What do you most value in your friends?
I think loyalty, their ability to make me laugh and smile no matter what and showing their vulnerability so that I can help them too when the need it.
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Being in love... by the sea and in the sunshine.
Which living person do you most admire?
My three-year-old niece Sienna, I want to be more like her! The way she sees the world with such wonder and amazement, is a strong woman already and gives so much love and joy to her family.
What is your most treasured possession?
That’s a really hard one! I have some jewellery which I would say is so so special to me but then actually I think maybe my pillow. My mum gave me this memory foam pillow when I was younger with this quite naff-looking pillowcase and it makes me think of her when I see it. It sits on top of what I call my "showroom pillows" and doesn’t go at all but it’s the only pillow I can sleep well with and I love it so much!
Which words or phrase sum up your approach to life?
Smile, be kind and don’t worry because everything is going to be marvellous in the end.
