ABOUT ME

Im a 42 year old mother of 3 (how did that happen!) My background is in beauty and my zest for life is travel with our family, our best holiday ever was Lapland. I’m an all or nothing kind of girl – I’m 30% social butterfly and 70% hermit. We are also proud owners of a rescue dog called bolt! I’ve just started to get into Pilates, it’s the one thing I do for myself once a week and it really chills me out to be cut off from everyone. My motto since turning 40 … say yes to you more and no to others more 😊


WHERE IS HOME?

Where the heart is? I’ve lived in Dubai for 9 years which has totally stolen my heart but originally I’m from Bristol.

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER? 

An actress.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I run a Facebook community  called The Big Beauty Scoop. It’s a friendly ladies forum where you can get real advise from like-minded people on all things beauty/lifestyle related. Before covid we did lots of events, but we are hoping to get back to some more beauty fun soon.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ACTIVITY TO DO WITH YOUR CHILDREN?

Go to the desert and let the children run up and down the dunes while we cook sausages and catch a sunset.

HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR WEEKENDS?

We try to get outdoors as much as weather allows and catch up with friends.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?

Love actually .. I love Christmas!

IF YOU COULD EAT ONE MEAL FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Chicken stuffed with blue cheese wrapped in Parma ham with roasted potatoes.

WHO’S YOUR CELEBRITY CRUSH?

Henry Cavil (watch The Tudors and thank me later).

WHICH DESTINATION IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST TO VISIT?

Cambodia.

WHAT’S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?

A bubble bath and an early night, or on the other extreme, Mr Miyagis when it was open.

IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

To be able to travel to the other side of the world in seconds (the downside to expat life).

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT LIVING IN DUBAI?

The kindness of strangers, the opportunities and safe life it gives us… and most of all, the friends that become family 😉
