As Amy is a self confessed make up lover, qualified beautician and of course, beauty salon owner, it seemed only right to ask about her favourite products and beauty tips. Skincare wise, she swears by blogger favourite Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Cleanser and recently, she's been really impressed by the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit in shade "Literally". Amy says she always wears good primer - her current favourite is Smashbox Photo Finish, and a foundation/moisturiser with a SPF to protect her skin. She believes in switching up her skincare routine every 6 months and uses a face mask two to three times a week.
As we moved onto the subject of Amy's autobiography, she said that although it took a long time to get right, she loved the experience and believes she's created a reall feel-good read. She opted for a ghost writer (us bloggers love a celeb who is honest about having one!) who knew her well and helped write Amy's story in her voice. The main aim of her book is to inspire her female fans - "If I can do it, so can you" she said, and hopes for her fans to make their dreams come true through hard work.
She also has a very hands-on approach to her fashion line, and told stories of her buying visits to China in search of the perfect lace for her dresses. It was also interesting to know that the majority of her clothing is produced here in the UK.
Amy's best sellers are the Katie and Belle dresses. Amy Childs clothing is available in size 8 up to 18 and her customers range from 12 up to 60 in age. Her clothing is available online on her website, in her boutique in Brentwood and via Dorothy Perkins.
A massive thank you to BB's for the amazing lunch, The Oracle for having us and of course Amy for her time and our "gorge" goody bags!
