A date night with MERABI

A date night with MERABI

 
So we all know by now that staying in is the new going out, but with this slower pace of life, it’s easy to fall into bad habits and take what we do have for granted.  If you’re lucky enough to be in lockdown with your partner then what better way to show your appreciation than having a date night in together.   If you're stuck without your partner then you can still try these ideas, just do them over Zoom instead. Below we share some of our key tips for a perfect date night with MERABI.

Forget just a man, the way to our heart is through our stomach too. Now just like going out to a restaurant make food the reason to get dressed up. This could be a picnic in the garden with a cold glass of champagne and a selection of cheeses, fruits and crackers or a sumptuous home-cooked meal indoors with plenty of candles and lashings of red wine.

If you’re anything like us by now, dry shampoo is your best friend and if it’s not got an elastic waistband it’s not happening.  Make it a date night to remember and use it as an excuse to ditch the sweatpants, give yourself a blow-dry and get in that dress that makes you feel amazing.  Dressing up and putting some makeup can instantly transform your mood and will set the tone for the night ahead.  Make sure he makes an effort too, get rid of that stubble and get ironing that shirt please Mr!
.
.
Take this time for each other, it can be so easy to assume that when you’re around each other all the time that that’s enough but what you need is QUALITY time.  Put your phones away, get the children to bed and make sure you are only focussed on each other.   Ask questions, listen to the responses, laugh and remember why you love them.

If you have a MERABI date night we would love to see your photos and feature them on Instagram, please make sure you tag us and use #MERABIdatenight.
Enjoy!

Gina Swire

This month we speak to Gina Swire, Self Love expert, mentor and manifesting queen. We believe a Power Woman is someone that tries to lift others up and that's exactly what Gina does! On an incredible mission and with an amazing story she inspires us and makes us really consider what's important. With a year like 2020 we think it's so important to reflect and make positive changes, so we hope introducing you to Gina and the amazing work she does will help that.


Q..At MERABI our Power Women are women who want to make a difference and that’s certainly what you’re doing, to start with can you tell us a bit about your mission.

My mission is to help one billion women fall madly in love with themselves and to get what they want out of life. It’s not about belittling men at all but lifting women up to be equal within the patriarchal society that we live in. It’s about empowering women and lifting them up.


“My mission is to help one billion women fall madly in love with themselves and to get what they want out of life.”


Q..It’s a term you hear a lot but what exactly is self love?

I’ll start by telling you what self love is NOT, self love is not self care. Self love is not just bubble baths and saying “I love my body.” Self love is what comes before self care. Acts of self care like going to the gym, eating well, filling out a gratitude journal, they all take will power, unless you have self love, when you have self love you work on your inner layer and these things just happen. There’s an identity shift after the blocks are removed which stand in the way of love.

Q..Have you always felt this way or can you talk us through your own journey to find self love?

Not at all, I grew up in a family and in a school where people would say “She loves herself” like it’s a negative. I was a plus size model for 14 years and felt constantly in flux, I wanted to be skinny but the agencies wanted me to be bigger, it really messed with my self worth, I felt like I wasn’t good enough as I was and I had a mean inner voice constantly telling me that I wasn’t enough.

In modelling it’s like living in a microcosm of a macrocosm of what happens to all women. We blame ourselves for everything, if clothes don’t fit, if a relationship doesn’t work out. We’re constantly telling ourselves that we should be skinnier or curvier.

I was studying nutrition while working in NYC and I was always really busy - working, partying, everything. It got to a point where I was numbing myself with alcohol and just by keeping busy all the time and working to please other people so I thought enough is enough. I quit it all, I quit modelling, I quit friendships that weren’t right for me and I quit dating. I became celibate and vegan and cleared out space in my life for something different. I got the signs from the universe -I don’t need to change. It’s profound but so simple and that’s what I teach to my ladies now.


You don’t need to have self love to have a happy relationship, but when you have true self love that can give your relationship and out-of-this-world kind of ultimate and healthy love.
