Who’s in your family? My husband, me and our 2 little ones – Luca (3.5) and Lily (2)
Where do you live and why? We live in a leafy part of North London because when we moved here from New York, I fell in love with Hampstead Heath, it reminded me a bit of Central Park – and I knew that as soon as we start our family – I wanted to live as close to the Heath as I possibly could. So after first 2 years in East London, we made our move.
Tell us about your typical Sunday. My son goes to football so my husband usually takes him to his (very early) class as Lily and I get ready for the day. When they come back, they always bring fresh croissants and we have our breakfast together and then get out of house for a walk to Kenwood House or drive to the farm (my kids love Hatfield house farm and Knebworth house for the dinosaur trail) Some Sundays – we meet up with our friends in the afternoon or drive up to Cambridge – where my husband’s family is from.
What is your family’s favourite meal? Weekend breakfast when we all sit together (my husband works so we don’t get to dine all together during the week because by the time he gets back from work – our babies are fast asleep)
Tell us your favourite place to go in your neighbourhood. Highgate Woods and Hampstead Heath
Tell us which brands you love to wear most? So many brands that I love from Saint Laurent to Isabel Marant. But my usual wardrobe consists of Cos, Zara, Acne, Ganni, Maje, Sandro, All Saints, Topshop, And Other Stories.
What is your biggest extravagance? I think it’s childcare, my kids attend nursery once a week so I could work on my new business venture. And shopping. I am addicted.
Do you have any guilty pleasures? Yes! chocolate, Instagram and E! News 🙂
Tell us a secret about yourself. If I tell you, it will no longer be a secret! Although to be fair – I don’t have any 🙂
If you could have dinner with any 3 women, fictional, real, dead or alive, who would they be? Diane Von Furstenberg, Garance Dore, Coco Chanel and Maya Angelou
Lastly, who would you nominate to be a Heroine? Jenny Scott from Mothers Meeting.
Jenny, we would absolutely love to make you one of our heroines!
