How long have you lived in London?

14 years. I moved straight after I graduated to do an internship at Richard Nicoll and have been here ever since. I’m still 100% a northerner at heart though.

What’s your favourite thing about living here?

There’s always something great to do and delicious to eat and fun people to see.

How would you spend your perfect Saturday?

I’m more of a Sunday girl! Saturday, I get things done and maybe see friends and usually the day will involve a cocktail at some point, but Sundays are for relaxing! I live near Columbia road flower market so on Sundays my partner and I get up and walk to buy some flowers and then we head to Leilas on Calvert Avenue to pick up some good food and then we go home and eat it all! Ideally in front of a movie. A Sunday movie has to be either an old movie or something inspiring and more international. It’s the rules. Then if I can squeeze in some reading with a glass of wine then I’m very happy! If there is time for a Murder She Wrote or Columbo at some point in the day then I’m ecstatic.

What are you reading at the moment?

I just finished An American Marriage by Tayari Jones which was a great book and Fleishman Is in Trouble by Taffy Brodesser-Akner. I have just started Late in the Day by Tessa Hadley who is a beautiful writer. I love books, I love going into a book shop and spending ages choosing and then leaving with a bookstack, I love reading them and then putting them into my bookcase which is organised by colour like a rainbow and makes me very happy. Reading is the only time I ever really switch off. It’s my therapy!
