2015-2018– Award-Winning Blog, Writer and Content Creator

In 2016, Sareta created an award-winning blog, Kiki Blah-Blah. In addition to her own writing, Sareta assembled a team of bloggers and together they covered a wide range of topics including parenting, food, travel, and more.

Sareta wrote a comedy short called ‘Insta Mum’, produced by Masked Pony Productions and starring British Actress Chizzy Akudolu. ‘Insta Mum’ was based on Sareta’s experiences as a ‘Mummy Blogger’.

As Kiki Blah-Blah grew, inevitably, so did the level of commitment. Unfortunately, without the means to financially fund the project, Sareta decided to close the collaborative blog, go it alone, and take the next steps in her creative journey. @HeySareta socials and saretafontaine.com were born and became the new home for Sareta’s creative endeavours, including creative writing and content creation.

In 2012 Sareta founded a small business called ‘Dirt & Glitter’. Sareta created a variety of creative hand-crafted soaps, which were sold online and in commercial retail spaces. Dirt & Glitter was featured in IDOL Magazine, grabbing the attention of new customers and beauty bloggers.

Although the business was booming, Sareta temporarily ceased trading in 2014 to go on maternity leave. However, during that time, changes to European Cosmetic Laws affected her decision to reopen.

Dirt & Glitter is currently on hold; watch this space.

Trust the Neurodiverse Process - E30 - Women Who Rebrand-Ilona Bannister

Ilona Bannister is an American immigrant, qualified US attorney, and UK solicitor turned author.
Ilona grew up on Staten Island and lived in New York City until she married her British bae and moved to London. She practised immigration law in the UK before taking a career break to raise her two young sons and unexpectedly found herself writing fiction. When I Ran Away is her first novel, and Little Prisons is her second.

Ilona’s first book, When I Ran Away, tackled love, mental health and motherhood against the backdrop of 9/11. Her latest novel, Little Prisons, is a book about immigration that addresses domestic workers, coercive control, mental health and loneliness. Nevertheless, there are laugh-out-loud moments in both. As a so-called “neurotypical” individual, Ilona has reflected on the influence that her neurodiverse family has had on her, unlocking her creativity in ways she never thought possible. Her books reflect her life and are heavily influenced by the lives of those around her. 

Topics discussed during this episode: 

  • Writing a book through a pandemic.
  • The unexpected benefits of living with a neurodiverse family.   
  • The UK’s current immigration process and what we can do to support the lives of struggling refugees.  
  • The recent overturning of the Roe v Wade decision by the US Supreme Court and what it means for women in the States and across the world. 

Sareta and Chioma love Ilona’s heart and her compassion. Ilona’s advice to those wanting to rebrand themselves is that patience is key and nothing is a failure, because we are all informed by our experiences and those experiences, even if we don’t realise it at the time, help to take us to the next level. 

More From Our Guest

“It’s like being in a room with Jack Black and Robin Williams and Jim Carrey doing their standup all at once. It’s chaotic, frenetic and hilarious. It’s life with three people who think outside the box, all the time because very often they have forgotten the box or lost the box or just found another box much more interesting. And it has made me – a neurotypical, type-A rule-follower, squarely-in-the-box operator, former spelling bee champion and perpetual list-maker – into a much more fluid person and creative thinker, willing to let go of my rigid routines. My family have shown me the beauty and freedom of thinking differently.

My older son has been diagnosed with dyslexia and some attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) behaviours that make focusing a challenge. My younger son has recently been referred for ADHD assessment and has had a diagnostic Qb test pointing toward its likelihood. There will be an evaluation and occupational therapy when regular schooling resumes. But it is clear he has difficulty focusing, and when we review the checklist of symptoms, they all feel very familiar. ADHD and dyslexia often coexist in a person’s learning profile, and they are genetic. When asked if anyone else in the family has them, I point at the guy in the top hat, who is also the smartest person I have met. As with many people our age, however, any issues my husband had as a child weren’t diagnosed.

In the UK, it’s estimated that 2-5% of children have ADHD. The prevalence among adults is 3-4%, but the majority of cases are undiagnosed.” – Ilona Bannister

Ilona’s books, When I Ran Away, and Little Prisons, can be found in all good bookstores.

