Payal Kadakia: ‘We need more diversity on the other side of the table’


Female tech founder Payal Kadakia is next in our Women Who Win series, giving us some insight into how tough you have to be to hack it at the top…

You may not have heard of Payal Kadakia just yet, but you’ll certainly know her brainchild, ClassPass, with the fitness membership app giving access to the most on-trend classes across the globe, from boxing to barre.

In the UK alone, there are classes across London, Bristol, Brighton, Edinburgh and Manchester, and it’s only spreading.

‘People always think I’m this huge fitness person,’ the ClassPass founder explained to our Junior News Editor Jenny Proudfoot over avocado toast. ‘But, I started this company because I am scared of fitness. I didn’t even own sneakers until I was in my twenties. I was not an athlete by any means. I hated gym class. No one wanted me on their team.’

But Payal found a gap in the market due to her own need, quitting her corporate job to set up her own company from scratch in Starbucks.

‘My own product has helped me feel so strong,’ she explained. ‘I feel really confident now walking into any class, and through ClassPass, we’ve made it really fun and made everyone feel like they can do that too.’

But starting a business from scratch doesn’t come without its difficulties, something Payal wouldn’t let stop her on her mission.

‘Failure for any company is running out of capital. That’s the only failure that actually happens – when you cannot pay your bills and pay people working for you,’ she explained. ‘That’s when you have a shutdown. But until that moment, everything is fair game. And you need to make as many hard decisions as you can.’

Our Women Who Win interview series celebrates strong and inspirational female trailblazers, shaping the future for us all, and Payal Kadakia and her refusal to let anyone or anything stand in her way is that in a nutshell.

Jenny Proudfoot sat down with Payal to find out how tough you have to be to survive as a female founder nowadays and why we shouldn’t be afraid of making mistakes…

What is the boldest thing you’ve ever done?

Quitting my job. That is one of the scariest things anyone can do because you’re throwing security out of the door. I always remember that day. I don’t think I realised how bold I was being at the time because you almost feel a little defeated – you’re quitting. But I was in a job where my dreams weren’t there and there was no one I aspired to be or for my company to become. The way people reacted to my quitting changed my perception. I earned a tonne of respect from all these people who were like ten years older than me because I made a really bold decision in my life. The tables had flipped and then I realised, that was the way to lead life.

What is the best advice anyone’s ever given you?

It was around the time I started building my company, from one of my earliest advisors. I was going to potentially take a job at Spotify because it was scary not having an income, and she told me, ‘If you’re not going to bet on yourself, how is anyone else going to?’. It was an eye-opening moment for me and I didn’t take any other job and focused on ClassPass from that date forward.

What has been your proudest moment?

When my parents first saw my office. We moved into our big office in New York in 2016, and while it was five years into the journey, I think my parents were wondering ‘What is my daughter doing? Does she have a real job?’, until then. You have to remember, my parents came to America with nothing, and while they believed in me and were really sweet, when they saw my office, that was a really important moment for them to be like, ‘Wow, this is your office and you employ all these people’. But really, I feel like every single time someone hits ‘book’ it makes me proud – especially after being on this journey for eight years. Obviously now we’re in the millions of reservations, but because I remember fighting for every one, I find it such a privilege.

Have you ever felt discriminated against as a female founder?

I can’t think of a particular moment, but I do remember in the early stages one of the hardest things was selling the product. I was pitching to a predominantly female-specific market but most of the people around the table that I was selling to were men. It just made it harder to raise money – that’s the reality of it. We need more diversity on the other side of the table and that’s really what it comes down to. I developed a really strong armour against gender discrimination in my youth and now I won’t let anyone doubt me. Sadly we do have misconceptions in the world – it happens everywhere. I just need to show them that even though I’m different, I can be exceptional at what I do. We need more role models in the world to make people look and change their minds.

How can we all ask for more?

Before you walk into any meeting or have that conversation, you need to convince yourself that you deserve it. Whether that comes down to writing out all the reasons why you deserve it or pumping yourself up, you have to believe it – that’s what it comes down to. If you walk into any room being like, ‘I’m going to do this and it’s mine’, it’s not a question and it’s not up to anyone else. Let it be already done.

What is your mantra?

There’s a quote by Robert Sherman that I live by which is, ‘Your greatest life is on the other side of your greatest fear’. I live by that all the time.

What will you never compromise on?

