About Belinda...

Love about work: I love having a job that I love, with people who love doing what they do and doing it well!! Cappuccino (environmentally gorgeous, of course) with cinnamon and nutmeg

Favourite things: smell of new books, taste of Montezuma Geranium chocolate, sound of my children giggling, touch of velvet, sight of snow

Don't really like: Celery, cold toes, turning a Land Rover over on a remote Scottish hillside and cleaning the porridge pan

Outside of work I like: Snowball fights (seasonal), singing Mozart, gliding

My favourite essences at the moment are: Cheetah from the Wild Earth Animal Essences for getting things done really speedily in the office. Star Ruby (Alaskan) for amazing focus. Sleep Easy candle from Indigo - helps my children zzzzzz - hurrah!

Background: Spent 12 years in corsets and big frocks as a stage actress. Worked with 5 - 15 year olds in Shakespeare in schools' projects. PA in Fine Arts auction house in London - surrounded by Chagalls and Kandinsky.... heaven. Ridden elephants in Thailand. Helped organise Buddhist Peace Convention in Geneva.

Best Quote: "A great revolution of character in just a single individual will help achieve a change in the destiny of a nation, and further, will cause a change in the destiny of humankind." Daisaku Ikeda, Buddhist philosopher and writer

About Angela: Soul Sister and infectious giggler