Mrs Death Misses Death: Salena Godden

“Mrs Death tells her intoxicating story in this life-affirming fire-starter of a novel

Mrs Death has had enough. She is exhausted from spending eternity doing her job and now she seeks someone to unburden her conscience. Wolf Willeford, a troubled young writer, is well acquainted with death, but until now hadn’t met Death in person – a black, working-class woman who shape-shifts and does her work unseen.

Enthralled by her stories, Wolf becomes Mrs Death’s scribe and begins to write her memoirs. Using their desk as a vessel and conduit, Wolf travels across time and place with Mrs Death to witness deaths of past and present and discuss what the future holds for humanity. As the two reflect on the losses they have experienced – or, in the case of Mrs Death, facilitated – their friendship grows into a surprising affirmation of hope, resilience and love. All the while, despite her world-weariness, Death must continue to hold humans’ fates in her hands, appearing in our lives when we least expect her…”

Sareta & Cee Catch Up

This week on Women Who Rebrand, it’s bring your partner to work day! The ladies find out if Sareta really knows what her husband actually does at work!

They talk to Danny Fontaine, Creative Director at IBM by day and Pitch Guy by…erm, outside the hours of 9-5. Danny is a storyteller – he creates compelling stories that build emotional connections with an audience to sell products and services.

Through the use of psychology, Danny explains that pitching is the same whether it’s done by a large corporation for millions of pounds worth of business or an individual who is touting themselves as qualified to sit on a panel discussion with a bunch of Instagram influencers.

Topics discussed during this episode:

  • Why storytelling is so crucial when developing a pitch.
  • How to create an emotional connection with your audience.
  • The importance of injecting your personality into your pitch.
  • Be one step ahead of your audience and tell people what they want to hear.
  • How to talk about the money without underselling yourself and your product.
  • Knowing your value and walking away.

This threesome (in the most platonic sense) talks about championing women in the workplace and recruiting a diverse workforce. They share opinions and experiences around tokenism, quotas and ways to build a genuinely diverse candidate pool from which the best-qualified person gets the job.

Danny’s advice? Tell stories by delivering emotion first and information second. Listen to the episode to discover how creating the perfect pitch and Toy Story are connected.

To Sell is Human: The Surprising Truth About Persuading, Convincing, and Influencing Others By Dan Pink

“Excellent . . . radical, surprising, and undeniably true” – Harvard Business Review.

Parents sell their kids on going to bed. Spouses sell their partners on mowing the lawn. We sell our bosses on giving us more money and more time off. And in astonishing numbers we go online to sell ourselves on Facebook, Twitter and Match.com profiles.

Relying on science, analysis and his trademark clarity of thought, Pink shows that sales isn’t what it used to be. Then he provides a set of tools, tips, and exercises for succeeding on this new terrain – including six new ways to pitch your idea, three ways to understand another’s perspective, five frames that can make your message clearer, and much more.

In this week’s episode, Sareta and Chioma talk to fashion creative, menopause aficionado and general carefree, Black woman Karen Arthur. 

You may know Karen through her podcast Menopause Whilst Black. You could have seen her campaigning alongside Davina McCall, Mariella Frostrup and Lisa Snowdon outside the Houses of Parliament. Perhaps you’ve seen her modelling for Specsavers on giant billboards? Either way, you’ll know even more about Karen after this episode of Women Who Rebrand.

Karen’s recent experience of transitioning from peri to post-menopause has enabled her to live her best life, let go of her scarcity mindset and recognise what she brings to the table. It has helped her realise that “no is a complete sentence”. Rather than being the worst time of her life, it has empowered her, and Chioma and Sareta love it! Dare they say, they may even be a little bit excited to begin their own menopause journeys… 

Topics discussed during this episode: 

  • Becoming a grandmother and letting go. 
  • The different stages of menopause. 
  • The various ways menopause can manifest and the fact that there is no universal experience. 
  • The lack of research into menopause and what this means for those who go through it. 
  • The health and medical inequalities that impact Black people going through menopause. 
  • Supporting yourself through menopause, medically, physically and emotionally. 
  • Giving ‘zero fux’ after menopause. 
  • Menopause activism. 
  • The recent trend of becoming “menopause-friendly” employers.

