WHERE ARE YOU WRITING THIS? 

From my studio home in London!

 

WHERE ARE YOU DREAMING OF GOING AS SOON AS THE QUARANTINE ENDS? 

I would love to just hop on a train to Paris to see my closest family and friends again. 

 

WHAT QUOTE/ MANTRA / MINDFULNESS GO TO IS GETTING YOU THROUGH THIS? 

A quote I love from Carol Dweck’s book Mindset: “If you want to live an extraordinary life, you must give up many parts of a normal one.” I’m taking this time to focus on my personal growth and become a better, happier version of myself. Listening to motivational podcasts has been my daily saviour – The Knowledge Project is a favorite. 

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU LAUGHING? 

Regular chats with my closest friends, FaceTime calls with family and the humour on social media (especially TikTok videos)!

 

WHAT WON’T YOU EVER TAKE FOR GRANTED AGAIN POST QUARANTINE? 

That I live in a beautiful city, with breathtaking views, and to take advantage of running or walking outdoors much more often. It has become a daily routine of mine now!

 

WHAT SMALL BUSINESSES ARE YOU LOVING AND WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A SHOUT TO? 

Kitri Studio – beautiful, chic dresses! The Deck – empowering suiting! For Arts Sake – celebrity style modern eyewear! 

  

WHAT RESTAURANT WILL BE YOUR FIRST MEAL POST QUARANTINE? 

I would probably head to Farmacy in Notting Hill for a much-needed brunch catch up with my friends! I just love the food and atmosphere there. 

 

WHAT IS KEEPING YOU ENTERTAINED - PRINT OR DIGITAL? 

I read Business of Fashion daily, there are so many informative articles are Live talks with industry experts. Podcasts have become a go-to of mine as well as reading! It helps clear the mind in the evenings and learn in the process. 

 

WE ARE CALLED THE DECK – WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CARD GAME? 

I love a good game of 21 or Texas Hold Em!

 

WHAT WOULD YOU DREAM SUIT LOOK LIKE? 

My personal taste is feminine and sophisticated, yet youthful. I would go for a navy tailored jacket with large lapels, over a matching chic dress! Think Chanel vibes!

 

WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING ON NETFLIX? 

I’ve been re-watching some of my favorite Leonardo DiCaprio movies, or classics from the 90s. 

 

WHAT ARE YOU READING? 

At the moment What It Takes by Stephen Schwarzman on building a business in the finance industry from the ground up. I’m loving motivational stories from inspiring entrepreneurs or CEOs – there is a lot of good advice to take!

 

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR SKINCARE REGIME? THE PRODUCTS YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT.

I’ve been obsessing over Decorte Skincare, it’s a Japanese skincare brand basing their formulas off of Eastern medicine and 30 years of research. The products are lightweight, gentle and suitable for all skin! 

 

YOUR GO TO VITAMINS? 

Always Multi-vitamins and magnesium to boost my immune system and concentration!

 

WHAT IS YOUR HOME WORKOUT OF CHOICE? 

I workout daily, whether that be runs or at home routines. A few I’m loving are CoreFlex pilates (my go-to pilates studio based in South Kensington) who are hosting live morning sessions to focus on core, upper body and leg strength, and Psycle on IG live for HIIT workouts.
