I have been lucky enough to know Katie for many years and I was absolutely delighted when she asked me to present on stage with her at The Ideal Home show at Christmas London’s Olympia.


Katie’s stage show was focusing on how to feel confident within yourself. Katie also showed the audience how to wear sequins and sparkles in different ways for the Christmas season.

For my part in the show I gave my top tips on make-up for Christmas parties, Katie and I picked a lucky audience member to come up on stage for a mini make-over! I was using XIP Professional make-up as they have some gorgeous products that are ideal to give you a golden glow under the mistletoe.

Katie was also promoting her latest book Confidence The Secret which is available to buy from December 29th, but you can pre order now. In the book Katie shares her experiences on her journey to becoming happier and braver than ever- and shows how you can achieve the confidence you never thought possible. An absolute must read and a great present for anyone you know who would benefit from learning how to feel more confident.
