We Are The Women!

cover

Today being International Women’s Day we are reminded of this quote by Twinkle Khanna, “Women have been looking for a cape and have been handed an apron for centuries.” It took longer but we have eventually realized that all we need to do is swing that apron around and let it flutter down our backs. That, even if patriarchy tries to stifle our voices, we shouldn’t be bothered and still continue to fight for what we believe in and eventually make ourselves heard!

Honestly, it’s not just now; women have realized their potential and have been proving themselves since centuries. Don’t believe us? Well, we have an account of 4 such kickass women extraordinaires who make us proud. Here’s us celebrating them with our Women’s Day Special Quote Pendants.

night witches

The Female Fighter Pilots of World War II a.k.a Night Witches

They were brave, they were feared and they were known as the Night Witches. Any German pilot who defeated even one of them was rewarded an Iron Cross! Such was the scare of these powerful women who flew planes of plywood and canvases with open cockpits, primarily in the night dropping an estimate of 23,000 tons of bombs invading German armies. They showcased true grit and our GirlPower Pendant celebrates them.

right to vote

Leader of the British Suffragate Movement – Emmeline Pankhurst

She made Women’s right to vote her mission and inspired thousands with her powerful speeches. Such glorious was her practice that her two daughters Christabel and Sylvia also became dedicated suffragettes. Our SelfMade Pendant joins hands with their outshonement  across history.

rani laxmibai

Lakshmibai, The Rani of Jhansi

The first prominent woman freedom fighter who decided to fight than surrender! With her son on her back, this queen participated in the first freedom rebellion and though remaining defeated; she will always be remembered proudly. Our BossLady Pendant glorifies her timeless courage.

chimamanda

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Her stentorian style of writing and speaking garnered her immense fanbase. She speaks fiercely about feminism, gender construction and urges us to remake ourselves for the better. She is the voice of today and we celebrate her with our Flawless Pendant which resounds with her ideologies of a woman who is in charge of her own destiny and will continue doing her thing.

 

 

 

 

See What The Women At Pipa Bella Are Pledging! #BeBoldForChange

International Women’s Day, which is today not only calls for a celebration but is also a remembrance of all the worthy ladies that made history and who are destined to make it in the near future. IWD allows us to reflect on the workings of the society, to collectively achieve equal gender roles and greater integrity.

In the midst of our “Take a selfie with a bold lipstick and make a pledge” contest on Instagram, we here decided to ask our in-house team members what #BeBoldForChange quote do they abide by and they offered us a series of spectacular ones.

Here you’ll see them flaunting their bold mantras with bolder lipsticks.

We all know it does and with likes of Malala Yousafzai and Michelle Obama inspiring us to be game changers, it might not be far before we all realize our individualities and walk this path.

Yes, let nobody dim your shine. Do your thing and always remember, haters gonna hate. So yeah, know that you are unbreakable and shine on!

Totally, don’t we all know that already? Like Margaret Thatcher said, “If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.” No, we are not overshadowing men here, but do you get the point? Yes, we openly proclaim, WOMEN ARE AWESOME!

Processed with VSCO with wwf presetYup, you heard that right! Let nobody tell you what to do, undo the shackles and break the prejudices. Be it fixing the faucet or leading the nation, precede and impact.

When did you think you never were? Banish all who told you otherwise. Dismiss those thoughts and renew your vigour because you already have what you need and nobody can stop you from achieving what you desire.

We would like to differ from a popular myth here because if we are equal halves, aren’t we supposed to save ourselves by fighting the devil or swimming in the deep sea? The modern warrior princess that resides in all of us is equal parts demure and fierce. We’d like to keep it that way too.

Lastly, A Happy Women’s Day to you’ll. May you succeed immensely and create greater histories.

P.S – Don’t forget to commemorate this day with PB baubles because we here are. 😀

Not that we are not celebrating always, but 8th March is International Women’s Day, which gives us another chance to celebrate. We here are always looking for more reasons to do that with much pomp and fervour! Women’s Day is not only about acknowledging yourself but also about honouring those women in your life who have been rock solid and like a wall. So what do we usually do on this day?  Some of us resort to shopping or go for brunches with our besties, or just enjoy some quiet lone time reading a book or at a spa.

But, this time around since we at Pipa Bella are all about cocktails we thought that chugging down a few extra ones on this day won’t do any harm. Or maybe we just like to believe that! 😀

So here’s a list of 5 cocktails that the girls can drink while they catch up with their besties and the guys can make for their lady loves 🙂
