The loves of my life... entrepreneur Kate Gallagher
The financial adviser and entrepreneur chats about her favourite people, places and things
I have so many people that I could name, but my boyfriend Paul - small Paulie; my dad, Paul, and my two sisters, Amy and Sophie, are all my 'person'.
The days on the beach in Spain, as kids, with my mom and my aunty Carol. We used to arrive like the Brady Bunch. Six kids, two adults, the kitchen sink and endless bottles of rose - for the adults, of course! Not a care in the world.
The moment of the day
Getting into my PJs and ready for bed at night. My friends call me Biddy, or Bid, because I go to bed so early. I feel so much better when I've had a busy and productive day, and then I can hop into bed and cosy up.
I can't choose one, so here are my top three! Maggie May and Baby Jane by Rod Stewart, and Simply the Best by Tina Turner.
Anything with Julia Roberts, especially Pretty Woman. I also love a good thriller, so movies starring Denzel Washington are always enticing.
I'm terrible at finishing books, I always end up nodding off. If I'm honest, when I hear of a good read, I normally wait for it to come out in the cinema!
My hero has to be my dad, Paul. He is the most loving, caring and funniest man I know. Myself and my two sisters have him driven demented at times - and vice versa - but we are all best friends, and we'd be lost without him.
When I'm not in my activewear with my hair tied up in a bun on the top of my head, I love winter wear. Skinny jeans, with a good pair of boots, and a nice coat with a hat is my go-to.
I recently treated myself to a Raymond Weil watch. I had my eye on it for months. I'm so proud of it.
My phone. I hate to say it, but Instagram is a terrible addiction.
The pet hate
People chewing down the phone.
I have a very close group of friends and we have been there for each other through both the good and bad. I couldn't possibly pick just one! Friends are the recipe to life.
The beauty product
Anything that makes me bronzed.
Rome. I went a couple of years ago for three days and I really loved it. I had no expectations going over, but it was probably my most memorable trip to date. The food, the sightseeing, the people and, of course, the shoe shops! It's a must-do city break. I'd go back in a heartbeat.
Hotels that have a spa, or hotels that are situated in places with spectacular views. The Europe Hotel in Killarney is next on my list, as it has both!
The piece of advice
I'm a firm believer in the saying 'what's for you won't pass you'. Although at times it may be hard to believe, but if you hang on in there, it will all work out in the end.
A glass of bubbly with a raspberry normally does the job.
You can't beat the typical 'old man' pub, with a bit of live traditional music.
Between my full-time job in finance and working on my new footwear brand, Sofia Footwear, in my spare time, I don't have much free time. But I love going for an evening stroll for a bit of fresh air.
The part of my body
Probably my feet. I am between a size three and a four so I always get the best bargains when it comes to shoes!
Olivia Palermo, her style is so classy and chic.
Kindness and loyalty.
