FIRST THING YOU DO WHEN YOU WAKE UP? 
I am still just about breastfeeding my baby boy!
 
LAST THING YOU DO BEFORE YOU GO TO SLEEP?
I take 10 deep breaths. 'Breathe away the day'....

In my dreams scrambled eggs and sourdough. In reality, Shreddies with my children's leftover milk.
 
FAVOURITE COCKTAIL?
A vodka martini. From Duke's.
 
MOTIVATIONAL MANTRA/QUOTE OF CHOICE? 
Value yourself and others will value you.
 
TRAVEL ESSENTIALS?
Omorovicza facial spritz, The Week, Hello magazine, my Away suitcase.  Toblerone from Duty Free.

I wanted to be Editor of Vogue!
 
DREAM SUIT?
A dirty pink velvet day suit. 
 
ROLE MODEL?
So many.

ONE THING YOU TOOK OUT OF LOCKDOWN 1.0?
We all need to slow the hell down. It shouldn't take a global pandemic to do that. 
 
ADVICE YOU WISH YOU’D BEEN TOLD AS A CHILD?
Find a training that you can learn and develop throughout your career. This might sound odd but a part of me would have loved to have been a lawyer.
 
PREFER A SUIT PARED UP OR PARED DOWN?
Pared down. But maybe the right suit could do both.....Daisy?!
 
HOW DO YOU DE-STRESS?
I have a hot bath with Ila Bath Salts and I listen to The High Low.

My husband's discount at Waitrose. I'm not kidding. I love that place.

Schitts Creek.  And I finally started 'Queer Eye'!

Pandora Sykes, 'How do we know we are doing it right?'
 
WHAT IS KEEPING YOU LAUGHING?
My husband. 
 
WORKOUT OF CHOICE?
Joe Wicks - I'm still doing his HITT! I've graduated from PE with Joe. 'Baby weight be gone!' (And Mark Wright's Train Wright for his, erm, insightful training advice...okay for his 6-pack)
