Feelgood factor: Scorpio
Friday 21 July 1995
I do something called 'layering' - when you cover yourself in cream and potions and you're supposed to waft around in the smell of their perfume. Jean Paul Gaultier's stuff is really terrific - the cream is beautiful and really thick. I come from the Isle of Man, where the water is really soft, so I find London water makes my skin very dry and I need to use a lot of moisturiser and oils. I pour his bubble bath and gel into the water. I sit down and drink a cup of coffee while the water is running.
Usually I read while I'm having a good soak. I'm a real nutter about science fantasy novels.I never spend that long, rarely more than 15 minutes or so, before I get out. Then I rub down with a huge bath towel, cover myself in moisturiser and wrap myself in a bathrobe. I pamper myself.
If I'm feeling really self-indulgent, I put on some Gaultier perfume. Then I curl up in my robe and get on with some serious letter writing."
