London, United Kingdom

Throwing it back to this week last year when we got the honour to shimmy in @cher and @tinaturner's dresses for @bbcnews 🙏🏾🎉😎 ⁣ ⁣ Channeling some of that combo magic to fuel this week's mindset ✨🧚🏾‍♀️⁣ ⁣

London, United Kingdom

It's a grin off 😎✌🏾 the winner gets one huge dose of chocolate high 🤪

BBC Broadcasting House

Maman look, I'm on the BBC radio 😎💃🏾⁣ This morning I had a super quick chat with @janegarvey23 and @the_art_tiffin regarding talking to our children about race. ⁣ ⁣ You can't say much in 10 minutes, and Hugo isn't even 3, but it's something I think about a lot. Who watched the video interview we did with @r29unbothered last summer (it had over 8M views last time I checked - of course I freaked out several times😅)? ⁣ ⁣ It is a sensitive topic, and that video had such a huge response but I'd still be too nervous to share it on my feed because as we said, sensitive topic. Some people find it hard to listen objectively to someone's experience without letting their feelings get in the way of their own compassion. ⁣ ⁣ People from various ethnicities still message me on a weekly basis about this video. It's not a topic for minorities only as some think, and it's not something we're simply "into", "obsessed with" or more comfortable with. ⁣ ⁣ We're just thrown into it every time someone, an organisation or society loses sight of our equal value, at best, or our birthrights.⁣ ⁣ And that's why it's everybody's mess, we're all part of the same society and we can't afford to have a whole bunch of us stopped in their tracks because some of us refuse to have an uncomfortable 45-mn conversation with themselves or others around them. ⁣ ⁣ If you can see the bright red of this dress, you can't miss the goreous brown skin of the woman wearing it 💃🏾✨. ⁣ ⁣ No one is colour blind, call out the intolerable behaviour you witness around you, be it your friends or family, and talk to your children about race, regardless of your own. ⁣ ⁣ You might not have a bias yourself, but the system in which you're raising your child does.⁣ ⁣ Thank you @bbcwomanshour for having me 🙏🏾 Now I can leave the UK feeling accomplished (I might come back for an MBE though 😜)

SoHo, Manhattan

AD ~ Here’s to all that glitters, AND dazzles ✨! pearled bee rings, gold quartz, the time on your hands, .... and your girl Freddie 😁🌟😎 - courtesy of the two besties and dreamers behind @oliviaburtonlondon 🌈 

we gather the love tribe, we squeeze hug the fam, we watch in awe as our friends' dreams unfold✨⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ We hop on the tall ones' shoulders, we rub our bum cheeks with each others, we show the little ones how it's done: how you chase purpose, alignement, love and joy ☀️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ (And we post it all on Sundays 🙃) @winnieawa @lyna_evelyna @scheenadonia @ebun.seyi @alexa.aprileen @tom_harrel

London, United Kingdom

That Friday evening feeling ✨⁣ Real life: London poured its self all over us just earlier, I'm currently drenched and waiting for my portion of chips the boys have just opened on the coffee table's books and chessboard (not that this house is ever tidy 😂) but Hugo's just said I'm not allowed to have any...⁣ ⁣ Do you reckon there is still hope for that glass of champagne though? 🤔 ⁣

Covent Garden

AD | Don't mind us, we're bringing back the classics 😎 the iconic big fro à la Freddie 👩🏾‍🦱, the iconic  polo shirt à la @gant, revisited with a deeper V-neck and a bigger collar for the (although self-proclaimed) cool kids like me 💃🏾🙅🏾‍♀️ ⁣ ⁣ We're rolling with this morning's "bold statements" memo 📝👀. ⁣ ⁣ What's yours? ⁣😏 Grab a chair. Sit down, let's chat 💁🏾

Ritzy Cinema and Cafe

So I've got two things to say and it's about Wawa 🦄 and our clipiiiiiiiiiins (London fam, don't you miss out 😏) ⁣ ⁣ First, can we all take a moment to recognise how magical is my unicorn of a sister @winnieawa?! Her brainchild @antidotestreet is a marketplace for the best curation of haircare products for curly hair. ⁣ ⁣ Not just a marketplace though , she's pouring tech, AI, and tons of education with it. Natural hair care can be so cryptic, and there are more and more brands now! ⁣ ⁣ If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't know what to care for my hair with, or which salon to trust for a trim. Now her visiiiiiiion 🦄🎊🥰 you look at Wawa and eveything she creates looks like her, in an object or art form. And this Hair Lab is just that! So until Saturday, come shop your favs hair brands, book a trim, get your hair braided or even thoroughly analysed by a tricologist 💥⁣ ⁣ Which brings me to the second thing!! Many of you who bought our clip-ins before have emailed me to get more (since we paused till our relaunch) , and eveytime I could I would ship it away 🥰 ⁣ ⁣ Well, now you can shop our former kinky curly and blown out at the Hair Lab for £35, with a 2 for 1 promo ⁣ (so 1 bundle = 2 bundles = £35 ✨)⁣ ⁣ You can also get free ones if you're one of the first shoppers of the Lab or the lucky winner of their daily treasure hunt, for more deets check on @antidotestreet ✨⁣ ⁣ The Hair lab is running until this Saturday:⁣ ⁣ Today - Tomorrow 📍BRIXTON⁣ ⁣ Friday - Saturday 📍SPITAFIELDS ⁣ ⁣ So who's going?! 💃🏾😎💃🏾⁣

