Who’s ready to see me on TV 👀?

ITS TIME TO BE FOCUSED!!!


I’m so excited to announce I’m part of the brand-new series called #Highlife , starting Friday 10th September at 10pm on Channel 4.

It’s been a crazy few months filming this show…can't wait for you to see what I've been up to.. let’s go team @t0nit0ne @kamille @tazerofficial @chieferdcypha @berniciaboateng @kiddwaya @cuppymusic 🏆❤️

TTYA LONDON : The Summer Soirée.

Still buzzing from this event if I’m honest.

Never had so many kind and inspiring DM’s 🥺
The ethos of my brand has also been an inclusive space for the excluded girl. I started building this community over 8 years ago as a safe space.

Although it looks easy no brands wanted to sponsor an event like this back then but we’ll save that story for another day.
I say all that to say I’m inspired by so many. A room full of the change and representation I wish I had growing up.

In a world where everything is becoming metrics and data, you don’t need a million followers on this platform to be a woman of influence.

Thank you to the @fentybeauty team for believing in the vision and pioneering change in the way we see beauty. Billionaire business levels 🏆

@cirocvodka for keeping the drinks flowing 🍹and to all the mega babes that pulled up to support the vision.

@vanessakingori - Thank you for your wisdom and advice and for making the vision crystal clear 👑

@mercedesfbenson , @djmelodykane + @rachaelanson you killed it! The vibes can not be denied!

Change is coming! #DONTCRYDONTBEG

Its the women of influence for me!

Special moment for @vanessakingori.

A woman who I first met 6 years ago. She gave her time for me to speak on a panel I curated. She was first female publisher EVER at Conde Nast + is now Chief Business Officer @britishvogue ! Thank you for your encouragement over the years and for reminding me to stand tall and own it!

I started TTYA as an inclusive space for excluded girls - through my clothing brand I created a space for girls like me who were excluded from the fashion conversation. Over the years this has grown bigger than just a clothing brand into what has manifested into a global community.

So many of us have been firsts. The only black girl at the table the only black girl in the room and as I looked around the room last night my heart was full. We are the representation we want to see and I could of filled that space 5 times over! It’s only the beginning. Trust and believe 🤝

Thank you ladies 🎉 #ttyatalks

Week 4. Challenge 4!

This week the focus is Pushing yourself.

I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and push myself even harder by trying a new (hard!) workout so I called on the help of my good friend @ciaralondon to help me out and show me one of her workouts.

I wanted to see just how far I’ve pushed myself so tracked my activity using the Activity Tracker on the #GalaxyWatch3.

For this week’s challenge, I’m challenging you to come out of your comfort zone! It can be something as small as going for a walk or attending a work out class, you can try it out with a friend and motivate each other! Let’s do thisssssss!

@SamsungUk #GalaxyWatch3 #DontJustWatch #Ad

For all those who posted a black square last year 👀 meet the co - founder of #theshowmustbepaused @bri_anna !

With a 10 year + career in the music industry she has worked with industry heavyweights from the late Nipsey Hustle, Meek Mill, Janelle Monae to Stormzy + Burna Boy. Episode out now! Link in bio 🏆 #ttyatalks
Produced by @tolly_t 👑

Minister of Enjoyment 🎉🥳

Queen @serenawilliams understood the assignment! This is still my fav print I’ve designed to date.

This has made my day! TTYAX @sian_swimwear 🏆

This week the focus is Rest + Wellness.

Big up everyone who got their 10K on!

Exercise is great but we must allow time for our body to rest and recover! Using my #GalaxyWatch3 I’ve tracked my sleep score! Guys…I was definitely not getting enough sleep.

Incorporating meditation + calm breathing I’ve made a more conscious effort to get more rest! Over the course of a week I improved my sleep score dramatically!

For this week’s challenge, I’m challenging you to focus on rest and wellness and make just 1 lifestyle change. It can be something as small as I did which was just making sure I was sleeping more than 5 hours a night. Drop me a comment and let me know what changes you are aiming for. Let’s do thisssssss!

@SamsungUk #GalaxyWatch3 #DontJustWatch #Ad

Tbh I don’t really know how I’ve been operating without a smart watch 😨.