My time. I think time is the most important thing we have. I try not to feel guilty about how I spend my time because that, to me, is a compromise. If I want to go and do something, whether that be going to class or dance or whatever, I give myself the permission to make sure I do that. I think if you can figure out how you work and how you spend your time efficiently, it’s the best way to move forward in your life.

How do you achieve the right work-personal life balance?

You can’t. I mean honestly, in the earliest days, I didn’t. I was very okay with that. I learned to not feel guilty about it. I missed people’s weddings, I missed friends’ things, I was MIA for a while. I think all my friends knew I had this dream of something I wanted to build. I am a really mission-oriented person. Nothing over-rides mission to me. I truly believe people in your life should understand that.

What has held you back?

Sadly, the buck stops with you. I don’t mean this in any bad way, but it’s when you get stuck in your own thoughts and when you doubt yourself that stops you progressing. The world doesn’t want to doubt people. The world wants to root for you. I think it’s about being able to root for yourself as well. We all have moments when we get stuck in our heads and think, ‘Oh I don’t think I can do that’, but I’ve learned how to work my way out of that and find the right people in my life to help move forward.

What is your superpower?

My superpower is my ability to focus. Even when I was younger, I could be in the middle of a party and read a book.  And now, when I have something to solve or something to do, I just know how to do it really quickly. It’s intense and weaves into everything I do.

What has been your biggest mistake?

I really don’t believe in mistakes and I’m saying that truthfully. I believe that all failures are points that take you to the next step in your life. So I don’t really dwell too much on them – I rationalise each moment whether it was a down moment or an up moment, it’s a part of what will happen next.

What’s your typical day?

There’s no such thing as ‘typical’ in the life of an entrepreneur. I think it really comes down to knowing what hard decisions you need to make every single day and prioritising your time. In fact, I think that once you get into a typical routine, it’s actually the best way to fail. It means you’re too comfortable. I think as a leader you have to constantly be putting yourself in a new atmosphere and a new challenge which means it’s never going to be typical.

What has inspired you?

Growing up in America I sadly got made fun of a lot for being Indian, but it was a defining moment in my life. The hard thing was that I loved my culture – I have always had a love of dance and movement and all of my dancing is from the history of my ancestors. I remember starting to hide my culture from my friends – I felt like I was living two lives. And at some point, that adversity is what inspired my first company – a dance company. I thought, ‘I’m doing something so beautiful – maybe I can use that as a vehicle to show people what my culture is all about’.

How do you psych yourself up?

I love going to a class or running. To me, that is like meditation in a way. We’re around our phones and technology all the time, so I need moments when I’m away from that. It doesn’t even mean being silent but movement just helps me think better and helps my creativity. I just feel strong.

How do you celebrate success?

Celebrating with the people that made it happen. The best things in the world have never happened because of one person – they happened because of a group of people – so I think it comes down to saying thank you. But success to me isn’t an endpoint, and I say that in the sense that I don’t want to ever be done. To me, success is having another dream. And I never want to be done on that journey.

What is one change you would like to see for women?

I think everything I have learned in my journey comes down to being confident in who I am. And so that is what I would like to see for women, for men, for anyone in the world – to have that confidence and remember it’s all your choice – the environment you hang out in, the career you have, the people you work with, the work you do – it’s all your choice. And the more you know that, the more you hold your cards on what you can become. It’s not up to anyone else.

ClassPass is the leading online fitness membership and is available in five major cities across the UK, including London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol and Brighton.

Cult beauty products that continue to sell out in record time

Cult beauty products that continue to sell out in record time


cult beauty products

There are some beauty products that stand the test of time, that continue to sell incredibly well year after year, with no signs of stopping. They’re the cult beauty products that are passed down through generations, from your grandmother to your mother and onwards, like the best moisturiser you’ve ever used, a hair mask that goes that extra mile or a serum so good you recommend it to everyone you meet. Alexia Inge even started a company, Cult Beauty, based on this very idea. Inge says a cult beauty product must elicit squeals of delight, ‘and exceed all our expectations (and often shift the goalposts altogether). These are the products you will. not. be. parted from – the jars you dutifully decant, the tubes you scissor open and the bottles your store upside down to ensure you don’t waste a single drop. Firm fixtures of make up artists’ kits, you’ll find these formulas jealously guarded backstage at fashion weeks and photoshoots, and also in the bathrooms of the AAA-List who choose these products for love (not money). Staggeringly efficacious, these do ‘what they say on the tin’ and then some… the only thing they will not do is disappoint.’

