I love this salon! At Cheeky on Redchurch Street, you can get your nails done while having something delicious to eat. If you have a full manicure they give you a Cheeky nail polish of your choice to take home! It’s a very modern throwback to the old-fashioned beauty parlour. It’s a place that people often just go for lunch or to enjoy a slice of Victoria Sponge cake and a cup of tea. Surprisingly it’s reasonably priced: a manicure will cost you £15 and for an evening out you can get a blow dry or updo plus makeup for only £35. It’s set up so that you can book an appointment to go with a group of friends and enjoy a glass of wine while having a pedicure.
In the loos chalk is provided so that you can leave any rambling thoughts on the walls.

I am quite obsessed with skin care and it’s really important to look after your skin, especially when one could use an extra boost of hydration during the winter. I’ve always been a little bit confused about essential oils and weren’t sure if they were really necessary or doing anything. Recently I’ve been using Darphin Orange Blossom Aromatic Care and quite like it. You can apply essential oils before bed but just apply a few drops to face and neck in gentle circular motions. When I wake up my skin just feels nice and smooth. Darphin comes in a variety of scents, I’ve only tried the orange blossom but lemon, carrot, lavender and cranberry sound good too!

I used to love cycling but I’m a bit afraid with all the traffic in London. Of course on Christmas day there is almost no traffic in London so it’s the perfect day for a Christmas bike ride!

This shoot was quite a huge production as we shot in Switzerland with photographer Damien Krisl with set design by Sylvain CabouatI. We shot in a film studio as we had so many different set ups and we needed a swimming pool for one of the shots. It was quite a big production and it took weeks to plan the concept and execution, which was great as it gave me lots of time to get the exact looks I wanted. We also had seven models for the shoot so we had lots to prep!

Nail polish has gotten more complicated and there are so many choices – it makes it hard to choose. That’s why I’m aways happy when I receive a new nail polish in a gift bag. At first I wasn’t too sure about the colour – it was a bit too neutral for me and what did leather effect really mean? Of course leather is everywhere, every shop has several pieces of leather or leather like fabric at the moment – it’s trend that I quite like – but nails? The polish applies like a cream but dries with a leather effect (like it says on the bottle). To my surprise I quite liked the colour and how the nails felt to the touch!
