What's your favorite restaurant in London? 

I have many! But I would have to say Pizza East (part of the Soho House Group) for great food guaranteed and atmosphere.

Where's one place a visitor to London should go?

To the Tate Modern on the Southbank, the scale is huge! And the exhibitions that take place are always fascinating 

How would you describe your personal style?

Go with the flow - inspired by chill/yoga clothes, hip hop and hippies! Am loving the new 90's style Guess x A$AP Rocky Collection! It has a cool 'Saved By The Bell' feel

Do you have a place to relax and to get away from the bustle of the city?

Yes! Kensington Gardens is a beautiful park to wander around, come rain or shine it always has a sense of calm and chill

Ibiza and Los Angeles are my 2 favorite places that I feel most at home, when away from home!

Notting Hill Arts Club is definitely up there and Sketch is also always a good night out.

Where is your favorite place to shop before a night out on the town?

Selfridges when feeling flush :) or Zara when I want that high-end style and quality at a good price.

Definitely, there's so many different influences in London; cultures, clothing styles, music styles, food, there's constant inspiration all around
