Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place interview with Kirsty Young
It’s certainly felt like royal family mania at the moment and amongst babies and that Camilla documentary I LOVED the Queen’s Green Planet with David Attenborough where Queenie and Sir David took a stroll around Buckingham Palace gardens looking at the different plants and trees planted there. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Queen as animated, she came across really human and far less stuffy than I imagined.
As I mentioned earlier on, I had the great privilege of interviewing Mary Greenwell which inspired me to seek out her fragrance range, sadly now discontinued. From Mary’s line, I chose ‘Plum‘ – her first fragrance featuring notes of white floral (my favourites) tuberose, fruit to name but a few. This is a very elegant, grown-up scent which I can totally imagine Mary wearing. You can tell that this perfume was made for the premium market as the bottle, particularly the lid is extremely weighty. I really want to try Mary’s Fire next.
I have a secret place that I like to go to find discounted makeup and whilst a lady never tells, I can say that this shop has the best collection of Cover Girl cosmetics (Maybelline here the UK) I’ve recently been coveting the Lash Effect mascara, the thin, plastic wand helps to really dig into those lash roots and help lengthen and curl my lashes. I’ve been teaming a basic makeup look comprising of just one swipe of mascara with my favourite lip stain/balm of the moment ‘Crush‘ from Glossier.
I’ve waxed lyrical about my love for Olay skincare and as the slightly warmer weather sets in I’ve been using their Complete BB Cream in Fair, the colour blends into the skin, matching the pigment and tone, though I must add this formula is slightly on the warm side. I like how much of a healthy glow it gives me whilst evening out my skintone. It’s perfect for everyday use when you don’t want to wear a full coverage base.
