Learning something new every day.

Reading Vogue.

Alternative career choice?
I think I would have been a fashion buyer at Selfridges.

My need to have a plan for everything.

What is your most treasured possession?
Probably my degree. It took a lot to get it and I met some of the most amazing people along the way.

I was an extra in the film Glorious 39 and got to meet Bill Nighy and David Tennant; both were lovely.

Greatest risk you have ever taken?
I would have to say moving away from my family to live in London with my other half.

If you ruled the world, what would you change first?
I would introduce compulsory cake Fridays.
