Can you tell us a bit about your work and life right now. What is a typical day or week like for you ?

Music, beauty and travel are my 3-pronged life, really. I worked with musicians for two decades, then got into beauty and journalism which I love. I always seem to be off somewhere new, travel keeps you young and makes us understand each other better. You have a technicolour movie full of adventures in your head and if I had children I’d be whisking them off everywhere (like my lively cousin Jen does). For a freelancer my week is surprisingly structured, it’s great to work in pyjamas on cold winter days but I need a routine. Tons of emails, lots of skincare/new beauty launch testing and research and time-consuming social media which I have a love-hate relationship with (lately!)Fiona2

What makes you feel healthy ?

Telling the truth, avoiding wheat, walking, not rushing and sleeping well.
And counting your basket of blessings.

What do you do to relax or to switch off

Cook, walk, read, listen to music, write, travel and take photos. I love storytellers and storytelling, so Morocco and Ireland are two of my favourite escapes. There’s a warmth to storytelling.

Beatitude Joy Bath Oil


What is your favourite beatitude product and why do you love this ?Beauty Awards Finalist

Ah my very first Beatitude Joy Bath Oil, probably! It’s just SUCH a deliciously vibrant, citrussy scent. If there was a Beatitude Joy fragrance It would be absolute heaven! I’ve followed Beatitude from the early days and seeing you expand and do so well makes my heart sing. Aromatherapy is one of my greatest loves and you do it so well. Thank you.
