WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR?
I am thankful for my family, have always been and especially now in these dire times, I even feel it deeper than before.
FAVOURITE LOCAL HANGOUT?
Chelsea Green where there is a lovely pizzeria, organic market, fishmonger, pharmacy and more.
My flowers, I can put a smile on anyone’s face…it’s almost like my superpower. I love to design them, transform venues with them and lose track of time as I work with them.
CURRENT BIGGEST CHALLENGE?
The value of now. Time is the only thing we cannot reverse, we cannot change. Once it’s gone it’s gone forever. So we have to try and make the most of the moment and be grateful for it. I try to teach it to my kids and it’s my current and probably forever biggest challenge.
WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU?
Sophia Loren, she has been a muse for me all my life. Her family values, love for her work and her discretion.
QUOTE YOU LIVE BY?
“There are two things in life that don’t get smaller as you share…they get larger and bigger and more valuable: knowledge and love! Be wise and generous about them!”-my late grandfather
