She’s been described as one of the most powerful women in beauty, and yes, she is, indeed, visiting Norwich to celebrate her paperback publication of Pretty Iconic! Not only will Britain’s most trusted beauty writer, Sali Hughes be in Norwich, she will also be in conversation with make up artist and one half of beauty bloggers Pixiwoo Sam Chapman!

Pretty Iconic has been described as a ‘beauty mixtape’ by Sali, taking readers on a tour through history recalling the most influential and memorable beauty products made in recent times, with her expert commentary acting as the most informative of guides to separate the fact from the fad.

Sali considers which much-hyped beauty buys are worth the buzz and who they are best suited for, from treasured classics such as Chanel No 5, to life-changers such as Babyliss Big Hair, and the more recent releases from Charlotte Tilbury, Sunday Riley and others that are shaping the beauty industry today.

A copy of Pretty Iconic (RRP £16.99) is included in the ticket price with a glass of wine🍷. Ticket price is £20 plus £1.50 booking fee.

‘Sali Hughes has created a universe filled with galaxies of beauty secrets’ Charlotte Tilbury

‘Sali is a total joy to read. She writes about beauty with love, authority and honesty. I trust her completely’ Marian Keyes

‘Obey Sali. She knows her stuff’ India Knight

‘Sali decodes beauty for any woman with smart, simple and practical advice’ Bobbi Brown

I mentioned this on an email a few months ago, and Sali coming gives me a reason to bring it up again! If you have unwanted beauty products and toiletries, Sali and Jo Jones set up Beauty Bank back in February to support those in crisis - find out more here...

"So, how can you get involved? Well, all those dinky hotel toiletries you hurriedly sweep up before check-out now have a purpose. You can chuck an extra box of tampons or towels in your Superdrug basket, or click for two tubes of toothpaste instead of one before checking out your online shopping cart. You can ask yourself if you’re ever really likely to use the hand soaps your aunt bought you for Christmas, or whether six shampoo bottles is an entirely wise use of bathroom space. As long as it’s unopened and going spare, we want it, because someone desperately needs it. When you’ve gathered together a decent stash and removed any restricted solvents (perfume and nail polish), pack it all into a box and kindly write “Beauty Banks” on every side of it, then post here:

If you’d like to swerve the post office and cut out the middleman (and the P&P charges), you can buy us anything from our Easho wish list here and get it sent direct to us, no faff, no flannel. Actually, maybe flannel. We’ll have those, too."

TW: Hollie de Cruz and Gemma Metcalfe-Beckers

Buy tickets for TW: An Evening of Empowerment with Hollie de Cruz and Gemma Metcalfe-Beckers

Becoming a mother is a life-changing moment, for many reasons. We’ve not met one woman yet who has cracked “it”…relationship, household, babies, kids, work, looking ok, thinking of family, friends…

It can be exhausting trying to hold it all together! We’re bringing two women together for an evening of empowerment to discuss the power of positive thinking and how we can be confident and supported on our journey through motherhood.

Join us as we chat to Hollie de Cruz (you will also know her as @theyesmummum) about her new book Your Baby, Your Birth👏🏽. Drawing on her experience working with new mums, including Fearne Cotton and Giovanna Fletcher, Hollie helps women prepare for a positive not 'perfect' birth experience. She also founded the award-winning yesmum affirmation cards for pregnancy, birth and beyond, she's expecting her second child very soon and helps us all to remember the importance of self-care. In fact, her hypnobirthing and mindfulness techniques help even if you're not pregnant - Hollie will share a few tricks with us. 

Gemma, Boss of Mutha.hood - you may have seen or bought her iconic Strong Girls Club Tee or giggled at her hilarious Instagram stories. After suffering PTSD following the birth of one of her daughters, Gemma gathered strength and developed a range of products that empower and embody self worth for women. Gemma is a fountain of wisdom, believing self belief is everything and her slogans from 'Mother like no ones judging' and 'fearless female' instill women with confidence.

We are SO thrilled that Gemma and Hollie are coming to Twickenham on 9th October, to chat birth, maternal mental health, motherhood and empowerment. You will be able to ask them any burning questions you have and Hollie's new book will be available to purchase after the chat to be signed. 

Please come along, tickets are £15 plus £1.50 transaction fee.

NORWICH: The Unmumsy Mum & Man vs Baby in association with Naked Wines

Buy tickets for NORWICH: The Unmumsy Mum and Man Vs Baby in association with Naked Wines

After selling out in both Twickenham and Belfast in a few days, I'm very, very excited and honoured to welcome to Norwich; Sarah Turner and Matt Coyne, The Unmumsy Mum and Man vs Baby! That's right, TWO special guests, on one summers night, in association with the most excellent Naked Wines who are bringing their cash bar of stupendous wines and gin. I've made sure we have many seats! Please share with your friends, neighbours, aunts, uncles! 

The Unmumsy Mum - a pioneer of honest parenting chat, the hilarious and eloquent author and social media sensation Sarah Turner now has three sons and has published two Sunday Times best selling books The Unmumsy Mum and The Unmumsy Mum Diary.

