Based in North London, Viola has written about beauty for several publications, currently editing the beauty section for GLASS Online. Having spent three years studying Philosophy, her career began in the fashion industry, where Viola came to realise her true love was for lipsticks, lotions and potions. She adores writing about niche, indie brands and the latest developments in ‘green’ beauty and hopes to one day write a novel. For now she’s happy searching for that perfect shade of lipstick.

Kyra is a published and certified activist for health & happiness. She writes (culinary) articles and books and develops inspirational lifestyle projects. She is a practical idealist with the ability to realize dreams and ideas. Kyra’s work has been featured in magazines such as Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan. Her latest projects include a vegan inspiration workshop for chefs at Michelin star restaurant De Librije, the promotion of her latest book Daytox and an online food, life and style platform.

Thea Natalie began her life in fashion through modelling in the sunny state of Queensland, Australia. A move to England in 2007 opened a world of opportunity for travelling, modelling, writing and fashion blogging that began to inspire a love of the creative process and the extravagance of fashion. “The opportunities in London are like nothing you could ever imagine, you just have to work hard and love what you do!”
