Today is one of our favorite days of the year- International Women's Day! Now, more than ever, there's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. This year's international campaign is to #PressforProgress by motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.
We have always believed in inspiring and empowering women, helping them to lead more beautiful lives- it is one of the many reasons we started Carolily! Now more than ever, we want women to be confident, self assured, and bold. We all have the opportunity to make our mark, leave a lasting impression and help change the world for the better.
This year, we are proud to announce that we will be working with the Karis Support Society through various events and fundraisers. Karis provides a loving home for women struggling with addictions and mental health challenges.
Today, we want to celebrate women. We want to celebrate the moments that have made us proud, have made us excited, have challenged us and scared us and helped us to become stronger individuals. We want to to share our strength and pride with others and help to inspire the same in them.
Join us on our Instagram feed and Facebook page as we ask others what it means #tobeawoman.

As we sit here, writing this article, we know that we'll never experience this moment again. We'll never be this exact age again. We'll never feel this exact way again. We'll never look identical to how we do in this moment. We only have the present.
When we are struggling with the reflection we see in the mirror, feeling like it doesn't match how youthful we feel inside, we like to remind ourselves of five reasons why this is our best age ever.
How often have you heard "she looks good for her age" or had someone assume something about you because of your age? We're all guilty of it. Society perpetuates the idea that once we cross the birthday threshold into our 50s or... *gasp*...our 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, that there are limitations based on a number.
We always say that age is "just" a number. But, that's not totally true, is it?
