In 2020, become your own muse!

by marlies|dekkers

With 2020 peeking around the corner, it is time to say goodbye to a marvelous 2019. Ever since I started marlies|dekkers, my dream has been to empower women. And every year, we’ve taken great steps to do so!

In 2019, two new muses have been added to the list, inspiring us in many ways. Kitchen goddess and true feminine feminist Julia Child showed us that ‘traditional feminine activities’, such as the art of cooking, can be reclaimed as an empowering art form for modern women. And of course, to do it with gusto! Musical supernova Billie Holiday taught us to fight injustice with dazzling glamour, like she did when she transformed her pain and anger into musical masterpieces.

My New Year’s wish for you is to take in their unique stories, to let them inspire and empower you, and to write your own story. In 2020, become your own muse! Dare to dream, dare to grow, dare to be.

Happy New Year!
