Watched once here but definitely going back for round 2 & 3! Credits: Photo: @joyofodu Model: @_jsunday Makeup: @missevasky Queen & Inspiration: @danaigurira#mondaymotivation
'Our imperfections and scars are what make us human. After all, all air brushed skin has no story to tell.

You can share the love anytime, not just on Valentines day. We are putting the link to her products in our bio today, a few clicks and you can get this goodness straight to your door! ⠀
Its Valentine's Day! Our spotlight today is on Rebekah Mate-Kole Rampe, founder of @kukisnaturals. It is so lovely to have her as part of our #ShareTheLove campaign and we had such a good time catching up the old school way (in person!) this week. She is passionate about making natural, high quality skincare products which are accessible to people at a reasonable price point. I love her products and the texture of her products is out of this world. She says: "I soon realised that I really enjoyed experimenting with all the natural oils, I loved the results on my skin and most importantly it made me very happy... I am proud that in the few months I have been trading, I have gotten really great feedback from customers about the quality of my products" We are so pleased to have her products on @JanetsList. You can share the love anytime, not just on Valentines day. We are putting the link to her products in our bio today, a few clicks and you can get this goodness straight to your door!#sharethelove
"Who says we have to feel guilty because we take time out for ourselves? I'm an 'ole fashioned' girl who loves a long soak in the bath, scented with bath salts, my exfoliating mitt, a good book sometimes and the divine aroma from our candle collection" - Jacalyn of @ndulgewellbeing on @JanetsList :) ⠀ ⠀ Get yourself some of that goodness!

We are sharing the love, all of this week and today the spotlight is on Jacalyn Belgrave, founder of @ndulgewellbeing. Very excited to have her as part of our #ShareTheLove campaign. ⠀ Jacalyn has been in manufacturing for over ten years. She is passionate about creating effective products with highly concentrated, active botanicals. ⠀ ⠀ She says: "I have always used natural remedies from my parents and grandparents and I was raised to do so. Whether I had a cough, a headache, a fever or even a cut, I knew that if I created some concoction and wrapped it around the affected area it would work and I would be healed... I eventually decided to take a course to learn how to formulate soaps and it was here that my Ndulge journey began" ⠀ ⠀ We are so pleased to have her products on @JanetsList.

I will not compare myself to others.⠀ I stay in my lane. ⠀ I compare myself only to how far I have come and where I want to go⠀ - @alifemoreinspired. ⠀ ⠀ Thrilled to have @alifemoreinspired on @JanetsList. Get yourself a pack of love and inspiration through their fantastic affirmation card sets. Link in our bio.
How is this for #mondaymotivation? We are so pleased to have Nicola Rae-Wickham of @alifemoreinspired on @JanetsList and excited to have her as part of our #ShareTheLove campaign. ⠀ ⠀ In business and in life, it is so easy to not get on with yourself - that inner critic can sometimes say mean things and make you feel like you are a failure and that nothing will ever work for you. ⠀ ⠀ Which is why the work that Nicola is doing is so important. As a certified coach, she helps women push through with their creative ideas. ⠀ ⠀ She also has a great range of affirmation cards and products which we are thrilled to have on @JanetsList. These are an easy and accessible way to fix your inner dialogue when it goes astray. It is also a great gift for you and others. We have popped the link in the bio. A few clicks and it will be on its way to you. ⠀#mondaymotivation #sharethelove
Our theme its week is #ShareTheLove and the spotlight today is on @EquiBotanics. ⠀ ⠀ In keeping with the theme, these are some of the lovely things people have said online about @equibotanics Marula Oil leave-in conditioner: ⠀ ⠀ 'I absolutely love this conditioner, it feels so silky on my licked african hair and didn't unravel my locks which was a concern for me. It has left my hair really moisturised for 2 weeks now and counting" ⠀ ⠀ 'I love this product, I need to purchase more" ⠀ ⠀ 'I am so in love with the Marula conditioner and this makes me always want to get my hair done. It is fantastic, very nice fragrance"⠀ Get yourself some using the link in our bio ❤️#sharethelove
