My day in style

From her high-street wardrobe to her lunches with the Loose Women team, pre­sen­ter An­drea Mclean, 48, talks us through her day

Closer (UK) - - My Day In Style -

‘HAV­ING A STYLIST MAKES ME MORE AD­VEN­TUR­OUS’

6AM: My alarm goes off and I al­ways hit snooze. Af­ter, I jot down my goals for the day to give me a pos­i­tive mindset. I avoid check­ing my phone as I hate be­ing caught up in other peo­ple’s non­sense be­fore my day has be­gun! My fi­ancé Nick [Feeney] usu­ally brings me a cup of tea in bed. 7:30AM: I al­ways plan my out­fits the night be­fore. I mostly wear high street – Mata­lan, Zara and Top­shop. On Loose Women we have a stylist, which in­spires me to be more ad­ven­tur­ous. I’m wear­ing lots of prints at the mo­ment. 9AM: I never leave the house with­out my trusty Lu­l­ule­mon ruck­sack. It’s packed with all my es­sen­tials, in­clud­ing San­tal 33 per­fume, Nur­ture Re­plen­ish mois­turiser, lip balm, a comb and parac­eta­mol. I’ll head to the stu­dio a cou­ple of hours be­fore film­ing. I catch the train to work – I love be­ing among other com­muters, peo­ple watch­ing. If I’m not work­ing, I’ll ex­er­cise. I some­times have a per­sonal trainer, but I have a great yoga app on my phone, so when­ever I have a spare five min­utes I’ll do some yoga. 2PM: For lunch, I’ll grab a salad from Pret a Manger. Some­times, all the Loose Women go out to­gether, but it’s never any­where fancy – our go-to place is usu­ally Pizza Ex­press or the staff can­teen. 4PM: When I get in from work, I tie up my hair and change into comfy clothes. Poor Nick only ever sees me when I’m in my py­ja­mas! 5PM: Din­ner is usu­ally sal­mon and veg­eta­bles, with added gin­ger, gar­lic and chili for ex­tra flavour. I’m ob­sessed with seafood so, for date nights, Nick and I head to Galvin at Win­dows at the Hil­ton Ho­tel on Park Lane – the food is amaz­ing. 8PM: I love spend­ing qual­ity time with my fam­ily dur­ing the evening [An­drea is mum to Fin­lay, 15, and Amy, 11, from a pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship]. Most nights I chill out on the sofa watch­ing TV. I’ve just fin­ished watch­ing Big Lit­tle Lies. My dog [a labrador called Jack­son] al­ways comes in for cud­dles, too. If I’m head­ing out, I’ll glam up by wear­ing a clas­sic LBD and heels. 9PM: Be­fore I’m about to get into bed, I end up find­ing a mil­lion things to do! I al­ways make time to re­move my make-up us­ing Sim­ple face wipes and a Liz Earle fa­cial toner af­ter­wards.
