Coffee with Lydia

I wanted to go beyond the bio and share a little more about each of the beautiful people who make The Parlour so fabulous! First up is Lydia, over coffee she answered these questions for me;

What are your Top 5 must have hair products?

  1. Shu Uemura Dry Cleaner
  2. Kerastase Bain Chronologiste
  3. Kerastase Masque Chronologiste
  4. Kerastase Nectar Thermique
  5. Kerastase Initialiste

Dream vacation?

I’ve never been on a cruise so that’s definitely on my bucket list. Most likely Mediterranean because it would get me back to Europe. (She’s an avid traveller so I was interested in her answer for this one. Ask her about her travels one of these days!)

Top 3 Wardrobe Staples.

  1. All black everything
  2. Watch
  3. Ankle boots (always in black)

Tea or Coffee? And how do you like it?

If I had to pick one drink forever? Hmmm, a skinny vanilla latte-lactose free.

Style Icon?

No one in particular, I just gather inspiration from various style accounts.

Favourite book?

Can’t think of just one but I like to keep it light.

Beauty Secret?

Exfoliation (she uses the Renaissance glove -so do I, if you don’t have one get one!) and lots of water. Keep it simple.


I have a conversation with me, myself and I. I started meditation recently but that’s new, so…

What do you for exercise? Wellness?

I try to get enough greens. On all my days off I make a huge smoothie full of kale and spinach, like so much that you can still taste the greens.

Here’s the recipe: Fill blender with green stuff, add 1 banana and a little bit of apple or pear or a few berries, add water and BLEND!

Get to the gym.

Guilty pleasure on Netflix?

I’m looking for a new series to watch. I love documentaries and movies and hate watching the same thing twice.

So, there you have it, a little more about Lydia! Follow along with us and meet the whole crew.
