Tell us a little bit about your business - What makes your business a little different from others?

I am a beauty consultant, I specialise in colour therapy and pampering yourself. I also operate some online services like makeup and skincare lessons.

What’s your favourite ever product or service that you currently sell or have sold?

My favourite ever product is my Setting powder, I love that it’s so versatile.

Why did you choose this business to run or establish? 

My business stemmed from finding that perfect lippy and I honestly never looked back. I've gone from a very demanding day job to working around my toddler, all because of a piece of makeup that made me feel fantastic.

How are you pivoting or adapting your business during this crazy Covid virus time?

My business has changed shape during lockdown and will be emerging with some new services including colour therapy (online and local) and lash lifting (local)


What is your one product or service you would recommend for either a pregnant woman, newborn mom, or for babies, toddlers, or young children? 

My number one service for new Mama's would be a hand and arm massage. We do a lot with our hands as a new mama, they deserve some down time too.


Personally Related


Who or what inspires you?

I am inspired daily by my toddler (my Mushy) who tackles the world head-on despite having communication barriers, I often think life must be frustrating but it never shows.


What TV shows can make you binge on all day long? 

My binge show would have to be Friends, I remember watching the box sets in marathons and it still never gets old.

What is your favourite ‘me-time’ or ‘self-care’ activity? 

Me time is a little scarce at times as you can imagine but I love a good facemask and kitty cuddles when I get some downtime.

What is one thing you love about living in Yorkshire? 

There are so many things to love about Yorkshire but I think the dales have my heart the most, they are so pretty I could drive around them for hours.

What is your advice to a new born mom?

Advice to new Mama's - sleep when they sleep, as much as we want to love them all day every day you need to rest too.

What is your advice to a toddler’s mom?

And for toddler Mama's remember these stages do pass, don't be too hard on yourself for feeling frustrated or annoyed at them sometimes, we vent at those we love the most and you are their whole world to love.
