Q: You like shopping. I know you do. Why do you like shopping?

A: What is not to love? I love browsing as much as the actual buying. I am very much a decisive shopper, I know almost immediately if I will buy something or not, even before I try something on. I love adding goodies to my home or my wardrobe. I love getting home and unwrapping my new purchases and packing them away in their place. My wardrobe is divided into two sections: firstly the actual wardrobe where all my clothes go and secondly a rail where I hang all my favourite items… these change constantly. Most of my friends live with their boyfriends, I don’t so I feel like I should completely enjoy taking up the entire cupboard and having a rail in my room if I want. (I’ll tell you a secret: the cupboard in my dining room area is actually full of shoes!). I also really love shopping for my home, I love trolling bric-a-brac stores with my mum looking for treasure and collect vintage tea cups. My latest purchase was the most gorgeous Tiaan Nagel grey pants, a ceramic skull, a Country Road draped body suit and the Elle Decoration UK Magazine, and some lemonade, the new Woolies one is amazing!

Q: What would you add to your wardrobe if you could anything?

A: A sensational Lanvin dress, a pair of Miu Miu glitter booties and a beautiful piece of art.

Q: What is your favourite city in the world?
A: Eeek, how can you make me decide? Definitely Paris, because I lived there for a year and got to know the non tourist part of the city and then Mumbai, my boyfriend I visited there last year and I just cannot wait to go back. It is indescribable. I would really like to explore more of the east, I can feel China calling.
Q: What makes you happy?
A: Sundays, definitely my favourite day of the week. I sleep late, and have a delicious breakfast with my boyfriend, we then go to my parents house for a big Sunday lunch. Who ever is in town comes around, and we cook, eat, chat, laugh, swim. The table is always full of my sisters, my niece (who I am obsessed with), cousins, friends etc. We sometimes argue, of course, and we have a list of topics which we have argued to death, so much so, that we are not allowed to talk to about them anymore. I always leave the house feeling happy. And of course pretty shoes.

Q: Can you make pasta from scratch? As in the actual pasta? (I feel like you can, because you can do pretty much anything…)

A: I wish! Now you gave me a challenge.
