How do you start your day?
Usually at 5.30 am - way before the kids wake. I have a shower, get dressed and sort out everything I need for the day. A quick coffee and fire off some emails then I get the kids up at 7am. That hour and a half to myself at the start of the day makes all the difference and I feel way more organised.
What is your fashion philosophy?
I don't know if I have one - I guess to be comfortable and not take it too seriously.
Can you share your top tip?
I can share my top tip for life, which is simply just enjoy it, life is short and time passes so fast, enjoy every moment.
What inspires you?
Everything and everyone. That is cheesy but it's true. Just generally people’s passion and zest for life, along with peoples 'invisible PR' - as Steven Bartlett calls it. I've being listening to Brene Brown the last few months and I find her really incredible too - her Ted Talk on vulnerability I think I have watched about 10 times.
How do you unwind?
I am going through a really transitional time in my life having started a new business and I am learning new ways of self-care. I love spending time with friends and chatting over long dinners, but I am a huge fan of a weekend evening massage, a marathon telly run and acupuncture.
If you could visit anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would it be?
I have a list as long as my arm but my top three today;
Guadalajara, Tbilisi and Hydra
What is the best part of your job?
I get to do what I really love - and I work with other lots of wonderful people who inspire me every day. I don't have a traditional linear job, which keeps every day interesting and exciting.
Which shoes do you love this season?
Venosa Silver Mirror - These will jazz up any outfit from jeans to a LBD - they are classic but super fun.
