Empowered Women Empower Women

~ “Girls with dreams become women with vision.” ~

{After scouring the Internet looking for the author of this quote, we came up empty-handed – kindly comment below if you know the author}

Today is significant for so many reasons – International Women’s Day is a worldwide event, highlighting the social+economic+cultural+political achievements and contributions made by women. This day seeks not to establish women as better than men, but as EQUALS in a world that has rarely allowed this – until now. Today is a day to recognize where we started, acknowledge where we are now, and to fight for where we want to be. Today, on March 8th 2019, we celebrate women’s accomplishments and strength!

Today, we watch women stride, push, struggle, fight, claw their way to the top – in spite of societal pressures – finally receiving recognition for their courage and strength. And yes, there is still a looooooong way to go but, as we reflect on these past years, we can see the leaps and bounds that we have made to furthering gender equality in today’s society:

  • The #MeToo campaign went viral, giving women a voice where they didn’t have one before and uniting them with others who suffered in the same way.
  • In 2018, female candidates broke countless records for numerous positions in the United States government.
  • As of summer 2018, women can legally drive in Saudi Arabia, allowing them to apply for a license and granting them more freedom than they’ve ever had before.
  • If you haven’t seen the movie Wonder Woman that came out in 2017 starring Patty Jenkins, do it, because it now holds the record for the highest-grossing superhero film to date.
  • Hollywood actresses stood up against sexual harassment and abuse by uniting and wearing black on the red carpet as a way of speaking out against famous actors, producers and other powerful men who had wronged them.
  • The U.S. House of Representatives elected a record number of women, with at least 90 women expected to make their way to Washington, D.C. Women, and women of colour in particular, broke records during these elections.

If all of this can happen in just a few short years, who’s to say what will happen in the next 5, 10, 20 years of female activism across the world. We are slowly but steadily moving towards a world of inclusion, equality, freedom and understanding. As a small local business run by women for women, we couldn’t be more proud of the strides seen here in the past few years!!

We are ALL strong like a girl.

~ Empowered women empower women ~

~ Empowered people empower people ~

Let’s create a society where your gender, race, status and sexuality don’t affect human rights but, instead, add to who one is as a person. Build up those around you so that they can then build up those around them. Together, we can create an equal & liberal society of kind, loving people.

Happy International Women’s Day, Ponytail Posse!

The Best Advice Your Mom Ever Gave You!

Road Trip Rule Tank Top | Lace Brick Design

Happy Spring, Ponytail Posse! We are so so happy that the snow has left and we can finally see some green grass springing from the dirt. With the month of May, we anticipate beautiful flowers, warm sunny days and of course the celebration of Mother’s Day!

Whether you call her in tears or laughing hysterically, somehow mom just always seems to know the right thing to say. We find comfort in the words coming from the strong woman that raised us! What is the best advice your mom has ever given you?! We asked you babes (over on our Instagram) to share the best advice your mom ever gave you so that we could pass the sage words on to our fellow Ponytail Posse members. Here are the top 5 answers submitted by YOU!

Love Studs | Lace Brick Design
  1. “Always know your loved and never stop with your dreams” – @aubb___
  2. “Remember if something goes wrong, if it wasn’t part of the plan, it is now.” – @saragirletzart
  3. “It’s not all about winning, being the faster or the strongest. Just go out there and have fun.” – @c__kidd
  4. “Be yourself.” -@mandlucy
  5. “Girls can do anything. Because she instilled that in me, not only do I run my own business but I am the farmer and not the farmer’s wife.” – @farmgirljolie
Alpine Necklace | Lace Brick Design

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves! Five pieces of advice aimed to empower us, love us and push us to always strive for more. We are eternally grateful for the strong mothers who raised us to be the fierce, independent women that we are! Without them, we might be lost, wandering around without their infinite wisdom running through our minds day in and day out. Time doesn’t matter…be it 8am or 10pm, moms always seem to have the best advice when it comes to cooking, relationships, trouble with work or simply how to do your laundry without completely ruining your fave new dress!

