Apolline - Balm Balm Co - What It Means To Be A Woman
In light of International Women’s Day this Sunday the 8th of March, I’ve asked some of the amazing women in my life to share what it’s like to be woman. I’ll be highlighting a variety of women from different backgrounds, careers and beliefs to bring you a selection of just how awesome being a woman is.
To kick things off is Apolline (Apples for short) - Founder of the most gorgeous lip balm product my lips have ever had on them, Balm Balm Co
Not only is Apolline a Girl Boss entrepreneur, she is also a Boss mother to two beautiful children. I asked her these question to get her take on what it means to be a woman.
What makes you feel empowered about being a woman?
A woman’s incredible ability to multitask is something I find super empowering. Those nights where I am cooking dinner, whilst helping with homework and doing my work all at the same time! It’s amazing how many hats we wear as women and to be able to switch between them in a matter of seconds is something that makes me feel like super woman!
What has been your most proudest moment in your life? Whether that be in your career or personal life.
I am so incredibly proud of how I am as a mother. From the moment my son was born my life became about being mama first and everything else second. It’s so challenging and you have to learn the true meaning of patience, but it’s so incredibly rewarding.
Why is it so important for women to support each other?
I feel like women in the past have always been positioned to feel that there was only room for one of us to succeed, but as society has evolved and women have taken back their deserved recognition it’s no longer about being the queen bee, it’s about being part of supporting QUEENS trying to BE the best they can be by cheering them on and helping them see how amazing they are. We have so much more to be gained from supporting each other. I would choose doing this with my fellow boss babes any day over trying to feel superior all on my own.
What's your go-to self care to feel like a queen?
To be real with you, I’m having a win these days if I’ve been able to wash and blow dry my hair 😂 but what makes me feel amazing is doing a face mask, getting my nails done and having some kid free time with the girls 🙌🏽
