I wrote a piece for @funmifetto’s first ever issue of @spacenk’s Inside Space magazine a few years ago. And now I have the privilege of being Editor for the forthcoming Autumn/Winter 2019 issue. Thank you for passing over the beauty baton Funmi - I hope I come close to producing something as special as your past issues - and to The Don @esimpson_scott for trusting me with this incredible project. Let’s go! 💫🌟✨

🌟POPPY’S IN A MUSIC VIDEO!🌟 Does this make me an official Momager 🤣?! My incredible, talented, legendary musician uncle Bryn Haworth has written a beautiful environmental activism single called Enough is Enough, in response to global deforestation. Inspired by a personal experience and empowered by the UK’s growing passion for sustainability, Enough is Enough is a gentle protest anthem dedicated to protecting our woodlands for future generations and wildlife. When the amazing film-maker @walkn02 asked Bryn if he knew a little girl who could be in the video project, well... see for yourselves!! Pops and Bryn are separated by almost 70 years but have the most wonderful bond and devotion to each other. Pops: this one’s for your cyber time-capsule baby! Link to YT video in my bio and do share the 🌳 love using #mytreematters. All info about Bryn and the campaign on www.mytreematters.com 💚🌳💚🌳💚🌳 #sustainability #deforestation #saveourtrees #activism #PdPxYouTube

How completely beautiful are these images from @carandache? Breathe in the tin-y, bitter lead, that freshly-carved cedar woodchip, the greasy, oily, waxy colour pigments ready to be squeezed and moulded... and the acrylic paint-dipped tips all glossy and gleaming like some kind of artist’s lollipop that you suck and gnaw to release inspiration during your next boring-meeting doodle. Makes me want to start drawing again ✏️🧡✏️💛#pencils #pens #stationery #carandache #colour #pigments #art #londoncraftweek

When you surrender your home to the purple reign. This wisteria snakes across 11 entire houses, gently asphyxiating windows and walls like some kind of sadistically savage scented lover, each submissive household adoringly committed to its goddess-levels of maintenance. Welcome to BDSM: Garden Edition! Apparently this nucleus house removed a window frame to transfer furniture inside as to not disturb the sacred trunk. These are my kinda people. 💜 #wisteria #wisteriahysteria #glycine #gardens #wisteriawatch

IT HAPPENED. “Mummy this is the best day of my life ever” 💔🦉

New Covent Garden Flower Market, 5am, in May. All the stalks, all the tin buckets, all the sweetsoft petals swept up from yesterday’s market. The whole of @bananarepublic’s Icon Collection is so good I’ve written about all of them (plus other excellent new affordable niche fragrances) over on @glamouruk (link in bio!) 💚 #scent #perfume #niche #affordableperfume #adpsmellogram #fragrance

What do we think of coloured mascaras? These @shiseido ControlledChaos MascaraInk wands are some kind of beautiful. Violet Vibe, Emerald Energy and Sapphire Spark (plus a classic jet black) - not garish, just subtle pops of curious intense colour (and excellent smudgeproofability™️). @shiseido makeup artist @patrickta recommends painting the top lashes in black and the bottom lashes in a colour. Which one are you drawn to the most? 💜💚💙 #mascara #shiseido #controlledchaos #emeraldforme

For 24 hours we disappeared into extraordinary, decadent fantasy. Thank you @claridgeshotel for surrounding us in a magical glow, for suite 430’s beautiful details and ethereal light, for @chefmnail’s lobster love affair and an #accidentalwesanderson departure shot. Perfection.✨💫⚡️

Could a perfume help ease symptoms of anxiety?

Some early Muthoos Day lovin’ from my little lady (head to toe in Chanel apparently 🤣) “You are the most preciousist ever” Ditto kiddo 😭💘

She gave birth to you: you can do better than flowers. Hit the link in my bio for my @glamouruk Mother’s Day gift edit including the world’s most unlikely-but-weirdly-delicious perfume, a £2.99 tin of bespoke joy and the kindest candle in town (clue: @scampanddude ⚡️💛)

The S Word. It’s the conversation that the @glamouruk reader is deeply passionate about right now, and it’s affecting every single one of their purchase decisions. So how does sustainability work within fragrance?

⚡️🍾*Puts champs on ice*🍾⚡️ So so beyond happy to win the Jasmine Award for best Creative Visual for a shoot I did for @glamouruk. Belle was 5 months old, I couldn’t even write my name I was so sleep-deprived but I had a mad idea and @deborah_joseph looked at my crazy hormonal manic eyes and said ‘yeah go on then’. Thank you so much @fragrancefoundationuk, the whole judging panel and Sarah Irvine for these kind and flattering words, and to @dlye @abigailvolks for helping it all come to life! Feeling VERY Leo di Caprio right now - I’ve been nominated 8 times and this is my first Jasmine win. Hooray! 🎉 🎉 #jasmineawards2019 #fragrancefoundation #perfume #scent #fragrance #ibloodywonitmum!