Man vs Baby - the founder of 'that' Facebook post that went viral, (“hero for dads everywhere” (Daily Mirror), "Very, very funny" (Phillip Schofield) "Imperfect, honest and open" Scarlett Curtiss, Sunday Times Mag) Matt Coyne has a toddler, a ginormous social media following and is a Sunday Times bestselling author.

How would you feel about hearing them chat IN THE SAME ROOM, NORWICH!!! No, scrap that, how about a big, beautiful barn (The Octagon Barn) on a warm summers evening before the summer holidays kick off!?!

Join us as we chat about everything - the early days, the toddler days, the school days, how they manage parenting with being authors and all the hilarious highs and lows in between! There will be Q&A and Sarah and Matt will sign their books after.

Don't go home straight away! Stay around for a drink. The bar will be open until 23:00 - it's THURSDAY night, it will be the summer holidays soon. Stay and relax a bit!

DRINK

  • I'm over the moon that Naked Wines are bringing a cash bar of their artisan wines and gin. They are a super ethical Norwich based company, who crowd fund for very talented wine makers and provide top notch wine at insider prices. The most exciting wines in the world are made by small, low-production winemakers who don't have the financial muscle to get on to the UK supermarket shelves, and by maverick, artisan winemakers who want to make wines their way, not the way the big retailers want them made. 

FOOD

  • Bite The Bullitt are bringing their yummy hot food for you to buy so you don't have to eat beans on toast with the kids first, hurrah! (in their words: Primal & traditional coal fired food for festivals & events, engaging the audience on a sensory level with sound, vision, smell & punchy flavours 😏👀)

BOOKS

  • The new paperback versions of The Unmumsy Mum Diary by Sarah Turner and Dummy by Matt Coyne are available to pre-order when you buy your tickets :-)

Early bird tickets are £14.50 including a seat in the front couple of rows (the seats will be reserved for you), £16.50 thereafter plus £1.50 transaction fee.

CHARITY SUPPORT

We Got This (Sometimes!) Norwich donates 10% of profits to Get Me Out of These Four Walls, a Norfolk charity set up by a Norwich mum for mums with PND. There is an option to donate when you buy your tickets. They would be very grateful.

A donation will be made to the very important charity Kicks Count on behalf of Matt Coyne.

Unreserved Theatre Seating. Language *may* be fruity - adults only. Please note tickets for this event are non refundable but it is possible to transfer tickets to a friend - please let emma@wegotthisco.com know!

NORWICH: Embrace: Second Screening at Odeon Norwich

Embrace has been shown once this year in Norwich. Since then, the demand for another showing is so high as women want to bring their friends, daughters, nieces, colleagues again. 

Gather in Las Iguanas after for a drink or tapas if you can, please email me if you'd like to book a space (the restaurant would like to know numbers, that's all). So much to talk about after the film but it was too late last time!

More info below....

EMBRACE is a social impact documentary that explores the issue of body image. The project has been supported by nearly 9000 Kickstarter pledgers who responded to a fundraising trailer I released in 2014, which has now had over 25 million internet views. The inspiration for EMBRACE came about after I posted an unconventional before-and- after image on the internet in 2013 that sparked an international media frenzy. The image, which embraces body diversity, was seen by over 100 million people worldwide and led to hundreds of interviews and articles. But I soon realized how restrictive 4- minute TV interviews, 800 word articles and 140 characters on Twitter can be. This issue needed a louder voice on a bigger platform, so the idea of creating the documentary EMBRACE was born.” – Embrace Director Taryn Brumfitt

Rotten Tomatoes Reviews

Embrace is told from the point of view of Taryn as she traverses the globe talking to experts, women in the street and well-known personalities about the alarming rates of body image issues that are seen in people of all body types. In her affable and effervescent style, Taryn bares all (literally) to explore the factors contributing to this problem and seeks to find solutions. After 24 months of travelling, interviewing, production and post production Taryn and the Embrace team have created a film that is relevant, relatable, highly engaging – but above all life changing.

Rotten Tomatoes Reviews

Embrace had its world premiere at the 2016 Sydney Film Festival, where it made it into the festival directors’ top 5 picks and was nominated for the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Best Documentary.

It’s Monday 4th June 20:30 at Odeon Norwich (it won’t be shown on their listings, I will be there to greet you).

Unlike a traditional movie showing, the people running the screening require that 45 more tickets be reserved in the next 30 days in order for the screening to occur. 

"Body confidence, body positivity, postnatal bodies, not feeling ‘yourself’. An article of Clemmie of @mother_of_daughters in Red Magazine talks about loving your body the way it is. Natalie of @stylemesunday persuaded many women to bare all last year in the name of her #WarriorWomanProject

You're giving me feedback that body image and confidence is a topic to cover here in Norwich through the survey I'm running (here).

I came across a post by a woman in Surrey who’d been to see EMBRACE (Rating 12+) , she said it had transformed how she looked at herself and I dug a little deeper and it turns out anyone can host a one-time screening! 