My #GalaxyWatch3 is my perfect partner because it allows me to sync my running playlist so easily 🏃🏾‍♀️ and you know the tunes hit different when it’s Afrobeats + Soulful house 🙅🏾‍♀️🙅🏾‍♀️🙅🏾‍♀️

For this week’s challenge, I’m challenging you to create your own Spotify playlist to join you on your running routes. Whose on your list?

New Month! Big Energy!
I’ve really been trying to stay on top of my well-being especially through lockdown.

I’m constantly looking to try new things even if it’s just as simple as changing my running route!

I've partnered with @SamsungUK on the Galaxy Watch3 ‘Don’t Just Watch…’ campaign and over the next 4 weeks, I’ll set a series of challenges for you all to join me on.

This week's challenge is to complete a 10k run. Add me on Strava so we can do this together!

I’m protecting my knees at the moment (100k challenge finished me) so join me doing smaller 10k runs with toning exercises in between. LEGS. BUMS AND TUMS for the win 🤣. Let’s be FOCUSED 🙅🏾‍♀️🏃🏾‍♀️💦

8th March - 8th April

I started this first lockdown and honestly it help my mental health so much! Just getting up and getting out allowed me to free some brain space for creative ideas.

You can walk it, run it, stroll with the pram even crawl it if you like 🤣🤣 but just try it with me. When you break it down it’s 3.3 kilometres a day. Easy right 🤣🤣. We start Monday.

As a freelancer and owner of a small business the last few months have been super challenging!


The amazing thing I’ve learnt about myself is the ability to keep going. Through this down time and with a little help from my friends, #TTYATalks ( @ttyatalks ) the podcast was born and it’s touched so many women in ways I never imagined.

When people ask how’s it going I often dont know what to say because it’s still going.

I’ve learnt to go with the flow and appreciate what I have. Celebrate the small wins and enjoy the journey.

Thank you @glenfiddichwhisky for recognising maverick spirit in leaders across Art, Fashion and Entrepreneurship and a little reminder that tough times don’t last ❤️

Antalya, Turkey 2020.

So many people have asked me about travelling so writing some points here.


-
I flew from Gatwick. Masks are mandatory in the airport. The process was straight forward and super quick, it literally took me 5 minutes to check in and go through security. Airport was spotless and staff where just so happy to see people again!
-
Nothing at the airport was open except WH Smith & Boots so definitely eat before arriving.
-
Expect your temperature to be checked before boarding your flight. However is was crazy to me they did not do this on my return to the UK 🤷🏾‍♀️?
-
Pre boarding we were issued with a care package which contained hand sanitiser and wipes. I would advice to also bring your own.
-
I was extra and completely disinfected my area, again I recommend bringing your own products to do this. Seats were spaced out and flight was super chill.
-
To return you have to fill in an online ‘Return to the UK’ form. Do this before arriving at the airport. Saves time as they don’t allow you to fly without the reference number

Enjoy yourselves, Travel Safe 🙅🏾‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🌞

Reflection & Rejuvenation.

TTYA TALKS : THE PODCAST EP 9 w/ @fkatwigs. Using my platform to speak out about race, I’ve lost some followers & gained some new followers (👋🏾).

The last couple of weeks have been extremely powerful and I’m increasingly encouraged and inspired by my peers in the push for change. When we recorded this episode back in May we spoke about everything from creativity in music, race trolls to Twigs’ battle with Fibroids. Up to 80% percent of women develop fibroids by the time they reach the age of 50 with women of colour disproportionately at the higher end of the spectrum. Behind a shy exterior Twigs is an incredible creative, powerhouse and business woman. TTYA Talks is a space where we can have open dialog and speak about real issues in career and lifestyle within our community. I hope you guys can listen to this episode with an open mind and an open heart. It’s a special one. Link in bio #ttyatalks ✊🏾🖤

We really need to understand the media’s role in this battle for change.

They weaponise words like ‘BLACK’ ‘THUGS’ and ‘VIOLENCE’ to vilify black lives matter night after night in the media. Black people are over represented in the news as criminals to de humanise us. Deliberately miseducating the general public.

