When did you start using Sanctuary and what was your first product?
My first ever product was actually a set I got as a present. I think it was a spray body oil which was really nice. It smells very nice and so easy to use after my showers. I even bought one for my dad since he had really dry legs and he liked it.
How much ‘me’ time do you get and how do you like to spend it?
Nowadays I don't have much "me" time as I run around like a crazy person. It's a bit harder with 2 teenagers and a seasonal job. I like to go to my weekly yoga sessions and once in a while meet up with friends for catch up coffee/tea (that's how I call it). If I take "me" time I like to read have a nice pamper in my own home or even bake if I feel like it.
If you could give advice to your younger self, what would you say to her?
If I could give advice to my younger self I would tell her use more sun cream, I rarely did thinking that my skin doesn't burn but it left some sun spots now. I would also tell her not to always be a good girl and live life more.
What’s your secret to a work/life balance?
There's no secret to my work/life balance. I only work seasonal so I have more time than full time working mums. I really admire mums who work full time. But when I work every day around summer time I liketo relax with a nice drink (non-alcohol though) with a bit of binge watching Netflix. I also have a lot of lists to tick if it gets busy around summer time. I am a list person!
What is your favourite book and why?
I have too many favourite books but the first one I ever read which was my favourite was "the joy luck club" by Amy Tan. I felt connected to the stories because my parents are migrants from Hong Kong and I am 1st Generation born outside Hong Kong. After that book I read a lot of books from Chinese authors. I also love Stephen King books and I try to read about 6 books a year if time allows. Because I was born in Germany I can read books in German as well.
What is your favourite Sanctuary product and how does a pamper with it make you feel?
My favourite sanctuary spa product at the moment is the sleeping body butter, but to be honest I can't say because I haven't tried all of them!
What is your number 1 beauty secret?
My number 1 beauty secret would be to always wash your face before bed and use either lukewarm or cold water, not hot water.
Name one thing you are grateful for today:
I am grateful for my 2 kids who are healthy and my friends around me.
What is your ultimate Selfish Sanctuary moment?*
My ultimate selfish sanctuary moment would be to lock myself in the bathroom with candles with a nice bath soak some chocolates, nice music and a good book.
