International Women’s Day (IWD) is like the ultimate girl power party on March 8th every year! It’s a day where we all come together to celebrate the fierce, fabulous, and unstoppable force that is womankind, right?

I always think of IWD as a giant high-five to all the amazing women who have kicked down doors, challenged the normal and fought for their rights in every corner of the world. It’s a time to honor US, girls who inspire us to dream big and break barriers.


As we get ready to celebrate this day, let’s spread some love and support for the fabulous women-owned local brands that are rocking the scene, from cozy home decor to mouthwatering foodie finds and everything in between, these brands are all about passion, creativity, and making life more beautiful.

Scroll down and let’s celebrate the incredible women behind these gems as we explore your new favorite go-to brands across home decor, accessories, food, and beyond!

You bet Mandy’s had to be in the top 3 of this list, owned by Rebecca and Mandy,  the sisters that played so smartly their strengths to create this concept: Mandy came up with an original menu while Rebecca designed the interior of the restaurants – the perfect duo!.  Many years after they have built the most inspiring, healthy and adorable line of local gourmet salads spots in the city that we feel SO proud of.
