Badass Babes; International Women’s Day

I swear it’s not my birthday, but it sure has felt like it this week. First by the sweet token gift I found wrapped and waiting for me on my desk when I arrived at work first thing Monday morning from one of my co-workers and now this… 

The other night I received a very heartfelt email from a woman by the name of Nicole Abbott. Nicole is the owner and driving force behind “Hey Babe Cosmetics”. She is also the true definition of a Warrior Princess. Twice widowed at a young age and finding herself having to raise 2 small children all on her own she was forced to wear many different hats all at once but with time and by allowing herself the grace she so deserved she found both the strength and courage to fulfill her lifelong dream of creating her very own cosmetic line; and with great success I might add. Nicole is a truly inspirational woman who has triumphed through her pain and sorrow. 

She had been following my journey for some time and in her email to me she said that she wanted to reach out to me as one fellow “survivor” to another with the hopes of adding some “shine” and “a pop of glam” to my life by gifting me with a few of her “besties” from her “Hey Babe Cosmetics” collection in honour of International Women’s Day today. 

I couldn’t wait to get home yesterday and open my gift which Nicole had so kindly left on my front porch earlier in the day; and now I can’t wait to experiment with all my new goodies too. 

I feel such a strong connection to Nicole and after I shared with her yesterday how I’d been good friends with her first husband’s sister for many years during high school and beyond (and who also tragically passed away just last month), I believe our connection became even stronger. 

Please visit “Hey Babe Cosmetics” at and help support this “Badass Babe”, Mom, Entrepreneur and the Founder of 2 incredible Foundations which she created and named in honour of both of her late husbands. 

I also want to give a special shout out today to all the other “Badass Babes” in my life who continue to support me on my journey, who inspire me with their strength, who empower me, encourage me, believe in me and remind me every day that I am enough. 

Babes supporting Babes; that’s what it’s all about.
