5 ways to celebrate yourself or others this International Women’s Day
The past year has been a very different one to say the least, despite this it is still SO important that we celebrate our achievements as women and continue to empower one another. At NFD, our community of amazing women is what pushes us to continue to grow and learn as a brand. So for that we would like to start by saying THANK YOU. We are so thankful for our amazing customer base and the inspiring women we get the opportunity to engage with every single day.
This International Women’s Day we wanted to bring you easy ways that you can get involved to celebrate yourself and others!
Take time to reflect
In these current fast paced times we often forget to stop and reflect on our achievements. Take time to look over your past year and congratulate yourself on what you have achieved. No matter how small you may think this is, it’s important that we celebrate ourselves on the small things, big things and everything in between. Homeschooled your children? Congratulate yourself! Started a new job? Congratulate yourself! Made it through a pandemic? Congratulate yourself!
Tune into virtual events

Seek out women who empower you and support them on their journey
We all have so many amazing women in our lives, women who empower us, inspire us and teach us. Take a minute to think about who empowers you, and remember to support them on their journey. Share your friends business on instagram, tell people about your child’s school achievements, call someone and congratulate them. Whatever and whoever it may be, let’s remember to put positivity out into the world and support each other as women.
Most importantly remember, in the wise words of Beyonce, who run the world?
