Amy BCustomer Care Guru
Tell us a bit about yourself Amy?
Born and bred in Suffolk, I have worked for SBC for well over 12 years, so part of the furniture really! I trained as a Beauty therapist at West Suffolk College and had various salon based jobs before joining the company. I spent a year traveling Australia back in 2006-07, and loved it, but missed home and normality. I met my now husband in 2008 and married in 2009 locally. I only work part time now as have a very full-on 3 year old son Tomas, who keeps me busy the rest of the time!
What’s your area of expertise?
A little bit of everything...
Do you have a personal beauty tip to share?
Sorry, but I am quite a stickler for early to bed (the girls in the office think we're crazy as by 8.30, our house it is all quiet with light off) and also drinking plenty of water! You won't often see me without a bottle.
What is your favourite SBC product?
Hard to know where to begin here as I love so many – but it has to be the Vitamin ACE Day & Night Cream, it has transformed my skin!
Do you have a real beauty no-no or bug bear?
Too much make-up and bad application! It really isn't necessary.
What goes on in your average day at SBC?
No day is ever the same here, ploughing through emails and responding to customers, checking orders to ensure they go out correctly. Time really does fly and the to-do-list grows hourly!
Desert Island Disc?
I have a lot of albums that I love, but have amazing memories of KONK by the Kooks from my travels in Australia.
Hard to choose – but pancakes with crème fraiche, maple syrup and black cherries (my husband makes the best ones ever!)
SBC is based in Suffolk, what is your favourite Suffolk spot?
It would be a day with family and a picnic, Tomas loves them - but a hard decision between a day in the Forrest with our bikes, or a day on the beach. We have both only a short drive away.
Describe your perfect day?
Sunday with my family, we are always up and about early so a nice breakfast followed by walking our dog Kenton preferably in the sun on the beach - we are spoilt in Suffolk by having so many lovely ones.
