Episode 10: Sophie and Hannah Pycroft (Co-Founders Of Spectrum Collections)

August 15, 2017

Sophie and Hannah Pycroft are the sisters who co-founded the now Instagram-famous cosmetics brush brand Spectrum Collections. With no financial backing or previous knowledge of running a beauty brand, Sophie and Hannah worked tirelessly to establish their now global brand from their garage in Wales – because they had full belief that they would make a success of it.

Skip forward only a couple of years and they’ve just announced the launch of their collaboration with the Mean Girls franchise, Spectrum is now said to be worth around £8million, and their Instagram account boasting over 230,000 followers – all because they identified a gap in the market for fun, luxurious, vegan cosmetics brushes and accessories that were like nothing the industry had seen before.

We discuss self-belief, hard work paying off, learning to say no, generating unique ideas and being taken seriously in business as women who love pink and sparkles.

Episode 9: Hannah Gale (Blogger Of The Year 2017, Mum-To-Be & Ex-Digital Magazine Editor)

August 8, 2017

Undoubtedly one of the bloggersphere’s most loved and cherished personalities, Hannah exploded on to the blogging scene in 2014 after a previous career in digital media and journalism. Hannah’s unique tone of voice and *hashtag relatability* has meant her readers just can’t get enough - she’s even been named Bloggersphere Magazine’s ‘blogger of the year for 2017’. When she announced her pregnancy earlier this summer, her site temporarily crashed as it couldn’t deal with the surge in traffic from those wanting to express their support!  

We discuss the comparison trap, why she’s an oversharer, how she dealt with hiding her pregnancy, tips for finding your voice, dreams of writing a book and so much more.

Episode 8: Emily Clarkson (Hilariously Real Blogger, Podcaster, Author & Daughter of Jeremy!)

July 26, 2017

Emily founded her blog Pretty Normal Me in 2014, in her words, after basically looking at life around her and asking: what the hell?! Despite being an inherently very happy person, she felt surrounded by a world that was against her: a world that forces us into clothes that makes us cry, a world that objectifies women and a world that seems to body shame us at every opportunity. So she did the only thing she knew how to do: she wrote. Those musings became a blog, and later a podcast, and now Emily’s debut book ‘Can I Speak To Someone In Charge’ has just hit book stores nationwide.

Growing up with a famous father and the media spotlight upon her made her online journey harder than most, with Emily experiencing trolls and criticism at every turn. However, she’s turned those negative experiences and teenage anxieties into a positive force and an incessant need to help others.

July 12, 2017

Lisa started her career as a stylist, but over the last six years she’s been working at the world’s number one luxury department store to bring their vision to life via the power of social media. Lisa has been at the forefront of luxury retail marketing, having been recognized within the industry as someone that understood and implemented a digital direction; in 2016 she received a nomination to be recognized as an ‘Outstanding Woman in Retail’

What’s fascinating and inspiring about Lisa’s story is that she saw an opportunity and grasped it with both hands, daring to do what many of us wouldn’t even attempt; that gamble paid off, as Harrods’ Instagram account recently celebrated 1 million followers – a milestone that Lisa grew from zero and always had set her mind upon.

We talk about her ‘can do’ attitude, how she managed to create a whole department from a temporary contract, her advice for brands and businesses online, as well as her top tips on those wishing to follow their social media dreams.

June 27, 2017

Lex Gillies, who also goes by the name of Talonted Lex, started her journey online documenting her love of nail art; that evolved into covering her own struggles with the skin condition rosacea (which can leave skin hot, inflamed and red) and supporting women across the globe on their own journey to acceptance and management.
