{Girl Crush Tuesday} Local superhero Robyn

We have some pretty hard girl crushes. These are the types of ladies that stamp their style on the world. They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance. Women that make the world a better place. Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.line4Today’s girl crush is a local lady named Robyn Rayner who has made a really big difference to her local community of Hill End. So much so that Robyn was actually nominated by another nester because she is that wonderful!

I am told that Robyn is a modern day superhero who saved Hill End from a nuclear dump legacy that would have been passed onto all of our children. She took on the Federal Government and won! Robyn was a fierce and knowledgeable spokesperson who was able to save our local area from eternal nuclear poison.

Not only is Robyn a superhero in the political arena but also manages to run a multi-award winning merino stud with her husband Geoff. On top of that, this beautiful woman also has taken part in making sure farmers out Dunedoo way have enough hay to feed their livestock after the recent fires and has even driven out there to drop it off.

How brilliant is it to see a local woman doing fantastic things for her area and those around her.

So, we salute you Robyn for being a modern day superhero.

{The Nest Writes} Empowered.

There is a shit-tonne-load of hatred lately towards Kim Kardashian and her naked selfies. She says she feels empowered, everyone else says nu-uh girlfriend. I am really interested in what makes someone feel empowered. So I am going to channel my inner law student and break it down.

According to The Oxford Dictionary, Empower means to “make someone stronger and more confident”. On an individual level, empowerment allows someone to feel self-reliant, powerful and resilient. The crux however is how empowerment is interpreted differently for each individual person. Read that again, EACH. INDIVIDUAL. PERSON. Continue reading

We have some pretty hard girl crushes. These are the types of ladies that stamp their style on the world. They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance. Women that make the world a better place. Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.line4Today’s girl crush is on the brilliant Julie Bishop.

Whether you support liberal, labor, greens or other I believe you would be hard-pressed not to respect Julie Bishop.

She always holds herself with confidence, is aware of her words and rarely puts a foot wrong.

She is a very powerful Australian woman, who shows all little girls that women can make a difference.

Julie was sworn in as Australia’s first female Foreign Minister on 18 September 2013. She has a law degree and was a practising solicitor prior to her entry into politics. She is now the deputy leader of the Liberal Party.

Thank you Julie for displaying real girl power in a very male driven industry, I imagine there are plenty of little ladies around the country who will aspire to be like you one day.

Today’s girl crush is on the brilliant Erin Molan.

quote

Erin is a pioneer in Australian television insofar as she is breaking the glass ceiling for girls everywhere. She is not afraid to show people that you need to be treated correctly. She won’t stand for bullying and she is very successful in a heavily male driven industry.

You will have seen Erin on The Footy Show, offering a powerful voice to the many female fans of NRL. She holds her own and is a brilliant addition to the panel. She is a sport commentator, journalist and all-round entertainer.

She possesses a fantastic style and confidence that shines through. She is intelligent, witty and informative.

We thank you Erin for giving our little girls an example of just how a woman can succeed in an area that not many women have been before.

{Girl Crush Tuesday} The sensationally strong Alisa

We have some pretty hard girl crushes. These are the types of ladies that stamp their style on the world. They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance.  Women that make the world a better place.

Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.line4Alisa Camplin is an absolute champion. She is strong and talented, clever and grounded – she really is an all-round Australian superstar.

Alisa is arguably Australia’s best ever aerial skier and she took out gold at the 2002 Winter Olympic and followed it up with a bronze in 2006. She was the first Australian skier to win medals at consecutive Winter Olympics.

The best thing about Alisa is that she is more than that, she is more than an athlete, more than an aerial superstar, she is a champion of a person.

Following the devastating loss of her son to congenital heart disease at just 10 days old, Alisa and her husband founded the Finnan’s Gift Project. Together, they have turned their heartbreaking grief into a way to help other families who are experiencing the devastation that is congenital heart disease. You can find more information about Finnan’s Gift here -> Finnan’s Gift.

On top of all that, Alisa is a power businesswoman who holds her own in the corporate world. She has not only worked for IBM but is an in demand executive coach and professional keynote speaker. Plus she balances work-life balance with her husband and gorgeous little daughter, Florence.

We salute you Alisa. Thank you for showing little girls everywhere that strength and power is not only physical but also comes from within. You really are the perfect role model.