Where are the WHITE RACIST VIOLENT THUG tag lines on today’s news outlets please? Which demonstrators clashed with police? Let’s be clear. They never use colour in the same way.
What we see Boris & the media outlets doing is heavily criminalising the black lives matter movement. Please look at slide 2. WTF has this behaviour got to do with black lives matter? Yet the media find a way to group it all together. -

Yesterday, Met police imposed section 60 power which gives officers the greater use of stop and search in the key protesting areas. We already know a black male is almost 10 times more liking to be stopped and searched than a white male so who are these greater uses of power directly going to effect? They wanted to use this to show high arrest numbers of black youths. It backfired because the black lives matter protest was cancelled. Did the same section 60 apply to these thugs?
-

Do you think we could openly punch police in the face, throw smoke bombs and fire works and walk home without excessive police force and multiple arrests?
We must continue to apply the pressure.Our phones & Social media are powerful tools when used in the correct way.
I urge you all to go and read the leaked COVID 19 report that clearly states racism contributed to disproportionately high impact on the BAME community. Very interesting read. -

Whilst we are on the subject of the word BAME, I’m going to throw it out there that I find it insulting. What are your thoughts on the word ‘BAME’?

Shall we call this white on white crime since they love labels so much?

🤔🤷🏾‍♀️ Imagine living in a world where police can shoot us down, kill us, taser us in our own homes yet white radicals can openly punch police in the face with no apprehension. -

Imagine being labelled ‘Thugs’ for protesting against racism, injustice and inequality yet these goats can run wild and urinate on the very monuments they claim they are here to protect.
Imagine being such a bigot that your reaction to the demand for the end of racial injustice is to travel across country to insight a race war. This has nothing to do with the Churchill statue otherwise you wouldn’t allow neo nazis to salute in front of it. -

Priti Patel where is the heavy handedness you promised with 24 hour express jail time against violent behaviour or was this only for the black lives matter protestors?
These goats have exposed their racism, hypocrisy and violence all by themselves. -

To be clear we march for equality! What we are seeing today is a protest for superiority. -

If ALL lives matter, like you love to say than surely that includes BLACK lives too? Make it make sense.- Oh and Happy Birthday Queen Lizzy. Look at your streets. Hope that bday cake is sweet 😑

Yesterday I marched with my siblings & my 9 year old nephew.

I hope we can be the change he needs to see for the next generation.
Those that know me, know how much time I spend behind the scenes pushing for us. Challenging brands / corporations on ideals, having those uncomfortable conversations having to listen to us referred to as Ghetto the list goes on.
I’ve been thinking a lot about next steps. I don’t have the answers but I’m open to speaking more to my peers on this. One thing that has come to mind is Leadership and Economic strength in the Black Community. Who will be leading this narrative going forward? Fashion can’t be on the left and music on the right. It’s all inter-linked. We need leaders from ALL industries under 1 umbrella. Agriculture, Music, Fashion, Engineering, Law , Tech, Education, Finance, Retail , Hospitality & Social Care so we can move as a fist rather than fingers. Just some of my early morning thoughts. Self isolating after a weekend of protesting but looking forward to this weeks conversations. All lives matter when blacks lives do.

NO JUSTICE. NO PEACE. NO RACIST POLICE ✊🏾 #blacklivesmatter

#blacklivesmatter everyday. Please apply your external social media messaging to your internal business structure.

Thanks. Make it make sense

BLACK LIVES MATTER
We are not a trend. We don’t need your performative activism. We need action!

Your external messaging must match your internal business structure otherwise you are a hypocrite. We are looking at your exec boards and your work force 👀 #blackouttuesday #TheShowMustBePaused #wearetired

Heavy heart, Heavy thoughts. Does your internal business structure,ethos, team structure match your external social media messaging?

CHANGE MUST START FROM THE INSIDE OUT We don’t need your statements, we need action #wearetired #blacklivesmatter #showthereceipts 🤡

NO JUSTICE. NO PEACE. US AS BLACK PEOPLE AND OUR VALUABLE CULTURE MUST BE PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS!!!

