The Honest Mum® Blog
Welcome to Honest Mum®, my lifestyle and parenting blog with large audiences in the UK, US, Australia and Europe.
My multi-award winning site peaks at 80k monthly page views and my reach across here and social media is between 1-3 million a month. In 2019, I won Best Baby and Parenting Blog at the UK Blog Awards and Inspirational Role Model at the MPower Awards. I write a monthly column for glossy magazine Berkshire Life.

Me, Vicki Psarias
As an #1 bestselling author, blogger/vlogger, award-winning TV director and filmmaker, TV presenter, and former magazine editor, I regularly collaborate with brands on tailored content, freelance writing, event hosting, lectures/ panel discussions, ambassadorial work and consultancy. I can also direct, produce, film and edit as well as appear, in campaign films.
I have spoken about female entrepreneurship and maternal mental health respectively in the House of Commons and I contributed to strategy at the Government Equalities Office stakeholder forum on gender equality and economic empowerment.
I was honoured to be photographed by world-renowned photographer Rankin recently for a global campaign, book and exhibition celebrating maternal love.
My family and I live in Windsor, Berkshire and this is where I share my passions: family-life, food, tech, travel, the arts, style and beauty. I also run a series titled Wonderful Women where I interview women I admire to inspire us all.
I often pop up on TV as a presenter and/or expert and have appeared on BBC World News (Beyond 100 Days was broadcast to 100 million plus viewers), BBC News, BBC2’s Victoria Derbyshire, ITV’s This Morning, Good Morning Britain, BBC Breakfast, Lorraine, Channel 5 News, E News and SKY News.
Nothing beats the buzz of live TV in my opinion (bar having babies, that is!)
I do enjoy radio (2-and the others) too!

I’ve featured some of my blogging and vlogging highlights below.
I’ve loved working with Jamie Oliver, Westlife, Brad Bird, Ava DuVernay, James Martin, Aldo Zilli and the late Antonio Carluccio OBE to name just a few.
I feel incredibly lucky to do a job I love, every single day.
When it comes to campaigns, clients have included Google, Yahoo, Vodafone, Nokia, Huawai, Coca Cola, SKODA UK, Land Rover, Philips, Net-A-Porter, Selfridges, Boots, NIVEA UK, bareMinerals UK, Boots, and Superdrug amongst others. All were innovative, engaging, and vitally, authentic campaigns that resonated with my loyal followers.
Following my career as an award winning filmmaker and TV Director has seen me attend film premieres, film festivals and screenings, regularly reviewing movies and interviewing cast and crew at film junkets.
I was honoured to interview star actress Kim Cattrall as well as attend a Q&A with the great Mindy Kaling, Reece Witherspoon, Oprah, Storm Reid and Ava DuVernay, interviewing Storm and Ava beforehand.
Truly memorable occasions.
I took part in a UK book tour for MUMBOSS over a period of a year from publication, meeting hundreds of readers all over the country from York to Belfast and beyond.
I have also spoken at Marie Claire’s Future Shapers Live, BritMums Live and on a panel The Internet Advertising Bureau.
Along with Jessica Huie I co-founded ‘Passion into Pounds’ in association with the British Library offering insight into how to turn your ideas into businesses and work on your own terms. These events have trended on Twitter, reaching thousands of entrepreneurial women over the years.
Most importantly, my family and I are committed to using my platform to help others, and we regularly take part in charity campaigns both her and abroad. I’m a proud ambassador of Concern Worldwide UK (2019) and as a family, we visited Harmony an inclusive choir for Comic Relief in 2017. I also supported Sport Relief in an ambassadorial role in 2016, completing a sponsored race with my children and fundraising for this important cause.

I hope you enjoy my work!
