Q&A with Luxury Loving Me!

11th August 2015
Posted by: Bridget Okeeffe

Ladies,

Let’s get one thing straight. I’m not a food “expert”. BUT I know healthy and I love life. I’ve always been fascinated by good healthy food and I urge friends and loved ones and now clients too to find healthy meal options. But what about me? What do I like? What do I eat? I’m asked these questions a lot, so I wanted to put my money where my mouth is and share what I eat and love…(inspired by the lovely ladies at Goop!)

Go-to weeknight recipe?
Lebanese food! Yum! Tabouleh is my favourite followed closely behind by the very difficult to make Kibbeh nayeh.

First job?
My first ‘real’ job was delegate liaison for a corporate events company in Southwark…. *yawn.

Next job?
I have my dream job right now, I hope I never have to change it… although some exciting things are in the pipeline, watch this space! (read more about my luxury beauty passion right here)
