She loves fashion – particularly shoes, is the manager of a thriving internet sales company and a working mum with “two full-time boys.”
For Esther Nash, life is forever gaining momentum as she juggles relationships with musician husband Adam, and her lads, Noah, aged six and four-year-old Hudson.
The 28-year-old admits life is a whirlwind full of unforeseen challenges in both business and motherhood. and her coping mechanism is focussing on the good things and “to keep smiling.”
But the gleaming smile and infectious laughter that so defines this ‘supermum’ was stolen in a moment after a head-on smash with a bus.
“It was just another day. I’m always busy, but fortunately I hadn’t got the boys with me,” she recalls.
“Like all accidents it all happened so quickly. I was in a road where suddenly the lanes become very narrow. On that day a delivery van as parked at the narrowest point. The road in front of me appeared clear, but as soon as I’d begun the manoeuvre a bus was coming right towards me.
“I thought I’d have enough room to continue and miss it, but I didn’t,” she adds.
Trapped and hysterical in her mangled Nissan she was aware a number of pedestrians shouting ‘get out, get out.’
“The air bag had gone off and there was this haze in the car that looked like smoke. I think they thought it was on fire, but I was more concerned with the strange crunching in my mouth.
“In the middle of this chaos – by now the ambulance and police had arrived – I looked in the mirror and my mouth was full of blood. My smile was ruined with one of my upper front teeth sheered.
“I was mortified, hurt everywhere as I’d bounced back and forth off the bus and the parked van, but it was my damaged smile that bothered me most,” she recalls.
