“As women we don’t celebrate ourselves, our achievements and our milestones enough
– and that’s got to change. 

I created The Champagne Lounge to give every woman around the world a cheer squad. A community of women who dream as big as you do. Who want to have more, who want to do more, and who want someone to give them a f**king high-five when they make it a reality. And most importantly, do it with heaps of joy and fun along the way.

It’s time to celebrate the uniqueness of YOU”
