What is your skincare routine before or after a flight?

I am not afraid of smearing oil all over my face. I love Kate Somerville’s Dilo Oil and Tarte’s Pure Maracuja Oil. They soak right in.

How do you relax on holiday?

Holidays with kids are not particularly relaxing; it is more about staying active and trying new things. We are heading to Mammoth Mountain in California for a family ski weekend soon.  When I am working in Canada, we love to road trip. We recently drove to Montreal and took in all the sights. The kids loved it!

What do you always have in your handbag?

Well luckily the Mezzi handbag that I designed comes with its own phone charger. So I just throw in lip gloss, sunscreen, crayons and lollipops.
