Moroccanoil has teamed up with six amazing women to create a project called INSPIRED BY WOMEN™. You guys will probably know I’m already a huge fan of the brand, you can watch me raving about one of their hero products in this months faves video. So I was really excited to hear that such a huge brand was creating such an inspiring campaign. They are telling the stories of these women to inspire us and give us all the courage and determination to do something for the world – together.
The difference one person can make is huge, when it’s happening all over the world those little ripples turn into good things right across the globe. A few years ago I decided to do just that and travelled to St Lucia to work with vulnerable women and children. I was living in a very deprived area and working at an orphanage on the island. The horrifying things I saw really affected me and after the first few days I didn’t think I’d be strong enough to carry on, but I did, and it changed me forever. Helping children and women that had gone through the most awful situations did two things. However small my help may have been, it made their lives a little better as we cared for them and tried to inspire them that life could get better. Secondly, it made me realise just how lucky we are in life. Whatever we are going through, someone else is much worse off, beyond what we can imagine, and I learnt to try to really appreciate and enjoy the things around me.
Roll on a few years and I’m sat with my tea ordering the latest lipstick that I’ve been waiting weeks to buy. It’s too easy to forget what’s really important in life and I want to thank Moroccanoil for reminding me what really matters and inspiring me to make change again. I want to share two videos with you that Moroccanoil has created. The first tells you about the project, the second is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s story who’s an ambassador for it. I want to ask you to join me in making a few goals. Whoever you are, whatever you’re doing, let’s follow these inspirational women and make a change. Whether it’s a project you’ve been putting off, volunteering, helping a friend out….together we can make a massive difference. Love Becky x
