5 minutes with Ashlea Holdsworth
What is your favourite work out? Boxing - I love the high intensity of boxing and when I've had a crazy day at work I feel like I can let off some steam.
Can you tell us your four essential beauty products? Hypo allergenic sunscreen from Cetaphil, Clinique Even Better SPF 15 Make Up, Clinique High Impact Mascara & The Base Lip to Cheek Tint!
What are you reading at the moment? By the time I get home from work and put my son to bed, I'm exhausted. I pick up a book and before I get through the first page, I'm asleep. So I'm currently not reading anything. I still love reading fashion magazines, when I can, for inspiration. I love everything digital but there is something so nice about picking up Vogue and flicking through the pages.
What do you think every woman should have in her wardrobe? A good pair of sneakers!!!
Tell me something nobody knows about you? When I am in physical pain I can’t stop laughing - so strange! Also when I am over-tired I laugh hysterically.
What are the beauty essentials you think every woman should own? A good moisturiser & shampoo.
What has been your most memorable holiday to date? There have been a few but one of my favourites would be Malta with my husband a few years ago. It was incredible and we had the best time.
What do you do each day that's just for you? Going to work and being able to sit and enjoy my morning coffee in quiet is something I really enjoy, and it's time to just be with myself.
Who or what makes you glow with inspiration? My son River. He constantly makes me laugh and smile and is simply the biggest source of joy in my life. He inspires me to work hard, so I work hard for him.
What are your rules to live by? Be happy & enjoy every moment.
What work are you most proud of? Definitely number one would be raising my son & I am also proud of THE UPSIDE. Working on this brand from day one and seeing it go from strength to strength is something that I am extremely proud of.
What is your favourite city for beauty treatments? I don't usually get a lot of treatments done but I had a fabulous facial not long ago in Hong Kong while on a work trip - it was heaven
