Girls On Top: Ones To Watch

Today I wrote a piece for The Telegraph on why students are actually the best people to be running business and you can read it here. What I honestly think is that girls are actually excelling at this at the moment. So thus I thought I’d bring you my favourite female blogs, the handiwork of girls around the country still in education, as well as some young female entrepreneurs and rising stars that you really must watch. Be in awe of these sassy ladies:


1. Teen Fun: Felix and Florrie