Menopause Whilst Black host - Karen Arthur

The Stages of Menopause

  • Menopause is when your periods stop due to a depletion of specific hormones such as estrogen and testosterone.
  • This usually happens between the ages of 45 and 55; however, it can occur sooner.
  • It can happen earlier for reasons such as surgery to remove the ovaries (oophorectomy) or the uterus (hysterectomy), cancer treatments like chemotherapy, or a genetic reason.
  • Perimenopause is when you have symptoms before your periods have stopped. You reach menopause when you have not had a period for 12 months.
  • Menopause and perimenopause can cause symptoms like anxiety, mood swings, brain fog, hot flushes and irregular periods.
  • These symptoms can start years before your periods stop and carry on afterwards.

Sareta & Cee Catch Up

This week, Sareta and Chioma speak to *deep breath* Arab-descended, Sicily-born, Belgium-raised, London-living (via Los Angeles), Award-Winning Designer, Creative Director, Fashion Stylist and Magazine Editor-In-Chief – Francesca Marotta. A proud, indigenous woman of the world, Francesca personifies passion.

Since falling in love with the sewing machine as a very young girl, Francesca has expressed herself through fashion. Self-employed from 18, her work has been published in magazines on every continent (apart from the North Pole!)

A civil rights activist from the age of 9, Francesca’s experiences of discrimination have framed her worldview and led to her keeping social justice and professional integrity at the forefront of her ethos.

Topics discussed during this episode:

  • White privilege.
  • Diversity, inclusion and representation in fashion.
  • The pressures on women, especially mothers and female carers, in the male-dominated fashion industry.
  • ‘Fashion as art’ and not just clothing.
  • ‘Fashion as a form of modern-day slavery.
  • Fame & empire-building vs integrity.
  • Investing in yourself.

FRANCESCA MAROTTA – Award-Winning Designer, Creative Director, Fashion Stylist and Magazine Editor-In-Chief

More From Our Guest

“The New Enfant Terrible of Fashion Entrepreneurship” – A creator to the end of her fingertips

Sicilian-born Francesca says her roots play a significant part in how she envisions and creates her Business Ventures. She embraces and embodies all of her ancestries as a Sicilian, American Indian, Mediterranean, North African, East African, Middle Eastern, and Ashkenazi Jew.

Her taste for designing, creating a concept and couture has been with her since the tender age of four. By ten, she started designing and sewing outfits for her little sister’s dolls. Her designs had an edge to them, a different touch to them.

Up From Slavery by Booker T. Washington. The author is one of Francesca’s ultimate civil rights and entrepreneurship heroes.
Francesca started work as a civil rights activist aged 9. She had a school teacher who would the class write to Amnesty International every Friday, which led to Francesca organising my first anti-racism march aged 12.

Sareta & Cee Catch Up

Sareta and Chioma welcome social media and brand manager, Jessica Deeker. Jessica is currently an expat based in the Caribbean. “What’s the difference between an expat and an immigrant?” the ladies asked- Well, an expat temporarily resides in a country outside of their place of birth to work. An immigrant lives in the country permanently. 

Although Chioma discusses how she probably wouldn’t work abroad due to missing home comforts, including a cuppa, Sareta is up for sunnier climates. Have any of you thought about a new life abroad?

Jessica Deeker is a British social media and brand manager who works in Grenada creating content in the sun! By definition, she’s an expat, and today, we’ll be discussing what it’s like to have your dream job in a dreamy location.

Grenada is a small island country of volcanic origin in the eastern Caribbean. It lies just 160 kilometres north of Venezuela. Grenada has a ridge of mountains that run from north to south with steep valleys. It also features large areas of tropical rainforest.

“Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean, is a hidden gem with unspoiled beauty offering a lifestyle so pure and authentic that you will feel instantly renewed. Famed for its aromatic spices and organic chocolate, the tri-island destination of Grenada, Carriacou, and Petite Martinique is located in the eastern Caribbean just south of Barbados. The Pure Grenada experience beckons visitors to its 40 white sandy beaches including the world-famous Grand Anse Beach, 15 breathtaking waterfalls, 5 chocolate factories, 3 rum distilleries, and more than 30 unforgettable dive sites, including the largest shipwreck in the Caribbean ‘Bianca C’ and the World’s First Underwater Sculpture Park. The World Travel & Tourism Council “Safe Travels” approved destination is committed to protecting your health and safety while allowing you to tailor a beyond-the-ordinary Pure Grenada experience, Just-For-you.” – Pure Grenada

The climate of Grenada is tropical, which means that between January and May you can expect a lot of rain. The rest of the year is hot and dry with temperatures reaching 30°C. Although Grenada is a beautiful country to consider, be aware that the island is susceptible to hurricanes.

Music is a big part of Grenada’s culture, and calypso is the most popular genre, as well as reggae, dancehall, and parang. All of these genres can be heard during their yearly carnival.  

Grenada can be described as the epitome of a Caribbean island and many expats’ dream destination. It has beautiful beaches, waterfalls, and exotic wildlife. Afternoons can be spent in the markets, shopping for spices and fish, and evenings can be enjoyed while sipping the locally-made rum.

More From Our Guest

A Brand Manager is a professional responsible for ensuring that the company’s products, services, and product lines resonate with current or potential customers. In addition, they monitor marketing trends and keep an eye on competitive companies in the marketplace to stay ahead of the competition.

A Social Media Manager is responsible for overseeing a company’s interactions with the public by implementing social media platforms’ content strategies. Their duties include analysing engagement data, identifying trends in customer interactions and planning digital campaigns to build community online.

Small businesses will often employ a singular person to undertake both roles. However, as social media platforms have grown in recent years, most business owners realise the need for small marketing teams. Content creation doesn’t stop at writing; it includes photography, videography, and a creative vision. Jessica explained that she has grown a team to ensure she stays on top when it comes to delivering.

Diary of A CEO podcast – “A few years ago I was a broke, university dropout, living in one of the worst parts of the country, alone, with nothing but a laptop & a dream. Fast forward a few years, I’m the 29-year-old ex CEO of one of the UK’s fastest-growing companies. That company is called Social Chain. My world is intense, sometimes crazy, always challenging and always unpredictable. This podcast is simple, every week I’m going to share insights with you from guests with different backgrounds, experiences and learnings. I want to give you a look into what it’s like behind the scenes, being an entrepreneur, the deep, dark thoughts that nobody else will share with you and anything else that’s playing on my mind. This is not scripted and I don’t have questions I just see where the conversation takes me. This is the diary of a CEO, I’m Steven Bartlett. I hope nobody is listening, but if you are… keep this to yourself.” – Steven Bartlett.

Sareta & Cee Catch Up

Sareta and Chioma welcome breast cancer advocate and survivor Carly Moosah. Before joining the studio, the hosts briefly discuss how cancer has affected people in their lives and how important it is to get checked if you have any signs or symptoms of the disease.

This weeks guest

Life After Breast Cancer Carly Moosah

Carley Moosah is the co-founder of KeepEmQuiet. Fun packs aimed at children to keep them entertained during periods of travel, rainy days, & weddings. She is a breast cancer advocate who lost her mother to breast cancer a decade before Carly herself was diagnosed with the disease at age 37. She joins us today to tell us about her incredible journey, surviving cancer and what she plans to do next.

Carly’s intentions in sharing her story have been to spread awareness about breast cancer and get people to check their boobs and know what to look for.

Before her diagnosis, the message was loud and clear…early detection is vital. Carly was living proof that early detection is imperative; she had stage 2, grade 3, triple-negative Breast Cancer with a BRCA1 gene mutation. She faced an aggressive treatment plan and radical surgery due to the gene; however, things were positive. Due to some chunky painful lymph nodes discovered on a chemo ward with her sister, Carly immediately booked to see her GP. Within a week, she had a diagnosis, her early detection likely saved her life.

