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.
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.
