@ Honest Mum

Vicki Psarias is a multi-award winning blogger, vlogger and filmmaker who set up lifestyle and parenting site, Honest Mum® (honestmum.com) in 2010 whilst on maternity leave. The blog and its surrounding channels now reach 3 million people a month on average, with peak months reaching highs of 30 million.

Having suffered a traumatic birth with her first child, her blog gave her a platform and purpose helping her rediscover her voice and ultimately recover.

Just 4 weeks after launching her blog in 2010, Vicki became a Finalist in the Fresh Voice category at the BritMums’ Brilliance in Blogging Awards (the BiBs). In 2016, Vicki won the Best Social Media award and Outstanding accolades at the BiBs.

Vicki’s mission has always been to help other parents seize the digital space to create fulfilling, flexible and empowering jobs, and she’s passionate about sharing body-positive content. Her #Proudinmybikini campaign went viral in 2015.

Vicki is an ambassador for Herbal Essences UK; additional clients include Virgin EMI, Philips, Land Rover, Sainsbury’s, M&S, Robinsons and Boots, amongst others. She’s also worked with Jamie Oliver, James Martin, Antonio Carluccio and Raymond Blanc. Last year she became the first blogger and vlogger in the UK to be signed to an airline, in a groundbreaking collaboration with the multi-award winning Jet2.com and Jet2holidays.

Vicki’s debut non-fiction book #Mumboss®, a manifesto for surviving and thriving at work and at home, is out in March 2018 in time for Mothers’ Day.
