Another little project I’m involved in! @needtoknow_club you know when ya’ll ask me for Rome and Dubai tips? There you go. This travel site is by professional writers who only recommend the places that they would tell their best friends but with no ads or payed content.
.
Only today you can get a free membership with “launch-day” code (otherwise £5) so don’t miss out.
www.needtoknow.club

Also video edited and produced by me 😄

The founders are ex-colleagues of mine from Time Out @d4v3c00k and Emma Perry and I help with marketing strategy and soon some writing too! ( I promised..). I’d love to hear your thoughts ✨#NeedToKnow

Caught in the “trynna juggle 30.000 things at once” 😅 Forever pursuing the “I got it under control” lifestyle 😂 I’ll let you know if I get there. In the meanwhile I take breaks/hide in my favourite local spots like @soul_proprietors and always representing the Dubai fam @amongstfew with their best bits 🖤

A year ago this week I was in Cuba, my first solo trip and it was pure MAGIC. I’ve never connected with a culture as much and as cliche as it sounds, it was one damn life changing experience. .
Some of you might have heard (buried underneath irrelevant wedding news) that Cuba suffered from the worst airplane crash in their history, which made my memories even stronger 💔
.
This sunset is in Trinidad where the most bizarre things happened but probably the best of the whole trip. Listening to Cuban rhythms as I write this and it gets me every time as I remember the clunky and euphoric streets, the passionate people I met, the insane sunsets, the endless music I danced and listened to, the sticky sweet smell of the sea, the love I felt, the horse rides through sugar cane fields, the chats, the all nighters and I could go on for ever. I’ll share more as I can’t stop
Thinking about it.
Cuba te quiero y te extraño todos los días ❤️ 🇨🇺 .

Here’s a 🦁 lifting chairs while talking about women’s incredible strengths still not glorified as much they should be. Weather we lift heavy wait (and trust me we can), work 3 jobs, start our own businesses, give birth, raise the next generation or just live our lives day by day we are STRONG so stop questioning it 💪 📸 @franxisaugusto

Is this how you rock handbags these days? Cause I never used one 🤷🏼‍♀️ 😂 (🦁) Another great snap from @franxisaugusto 📸 ————-
At #WhoWeAreProject I was asked what does “femininity” mean to me. I often struggle with the concept of it and how people expect me to be feminine versus my interpretation of it. On the rare occasions I wear a dress /makeup, the amount of “who have you dressed up for today” comments I get are ENDLESS (and mostly male). All missing the point that the art of “dressing up or down” is only for our selves.
There is no template or rule to femininity, and it probably shouldn’t even be a thing. It’s all about being true to our selves and representing it proudly with no definitions or expectations. And yes in my case it will be 80% comfy vibes and kicks and the 20% a surprise 💁🏼‍♀️

When a fellow creative with mad skills like @franxisaugusto has the brilliant idea to interview and photoshoot women from all different backgrounds on International Women’s day, you know there is hope in this kinda disastrous world.
.
#WhoWeAreProject We spoke all things female related, what it means to be a woman, to be feminine, about all our joys and burdens, obstacles and infinite strength. It was natural and real and we just need more of this in our world. More photos to come because I love them so much! Thanks Francis for being you and for putting this out there 🙏 📸 @franxisaugusto

One day I walked into my local record shop, next thing I was helping on things web / social related or as Nick ( in pic & founder) likes to call me “Interweb Mogul” ( or “Chewby” 🤷🏼‍♀️😂) Anyway yesterday he pulled off his first Record Store Day and it was a blast and I’m so happy to be part of and support local, independent places and businesses that bring communities together and in this case promote my favourite thing in the world: Music. If you’re in Brixton, or not, get yourself to Elm Park Road and check out @soul_proprietors to get the best/ rarest vinyls you can find in London. ❤️ And thank you @moniquekawecki for taking this pic! ✨ .

Two years ago today I was in India (Mumbai, Deli and Goa) visiting a dear friend Vijay and meeting other beautiful people like @sammytwosticks @neysamendes and @anishsood. I had one of the most incredible times, and as usual I take loads of pictures and forget to share them.. this is just a little snippet, one day eventually I’ll show all 😂 I really hope to be back soon 💜

It started with some content needed, and the rest was history! @omaralbusaidy to meeting randomly at the airport, filming and documenting your inspiring talks at the @londonbookfair with @mbrf_news, consuming insane amount of brownies, and bringing ‘Kaleeji’ vibes to edgy London 😂 Shukran my dear for your positive energy and catch you very soon 🙏
And for anyone out there check out his book “Just read it” it does what it says on the tin 😊
Also shout out to @otofficial getting the connections through, get yourself to London too.
