Q. Describe your perfect holiday in three words:


A. Hot, relaxing, long.



Q. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?


A. I’ve been to Australia and that still remains my favourite country I’ve ticked off so far, but next on my list is the Maldives – it just looks idyllic. I need to start planning a trip – I’m in need of some sun!



Q. What are your holiday packing essentials?


A. My suitcase will always have the following: bikinis, beach shirts and denim shorts, a couple of sun dresses and a jumpsuit. For shoes, it has to be espadrilles and a pair of sandals. And I never travel without sunglasses, a hat and quality sunscreen.

Q. Do you prefer bikinis or swimsuits?


A. I am 100% a bikini girl when I’m on holiday, but if I’m at home and going to the local pool with my kids, it would be a swimsuit.



Q. What are your top beauty tips for staying in the sun?


A. First and foremost, I’ll always make sure I have a good sunscreen and a hat – then it’s remembering to drink lots of water and stay hydrated. Make-up wise, I like to use a brow and face tint - it’s still natural but a tiny bit of coverage gives you that extra confidence boost on the beach.



Q. How do you dress for a hot day in the city?


A. Given that you never know what the weather will do in London, I’ll always build my look around denim. Then, I’ll layer a shirt over a vest so you can always disrobe and tie it around your waist if the temperature soars, but equally button it up if it drops.
