Great Women – Mary Portas
I want Mary Portas to be my friend. She would be that perfect mix of friend, mother and mentor. She would make me think, make me laugh and make me want to strive for better. I’m convinced my life would be better if she were in it. Unfortunately this will probably never be the case so I will have to be content to follow her on Twitter.
Retail Queen Mary is a both a creative force to be reckoned with and a remarkable business woman. I’ve been an avid fan since she arrived on our screens in 2007 with the Mary Queen of Shop series. I was immediately taken with her quick wit and no-nonsense approach. Not to mention her fierce wardrobe and wicked hair!
Am I scaring you with my fascination with Mary? I admit, I actually didn’t realise how much I love her until I started writing this.

P.S. I had planned to do this post for a few weeks and as I was preparing to put it live, I had a quick look on Mary Portas’ Twitter page and found out today is her birthday. Happy coincidence! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY!
