A Girl In Progress is a lifestyle blog for women who are working on themselves, for themselves. We believe it’s possible to strive to become the best version of yourself, while simultaneously accepting yourself exactly as you are.

We’re for the uni student who’s still trying to figure what she wants to do after she graduates. We’re for the girl who works out 4 times per week, but still eats ice-cream daily. We’re for the girl who’s working a full-time job to pay the bills while starting her own business on the side. We’re for the girl who would sometimes rather stay in and binge-watch Netflix than go to that networking event. We’re for you, the girl in progress.


Emma Norris is a Sydney-based freelance writer, fitness junkie and pizza addict. Her words have appeared in publications like Sporteluxe, Cosmopolitan, The Cusp, Wanderluxe, Take 5 and TV Week. Having worked in the media industry, Emma noticed a trend of influencers and bloggers who present a polished, perfect image of themselves. As someone who worships at the altar of carbs, almost always has a bird nest-sized knot in her hair and falls over/drops food/says something awkward at least once a day, she couldn’t relate. So, she decided to start her own blog — one that celebrates being raw, real and perfectly imperfect.

She hopes that this blog will inspire, entertain and empower girls in progress everywhere — no matter where they may be on their journey.
