The one indulgence you would never forgo? Sunglasses are my guilty pleasure. I really love Tom Ford and Ray-Ban shades.

The grooming staples you are never without? Dermalogica products for skincare. Daily Microfoliant, Skin Smoothing Cream, and Special Cleansing Gel are all part of my skin regimen. I am the fragrance king, and Tom Ford Private Blends are my favourite, especially Tuscan Leather, Tobacco Vanille, and Noir De Noir. The fragrances make a statement wherever you go.

Your all-time favourite gadget? I would have to say my Apple TV. I can find the latest shows in the iStore and binge watch series on Netflix.

The single object you would never part with? Being in public relations you always need a fully charged iPhone. My phone is my lifeline, and I’m always busy on it.

Your favourite drink? I always love drinking a glass of Ashbourne Wine after a long day, to relax and unwind. When I’m socialising with friends, we sip on gin (Bombay Sapphire) and tonics in the sun.

The restaurant you frequent most often? I have been going to Bellinis for a long time because the food is great, consistent, and the service is excellent. It has a lovely atmosphere and I am there at least twice a week.

Your personal style signifier? Definitely my Hermès belt. It is basically my uniform. I bought it years ago in the south of France, and it has even gone to France to get refurbished and came back as good as new. What I love about the belt the most, is that the buckle and leather straps are interchangeable with other colours.

The last item you bought and loved? I love candles, and my favourite purchase so far has to be my Tom Ford Tuscan Leather candle. It fills the room with a rich, sexy aroma.

Your favourite timepiece and why? You can’t go wrong with a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust. It is the epitome of style and class.

An unforgettable place you’ve travelled to in the past year? One of my friends took us to an exclusive villa called Lothian Vineyards in the Elgin Valley for his birthday. It was a weekend to remember, with great friends making memories.

The book on your bedside table? The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer. I recently finished watching her TV show and I think she is hysterical.

The last meal that truly impressed you? My sister recently got married at Babylonstoren, and I was blown away by all the dishes. They were unbelievably presented, with phenomenal flavour. We had a selection of the chicken and lamb, recommended by the chef, and, of course, the wine to go with them.

The last music you downloaded? John Legend is timeless, so I am enjoying his new album, Darkness & Light; James Arthur, Back to the Edge; Solange, A Seat at the Table; and Michael Bublé, Nobody But Me.

The item you are eyeing next? For the longest time I have wanted the Diptyque Un Air from Luminance, which is an electric diffuser. I am very particular with the scent and ambience in my home, and this is a beautiful piece that is also functional.

The one thing you will always find in your fridge? Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, without a doubt. Sometimes I have people stop by, and there is nothing better than opening up a bottle of champagne and sharing it with friends. Then again, you don’t need an occasion to open up a bottle of Veuve Clicquot.

The best gift you’ve given recently? I would say, Russell James’ coffee table book, Angels. It is a collection of images of Victoria’s Secret Angels.

And the best one you’ve received? People that are very close to me have gifted me with various items from Fornasetti and Ralph Lauren to build my collection. Not only are the pieces elegant, but each of them is very sentimental to me.

The place that inspires you and why? I get inspired by different places I go to, see, and experience. I get inspired by people, art, places, music, film, food, and design. I take it all in and adapt it to variations of my life and goals. I am all for aesthetics and beauty.

A recent special find? UberEvents! There is nothing more chic than sending an Uber code to your dinner party guests on their invitation. It shows you want them to arrive and leave safely from your dinner, and that you have taken care of that.

The last item you added to your wardrobe? My Salvatore Ferragamo shoes.

Favourite city? New York is my second home. I resonate with the energy and the pace so much. I have friends in Manhattan and my sister lives in Williamsburg. I love that I can arrive and that I have my rhythm and seamlessly become a New Yorker when I am in the city.
