Fierce Females; 1-9: Deborah Harry, Oprah Winfrey, Madonna, Queen Elizabeth, Gwen Stefani, Betty White, S.E. Hinton, Rosie Batty and Grace Coddington
OMG! Can you believe today is the last Sunday of the year?! Which means today is the last day in the Fierce Females series for 2015. Throughout the year I’ve celebrated famous women who have inspired me throughout my life, be it through their music, books, movies or general bad ass-ness.
Fierce Females; 10-18: Drew Barrymore, Lisa Tamati, Cher, Lucille Ball, Edie Sedgwick, Julie Louis-Dreyfus, Dr. Jill Bolte-Taylor, Bjork, J.K. Rowling
Fierce Females; 19-27: Turia Pitt, Agnetha & Frida, Meryl Streep, Vivienne Westwood, Caitlyn Jenner, Patti Smith, Sally Pearson, Iris Apfel, Dannii Minogue
So who gets the honour of being the final fiercest of the fierce females? Well instead of lauding and extolling the virtues of some celebrity that I love I wanted to shine a light on all the women who’ve made a huge impact on my life. Yup, that’s right, I wanted to give a huge shout out to the
every day, average, superstar women I have the privilege of calling mum, sister, bestie, friend, aunt, colleague, teacher, etc.
Fierce Females; 28-36: Josephine Baker, Cate Blanchett, Betsey Johnson, Grace Kelly, Joan Rivers, Frida Khalo, Pat Benatar, Lisa Marie Presley, Audrey Hepburn
I’ve had some strong women in my life who have been amazing role models. From my mum who raised four fab kids (if I do say so myself) and continues to be a full time carer to my dad and believes she’s 73 going on 37! My gorgeous sister who continues to put up with my stinky moods on a daily basis and still manages to love and support me and take awesome blog pics for me! My bestie, Tez, who’s literally been there since day dot (baby besties!) and continues to laugh at my lame jokes and want to go on all my crazy adventures.
To all the beautiful friends I have now and have had (even those drunk gals I met in a pub toilet or 3) who have all taught me valuable lessons about life along the way (and fabulous fashion tips).
THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU! YOU LADIES ROCK AND TRULY ARE FIERCE FEMALES!
Fierce Females; 46-50: Ita Buttrose, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ann & Nancy Wilson, Anjelica Houston, Chrissie Amphlett, Marilyn Monroe
In the 2016 I’ll be bringing you a new weekly series – Sunday Sessions; The Soundtrack to My Life. Each week I’ll be talking about my favourite bands and musicians and share with you all why I love them so. Until then, I hope you’ve all enjoyed the Fierce Females series and have maybe identified a few fabulous women in your own lives.
