March is Women’s History Month. While many of us focus on our historical foremothers who’ve achieved being the “first” at something, we should also focus on those who broke barriers in their own right.
That’s why we’re celebrating this month with an ever-growing list of our partners who are founded, owned and operated by women. These trailblazers are turning their dreams into reality. That's why we’re excited to empower them and help grow their businesses because we believe in their visions. Because of the great quality and care they put into their products, you can find their them in many of our carefully curated collections!
To add to the celebration of Women’s History Month and female empowerment, we thought this Spotify playlist is the perfect accompaniment to this article.
Without further ado, let’s meet these amazing leaders!

Tracy Slocum - Pretty Rugged
Tracy’s favorite activity has always been boating on Lake George, however, the chilly mornings and evenings coupled with mixed weather left her and her family cold and wet. After months of looking for a blanket that was both beautiful and functional, it became clear that it didn't exist.
Working with top fashion consultants, Tracy created the world’s first blanket with luxe faux fur on one side and waterproof, windproof, washable RuggedTex® fabric on the other. The Pretty Rugged Blanket is the definition of liveable luxury. It’s modern, easy-care materials, designed to provide years of luxury, performance and style.

We’ve spent over a decade perfecting the art of connecting with others and creating lifelong memories over shared food and stories.

Delicious Experiences brings people together for intimate, person-to-person experiences that fill hearts and bellies, spark minds, and nourish souls.
Rosa Li - wildwonder
Growing up, my grandmother brewed tonics with a symphony of wild herbs. Health-wise, they worked wonders, from boosting my immunity to calming my stress. But taste-wise, they were hard to swallow.
As an adult, my love for food deepened and I gained a greater appreciation for the wild plants, medicinal herbs and rare spices of my childhood. I started to look for ways to give ancient tonics a modern twist. And so wildwonder was born - a bubbly, delicious, and nourishing beverage.
Every drink lifts you so you can create everyday wonders. And here's a simple one: purchase a bottle, and 5% of profits from this bottle goes towards causes that empower women and marginalized communities.
More recognitions to come...
Here at Snappy, we believe in equality and empowering others to follow their dreams – after all, we’re in the business of sending smiles! As we gain more partners who are founded, owned and operated by women, we will continue to add them to this list.
