I’m sitting writing this post at the hairdressers. The morning after I met beauty guru and all-round fabulous woman Zoe Foster Blake.
Of all the possible bad timings that could occur in my hair-colouring maintenance cycle, this was the worst.
On Tuesday night my roots were boasting 5 weeks and 6 days of re-growth. Oh, the horror.
And instead of keeping quiet about the said state of affairs of my roots (like any self-respecting woman would), I confessed all in a nervous vomit of words when I arrived at Zoe’s Brisbane hotel. About five seconds after shaking her hand.
I may have even bent over and parted my hair to show her. Oh, my giddy aunt.
Having succeeded in royally embarrassing myself, I figured the only way was up.
Zoe was in my ‘hood to launch her fourth and latest novel, The Wrong Girl (Penguin) and I was hosting an “in-conversation” with her at that event.
Before we headed to Ecco where about 50 Zoe fans were waiting to meet her and be considerably less embarrassing than I was, I sat down with Zoe in her hotel room to talk about her three babies.
No, don’t go running off to Woman’s Day in the hope of sharing a big scoop. She’s not expecting triplets when she gives birth in May.
She is giving birth to one real baby (to husband Hamish Blake) but she’s also released the aforementioned book and has her own skincare range, Go-To Skincare, coming out April 1.
That’s a pretty intense start to 2014 in anyone’s book. Check out the video and see what Zoe has to say.
Very important details
You can find Zoe’s book at all bookstores, plus available for download on your iPad and Kindle. Or buy the physical book here online.
Zoe’s skincare range will be available from April 1 – online only (If you read this before 10am Thursday March 6 then hop on over to Zoe’s blog for details on how you could get some on your face earlier than April 1 … there’s a limited number of pre-sale).
So, tell me … have you read any or all of Zoe’s books? Favourite? Keen to try the skincare?
