MIMI’S MONTHLY ROUNDUP: NOVEMBER FAVOURITES
Now that winter is well underway, I’m practically counting down the days until Christmas. Indulgent treats, festive cheer and a dash of sparkle – what’s not to love?
November is known for being a little dreary, but I’ve loved prepping my clients for the party season. Of course, getting dressed to the nines isn’t all that Christmas is about – for me, true festive spirit is all about spending time with my loved ones and showing how much I care.
Give this gift of great hair this Christmas by shopping from our new and improved e-commerce edit. Championing Black-owned brands, the platform is a careful curation of some of my favourite hair care products – from quality stocking fillers to luxurious gift sets.
Speaking of festive joy, here is Mimi’s monthly roundup – a whistlestop tour of all the things that have captured my senses in November 2022.
Mimi sees…The Woman King
Starring acting legend Viola Davis, historical epic The Woman King came out recently, and I absolutely loved it. Telling the story of the Agojie, a band of 19th century all-female warriors, the film is a must-watch for any action obsessives.
Mimi listens to…The Caroline Flanagan Podcast
Eagle-eyed readers of Mimi’s Monthly Roundup will know that I love a good personal development podcast. The Diary Of A CEO is my usual go-to, but this month I’ve been really into The Caroline Flanagan Podcast. Though the show is primarily aimed at lawyers, I think she offers great advice on how to combat imposter syndrome that could benefit everyone.
Mimi smells…Oud Palao by Diptyque
My most-adored winter scent this year is Diptyque’s Oud Palao. Warm and woody, it smells of gorgeous, creamy rose with a cosy undercurrent of incense.
Mimi feels…Uhuru’s Chebe Hair Oil
Blistering winds and chilly temperatures are beginning to take their toll. I depend on Uhuru’s Chebe Hair Oil to provide me with a shot of moisture and keep my hair feeling silky smooth.

Mimi tastes…West African cuisine at the restaurant Akoko
Fitzrovia’s Akoko restaurant is centred around three key principles: live fire cooking, umami, and spices. Blending family heritage with seasonal British produce, the menu is so thoughtfully put together, I can’t recommend it enough.
