Such a great way to start the day!

A fab chat with Abi Wright founder of @festivalofthegirl on our joint mission to inspire and empower as many young girls as we can.

We cover gender discrimination, gender stereotypes and the decline in girls' confidence between the ages of 8-12 years.

 Plus, the importance of doing all we can to build strong foundations in girls as early as possible. 

I hope you enjoy the discussion as much as I did.

I'm so looking forward to chatting with Abi Wright, one of the founders of @festivalofthegirl today!

We'll be discussing why we felt it was important to come together this International Women's Day to create a special collaboration box for young girls.

The theme for IWD this year is #breakthebias; we wanted our GirlBE members to receive a box that turned stereotypical assumptions of feminine traits firmly on its head.

I can't wait for the box to launch next week and see the girls' reactions.

Join our Insta Live at 10am (or watch the replay if you can't make it! ☺️)

P.S If your little one isn't a member of GirlBE yet, just head to link in our Bio and get her signed up; you'll be just in time to make sure she gets our brilliant GirlBE + Festival of a Girl collaboration box!

We have got exciting news! We have been squirrelling away this year, working on some exciting collaborations.

There are some fantastic organisations out there, as determined as we are at GirlBE HQ, in their mission to inspire and motivate young girls. 

So we thought, wouldn't it be fun to work together with them on a selection of collaboration GirlBE boxes. 🙌

We think they will be a brilliant way to cover new and important topics with our young subscribers.

We can't wait to share them with you.....! 🤩

Guess what's even more exciting....the first one launches next week!!! 👏

More details to come tomorrow... so watch this space. 

Any guesses who we might be teaming up with 🤔? Let me know below 👇

Wow it's #ColourFriday

So instead of promoting Black Friday today, which has become this crazy push by big companies, to promote stock, which in 90% of times has actually been the same price or cheaper in the last 6 months!

Today we are joining @holly.co to help promote #ColourFriday
A campaign to support small and creative businesses.

Coming out today is our Empowering Girls Gift Guide.

Jump on our mailing list to receive it. 📩

And the majority are from Small Businesses! 🙌

Click on the link in our bio to join our mailing list or DM me your first name and email address and I'll add you on.

Have a fab colourful day ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

This is your chance to champion small businesses!


The Independent Awards are an opportunity for you to support, show your appreciation (or even discover) new and exciting creative brands.


Holly Tucker (MBE), the founder of Notonthehighstreet, Holly&Co, and the U.K. Ambassador for Creative Small Businesses set up the awards last year as a way of highlighting and promoting the nation's small business founders.


Obviously, I am gobsmacked and delighted to be included as one of the nominees!!


The quality of the other contenders is truly amazing.


Please take time to visit Holly & Co (holly.co) website to view the awards, the categories and see the incredible talent for yourself.


P.S. It also acts as a brilliant starting point for your Christmas Shopping.


Remember the saying: Every time you buy something from a small business, an actual person does a happy dance!

I had a dream when I started GirlBE to try and find a way to make a difference and inspire girls.⁠
⁠
To hear it's working is like music to my ears 🙌👏.⁠
⁠
Please keep sharing. It makes my day! ❤️⁠

Working on a Saturday, but still smiling!⁠
⁠
It can only mean one thing....Christmas is on the horizon ☺️⁠
⁠
Super busy here at GirlBE HQ.⁠
⁠
To say this year has been a challenge would be an understatement!⁠
⁠
Determined to get ahead though, so we can keep those monthly boxes popping through letterboxes on time each and every month.⁠
⁠
So much media reports lately of stock shortages etc....too boring to go into on here...but the struggle is real. 🤦‍♀️⁠
⁠
Hence why I am super busy organising our boxes 4/5 months ahead. That way I know we will have all the stock we need... and I can sleep at night 😴⁠
⁠
Big shout out to any other #smallbusiness owners working today.⁠
⁠
When the likes of John Lewis are having struggles you can imagine what it's like for us little guys. ⁠
⁠
But not going to let it beat us here at GirlBE HQ, the music is on and the coffee brewed ☕️, and plans coming on nicely. 😊 🙌 ⁠

Always chase the rainbows 🌈⁠
Girl Power 👧🏻👧🏽👧🏾👧🏿⁠
Courage over fear 🦁⁠
Free your mind 🧘‍♀️⁠
No Drama Queens 👑⁠

Oh my goodness, how's this for a brilliant way to display our monthly role model cards. 🙌⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Here's the very creative Ruby showing us her fantastic display.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Every month in the GirlBE magazine we profile young teenage girls who are already out there in the world achieving great things.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Then we pick one iconic female figure to illustrate and feature on our keepsake cards. Each card has a biography on the back to inspire our readers!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
We love the fact Ruby's are now hung on her bedroom wall to reminder her everyday what is possible!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Such a brilliant idea Ruby, 👏we are off to do the same here at GirlBE HQ. 🖼⁠⁠
⁠⁠
If you are already one of our subscribers drop us a DM,
Let us know if there are any iconic female figures you'd like us to profile next! ⁠⁠
