On Tuesday, I had the absolute pleasure of joining Gotham Magazine and Moroccanoil on International Women’s Day for an intimate luncheon with Co-Founder, Carmen Tal. The event highlighted the brands #InspiredbyWomen campaign and video series directed by Bryce Dallas Howardo. Moroccanoil’s journey started with an inspired woman, and women continue to inspire our brand every day. Carmen’s commitment to women to both empower them and harness confidence is evident in her products and leadership.
She helps women doing incredible things have a louder voice like Rebecca Welsh, Founder of The HALO who spoke during the event. The HALO foundation supports orphaned and at-risk youth and the work they do is so incredible. The video Moroccanoil created about them as part of the INSPIRED BY WOMEN series had the entire room a little choked up (you can watch it below).
Get involved! Join the INSPIRED BY WOMEN™ conversation by sharing a woman in their life who inspires them via social media, using the hashtag #InspiredbyWomen.
For me it’s all of the usual suspects, my mom, grandma… and someone who is new to my life, Cindy my photographer (photoed above). She’s so giving and kind and her enthusiasm for life and openness inspires me. Incidentally, I was writing this today and she saw my Moroccanoil Treatment and her eyes went big with envy saying, “When I was living in Beijing my hair was so dry and breaking, Moroccanoil saved my hair… It’s like really amazing!” She assumed I was writing a product review so I told her she could have it if she let me take a picture of her with it. Little did she know it’s because she’s my #inspiredbywoman pick!
You all know how I’m all about the positivity campaigns so go on social and share some lady love! Spread joy wherever you can because the truth is there are a lot of people that really need that right now.
