When did you start your business & why?
I started Buftnails at the end of September this year, when I decided that I wanted a change of career to stay at home with my children after having baby number 4.
I qualified as a beauty therapist in 2003 from the London college of fashion and have dipped in and out of beauty since.
I started gel nail art back in 2012.
What’s been the highlight of running your own business so far?
I started both of these business’ as they’re things I really enjoy and love to do. I can work them around my family and life in a way that works best for us.
I also love the social side of it meeting lots of lovely people.
How do you organise your time?
Great question and always a work in progress.
I have agreed certain days and times with my husband that work for us both.
I make sure I always write my to dos on my phone which I find handy as always with me.
I also use my phone calendar and set alarms to remind me. I always set an alarm for the day before and an hour before.
What’s the biggest life lesson you want to pass down to your children?
The biggest thing I want for my children is for them to know and love Jesus.
I think if they have that then they have everything. It’s not about religion but about that real relationship.
I wish I had known him sooner, it would have saved me from a lot of heartache.
What do you wish you had more time for?
To sit and practice nail art designs.
I love love love doing them and could happily sit for hours. However my mummy’s boy loves loves loves being attached to me.
What’s does your ‘mum uniform’ comprise of?
I wish I was more glamorous like I used to be, however I’m a sucker for comfort.
My general get up consists of trainers with jeans or dresses. I love a fur coat if it’s not raining. Some shade of pastel hair and I generally like to wear makeup.
I love black, polka dots, stripes, leopard print, petite florals and pastel shades.
