It was a real honour to be recognised our sustainable service as the “ Deliveroo of car care for our generation.”

In addition to speaking at Financial Times as one of the thought leaders, I was equally thrilled to wear Sella McCartney’s newest S/S18 collection piece, the bold “ANKARA” dress. It offered me additional confidence when speaking amongst CEO, Senior Executives and Thought Leaders in the Industry.

I chose to wear a fashion designer who champions sustainability and female eco warrior, OBE English fashion designer, Stella McCartney.  A standout statement  “ANKARA” print and puffed sleeve dress in Stella McCartney’s latest S/S18 Collection was the perfect choice.

Stella McCartney’s “ANKARA” dress has so many flattering details, like the bold prints, tailored fit and dramatic sleeves that drapes from the shoulders and moves elegantly as I  walked through the crowd of dark suits.

Gloss & Go Blow Dry | DryBy Salon

Best for hair blow dry 

Having a good blow-dry can transform your entire look and for this reason, blow-dry bars are heaven sent – speedy, functional and expertly executed.

DryBy outside

What I love about DryBy, they offer a speedy makeover with a capsule collection of five blow-dry styles that will take you across the globe – from a classic London look, to beach-ready Rio waves and back to the sleek and chic Upper East Side.  I chose the ROME. 

DryBy Before

Channeling my inner Sophia Loren and my passion for big hair and volume.   I thought it was best suited for a Monday – setting a strong tone for the week ahead right?

The gloss-and-go transformation at DryBy make lacklustre hair look fresh again due to the products used Original & Mineral ( O &M ),  an indie Australian botanical brand I am now crazy about.  The O&M products to “maintain your mane” made easy in even the most hottest summer months of the year while living in a city like London where humidity runs quite high.   Oils of Evening Primrose and Macadamia seed combine in a mild moisturizing everyday formula that cleanses the hair and scalp. Antioxidants and amino acids in Banksia Flower protect, helping freshly washed hair stay healthy.

Hair Back DryBy

O&M hair productsThe result? Hair immediately looks refreshed, healthy and shiny.  Plus, it’s located on Mortimer Street right next to spin studio mid day hair emergencies.

DryBy After

The 35-minute blow-dry is accompanied by a coffee or sparkling wine so you can disconnect while gloss-and-go transformation make lacklustre hair look fresh out the door quickly.

Glow For It | FaceGym

Best for instant facial glow  

It’s Wednesday and I just landed in London for business. Often I feel that I am re-living the American film,  Up In The Air a frequent flyer and secretly always counting my air miles.

The FG studio

With a few hours to spare before my catch-up meeting with one of my favourite client, I thought a little “glow” this afternoon would add nicely to my polished appearance.

New FG photo

With FaceGym flag ship studio on Kings Road, I jumped in an uber and booked their new The Party Face (55 mins) online in 3 easy steps.  The treatment promises to tighten and brighten with 24karat gold and silver workout. I chose the gold. The benefit? Gold boosts collagen for the ultimate pre-party radiance. Although I wasn’t planning to attend a party afterwards, I definitely needed an ultimate pre-party radiance to boost this afternoon.

The Party Face (55 mins) included a combination of FaceGym’s unique electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) device that emits mild, yet forceful electrical waves to stimulate muscles and restore skin’s elasticity with the famous 24 karat gold mask from Mimi Luzon for an immediate lift and radiance.

My skin looked flushed, dewy and healthy and my cheekbones more prominent.  It’s ideal way of de-puff and brighten your skin after even a short flight from Zurich.

The FG 2

FaceGym founder, Inge Theron, “Our new FaceGym revolutionises the beauty scene. Pairing natural products and techniques with state of the art technology, we are able to offer customers non-invasive treatments that help sculpt, lift and tone.”

FaceGym has always been my go-to brand when in London as it offers a healthier alternative in maintaining innovative techniques to stretch and strengthen our 40-odd facial muscles.  A personal trainer (basically a masseuse for your face) uses various knuckling movements and whipping strokes to stimulate blood circulation and collagen production to give the illusion of having had a face lift without the needles.

The Face Gym is available at Selfridges and also at its flagship on the King’s Road.
