Getting to know Jane through her work has been fun, she’s as equally excited as we are that there will be 10 new episodes of Sex & the City. She’s basically Carrie Bradshaw, living parallel lives with SJP. She lived in New York during the height of the shows success and spent her hard earned cash on Fendi baguette bags and Jimmy Choos, how fun is that? Jane also met the love of her life in a Meet Q situation, even more exciting.
Jane writes for various publications, she’s been in the beauty industry for over 30 years, a well respected journalist and BFF. In-between articles she found time to answer a few questions.
Fashion Icon: Vivienne Westwood for so very many reasons, (a). she designed my wedding dress; (b). she understands women’s real body shapes; (c). she is eccentric and a rebel so what’s not to love? I have met her so many times and she is a British gem.
Favorite Restaurant: Coal Office in Kings X – it does Israeli food to the highest ever standard.
Last Book Read: The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman – it’s about a group of elders living in a retirement home solving a murder and a lesson in never underestimating the experience of those older than you.
Current Beauty Routine: I love Barbara Sturm products at night – a great serum and moisturizing duo but I also adore Vintners Daughter. In the day I often pop on a bit of Amanda Harrington or James Read Tan and then a foundation, blush, mascara and lippie I have found I am going off eye shadows at the moment in favor of a full face “sheen” products I love including all and anything by Pat McGrath or Hourglass, their formulas are a step-above.
My Biggest Beauty Tip is keep it simple: There is nothing more beautiful than bare faced glowy skin and a big smile. My husband has always said I look better with little makeup and as I age I think he’s right on the money.
Last item purchased pre pandemic: It was a skirt I bought in New South Wales, Australia – in a town called Orange which was packed with interesting little boutiques and very big wineries – my kind of spot. It’s a full skirt of gingham with yellow flowers, it makes me so happy.
Plans for after the pandemic: To travel as much as I can and kiss and cuddle everyone.
A piece of clothing to live in forever: I think it has to be that wedding dress don’t you?!
