Candice Brathwaite: Activating 'Miss Trunchbull' Mode to Get Runs Done is a Form of Self Love
Going for Goal: The Women's Health Podcast
This is our final episode in a very special series - powered by Nike - where we’re exploring all the many wonderful things that running can do for you, via chats with inspiring women. Today’s seriously energising guest - bestselling author, content creator and erstwhile marathon runner Candice Brathwaite - recently picked up running again, albeit shorter distances on her home treadmill. She runs to access what she calls 'tension'. By that she means a type of controllable struggle that encourages personal growth in all areas of life, which - in her words - she just can't get from any other form of fitness. Candice also discusses learnings from writing her latest book, YA fiction debut, Cuts Both Ways and why, when it comes to helping her daughter and stepdaughter enjoy a healthy relationship with fitness, she's leading by example - rather than telling them what to do. Oh, and if you're looking for the pep talk you need to stop standing in your own way and actually action those healthy habits, Candice shares *exactly* what she tells herself to get the thing done. Candice is joined in the coaching clinic by Nike Run Coach and youth mentor Dora Atim (who we met in episode four) to get advice on how she can reach her number one running goal right now: to run a 5k in 25 minutes.Join host Roisín Dervish-O'Kane on Instagram: @roisin.dervishokaneJoin Candice Brathwaite on Instagram: @candicebrathwaiteJoin Dora Atim on Instagram: @doradontexploreJoin Women's Health on Instagram @womenshealthukLike what you’re hearing?

"I had the key all along" with Candice Brathwaite
Candice Brathwaite shares my belief in consciousness, soul, spirituality – the innate power that exists inside us all. She's used it to overcome personal struggles, and to manifest her ideas into reality. All despite the world trying to silence her.Now a best-selling author of titles such as Sista Sister and Cuts Both Ways, and an influential voice sharing her story of black motherhood – Candice has battled through racism, beauty standards, and colourism. She's also received public backlash when she's broached taboos or fought for those made to feel "other" by society.But she approaches it all – the fun, the light, the complex and challenging – with positivity and joy. And this is because she realised she had "the key" to transformation inside herself all along.Follow Mary Portas on: Instagram: @maryportasofficial Facebook: Mary Portas And to get in touch with team Portas, email us at: email@example.com and you can subscribe to the Portas POV Newsletter for musings, provocation insights and inspiration.

Ep.12 'I would much rather a 5-figure guy who's going to exalt me than a 7-figure guy who's going to oppress me' - Candice Brathwaite gets real on female breadwinning.
Working Hard, Hardly Working
Candice Braithwaite is the Sunday Times best-selling author, presenter, journalist and founder of Make Motherhood Diverse: an initiative fighting for equal representation for mothers and parents. Initially a content creator and 'mumfluencer', Candice began posting on her socials in 2015 to document her journey of motherhood, keen to disrupt the flawless 'yummy mummy' facade online. The authenticity of her account resonated with thousands online, empowering her to write her first of three bestseller books.During the episode, I had the opportunity to speak with Candice about her revelations about being a black woman and mother. She shed light on a shocking statistic; that black women are 5x more likely to die in childbirth than white women. Candice herself went through a particularly turbulent first birth experience, meaning she could not be present in the first six weeks of her daughter's life.Throughout Candice's story, there is grit, courage and perseverance. Her experiences of systemic racism, her concerns as a black woman, and her view as to what must now be done are told with light-hearted humour and energy. Candice also speaks for the first time about an online public attack from a fellow mumfluencer that forced her to 'go mute' online.Topics:- From marketing to mumfluencer: a whistle-stop tour of Candice's career- Candice's mission: to make motherhood more inclusive- The Instagram trolling scandal (an inside scoop)- Systemic racism in healthcare and the inadequate care of black mothers- Breaking the stigmas surrounding motherhood and abortion - 'I don't need your abortion story - your body your choice'- The #1 problem with maintaining transparency online- Dating and relationships Hosted on Acast.

LIVE with Candice Brathwaite!
Should I Delete That?
This week, Alex and Em interviewed Candice Brathwaite for their first ever live episode! The recording took place on International Women's Day at George's FENOMENAL festival, a day dedicated to celebrating and redefining femininity. Candice talks about childbirth and how, as a black woman, her concerns were dismissed and she was almost fatally mistreated, an all too common experience that is explored further in her first book I Am Not Your Baby Mother (link below). The girls also explore And Just Like That, the pitfalls of comparison and, of course, Candice's incredible style...You can find Candice's books below:Sista SisterI Am Not Your Baby MotherAnd you can follow her on Instagram @candicebrathwaiteShow timestamps:Good, Bad & Awkward - 00:02:21Interview with Candice Brathwaite - 00:20:34Is It Just Me? - 01:01:04Follow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at firstname.lastname@example.orgSponsored by George at Asda, check out their latest collection at george.comProduced & edited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

Candice Brathwaite (REPLAY): Visualising Your Dreams
Ctrl Alt Delete
This is a replay episode with the brilliant Candice Brathwaite, it is one of my favourite episodes from 2020. She is the Sunday Times Bestselling author of I Am Not Your Baby Mother and Sista Sister. Her first book was called 'an urgent part-memoir, part-manifesto' about Black British motherhood. Her new book Sista Sister has been described by Cosmopolitan as "like the old sibling you wish you had growing up". She is a whip-smart, philosophical and inspirational writer, I absolutely love her work and was lucky enough to interview live recently at the Southbank Centre (thanks for having me, Candice and team!) This episode is differently worth a re-listen.