What Harry actually said to Meghan in viral clip of him ‘telling her off’

What Harry actually said to Meghan in viral clip of him ‘telling her off’

Earlier this month the Queen celebrated her birthday with the annual Trooping the Colour parade, and all eyes were on the royal family. Prince Louis debuted his royal wave, and Kate Middleton gave a nod to her wedding day with her choice of outfit.

Many noticed that baby Archie didn’t attend, but were thrilled that Meghan Markle showed up despite being on maternity leave. She arrived with Prince Harry, Kate and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, and while it was initially reported that Meghan didn’t make a balcony appearance on the day, she did in fact stand among the royals but was simply nearer to the back and not centre stage (for this reason).

But fans of the Duchess of Sussex were less pleased when they saw a now-viral video of Harry ‘telling her off’ as they stood on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.

In a clip shared on Twitter, one fan wrote: ‘Prince harry told her “turn around. now” and meghan looks so sad… brb imma cry.’

The clip shows Meghan turning to her husband, with him responding, before she turns to him a second time and she promptly makes a point of facing forward.

But a lip reader has deciphered what the Duke of Sussex actually said to his wife, and it might not be as harsh as the internet is making out.

According to the expert, Tina Lannin, he wasn’t scolding Meghan. She told The Sun that she believes Harry says: ‘No he hasn’t. Oh fine. Turn around.’

This happens just as the National Anthem begins to play, so Harry may have been reminding Meghan that she needed to stand to attention.

We’re not convinced that Harry was being stern with his wife – it’s more likely that he told her to turn around to follow royal protocol.

What do you think?

This Zara headband sold out within hours (but it’s coming back in stock)


If Gossip Girl has taught us any life lessons (and it has, trust me), it’s that headbands are always a good idea. This season, the catwalk agrees, as the staple hair accessory makes a major comeback.

But if you haven’t been able to get your hands on Prada’s or Gucci’s iconic headpieces, fret on, Zara has come to the rescue yet again.

The high street fave last week served up what could only be described as perfection in a band: a rhinestone-encrusted beauty that basically makes you look like you’re wearing a magical halo.

It naturally went down a treat, selling out in less than a day, sad news for those who weren’t quite as click-happy.

Shop now: LIMITED EDITION RHINESTONE HEADBAND for £17.99 from ZARA

However, my sources at Zara tell me more stock will be coming soon, and judging by the store checker, there are still plenty available in store, so your best bet at the moment is to check your local.

Wear it with a pretty floral slip dress if you’re feeling extra, or just an oversized linen suit if you’re not.

Today marks the first ever Plastic Free Beauty Day – here’s what you need to know


plastic free beauty day

Did you know there’s no such thing as ‘good plastic’? Every bit of plastic that’s ever made, still exists now; reclaimed plastic, recycled plastic, recyclable plastic can all end up in landfill or our oceans.

The UN predicts that by 2050 our oceans will contain more plastic than fish, and some 99% of seabirds will have ingested plastic, something they’re calling a ‘planetary crisis’.

That’s where Plastic Free Beauty Day Comes in.

plastic free beauty day

Launched by We Are Paradoxx founder Yolanda Cooper, the brand are taking the streets of London today to educate members of the public on the myths surrounding recycled plastics.

Giant lipstick-shaped recycling bins will be dotted around the city, allowing consumers to drop off their empty beauty products to then be properly recycled. You can read more on the Plastic Free Beauty Day website, and the most common plastic myths, below.

WWW.PLASTICFREEBEAUTY.ORG

Read the Marie Claire guide on how to recycle beauty products properly next.

Here’s to all of us making an effort to cut down on our plastic consumption going forwards.

John Lewis launches a new recycling scheme for your beauty products

John Lewis launches a new recycling scheme for your beauty products


Excellent news

These days there are many ways that you can try and make your beauty routine more sustainable. We can opt for products that are conscious of their packaging to reduce plastic waste, we can choose products that are actually completely plastic-free (hello, Lush refillable lipsticks) or purchase items that donate a portion of their profits to environmental causes, such as this palm oil-free soap that saves endangered Orangutans.

But do you recycle beauty products? It’s also an important step in the move to reduce waste and single-use plastic, but not many people know exactly what to do with their empty bottles, pots and jars (which is why we put together a very helpful cheat sheet).

