Everyone who knows me knows I love some #GirlPower. And there are certain people in the media, on my workout playlist or on my television screen that I cannot get enough of right now.
These women are my #WCW everyday.
Gigi Hadid: Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the past few months, you know Gigi Hadid is everywhere right now. The model walked in every show at fashion week, took over young hollywood (and made the JoBros relevant again) with her boyfriend Joe Jonas and still made time to inspire women everywhere about body image. Gigi took to social media to stand up for herself and women everywhere because our bodies are #AllDifferentAllPerfect.
Demi Lovato: One word: Confident. Demi’s new single is everything, and her new album is just as catchy and empowering. Her unapologetic attitude with the press is also refreshing and something to incorporate into everyday life.
Shonda Rhimes: Thank God It’s Thursday. Shondaland shows– Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder– are back and better than ever. Shonda brings people across the country together (with wine and popcorn) and uses her shows to make her own political statements (have you seen those steamy same sex sex scenes?!). Her new book about saying “Yes” to everything for a year comes out in November, and I know it will NOT disappoint. Shonda also found the time to lose 100 lbs over the past year and looks more comfortable and beautiful than ever.
Mindy Kaling: After her show was cancelled for approximately 5 minutes, Mindy made a deal with Hulu to keep the sitcom alive. The Mindy Project is edgier on the streaming service, and has a bigger episode order. Minds (I don’t think she would mind if I called her that) released her second book in September and it was even funnier than the last.
Shania Twain: I saw my longtime girl crush in concert twice this summer and she did not disappoint. Shania’s voice is stronger than ever, her hits are still super catchy and she is bringing cheetah print back like it’s the 90s. Sidenote: Listen to “Today Is Your Day” before all big life events and you will be ready to go.
Selena Gomez: Selena’s new album is the ultimate dance-around-your-room-and-sing-into-your-hairbrush album– and this is not a title I would give to just any record. Plus songs like Revival and Rise make me feel like I could take over the world. S Gomez is also shutting down haters and revealed she secretly battled Lupus. #GoGirrrrl
Jana Kramer: Another badass lady who just released new music, Jana’s new album is the perfect combination of songs that make me want to cry and songs that help me power through on the elliptical. She is also pregnant with her first child and posts adorable selfies with her new husband. Girl can do it all.
The Ladies of Lady Lovin: Lo Bosworth, Jilly Hendrix and Greta Titelman are making my Mondays a little less sucky with their new podcast. We all remember (and love) Lo from Laguna Beach and The Hills, so it makes sense that her BFFs would be just as sassy and fabulous. The ladies cover a variety of topics like sex, relationship advice and different trends. Plus they leave you feeling like a #badass.
Kelly Ripa: Nothing turns a morning around like watching LIVE! with Kelly and Michael with a large cup of coffee. Kelly also just celebrated her 45th birthday and still looks OP. Plus, she recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Talk about life goals.
