We’re proud to ooze girl power as a women-led small business and cherish the opportunity to share our values as individuals and as a company with you. When we thought about a campaign that would really make us excited to share, it kept coming back to the same thought - we want to showcase YOU! There are so many badass women in our 41 Winks community. The SHE-E-O's, the artists, the bloggers, the creators - they inspire us and we know they'll inspire you too. These DREAM GIRLS are all super cool chicks makin' moves in the world.

1 // KELLY ✨ @ruesaintpaul
Founder of Rue Saint Paul
WHAT DOES OUT OF OFFICE MEAN TO YOU? "It reminds me of the importance of maintaining balance in my life and the need to fight for it. The to-do list never gets shorter and there's never a good time to unplug. However, taking time away to recharge mentally, physically and emotionally makes us better leaders and it should be at the top of our lists."
2 // CASSANDRA ✨ @goinmeditations
Meditation and Yoga Nidra Leader
WHAT DOES BLOCK OUT THE HATERS MEAN TO YOU? "It means sorting through, and blocking out, the old cultural narratives that rest means "we're weak." That way, I can claim the importance of taking time each day to rest and recharge. I feel like the quality of my rest is the quality of my life, and I want a high quality life so I get high quality rest! It also holds another layer of meaning to me; blocking out the limiting beliefs I have about myself and what I’m capable of. It’s a great reminder to keep expanding my sense of self, to follow my dreams and not let myself, or others hold me back."

WHAT DOES GIRL POWER MEAN TO YOU? "For us, we think community, confidence and innovation.

Together we are stronger, more creative, and empowered to use this momentum to create meaningful change. The word Girl Power is your ultimate cheerleader and mentor! Spread it!"

7 // PAM ✨ @heypamd

WHAT DOES GIRL POWER MEAN TO YOU? "The natural purpose of the woman in itself is powerful. Since becoming a mom I have a new found respect for women. We can really do it all! It's amazing how our bodies change and adjust. GIRL POWER to me means to recognize our strengths and remain strong no matter what challenges we face because history shows we will and can get through it."
8 // SABI ✨ @sabidatoolalji
Creative Consultant & Fashion/Lifestyle Writer
WHAT DOES PILLOWTALK MEAN TO YOU? "Pillowtalk resonates with me simply because of my nightly rituals. I try and cultivate healthy habits before going to bed, and one of them is to take stock of the day and prepare for a better tomorrow. Whether I journal these thoughts down, meditate on them, or simply close my eyes, it's important to me to have some "pillowtalk" with myself. It's definitely part of my self-care routine."
9 // HANNAH ✨ @hnnhphng

11 // CHRISTINA ✨ @bo_me_yooo
Manager of @slvyvll and Co-Founder of @napgirls
WHAT DOES DISCO NAP MEAN TO YOU? "DISCO NAP is a lifestyle and there's no other one I'd rather live. Between working from sun up to sun down, jet-setting every weekend, hitting 2-3 shows a week and picking up new hobbies - a DISCO NAP is all you need to keep up. It keeps you on your toes and I wouldn't want it any other way."
12 // SAM ✨ @ssampicardal

WHAT DOES BLOCK OUT THE HATERS MEAN TO YOU? "I make my own rules... my worth does not lie int he opinions of others... refusing to allow the noise of this world to drown out the truth that I know... beauty has far more than one definition... joy, creativity, love, success and beauty are all here to experience now, not on the other side of weight loss... her success does not mean my failure, her beauty does not diminish my own, her creativity does not hinder my ability to create."

WHAT DOES DISCO NAP MEAN TO YOU? "They are KEY to my ability to function. DISCO NAP to me means pausing, holding, resting while still getting ready to groove. It's that little jive you do before hopping into double dutch... KNOWING you're about to go in and kill it but waiting for the right moment to shine."
16 // ALANNA ✨ @alanna_martine

17 // ELYSIA ✨ @elysiamann
Creator of @dopedisco, Marketing DREAM GIRL at 41 Winks
WHAT DOES DISCO NAP MEAN TO YOU? "A disco nap has two meanings: first being the glittery, glamorous, dope dreams I have while snoozing; second being the self-awareness of needing a little disco nap-- a break from the energy, some self-care in the midst of a crazy week, or a reset before needing to be at full glam capacity."
18 // TAYLOR ✨ @taylorsegal
Writer, and in TV Development at Broadway Video
WHAT DOES DISCO NAP MEAN TO YOU? " When you're busy doing all the things, a disco nap is your saving grace. The transition from the work hustle in the day to a night on the town in the eve, can be something only for superheroes. But! The disco nap is that extraordinary 15 min snooze to help you keep the fire burning all the night through."

