Do you have a grooming regime?

Yes, I do. I take care of my skin with a daily cleanse/tone/moisturiser routine. I get my hair done frequently, exfoliate and moisturise my body from head to toe, waxing is a must every two weeks and threading my eyebrows. I also get my lashes and eyebrows tinted, have my nails done every three weeks and have a facial every month. Above all this, the most thing that makes me feel more confident is my workout routine.

What’s the number one fashion item you couldn’t live without, and why?

My pair of nude heels – in my opinion it is one pair of shoes you definitely have to own.

What’s the most money you have spent at one go?

My house is the most money I’ve ever spent on one single thing. I don’t remember what else, but probably I would have spent most money at one go on a particular designer bag.

Do you prefer dining out or clubbing? And why?

I definitely prefer dining out, I’m not normally one for clubbing, eating delicious food and drinking good wine is one of the highlights of my life :)

What was your biggest failure to date?

I have never really experienced what I would call a big failure. I try to deal with mistakes as learning experiences. If I fail to reach a goal, I try harder the next time. I am sure I have failed at times, but I do not spend time fretting over these things. I try to focus on doing my best each day, and some days I succeed and some days I do not, but to me it is the effort that counts.

Do you usually hoard things or regularly throw out stuff?

There was a time in my life where I held on to everything. I’ve learned that you can live a happy life without a lot of stuff. I always look for the things that I have used in the last 12 months, then I’ll decide whether to keep them or not. Things are not as important as we often think they are. Once I get rid of the junk, I’ll have room to better store the things I really want, as well as space to decorate and entertain family and friends.