Luckily, some big brands are also stepping in to help you recycle beauty products. The Body Shop have brought back their instore recycling scheme, and it seems that department store John Lewis are following suit by offering a service to encourage their customers to recycle their empties.

They’re teaming up with TerraCycle for the BeautyCycle scheme. Once the packaging has been picked up from the stores, TerraCycle will separate the metal, fibre and plastic products to be recycled or composted.

John Lewis senior sustainability manager Martyn White said: ‘Our customers are becoming more mindful about what they buy and what happens to products once they’ve reached the end of their first life.

‘Beauty products are notoriously hard to recycle which can make it hard for customers to know what to do with them, which often means they end up being thrown in the bin. One of our key aims is to make ‘being sustainable’ as easy as possible for customers, so it doesn’t have to be a difficult choice.

‘The BeautyCycle trial will help us to do just that, enabling customers to shop and enjoy beauty products in a more sustainable way, ensuring the materials are re-used in the best way possible.’

If you’re a loyalty member you’ll also get a £5 voucher to spend on beauty products in store. The only empties you won’t be able to drop off are perfume bottles, nail varnish and aerosol cans.

The trial run will launch in 36 stores for one month and if it’s successful, they’ll expand the initiative.

Fingers crossed.

This Met Gala dress is now on sale and it’s cheaper than you think

This Met Gala dress is now on sale and it’s cheaper than you think


Last month’s Met Gala red carpet was wonderfully camp, thanks in no small part to Lady Gaga’s gazillion different outfits: she started off in a hot pink Brandon Maxwell dress and finished in her underwear.

Another dress that stood out was the one model and influencer Sofia Sanchez de Betak wore. The strapless gown featured multiple tiers, all in a delightful ombre shade which went from burnt orange to green.

She wore it with a cute peach-shaped clutch, statement earrings and suede pumps in the same burnt orange as the gown.

Looks expensive, right? Well that’s where you’re wrong, it only costs £79. It’s actually a limited edition creation by high street brand Mango, and it has now been re-stocked online.

Shop now: Tie-dye print dress for £79.99 from MANGO

The version you can buy is slightly different, as it’s a sleeker, more A line shape than the tiered version Sofia wore, and thus more wearable. it also features barely-there straps around the neckline.

It has only been re-issued in a limited number of sizes, so do be quick if you want to buy this beauty, which will be great for summer occasions, worn with strappy sandals.

The Queen’s old house is up for sale and it’s stunning


Anyone got a spare £5 million?

Queen Elizabeth style

Being the Queen has its advantages, with the monarch having personal chefs, someone to break in her shoes for her and not one but two birthdays.

But it wasn’t these that made Queen Elizabeth headline news this week, but rather her property, with one of the Queen’s former homes put up for sale.

No, it’s not Buckingham Palace, or Balmoral, or Windsor Castle for that matter. Instead, the house in question is her former Malta home, Villa Guardamangia. And it could be yours for a cool £5.3 million.

Fans of The Crown will know that the royal couple lived in Malta part-time in the early years of their marriage, between 1949 and 1951, during which Prince Philip served on HMS Chequers as part of the Royal Navy Mediterranean Fleet.

Villa Guardamangia / Credit: Anthony Wallace/Shutterstock

The 1,560sqm villa, on the outskirts of Valletta, is more like a mansion than a house, boasting six bedrooms, three bathrooms and a huge sitting room.

Having the Queen as a former resident however is undoubtedly its main selling point, with the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh even given a watercolour painting of their former house during their 2015 visit to Malta.

‘Visiting Malta is always very special for me,’ the Queen recalled during the visit. ‘I remember happy days here with Prince Philip when we were first married.’

If you’ve got £5 million spare, happy house hunting.

If not, same.

      These devices help minimize breathing problems in individuals with asthma and other breath-related conditions. Now, let's move on to the buying guide, which will help you find the right product.

      Breathing Exerciser Buying Guide

      1. Resistance

      Depending on how strong your respiratory muscles are, you can pick a device's resistance level. Some devices provide resistance during inhalation and exhalation, and some provide it only during inhalation. For quick improvement, you can use a device that comes with double resistance. But if you are looking to increase your strength slowly, and if your breathing problem is relatively minor, a single resistance device will work fine.

      2. Portability And Size

      Some breathing exercise machines with a large volume capacity are heavy and huge. These devices are suitable if you plan to use them at home. But there are other available devices that are lightweight and handy. If you travel often, these portable devices are perfect for you.

      Improving your breathing can improve your quality of life.