20 // MORGAN ✨ @mogiie
Co Collective, Previous DREAM GIRL at 41 Winks as Head of Brand & Biz Development
WHAT DOES BLOCK OUT THE HATERS MEAN TO YOU? "My stressors attach at night, right before I hit the hay. Am I having a quarter-life crisis? Am I allowed to have two of those? There's a time and a place for everything, and when bedtime comes I do my best to clock out and block out. Letting go of things that don't serve me is a superpower I'm trying to acquire."
21 // RINAT ✨ @rinatsherzer
WHAT DOES BLOCK OUT THE HATERS MEAN TO YOU? "For me blocking out the haters is walking in your path regardless of what people have to say. When things get rough, as they naturally do at times, it's a perfect time to go inwards away from the outside noises, close your eyes and find your center."
22 // VENTURE ✨ @iamventure
Creative genius with a focus on music and creative direction
WHAT DOES BLOCK OUT THE HATERS MEAN TO YOU? "To me this means, forget the noise about what's in or what's not. No matter what you do or create as long as you're doing it for you, then that's all that should matter!"
23 // MEGAN ✨ @spurrelly
Community Editor at Conde Nast Traveller & co-founder of @theborderlessproject
WHAT DOES BLOCK OUT THE HATERS MEAN TO YOU? "It means putting my creative self out there and focusing on those who empower - while brushing off anything that tells me I "can't". It also means using platforms you have to be a voice for all women and block out hate of any kind. Together we are infinite!"
24 // OLIVIA ✨ @ohleeeevia
Own very own CEO & Creative Director of 41 Winks
WHAT DOES BLOCK OUT THE HATERS MEAN TO YOU? "It means hard work. I've always struggled with the phrase "be yourself" because... what does that even mean? I want to be myself, always! But what does being my true self mean to me? It takes (is taking) hard work to figure that out - it takes self-exploration, workshops, nights of dancing, books recommended by friends, lots & lots of music and surrounding myself with supportive people along the way. To me, life is about learning about yourself and being excited for the adventure that comes with that process, paying no mind to ANYONE trying to bring you down as it happens."
25 // RACHAEL ✨ @missgowhitely
Contemporary Art Specialist and Head of Midseason & Online Sales at Christie's - and sister to @ohleeeevia ;)
WHAT DOES DISCO NAP MEAN TO YOU? "I travel a lot for work and need to be totally alert, effective (and charming) while I'm at it. A disco nap to me is a power nap that fuels me for those client-facing, high-intensity moments - even if I've just stepped off an 8-hour red-eye flight."
26 // KRISTIN ✨ @kristinmcgee
Author of Chair Yoga & proud Mom, Peloton Yoga & Meditation Instructor
WHAT DOES BLOCK OUT THE HATERS MEAN TO YOU? "Listening to your own voice and not letting negative people get you down. Remember it's better to always have positing things to say about yourself and others."
27 // DAMARIS ✨ @marisdamaris
Co-creator & co-sister with the curly hair vibes of @vavavoomcurls, NYC licensed massage therapist @dameunmasaje
WHAT DOES BLOCK OUT THE HATERS MEAN TO YOU? "No matter what you face on your daily basis you make the decision to what you will believe and listen to. Often times we can get hit from different directions but staying positive and keeping my head up has helped me to believe that nothing is impossible."
28 // KATERINA ✨ @kat_papa
Carter's Corporate HQ, previous 41 Winks Intern DREAM GIRL
WHAT DOES DISCO NAP MEAN TO YOU? "DISCO NAP isn't just a phrase, it's a way of life. It's how we make things happen. When the lights are out, it's me time. It's dream time. Then I wake up and it's go time. Dreams are where I get my inspiration, energy, and beauty rest of course (need it). They take me anywhere, where I can be anyone and do anything. They tell me so much about myself and what I want, teach me to think outside the box, beyond my roots, and reach for the stars."
29 // DETRA ✨ @onewomannyc1
A friend, and talented performer on a mission to tell her story
WHAT DOES BLOCK OUT THE HATERS MEAN TO YOU? "It lets me know that while I may encounter much negativity along my journey each day, every night as my body rests and gets rejuvenated, my mind releases the lies that others use to control and weaken my spirit, while fortifying every brain cell with the powerful life that only comes from knowing I was created to impact my world with the power of love and change."
