2013 - the Year of the Lady

Cheers to 2013 – the Year of the Lady!

During the re-launch of Lady In Charge, we declared 2013 to be the Year of the Lady and it has been an interesting one so far.  In the worlds of fashion, beauty, music, television and movies, classy and sassy ladies are taking over.  Jennifer Lawrence was both gracious and memorable in her Oscar acceptance speech.  Mindy Kaling has claimed “It girl” status with the success of her new television show “The Mindy Project”.  And we are seeing a backlash over the lack of grace that many “celebrities” seem to show on a regular basis (I won’t point fingers at one particular person because there are so many).  Right about now, it feels like a good time to celebrate the year so far and the year ahead.  But before we do that, I want to look back first at something dear to my heart:  why Lady In Charge exists!

The tagline of Lady In Charge is “live classy, stay sassy”, and while catchy, this phrase has a lot more meaning than you would expect.  I have always been one to try to live the classiest life possible but I have struggled with how to do this on my own terms.  To bring grace to things and to be the best possible person I can be at all times is my ultimate goal, but how to do this without losing my individuality is the dilemma.

It is a constant struggle for us all to be the best version of our true selves.  We want to aim high and achieve greatness but we don’t want to do this at the expense of having our own personalities! We easily forget that our choices are ours alone to live with and if we don’t wear the perfect outfit, or bake the perfect cake, or make the perfect decision at work, the world keeps turning and we always have a chance to make things better the next time!

It is because of this constant battle between living classy but staying sassy that Lady In Charge exists.  We hope to inspire you to be the best version of yourself and no one else!  So cheers to the Year of the Lady – to the year of being the best you that you can be on your terms.
