The women that inspire me and why…

Ahead of International Women’s Day, I thought I’d note down a handful of women I find inspirational. It’s not a conclusive list, but these girls are the bomb.

It’s an eclectic mix, but each is special and very inspirational to me in their own way.

I first discovered Cindy’s  work at school. I love the way she represents different women and their emotions – their weakness and their strength. Her work has inspired so much. My approach to art, decor, self perception.

My sister. 

My first best friend, I’ve always looked up to my sister. She inspires me because she’s deep, yet so loving, caring, supportive and really underestimates her strength. She’s modest, yet powerful.

Hayley McLean is a mummy blogger, that I have zero in common with, other than that we’re both bloggers and we both wear or heart on our sleeves. I find her inspirational because her writing is honest and so engaging, despite is leading very different lives. She also has some great blogging tips up her sleeve.

Lauren Saville. Lauren is the kindest, most open and accepting friend. Without her I wouldn’t have been where I am today. She champions women and helps to make her friends feel strong even at their lowest.

I love Cat’s approach. She was a fellow PR girl and then followed her dream and made a huge success of it. From her insane Yoga moves to her stunning jewellery collection. This girl has basically nailed it.
Rona Hunnisett. I worked with Rona on an insanely busy project and she was a huge inspiration. Her approach to PR and comms is basically just shit hot really.

My mum. My mum taught me what it is to be a strong woman. Her fierce ambition has set me up for life. I owe her so much. She also smashes glass ceilings – getting a degree in her 40s. What a babe.

An artist that embodies what is to be female. Her work raises important questions about domestic life, roles of the sexes and the family in an intricate and complex way.

A slight curve ball, but I have a huge amount of respect for the work Emma does to champion equality.
My besbian. Aka Charlotte Croft – hugely creative, modest and ambitious.

Annie Stirk. My first boss. Annie saw potential in me and worked hard to nurture it. In addition to that she’s a ver successful and dynamic business woman. And a lovely woman to boot.
