Such an honour to meet this incredible woman. Samantha Francis’ son had a mental breakdown and ‘the system’ completely failed him. So, despite being a single parent of limited means with 5 children to support, she found a way to help her son regain his mental health on her own, and then went on to create a free programme to help others affected by mental health issues. Thank you ‘Black British City Group’ for honouring Samantha and for highlighting the issue of mental health within the African Caribbean community. Members of the BBCG, like Stephanie and Warren, use a portion of their monthly salaries to donate to one charity each year, and @find_abalance founded by Samantha, was their choice this year. I am so deeply moved and inspired by the generosity of the young members of the BBCG, and Samantha. If you are in a position to donate to @find_abalance you can do so via their website www.findabalance.org For anyone suffering with mental health issues my heart goes out to you and I pray that you get the support you need, for those lucky enough not to suffer with mental health issues let’s please remember that mental health is fragile for all of us, and we must therefore put as much care and attention into maintaining our mental health as we do our physical health. I maintain my mental health by meditating daily, and urge anyone interested in meditation to download ‘The Meaning of Life Experiment’ from your App Store, it’s completely free and is a brilliant introduction to meditation.
Helping to launch NextMeal.co.uk today! A brilliant new website to help the homeless by showing where free food near you is being served. There aren’t enough beds for the homeless in London, but there is enough food for every homeless person to have 3 hot meals everyday of the week. This website shows where! (Pic with the wonderful Martin Stone, who runs a local soup kitchen, and is the brains behind the website)

#MagnifyYourSexy @MichaelKors #Spon From the moment I met @michaelkors I've always had a soft spot for him, so I was honoured to attend the launch of his new fragrance tonight. The fashion industry isn't known for niceness, but Michael stands out for not only being uber talented, but also for being universally known as one of the warmest, nicest people. I'm super happy to say he totally lives up to his reputation. Michael, I'll always happily be there to support anything you do! Styled by @daniellenachmani Makeup @babskymakeup Hair @jaybrumant
Still reminiscing about my Birthday with my fabulous and very rowdy friends and family! #funtimes This was the moment my cake was being brought out, but they got all upset because the music was turned off! ... And that's my step-dad in the corner who isn't letting anything get between him and his desert!
At home, #sundaychillin in bed. Inspired by the @dailyconnoisseur #tedtalk on the '10 item wardrobe' and the #minimalism documentary on #netflix, I've spent my first week back in London going through my entire home getting rid of excess stuff! Have to admit that I haven't managed to reduce my wardrobe to just 10 items of clothing! But I am down to as close to keeping only the bare essentials of what I actually need and most importantly will use, everything else has been donated or given away to friends and family, and I feel sooooo much better for it. It's true what they say 'simplify and detox your space, and you detox your mind!'... I highly recommend!! #happysunday #lessstufflessstress
#homesweethome and loving it!!! Nowhere beats #London in summer!! Got off the plane and did my two 'absolute musts' post flying... an oxygen facial (thank you @elemis !!), and grounding... the best way to get in sync with a new time zone is to whip your shoes and socks off and connect with the earth for a good 20 -45 minutes!! Do that whenever you fly and you won't get #jetlag !! #grounding #earthing
