#Sparklewithstrength: Part 2: Make it Happen

All around the world, International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on the 8 of March.
The first International Women's Day was held in 1911, and in this year, 2015, the theme for IWD is Make it happen, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognising women.

For this special day, we had the opportunity to collaborate with talented Pearlyn from Pearlyn and Paper

She has beautifully designed and drew 3 special woman for this occassion.

Audrey Hepburn, a film and fashion icon, featured withclassic pearls and crystals, which I'm sure everyone is familiar with.

In her iconic monochrome palette, she is painted with one of her famous quotes which reads: 

True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows.And the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years

Frida Kahlo, a mexican painter known for her vibrant colours.
Kahlo had a volatile marriage with the famous Mexican Artist, Diego Rivera. She suffered lifelong health problems many caused by a traffic accident.

During her period of inmobolization, she created many paintings, of which many were her own self portraits.

At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.

We salute Frida Kahlo for her strength in life. When you are feeling at your lowest point, look up into the night sky and remember, the darker the sky, the brighter the star shines.

Amelia Earhart,the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She received the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross for this record

During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 Earhart disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean. Fascination with her life, career and disappearance continues to this day

Adventure is worthwhile in itself.

You only live once, have you embarked on an adventure which will leave you with no regrets?

We really love how inspirational and motivation these 3 quotes are.
