Why it’s great to be you!

It’s not often that we manage to be wholly happy with ourselves as women. I’m not saying for one minute that men don’t suffer insecurities too but as women I think we are a little more open about it. We’re the first ones to criticise ourselves be it our appearance, our personalities or our working/personal life.

So as a celebration of women and being a woman I decided to find 50 things that are great about being a woman. I researched some points using facebook friends and others are ones I came up with myself. So the next time you’re feeling a little down about yourself, take a look at this list and have a feel good moment!

  1. Your bra has a second function as two extra pockets. A great place to store your phone, cash, cards etc when you don’t have a bag or purse handy.
  1. We have far more erogenous zones than men which means we are guaranteed more pleasure!
  1. The option to wear high heels, yes they hurt our feet sometimes but there’s nothing like the feeling they give you of looking like a million dollars
  1. Different hair styles we can have both short or long hair, do plaits, buns, ponytails etc without getting stick like men with long hair do
  1. Dying our hair any colour we want to!
  1. The difference between able to have a load of handbags and shoes (both high and flat) is acceptable – Natalie via facebook
