What I’m loving right now Just looking up at a vast, glorious blue sky makes me happy. When it goes on forever, it seems full of endless possibilities and places to go. It reminds me how big our world really is.

Beauty icon My grandmother. She placed importance on clean hair and skin, neat nails and tidy clothes. She taught me that it was a sign of respect for myself and others. I also admire Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.


Rule I live by Control the controllable.

Top beauty tips Use active ingredients such as ESK Reverse C Serum (eskcare.com, $95) moisturiser and sunscreen in the morning, then hydroxy acid and vitamin A at night. Drinking water also helps, and a bit of fake tan keeps me feeling sun-kissed.

Must-have beauty product I particularly love Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel (chemistwarehouse.com.au, $19.69). A little goes a long way and my skin drinks it up, especially my feet.

Favourite exercise routine I love F45: loud music, no time to get bored, and it changes regularly. I go with my daughter, so we motivate each other. However, we just got a puppy, so long walks are about to become my norm.