Initially, Carly went into warrior mode, as her therapist put it. She shed very few tears but had a solid positive mental attitude. Although Carly didn’t want people to feel sorry for her, there were times when sharing her vulnerable moments was harder. Honouring authenticity, she opened herself up to sharing the highs and lows of her breast cancer journey and this chapter of her life. Carly had to admit that the lows were par the course. Some moments were the highest highs and lowest lows. Some days she felt like she had nothing to give, riddled with fatigue, chemo fog & relentless negativity. Those were the hard days when she thought that perhaps sharing her journey may hinder the help she wanted to give; the realities of cancer can be very, very ugly.

More From Our Guest

“When my husband and I launched our business, KeepEmQuiet.com, in 2016, I went from a private Instagram to a public one to connect, network and help spread the word about our new venture in what was at the time was a mainly female blogging space. As time went on, I started sharing more and more about myself personally. About my grief on losing my Mum to breast cancer at 27. About mental illness, with a family history of depression, bipolar, and suicide attempts. About my eating disorder in my teens and body issues. I realised that connecting with people on this deeper level and sharing my story felt right; even if it helped just one person, it was worth it to be vulnerable and honest. I have always found writing a cathartic, therapeutic experience.

In October 2019, I stripped to a pink bra to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, having lost my beautiful Mum to the disease, just as she lost hers, whom I never met. One month later, aged 37, I received a diagnosis myself. For 6 months, I had not mentioned my older sister’s Ovarian cancer diagnosis online. It was not my story to tell, and so I had lived and breathed cancer for 6 months whilst my Instagram told a different story. And now, here I was, with my own diagnosis. Do I silently just go quiet and knuckle down with treatment or invite others along for the maddest ride of my life? For over a week, my family and I got our heads around the diagnosis. I told friends. I had tests. And we celebrated our baby girl turning 4 in amongst the agonising upheaval of all that lay ahead. And then, on Sunday evening, I wrote the words “I have breast cancer” on Instagram, and clicked ‘share’. The support and outpouring of love were immediately overwhelming and filled me with strength.

The highest points throughout sharing my cancer diaries have been the messages I received. People who have checked out pains and lumps that they had previously ignored and had the incredible relief to find out that they are benign. Those messages make the sharing so, so worth it. By sharing my experiences, I have helped others going through their own cancer journeys. It’s true what they say, a problem shared is a problem halved. This brings me to the point that if you have gotten this far, please do me one favour and check your boobs immediately. Don’t be scared; get to know your body, and get to the GP if you have any concerns. I felt like I was wasting everyone’s time waiting to have my ultrasound. Please know that checking your health is NEVER wasting anyone’s time. Doctors get a lot more joy from telling you that you have nothing than telling you something. Please CHECK YOUR BOOBS.

A cancer diagnosis flips your world in an instant. It gives you a perspective on all you want your life to be if you can get to the other side. I’m nearing that side now, and I’m so driven to live to my fullest, my healthiest, my best me. I have never ever been more convinced that all that truly matters is that we have our health and our loved ones. This is the fundamental basis of happiness, and having cancer has made me reflect on all the beauty that love and health can allow. ” – Carly Moosah.

Le’Nise tells the ladies about the journey from her successful but demanding, sexy career in marketing and advertising to becoming a mother and deciding to do things on her terms. She retrained as a nutritionist and yoga instructor to build a career that could work around her family, leading to everything she is doing today.

Le’Nise is the host of the Period Story podcast. Each episode features a guest who recollects and shares the memory of their first period. Topics include how they learned about periods and menstrual health, what they know now that they wish they knew back then and everything in between.

This book is a practical guide that helps women change the way they look at their period and menstrual cycle to harness the power of the fifth vital sign finally.

Untitled. A poem by the great poet Lucille Clifton

some dreams hang in the air
like smoke. some dreams
get all in your clothes and
be wearing them more than you do and
you be half the time trying to
hold them and half the time
trying to wave them away.
their smell be all over you and
they get to your eyes and
you cry. the fire be gone
and the wood but some dreams
hang in the air like smoke
touching everything.
