Embrace Paris: The Women


#EmbraceParis: Our itinerary


For the past four days and three nights, I've had the most incredible time bonding with an international group of nine talented, warm, funny and vivacious women. The occasion? #EmbraceParis, a social media gathering at the beautiful Parisian palace, Le Meurice.

Together, we deboned fish, whizzed around the streets of Paris in electric cars, visited an atelier where luxury handbags are hand-stitched, lunched in a castle, learned how to apply make-up, snapped photos of the most magical views of Paris, ate breakfast in bed, stretched our bodies and expanded our minds. But, most importantly, we forged a network of women determined to empower each other through positive peer support on social media.

I'll be sharing lots of information about the activities and sponsors in future posts, but first of all I would like to introduce you to the ladies of #EmbraceParis - 2014.
