I have very own personal alarm clock – my 20 month old son, Lucas August, who gets me up every morning without a fail!
Make women look and feel beautiful – blow dries, updos and a newly launched product line.
Nothing is impossible. Try harder or find another way!

Coffee first, go through my emails and check the client schedule for the King’s Road store.
Seeing the results and driving the evolution of Duck & Dry as a brand.
Trying to avoid carbs and eating healthy but with an odd pad thai as a treat!
I write absolutely everything down no matter how trivial it is – ideas, tasks, inspiration but most importantly daily to-do lists.
Passionate, results driven.

I have naturally fine hair so I am always after volume. My go-to product is Duck & Dry Oomph! Dry Volume and Texture Spray that instantly gives body and bounce for any style.
If had to pick one, definitely heels - an instant confidence boost.
A love a long bubble bath with lots of candles.
Consulting spreadsheets – hours and hours of them!
I am very old school and I am never without my trusted Smythson notepad!
Yoga helps to take my mind off work and deliver real results to the body.
My parents – serial entrepreneurs who are always there to encourage and give the most honest and impartial advice.
