Hello March! Not only is the hope of Spring near, but it is also that month dedicated to women. Welcome National Women's History Month.
We know that women have struggled throughout the years to give us the opportunity we have today. It's a great feeling that today we are not taking that for granted. In fact, we here from BPure Beauty Bar would like to celebrate the top five women of our day. Get ready and hold on to your chairs girls, here are the top 5 most successful and influential woman of our time.
