I love a bath or shower: Baths! Always.
My favorite form of exercise: I alternate between running and yoga each day. It is the perfect balance of cardio and strength training.
My favorite daily ritual: I only have one latte a day, but I look forward to it so much and savour every moment.
The beauty product I couldn’t live without: I don’t wear a lot of make-up, but I love the NARS tinted moisturiser, it is light and hydrating.
My most recent health/wellness find: I am addicted to almond butter! I can’t stop adding it to my smoothies and using is as a topping on my acai bowls.

My playlist includes: Kanye West, Rüfüs, Miike Snow and Jamie XX
My favorite way to relax: An afternoon weekend nap and long dinners with delicious wine and great company
My perfect day I would: Ideally we would be in New York with breakfast in bed, followed by yoga and an iced latte. Then spending the afternoon laying in the park with my partner Nick, followed by a delicious dinner, wine and an early night.
I am inspired by: Travel, beautiful recipe books, minimalism and creativity.
I recently discovered: Buddah’s Tears! Aside from being delicious, they look so beautiful at the bottom of the tea cup.
The best advice I have received: To always respond and not react.
I go to bed at: I’m an early riser, so the earlier the better! Usually around 9.30-10pm.
My mantra is: A smoothie a day keeps the doctor away!
