The entrepreneur chats about her favourite people, places and things.

The person

Spencer, my two-year-old son. He is the greatest part of my life. The best thing that has ever happened to me. Everything I do is for him.

The memory

The moment Spencer was born. He was handed to me straightaway, and I just couldn't believe he was my son. My baby. I think back at that moment now, and get all emotional.

The moment of the day

I'm at my most productive at about 10am. I'll usually have been through the important emails I need to cover by that time, and around 10am, I can look at the creative content and products.

The song

Maria Maria by Santana. I just love this song. It reminds me of holidays.

The movie

The Jazz Singer with Neil Diamond. It was the last movie I watched with my dad before he passed away.

The hero

My husband, Barry. He really is my hero. I adore him. We work together as well, and he always knows the right thing to do or to say.

The book

The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss. I have read it a number of times. I haven't nailed it yet, but someday I plan on getting there!

The outfit

The dress I wore when I won Image Young Businesswoman Of The Year! It was by Needle & Thread, and it was knee-length and sparkly! I wore it with a super high pair of Louboutins. I will never forget that day, or that outfit.

The accessory

My dad's watch. He used to wear it every day, and now when I wear it, I think of him.

The gadget

The original InStyler Max. I use it on my hair every other day. It gives that blow-dried look, with a soft beachy wave.

The pet hate

A weak cup of tea. The worst is when someone makes it and you have to drink it, so you don't offend them.

The friend

I can't choose one. I have some amazingly supportive friends, and if I was to just choose one, I'd upset the others, and I can't do that!

The beauty product

The LanaiBLO hairdryer in the new limited-edition colour, electric candy. It's the lightest, fastest hairdryer on the market, with a super long cord, and it can be personalised.

The bar

Astral in Marbella, Spain. It has the best cocktails on the planet.

The holiday

Marbella - I've been going there for years, but now it's even more special with Spencer. I get to show him all the places I went when I was his age, when I was there with my parents.

The piece of advice

Sometimes not taking the risk is the biggest risk of all.

The drink

Bombay Sapphire gin and Schweppes Slimline Elderflower Tonic Water. Yum!

The hotel

The Zoetry in Mexico. It's a small boutique hotel, and it's just perfect for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

The hobby

I used to go horse riding. I don't have the time now, but I really miss it. I feel free when I'm on a horse, and galloping as fast as the horse wants to go. It's an incredible feeling.

The part of my body

My hair. Between Gold Fever [hair extensions], InStyler and LanaiBLO as my tools, my hair is definitely the best part of my body.

The celebrity

The comedian Michael McIntyre. He's just so funny. When I can't sleep at night and my mind is racing, I put on one of his shows on YouTube, and, after a few minutes, I relax.

The virtue

Honesty. It's always best to be honest.

The vice

Coffee. I would drink approximately five cups a day.

The smell

Molton Brown Heavenly Gingerlily.

The taste

Cadbury's Mint Crisp.
