We Run This World || Femme & Fortune Misa Cosmetics Collab
I did a blog post a while back on showing love. If there's one thing I've noticed about myself, it's that I'm a full-blown cheerleader. I can't help it, and honestly, now that I'm older, I don't think it's something I should try to contain. I'm so inspired by friends and people I meet who not only have a vision for their lives, but the boldness to chase it wholeheartedly. Whether it's little wins or big wins, celebrate them both for yourself and those around you.
So many people are out here busting their butts trying to make their dreams come true, and we could all use a little more encouragement from time to time. Don't hold back on being a part of that. We're stronger together. You just don't know the difference you may be making in the life of the person you're cheering on, and there's something extra special about sharing those moments with other women pursuing their passions.
*Stepping off my soapbox haha All of that, was a shameless alley-oop and thank you to Melissa Alam and Nikki Khanna of Femme & Fortune, for the invitation to be a part of their #WeRunThisWorld campaign in partnership with @misacosmetics_.
It's a great feeling knowing that I contributed to an initiative specifically designed to empower women by way of a product I have spent who knows how much money on, and that so many of us use very regularly, nail polish.
Below you'll find a cool mix of girl boss names thoughtfully curated by Melissa and her team such as, "Call Me CEO" and clever product descriptions to match. Also, did I mention the nail polish itself is SO great?!
My shades for the shoot were Shatter The Glass Ceiling, a nice flat white, which was all too fitting for this point in my life --bigger and better in 2017 ;-) As well as, We Can Do It! Lord knows any friend of mine can tell you that I probably appreciate the concept of "teamwork makes the dream work" more than most haha The shade is a deep sapphire blue that adds a bold pop of color against my skin. I quite possibly couldn't have asked for a better pair to match my narrative.
Check out the full set of descriptions from the line below.
