A gift for International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day for my dear ladies. What are you doing to celebrate this today to make it more meaningful and more memorable? Why not give yourself a break and a gift, to give yourself a little extra attention so you can recharge before the next round of challenges and battles. I have no doubt each of you are incredibly hard-working and busy woman who puts yourself at the bottom of the to-do list in your forever swamped daily schedules.


Here’s a few simple gifts that you can gift yourself…
1) Fresh Air
Put down what you are doing, step outside for a few minutes and breath in some fresh air. Your body will thank you for it and your mind will be clearer after your oxygen boost. While you are out there maybe push the boat out and have a little walk around the black and enjoy the spring.

2) A pat on the back
Do it right now! While you are reading this article, go on, you total deserve it! There will most certainly, be something you deserve a pat on the back for, you just haven’t stopped to acknowledge it yet. We’ve all work so hard to chase your dreams or even for the sake of living, however, we hardly stop and give ourselves some recognition! We often focused a lot on having our work recognised by others, but most importantly, we need to give ourselves recognition, so we can move onto the next task with pride!

3) An Eye Break
How many of you sit in front of computer monitors and work for long hours everyday? We spent so much time looking at screens, all kinds of screens, and our eyes get tired but we rarely give them a break. Close your eyes, just for a few months, take a few deep breaths and feel your eyes rest and relax. How good does that feel? Just over a simple moment!

4) A stretch
Any stretch will do. A sneaky leg stretch under the desk while squeezing your butt cheeks, or stretch out your arms above your head interlocking the fingers. A stretch to the body is like a glass of water to a thirsty woman, we desperately need this.

5) An Hour Off
Go on, I dare you. Schedule an hour off, all to yourself. Yes some me time to do whatever you want. You may choose to schedule in a yoga session to strength out the tentions in your body, a job on the street to shakes off some stress from work, read one of your favourite novels which you promised yourself to schedule sometime to read it but never got a chance to, or pamper yourself with a massage or facial. Anthing you like as long as it’s not something on your to-do list! You might enjoy it so much that you might want to extend it for another hour!

I hope as you read through this post you have already ‘gifted’ yourself something special!


Xx, Jessie

    I love this post idea, what a great way to celebrate women! I especially love those 5 simple gifts we can give to ourselves any time. I especially like #3 giving our eyes a break, as they are constantly bombarded by blue light from our computer screens. A great post idea babe!

    I didn’t do anything special or particular, but I did catch up on all the episode of K Drama that I missed while my kids are at school and that was the best treat for myself! You look phenomenal, the leather biker pants and sequined top is such a fierce and strong look. Hope you had a great day.

    All of these things sound amazing and something I should be doing more regularly period! Love this outfit! So edgy and glam! Also, I had to double glance at the first photo because I thought you were directly on the ledge and I was all, ” Oh my goodness she’s brave!” But then I say there was an extra brick piece behind you! lol Stunning captures and I also love the lighting of your images! For IWD I think I just ‘momed’ all day! 🙂

    Firstly, I am obsessed with your sequin top! I love the pants as well! I have the same pair!

    I love the ways that you suggested we gift ourselves. I am at the computer 9-5 for my career job, then until 11 working on blog stuff. I definitely need to rest my eyes, because I am always getting headaches from straining them so much!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Wow these are so risky photos to take! I’m sorta afraid of heights so I have to give you a creadit for this photo shoot! By the way your outfit is so stunning!!!

    When it comes to celebrating international women’s day I really love how it turned out this year. Not a blah celebration of women as gender but rather as a holiday of women’s rights and equality!

    These pics are amazing! The ones on the wall look so scary – I don’t know if I have the guts! And I love your simple ways to treat yourself. I heard a bunch of people took a social media break on Women’s day…but I just couldn’t LOL. And that Zara sequin top is soooo good – love this look from head to toe!

    Happy international Women’s Day Jessie. I completely agree with you, as women we are so busy and are constantly multitasking. We deserve some time off and need to switch off from all of our roles. These are such great tips to follow, I really want to try using them at least once a day. And a massage sounds amazing too. Also I am totally in love with your top. You are looking absolutely stunning babe.

    I spend my day at work. As women we are all amazing though, and I feel this was such an important day. All your words of advice were wonderful. I don’t have to sit and look at a computer screen all day, but I do enjoy breaks every once in awhile. I am working 8 days in a row this week, so I am so ready to get my days off in a row and catch up on what I want to do and need to do. As for spring, this winter weather needs to take a hike. I’m so ready for warmth. This message was a good one though, all good points to concentrate on myself,

    Love, Liz

    Those are gorgeous photos! I’m obsessed with anything with sequins on it and I’m totally diggin’ that top! and I totally agree with those tips – I’ve started taking a stroll in the park with my partner at least 2-3 times a week and I’ve also been trying to take time to myself, by exercising a few times a week too, for 30-40mins. Just getting away from the computer and doing something else – it’s such a nice break! Great tips babe!

    Nothing says Happy International Women’s day as a powerful outfit like this! That beautiful sequence top is both feminine and edgy and that pants (from zara?) has girl boss all over it! I definitely rewarded myself by giving myself some self love with a day off and just relaxing! An hour off…more like a day off for me haha !
