Amy Nelson-Bennett is the Global President of Molton Brown, London’s bath, body and beauty connoisseurs.

Amy joined Molton Brown in March 2006 as Vice President of Global Marketing, responsible for brand strategy, product development and merchandising, marketing communications, customer relationship management and e-commerce globally, becoming Global President in October 2010.


Net-A-Porter - May I never have to go into a bricks and mortar department store again. Unlikely with the selection, presentation and end-to-end service available at this stellar website.

Ocado - I haven't been into a big supermarket since I started using Ocado about seven years ago. An easy-to-navigate site that stores all my favourites, with hour-specific delivery slots that suit my schedule. I use it for all my basics and shop at my local butchers and fruit & veg shops at weekends. A great mix.

my-wardrobe - Just in case Net-A-Porter doesn't have something I need. Good for mid-range basics.

i-escape and Tablet Hotels  - My husband and I love to travel, but I loathe travel agents, group activities, etc. We like to travel indie and these two sites are great for finding interesting hotels (sometimes with free extras, always with fair reviews).

TripAdvisor - Not 100% reliable, as there is no special filter for snobbish taste in hotels combined with a penchant for street food, but a great tool in the era of iPhones when you're on the go.

Northwoods Adventures - My Dutch sister-in-law's blog about her life since moving to the US, marrying my baby brother and having my niece. Hilarious and sweet. I wish I'd had this option when I moved to the UK twenty years ago.
