For this Wellness Month edit of Maybe It's Because I'm A Londoner we sat down with Charli Howard, model, author and founder of Squish Beauty. She tells us about coping with work-life balance, romantic London must-dos and what she would bring to a desert island.


Charli Howard

TL: Where is home for you?
CH: South East London is where it will always be!

TL: What's your first memory of London?
CH: Feeding the pigeons on Leicester Square (which you can't do now!)

TL: What is your most romantic spot in London?
CH: Walking down the Hammersmith river at nighttime!

TL: And where you would recommend for a first date?
CH: If you can get a table, The River Café.

TL: Do you have a favourite park?
CH: It’s not really a park as such, but I love taking a seat in the Crossbones Graveyard near London Bridge. It has so
much history in there.

TL: What does self care look like to you?
CH: For me, it’s about eating a good meal, watching something comforting & having a warm shower or bath. I love skincare so will put on one of my Squish cherry masks and drink some tea. I love being snuggly at home, I’m such a home bird, and feeling totally relaxed!

TL: What are your top tips for maintaining a healthy work-life balance in a city like London.
CH: I’m still learning how to do this because I do have the tendency to throw myself into work. I try to give myself at least two occasions a week to socialise with friends or family, because I think you can become a bit lonely otherwise.

TL: What’s your desert island item?
CH: This is probably the most boring answer ever, but I’d have to say SPF 50+. If I’m shipwrecked on a desert island,
the last thing I need is wrinkles.

TL: Last play you saw?
CH: ‘Cabaret’ - it was honestly amazing. Fun and emotional at the same time.

TL: Favourite tube line?
CH: I have a soft spot for the Northern Line for some reason. I do like to sit on the front of the DLR and pretend I’m
driving it.
