Let’s be honest, Christmas is going to be a bit different this year. When I was thinking about some of the things that mean most to me at Christmas, watching Love Actually is at the top of the list. Taking us behind the scenes today is the Hair and Make-up director from the film, Graham Johnston.


Graham’s CV reads like a list of some of the biggest blockbuster films of the last 20 years. We talk Bridget Jones’ Diary, Spiceworld and Trainspotting alongside touching on my favourite Christmas movie.


Here are a few of the things we discuss in this episode that you may wish to take a look at.

As well as touching on her journey from the beginning, including tales of working with celebrities and pop-stars like Kylie Minogue, one of my most memorable moments in 2020 was being part of a fantastic NHS Morale Boost that Caroline organised and I wanted her to tell you about it. We also touch on her longstanding relationship with the charity Look Good, Feel Better, a charity I also volunteer for and hold very close to my heart. This episode was kindly sponsored by one of my staple dry shampoo saviours, Batiste.

    Creating Peaches and Cream: Part 2 with Nicola Smith

    33:36

    Today you’re going to meet one of my oldest friends, Nicola Smith, known to many as one of the co-founders of Peaches and Cream. What you might not know is that everything I know about make-up I learned at Peaches, where Kate and Nicola took me on as a make-up artist while I lived in Liverpool for University. This is such a long and personal story for us so I’ve decided to split it into two parts. Today in part two, Nicola tells us about how the brand evolved from a make-up landmark in Liverpool to a global empire online. Here are a few of the things we discuss in this week’s episode that you may wish to take a look at.

    Creating Peaches and Cream: Part 1 with Kate Matthews (nee Donnelly)

    31:12

    Today you’re going to meet one of my best friends, Kate Donnelly, known to many as one of the co-founders of Peaches and Cream. What you might not know is that everything I know about make-up I learned at Peaches, where Kate and Nicola took me on as a make-up artist while I lived in Liverpool for University. This is such a long and personal story for us, so I’ve decided to split it into two parts. In part one, Kate tells us how she and Nicola met at college, and how their journey to creating a worldwide beauty brand began. Later this week, Nicola and I are going to delve into part two and share how a small shop in Garston, Liverpool took on a whole new city centre premises and evolved into a global phenomenon. Here are a few of the things we discuss in this week’s episode that you may wish to take a look at.

    Finding beauty in home comforts with Laura Jackson

    30:37

    Given that we’re set to spend more time at home this autumn, I invited Laura Jackson to talk home comforts on the podcast this week. I think if we can bring some magic to simple rituals, like making an evening meal more special, we can find smalls ways to get by over the coming weeks and months. Laura is well known for her presenting roles, but her passion for food led her to launch her own supper club with her friend Alice Levine, and create her own podcast dedicated to hosting. So today, I’ve asked Laura to join me and share some of her expertise in the hope that we can find some comfort in the ordinary. As always, there’s some beauty chat along the way too.Here are a few of the things we discuss that you might want to take a look at…Laura on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/iamlaurajacksonHoste London: https://www.instagram.com/Hoste.londonHOSTEing Laura Jackson: https://hosteing-laura-jackson.simplecast.comRound to Ours cookbook: https://www.waterstones.com/book/round-to-ours/alice-levine/laura-jackson/9781849499590 See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