So here's a photo collage of that last pit stop in NYC, because I haven't taken decent photos but wanted to say hey 🙃 ⁣ I'm still here, just on an unofficial x on/off social media retreat 😜⁣ ⁣ Last trip though, exciting meetings with our creative agencies to get cooking the best platform for @radswan, meetings with some potential team members 👯(pinch meee - it's not just me and me in my kitchen anymore 💃🏾) ⁣ ⁣ But the best part was, plain and simply, getting my mind blown a thousand times over during the superwomen at @femalefoundersfund host every year. ⁣ ⁣ 100+ founders and CEOs + the inspiring wisdom of women like @klaker founder @stitchfix, super down to earth and winging it like you and I, who exited publicly after only 6 years, the only female founder to lead an IPO in 2017! Then the one and only @dvf who told us "only losers don't feel like losers" and we all could have cried. I discovered the magical and soothing @paulastonewilliams, "lost is a place too", and amazing keynotes from @target and @Pinterest echoing what I have at heart to do with @radswan, which is starting conversations rather than campaigns 🙏🏾⁣ ⁣ I'm a huge enthusiast atm, a dreamers' bubble where the tales of others all seem to tell you "you are indeed limitless, now goooo 😎🦸🏾", I'm trying to hold back a bit to not bore those of you who came for the fashion 😂 (or for the hair update 👀) ⁣ ⁣ Which reminds me I need to bring back the outfits sharpish 🎉 ⁣ ⁣ But allow me, cause I do get confused myself (the sempiternal "what am I even for" cancer struggle on cancer season) what content do you like to follow me for? The soul ramblings, the dream chasing (and now empire building 😜), the manifesting and spiritual junkiness (btw, we're Reiki Level 1 now 😊), the suit game, the bold prints, the grin, the hair plug 🔌 or my interestingly flat chest and wonderfully wide nostrils (who in all fairness should suffice to bring anyone to the yard..🌵) ? ⁣ ⁣ You tell me! Anyone else in a (digital or not) existential fog atm? 🤔

London, United Kingdom

My life at the moment is back to back 1-hour long meetings with NYC about @RadSwan (and I'm back there tomorrow 🎉✨) and my last call this eve is at 4:30pm there so 11:30pm here 😅 ⁣ (waaaaay past your homeslice's bedtime)⁣ ⁣ So here we are wandering the streets of South London, talking our wildest dreams at loud and munching on chips, just to keep me awake and chirpy for that 11:30pm 💥😎✌🏾 ⁣ ⁣ Absolutely love these Summer nights! Eternally grateful for this opportunity I have to build such a wonderful and conscious beauty brand 🙏🏾✨⁣ ⁣

Heathrow Airport

is back home. Home is in these arms ❤️⁣ ⁣ Hong Kong was just a short stint but so so exciting!⁣ ⁣ I've shared some snippets of a couple of @radswan samples on Stories last night and many of you went NUTS in my DM inbox 🤣💥 ⁣ ⁣ I absolutely cannot wait to bring this to you and see your faces 🤩 (and your haiiiiiir, you'll be switching it up hassle free like we switch dresses and shoes ✌🏾 because why not?!!!💁🏾‍♀️) ⁣ ⁣ Seeing these samples this week and imagining what the final ones will look like in 10 days feels unreal.⁣ ⁣ Unreal. ⁣ ⁣ Throw a ridic jetlag on it and you can either find me so excited you want to lock me in a cupboard, or going delirious or having a meltdown 😭💃🏾⁣ ⁣ It's a mind blowing journey, it genuinely feels like it's part of my purpose - purely intention-led ✨🙏🏾 and Gooood it's taking us places! ⁣ ⁣ But it also gets tough (timezone hopping and mercury retrogrades don't help 😩) and lonely but getting your direct feedback like that isn't just priceless, it's enlightening - literally. ⁣ ⁣ Every supportive or excited messages (that includes those of you urging me to release on time for their weddings yesterday 😅) feels like a beacon of light on the road! Thank you. So much! ❤️⁣ ⁣ We're almost there, launching this autumn/fall, we're building up the team as we speak, incorporating in the US, scouting offices.⁣ ⁣ And as a family we're also looking into Brooklyn houses, kindergarten (pre 3K? Wherever school 3yo go to in NYC, pardon my French 😭), relocating basically. ⁣ ⁣ Pheww. Unreal, did I say? ⁣ ⁣ So home, I have so many of these selfies I cling onto when I'm away. How many sleeps and meetings till these arms again? Keep going my girl 💕 home is right around the corner!

