Hey there our dearest #Glowers!!!
In 2015, some very talented and beautiful women made our list of Women Of The Year. While these women have continued to make us proud, there are a few others who have caught our attention.
Everything that has happened in 2016 just boils down to this very moment when we announce our #monatswomenoftheyear16
WHY? (you may ask)
This is the moment when we celebrate the hard work of a few women who have stood out in 2016 - we absolutely respect their hustle! (wink). They have worked hard throughout the year to the best of their potentials , improving every single time, and most importantly they have kept up to everyone's expectations and delivered every time!
