We got chatting to Tigerlily Taylor, model, writer and painter, about her lockdown life…

WHERE ARE YOU WRITING THIS?

From quarantine in Surrey.

 

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

Cornwall and Ibiza! Anywhere by the sea. 

 

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

Stay creative. I’ve been spending most of my time writing, reading and painting.  

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU LAUGHING? 

My siblings, my boyfriend and House Party wine dates with my girls!

 

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

How lucky I am to have somewhere to escape to outside of London, to be able to buy enough food and to have my brother, sister and boyfriend to spend the time with… also my dog (but I never take her for granted anyway.) 

 

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

The Frankincense Store, The Grain Shop, Nuka Nails in Portobello! I really miss having my nail art done. 

 

WHAT RESTAURANT WILL BE YOUR FIRST MEAL POST QUARANTINE?

Phat Phuc noodle bar in Chelsea is my favourite for pho and prawn dim sum. I also love a good vegan box from The Grain Shop in Portobello. 

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU ENTERTAINED - PRINT OR DIGITAL?

My books, my dog and working on my screenplays. 

 

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

Spoons! I love all card games, my Dad always used to call me the card shark when I was little because I was sneakily good… and Cards Against Humanity if that counts. 

 

WHAT WOULD YOUR DREAM SUIT LOOK LIKE?

An oversized green silk suit with a Tailored jacket with black lapels, and a brightly coloured yellow and black tiger print silk lining… very specific! 

 

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING ON NETFLIX?

Im watching Ozark, Westworld and Killing Eve. 

 

WHAT ARE YOU READING?

I always have a couple of books on the go, I just finished Shoe Dog by Nike creator Phil Knight. Now I’m reading Norwegian Wood by Murakami as my main but I’ve got some Steinbeck and Ballard and a book of essays and lectures called Daemon Voices by Phillip Pullman, on the go as well. 

 

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

I’ve had some skin issues recently so have been using isolation time to try and sort it out and give it a break from makeup. At the moment I’m using La Roche-Posay moisturising wash. I love Sand and Sky pink clay mask and have been mixing it with frankincense powder. I also mix in a bit of frankincense oil with The Ordinary pressed rose oil for moisturiser. Basically frankincense everything. 

 

YOUR GO TO VITAMINS?

I’ve just started taking Neem pills to help with skin and as well as a strong probiotic for gut health, I’ve been taking turmeric and B vitamins. 

 

WHAT IS YOUR HOME WORKOUT OF CHOICE?  

I’ve really been missing my Muay Thai training sessions so feel lucky that I have a bag here to train with. I’ve also been using Kayla Itsines’ “Sweat” app which is a great eight week bikini bod programme.
