Picking Up Cross Stitch

I haven’t picked up a needle and thread since school. I’m excited to get to work on this pillow, my hope is that by the time I’m done we’ll be out of lockdown and all able to hug again!

Decorating Tips

Finally getting around to making some interiors decisions with the help of Ben Pentreath. I love his eclectic mix of old and new, and unique use of colour and texture. He creates rooms that are memorable and look happily lived in.

Flower Creation

I’m obsessed with @thegreenvase on Instagram and have been learning how to create my very own paper flowers from its founder Livia Cetti. This is the perfect activity to get your littles ones involved in, my daughter loves choosing which flowers we are going to make next.

Hair Treatment

I have coloured my hair for years and it is in need of some TLC. Every so often I leave this (Philip Kingsley) in overnight - it’s so nourishing and after one use you can really see a difference.

Get Reading

I like to switch between new novels and non-fictional stories from entrepreneurs about start-up life. Girl, Woman, Other and Robert Iger's book are next on my list.

Face Therapy

Once the children are asleep I make the most of “me time” with my light therapy face mask.

Store Those Memories

The wonderful team at At Last! creative make the most incredible photo albums that you dream of doing yourself (but never get around to). Just send over your favourite pictures and they make the rest a piece of cake.

On The Hunt

I collect vintage plates and one of a kind hand-painted bowls, looking all year round for new finds for all those summer lunches in the garden. Host is a fantastic source.
