I'd like to introduce you to a new series called 'The Fabulous Files', where I interview people I admire about all things beauty.
I thought I'd start the series answering the questions myself to get a feel for it.

What's your earliest makeup memory?
I remember watching my mum put her makeup on when I was very small. She had these fabulous fluffy pink makeup brushes that she used for powder and Revlon blushers.
What was your first perfume?
Aside from the kiddy roll on perfumes I had when I was 5, my Nana used to give me the last of her bottle of Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue when she bought a new one.
What is your signature fragrance now?
These days I prefer J'adore EDP by Dior that my boyfriend has treated me to a couple of bottles of.
What was the last item of makeup you bought?
I haven't bought any makeup for a while! I did buy a great leather Napoleon brush roll that fits most of my makeup brushes though.
Do you have a makeup wishlist for the future?
I'm very keen to try the Teint Miracle foundation by Lancôme that I've heard good things about. I need to buy a new Urban Decay Primer Potion as well.
Biggest hair disaster?
I've had a couple of shockers. When I was seven I convinced my mum to let me get my hair cut reeeeaalllllyyyyy short (think Anne Hathaway's latest buzz do!). A couple of years ago I tried to go blonde. After 3 bleach attempts we realised that I was never going to shake the spun gold look.
Best beauty discovery?
Probably face serums? I just think they work overtime for your skin. In particular I like Clarins Multi Active Skin Renewal Serum or Clarins Hydraquench Serum if my skin is particularly dehydrated.
What is your ultimate indulgence?
A Guinot Hydradermie Facial. They use these machines that oxygenate your skin. A facial and a massage is ultra luxurious for me. Sometimes even taking 5mins out of my day to spend scrubbing and moisturising my body is an indulgence.
I hope you liked the first post in 'The Fabulous Files' series.
Keep coming back to see who I interview next!
