Seize the day or hit snooze?

Hit snooze – I’m a night owl. Although snoozing has become impossible since bringing a cocker spaniel puppy home – Ivy has enough energy to power an entire country. 


What motivates you in the morning?

Weekday mornings? Ticking things off my to-do list. Weekend mornings? Brunch at The River House in Frome.


What would your dream weekend involve?

Going to a farmers’ market with my fiancé, Josh, Ivy and our friends, eating all the food, buying all the fresh flowers, and bringing home all the brilliant vintage finds – our house is full of old brass mirrors and candlesticks. I love when days slide seamlessly into night and revolve around a long, picturesque walk (the more autumn leaves the better) a great book, a late-afternoon nap, a delicious dinner, board games, and so much laughter your stomach aches. But my weekend isn’t complete without some time to write. It’s like an itch I have to scratch, and it feels so good when I do. It doesn’t matter if I’m getting stuck into a brutal murder scene or penning the first meeting between two lovers, it’s my happy place.


What do you think is your finest quality?

My thoughtfulness.


What outfit, benched in lockdown, were you most looking forward to wearing and where did you first wear it?

My wedding dress, and I've not worn it quite yet. My fiancé and I have been together for thirteen years this November, having met as two fresh-faced 18-year-olds on the first day of university, so this wedding has been a long time in the making. I can’t wait to slip into my dress and marry the best person I know.
