When I drive to work every day I listen to satellite radio and one of the stations that is usually on is the Hits One channel. Just about every day they announce some kind of odd National day. “It’s National cheese popcorn day” or today is “National Taco Day“. I always wonder who decides what day gets the notoriety and why. Well last week you may have seen International Women’s Day floating all around the social media outlets. I was happy for the day of recognition but also baffled because I feel like every day should be National Women’s Day.
Let’s just think about this for a second. How many hats do you wear on a daily basis? How many projects/jobs/life issues do you take on every single day and execute them all perfectly? We are career women, wives, moms, therapists to our friends/coworkers, nurses to the sick in our households, we clean, we cook, we mend, we run businesses/companies, juggle multiple jobs at once and are expected to do it all on minimal sleep……still look polished and heaven forbid we forget to pick up the dry cleaning am I right? I feel like every day we are superwomen and should be applauded for it. I mean I think of my mother raising six kids, working, picking us up from all our sporting activities, having dinner on the table by six, helping with homework and sewing that patch on our Girl Scout uniform all while never raising her voice ever. Amazing right? Every woman I know from life and in the blog world is extremely impressive and I take this time to tell you that you rocking it. To keep striving to meet those goals, achieve that next milestone to make it to the finish line.
I don’t think one day is enough. I think that we should all continue to support one another and really mean it. I get daily emails from everyone asking my opinion or help and I am glad to do it. Donate your time or expertise today to another fellow go getter female out there!
I am teaming up with Zappos.com today to showcase an iconic brand that has always supported women, which is Keds. Keds has been putting women first since 1916, can you believe they have been along for that long?!?!?! I mean who could forget Baby dancing away in her white Keds with Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing? Well Keds are back in a big way and the styles are absolutely adorable. I picked up this bright colorful pair and haven’t taken them off since they came out of the box. I wore them this past weekend down in St. Pete cruising all the downtown markets as well as walking miles around Orlando at Universal Studios. They are seriously so comfy. I would recommend half sizing down. I am usually a 9 but ordered an 8.5 and they fit perfectly. Seriously how fun is this blue pair?!
My favorite part about this campaign is that I get to work with Zappos.com again. I swear they have the fastest shipping ever, even beats my trusted Prime. I ordered these on Wednesday night and Friday morning they were at my door. If you ever have a problem their customer service is on it, no long wait times and they are super friendly. I also didn’t know that Zappos.com has a 365 day return policy, got to love that!
They are also affordably priced, I want to pick up this pink pair as well. I love how Keds supports women and want to encourage you to continue celebrating and helping to drive other females even if it isn’t our one allotted National Day. How many different hats do you wear in one day? Thank you to Keds and Zappos.com for sponsoring this post!
