We took to the streets to find Notts' best dressed...

Eyebrows can determine whether you look happy or sad, confused or angry. They’re like another form of body language. I’m an eyebrow artist – I’ve been doing this for 22 years now, way before the brow trend hit. I try and empower women to embrace their natural beauty; I’m not an Instagram eyebrow person, nothing really hard like the scouse brows that you find here in England. 

I quite like little cities. I come to Nottingham two or three times a year to spend time with my husband’s family. I come from Melbourne, and Nottingham reminds me of the little villages I’ve lived in. Throughout my twenties, I constantly travelled to Greece for holidays, and just before I turned thirty, I decided to pack everything up and move there. It was the scariest thing I’ve ever done and my parents were horrified, but I did it and it was great. That’s where I met my husband.

We currently live in a small city in Switzerland called Lausanne. It’s really easy to get around, and has some really good coffee shops. It’s very similar to Nottingham, actually. Melbourne will always be home for me, but Lausanne has become my second home. Our child was born there so we have an extra connection to it. I'm quite proud to say I'm Greek Australian, but really I'm from Australia. I don't have a hard time connecting to a place even though I'm not living in it. 

We have a favour to ask…

LeftLion is Nottingham’s meeting point for information about what’s going on in our city, from the established organisations to the grassroots. We want to keep what we do free to all to access, but increasingly we are relying on revenue from our readers to continue. Can you spare a few quid each month to support us?
