I also look up to Nicholette Wise, who is a friend from my hometown - she’s an incredible Mum, wife, friend, runs her own business – she’s a force, very real, and together. I’m constantly checking in with her as a moral compass. 

Biggest inspiration for beauty?

Carolyn Bessette Kennedy 

Your beauty advice?

Natural is best, except for when it comes to tanning: faux is better. 

Advice you would give the next generation of women? 

Stolen from Meryl Streep: “The formula of happiness and success is just, being actually yourself, in the most vivid possible way you can.”  

What qualities in women inspire you? Drive, fearlessness, irreverence, confidence, passion. 

I look for inspiration in? All the usual: art, design, architecture, film and travel. But probably more than anything, people & conversation.  I’ve done the Myer Brigg test several times and I score 90%+ in extroversion every time! People, communication, connection, and energy exchange is everything to me. 

I’m secretly addicted to?

@tasteofstreep. 

Most people don’t know that i… am not only the editor of TOMBOY Beauty, but run a consultancy too, working with some of the biggest fashion and beauty brands in the world on their content, marketing and publicity strategies. 

3 words to describe your work?

Point of difference. 

Work you are most proud of?

I guess I am always striving to be better. That said, I’m really proud to work with the photographers, stylists, writers, and talent that I do, on TOMBOY Beauty creating shit, that rivals publications that aren’t independent.
