What does beauty means to you? Beauty is when there is a balance within that keeps you grounded in your authenticity while having pure intentions.
The woman I admire most is: Ooh I admire soo many, but all my loyal clients have been such a huge inspiration for me and without them I wouldn’t be able to expand my brand as they are my biggest cheerleaders and always have my back.
On my bucket list is: To go spend some time in Denmark, that is where the original Henningsen company started since the 1600s. Family history has always been very important to my family. I think it would be so inspiring to meet the family and to get to learn more of the history for the designs of the jewelry line that H&CO will be launching.
If I could wake up tomorrow in any hotel, it would be: Jade Mountain St. Lucia
Live/Work/Play: Sydney, Paris or New York? Paris will always have my heart
Favorite hour of the day? Golden hour, I live for a good sunset
The beauty essential you have to pry out of my hands is: No beauty product is worth anything if you don’t start with hydrated skin and healthy hair. My secret to hydration and purifying the body is ginger lemon H20 that you drink first thing on an empty stomach when you wake up. It always starts with inner beauty. I love how hydrating Madame Gabriela lipsticks are and instantly came obsessed with them once I found out there is manuka honey in them, which is so healing! What you put on your body also affects you inwardly so clean beauty is very important to me.
What I am reading now: Honestly, I wish I had the time to read more, I usually listen to podcasts or audibles while traveling. I recently read Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek and I always love to pick up a good Vogue to be visually inspired.
My first kiss was: strategic as I had him pull around the back alley so we wouldn't get caught. I grew up with 3 older brothers and a very protective father and didn’t know what would happen if they saw us kissing.
The lips I remember most are: Younger Sophia Loren had such amazing natural lips