Hong Kong

Some days we all get the memo right (in this occasion, 'blue with a dash of prints', although @tom_harrel skipped the print part 🙄) and we scrub up well, so we (as in I) ask a stranger to take a pic for us (as in me), but usually looks less bothered than this so this one's considered a win 😂 I'm in HK and missing these two right now 🥰🙏🏾💕

Heathrow Airport

This is 32 and 6 days 🎉✌🏾✨ don't be fooled by the look of exhaustion, we're only just getting started, but we're also doing it between London and NYC atm, oh and HK as of today 😅⁣ ⁣ I'm so grateful for this 33rd year, and all the growth and sweeping I've been forced through these last few months. Pheeeew, I look at where I am, where we are now and I could cry. So thankful ❤️ for the lessons, the opportunities, the space, and all the love running through my life..⁣ ⁣ I've gone a bit MIA on here, a needed break to tune out the noise but also because @radswan is MASSIVELY ramping up 😲🤩✨! ⁣ I'm not good at half-assing things, nor am I good at full-assing many things at the same time...⁣ ⁣ So right now I'm pouring all my soul into building my growing baby, this conscious beauty brand of dreams (God I sooo want to make you all proud! 🙏🏾), and I don't have much left to pour into my usual IG diatribes (come on, you know you miss them! 💁🏾).⁣ ⁣ But I need to learn to not be so intense with everything, like coming on here just to stay hey and live it there right? 🤷🏾 Not everyday chatty chatty, but you know your homegirl by now 🤦🏾‍♀️💬⁣ ⁣ Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes, and for bearing with me through this huge transition! From the random messages of support, to the legit love letters you guys post through my DMs - You guys give me WINGS 🦋🙏🏾

If you're looking for me, I'm at the other end of the trail of under-boob sweat I've been leaving through the streets of Greenwich Village ✌🏾😎💦

@Radswan sampling archives ✨ ⁣ Yay 👍🏾 or Nah 👎🏾⁣ Where would we find you with this mane?! 😎💥⁣

London, United Kingdom

I tied my so high and mighty that these two couldn't take the shade they had to walk in. ⁣ That's when HH and his despotic wit came through and summoned @tom_harrel to a stack up 😎 ⁣ No one puts baby in the shadow 😒🙅🏾‍♀️ ⁣

London, United Kingdom

(A long one bc it's our season, 🙌🏾) 😜⁣ ⁣ I often hate how much I talk, and how positive I am 😂. ⁣ I used to feel it makes people think I'm too naive, and fortunately unbruised.⁣ 🙅🏾‍♀️ ⁣ We have no idea where the universe is, and we're still globally fighting as to who/what started "us" in the first place and why,  but we're dead keen on 'logic'. 🧐⁣ ⁣ It makes sense that you've bragged so much about something you've jinxed it, it doesn't make sense that you could manifest your dreams into reality ✨ 🧚🏾‍♀️⁣ ⁣ It makes sense how our body is constantly working to keep us alive and can tell us through physical and mental symptoms when we're not doing well, but it doesn't make sense that people who can't hide, or switch off their feelings get ahead of those who roll with the punches, never rest or complain. 😕⁣ ⁣ I've double tapped on my fair share of motivational quotes and have looked up to enough tough people constantly drilling it in about the 'race'. Don't sleep, go harder, no crying, no one cares, don't trust anyone, it's all about discipline 😎⁣ ⁣ But that tough life is a hard sale for my severely ADHD brain, it puts it off 😩⁣ ⁣ I go through journals like Uber car rides, I'm Cancer, I've got all the feels and all the tears. ADHD makes sure I never run out of said feels, or subjects for long instrospections that lead to more feels, oh and talking. ⁣ ⁣ Discipline for the sake of it? Can't do it 😑 Anyone else with me?😅🙋🏽‍♀️⁣ ⁣ Yet I always end up getting what I want, or need, and I'm (almost) always positive. Beyond circumstances and discipline, what rules it all is the FEELS, especially the tough ones. The space and listening ear you give them, not here and there but consistently. That's the real roadmap to success 😎💦⁣ ⁣ If some make it look intimidating and if tough love isn't your thing, stick with me! I'm just like you, and smashing it ✊🏾⁣ ⁣ I basically used to feel small because of my strongest weapon, and @RadSwan is currently showing me what leading with intention can do ✨ and it's 😳🙏🏾 - so let's all rally on this start of Cancer season and show them how it's done! 🙌🏾😂⁣

