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.
Today we salute the fantastically talented Delta Goodrem.
Delta is undeniably Australia’s princess of pop and has one of the best voices that the country has ever heard. She is an actor, a performer, a presenter, a songwriter and even a judge on the Australian version of the voice.
Delta is amazing not only on the stage but more importantly behind the limelight. She is a cancer survivor who regularly supports many charities including even donating a portion of her concert proceeds to the Delta Goodrem Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research Trust Fund. She is also an ambassador for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Delta also supports RADD (Recording Artists, Actors And Athletes Against Drunk Driving), to help raise awareness of the risks of drunk driving.
Delta is the epitome of a superstar and shows all little girls, that through hard work, perseverance and genuine Australian spirit girls really can run the world.

Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.Maggie Beer is the queen of Australian cooking talent. She has the simplest food philosophy that is to cook straight from the heart and make the most of each and every ingredient she uses. The reason why I love her is that her cooking is honest and truthful. Plus she has recipes that even I can handle!
Living in the Barossa, Maggie operates a business that has an extensive range of gourmet foods including quince paste (my ABSOLUTE FAV!), icecreams and verjuice. She has appeared many times on Masterchef and is quite the author with 10 cooking books!
In 2001 Maggie was awarded the Centenary Medal for service to Australian society through cooking and writing and in 2008 won the Australian Publishers Association’s Illustrated Book of the Year for ‘Maggie’s Harvest’. She was awarded Senior Australian of the year on 2010 and in 2012 was appointed a member of Order of Australia. How incredible is she!
In 2014 Maggie created the Maggie Beer Foundation which is committed to improving the well-being of the elderly by having access to food full of flavour and nutrients. Ultimately the foundation wants to influence government policy to ensure the delivery of better food services to those in our community who need it most.
You know that imaginary list of remarkable people that you wish you could have dinner with one day? Maggie is number one on my list. She is incredible and I would love the opportunity to absorb even just a little bit of her brilliance one day.
Thank you Maggie, you inspire me everyday to try and deliver good quality food to my family and to make the best food choices possible for my little ladies.

Rebel is Aussie girl done good and I am girl crushing HARD. She wears many hats, she is a rockin’ stand-up comedian, an actor, producer and writer.
Rebel was mentioned by Variety as one of the Top Ten Comics to Watch and has starred in some of the funniest films to be created. The movies, Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect have led to Rebel being one of the most sought-after comedic actors in Hollywood.
The best thing about Rebel is she isn’t just a pretty face. She is ri-dic smart too! In fact, I hear her first career choice was to pursue mathematics!! She even studied Law and Arts at the University of New South Wales.
Rebel is a girl after my own heart, she is a bloody hard worker, anyone can see that. Any success she receives was not just handed to her on a silver platter instead she has worked for it.
Little girls across the world can look at Rebel and see that you don’t need to be like all the other kids to make a really important mark on the world.
Thanks Rebel, you are my unrequited BFF and I thank you for giving my little ladies someone to aspire to be.
I hope to buy you a beer one day.
