Featured as one of the Top 10 podcasts by Harpers Bazaar and a must listen by Stylist, Glamour, Good Housekeeping and Vogue Italy, Outspoken Beauty is the UK's most honest, straight talking beauty and wellbeing podcast that uses beauty as a way to start powerful conversations. It's hosted by beauty columnist and broadcaster Nicola Bonn.
As well as great product recommendations and tips expect conversations with an array of experts, specialists and inspiring humans that cover everything from the joy of lipstick, skincare and supplements to debates around ageism, diversity, self pleasure and challenging the status quo.
This is a podcast for anyone who finds joy in beauty, who wants to feel great about themselves in a way that is so much more than just skin deep and who wants the confidence to find beauty in who they are rather than what society expects of them. Prepare to be challenged, informed and inspired!

Great Skin Zero Waste: Ren Clean Skincare X Outspoken Beauty
*This episode is in partnership with Ren Clean Skincare*
In this thought provoking episode I get to know the amazing David Delport who is the Global Ambassador for Ren Clean Skincare. David has worked with a number of beauty brands, but as you'll hear, when he found Ren it was the start of a love affair that has lasted for 13 years and counting. David, who is passionate about the environment and sustainability found a kindred spirit in Ren and during the episode he not only tells us about the incredible and pioneering work that REN are doing in this field (they are going to be zero waste by the end of 2021) but also gives us tips about the little things that we can do to help our planet.
David and I share a real passion for REN and as well as chatting through how the brand is leading the way in sustainability, we chat through some of our favourite products and how they make us feel.
This episode is for a me a really important one. As consumers we're becoming more and more aware of the effect our actions are having on the planet and how crucial it is that we act now. Brands like Ren are showing that it it is possible to enjoy luxury beauty product whilst helping the environment and not only are they paving the way for other beauty brands, but for the likes of me and you as well.
Jennifer Niven: My Beauty Habits
In this episode of My Beauty Habits I get to know New York Times and International best-selling author Jennifer Nivens. Jen is perhaps best known for her book "All The Bright Places" which was turned into a movie for Netflix and during the podcast we chat about that as well as her newest (and equally brilliant). novel Breathless.
Jen also gives us an insight into her relationship and how her books mirror many aspects of her personal life. She also chats about her glamorous mother and we delve into what beauty means to her and the part that it plays in her life. If that wasn't enough, we somehow get onto the subject of losing our virginity and vibrators. Perhaps one to save for when the kids are tucked up in bed ;0)
Jen is incredibly funny and honest and I felt like I'd known her for years even though this was our first time chatting. I thoroughly recommend Jen's books and Instagram page @Jenniferniven.

Lisa Snowdon: My Beauty Habits
In this episode of My Beauty Habits I catch up with lovely Lisa Snowdon. Lisa and I used to work for the same radio company and bonded over our early starts and mutual love of beauty! (I remember constantly being in awe of how effortlessly glamorous she was at 6am.)
These days we've both put our radio days behind us and Lisa is busy doing all sorts of brilliant projects including a regular fashion slot on This Morning and producing excellent beauty and wellbeing content via her own channels.
During the episode Lisa shares so many of her tips, tricks, rituals and habits. We cover everything from skincare to showers to the daily routines that keep Lisa feeling happy and grounded. What I love about Lisa is that she's has always had a real passion for sharing beauty and wellbeing tips and she talks about them with an energy that is catching. If you're feeling a bit lacklustre at the moment you're going to love this. Lisa will put a spring in your step :0)
Barbara Daly: The First Super-Star Makeup Artist
In this episode I have the honour of getting to know the iconic makeup artist Barbara Daly.
Barbara was the first makeup artist to become a star in her own right and her story is one of tenacity and never taking no for an answer.
Barbara takes us with her on her journey from dreaming of doing Hollywood movie makeup to working with the BBC, creating the makeup for Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" and how it felt to do Princess Diana's wedding makeup.
Barbara's story had me gripped and I loved every second of this interview. Get ready to meet one of the greats!