Graduate Fashion Week

June for me used to be, moons ago, such a torturous month! Exams felt like they were holding the cards to my whole future, long revision sessions whilst the summer is starting outside your window (and my birthday at the start of July! ✨) so if you’re head down this period right now, I’m with you 😅✊🏾! ⁣ And I’m also soo excited for you, so many possibilities now that you’re almost done with the traditional curriculum, like seeking your truth harder and exploring it as you build a new tribe for yourself! 🥳⁣ ⁣ And if fashion has been on your mind, I can vouch for @cambridgevisualperformingarts’s programs 🤓⁣ ⁣ We met their teacher and some of their students earlier this month, the pride and joy on their faces as they watched theirs and other students' work walking down the runway at the was so lovely to witness! You could feel the year-long teamwork and support 🙌🏾⁣ ⁣ And on top of having small-sized classes, a global network and a more intense teaching than its counterparts, @cambridgevisualperformingarts has also partnered with @bazaaruk to offer a fully funded scholarship (covering both fees and accommodation) for the BA Fashion (HONS) degree course which also includes a 4-week internship 💥 ⁣⁣ ⁣ That’s a potential bright light at the end of this month’s tunnel! Entries close end of this month so go go go if this 👆🏾should be you soon! 😎

London, United Kingdom

Happy father's Day to the almighty of our house, the superhero and number (and former only number in 's mind but thank God I'm part-ish of the gang now 😝) 🙌🏾✨⁣ ⁣ Beyond the ridiculous tightness of your bond, the insane fandom going both ways, and the undeniable fact that you two plotted this reunion way before both your lives started, can I just say that I absolutely love how fatherhood looks on you?! 😏😏 ⁣ And the even more wonderful, loving, funny, selfless and caring person it brings out of you?! ⁣ ⁣ So grateful for you, grateful for you two, for us three, and for the opportunity to celebrate you today 🙏🏾💕 ⁣ ⁣ We love you oh so so much , I certainly do, to the next galaxy and back ♥️✨⁣ ⁣

London, United Kingdom

Still here 🙋🏾 though not fully. I came back from NYC end of last week, a surreal trip that can't be put into words yet, and I cannot believe we'll be living there soon 😲 but I came back and went straight off on another little trip, this time to the hospital, for a couple of kidney stones I'm still yet to pass out a week later 👀 the pain though?! Can we talk about it?! And they said they were 'high density', I'm scared 🙈 ⁣ ⁣ So I've been caving in with the boys 🤗, sleeping the pain off, drinking and peeing it off, crafting @RadSwan 💕, sleeping some more. ⁣ ⁣ I've never been the ride till you drop kind of person, I'm not perfect at it at all, but I've been learning to listen to my body and I've really been enjoying it. ⁣ So this week felt very humbling, having to stay still but also spending so much time with @tom_harrel - real quality time, not just time time. You know?⁣ ⁣ But just when the humility runs out and I'm left feeling frustrated with the pain and those stones still not passing, I'm hit with the heartbreaking Sudan news.⁣ ⁣ Sending so much love to everyone out there or with relatives there. Beyond the help and support we can bring through swipes on our smartphones, the next thing I feel urged to do is to go back to the humble feeling of last week. ⁣ Caved in with the inner circle, grateful for the pain that forces you to stay indoors and cuddle. The real influence starts there, the love, attention, and space for freedom you get to give out around you. ⁣ ⁣ Not just loving people, but committing to learn to love your people better, so they can go out and want to love other people better too ✨⁣ ⁣ But I also need these kidney stones to go out too, so I'm going to go kick back a few more pints of water and go to bed 🙅🏾 - have a wonderful one you wonderful people! Drink your water, spare a prayer for Sudan and everywhere else, text a loved one a really cheesy love note and maybe have a face mask whilst you're at it xx

⁣ AD | As most of you will know I’m all about the bold moves this year, I’m putting myself right in the centre of the arena with RadSwan and I couldn’t be more excited about it. You guys are going to love it! 🥳⁣ ⁣ @JaguarUK’s all about the bold moves too this year, and their new XE model oozes boldness and presence, perfect for the space we intend to take this year! 😎✊🏾⁣ ⁣ We’re taking space, letting go of old fears to truly step into our magic and release it to the world. ✨⁣ ⁣ For me it’s about bringing out the mother, the business woman, content creator and part-time sass monger 😜, a brief the XE seemed to be down with as soon as I stepped into it.⁣ 🙅🏾‍♀️ ⁣ I fell in love with the XE almost immediately and didn’t want to give it back after the shoot, the interior and all the tech made my own car feel like it belonged in a museum!😅⁣ ⁣ So, bold moves anyone? Ride on, we’re heading there 👌🏾⁣ ⁣ Video: @fredhuttonmills
