I created the cosmetics & skincare store I dreamed existed, but I couldn’t find anywhere. The place I could get everything I needed, from French pharmacy products to Korean brands, high fashion fragrance and clinical skincare from Switzerland. It’s called Chemistry. I wanted it to feel like the library of beauty, and I think it does. It’s the second most fun adventure I have embarked on  – so far. The first was marriage and four kids. (still in progress, and completely awesome.)
