#mood ... just seen my phenomenal co-star @therock 's post on Instagram about working with me. It's got me beaming from ear to ear with pride, and skipping into the start of this week like #igotthis#happy !! Hope your week has got off to a similarly fantastic start!!! Sending love and light your way.... Thank you @therock !! I love working with you too!!!
Still processing... visited #atlanta 's Civil Rights museum yesterday... if you're in town I can't recommend a visit highly enough. I was moved to tears, and so inspired by the bravery of the countless men and women who risked their lives to secure the freedom and rights of all in the USA. 🏽
Family Time! My family have visited me on the set of almost every single film I've been part of. Making no exception they are with me in #atlanta where I'm filming for #memorialdayweekend !!
This week has been a whirlwind of travel and work. In the last 6 days I've been in #atlanta#neworleans#monaco#cannes#london and I'm just stepping on another flight right now. But in amongst all the travel I'm so grateful that the timing worked out so that I could organise surprise #birthdaydinner for two of the people I love most in the world... My mummy and one of my bestfriends. Thank you @asiadecubauk@parkchinois@olliet13@azmajid for all making it possible!! Can't believe I managed to catch them both off guard, and get 'em!!!

Being a busy bee this week! With #princealbert II opening the first @omega store in Monaco which is inside the casino where #goldeneye was filmed in 1995 with #piercebrosnan !! It marked the start of a long standing relationship between @Omega and the #bond films, which I'm very happy to be part of continuing. Life is hectic at the moment with tons of travel, long hours, and hard work but I am loving every minute of it and full of gratitude. Who knew little old me, born and raised in #northlondon#finsburypark would end up jetting around the world like this! Just goes to show #anythingispossible#havefaith#havefun
@swarovski#atelierswarovski Today is one of those pinch myself days! In #Cannes to launch my collaboration with #atelierswarovski 's new fine jewellery collection which is made largely from 'created' diamonds and emeralds... 'created' diamonds are man-made and therefore both socially and environmentally conscious... but just as stunning as natural diamonds with the same clarity and durability!
As the daughter of an immigrant, it was with an added sense of pride that I received an OBE from the Queen today. I spent the ceremony reflecting on how my deceased grandparents would have felt seeing their granddaughter receive this kind of recognition from a country they fought so hard to be accepted by. I am proud to be British, and proud to be of Jamaican/Trinidadian descent, and I am incredibly proud of all the sacrifices my grandparents made so that I could live my dreams.
