mid life career change


At 57, I was about to retire as an NHS Biomedical Scientist. Menopause had made my skin dry and irritated. I experimented with oils at home—and I found a formula that miraculously improved my skin. My daughter Sarah said: ‘Mom, you have to let other people try this!’ That’s why we launched Clockface Beauty in 2018. It has given me a new purpose.

I love working out at home, as I can fit them into my busy schedule. I use Davina McCall’s DVD, Power Box and Tone (£5.99, Amazon Prime). I am a big fan of boxing, as it has helped tone my upper arms. Plus, it has different levels so it’s accessible to people of all ages.

hydrating haircare

As I got older, my hair became dry and lifeless. I dye my gray roots blonde every six weeks, which can strip away excess moisture. That’s why I use hydrating argan oil. My favorite product is Argan Magic Shampoo and Conditioner (£19.99 for the set, TK Max), which leaves my hair soft and shiny.

anti stress oil

I use my Asakuki 300ml Essential Oil Diffuser (£24.99, every evening and in my office to keep stress away. The smell is so powerful when it comes to relaxation and I’ve been making my own blends for years. I use Bergamot, Rosemary, and Sweet Orange in a variety of calming scents.

My daughter, Sarah, is a stylist, so she is my fashion guru. When I worked in the hospital, I used to wear plain clothes, but Sarah encouraged me to push the envelope of style. I didn’t think I could wear something like a mint velvet leopard print dress, but now I think: ‘Yeah, you can wear it!’ I feel a lot more confident.
