Q. What cause are you currently championing?
A. This year I launched a book with my sister, Katia Narian Phillips titled ‘Self Care for the real world’. We would really like to go into schools with our book and help teenagers with self-care. We both had such a difficult time as teenagers time and we often hear from readers whose teenage children are reading their copies and really enjoying it.
Q. Where is your happy place?
A. I have a few that are my secrets in nature, but my home is my true happy place. It’s the place I can totally switch off and relax.
Q. How do you relax and switch off?
A. Usually a hot bath with aromatherapy oils and epsom salts, I always tailor the scents to suit my mood.
Music also plays a big part in helping me relax and once I’ve had a bath I try not to look at my phone again that evening.
Q. Book or Boxset – what are you reading/watching?
A. I just finished watching ‘End of the Fxxxing World’ and loved it and I’m just about to start ‘How to be human’ by the brilliant Ruby Wax
Q. Your bedtime routine?
A. My bedtime ritual is very important to me. I first ensure I have my bedroom all ready from when I get home, I make sure my clothes are neatly put away, lights dimmed and candles burning. After dinner I’ll have a bath and in to bed with a cup of mint tea and a book. It sounds so boring but I love it. I am out every evening this week and all I want to do is be in bed with my book!
