How much do you earn?

Gym membership, pay-as-you-go classes or both?

Class Pass, and some pay-as-you-go – I’m a big fan of barre and Pilates at Heartcore and Louisa Drake on Mortimer Street.

£50 per month on facials

£100 per month on physio for back pain

£20 on waxing

£60 on make up/toiletries

£20 on prescriptions and supplements (omega-3, evening primrose oil, pain relief)

What is the most extravagant thing you’ve ever done for your wellbeing?

Spent £500 on Skin Laundry facials – I had some serious chin acne going on and I would have paid anything at that stage!

If you don’t work out regularly and eat healthily, how do you feel?

If I’ve had a weekend of not exercising and eating too much/unhealthy foods, I often wake up on Monday morning with a lack of energy and feeling very guilty!
