Article written by: Nicky Kinnaird, founder of beauty emporium Space NK – Nicky “takes a good hard look at herself and finds that beauty is a balancing act

The pursuit of beauty can become


Nicky discusses how she looks after herself and her body and how to balance wanting to feel good about yourself without self obsession and the endless quest for ”beauty’ (whatever that is!).

I work to live my life in balance, to act beautiful and know when less is more…and when less is simply less.

“I was a hippy teenager. I had dreadlocks and wore longjohns”




“I always felt like I wasn’t totally accepted, like I was on the outside looking in. That’s probably what gave me a long career, because if I had been fully immersed, on a personal level but also by the industry, I might have burnt out really fast.”



“I don’t do it anymore, but if you read anything about yourself, it really messes with you”
