Ampika Pickston: Entrepreneur, Buddhist, Housewife.
When I found out she was launching her own range of haircare, Ampika Lox, I jumped at the chance to invite her on the show because, as a fan of Bravo TV's most successful franchise, I hadn't failed to spot Ampika's self-confidence and sense of self, so chatting beauty with one of my favourite housewives was a no-brainer.
Truthfully, I had no idea what to expect from my meeting with Ampika but when she greeted me at the door of her London penthouse with a hug and offered me a glass of water in monogrammed stemware I knew we were in for a good chat.
In this episode of The Beauty Podcast with Emma G Ampika tells me all about her haircare range, her passion for being a businesswoman and where she gets her entrepreneurial spirit. But rather surprisingly the first thing we talk about is meditation, which takes us on a journey of Ampika's childhood and Buddhism, her passion for journalling, how she manages work and motherhood, and her belief that a healthy mind is an active mind.
The book Ampika is currently reading is: Speeches That Changed the World available on Amazon.
