About Candice Brathwaite
Candice Brathwaite started blogging in 2016 to tell her own story of motherhood. She was keen to show that young black families were not just surviving but thriving. Now with over 250k followers on Instagram, it is clear that Candice’s straight-talking, original content has really struck a chord with fans and brands alike.
Candice Brathwaite is a self-confessed beauty and fashion obsessive and now has a regular style segment on Lorraine on ITV. She has become renowned for gently encouraging people to be bolder about embracing colour in their wardrobes.
Candice is a Contributing Editor to Grazia and regularly appears on national radio and television news channels, often to talk about maternal mortality rates for black women in Britain.
Her debut book I Am Not Your Baby Mother – about being a black British mum – was published in May 2020 by Quercus and made the Sunday Times Bestseller list. Following this, Candice has released two further books, including Sista Sister, her much anticipated second book about all the things she wishes she’d been told when she was young, and ‘Cuts Both Ways’ a YA fiction love story about race, class and gender.
