WHERE ARE YOU WRITING THIS?

In the dining room of our house in the Chilterns – now my office.  I love it as we have lots of blue and white Chinese vases and plates

Siena in Italy

 

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

A: One mouthful at a time…

Helps me deal with the enormity of the issues I think we need to address as this crisis pans out

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU LAUGHING? 

My husband and boys who seem to have a never ending stream of silly videos

 

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

The freedom to travel, to see my friends and go to great art galleries like the Royal Academy and great theatres like the Royal Court and the National Theatre

 

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

Now stuck at home all the wonderful clothes I normally wear are in my closet – Roksanda, Gabriela Hearst  etc. But I am loving my Piglet in Bed linen PJs and Chinti & Parker cashmeres. May need to cheer myself up with a Deck Suit soon! 

 

WHAT RESTAURANT WILL BE YOUR FIRST MEAL POST QUARANTINE?

Hopefully Claire Smyth’s Core round the corner from my home in London…it is always fully booked as the food is fabulous, but I might at last get an impromptu booking!

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU ENTERTAINED - PRINT OR DIGITAL?

I am trying to catch up on lots of reading and I love a physical book and spending so much time online for work, means a physical book or magazine is a real treat

 

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

 It used to be solitaire…but not so sure now!

 

WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM SUIT LOOK LIKE?

Sharp cut, making my legs look longer than they really are

 

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING ON NETFLIX?

Succession

 

WHAT ARE YOU READING?

In the Light of What We Know by Zia Haider Rahman

 

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

Recently I have discovered Augustinus Bader – its amazing.  So now a super simple regime –2 x a day cleanse with Lumity Charcoal cleanser and follow with 2 pumps of Augustinus Bader Rich Cream.  Oh and to look glowing – Amanda Harrington’s face tan!

 

YOUR GO TO VITAMINS?

Lumity supplements - they seem to do everything.

 

HOW ARE YOU KEEPING YOUR KIDS ENTERTAINED?

My ‘kids’ are home from university due to the virus , so they entertain themselves and do their lectures remotely.  It has been a great way to reconnect with them without all their friends/girlfriends/social engagements meaning they were always busy.  So now we are cooking together and going for walks together .

 

WHAT IS YOUR HOME WORKOUT OF CHOICE?  

I have a great trainer who is trying to help remotely.  If I can’t use him I do a class from The Daily Burn or a Tracy Anderson workout video.
