    • International Women's Day








      Today marks the 106th International Women's Day, a day dedicated to commending women and their achievements, and a time to reflect on what we need to do to help make this world a fairer place for us all. Team Odabash feel greatly that the cause is something which should be continued to be celebrated, as well as given awareness to and Melissa herself is a true advocate for supporting women.

      Melissa has always been passionate about advocating women and helping all women to feel their very best in their own bodies, So, in 2015 Melissa launched her Mastectomy swimwear line, alongside the UK based breast cancer charity, Future dreams which was designed to give the confidence back to women who have suffered from the disease.

      The line still oozes in style, meaning women can still feel great despite what they have been through and amazingly, all proceeds from the range go to the Future Dreams breast cancer charity, the line can be purchased here.

      Following this, Melissa was awarded the first Future Dreams Humanitarian Award. This was given to Melissa as recognition for her role and efforts in working alongside the charity to both help fund-raise and ease the process of women who are going through and have been through this battle.

      Melissa feels passionately that is so important to keep up the awareness of the mastectomy line and the charity, recently having spoken on Gaby Roslin's BBC London radio show promotion this amazing cause for women.

      Melissa also often attends and speaks at events aimed at endorsing the achievements of women and what they can do, pictured here at the women powered talk last year at Burberry, which was held to show women how they can build a brand. This is just another amazing way Melissa enjoys giving her support to other women.

      This week, Melissa attended a Women's event held at the London Stock Exchange, where Sherry Coutu spoke to inspirational women leading businesses across the UK and female CEO'S who are at the early stages of their career. Melissa is a firm believer in women supporting other women and commends women celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.

      So today, throughout the world women and men are encouraged to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities. Wondering how can we celebrate International Women’s Day? There are in fact, so many ways! Around the world there are talks, gatherings and rallies. Some women are also striking economically by refusing to work, you can find out more on https://www.womensmarch.com/ There is also a theme created by IWD, where they are asking everyone to be #BeBoldForChange, whether this be organizing your own event or making a pledge to speak out about equality, we can each play our part in creating sustainable equality for all.

    • Beach Body Confidence - Competition Time!

      Now that the sunshine has made an appearance and the feel good vibes of summer are in full swing we felt it was only appropriate to celebrate by teaming up with our good friends at Vita Liberata and launching another fabulous competition.

      So, now everyone’s jetting off to sunnier shores the main question on our lips is are you beach body ready? Well in our opinion EVERYONE should answer yes to that!

      Here at Melissa Odabash we believe everyone is beach body ready, as long as you have confidence. There’s no need to cleanse, detox, or go crazy in the gym and you most definitely CAN eat ‘carbs before Marbs’. In an age where social media constantly pressures us into believing there’s only one version of the ultimate beach body it’s important to take a step back and realise that as long as you are happy and confident in yourself you are beach ready. After all, it’s better to have a fun and rounded life than obsess over your figure - especially in summer!

      Whatever your shape or size swimwear season can be tough, as we all have our own insecurities when it comes to putting on a swimsuit or bikini. We know that having beach body confidence can sometimes be a bit easier said than done, so that’s why we’ve put together some helpful hints and tips below to help you feel your very best.

      To say London is the place to be at the moment is a complete understatement. With London Fashion Week ending yesterday and the BRITS tonight, it's fair to say that anyone who is anyone in the style and showbiz industry has been seen walking our streets of late and what a fashion extravaganza we shared in over the last five days!

      Here are the top four trends we'll be championing come Autumn...
