Kelleigh – Founder/CEO
I grew up in South London and has been raised in a family who devotes their lives to Jesus. I attended church from a very young age with my grandparents, of which my grandfather was the Pastor of the church.
Both grandparents have been very instrumental and influential my life, it has been through my strong relationship with them that I has learned many of the morals, values and faith that I hold today.
I have encountered life struggles as most of us have, it has been through the grace of God that I managed to get through the trials and tribulations life has thrown my way.
Through God, this has led me to pursue and share my passion for people and building healthy environments a thoughts and wisdom through Life Essence UK
“I love people, I love to support, empower and encourage the people I meet to achieve their goals. Getting to know the real you excites me and supporting you be your true self is magical!”

Sofia – Key Worker
I am 24 years young and living in south London.
I do the usual young adult stuff – trying to gain the perfect balance of work, university, and a social life that’s at least half alive. Along with my journey of self-discovery, I embarked upon the glorious God Almighty who has helped see me through it, providing me with strength along the way.
I know how tough and worldly life can be especially for a young person seeking to be born again, so I am here to provide blogs on looking out for the signs God provides, dealing with life’s pressures and just the normal day to day topics to help see us young people through.
I provide an open-minded, non-judgemental approach and promise to keep it ALL THE WAY 100 with you!
If there is anything you ever want me to speak upon, any questions or problems you wish to share with me ya girls door is always open x
Blu – Key Worker
Hi I’m Blu, I live in Kent and prior to jumping on board with LE, I have been working with an organisation for the last few years running self esteem courses for our youngsters in schools, youth centers and doctors surgeries as part of social prescribing.
Through LE, I’ve now been given an amazing opportunity to work with others where there is need.
I have learned over the years that so many of us do not see the beauty others’ see in us, and it takes a lot of getting to grips with who we really are, in order for us to realize our full potential and fly. My heart is to show you, YOU..

I’m young father and husband who believes that every and anyone who seeks redemption can achieve it. Redemption through a relationship with Christ. The very fact that I’ve made mistakes, and still do at times, yet I’m where I am in life isn’t down to my perfection, but is a testimony of what God can do. If he can use me, there’s no reason why he can’t do the same and more in your life.

Hiya, Queen of Chaydes here aka Corleen J. Bogle – don’t forget the jay. I’m the daughter of Windrush immigrants so both my parents use to what we’d call “pop style pon we” back in the dayz – So they were sharp, cool and oozing style. So having not 1 but 2 dress puss parents you know style is in my DNA! But I had to grow my confidence to reach where I know who I am and what I want to say using clothing and boy I have got a lot to say!
I’ve always always lived in the South East now residing in Upper Catford – yep I’ve renamed it coz that’s how I roll! I love most things creative so style and writing are just a few of my favourite things.
It’s been great creating my new role as the Director of my wardrobe and the reason why Style Principles came about was my passion for clothing and people and working on collaborating with both. Grabbing fashion by the scruff of its neck and styling it to suit me! Yeah giving myself permission to tear up the rule book and do it my way. Rising up an army of Clothing Ambassadors, step out in style and having fun along the way.
Life isn’t perfect but there’s no excuse why your outfit can’t be – lol
Diana – Volunteer Blogger
Coming from a strict religious West Indian background and being a middle child, growing up was tough. My father was my best friend and confidant. He would often take me to work with him as a child, as an adult he provided sound advice on every subject matter I asked.
I don’t pretend to know what I’m doing all the time, I am still learning and readily admit when I make mistakes but I thoroughly enjoy learning and acquiring new skills.
