This week's guest is Deborah Johnson. With over 14 years experience as a beauty PR for the likes of some amazing brands - including makeup of the moment, Emolyne Cosmetics - Deborah also heads up PR of the family-run salon Simply Gorgeous, owned by her mum.
I was really looking forward to this conversation with Deborah; as a black woman with tattoos, she clearly stands out and holds her own when it comes to the UK beauty PR industry, but also, she doesn't do small talk. I can still remember the first time we met, a couple of years ago, and how I left that meeting thinking how cool she was - yep, probably a touch of a girl crush there! 
In this episode, we of course discuss her skincare - she refers to her skin as ashy so if you're feeling the same, you'll love hearing her glowing skin recommendations for face and body. But, I really wanted to see if I could get to what makes Deborah, Deborah, and I have to admit, there's a bit of a revelation in this chat. I certainly wasn't expecting Deborah's honesty to extend to her own personal experiences of finding herself and also how she has learned to deal with addiction. 
As Deborah herself quotes: "to err is human, to forgive, divine," and I am both humbled and grateful that she chose to open up with me.
If you're an introvert who needs to get comfortable with reaching out to others when you need help - this one's for you!
