What do you do?
I am a massage and nail therapist, providing the treatments in your own home.
What are you most proud of?
When I came to London it was like flying into the unknown… Big and scary place but also magical. I didn’t speak English!!! I am proud of finding my way, and being happy here.
What is your favourite shop?
I love markets and shopping there. It is amazing. So much character and interesting items to explore. Chic&seek is a uniq gem in this special part of Holland park. So many stories and histories get shared here or stay hidden, and create bonds between people that might have never met before. I admire Tara for her courage and creativity.
What can t you love without?
My family. My husband and my wonderful children.
What is your most memorable fashion purchase?
It has to be a cardigan I bought from Anya Hindmarch. I can wear it in the park to keep me warm but also to dress up and look fabulous.
What is your biggest fashion mistake?
Boots that I bought about 15 years ago. I knew I couldn’t walk in them but bought them anyway. To make things worse I wore them to work…. The pain was so bad I made my way home bare foot early evening. Lots of strange looks from people going home from work.
Who would play you in the film of your life?
Scarlet johannson or Amy Adams.
What is your chic beauty tip
Always look on the bright side of life!!!