Jackie Lace Brick Design

Jackie Chemelli

Founder+Owner

Hi!! I’m Jackie, owner/creator of Lace Brick Design.
And here are my LOVES (in a somewhat particular order):
Burgers, the rain, my friends & their tiny humans, crafting, writing, yoga, time in the mountains and solo travel adventures.
I do my best creating barefoot and I learned a long time ago that the creative juices will not flow unless my lips are adorned with some form of lip balm!!

I trust strongly in three core values:
{1} Love your friends and family hard
{2} Design a life that supports your passions
{3} Live in a way that makes the world a softer+prettier place to be and always be authentic

I am unsure whether creativity is an innate gift or if an ability to aesthetically design can be taught. I do know, however, that I have always craved creating. Even as a young girl, I was a maker. I would design jewelry boxes out of egg cartons for my mom, wear belts as headbands, and countlessly rearrange the furniture in my bedroom (…the paint on the walls fell victim too).

Design and adventure have consistently been the pulse of my being and, so, it
was only natural that Lace Brick Design birthed out of a solo, soul-searching trip to Vancouver Island, BC during the Spring of 2013. Walking past a bead store near Kits Beach, Vancouver, I was drawn inside. Knowing that I would be spending hours on a beach, kicking up sand and counting waves, I decided that I would dabble in the art of earring design (why not, right?). I purchased all of the required supplies from the little bead store and voila, a week later I had handmade earrings coming out the wazoo! Adding these to the already accumulating pile of pretty little DIY creations in a corner of my home, I knew my next step: Lace Brick Design.

Lace Brick Design is a lifestyle brand for the adventure-seeking female. In this light, we design jewelry, apparel and camping supply to empower passionate adventurers, lovers of the woods, road-trippers, full moon chasers, and backroad takers! Based near the heart of the Rockies in Calgary AB, Lace Brick Design is dedicated to building strong community vibes and styling passionate, fearless females. We are grateful for a tribe of 18k+ followers on Instagram and over 15+k Facebook peeps! We even have our own official hashtag: #ponytailsandmountaintrails! Alongside our online shop, you can also find Lace Brick Design in 60+ stores across Canada, including Hallmark! Lace Brick Design LOVES being involved with community! We can be found setting up shop at local markets, holding workshops, contributing to local events, and collaborating with other amazing grassroots businesses. Our community members (dubbed the ‘Ponytail Posse’) are THE best around town and we absolutely consider each one of them a part of the Lace Brick Design family!

What began as jewelry design has grown to become so much more: an outlet for all
forms of creative expression, new friendships, feminine empowerment, constant
learning, expansion of an entrepreneurial spirit and now a new line for little girls, Baby Brick! Thank you for joining us on this adventure!! xo

After 10+ years of working in an office, Debbie realized that she is an entrepreneur at heart. Freedom is her biggest value and she wanted to be able to work from home, travel and never have a limit on her income. Debbie also LOVES inspiring and helping others pursue their dream work. When she sees an entrepreneur who is passionate about what they do, she instantly wants to help. Debbie started as a Virtual Assistant back in May of 2016 and her small VA business grew pretty quickly. Realizing that as a solopreneur, she would only be able to serve a small amount of clients, she set out to create a business model where more small businesses could receive the support they need. In January 2108 Roche Online Business Services was born.

As well as having a vast administrative and customer service background, Debbie holds a Bachelor of Science as well as various courses in media and communications as well as Project Management from BCIT. In January 2107 she completed the Foundations in Digital Marketing at Red Academy.

Debbie was born in Scotland but has lived in Canada for the past 12 years. Alongside running a business, Debbie runs a podcast called DebTalks. She is also on the board of the Kitsilano Showboat and in her spare time (i.e. 6am in the morning) can be found working out at her local barre studio, doing yoga or trying to meditate.