We are starting off our #ShareTheLove week with Ekwy Chukwuji-Nnene (@I_am_equi) the founder of @EQUIBotanics. It is a premium haircare brand with a perfectly formed product - the Marula Oil leave-in conditioner. ⠀ ⠀ Ekwy has the most gorgeous hair, is knowledgeable and tells fantastic hair stories. These help us all to love our hair that little bit more as well as encouraging our little ones to do so! ⠀ ⠀ She says: "Did you know that the widely accepted hairdressing NVQ excludes Afro hair training and treats it as a completely separate and additional costed module, which is a key reason why afro-textured or curly women cannot get their hair cut, washed or blow-dried when they walk into any old high street salon?" ⠀ ⠀ Watch this space as Ekwy continues to make waves with her great brand. If you would like to get her great product, we've put the link in the bio (and we ship to Europe, America & Australia) ⠀#london #diversitymatters #curlyhair #sharethelove #mua #mindset #inclusion #girlbosses #representationmatters #valentinesweek #equibotanics #janetslist #washday #naturalhair #marulaoil #ecoluxe #womensupportingwomen #naturalhaircommunity #diversity #detoxmarket #werk #equality #premiumhaircare #galentines #organichaircare #valentinesday #melanin #valentinesday2018
Whether you wear red on the day and expect cards/flowers/etc or if you hate the day and see it as a highly commercialised event - we can all agree on one thing. The world needs more love. Valentines Day is on its way :) ⠀ ⠀ As female entrepreneurs, we are nowhere without our supportive crew of business besties. Our galentines turned up way before our men and will stay on even though the men/women don't :) For those of us who have amazing life partners, it is an extra opportunity to show them some love and cherish them. Show some love to your fam too, the originals who are always there. ⠀ ⠀ With that in mind, we thought it would be great to #ShareTheLove in our mini-campaign starting tomorrow. We will introduce you to some fab brands who are relatively new on @Janet's List. ⠀ More importantly, put your money where your mouth is. We have curated a fantastic list of amazing brands by women of colour and you can buy from them in one place. Go forth and buy! Put money directly into the pockets of WoC founders. Link in our bio to discover fab WoC brands. .⠀ A quick one to #ShareTheLove from this week. That's me (Janet) in the pic, rushing in an Uber to give a talk at a private members club on Monday. ⠀ - The talk came through one of the loveliest people I know and if she is reading this she will know who she is. ⠀ - I had my makeup done by the ace @loribeemua who I had met and was doubly recommended by @vanessasanyauke and @projectembrace. ⠀ -I was wearing a fab necklace from @valeri_christina who have me honest and useful feedback when I was launching @JanetsList in December 2017.⠀ - I was feeling a bit down earlier this week when I received the bestest whatsapp voice message from my sister friend @muthonidrummerqueen. ⠀ - Rose, the founder of @floracurl is always inspiring me and keeping me moving ⠀ - My girl @globalstyleservices is an MVP even when we have to have Skype calls at 10:45pm on a Thursday. ⠀ ⠀ I am running out of characters so please, give some love in the comments to the people who have made a difference to you last week. And join us in #ShareTheLove this week xxx J#sharethelove
Aaah, its #finallyfebruary and for our #fridayfeels we are going to go with a recent throwback. @mayajama looking absolutely stunning in this gorgeous dress by @alonuko. The best designs come out of @alonuko - such a fab business and was great to see her work receive mainstream coverage. . Fun fact - I discovered @alonuko via @temitippytopes who was one of my early muses for Janet's List ❤️. Her wedding a few years ago was 💯and observing her planning for her wedding made me realise how important the Instagram community is, especially for WoC in business. Happy Friday everyone 💋x J#fridayfeels #finallyfebruary
#TOBfollows @janetoganah, founder of the much-needed @janetslist (and former barrister by the by). We know many of you are interested in supporting upcoming, top quality brands by women of colour but might not know where to find them. Well @janetslist is the answer to your prayers! We can never have too many champions who celebrate #woc, especially when they’re busy making real change like Janet 💜🧡💛💙 . . #womenofcolour #wocbusinesses #wocentrepreneurs #femaleentrepreneurs #blackbusinesses #diversity #inclusion #representation #equality #womenofcolourbusinesses #celebratewoc #ff #followfriday #tobff #supportwoc #wocbrands #shopthelist #janetslist #janetoganah#womenofcolourbusinesses #tobff #shopthelist #representation #inclusion #janetslist #followfriday #tobfollows #womenofcolour #wocbusinesses #diversity #wocbrands #femaleentrepreneurs #wocentrepreneurs #woc #blackbusinesses #equality #supportwoc #janetoganah #ff #celebratewoc
