First Lady Randz
Born in Highbury London in 1982, Arsenal Fan Miranda Gravesande also known as ‘First Lady Randz’💃🏾 works full time whilst juggling family time with her fiance & their children as well as keeping up her ‘me’ time socialising with friends. First Lady Randz believes being a mother is the best feeling in the world, nothing beats that unconditional love & bond you get the day you become a parent. Like most parents, she wants the very best for her children and being the career driven lady that she is, she decided to return to work full time after having them, not an easy decision when you miss out on special moments as they grow. She has been in the aviation industry for 16 years building a wealth of expertise across several area’s from the ground to the air & is currently a Process Manager for TUI UK & Ireland.
First Lady Randz believes having a healthy body is key to a focused mind, she tries her hardest to go to the gym & eat well, but like most of you, she loves her food way too much & struggles to keep on top of a healthy lifestyle whilst balancing the hustle & bustle of her daily life.
A Winston Churchill quote First Lady Randz swears by is “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” With this always in her mind, she likes to get involved in as many charitable events as possible, in order to give to those less fortunate or those suffering with illnesses. Two of her favourite charity events to date are, a Tandem Skydive for the Family Holiday Association; as you can see in the picture, she gave it a 👍🏾 and a charity fashion which she organised on her own accord, it showcased 30 children aged 6-10 modelling high street retailers such as New Look & Sports Direct in a bid to raise awareness & money for a local charity Autism Bedfordshire.
First Lady Randz has a passion for fashion, which stems from childhood modelling, so ladies and gents look out for her fashion blogs and pictures showcasing her outfits and style tips.
Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something. For most of you, life isn’t an easy road & this leads First Lady Randz on to the reason she wanted to start up a Blog, to help others through the struggles & challenges that life throws at you, through sharing her life experiences & opinions as well as learning from your shared stories.

Karlene O’Connor affectionately known as ‘Karlz’ was born in Jamaica in 1976. She migrated to the UK in 1994 to join her mother and eventually settled there. She’s the proud mother to 2 boisterous boys and juggles her time working, caring for her family and threading up and down the country to their various football games with her husband.
Family is everything to her and she always put them first. As a result of this she has delayed pursuing her career in avenues that would interfere with her family life and settled for more comfortable, flexible and less strenuous roles. Now her kids are at a more independent age, Karlene is looking to embark on a change and pursue her dreams and aspirations.
Having gathered a wealth of qualifications over the years from BA Hons in Marketing, Diploma in Business & Finance and CIPD Level 3 Diploma in Human Resource Practice (Assoc. CIPD) and having never worked in any of these fields, she has now decided to go with the latter (CIPD) and build her career path. She is very passionate about the fundaments of HR and its practices within the workforce and wants to further develop her knowledge and experience.
One of her favourite saying is to ‘live for today as tomorrow is never promised’. This has contributed into the funny, loving, bubbly and affectionate person that she is today. She doesn’t take life too seriously and get bogged down with issues she has no control over. She gains enormous strength from knowing that she’s not the only one having to deal with various issues or obstacles daily, ‘whatever it is that life throws at her, theirs always someone going through far worst so don’t get grind down by it all, just keep going and more importantly, keep smiling’.
She will continue to treat others how she would expect to be treated even if it is not reciprocated back to her.
Life is what YOU make it so be the best YOU that you can be!!
