Describe your style in five words:

Creative, Sophisticated, Impactful,Glamorous,Vintage-Inspired

What is your favourite piece in your wardrobe, why do you love it and where did you get it?

My favourite piece is an original 1940s dressing robe, which is printed in a vibrant pattern of bright cornflower blue daisies with maize yellow centres, and jewel green foliage and posies of bright poppy red blossoms. I purchased it from Etsy and it holds a special place in my heart because its one of the first ever pieces I bought when I decided to be a pinup. 

Who or what is your inspiration?

My inspiration comes from the glamour of old Hollywood starlets. I also love vintage fashion magazines and clothing patterns, patterns particularly from the 1940s - 50s. 

What’s the one thing you wouldn’t leave the house without doing?

It's actually totally un-fashion-related, but I couldn't leave my house without making my bed!

What’s your top tip for feeling confident?

Stay true to yourself and your purpose. There is power and confidence in understanding that you wouldn’t be as special as you are if you just fit in. . . 

What’s the last book you read?

The Art of Seduction

 What’s your favourite song, band or piece of music?

My favourite artiste is the artist I actually manage, Nesbeth. He sings amazingly inspirational music that anyone who is going through, or has been through, hardship can listen to and be motivated. My absolute favourite song of his is 'My Dream', I love it.

What's your biggest achievement to date? 

Producing the smash hit reggae song My Dream for Nesbeth - it's been incredibly successful. 

What do you still want to achieve? 

At the beginning of last year I created a mood board of what I hoped to achieve. One of my goals was to grow my Instagram following. I started 2017 with 7289 followers, and I'm now on 12.2K - it's growing all the time.
