The former international model chats to Chloe Brennan about her favourite people, places and things.

The person

It's hard to choose just one. My boyfriend, Conor, who I moved to Sydney to be with, but of course my beautiful family and my doggies, Ralph and Lulu, too.

The memory

Arriving back to Ireland from Australia, to surprise my family. Seeing the look on their faces was very special, and made the long trip worth it.

The moment of the day

First thing on a Saturday morning - Conor and I go for a long walk while the sun rises and the world wakes up.

The song

Beautiful People by Chris Brown featuring Benny Benassi has been my favourite song since it came out. I think it just brings back really happy memories for me.

The movie

My forever favourite movie will always be Mean Girls. I think I've watched it 50 times!

The book

The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. Everyone needs to read this book or watch the movie - it's incredible.

The hero

My beautiful mother, Sari - for everything she has done for us throughout the years, and because of the amazing rock that she is.

The outfit

A little white dress, gold jewellery and cute sandals will always be my go-to outfit here in Sydney. A simple classic.

The accessory

Gold hoop earrings - my outfit never feels complete without them. Even if my outfit is super casual, I feel somewhat done up with them on.

The gadget

I have to go for the obvious and say my phone - I couldn't live without it! Especially Google Maps.

The smell

My Liz Earle Skin Replenishing Body Balm is the most divine smell in the world. I am obsessed.

The friend

I have so many amazing friends that I've known since I was five, and I'm so grateful for that. One of my best friends is my sister Andrea. She's my sidekick for life.

The beauty product

I keep my beauty routine very simple, but my favourite product is probably The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%. It's worked wonders on my skin.

The pet hate

When someone is rude and has bad manners. It's not hard to smile and be pleasant, and you never know how a simple smile or a few nice words can brighten someone's day.

The celebrity

Emma Watson, because she really uses her fame to promote positive change.

I also loved her in Harry Potter.

The holiday

Somewhere warm and tropical. I went to Bali a few years ago and fell in love with it. The people there were genuinely some of the nicest I've ever met.

The hotel

I stayed in a great hotel in Abu Dhabi called Traders. It had its own private beach, which made it very special.

The advice

Positive thinking can change your life. You can manifest anything you want, as long as you believe it will happen. Be grateful for what you do have, as opposed to looking at what you don't have.

The drink

Sparkling rosé has been my go-to drink here in Sydney.

The bar

The Doss House in Sydney. It is the cutest little Irish bar that plays live Irish music on a Sunday.

The hobby

Going to the gym. I truly am a much happier person when I'm in the routine of going to the gym five or six times a week. It's an outlet for me, and it clears my mind.

The part of my body

Probably my eyes. They're Conor's favourite part of me, too.

The virtue

Kindness. You never know what's going on in people's lives, so it's important to be kind. The world could do with a little bit more of it nowadays.

The vice

I love sugar and chocolate. I don't think I could go a day without chocolate and if I did, it'd be a sad day!

The taste

Sourdough bread. I could eat it for every meal, every day.
