My favourite website… Ocado - It is a godsend when I have no time to do the grocery shop and I love food shopping. My husband is a fantastic cook so I do the shopping and he does the cooking.

My favourite app… Instagram - I love the immediacy of being able to capture a new style we produce and get an instant reaction from our customers and followers.

My blog of choice… The London Chatter - I love Kelly’s insights into fashion and lifestyle.

My internet hero… Natalie Massenet - Natalie has transformed the fashion world. What she has done for online shopping is incredible.

My favourite podcasts… Ted Talks - There is such a wide variety of informative speakers. I particularly loved Ken Robinson's talk about the issues surrounding our children's education in the future with the advancement of AI.

My most recent buy online… Chantecaille Future Skin foundation from Space NK. It gives me confidence that my skin will be blemish free going from day into night.

Favourite tweeter… I don’t use Twitter.

Social media allowed me to meet… I have met lots of wonderful influencers and bloggers such as Becky from Bricks & Stitches, Kat from Does My Bum Look 40, Jane from Lulu Dumas.
