Tiania Haneline and Scarlett Gray Smith make up one of TikTok's most positive (and self-love-centric) mother/daughter duos. The East Coast-based pair is well-known for their sweet affirmation videos, with their most viral moments attracting the attention of Good Morning America, POPSUGAR, USA Today and more. Growing up in an affirming household herself, Tiania was determined to pass the same values onto Scarlett and her two sons, Walker and Reice. She began repeating affirmations with Scarlett while doing her hair every morning, teaching her to embrace the beauty of her skin, curls, kindness and every trait in between. With the power of TikTok, Tiania and Scarlett are spreading that joy and self-love to an audience of more than five million.



About the Illustrator


Stephanie Dehennin is an illustrator based in Antwerp, Belgium. After studying illustration at Saint Lukas in Ghent, she—somewhat unplanned—became a freelance art director in the magazine world, but never stopped drawing and painting. The love for illustration was too strong to ignore, so she decided to dedicate the rest of her career to drawing and painting for children. Stephanie reveres Hayao Miyazaki, Tim Burton, and Dr Seuss, and has a mild obsession for flying contraptions, robots, and excessively large machinery.




Tiania & Scarlett


If you're feeling down, take a mental note from 5-year-old Scarlett Smith who starts each day stating that she's pretty, fierce and that her future is bright.


Each morning while Scarlett's mom, Tiania Haneline, does her hair, Scarlett repeats a set of affirmations to remind her that she's kind and loved.


"You literally wouldn't think that she gets it," Haneline told "Good Morning America." "But the confidence I feel like she is building it herself -- like looking in the mirror and just having this like, fierceness about her."


The mother-daughter duo from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, have always done daily affirmations, but they first started sharing them to Tik Tok last month amid the civil unrest happening across the country.


For Haneline, a white mom, raising Scarlett who is mixed race, it was important for her daughter to recognize how beautiful she is at an early age and to be confident in her brown skin.


"People are going to look at her as a Black woman. They're not going to see her as a mixed-race woman," said Haneline. "Instilling that, 'I love my brown skin, I am beautiful, my curls are beautiful…' I just want to instill that in her. So whenever she does get called names, because I know she's going to, that it's not going to bother her."


The daily affirmations have built so much confidence in the 5-year-old that Scarlett isn't afraid to also tell others how beautiful they are too.


Scarlett says she wants to be a superstar when she gets older and she’s well on her way. To follow the duo, their handle is @scarlettandtiania on TikTok, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

My Review


I am excited, honored, and proud (Aunt) to introduce you to my beautiful (niece) Tiania Haneline and her talented daughter, Scarlett Gray. Their first children's book! ✨@scarlettandtiania ✨5.8M on TikTok ✨270K IG



I'M GOING TO HAVE A GOOD DAY!

Daily Affirmations with Scarlett.


As the book nerd in the family (voracious reader, book blogger, book influencer, book reviewer, author website designer)— when Tiania texted me about a year ago to tell me the news of a book deal, I was OVERJOYED and ECSTATIC!


The mother-daughter team has inspired millions and continues to do so daily, and a lot of love goes into the routines she shares with families worldwide. It warms my heart to see my niece give thanks to my brother-in-law (her dad), who instilled in his three children the power of affirmations, love, and support.


Scarlett dedicates the book to all children, big or small, loud or quiet, exuberant or shy. May you paint the world with your shining colours.


If you have seen the famous mother-daughter duo on TV, videos, Tik Tock, or other social media, you know how inspiring they are to other children, teens, siblings, mothers, fathers, and grandparents. Families who may be different but love each other the same.


The book is beautiful with vivid, colorful photos and affirmations and showcases their family and interactions. The illustrator did a great job, and they come alive on the pages. I hope we see more books from Tiania with Scarlett as she ages, and we can continue to follow her incredible journey.
