First thing you do when you wake?
What does a typical morning look like for you?
My darling husband gets the kids breakfast while I shower and get ready, then we switch. Breakfast for me is simple — toast, espresso and my vitamins! I add CILK Rose Extract to my water, it helps me sip more. I’m often rushing so anything that helps me drink more is necessary. After dropping Spencer at preschool, I head to a Pilates class then it’s off to work.
What beauty products do you keep in your handbag?
Ultra Violette Supreme Screen (for reapplication as needed), Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, Le Labo Noir 29 rollerball and — hang on, let me count — SEVEN lip products: Dior Lip Maximiser, Ultra Violette Sheen Screen, Mecca Max Pout Pop in Top Down, Mac Ruby Woo, Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk, Bite Beauty Agave and Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask.
