 Favourite fashion designer
That’s hard as over the years it’s changed. I was inspired by Issey Miyake when studying fashion at college. I loved his pleats and oversized asymmetrical lines. I still love an asymmetrical design. Currently I like anything with animal prints, or beautiful textile fabrics.
Favourite item of clothing in your wardrobe and why
I'm a sucker for quick fashion, and so my wardrobe rotates quickly. I'm starting to try and wear more sustainable clothing to avoid throwaway clothes.
I'm currently loving my Joseph Ribkoff wide leg wrap trousers. They are an investment item that is classic, flattering and wash up beautifully. No ironing required!
Favourite High Street fashion store (if you had to choose one)
Other than Martha V, I love Zara and H&M.
Favourite song of the moment
I love pop. I have such a diverse music taste really but I also love easy listening. So it’s hard to choose just one.
Favourite film
I love all 'chick flick’ films. But my all- time favourite is probably The Greatest Showman. I just love musicals, which comes from my background in costume design and performing arts. Sequins, the West End and a ‘happy ever after’ are right up my street.
Favourite smell or scent
Fresh paint and carpet. I have renovated lots of houses and the smell at the end when everything is done is the best.
Favourite meal – at home or out
That will always be one of my mum's. Sadly we lost her four years ago but she really was the best cook. So Christmas Day lunch with all the trimmings was great but she made a great pavlova too.
Favourite restaurant
Lots but The Wrestlers in Cambridge is one of our family favourites. Simple dining but the best Thai food.
Favourite way to celebrate the New Year
I'm not a lover of New Year. I like to be in
bed before midnight. However, I've had some great ones with family when younger while abroad skiing. Always seemed to involve games of Pictionary.
Favourite piece of art/antique
I love abstract art and paint lots myself. However, we have a beautiful piece by Newmarket’s Emily Jarvis. She's a brilliant portrait artist but I have one of her stunning abstract pieces.
Favourite part of the country
I love Norfolk/Suffolk. Aldeburgh was somewhere we always holidayed but more recently we love Cromer and crabbing. Those 2p coin machines are my children's favourites.
Favourite food and why
Italian. I love pasta and lasagne. I spent a few holidays in Italy with my friend and travelled there whilst at college studying fashion. Just love everything about Italy and its cuisine.
Favourite book and why
Sadly I'm not a bookworm. Being dyslexic I'm not a natural reader. However, I do sometimes read a trashy novel if on holiday. I prefer a Hello magazine or an interior design magazine.
And one not so favourite . . .
TV show you have to turn off
Coronation Street. I can't stand it, and the intro music makes me race for the remote. I don't know why but I really don't like it. I love Eastenders though.
