Easy Living team as Health & Beauty Director and was a key player in re-launching this glossy magazine.
Can I have more than one?! Fresh breath, clean hair, quenched skin and groomed nails – all simple things that make me feel 'put together'. But if I had to choose just one product addiction, it would be Le Petit Marseillais Lait Réparateur au Karite – it's a big body lotion in a pump bottle that full of Shea Butter and smells of holidays. I buy it in French supermarkets for about 4 Euros. It's the most incredible body lotion – I use it every day, top-to-toe.
YOU FEEL MOST BEAUTIFUL WHEN?
When I've had my hair blow-dried in a salon. It's usually fussy and shapeless, but when I surrender it to a barrel brush and blow-dryer in the skilled hands of a good stylist, it becomes bouncy and soft and it inexorably heightens my self-confidence. It's my safety blanket!
BEST BEAUTY TIP YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
If your mascara gets a bit dry and clumpy, blast it with a hair-dryer for 15 seconds to soften it up. Try it. Seriously, it's an amazing trick.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?
Easy and casual, with a flash of fun. Today, for instance, I'm in a black sleeveless cotton tunic, black leggings and mad gold Chanel heels with chains that make me sound like a cowboy.
WHAT’S THE MOST PRIZED POSSESSION IN YOUR CLOSET?
I have two: one old, one new. My 'old' is a cream fringed silk shawl that Karl Lagerfeld gave to my mother as her wedding present. He designed her wedding dress when he worked at Chloe (it was a knee-length, short-sleeved tea dress). My 'new' is my classic steel black-faced men's Rolex – a very precious gift from my husband. I think of him every time I fiddle around with it.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT LIVING IN LONDON?
Its infinite supply of inspiration flashes. Today on my way into work I saw a grown man learning how to horse-ride in the park, and a bold red lip on a mother with her pram. Seeing other people make an effort makes me want to try harder myself.
