10 minutes with Nadia Sawalha
That there is no such thing as perfection , one can strive for excellence ( personally I choose not to and am fine with good enough !!) but never perfection because it doesn’t exist .
I am also passionate about promoting body acceptance, we don’t all have to be stunningly beautiful! I try to promote the message to Stop the stinking thinking! I only follow accounts that make me feel better about women and the wider world !
I often post pics of me looking "fucking shocking" as my Sister Dina puts it! And I'm always blown away by how many messages I get from women saying these pics help them feel a little better about themselves ! I love that !
You meet a lot of people through your work - both famous and not - which one person stands out as the one that has had the biggest influence on you?
It has to be Donna May !! Have you not seen her incredible make up bag ! Its even got me organised !
You are always very honest with your social media content and on Loose Women - we love this about you but has it ever got you into trouble?
Every single day !!! Ha ha ha !!!
We love to see your cooking programmes - can you share a fool safe recipe that will make even the worst cooks amongst us look brilliant at our next dinner party?
My recipe for Pavlova always impresses everyone and the thing is that its incredibly easy! Biggest con on the planet! Make sure you do everything I say though!
Do you miss hugs and personal interaction and where will be the first place you book a trip to once we have more freedom to move around?Round to my mum and dads who live next door!! I want to give them huge hugs and sloppy kisses!!!
Are you a spender or a saver? What was the last thing you spent over £50 on??
A very naughty trip to Ikea ...went in for a candle and came out with a load of shit for £80!!!
Is music important to you? Which song evokes the most memories for you - the one that stops you in your tracks when you hear it!?
My daughter Maddie's song Broken Hearts...It should be the next Bond Movie theme tune! Honestly its bloody brilliant!
Listen to Maddie's music on Spotify Here
Ok - lets talk fashion and Beauty...Who's personal style do you really admire?
Donna May is pretty damn cool !! Have you ever met her?
What is the latest item you purchased for your makeup bag?
Iconic concealer - it’s the dogs bollocks!
Is there one product you have used since your teens that you just can't let go?
Clinique Aromatics is the only perfume I’ve ever used! I bought my first bottle when I was 17! That and my eyelash curlers!
What is your favourite lip colour? Brand and shade?
Iconic lip oil… the red one!
What is your desert island product that you couldn't live without?

Finally, as we are now in lockdown again - although it does feel slightly different from the first time, is there one piece of advice you could give our readers that helps you when you are stressed and anxious?
Walk lots, put your ear-pods in and dance like no one is watching, I do this in the laundry room! Meditation, and pretend yoga (ie a bit of a stretch !!!) work wonders too! Also if I feel really panicky I use rescue remedy!
