Freddie Harrel is a prominent style blogger (having won Cosmopolitan Influencer of the Year ’18), confidence coach, entrepreneur and mum to a young son. Freddie has an amazing vibrancy and energy about her, which really comes through in our chat.

We discuss:

  • Her journey from corporate finance to fashion blogging, and how this mirrored her personal growth from self-hatred to self-acceptance.

  • The vital role therapy played in allowing her to understand the different aspects of herself that allowed her flourish in all aspects of her life, and overcome self-hatred.

  • The spiritual practices she uses today, including gratitude, journaling and law of attraction principles to manifest the energy and situations she wants in her life.

  • Motherhood and guilt, particularly the guilt associated through working through pregnancy and early motherhood.

  • Recognising our individual strengths as mums and  how it’s good to acknowledge that we are sometimes better with children at different stages of their lives.
