{Girl Crush Tuesday} The powerfully, brilliant Ita

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.

Today’s girl crush is on the fantastically, brilliant and ever opinionated Ita Buttrose.

The golden girl of Australian media, she is fierce, strong and incredibly beautiful. She is a powerful businesswoman with a mind for success who isn’t afraid to push boundaries.

Ita embodies the Australian spirit and is a champion for many charities and causes. She is passionately involved with Alzheimer’s Australia and Arthritis Australia. She is also involved with World Vision. She uses her national profile to raise awareness of breast cancer, HIV/AIDS and prostate cancer.

Ita is always immaculately presented and speaks with poise about many issues. She is a voice to the people and a voice of reason.

She is by far one of the best idols little ladies could aspire to be.

Thank you Ita for being an amazing inspiration to many Australians.

{Girl Crush Tuesday} The strong Ms Rowe

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.

This lady is power and strength. She is compassion and vulnerability.  She is today’s girl crush.

Jessica Rowe is an Australian television personality. She has covered many roles including news presenter, Studio 10 co-host, dancing with the star contestant and many more. She is an avid supporter of charities including the White Ribbon Foundation that fights against domestic violence.

What we admire about Jessica is her most important role. She is a mum to two beautiful little girls. Jessica bravely admitted that she experienced post-natal depression following the birth of her first daughter and thankfully she had the strength to share her fight. Many mothers across Australia (including myself) heard Jessica’s story and knew they weren’t alone. She heroically added a public face to this very private condition.

Jessica has shown that life is full of ups and down but the way you handle yourself and the way you confront the situation truly defines what sort of person you are. You can come through stronger than ever before.

We thank you Jessica for showing all little girls that you really can have a successful career, a loving marriage and beautiful children. You really are an inspiration to women everywhere.
