As 2012 starts to wind down, I find myself thinking about 2013 and what I would like to accomplish in the new year. While I was having these deep thoughts [smile], I decided that creating a board full of inspiring women for this month's Monday Muse would be just the kick in the pants I needed to run full charge into the new year. The common thread between all these women is their strength, impeccable style, and ability to remain relevant in their own unique way, utilizing their own unique voice. Even Audrey - who has unfortunately left us - continues to inspire women around the world; That's staying power.
Along with needing motivation for 2013, I think another reason I have strong women on the brain is due to the fact that we saw No Doubt perform twice last week. Talk about a band - and a woman - that continues to remain relevant after so many years. Gwen is a force.
Now, mind you, this list is by no means comprehensive or exhaustive. I was tempted to make this inspiration board the longest running board this blog has ever seen, but I refrained myself. I certainly could have added Oprah, Martha Stewart, Gloria Steinem, Anna Wintour, Kelly Wearstler...Well, you get the picture. I encourage you to please share your own. Who would you have me add to this board?
