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

‘If it’s on my face, it’s because Sali recommended it’ Caitlin Moran

‘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:

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: 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"

You don't feel like you. There is an enormous momentum on social media of women who have become stronger having become mothers, and Gemma, BOSS of Mutha.Hood is one of them.

NORWICH: Embrace: One-off screening at Odeon Norwich

Screen Shot 2018-05-02 at 15.13.58.png

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"