At the beginning of the month I decided to start the #100kmaychallenge just as a way to dig my way out of the anxiety of the effects of COVID-19 in regards to having no work.

I can’t express in words what running does for me. I can clear my thoughts and come up with some of the best ideas whilst on a run whilst singing my favourite house songs at the top of my voice 😂. Anyway fast forward I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who joined the challenge! I’ve received sooo many messages from peeps who just tried and have successfully completed the challenge never thinking they could do it! It’s been funny to see (not mentioning any names @ishobande 😂) competitiveness 😂. There’s still 7 days left to complete and even if you don’t finish, it’s important that you at least tried and pushed yourself out of your comfort zone. Here’s to next months challenge 👀. I would love to hear more testimonies...feel free to DM. Lastly. If you don’t already, follow @djpioneer @djsupad @kismetdon @sefkombo @papafeevs @tippademus @cold_steps @dj_jukess on here and soundcloud. Their mixes make me so so happy, uplift my spirits and remind me of better times to come.

TTYA Talks - The podcast is launching tomorrow!

I started the panels back in 2015, focusing on navigating through a creative career, providing global access to successful women working across the creative industries. When life throws you lemons we make lemonade! I’ve used this quarantine time to record the first series from home! Each episode will highlight successful women who are pioneering across creative & sport and give real insight to better understanding job roles available. Excited for this. All info will be posted over on @ttyalondon so make sure are following ❣️🤝🙏🏾 #ttyatalks

Thank you to all the lovely ladies that joined the first #TTYATalks book club.

Today’s book was Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams ( @candicec_w ). I literally listened (on audio book) to it in 2 days whilst in quarantine. It was great to connect with amazing women and lift up our spirits.
Next book is ‘My Sister, the Serial Killer’ by Oyinkan Braithwaite. 2 week read time. LETSSS GOOOO ❣️

Who woulda thought that when we shot this last July it would have so much significance to the times we are in today.

Check on your friends, especially those who have small businesses or are self employed. Share info - we are stronger together! Myself & @graceladoja for @jendaya.official shot by the don @philippraheem 🇳🇬

Cheers to a new week. To think how much has changed in the last few days.

It’s not the ideal situation for anyone self employed but I’m actually looking forward to slowing down and taking time to just be still. Just bought a tone of audio books! Who’s down for a virtual book club? Also currently planning ‘We Move’ supper club pt 2 🙏🏾✊🏾 🎥 @shotbydaliadias #iwd2020 #wemove #itsgoodtotalk

@ttyalondon ‘WE MOVE’ supper club. Thank you to @oriana_letbuddy & @t0nit0ne for delivering such relevant keynotes on everything from business, careers to steps on preserving our mental health.


Key pointers
Oriana:
Invest in yourself. Research about your employment rights, salary scales and the skill of negtiation.
Adapt to the challenges you face by looking after your mental health as a preventative measure and not a response to a mental health illness.
Five skills to improve your mental health- Connect, Be Active, Keep learning, Give, Take notice.
Take notice means being present, taking notice and being aware of your emotions.
Toni:
Stop comparing timelines and throw away deadlines.
You can have it all, if all is what you desire.
Do not disregard the importance of taking care of your physical and mental health.
Prioritise yourself and know when to say no.
Know your worth and believe in your skills and your potential.
📸 @shotbydaliadias

@TTYALondon presents the ‘We Move’ supper club celebrating women of colour who work within the creative industries.

So much to say but I’m going to keep it direct. The most important point I want to make is that ‘influence’ is not determined by how many followers you have on this platform. REAL influence is using your platform to champion your community. I was so deflated by brands, my old agency who are/were so consumed using you to access ‘celebrity’. I influence my community, give us a safe space to unite/ be celebrated and push/ unlock boundaries! With that said I’d love to thank all the ladies who gave up their time at such short notice, to celebrate with me yesterday. Time is the only thing not promised. Creating memories and making real change is my number 1 priority. I did the best I could, we go again bigger next year I promise you that. ✊🏾WE MOVE ✊🏾 📸 @onlydestt

Happy International Women’s Day to all my Queens ✊🏾

Discussing ‘The rising impact of African culture in UK/Global music’ today with a super strong panel.

