If you’ve not yet tried on-demand beauty app Ruuby, prepare to download your latest obsession. Founded by Cambridge graduate and Forbes 30 Under 30 Venetia Archer in 2015, Ruuby brings the best beauty therapists right to your door and has won praise from Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, to name a few. When she’s not breaking barriers in the tech world, Venetia spends her time browsing recipes on Instagram, making roast chicken (a Sunday night special) and ordering the odd treat-day takeaway. For a special occasion, she’ll add flowers, The Sette’s ivory linen napkins and – an essential dose of fun – party hats and balloons.
