You in one sentence
I live in London with my husband, daughter and second daughter on the way – any day now!
I’m a fashion journalist and broadcaster, with a huge interior design fetish!
On your desk
Lots of stationery – I’m a stationery nerd! My Petra Palumbo water carafe, Smythson diary,
a couple of framed photos, and often fresh flowers too.
More flowers! A novel or two that I never seem to open (too tired), some earrings, a scrunchie, glass of water, lip balm.
Go to stationery piece
Clementina Sketchbook notes of course! I am a big fan of the handwritten thank you letter,
written in proper ink from a fountain pen.
Mountain in winter, i love to ski.
Country or city
A bit of both!
or stand up cocktail
Neither – my husband and I love drinks and snacks sitting up at the bar. We did that the night we got engaged and it’s just more sociable and fun.
I went to some corkers in LA,
they really go nuts with the catering there, I miss taco trucks!
Sadly I can barely remember, being pregnant plus Covid has rather been the fun police! When we first moved back to London (from LA) we went to a hilarious themed birthday in a fake prison in Soho, it was lead by actors and pretty funny. They serve you cocktails in your cells.
Digital or paper invitation
Effort with creating signature cocktails, it is always really appreciated and gets the party started.
Last thank you note
To a friend, for her baby shower
Next Thank you note
Favourite Clementina Sketchbook piece
Her signature clementine thank you cards with a green ribbon around the edge, I want to create something similar with her for an upcoming event…

Becoming a Mum, by far.
I’m also launching another company this Summer which i’ve been working on for over a year, and i’m really proud of that! It’s in the interiors space
and I can’t wait to share more.
Favourite adventure destination
Bali – it’s magical there and full of adventures
What makes a home
Top 3 on your Bucket List

Wallpaper or paint
Both – I love a painted window frame next to wallpaper, I’m currently renovating
and planning a few rooms like that.

Who will receive
your birth announcement first?
Gosh I’m not sure, probably the baby’s grandparents!
