A DAY IN THE LIFE OF
I am Leeds born and bred and very passionate about my city. Four years ago I was bankrupt after my first company failed and it was then that I decided to give things another go, launching House of coco magazine.
Q1. First things first, your alarm goes off… What is your first move? I actually don’t have an alarm, I allow myself to wake up when my body wants to Then, I do morning pages. At night time I put my phone on airplane mode so that when I wake up in the morning I don’t have any distractions and don’t get sidetracked by notifications. Morning pages is basically a brain dump, so you just write anything and everything that is on your mind onto three sides of paper. It really

to keep everyone’s interest.
Q1. Do you listen to music throughout the day, if so whom can’t you get enough of at the moment? I do! I am loving J.P Cooper right now, I am guilty of listening to his album on repeat for hours!
Q2. Do you make time for breakfast? Always. I’m happiest when eating so I never skip a meal ha!
Q2. Any exciting events coming up in the House of Coco calendar? Yes, there is so much coming up. I get messages from people every single day asking how they can join #TeamCoco and up until now the only way to join was if they were a writer and when were recruiting. However, I am soon launching #TeamCocoGang which is for everyone! By joining the gang you will get exclusive invitations to events across the country, panel shows, exclusive content, podcasts and money can’t buy opportunities. I see House of Coco as a platform for my team to live their best lives and by launching #TeamCocoGang it means I can now spread that motto to the masses. People can drop their email here http://tinyletter.com/laurabartlett to find out more.
Q3. What do you get up to for fun after work? What I do for work is such blurred lines that every day is fun anyway, I don’t feel the need to escape ‘work’ to have fun. However, I do love frequenting the local bar near my house (Banyan) and people watching in their beer garden whilst drinking copious amounts of white wine!

CATCH UP WITH
CEO of Attracta Beauty Awards Attracta Courtney is an international make-up artist and beauty professional who has spent the last two decades establishing herself as one of the most respected names in the industry. Attracta’s mission is to champion slow beauty. A term that we think deserves a little bit more attention.
“when we slow down we connect more to our real self and that for me is the ultimate beauty statement”. Slow beauty is an outlook that we are really supporting at the moment. Slow beauty encompasses how important it is to embrace your natural self by taking a moment to block out the noise and reflect on what we do have. It is about respecting yourself and allowing products to work over a period of time rather than expecting overnight perfection. Slow beauty is about not comparing yourself to social media and understands it can be easy to be disheartened by what looks like perfection on our explore feeds on Instagram. Attracta believes that “when we slow down we connect more to our real self and that for me is the ultimate beauty statement”. Attracta advocates slow beauty within her annual beauty awards, which she showcases and awards innovative products that she knows deliver results time and time again. Makeup, gadget & tools, health and wellbeing, fragrance are the categories, which can be represented at the Attracta beauty awards.

Slow beauty is about stepping back, cutting out the noise and appreciating all that is beautiful about you; the people that you meet daily and those you love.
