Tipped as “one to watch” by Radio 1’s Peter Robinson and Huw Stephens, Jenn D released her debut single ‘Lose it’ – a catchy, bass-laden dance floor hit – on November 18 this year. Previously the singer for now-defunct electro-pop band Soft Toy Emergency, Jenn decided to go solo and was quickly snapped up by AATW Records last summer. She is now working non-stop to get her unique sound to the eardrums of the masses.
Having had her talent spotted by Channel 4 producers, Jenn has already had two of her demos used in hit TV show Made in Chelsea. The release of her album – on which she has teamed up with established producers Xenomania (The Saturdays), TMS (Little Mix, Professor Green) and Andy Chatterley (Kylie, Diane Vickers) – is also imminent.
SpaSeekers was delighted to have the opportunity to speak with the lovely Jenn about her unique sense of style, as well as some of her favourite beauty products and treatments.
Definitely Gwen Stefani! Gwen can wear casual outfits with urban twists, and high fashion and she looks equally awesome in both. I like M.I.A also because she just wears whatever she wants and her style is very individual.
I really like Clinique products – they’re a real treat. My skin always feels so fresh after using their face soap and toning lotion.
My Rimmel black liquid liner! It's only a fiver and is perfect for just throwing on a classic 60s style flick when you're in a rush, or simply can't face putting loads of make-up on.
To be honest I don't really have as much time to go to spas as I would like. However, when I do visit spas I find a back massage is perfect for relieving all the stress and tension that builds up in my muscles! I think it is important to take time out regularly to feel revitalised...I should probably listen to my own advice though, haha! I'm not very good at relaxing.
I think it's got to be thinking more is more. I'm all for heavy make-up for a big night out, but I think half the battle with makeup is learning which look is right for different occasions. Celebrity-wise, Katy Perry is very good at being confident in her own skin, feeling that she can step out without makeup sometimes. I think it's very empowering to other women. You don't have to be dressed to the nines at all times – it's just not realistic.
…feeling confident in your own skin. It's about feeling healthy inside so that it radiates out. It's about letting go of our body hang-ups and focusing on the positives. Women should consider their best features, and always highlight them however they can.
