How do you like to spend a day off?

First I start off by making breakfast which is usually a bowl of porridge and a hot lemon water. Afterwards i'll use the Headspace app for a guided meditation. I'll throw on some comfy clothes and get ready to walk the dog on the beach whilst listening to my favourite podcast The High Low by Pandora Sykes and Dolly Alderton. I'll usually stop by a local shop to pick up some ingredients for lunch. I really enjoy baking on my day off, so I'll scroll through Pinterest to find a recipe I've been meaning to try and get to work. I like to find time to sit with a peppermint tea and read for a while. I head to a yoga and spin class in the evening and then when I return its straight to the bath for a long soak while I listen to my Spotify playlist, then I'll head to the kitchen to prepare dinner with Jamie.

 

Favourite childhood memory?

We are an outdoorsy family and are always walking, hiking or camping somewhere in Wales, The Lake District or The Peak District. Every year my family, a group of around twenty, head off to a campsite in the middle of nowhere and set up camp for a week. We have been doing this since I was around 12 months old so for me, those yearly holidays are my most cherished memories.

MGMT, The Drums, Cigarettes After Sex, Foster The People, Hers, Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys.
