So what is going to make this year different? What differences do you want to make in your own life, in the lives of others and for our planet?
Here’s what we hope to achieve this year and maybe, just maybe, this encourages you to take on the year with a smile and contagious courage.
WE WANT WOMEN TO APPRECIATE & LOVE THEIR BODIES
Have you ever heard of local South African model, Marciel Hopkins? Well, we discovered her on our Instagram feed during our December break and what an inspiration she is! She is all about advocating that all women are beautiful, no matter what shape or size your body is.
This is what Marciel says: “About body positivity: It’s for every size, age and gender. It’s about being positive about your body and spreading that positivity to others. The ultimate goal is to combat unrealistic ideals about beauty and health, as well as to promote self-acceptance. Your worth is not based on what others think of your body. You are the only one who decides how attractive you are. You are entitled to love your body in whatever shape and size it comes.”
We’re with you on this Marciel and that is why our necklaces and bracelets are available in 3 different sizes and all our earrings are sizeless because one size does not fit all! Visit Marciel’s Facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/marcielhopkins1/
WE WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT YOU
We always love to hear from all of you, so we’re giving you an open invitation to send us messages on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/migliojewellery/ to tell us more about you and how you came across our brand and what our jewellery or even your experience with us means to you. Maybe you wore Miglio on your wedding day? Maybe your husband bought you a beautiful gift from us? Or maybe you and your mom share a special love for our jewellery? We want to hear from you!
WE WANT TO REACH OUT TO OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY MORE
In South Africa, we are sadly surrounded by poverty and unemployment so we want to reach out to those in need and either provide more funding to charities or teach skills that can build someone’s future or to simply be involved. If you would like us to get involved in your cause, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
WE WANT TO BE MORE INVOLVED IN HELPING OUR ENVIRONMENT
We only have one earth and we want to make it our mission this year to improve our footprint on the earth by being more economical in our production, packaging and office use.
WE WANT TO HAVE MORE FUN THIS YEAR
Not to say that we don’t have fun here at Miglio because we certainly do, but we just want to have more of it. Life is too short to not enjoy the silly moments in the office or to crack those wise jokes. As our CEO Jenny says, have fun along the way!
These are just some of our goals for 2017. Subscribe to our newsletters to see what we get up to this year!
