As I mentioned when I started doing the Fabulous Friday Female, this project is a group effort and I wanted to acknowledge and celebrate not just the women who inspire me, but also those who inspire YOU.
So a huge thanks goes out to Salli Glover who stepped forward and asked me to feature her friend Hannah Foxley as one of our Fabulous Friday Females.
Here’s what Salli had to say about Hannah:
Why is she a Fabulous Friday Female to YOU?
I met Hannah Foxley 3 months ago as she came to an event of mine & then joined the Scarlett Programme.
Hannah had breast cancer last year, not just once but twice, resulting in a year long rollercoaster ride of chemo, radiotherapy and eventually a full mastectomy.
All this came immediately following the death of her Father & Hannah had to work a full time job throughout as she had no financial protection.
In the space of 3 short months Hannah has quit that job which she hated and bravely started her own business as The Women’s Wealth Expert…Her mission being to ensure that no woman has to suffer as she did because they’re not protected, she is also passionate about helping women going through a divorce… any woman dealing with an unexpected life event.
She has created a facebook group called Beauty Beyond Scars for other women going through breast cancer and she very bravely shares powerful images of herself post mastectomy and inspires her members with inspirational words.
Finally, she has become an Ambassador for Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity & is aiming to get hundreds of women committed to raising £1000 each for the charity as well as bringing the charity media attention through her Beauty Beyond Scars images…
Hannah said of herself recently ‘I may have lost a boob but I’ve grown some balls!’ And she really has (whilst remaining gorgeously feminine!) I have never seen someone so bravely and courageously take themselves on to make a difference to others & the world.

So please join me today in acknowledging and celebrating the Hannah for the inspiration she is sharing with others through bravely teling her own incredible story!
As you know, I would love to acknowledge, honour and celebrate the women who have inspired you as well. So if there is someone that you believe should feature as a Fabulous Friday Female, then send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with 3 simple details:
- Who is your Fabulous Friday Female? (Her name and location in the world)
- Why is she a Fabulous Friday Female to YOU? (How do you know her? What does she do? In what way is she inspiring?)
- A photo or link to a picture of her online (if there is a reason that you would prefer not to include a photo, just let me know)
So help me to share with all of our lovely ladies the real women who inspire YOU.
…and remember, as always, to Stay Fabulous too!
