Bumble (yes the dating app) had a quote on their Instagram story this week that said, “Women kick ass. When we all stick beside each other and support each other, amazing results happen.” Then they coined the term “FEMPIRE” and defined is as “Building an empire with bad ass women who you love and support and who love and support you.” This is what we are all trying to build as modern-day women, but why is it so hard to support and cheer on other women’s successes? Why do we secretly (or not so secretly) root for them to fail in their endeavors?

This should end now. Babes Support Babes. That’s all there is to it. Show your support for your fellow #bossbabes hustling every single day to build their FEMPIRE, whatever that looks like for her by wearing this shirt from Amelia’s Boutique.

And speaking of FEMPIRES, the adorable pink, white, and black bracelets that I am wearing around my wrist are from Sashka Co. Each bracelet is glass beaded and is handcrafted with love by female artisans in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. Each bracelet is carefully handmade bead by bead. Skill, passion, and some of the world’s finest glass and sterling silver beads go into each one. Proceeds from your purchase empower Nepali women artisans to rise above poverty through fair trade. How’s that for a Fempire?
