I love the variety first and foremost, it makes every week interesting. I also had a huge love for the hair and beauty industries. I use to work in hair trade journalism and have a real fondness and respect for hairdressers⁣⁣

LISTENING TO

Secret Keepers Club podcast by Carly Aqualino is my favourite and if I’m writing I mainly listen to BBC Radio 1 Relax on the BBC Sounds App⁣⁣

WATCHING

I love feel good shows or documentaries about horrible historical happens there’s no inbetween! So it’s like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or The Nightstalker⁣⁣
