Happy International Women's Day! I hope you are celebrating today with all women present in your lives: girlfriends, mothers, sisters, aunties, hairdressers, nail stylists, doctors, engineers, teachers, politicians and wise grannies. Today's post is a remainder to all of you, my dear women. Please, always remember that...

You are beautiful
