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
It’s run by 16-year olds doing their GCSEs, do I need to say more?
2. Food: The Hungry Romantic
Beaut recipes, artsy photos of tea, Emma’s got style.
Sweet, easy to follow and really quite inspiring.
2. Sex: Slutever
Just seriously readable.
3. Beauty: Liana Beauty
Every product, trick and hair-do you’ve ever wanted to know, in one place.
4. Fashion: La Petite Anglaise
Keeping up with what Ella wears every day is pretty much how I start my mornings.
She’s got epic eyeliner and very cool hair indeed.
5. Film: Ultra Culture
Because we all need a dose of sarcasm from time to time.
Amber Atherton’s behind this jewellery business and she’s got a serious eye for sparkles.
2. China Pig
Steph Wilson’s seriously trendy vintage shop – the best place for a bespoke flower collar online
Fun, ethical, The Soup Library can be found at every cool festival over the summer.
It’s fashion and travel, need I say more?
5. Snap Fashion
You heard it here first, this app is going to be big.
Carelle’s 22 and got the voice of an angel. Watch out, country music.
2. Poppy Jamie
One of the youngest presenters on ITN ever, and a real rising star. Recently featured in Suitcase’s Generation XX column, so we called it first.
3. Serena Guen
Youngest owner of an international magazine in the world, can’t say fairer than that can you?
A wicked performance poet by all accounts, already headed up a stage at Glastonbury: headed for big things.
5. Lula Ososki
The 16-year old behind this: http://www.felixandflorrie.com/ and a pretty snazzy photographer too: http://cargocollective.com/lulaososki
