my perfect weekend

On Friday night I'd: Often head to the cinema. I love a good movie. Of course, I have to have all the munchies, too – nachos, Diet Coke and ice-cream. With work the next morning it's a perfect Friday night out.

My favourite stiff drink is: I'm not a big drinker, but when I am out I am very fond of a glass of bubbly or a Bacardi and Diet Coke.

Saturday morning lie-on or gym session: Neither as, being in the retail business, Saturday morning always means work. But it would definitely be a lie-in if I was off.

My favourite item of clothing is: That's a tough one, it's hard to pick. I do love quality fabrics, so anything from Jackpot, In Wear or Part Two. At the moment, I'm loving my fitted leather jacket from Jackpot. It's in a lovely mink colour, is a great shape on and it goes with absolutely everything.

My Saturday night fever: I try to get home to Kerry as much as I can at the weekends during the summer, and there is nothing nicer than going for a meal with friends and family to the Stonehouse or Cassidys followed by drinks in my favourite pub, Baileys Corner in Tralee.

My favourite hangover cure: Thankfully, it doesn't happen too often, but it would have to be sleep followed by a big fry-up and definitely some Nurofen.

On Sunday I rest by: Simply taking it easy and reading the paper. Sunday is my only day off and I cherish it. I had been doing lots of walking in preparation for the Moonwalk in London, but I completed it recently so I can go back to taking it easy again.

I'm currently reading: Fashion: The Ultimate Book of Costume and Style by Judith Watt. Every generation reinvents fashion and this book is very well done. It covers from the medieval period to the current designer decades, it's one I can dip in and out of.

My last supper: Would be with family and friends having a simple but delicious roast

chicken dinner with my mother's amazing stuffing, along with all of the trimmings. This, of course, would have to be followed by a selection of desserts.
