October 3rd marks a special day for Inspirations & Celebrations as it’s the date this lifestyle website first launched six years ago. It’s amazing to think how much our online lifestyle guide has changed and grown over the years. 

To celebrate the 6th Anniversary of Inspirations & Celebrations, this month we’re excited to present a Nordstrom Shopping Spree Giveaway. The lucky winner of this giveaway will receive a $250 Nordstrom Gift Card, which can be used online or in-stores.  

Inspirations and Celebrations 6th Anniversary and Nordstrom Shopping Spree Giveaway

The story of how Inspirations & Celebrations came to be…

Six years ago, the concept to develop Inspirations & Celebrations was barely just an idea. It all started one Fall day when I was imagining the future.

While I had always enjoyed creative projects and a wide range of interests (from fashion and beauty to home decorating and travel), I never really wanted to pursue just one. So I asked myself – how could I combine all the things I love most into one entity? That’s when the lightbulb went off – start a lifestyle website! 

Because of my dream to create something that had the power to inspire, educate, and empower women, Inspirations & Celebrations was launched. After years of hard work, determination, and persistence, what began as a hobby has since turned into a business – one that’s driven by passion, love, and inspiration. 

Why we love our fans

Since launching the website in 2011, we’ve grown into a community of hundreds of thousands of kind-hearted, enthusiastic, and motivated women from all over the USA (and even in Canada!). Our loyal fans and followers have always shown tremendous support and love (for both our website and each other), which speaks volumes nowadays, especially in the world we live in. It always touches our hearts to read comments left by I&C readers and followers, as their kindness and gratitude is evident in their messages. 

Who is the Inspirations & Celebrations reader?

She’s a smart, savvy gal who strives to become the best person she can be. She often enjoys a variety of interests, ranging from fashion to fitness and beyond, and always has fun learning new things that make life more interesting. She seeks to find inspiration each day and looks to add a dose of whimsy and delight to everyday life. 

Why we love our team of #GirlBoss babes

In addition to the growing I&C community, over the past year, we’ve been excited to grow our team through collaborations with industry insiders, such as Beauty, Fitness, Health & Wellness, and Entertaining experts. These inspiring women help teach our readers about everything from innovative beauty products and body-shaping exercise regimens to must-read tips on party-planning, and so much more.

What we value

As we continue to expand our horizons by launching new projects, collaborating and partnering with more brands and industry experts, and provide more value for our readers, we look back on where we started six years ago – a moment of inspiration that led to a passion-driven business that has touched the lives of women everywhere. Since our mission is to educate and empower women through inspiration and information, we look forward to growing the I&C community and inspiring more women to enjoy life to the fullest.

With that said – cheers to the past 6 years, and to many more years ahead!