It’s National Fragrance Week! And it’s not just about spraying your fave perfumes. It’s a moment to acknowledge that the UK fragrance industry employs over 125,000 people and generates £2.4billion in tax revenue. Wowzer! And a moment to wear the for-special-occasions bottles, to smell the things you love, those smells that send access passcodes to areas of your brain that hold all the good stuff - like a big old happiness hormone vault but instead of a fingerprint scanner it’s a very specific recipe of aromas that opens up the heavy door. And inside: the stuff that defines you, the smell of home - whether that’s your grandparents’ sunbaked garden or dad’s sawdusty shirts or mum’s wafty cloud of dinner party glamour. Or your kids’ hair. I don’t know who I am until I stick my nose deep into their mad, silky, feral, thick, bonkers manes. Then I’m home. What’s your happy scent?!👇🏼 📍 📍 📍 #nationalfragranceweek #smellfie #scentmemories @theperfumesociety @fragrancefoundation #perfume #adpsmellogram #fragrance #scent

The one where I call out the new, misappropriated and totally screwed-up concept of #BodyPositivity: “somewhere along the timeline, you were kidnapped by marketing teams, twisted into a hysterical gimmick and focused predominantly on ‘plus size’ women.” And btw @oasisfashion you are all fart no shit.

⚡️G L A M O U R S S 1 9 ⚡️ What a ride! So many highlights to mention... and obvs because I’m a self-promoting prick I’ve snapped loads of my own work 🤣 But this issue as a whole feels like the vocal and visual platform for how a lot of young women feel right now, and that is all down to the insightful, ballsy, exacting, challenging, ego-free and gut-steering way in which @deborah_joseph @camilla.kay @lisajourno and @tashpearlman @katieteehan have pushed every single one of these features and shoots, down to the tiniest caption, to be the best it possibly can. In this issue I’ve called bullshit on the giant marketing con of “Body Positivity” (*preps oneself for trolling*), @samgmcmeekin says what everyone secretly feels about Insta, @camilla.kay redefines beach beauty with the antithesis of the cliche’d skinny/blonde/tanned/vacuous shoot, king-of-interviews @joshsmithhosts talks to our coverstars @maisie_williams @sophiet like real women, not brands, which is why he’s so damn good at this; one of the most powerful reads is @mcchappet’s report on modern Activism... and probs my favourite part of the whole mag is revealed on the Ed’s letter #wheresposh 😂 It’s also so fitting this issue lands the week of #internationalwomensday: run by women (and men who love women @dlye 💘) to bring balance to years of media making women feel shit about themselves. This literally does the opposite and I’m so happy @glamouruk has adopted me into the fam. Enjoy! ⚡️

You know the whole ‘sex in a bottle’ thing that @tomfordbeauty does so damn well? This is ‘outdoor sex in a bottle’ where misty, tangled botanical greens pin you against a glasshouse wall and psychedelic clouds of lavender trip your mind into carnal submission. Take us now! 🌟 🌟 This, plus a gang of new spring scents, fresh up on the @glamouruk website 🧪 🌟 🌟 #perfume #fragrance #scent #spring #splash #glamour #adpsmellogram #SS19 #beaudejour #tomford #tomfordfragrance

Can’t get rid of me that easily @deborah_joseph @camilla.kay. So so happy to be staying with the @glamouruk family as part of my freelancing adventures. 🌟 🌟 🌟 Gotta admit I will seriously miss the office LOLs from the smart, talented, kind, hilarious and tolerant-of-my-incessant-puns desk crew that I sat with for 10 weeks, who unknowingly excavated, exfoliated and double-cleansed a creative mojo that I thought was lost under the blackhead plug of the school run and the nappy bin. I needed you. Thank you. And I’ll still be flying in for visits like a giant hairy loud pestering bumble bee at your chic little picnic! PS @lottieawinter @samgmcmeekin, I have a new Netflix pitch... 💥

Beauty Maths! Wet wipe x micellar water - landfill + really quite phenomenal cleansing power - (parabens + alcohol + fragrance) = clean skin with a conscience when you just can’t be arsed with the whole sink/flannel malarkey. Great work @skinmatrixhd but at £27.50 that’s 45p per pad - eeesh! ♻️💚 btw can anyone recommend great baby wipes that are biodegradable and affordable? I keep thinking about what @sarahjossel wrote recently: “it’s just one wet wipe - said 8 billion people” and BabyBelle shits like a machine 💚♻️ #biodegradable #crueltyfree #britishbeauty #skincare #wetwipes