Cast those winter blues away on #bluemonday with a lovely dose of #mondaymotivation. ❄️💨 . This is Sabriner Wanjiku, Kenya's first woman representative at the Winter Olympics in South Korea next month. She will the only representative from Kenya. . Women who forge their own path, who are not afraid to go it alone, who find a way without the support (skiing is bloody expensive and I doubt she's always hard financial support from Kenya Gov) are to be admired and uplifted. . Sending you some of her bold and positive vibes as you start your week. What one thing do you need to get sorted this week? Let us know in the comments. At this end it's catching up with any missed emails from the vortex of launch and holidays. Have a good one 🙌🏾 J#bluemonday #mondaymotivation
@serenawilliams is💯our #slayingonsaturday 👑 this week. Where do I start? First of all we all want to know - how does she do it? 2017 she won tournaments while pregnant, had a baby, got through a serious medical situation, had the wedding of dreams and managed to be an all round good person, solid friend and such an inspiration. . A couple of lines from her @voguemagazine interview: "It’s no secret that a high capacity to delay gratification—to place discipline and self-sacrifice in the service of a dream that shimmers in the distance like a mirage—is among the distinguishing characteristics of the elite athlete. Serena is a special case, of course, an athlete whose unique gifts fused with years of hard work to produce an avalanche of victories—more, she swears, than she ever dreamed of as a braided nine-year-old captured uncomfortably in the pages of her local newspaper" . Learning how to delay gratification is such an important tool, especially in business where there are so many rough patches, one can sometimes feel like giving up or losing hope. Persistence, professionalism, working on your mindset and surrounding your self with the right people is key. . I've got to say, I'm still learning 😬. Have a good Saturday x J Pic Credit: @voguemagazine#slayingonsaturday

They say January is the 'monday' of the year and we are definitely feeling it at this end. It's not always easy to get back into the swing of things, the cold miserable weather doesn't help and it can be difficult to stay motivated. . What you need to do when that happens to to find women who give life and spend time with them. . For that reason, we give you Aunty @traceeellisross who was slaying and serving all kinds of life at the @goldenglobes last night in all black. . Most women attending the #goldenglobes wore back in support of #MeToo campaign because #TimeIsUp - women are done with facing sexual harassment and other kinds of injustice at the hands of men, especially those misusing their power. There's some #mondaymotivation to get you going. Have a good week.#mondaymotivation #timeisup #goldenglobes #metoo
The city that keeps on giving. So lovely to catch up with another of my favourite peeps at @afropunk Jo'burg - here's the incredible & lovely soul @misskihoro. . Such a beautiful soul + she has an amazing African music radio show #AfroCentral (please listen). Patricia is also a comedian & a 💯social media queen. A woman of many talents. Love her ❤️#afrocentral
Wrapping up our 💯#FoundersWhoSlay series is Mahawa Kamara, founder of @thesoapconnoisseur ⚡️💥 . The Soap Connoisseur specialises in creating eco-friendly, organic skincare and toiletries. Using the uniqueness of plant based ingredients, their products are expertly crafted through traditional and artisan methods. . Mahawa Kamara started her business after giving birth to her daughter. Her daughter had very sensitve skin and she decided to make soaps for her and to use oil and butters to make bathing products. She says: "...I made the first soap for my daughter and it did not irritate her skin. . I knew then that I had a product I could sell." We love Mahawa and her fantastic brand; we are so pleased to have her on @janetslist. For more info and to buy, check out the link in our bio x J#founderswhoslay
A hashtag is a type of metadata tag used on social network and microblogging services which makes it easier for users to find messages with a specific theme or content. Users create and use hashtags by placing the number sign or pound sign (colloquially known as the hash character # in reference to its resemblance to several slices or chops with a sharp implement) in front of a word or unspaced phrase, either in the main text of a message or at the end. Searching for that hashtag will yield each message that has been tagged with it. A hashtag archive is consequently collected into a single stream under the same hashtag. For example, on the photo-sharing service Instagram, the hashtag #bluesky allows users to find all the posts that have been tagged using that hashtag. janetslist instagram
