Mimi Shodeinde

Describe yourself in 5 words.

Assertive. Driven. Fun. Complete Weirdo. Grateful.

What do you do? Like professionally? 

I run my own furniture and Interior Architecture Studio in London called Miminat, I’m also an artist and, as of recently, Founder and Creative Director of a non-profit 0rganization, SHE.creates.

I try to stay as busy as possible, everyone who knows me, knows I can’t stand doing nothing with my time.

How do you achieve a glow getter lifestyle? In terms of wellness practices, inner beauty, mantras, spirituality, career projections etc. 

Well, I try eating as healthily as I possibly can. I’m obsessed with juicing; my Nutri bullet is my best friend. I love doing early morning yoga or pilates, (stretch it alllll out before I start my day).

Art & painting are my medicine; I love spending evenings alone painting with my Sound Cloud playlist playing.

I also find my inner glow comes from being extremely content with my life and believing things can only get better. I really don’t have time for bullshit or any negativity. I’m alive, I’m healthy, I have great friends and family, my career is my passion, What more can one ask for in life? I thank God every second.

What brands/people/places in Lagos help you achieve this glow?

My girlfriends are truly my backbone, it can get incredibly stressful sometimes starting and running your own thing, also juggling all the projects I have going on. They really help me get my mind off things, glass of wine, some good olives, laughter, and I’m good!

Brands – I can’t live without my Aesop Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque. Those who know me, know I’m obsessed with skincare, so this is my go to product when I need a little bit of a glow.
