About Anita Kaushal

Anita Kaushal is the co-founder of Mauli Rituals; a British brand of luxe skin and bodycare products, inspired by her Indian, Ayurvedic heritage. Born and raised in West London, Anita grew up surrounded by the intricate fabrics and artefacts her father imported from Rajasthan.

After a successful career in sales for a perfume brand, Anita decided to follow her passion and founded a multi-channel retail of handmade lifestyle products made by local artisans and internationally acclaimed designers. Her mix of old, new, ancient and modern also applied to her writing and art-directing style, as in motherhood, she went on to conceive best selling books for Thames & Hudson and then launch her Creative Consultancy.

A devastating and life-changing incident in 2012 gave Anita the impetus to launch a fund-raising initiative £1m for charities that support women and children. This took her career full circle with the launch of Mauli. The common thread in all her projects has been to share products and ideas that make life more beautiful on both a physical and emotional level.

Mauli launched in late 2014 and is available through some of the world’s premier retailers including Space NK, Net-A-Porter, Liberty, The Conran Store and London’s Bulgari Spa.

About Natasha Corrett

Natasha Corrett is one of the UK’s top vegetarian chefs. She founded Honestly Healthy on the back of her own struggles with yo-yo diets, up and down weight gain and digestion issues. In 2010 a severe back injury led Natasha to discover the alkaline way of living that has changed her life and motivated her to inspire others.

Her new lifestyle approach led Natasha to organise health and wellness retreats. When one of the chefs didn’t show, Natasha had to cook and feed her guests nutritious meals. Following this retreat Honestly Healthy came to life in 2010 in her own kitchen, where she cooked over 50 alkaline meals a day and personally delivered them to offices and homes around London. As the company grew organically and through word of mouth, she was invited to present her food to Selfridges to launch the brand. Thousands have now followed her lead, including celebrity fans Victoria Beckham, Robbie Williams, Lily Allen, Fearne Cotton, Millie Mackintosh and Jessie Ware.

Natasha has authored three best selling cookbooks in the last 4 years, launching her fourth book in May 2016 titled Honestly Healthy in a Hurry.

Most recently, in true entrepreneur style, Natasha has launched the Honestly Healthy Market Place to help support small business owners who share the same ethos at Honestly Healthy.
