Considering I work in advertising, it’s probably no surprise watching adverts bring me pleasure. Recently, there’s been a particular one that’s caught my eye: an advert by Morrocan Oil. I first saw the Moroccan Oil campaign on YouTube. When it came on before a video, I didn’t even want to press skip as I was so intrigued to see the film, which is directed by Byrce Dallas Howard.
This campaign got me thinking about the great women who inspire me to turn my dreams into reality. My external influences would be Beyoncé, Oprah, and Tyra Banks (all of whom I’m very fortunate to be related to...Cough). Mainly, they’re the source of my inspiration because these women built their success from scratch. Self propelled and powerful, all they had was a dream and an opportunity, and they ran with it until they became household names.
I won’t spoil it for you, but it follows 6 beautiful women on their respective journeys to turn inspiration into action. Although their stories are all different, they are united by their achievements, beauty and Moroccan oil’s celebration of women.
My internal influence has to be my girls. I don’t talk much about them on here, neither have I mentioned them in any video. I have 4 main girls who are literally there for me every step of the way. I have to say that there’s a new addition to this group, making it 5 girls now. I hope she doesn’t mind me mentioning her. Everyday she inspires me to keep going like never before. I’ve been going at 100 miles an hour over the last 3 months, and quite frankly she’s been the driver.
