#Blogmas Day 22: Girl Crushes of 2015

1. Nikki and Brie Bella

The Bella Twins are my number one fitspo. These women are strong and beautiful. They take pride in their bodies and are fantastic role models. They inspire me to keep pushing to reach my goals because being a female in the sports industry is tough (they wrestle and I want to be a sports journalist). I do love Nikki slightly more (sorry Brie) just because of her relationship with John Cena and her killer dress sense. Mostly I love that how they’re twins but completely different but still amazing!

2. Misty Copeland

Ballet was my first real love and this woman has helped me rediscover that. After reading about her in Teen Vogue one time, I bought her autobiography and cried at several points when reading it. This woman is an inspiration; even if you’re not a ballerina, you;ll be able to relate to at least one struggle in her life. She does not have the usual physique of a ballerina but that’s what makes her special. Unfortunately, the colour of her skin matters when it shouldn’t and this year she became the first African American to be a principal at the American Ballet Theatre, which is a huge achievement, not only for ballet but for the human race in general.

3. Taylor Swift

This woman can do no wrong in my eyes. I’ve loved her from the very beginning; I kind of miss her country roots but nevertheless, she has grown into a bona fide pop princess. My favourite thing about her is her kindness; she will always stop to sign autographs, she constantly talks to fans online and never has a bad thing to say about anyone. Yes, she writes songs about those who’ve treated her badly but that’s one of her gifts.

4. Selena Gomez

Selena has had a revival this year; she’s back with a brand new album and look and she looks fantastic. She’s become more confident in herself now and it shows in her music and style. She’s grown up in the public eye and has managed to stay clear of trouble (apart from the Biebs) and is full of poise and grace. I love her friendship with Taylor Swift too!

5. Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders

Making the Team is my favourite TV show of this year. These women are a huge inspiration to me right now because I so want to become a DCC! Every single one of them is gorgeous, intelligent, hard-working and dedicated. They train 5 nights a week and work full-time or study in order to pay their ways. They are all talented performers and are so tight as a group but have their own individual style too.
