International Women’s Day 2019 | How To Celebrate

This Friday, you’ll find us celebrating International Women’s Day 2019 (that’s the 8th March just in case you didn’t have it in your diaries.) It’s the official day where we women unite to celebrate what it means to be a woman and everything in between. Whether you’ll be hitting up a talk you’ve had pencilled in your calendar or grabbing your girls and getting ready to party – it is a Friday after all – we’ve got the only guide you need…
