We got talking with Hermione Underwood, founder of fine jewellery brand Atelier Romy, director at Brand Consultancy The H Collective and blogger, about what’s keeping her going this lockdown.

WHERE ARE YOU WRITING THIS?

From my dream flat in Notting Hill! 

 

WHERE ARE YOU DREAMING OF GOING AS SOON AS THE QUARANTINE ENDS?

Dinner parties and long lunches with friends... 

 

WHAT QUOTE/ MANTRA / MINDFULNESS GO TO IS GETTING YOU THROUGH THIS?

Everyone is in this together. It's an amazing time to do all those things you've been putting off.. Spring Clean, organise that cupboard, read that book. I'm enjoying guilt free netflix, cooking and I've finally succumb to FaceTime which I usually hate! 

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU LAUGHING? 

All my friends... and my family whatsapp chat. 

 

WHAT WON’T YOU EVER TAKE FOR GRANTED AGAIN POST QUARANTINE?

Being able to jump on a plane... 

 

WHAT SMALL BUSINESSES ARE YOU LOVING AND WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A SHOUT TO?

I'm really enjoying the community on social media. I have been focusing on supporting small businesses through my insta so I did a call out and received hundreds of submissions of small businesses needing support because of Covid-19 but also lots that have just been through hardship because of the bushfires in Australia, too. I've written a blog post which includes a list of some amazing small businesses you can rally around and support over this time. 

 

WHAT RESTAURANT WILL BE YOUR FIRST MEAL POST QUARANTINE?

Good Question!!!!! Too many to name... probably La Petit Maison, China Tang, Scotts or Chisou. 

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU ENTERTAINED - PRINT OR DIGITAL?

Digital! Instagram, Netflix... the usual. 

 

WE ARE CALLED THE DECK – WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CARD GAME?

SNAP! haha. 

 

WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM SUIT LOOK LIKE?

Anything by The Deck... I LIVE IN SUITS and you are literally my dream brand. If I could wear The Deck every day, I would. My dream suit would be a Saint Laurent style Smoking Suit. 

 

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING ON NETFLIX?

I just finished Medici The Magnificent... if you love a bit of Italian history with a hot main character! 

 

WHAT ARE YOU READING?

Shoe Dog, The Alchemist and The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People.

 

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR SKINCARE REGIME? THE PRODUCTS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT?

I am skincare obsessed! I love the MZ Skin moisturiser and mask, Dr. Barbara Sturm cleansers and exfoliators, Chanel Serums and Augustinus Bader creams. 

 

YOUR GO TO VITAMINS?

JSHealth! I'm currently taking the Skin+Digestion and the Hair+Energy and I've noticed a real difference. 

 

WHAT IS YOUR HOME WORKOUT OF CHOICE? 

I've just been walking... I'm really missing my usual spin / boxing / pilates classes but can't quite bring myself to work out at home, yet!
