Who Am I Really?

Recently I have been getting lots of questions on
my FB page from new followers who want to know
more about me-the face behind my biz.

I do keep most of my personal life off
Facebook and Instagram.

So instead I thought I would interview myself and give you
some juicy tit-bits you might not know.

So here goes:

What was my dream job as a child?
OK, so after realising I couldn't be a mermaid,
I then wanted to be a Charlies Angel. They were 
the "girl-power" of the time.
I guess something about that stayed with me as 
I went on to become a Criminal Psychologist.

Why jewellery?
You could say diamonds are in my DNA.
My great-grandmother was one of the first Gemologists
who was allowed to go down into the Kimberly diamond mines
in South Africa. You can read more here

Greatest Strength?

Something that may surprise you
about me?
I hate confrontation in any shape or form
(a typical Piscean some will say ;-)

Favourite Quote?

Best Piece of Advice?
My Mum always said "if you have the choice
of being right or being kind, always choose
kind". Her favourite quote from Wayne Dyer.

Hardest Piece of Criticism?
I was told by a teacher at school that there was
no point applying for University as I would never last
(as I am so easily distracted). She suggested selling perfume
in Selfridges was the best I could do! Needless to say I got 
a First at University ;-)

Who would I most like to meet?
It's quite hard for me to be in awe
of  celebrities as such. But I would have liked to have 
met Estée Lauder (after reading her biography) and also Elvis!

Morning routine?
 Meditation and writing in my Five Minute Journal.
Breakfast; this is usually a bagel! Don't judge me.
I never check emails in the morning as my day becomes too
reactive. So if you are about to die it's best you call me as 
you would have died by the time I get the email ;-)

Favourite Apps?
Word Hippo

Favourite Perfume at the moment?
Diorella by Christian Dior (my signature scent since 
I was 18).

Go-to Websites:
Victoria Health
Cult Beauty

One song that always makes me feel happy?
I have a Playlist on Spotify that is full of
all uplifting songs that I put on as soon
as I sit down to work.
One that always make me happy and fires me up is
called "The Boss" by Diana Ross

The next thing on my "treat me" list?
This bag by Bottega Veneta

My one regret?
That my Mum didn't live to see me happily married
(but she had met my Husband who was my boyfriend
at the time and she loved him to bits).

Fictional figure I would  be?
Nancy Drew (more Miss Marple now though!)

I buy every week?
Fresh flowers every Friday. It's become
part of my "weekend begins" ritual.

Is there a Mr Luxuria?
The elusive "Mr Luxuria" is rarely seen on Instagram
as he is not a fan of selfies and I also hate
having my picture taken ;-)
The picture below was a "bribed" shot.

 I have been happily married  for the last 20+ years.
and have no children (which was a conscious decision).

There you have it. A few little tit-bits
to help you understand more of who I am.