Key things I took away, were fantastic points on infrastructure & education. Thank you @anniemac and the incredible @anniemacpresents team. Real discussion, real insight & real conversations.

Supporting the sis @anniemac today! Looking forward to talking the tings with some real ones today!

See you there. Camden House 5pm 🤝 @anniemacpresents

The journey of the first @TTYALONDON catwalk show in Lagos, Nigeria.

12 months on after an amazing collaboration this year with @tokoyojamess I wanted to recap on the amazing journey that got me to this point. EP 3 recaps in conversation with myself and @shotbydaliadias our experience after returning from Lagos. The biggest lesson I took away from the whole experience was just the ability to go for it! If you don’t try you never know what can happen. We were able to connect with soooo many amazing people and worked with talented brands @dailypaper @bearded_genius & @sian_swimwear. On reflection I wish I had just enjoyed the process more and celebrated this massive achievement. I will definitely learn from this moving forward. I hope you watch this and are inspired to go for what you want. The road is never easy but always worth it! This is the road to lagos fashion week! 🎥 @olucreates

Fun Fact: 11 years ago I walked into ASOS. Fresh from New York nervous about going into commercial fashion.

I worked as a stylist for over 2 years and I was so impressed by the youthfulness of the company. I made so many friends many I still connect with daily and learnt so much about e-commerce! My first lookbook for TTYA was shot and created by my amazing friends I met at ASOS! ( @joehuntphotography @jessieoo77 @sadebowen ). It’s crazy that I now sit on the other side of the camera but the universe has a funny way of aligning. Thank you @asos for the ‘MY STYLE’ feature. To all the crew and staff that believe in me & TTYA and continue to help me push and grow the brand - @biancapeltier @presssteph @gemstoneunicorn. I didn’t come into fashion wanting to be a fashion designer. I just wanted a maxi dress that would fit me lol! Inclusivity has been the brand ethos from the jump and regardless of what happens next I know that I’ve been able to use my platform for change! Tall is now one of the biggest market share categories and continues to grow! Any way enough from me. I just wanted to big up all my ASOS crew old and new. Moral of the story : I know we use this platform to show highlights but things often don’t just happen overnight! Nurture and keep good friendships/relationships!

J’ouvert 2019. Always forward, never backwards. #wemove #shoxseason #inklusivsound 📸 @shigetomiyata

Still not over carnival tbh 🤷🏾‍♀️. #nottinghillcarnival #inklusivsound #wemove 📸 @zachslens

J’ouvert- the creole french term for “dawn” “daybreak”.

It’s one of Notting Hill Carnival’s best kept secrets. The origins of street parties associated with J'ouvert coincide with the emancipation from slavery in 1838. Emancipation provided Africans with the opportunity not only to participate in Carnival, but to embrace it as an expression of their new found freedom. This year we assembled a crew to explore and join in the celebration, which involves calypso/soca bands and their followers dancing through the streets. Honestly my best carnival experience to date. #inklusivsound #nottinghillcarnival #jouvert #shoxseason 🎥 @cordelljay #wemove

#Carnival2019 ! So much to say so many people to thank! Full Recap coming soon.

Spoke to @drapersonline about my views on the new favourite buzz word “diversity” in relation to the fashion industry.

Black culture IS popular culture. It’s not enough to just use more black models to front your campaign. Diversity needs to work from inside of the business out - just my thoughts 💭 🤷🏾‍♀️

One, don't pick up the phone
You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone


Two, don't let him in
You'll have to kick him out again

Three, don't be his friend
You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning

And if you're under him
You ain't getting over him

We love you @dualipa 💕

Yesterday,I had chills down my spine as I visted #ELMINACASTLE.

The place where hundreds of thousands of our African brothers and sisters were shackled, raped, beaten and sold. Not only was it a time to reflect but also a time to understand our history. As we walked through the dark empty tunnel of ‘no return’ I can’t even begin to explain the smell that is still so potent. Ancestors all I can say is I honour you. “May those who died rest in peace, May those who return find their roots” 💔 #homecoming #prayforlibya
