`Laurey is just so inspiring and I love her way of looking at the world' Deliciously Ella `Working with Laurey has been so fantastic. She brings an incredible sense of peace, calm and serenity with her, which is so inspiring. I've loved learning about meditation and the traditional ceremonies that surround those ancient practises from her, and it's really pushed me to begin my own meditation journey.' Deliciously Ella `Laurey is not only a wonderful make up artist but she also introduced me to the world of crystals and meditation. Laurey would always make whatever space we were working in - big, small or ugly - become a relaxing, calming and beautiful space before she would do my make-up. From the palo santo wood, the essential oils to the crystal she would put in my hand to help with whatever situation I faced that day, it was so thoughtful and intriguing. She always knew how to help. My whole band were so interested by her methods that they all started to have crystals with them on stage and on the tour bus! Her passion is infectious and is a beautiful thing to be enjoyed.' Jessie Ware Louis has an excellent understanding of both the theory and practice of mindfulness' Andy Puddicombe, CEO Headspace
