In this week’s blog post we’re giving you the chance to get to know Madame Wax’s founder, Adele Sweet, a little bit better. For those following her already, you’ll know Adele loves a good Tweet but if you’ve not checked out her 140 character musings already you can follow her at: www.twitter.com/MadameWax.
Over to Adele:
What’s the best thing about your job? Being self-employed and choosing when I want to work. Having said that, I work round the clock and all too often there’s not enough hours in a day! I certainly work harder now than I ever did for an employer. I’m so lucky though to have wonderful, loyal customers that I look forward to coming into work each day for, as well as finding out all the stories of what they’ve been up to.
Worst thing about your job? Being self-employed (ironically)! No holiday or sick pay, no guarantee of a wage. Would I change it? Most certainly not!
Your desert island disc? Anything 80’s & 90’s.
Your desert island book? Twilight, I am 100% obsessed.
What’s your ‘me time’ treat? I absolutely HATE washing my hair so I often get it done in a hairdresser’s. Totally lazy, I know, but such a wonderful self indulgence.
Favourite place? Easy. Home.
What makes you smile? So many things really. I feel I’m such a positive person, but the first thing that springs to mind are of my two pups Sam (a rottie) & Alfie (a lab). They’re so cute, I swear. I’m in love with them.
Favourite place to eat in Cardiff? Bill’s, which is on the Hayes.
Favourite place to drink in Cardiff? Hmmm I love a cocktail so I’m going to say The Park Plaza – they do the best!
Guilty pleasure? I’m a total junk food addict and am always trying to go on a healthy eating plan. Never lasts for more than 3 weeks at a push. I’ll start tomorrow… 🙂
What couldn’t you live without? My moisturiser oh and my husband, he drives me crazy… I love to hate him (that’s our little saying).
