Hello, it's 2016

Happy New Year Bellas! We hope you’ve taken some time to switch off and enjoy yourselves. January is always a time for reflection and introspection and we have some great events to put some of your resolutions into action! That being said, we’re not big fans of drastic changes as you’re all pretty awesome to start with! We prefer small tweaks and improved awareness of what we really want to be and achieve.

For Team Bella, 2016 means being more organised and learning to plan and strategise a bit better. We have...


Bella's First Birthday

Today, our labour of love turned one. We’re so grateful to everyone who has supported us along the way. We can’t believe how much progress we’ve made. Shaleena and I actually had no clue what we were doing when we first started the business. We arrived at our first factory visit with no patterns, no samples and no fabric and were quickly shown the door…but eventually we got there and we’re so proud of what Bella has become.

Fellow startups or anyone who’s thinking about taking the plunge, please get in touch! We...


'Run Like a Girl' Running Club

Last night we had our last running club of the year. We’ve only been organising our runs since September but they’ve been a lot of fun so far! Christmas is just around the corner and we wanted to add some festivity to our 5k so we picked Somerset House as our starting point. It’s my absolute favourite London landmark. It has an ice rink in winter, an outdoor cinema during the summer and of course hosts London Fashion Week.

Our amazing ambassador, Carly, from Project Hot Bitch always leads our runs....


'Give it Another Go' Ballet Class

On Saturday, we hosted our first event as part of our ‘Give it Another Go’ campaign. We’ve been overwhelmed by the responses we’ve received from women who’ve identified with our story of not being the ‘sporty girl’ at school, so we decided to start a campaign to address this. It’s so sad to hear people say they can’t do things. We call can. Maybe we wont be the fastest, strongest or most flexible, but we can still run that 10k, hold that yoga pose and handle any crazy workout that comes our way...


The 2015 PEA Awards

We’re so excited to announce that we’re the winners of the 2015 PEA Awards in the Shopping category for promoting conscious consumerism! It’s our first ever award! And it means so much to us to receive some recognition for what we’re trying to achieve with Bella Kinesis.

We attended the awards ceremony in Brighton in October and came home with our lovely prize, which came in the form of an actual brick! It was a bit cumbersome to carry it back to London on the train but we did so with pride. We met so...
