Mastershoe


There's something quite exciting when you get a nice new pair of shoes, especially when you're matching them to your wardrobe. Mastershoe is an online store which stocks a range of footwear brands and design styles to suit everyone's budget.
I had the amazing opportunity to choose my favourite footwear, which was a very hard thing to do especially as there were so many styles to choose from. I particularly wanted a beige pair of trainers and as the Mastershoe website is really easy to navigate I could simply select my desired size and colour and search for the shoe and style I wanted, and after some deliberation, I opted for these Mustang Trainers in Taupe


The ladies Mustang are made from synthetic uppers and not only look amazing, they are durable and have a padded collar and footbed for comfort making them perfectly comfortable to wear every day and at only £34.99 with a 22% saving what more could I ask for. Check out Mastershoe for these trainers and more www.mastershoe.co.uk.

International Women's Day


For years, women have been pitted against one another, often encouraged to be catty and cold. But today, women are changing their attitudes to each other and beginning to form a sisterhood, realising there is so much more that can be done to empower one another and create collective success. Life Coach, Carole Ann Rice, knows the importance of creating positive, long-lasting relationships. So, for International Women's Day, she's sharing five ways to empower other women.
  • 1. Just do it – other women are your sisters. We must stand together. Cultivate the idea that women aren't actually in competition. We are a united force on the same side and it's time to stand tall together.
  • 2. Don't pull up the ladder after yourself – 'there's a special place in hell reserved for women who don't help other women.' So be generous. Be karmic. Be kind. Share your experiences, successes and failures. Don't feel the goodwill is limited or exist in the mentality 'I've done this so well, I don't want anyone else to have it.'
  • 3. Understand your own worth as a woman – when we feel awesome, we see it in other women. When we feel in deficit, on the other hand, we are more likely to criticise other women, especially if we feel threatened by them. So take the time to discover your own self-worth and pass it on. Because whatever your shape/size/age/career, all women are fantastic!
  • 4. Don't use social media as your guide for how women should be – social media can sometimes alienate us from other women because it increases our natural tendency to compare and envy. Remember, there's room for every woman to be her original and unique self, so put your energy into celebrating that.
  • 5. Dare to compliment and help other women – say nice things and think nice things. Stop another woman in the street just to tell her, 'I love your shoes!' Don't be mean spirited; introduce your friends and acquaintances to women who can help them open doors. Mentor a younger woman and share your experiences with her. Be the inspiration that you want to see in others, 'Attract what you expect. Reflect what you deserve. Become what you respect. And mirror what you admire.
