I like your pictures with your boyfriend, they are so beautiful and authentic. What does love mean to you?
Love to me is feeling supported wherever and whenever. It’s the unspoken connection between you and that person, that makes you feel safe, secure and at peace.
Where do people meet you on a Saturday night?
Saturday night you’ll either find me having dinner/drinks at a new restaurant I’ve found (big foodie) or just chilling at home watching something with my boyfriend that we’ve flicked through Netflix for an hour to find.
Morning or night person?
Depends what country I’m in! When im back home in London I would say I’m more of a night person as but the night starts at around 4pm in winter so isn’t everyone?! In LA I’m definitely a morning, I love waking up early to hike here, it’s the perfect way to start my day!
Book or film?
Book if I’m really into it otherwise I love films, there’s something about the ritual of a good film with snacks and feeling cosy that just hits different.
“I think it takes nothing to be kind, but a lot not to be.”
Eating out or cooking yourself?
Whatever new city I’m in I try and ask everyone and anyone (and I mean this) they’re favourite spots to put on a google maps list on my phone. I love good food and I love trying new places so I would say I prefer eating out when in a new city but love cooking when I’m at home!
Beach or city holiday?
Ooo that’s hard, I absolutely love the sea and would always choose that over a pool but I love the culture of a new city so could I have a city with a beach please!
What’s the nicest compliment someone can give you that isn’t about your appearance?
That they’re kind. I think it takes nothing to be kind, but a lot not to be.
“…there’s something about the ritual of a good film with snacks and feeling cosy that just hits different.”
The world needs more of…
More time to travel. The past year has been integral to me as I’ve been lucky enough to travel so much for work and pleasure, and it’s amazing how much it’s made an impact on me.
Where do you see yourself in about 10 years?
It sounds cliched but I just want to be happy for that anything. Of course I’d love to be successful, maybe with a family and a dog but who knows what the future brings, and I just would love to be happy in whatever path I take (smiles)
