We understand that a lot of wedding plans are changing at the moment, holidays postponed and nights out aren’t happening.  However, that doesn’t stop us girls having a party, especially the most important party of them all - the HEN PARTY.  The hen party is the ultimate tribute to your favourite girl, time to make them feel SO loved and have so much fun while they do it.  Follow our rules and tips to throw the perfect hen party and win those extra maid of honour/best friend points.

Guestlist - choose the guest list wisely, make sure you know who the bride wants to be involved and get all of their contact details, you don’t want any awkward late invites.
Games - Know your audience, you don’t want anything too risque in front of relatives, make sure you understand the bride's expectations, you want her to feel comfortable with whatever is going on.  You could go traditional with Mr and Mrs (with a private Zoom inquisition with the groom beforehand) to find out how well they know each other, or why not try getting creative and play “Guess the dress” - ask all guests to sketch what they think the dress will look like, the more extravagant the better.  Or if you dare try a few rounds of Would You Rather or Never Have I Ever, they always go down well.
Gift bags - make it extra special by preparing gift bags for all the attendees and sending them out beforehand - games, props, even cocktail ingredients. You could all recreate the brides top tipple or invent something new in her honour!   Add in slips of paper and ask attendees to write down advice for the bride, these can then be read out on the call and make it feel like you're all there in person.

Drinks - Pour yourself a drink and make sure you’ve all got plenty of prosecco on ice on standby, check-in with all the guests that they’re doing the same and maybe order something special for the bride to be delivered - her favourite champagne and some engraved flutes would make a lovely gift.
Playlist - create a shared playlist and ask everyone to add their party favourites to it, make sure it’s full of songs the bride loves and memories that you’ve shared, get ready for that singalong later!
Get dressed up and no cheating!  It might only be your top half on camera but use it as a chance to fully pamper yourself and put on your favourite dress.
Are you camera-ready?  Time for hair and makeup, make sure you’re treating this the same as a night out so go all-out glamour, dig out the eyelashes and pick out your favourite lipstick.

October

Gina Swire

This month we speak to Gina Swire, Self Love expert, mentor and manifesting queen. We believe a Power Woman is someone that tries to lift others up and that's exactly what Gina does! On an incredible mission and with an amazing story she inspires us and makes us really consider what's important. With a year like 2020 we think it's so important to reflect and make positive changes, so we hope introducing you to Gina and the amazing work she does will help that.


Q..At MERABI our Power Women are women who want to make a difference and that’s certainly what you’re doing, to start with can you tell us a bit about your mission.

My mission is to help one billion women fall madly in love with themselves and to get what they want out of life. It’s not about belittling men at all but lifting women up to be equal within the patriarchal society that we live in. It’s about empowering women and lifting them up.


“My mission is to help one billion women fall madly in love with themselves and to get what they want out of life.”


Q..It’s a term you hear a lot but what exactly is self love?

I’ll start by telling you what self love is NOT, self love is not self care. Self love is not just bubble baths and saying “I love my body.” Self love is what comes before self care. Acts of self care like going to the gym, eating well, filling out a gratitude journal, they all take will power, unless you have self love, when you have self love you work on your inner layer and these things just happen. There’s an identity shift after the blocks are removed which stand in the way of love.

Q..Have you always felt this way or can you talk us through your own journey to find self love?

Not at all, I grew up in a family and in a school where people would say “She loves herself” like it’s a negative. I was a plus size model for 14 years and felt constantly in flux, I wanted to be skinny but the agencies wanted me to be bigger, it really messed with my self worth, I felt like I wasn’t good enough as I was and I had a mean inner voice constantly telling me that I wasn’t enough.

In modelling it’s like living in a microcosm of a macrocosm of what happens to all women. We blame ourselves for everything, if clothes don’t fit, if a relationship doesn’t work out. We’re constantly telling ourselves that we should be skinnier or curvier.

I was studying nutrition while working in NYC and I was always really busy - working, partying, everything. It got to a point where I was numbing myself with alcohol and just by keeping busy all the time and working to please other people so I thought enough is enough. I quit it all, I quit modelling, I quit friendships that weren’t right for me and I quit dating. I became celibate and vegan and cleared out space in my life for something different. I got the signs from the universe -I don’t need to change. It’s profound but so simple and that’s what I teach to my ladies now.


You don’t need to have self love to have a happy relationship, but when you have true self love that can give your relationship and out-of-this-world kind of ultimate and healthy love.
