The model on her wedding plans with her fiancé Paul and her punctuality:

The person

My fiance, Paul. We got engaged in June of this year, and are now beginning to plan our wedding. He is my backbone, my rock.

The memory

Spending quality time with my father the day before he passed away suddenly in 2008

The moment of the day

First thing in the morning, when I hear my eight-month-old son, Harry, waking up in his room. Seeing his little face light up when he sees me is the best way to start the day

The song

James Bay, Move Together. His voice is so calming and relaxing

The movie

This Is 40. I am a sucker for light, silly comedies

The hero

My mother, Anna. She has had so many obstacles put in her way in life - most recently beating breast cancer - and she still continues to view life with such enthusiasm and positivity

The book

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. Absolutely gripping

The outfit

Skinny jeans, strappy heels and a simple top. This is my go-to for nights out. Simple, effortless and stylish

The accessory

One of my many pairs of sunglasses! I am a sucker for sunnies, and have every style and colour imaginable. I wouldn't leave the house without at least two pairs with me

The gadget

My iPhone 6 Plus. It is permanently attached to my hand. I use it for blogging, social media, work emails, phone calls and contacting friends

The pet hate

Lateness. I have an irrational fear of being late for an appointment, and I can't stand when others are late. I used to think that having a baby was the cause, but even with Harry, I am always on time for everything

The friend

My friend Stephanie, whom I met when I was 18 and was studying make-up artistry. We have been best friends ever since

The beauty product

Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan Mousse. There is not a day that goes by that I am not wearing this tan

The holiday

Marbella. My all-time favourite place, and where we plan on getting hitched in the future

The bar

Sams Bar on Dawson Street

The piece of advice

This too, shall pass. I have the tendency to overthink and panic about things. But my family always go back to this quote, and it is so true

The drink

A mojito. They remind me of my first holiday with Paul to Marbella

The hotel

The g Hotel, Galway. Pure luxury, and the most amazing decor

The hobby

Blogging, although I have now turned my hobby into my career, which is the ultimate dream

The part of my body

My eyes. I usually try to emphasise my blue eyes when I am doing my make-up, and I am thrilled that Harry got my big, blue eyes too!

The celebrity

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - she's my ultimate girl crush

The virtue


The vice


The smell

Jo Malone White Jasmine & Mint

The taste

Sweet-potato fries
