About us

Ever feel life is getting on top of you? Bills to pay, letters to type, meetings to arrange, your business to promote, your toddler’s birthday party to plan, a present  to be bought, an endless to do list…  Not enough hours in the day to do it all?

The roomtobreathe virtual assistants team will get stuck straight into your to-do-list, however mundane or unusual. Outsource, de-clutter and choose where you should be spending your time leaving the rest to us.  We pride ourselves on being personable, friendly but always professional and thorough.  Despite being London and now Cambridge based we can and will travel.  For the last two years we’ve worked with clients all over the UK and as far as Dubai and Singapore.

We keep our finger on the pulse by monitoring all the latest trends and hotspots, ensuring that you get only the best advice from our team.

Fatima Malagueira– After graduating from the University Of Bristol with a degree in Drama and French, Fatima spent 5 years managing London theatres, followed by 12 years looking after numerous household names for a top London Theatrical Agent, Rossmore Management. Her role included finding work for the actors as well as managing both their personal and professional lives. This ranged from negotiating contracts, to dealing with their Press and PR to booking their holidays. Fatima also speaks fluent French, Spanish and Portuguese.  Fatima is also available to book as Theatrical Agent Consultant.  In her spare time Fatima can be found being a Mummy, Wife, Blogger, baking cakes, gardening, planning family holidays, doing Yoga, reading fashion mags, visiting art galleries, seeing shows, eating Laduree Macarons & shopping.

You can follow Fatima on Instagram and read her monthly articles for This Is Your Kingdom.

Bea da Silva – Bea is a highly adaptable and versatile Executive Assistant with extensive experience in supporting management at all levels across various industries.  After many years of working in large organisations, she decided to leave the hustle and bustle of the corporate world.  She now uses her skills to lend a helping hand to time challenged individuals, trying to do it all themselves.  Bea is also  bi-lingual in English/Portuguese.  Away from the virtual office Bea enjoys the buzz of living in Central London, the discipline of Iyengar Yoga, browsing on the Portobello Road, and has also recently become a member of the Notting Hill WI.

Personal recommendation is extremely important to us, so please do spread the word.  Here is what our clients have said about us:

‘Roomtobreathe seemed like the sort of luxury that ‘other people’ were entitled to, and it took us some time to come around to letting go of all the little things we just didn’t get done.  It was so easy to trust Fatima and Bea and after agreeing the ‘rules of engagement’ (and a very hefty list of birthdates and preferences) ‘Roomtobreathe’ began to work its magic for us too.  Suddenly carpentry was finished, deliveries received, and mum’s birthday remembered (bought wrapped and posted too).  There is literally nothing this business won’t consider – tax returns, finding meeting and managing reliable tradesmen, cat feeding, even research are such a treat when your needs are anticipated in this way. Get started with them, change your life – and get yourself ‘roomtobreathe’!’

‘Working in the city, you do have access to an assistant, but there are certain things which you can’t use a PA for, and which tend to sit worrying you in the back of your mind while you try to juggle work and home.  I used RTB to fill that gap for us, and found there was nothing they weren’t willing to do, from finding an electrician, to finding house/cat sitters over Christimas including interviewing 11 candidates for this and finally selecting a wonderful couple – AND then going the extra mile and doing a visit while this sit was going on.  I have been extremely impressed with the timeliness, quality and attitude of both Fatima and Bea would recommend them to anybody needing some help to keep all the balls juggled.’

‘The best thing about working with ‘roomtobreathe’ is that they ‘get it.’ They totally understand how to work with busy people who are overwhelmed with ideas, responsibilities and big to do lists. Working with them has saved me time, stress, money and lots of hassle with minimum fuss. If you value your time and are sick of chasing your tail, give ‘roomtobreathe’ a call.’
