When did you start using Sanctuary and what was your first product?

I first used Sanctuary many years ago and my earliest purchase which I remember was a body wrap set with bandages which made me look like a mummy!


How much ‘me’ time do you get and how do you like to spend it?

I try to have some me time every day if possible, mainly spent with a relaxing bath, I particularly like the Sanctuary Sleep range if I want to truly relax and sleep better.


If you could give advice to your younger self, what would you say to her?

My advice to my younger self would be to travel more and don't be afraid to do it alone.


What’s your secret to a work/life balance?

I think the secret to a work life balance is not to stress about living up to ideals, do what works for you.


What is your favourite book and why?

My favourite book would probably be Secret Shoppers Club, all the characters have faced unexpected obstacles and overcome them to get what they truly want in life.


What is your favourite Sanctuary product and how does a pamper with it make you feel?

It's difficult to choose which is my favourite Sanctuary product, but if I had to it would be the Sleep body butter, I love using it after a bath and the way the fragrance lasts until the next day.


What is your number 1 beauty secret?

My number one beauty secret would be look after your wellbeing and your beauty will shine through.


Name one thing you are grateful for today:

One thing I'm grateful for today, is how much nature I have on my doorstep and how it can flourish and rebuild.


What is your ultimate Selfish Sanctuary moment?*

My ultimate selfish Sanctuary moment would be to give myself a head to toe pamper, lock myself away in the bathroom and create my own spa experience.
