What inspired you to make a blog?
I read a lot of blogs, and one day I just thought, why not start my own? I talk a lot and love sharing information, and my blog is the perfect way of doing this.
What’s your favourite perfume?
Stella McCartney Stella because it’s unique – clean, fresh and subtle.
What summer trend are you loving?
I’ve always loved floral scents, so anything with rose or peony is right up my street.
What can’t you leave the house without?
My phone! Ha-ha! It’s my life.
Do you remember what your first perfume was?
Yes, I loved Calvin Klein. I always have and always will.
What perfume do you always pack for your holiday?
Stella as it’s perfect for everyday activities and stays on the skin for ages.
What’s your biggest passion?
Probably travelling. To be able to see the world and experience different cultures is my ultimate dream.
What’s the last country you visited?
I recently travelled to Singapore. I love it there because it’s hot all year round, the people are super-friendly, and there are some amazing sights, too.
Where’s your favourite place in the world?
Home is my favourite place. There’s nothing better than taking off your heels and make-up, slumping on the sofa and eating ice cream after a long day.
Who’s your style inspiration?
I love Olivia Palermo’s style.
What’s your favourite smell?
Anything floral or fruity.
If you had to make your own perfume, what would it smell of?
It would smell like a beach holiday, with notes of coconut.
What’s your life ambition?
To be happy and content with life, and to travel as much possible.
