Although no gift I ever give her will ever be enough for all that she has done for me, I still like to try to make her feel special. Hillberg & Berk was created by Saskatchewan designer and entrepreneur Rachel Mielke in 2007. Her jewellery is stunning-- hand-crafted, bold, timeless and beautiful. She is also a serious powerhouse of a lady that inspires me to be more confident and daring. Not only does she create her line using the finest semi-precious stones, pearls and metals, she is also a huge supporter of charities that support women empowerment. To date, Hillberg & Burke has contributed over $500,000 to charities and organizations that set out to assist women. Some of them include the Somali Women's Scholarship Program and the Malala Fund! The Queen has even worn one of her brooches. If that doesn't suggest girlboss status then I don't know what does!
To celebrate International Women's Day, which is on March 8th, I am sharing the sparkle with the first woman to ever empower me, and make me feel like I am unique, special and worthy of anything. I gifted my mother a pair of Hillberg & Berk's iconic Sparkle Ball Stud earrings. We were out on Saturday for a day trip and made a stop into Kelly's Bake Shoppe where we sat down for treats and coffee. It was the perfect moment! Not only are the earrings a stunning piece of jewelry, but because they signify something more-- love, support, originality and a bond that we can share with all women.
I'd love to know who do you look up? Who empowers you and inspires you to be the best and work your hardest, and achieve amazing things?
