Real Daddy's Girl

Cooking: Richard Corrigan or ready-made?

I have aspirations of being like Nigella but with my lifestyle it's a ready-meal more often than I'd like.

Wardrobe: Penneys or Prada?

Neither really; I wear clothes from my own label, Daddy Larry, or I shop from local designers as found in The Loft Market and Powerscourt Townhouse.

Fashion: victim or setter?

As a designer I would hope to be considered a trendsetter.

Shopping: twice a season or twice a week?

Twice a season.

Holidays: Discover Ireland or discover the world?

The world.

Drink: Guinness or Grey Goose?

I have a nice glass of red to relax and a kicking Caipirinha for fun times.

Friends: quantity or quality?

Quality, you can't beat a good shoulder.

Weekends: the local or cruising Krystle?

Definitely the local. I like a good chat and great craic when I'm out.

Beauty regime: one minute or one hour?

I don't have time for rituals, although my housemates would say I take ages in the shower.

Money: rainy day or live for today?

I'm a spend-now-worry-later person.

Commute: public transport or pay the meter?

I tend to walk a lot, but I do get the odd taxi.

Property: smell the sea or see the smog?

I'm a city girl at heart.

Pets: dog devotee or cat crusader?

Cats rule.

Health: alternative or aspirin?

I would tend to try natural methods before taking medicine.

Location: Northside notable or southside star?

I'm from Kildare, but have lived in different areas of Dublin, so, as a blow-in, I'll say both are great!

Technology: Facebook or face-off?

I'm on Facebook but rarely use it.

Reading: chick-lit or not in a fit?

Most of the stack of books beside my bed seem to be about spiritual enlightenment and new beginnings.

On your iPod: Beyoncé or Bach?

I've just discovered an album by Propellerheads I'm enjoying, but I'm a sucker for anything Latino.

TV: reality or real TV drama?

A good BBC drama wins hands down but I was hooked on this season's Apprentice.
