Hurray for International Women’s Day! As an all women team we’re pretty grateful to recognise and celebrate women’s achievements. But it also gives us an opportunity to take stock at how far we still have to go to achieve equality. I always feel a littleconflicted about marketing today- am I underminingthe struggle for equality by using an Instagram post to sell gourmet marshmallows? It’s about empowering women culturally and politically – it’s not Black Friday For Her.
A short Ryanair hop and there we were in the south west of France- that familiar waft of excitement as the plane doors opened. And within 2 hours we were sat in a tiny traditional bistro with 2 glasses of red wine teetering on the edge of a zinc table, as a jazz singer lulled us into devouring a plate of burrata with truffle. Because here the pressure is off. Unlike Paris there is no ‘having’ to go to galleries or monuments or ‘sights’ - nope. Here, you can have a weekend of breezing between eateries, wineries and dawdling.
Every year I assume that my boyfriend and I don’t ‘do’ Valentines Day. Hahahah. It’s a bit naff isn’t it? I scoff. And every year. EVERY year he buys me a super thoughtful and generous gift. And I feel like a total sh*t. A total shi*t who then has to panic buy overpriced ingredients on the way home from the bakery to look as though I hadn’t ‘forgotten’ we actually do ‘do’ Valentine’s day. Eeeks. Surprise! It was always my intention to cook us something lovely. With champagne. *scribbles on back of hand* do NOT forget champagne.
