Who is Baddie Winkle and what she can teach you

Baddie Winkle

This is Baddie Winkle. She is the most colourful, fun, loving, happiest woman on this planet. You may or may not know her. She may or may not shock you. But let me tell you...  we really all need to take a leaf out of Baddie Winkles book on living life. Before I get into how Baddie can teach us a thing or two, let me tell you a little about her.

Her quotes are the sassiest and we love them!

“Sippin on some tea while waiting for your man,” she writes in one, where she wears 12-inch platform heels.

Now, before you start judging Baddie on her clothes, attitude or comments. Let us explain to you how Baddie became an internet sensation.

Baddie lives at home with her Granddaughter and Great Granddaughter. Baddie tragically lost her Husband in a car accident and then her Son to Cancer.

“I fought for years trying to get over the deaths of my son and my husband,” Baddie admits. “I led a very sad life but I had to go on and be strong for my daughter, my 5 grandchildren and my 3 great-grandchildren.”

 “I cried all the time because I couldn’t come to terms with it. So I made myself over into Baddie Winkle. This new chapter in my life, I’m looking forward to it. It’s got more interesting as a matter of fact. But, right down deep, I don’t think I’ve changed all that much.” Baddie explains

One sunny day in April 2014, her granddaughter came home to find her in bright and colourful clothes and decided that she looked so cute that she just had to take a picture. That picture then became her first Instagram post and Baddie Winkle was born.

Since then Baddie Winkle has absolutely exploded. Hanging with the likes of Miley Cyrus, Khloe Kardashian and many more. Baddie regularly attends events like the MTV Music Awards, goes back stage to concerts and walks the red carpet like no other!

So, what can we learn from Baddie Winkle? Easy question!

  • Life is short, just do what makes you happy.
  • It's never too late to turn your life around.
  • Be who you want and forget what "society" says you have to be.
  • The day you decide to be yourself, is the day the world will love you more.

  • Love your body.
  • Have a laugh.
  • Life can be a jerk, but that doesn't mean you give up or give in.
