Artist, and Illustrator, whose work is centered around the female form, and has an Matisse-esque vibe. @alexa_coe, alexandriacoe.com.
A seasoned ceramicist, Helen creates soft, marbled wares. Discovering her, encouraged me to traverse down a new creative path (and set up a 'pottery' expenditures tab in my budget spreadsheet, because, organisation.). @helen_levi / helenlevi.com.
Deun reminds me that warm, muted tones are not merely a colour palette, they are a lifestyle. Artist, Illustrator, co-founder of @blackgirlinom, and a spiritually attuned black woman, she's a wonderful follow to make scrolling through your social feeds, a less destructive past-time. @deunivory | deunivory.me
Co-founder of stil-la.com, I also consider Elora the founding member of that understated-oversized-glossier-lip-balm-and-rachel-comey-earrings-aesthetic that UK weather, doesn't quite allow you to re-create. Driven by detail, design, and thoughtful fabric choice, browsing through her feed is always a visually pleasing experience. @eloraaaaa
If you thought the revival of the power shoulder circa 2014, was a terrible idea, so did I, until stumbling across Maria's page. Did you know that vintage inspired, and Maria Bernard are synonyms? @maria_bernard | mariabernad.com.
Shares her insights on life, racial identity, and uncomfortable truths, with very little pretence, or desire to be perceived as ’cool’. Her twitter is a great place to gain respite from the surface-level-self-love olympics, that often inundate our social feeds. @ayishat_akinbi
Michaela Coel is a screenwriter and actress whom challenges pre-existing depictions of black women, in TV and entertainment. And her instagram stories, are hilarious. In the same breath, she will define her femininity outside of the male gaze, discuss power and racial structures within the entertainment industry, and make you laugh the kind of laugh, that will have you googling 'define: kegel' afterwards. @michaelacoel.
My love for Elizabeth Gilbert, knows no ends. She taught me about the grand misconceptions about creativity, living life with a stubborn gladness, embracing the natural paradox, mystery and magic of life. Podcasts I recommend:Magic Lessons. Books I'd recommend: Big Magic, and Eat, Pray Love. (Just, read it).
A mesmerising woman, who oft communicates, her complex lived experiences, through a series of perfectly imperfect streams of consciousness. Topics include blackness, spirituality, sensuality, and creativity. Much of what she discusses, may fall on deaf ears. But if you're open, I recommend watching herBrowns interview as a starting point, or listening toLearning and Unlearning Part 1.
She's younger than you, and more stylish too. @double3xposure.
Editor, word-smith, and world-traveller, Camilla is my point of call for articles that resonate with my experiences (Her online mag is for young women, by young women), or to discover the latest danish brand, to whom I'm going to give all of my money. @CamillaAckley | intothefoldmag.com
Lives out her truth in an unapologetic way, and offers insights around self-love, boundaries, and self exploration - theslumflower.com / @theslumflower
I'm aware of Pandora predominantly as a journalist. I have followed her writing for a while, and think it is magnificent. Articulate, culturally-relevant, and witty. In addition to this, she is somewhat of a style icon. @pandorasykes | pandorasykes.com
Designer, and all-round creative, her garments tell a story, and her images bring them to life. Her series of self-portraiture, #AlienEdits, is a must see. @lozamaleombho
