She didn’t have time! She would duck in, have a few go-to products (I can still remember the smell of her apricot/almond night cream that she used to put on) and that would be it. Now I’m the same when I’m not at work!
I put on Garnier BB Cream in the morning before school drop off with mascara and lip balm- that’s it. I wear heavy make up on the show so I can’t wait to come home, wipe off my make up with Micellar Water, put on a couple of serums and some moisturiser.
While I get it done every day on the project, on weekends I like to go for a run, duck to a pilates class and have a long list of errands. I need to be able to chuck it up in a pony and get on with things. When I have a good colour, it makes it so much easier.
The last time I tried to go brown I was 19 and it was a disaster, it came out red and didn’t suit me. I still remember the look on my friend’s faces! I think it scared me off ever trying it again, but thankfully home hair colour has come a long way! But I am finding the older I get, the more confident I am getting to take risks. It’s only hair, it will grow back, and it’ll go back to its natural colour, just give it a crack I say!
… with the change of seasons I wanted to try being a brunette. That’s why I love Nutrisse because it makes my hair so soft and shiny that even when I don’t style it, it looks done. I used Garnier Nutrisse in shade 6, Acorn.
I do actually exercise in it, not just coffee! I’m conscious of spending more time looking out to the world than in a mirror, it was something my mum taught me. I really want to pass it on to my daughter in this social media heavy world. Of course I like to look nice, eat well, exercise, work hard and have fun, but I like to feel like I am contributing to the world and making a difference, that’s what’s important”.
