Moore Swatches: November Polish Pickup – Bada$$ Women


“Who are we? What we run? We run the world
Who run the world? Girls!”

You may know the lyrics from the well-known song, Run the World (Girls) from Ms. Sasha Fierce herself, Beyoncé. When Beyoncé released this song in 2011 from her album, 4, it was my anthem. With lyrics, like

“You can’t hold me (you can’t hold me)
I work my 9 to 5 and I cut my check
This goes out to all the women getting it in
Get on your grind” and;

“Strong enough to bear the children (children)
Then get back to business” and;

“I’m repping for the girls who taking over the world
Help me raise a glass for the college grads”

You can help but to be reminded that we are determined, brilliant, strong, motivated, courageous, sexy, caring, extraordinary, capable, nurturing, daring, pleasant, funny, beautiful, the list goes on and and on. Who are we? We are WOMEN!!!!
