    Rachel Khoo: My Beauty Habits

    Rachel Khoo: My Beauty Habits

    In this episode of #MyBeautyHabits I'm joined by the brilliant cook, writer and broadcaster Rachel Khoo.

    In 2006, Rachel, who loves an adventure, gave up a job in PR, moved to Paris (with no knowledge of French) and did a patisserie course at Le Cordon Bleu. Fast forward a few years and she had forged an incredibly exciting career with her own cookery show called The Little Paris Kitchen, and a number of published books.

    Fast forward to now and Rachel is living in Sweden and has just made a new series from her Mum-in-law's kitchen whilst in lockdown. (I honestly don't know how she did it!). In this episode we talk about her career, the challenges of making her own TV show from home and of course all about her beauty habits. Rachel is a lipstick lover and is fascinated with skincare. There are loads of fab recommendations :0)

    -Rachel's new series Simple Pleasures is at 9pm and 9:30pm on Thursdays on Food Network and dplay.

    -You can download her charity e-cookbook which has all the recipes from the series at :

    Courtney Act: Be True To Yourself

    Courtney Act: Be True To Yourself

    In this episode I'm joined by one of the first artists in the world to show their gender fluidity...the super talented Courtney Act.
    Courtney, who was one of the stars of Season 6 of RuPaul's Drag Race, is not only a spectacular performer but is incredibly eloquent and passionate and we have a wonderfully honest chat about her childhood, gender fluidity, identity and of course beauty and what it means to both Courtney and Shane.
    I loved getting to know Courtney so intimately and can't wait for you to do the same.
    Courtney's show Fluid is coming to the UK in Spring 2021. You can buy tickets here http://courtneyact.com/fluid/

    Dr Sam Bunting: All About Flawless Brightly

    Dr Sam Bunting: All About Flawless Brightly

    I'm taking a week off #MyBeautyHabits to have an in depth conversation with Dr Sam about her new Flawless Brightly Serum. So many of you have been in touch with questions about how to use the serum and what the ingredients will do for you and Dr Sam has all the answers. As you know, I'm a huge fan of Sam's and I have been incredibly impressed with this serum so thought it would be interesting to have Sam on to demystify it for us.
    Later on I review a fabulous mascara, some incredible neon eyeliners, my new favourite moisturiser and a sumptuous eye cream.
    Remember you can always get in touch with me by Doing via my Instagram @OutspokenBeautyNicola and do join the private Facebook Community which is now called The Outspoken.

    Brands mentioned:
    Dr Sam Bunting

    Ateh Jewel: Make It Happen

    Ateh Jewel: Make It Happen

    Get ready for an episode that will uplift, inspire and energise you. My guest is the force of nature that it Ateh Jewel.
    Ateh, who has been challenging racism and prejudice throughout her 20 year career as a beauty journalist, producer and entrepreneur, talks about what it feels like to live with racism in your everyday life and how it has affected so many aspects of her career. She is using her voice right now as she always has done, to help instigate change.
    We also talk about being a mother, having a true and uninhibited passion for beauty and wellbeing. (The way that Ateh describes this love is almost poetic) and Ateh's business and mission to create foundation that makes women of colour glow rather than dampening down and mattifying their skin like to many current formulations do.
    Ateh is funny, ambitious, intelligent and is using her voice to make change. She's the perfect Outspoken Beauty guest and you're going to love her xx

A must listen 😀

During lockdown I haven’t been able to work my normal job as a beauty therapist and event hostess. I’m working at Tesco doing the Dot.com shopping (picking everyone’s online orders) it’s a 4am start and Nicola has been with me every step of the way! It’s made my job a pleasure and I’ve enjoyed every minute of listening 😊I’ve nearly listened to every episode and I’ll be gutted when I’m finished! Thank you Nicola 💞

Show notes?

Would be really helpful for you to add the products and recommendations to the show notes, especially with some of the lock down interviews over the phone it can be difficult to make out brand names.

Supa dupa podcast

I absolutely love this podcast. I am the same age as Nicola Bonn and everything she says I can really relate to! Nivea sun cream all over your face in the 90s, body shop bronzing pearls, fake tans that left you streaky and smelt of biscuits! I have only just discovered the podcast so I have lots to catch upon. I listen to 2-3 per day. What will I do when I catch up to the current podcast and there is only 1 per week?!
