When marching to your own beat can inspire the world. From little things big things grow.
FROM LITTLE THINGS BIG THINGS GROW
With the events of last weekend still fresh in our minds as millions of people got involved in the Women’s March on Washington, I thought it was fitting to say thank you for the inspiration.
There have been so many demonstrations of courage, across the world, streamed straight to us through which ever social platforms we engage with. It is impossible not to be touched by the humour of the creative banners, the points raised by impassioned speakers and the overwhelming number of people getting involved.
From little things big things grow, no matter what our inner voices may tell us on our darker days, the truth is, we all have a voice to be heard. What did you guys think of the marches?
YOUR VOICE MATTERS
As I caught up today on reading news, blogs and various other things online, I came across this post by Amy of The Luxi Look, ‘Your Voice Matters’ and could not help but share her sentiment. Touched by the impressive weekend march, she goes on to talk about the crowded blogging landscape. It is a busy and somewhat over crowded market, but I still appreciate the freedom it creates to share common experiences and connect with people world wide. How great is it that we can create a platform to share what we chose with the world?
While we do not know what will come of the future political landscape overseas, I am grateful for the inspiration, courage and determination demonstrated this weekend.
MY LITTLE LIFFNER
In other news, I am pretty darn happy to introduce the new love of my wardrobe, this suede saddle bag from Scandinavian brand Little Liffner. Given to me from my partner and his family for Christmas, I am so lucky!! Be prepared to see this tan beauty a lot!
There is something that I love, amidst the never ending stream of obvious designer logos, of a decidedly less flashy label. Of course, while I covet a Saint Laurent or even Gucci bag as much as the next fashion lover, there is something cool about not needing a logo emblazoned over a signature bag.
The subtlety seems more French to me.
Tell me, did you get involved in the march? Feel inspired by the demonstrations? I would love to know your thoughts on what played out last weekend. Please let us know below!
Particularly if you are based in the US, I’d love to know what the buzz is like over there this week? It certainly is strange to have had so many frightening updates on new political changes come at us over here. Little things add up before we know it, do they not?