I want my daughter to be empowered, confident and intelligent, and I’m interested in how I can avoid her wasting time looking at herself critically in the mirror when she’s older"

NORWICH: An audience with Simon Hooper, Father of Daughters

Simon Hooper aka Father of Daughters, the social media phenomenon of *only* 828k followers (!) is coming to Norwich. 

<Update 9th May! Hats off 🎩 to Norfolk based brand Minivino* who are coming on board and giving EVERY guest a resealable single serve of their Italian vino at An Audience with Simon Hooper @father_of_daughters on 22nd May👏🏽, read more here>

Simon is father to four girls: Anya (10), Marnie (7) and two-year-old identical twins Ottilie and Delilah. He is married to Clemmie Hooper (aka @mother_of_daughters), who is, as you know, a midwife, a social media star and author of How to Grow a Baby and Push it Out.

Most of us love a bit of honest parenting to make us feel better and Simon is the insta-king of that, bringing the dad's voice to the squares. He has now written his first book "Forever Outnumbered". I started following Clemmie last year when Will was tiny, and saw her husband had an account. How novel, I thought, a husband having his own account! Now I feel a bit invested in their family life (do you think he will still come if he reads this😝?!)

Lots of people like his posts, and think his account is funny, other people google "father of daughters job" as they aren't sure how on earth one man can have a big family, a job and post about it. A recent study found nearly half of millennial dads (up to age 35) would be willing to take a pay cut to spend more time with their children. Simon's funny and honest take on life shows how he does this parenting malarky in his family. 

Come and meet Simon at Open Norwich Tues 22nd May, and hear him chat modern fatherhood, equality, paternity leave, the juggle, why he starting documenting family life, how he’s creating a “side hustle” on instagram whilst having a full time job and what his new book is all about. You can buy his book from Waterstones (launches 3rd May) and he will sign it for you and pose for pics :)

Please arrive at 7pm, to start at 7:30pm. 

Early bird tickets are £13.50 including a seat in the front couple of rows (the seats will be reserved for you), General Admission are £15.00 plus a small booking fee for each transaction. Unreserved seating. 

👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼10% of profits from this event will be donated to Get Me Out These Four Walls, a Norfolk charity set up by a Norwich mum for mums with PND and maternal mental health issues.

Tickets are not refundable but can be transferred to another person.

TWICKENHAM: MEET MOTHER PUKKA

Mother Pukka comes to Twickenham

Is the eternal work-life balance one of your bugbears? Anna Whitehouse @mother_pukka is on a mission to make work, *work* for everyone (not just parents) with her #flexappeal campaign. It's time for Twickenham to get the ins and outs from the crusader herself, and to find out how we can persuade our friends and colleagues why flexible working is a no-brainer.

Honest parenting your style? She is also ALL about that, with her book Parenting the Sh*t out of Life that she co-wrote with husband Papa Pukka, and her brutal and hilarious takes on day to day life with Mae and Evie. 

You like a drink and having a chat with like-minded parents? Well, we have that sorted as well with the fab bar from The Turks Head on hand - your ticket includes a glass of prosecco. 

We are also welcoming Bella from behirdtherapy.com who is offering support and advice about work, she specialises in supporting parents.

Come to The Turks Head on Tuesday 8th May from 19:00, to meet and hear from podcaster, vlogger, blogger, social media star, writer and just incredible all round wonder woman Mother Pukka - you can buy her book and and she will sign it for you too :)

NORWICH: Linkedin #PowerHour

Norwich Business Training Linkedin Power Hour

Are you a time pressed freelancer, entrepreneur or business owner🙋🏽‍♀️? Are you wanting to feel more like 'you got this?'. We Got This (Sometimes!) #PowerHours are short, sharp events that invite local experts to intimate gatherings to give useful advice in specific areas that we know will improve business performance.

The first #PowerHour is about Linkedin. It is underused in almost all industries, and it wasn't until I had a chance chat with Hannah Routledge (one of the mums at school who runs a super successful business) that I started to understand that.

Hannah had just given a Linkedin talk to 400 women at a conference. I did a couple of the things she mentioned which led to a call with a previous client, and an email from a prospective client. Amazing!

What will we cover:

  • How to approach Linkedin and why should you use it
  • Your personal brand and how to write your profile
  • What to post
  • How to connect Linkedin to your business goals
  • An understanding of how to build your network

Come and join us on the mezzanine floor in The Library, Monday 30th April, 19:30. Ticket is £10 plus transaction fee. Food and drink can be ordered from the menu throughout the session at your discretion. They do a super yummy and amazing value Prix Fixe 2 course menu for £10.95, which I will be partaking in.

Open to everyone!

As a marketing freelancer and a start up founder, there is so much to learn and stuff changes continually. Podcasts and blog posts are serving me well. However, nothing is as valuable as face to face time with an expert! 

These We Got This (Sometimes!) #PowerHours for small businesses will cover super niche business topics like Media Relations + Blogger Outreach, Facebook, Instagram, E-mail Marketing, Accounts, Trade Shows and more.

I know these #PowerHour events won't be for everyone on the mailing list! If you'd like to be kept up to speed on these business events, please sign up to a new list by selecting the checkbox at the bottom on this page or just email me and I will add you!
