The moment of the day
When a happy customer leaves my store, the Design Centre, feeling good about herself.
Imagine by John Lennon.
Legends of the Fall.
My mom, the most selfless person I know. Her knowledge and kindness know no bounds.
Girl On A Train, by Paula Hawkins. I love a good thriller.
My first bespoke couture gown created by the incredible Irish designer Synan O'Mahony.
My stunning Philip Treacy black headpiece. That hat has had a lot of fun at the races over the years!
The pet hate
There is nothing worse than a lukewarm coffee!
I have a great group of long-standing friends, including my sister, Kim. I would be in big trouble if I singled out just one.
The beauty product
Touche Eclat and pink Vaseline - I can't leave the house without either.
I travelled to New York for the very first time in July, and completely fell in love with the city.
I am not a morning person, but I'm working on it.
Pilates is a new hobby for me.
I'm hoping for great things.
I love a good cocktail! The China Sichuan restaurant in Sandyford has a signature raspberry cocktail, and it's one of my favourite treats.
The Shelbourne hotel, particularly around Christmas time, is magical.

My Uncle Dermot and Aunt Marie's roast dinner. They have been like second parents to me. We always share special moments over mealtimes, and Saba's delicious hake in banana leaf is also one of my all-time favourite dishes.
The piece of advice
My mother has always said, 'There is a can in can't!' I love this - it's so typical of my mom's can-do attitude.
Gabriel Byrne. I had the pleasure of meeting him once, and his legendary charisma and charm didn't disappoint.
