Woman Crush Wednesday – The October Roundup
Every Wednesday on The B-Line’s Instagram I share a post on who I am loving following on social media at the moment. And here I am doing the first ever roundup from the past month of who featured and why.
So let’s introduce this random bunch of awesome women. Check back every month for more inspiring women doing weird and wonderful things.

Baddie is bad aaassss. She has inspired a huge social media following with her unique sense of style. She wears what she wants, looks incredible doing it and never stops having fun travelling the world showcasing her iconic looks. Baddie even had a campaign with Missguided in the UK last year. Her fresh attitude towards dressing in your later years teaches us to never lose our sense of individuality and to remember: you can wear whatever you feel – whatever your age or size. It’s your body after all, so express yourself how you feel is right.

Jessie is class, sophistication, outspoken and talented, topped off with a down-to-earth sense of humour.
Everyone loves music and everyone has their own connection with it – Jessie’s songs come straight from the heart. If you ever need to get in touch with your emotions put on some Jessie Ware and you’re there! Her new album Glasshouse saw her work through becoming a mum and in her own words:
The past couple of years have been eye opening and intense. Wild highs and nerve-wracking lows. I started a record, decided to become a mother, and then kind of restarted the record. This became Glasshouse.
I’m now looking forward to seeing Jessie in March 2018 at the O2 in Newcastle (tickets arrived this week!) Having never seen her live before I’m looking forward to her chatty approach to connecting with the audience and unbelievable vocals!
- Not on Insta – don’t worry about it she doesn’t need to be.
This was a special #WomanCrushWednesday as it happened to also fall on #internationaldayofthegirl. As someone who has done so much for girls all over the globe there was no one better than Malala for this special edition. Earlier that week Malala started her course at Oxford University with a powerful message to girls everywhere:
5 years ago I was shot in an attempt to stop me from speaking out for girls’ education. Today I attend my first lectures at Oxford.
It’s so important to remember there are girls in every country of the world that do not have equal opportunities to other girls elsewhere or their male counterparts. Malala does her best to remind people of that and work towards change for the better.

Polly’s artwork explores the secret world of women and their inner demons. Sounds interesting right? Ohh it is interesting! Think drawings of women unzipping their skin to reveal their inner demons carrying out their private habits (check it out!). Polly’s work is now turning into a cult movement with a clothing line and fans even committing to getting tattoos of her artwork.
I haven’t gone that far myself but I do now own the tshirt. Probably going to invest in a printed illustration at some point too. And would love to visit one of her interactive exhibitions. But no tattoos. Yet.
