LIFESTYLE: Zoe Foster Blake’s Reading List

ZOE FOSTER BLAKE SAYS SHE'S THE KIND OF PERSON TO NICK FRIES RIGHT OFF YOUR PLATE. AHHH THAT'S OUR KIND OF PERSON! SHE'S ALSO A JOURNALIST, MAGAZINE EDITOR, COSMETICS ENTREPRENEUR, APP CREATOR AND AUTHOR.

She's clever and witty and her take on the everyday is just delicious whether it's in the pearls of wisdom she shares in her Break-Up Boss app (now a book too) which she created 'because the broken-hearted tend to do VERY silly things with their phone and having a 24/7 pocket coach to guide them back to sanity is probably not a bad thing' or her first children's book, No-One Likes A Fart which was awarded Best Children's Picture Book of the year in 2018. Her other books include Amazinger Face, Textbook Romance, Air Kisses, The Younger Man, Playing the Field and The Wrong Girl which was made into a TV series.  She has her own skin-care range, Go-To, because despite there already being billions of products on the market, she fervently believes hers has a place.  It's cruelty free, clean and 'with just the stuff you need and nothing you don't.'  Oh and she's an Ambassador for Look Good...Feel Better and the Orangutan Project.  And the Mum of two beautiful kids - Sonny and Rudy. Yep she's our kind of person, that's for sure.
 
Over the past 12 months  Zoe has been adding her favourite reads to her Instagram and we’ve been keeping track.  We trust her taste in books and think you can too, so whether you're tucking one in the basket of your bike to head out from your luxury Byron Beach Abodes accomodation beach bound for a day of chilling out at Clarkes, Wategos or Tallows or swinging in a hanging cane chair at one of our accomms, we're pretty confident there's a read here for you.
 

Enjoy!
