What do you love most about Your City?

There is absolutely no other place like London and its pretty hard to choose one thing I love about it, but I'm gonna go for one particular view... There's a little bridge that crosses super high above busy Archway Rd in North London. From there you have a East to West view of the whole of London. I always drive super slow across it just so I can attempt to take all it in.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

I'm all over this smashed avocado on toast situation! I usually make it myself but the one at the Plum and Spilt Milk in Kings Cross is totally yum.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – Definitely sleeping...

10:00 AM - I'm probably up and about tackling my Dailies List, which is basically a list of things I aim to do everyday single day, from meditation to vitamin taking to sit ups... and that's if I'm not at a casting, voice over session or booking. My life is definitely random and no two days are the same.

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?

I'm not sure how "Power Lunchy" this place is but when I do lunch I like to keep it local, light and tasty and there is a place called Acoustic in Stoke Newington that does Mediterranean small plates. Totally yum... I'd say it's more "Mummy Lunchy" than "Power Lunchy" (even though I'm not a mum!)   

7:00 PM -  If I'm not home binge watching Netflix, you can find me swanning around at some kind of fashion, beauty or lifestyle event. I love the buzz of London in the evening and the networking that can happen; you never know who your going to meet.

11:00 PM - I'm totally aiming to be at home by this point... sometimes I hit that target and sometimes I don't!

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

I always need a strong black Americano to start my day and by the evening we can just turn that into an Espresso Martini.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

I love finding a deal and one of my most used apps is INTO. It gives you discounts and freebies in London from restaurants, bars and gyms.

What should everyone try at least once?


Where do you enjoy getting lost?

Costco.... don't judge me.
