Hi Beauty Connects!
What a year it's been for women. This year marked 100 years of women being given the vote but also prompted so much political and social debate about women's issues including campaigns such as #metoo.
We meet inspirational women every day, whether it's the woman you pass on the school run every morning, the woman you sit next to in the office or whether it's the woman that serves you your daily coffee. As women, we can all inspire each other.
With this in mind, I wanted to ask some of the amazing women at Avon HQ, for one piece of advice they'd give their younger selves, sisters, daughters or nieces.
Sandra, Senior Digital Platform Specialist
I would tell myself to worry less about what others think and be happy with myself.
Sam, eCommerce Manager
Don't be afraid to fail, things don’t always go your way and success comes from learning and trying again!
Rene, Execution and Integration Lead
I would tell myself or my daughter Millie, to not take things so personally! ‘You can’t change other people only yourself’.
Niki, Influencer Marketing Lead
Life is too short to spend time worrying about things like; will I get a good job, will I be able to buy a house, will I get married… Just enjoy yourself as these things have a way of falling into place.
Emily, Social Marketing Lead
Always be yourself and don’t be taken for granted.
Karma, eMail Executive
The piece of advice I’d give my younger self would be that life is a marathon, not a sprint. It’s ok to not be at the same stage in life as everyone else.
Alisha, Social Media Executive
Sometimes you have to ride the storm before the calm, everything happens for a reason even if you don’t know it yet!
Emma, Senior Advertising and Offline Media Executive
Don’t ever be afraid to step outside your comfort zone - that’s where all the best things happen.
What would your one piece of advice be?

I would say enjoy yourself more before you settle down.

I think I would tell myself not to worry so much about what other people think !! We are who we are and should be proud of that !! It would be boring if we were all the same !! Shaz xx

I would say be yourself and be happy in your skin. Make the most of what you were born with and don't worry what everyone else thinks.

My advice would be: don't believe everything you're told. Most people have an agenda to push. Do your own research and form your OWN opinions. Don't parrot other people's. xx

Love this post! Great advice girls
I would go back and tell myself "If it doesn't feel right, then it probably isn't"
We all live and learn!!
