Life is in no way black and white. We must live our lives’ to the fullest by being unapologetically ourselves and shining a light on things you are passionate about, not just other women but for everything you stand for.

The worst thing we can do as women is bring others down and to bring down ourselves. Wasted potential is something we can avoid if we support and empower one another to achieve everyday!

It’s pride month! We would like to give a special shout out to our LGBTQ+ friends, family and supporters to let you know we support you always. You are an inspiration for having the courage to be truly you – continue that courage through pursuing the things you believe in, to pave the way for the next generation of visionaries and trail blazers. We are stronger together.

Our mission is to empower 1000 women to ‘climb their mountain’ so that they break down their barriers and reclaim their power. Join us.
