My car of choice

My dream car would be the Mercedes pagoda, it’s a classic vintage car, which is timeless.  I currently drive a BMW, having two children this is the ideal family car. I also have very fond memories, pre kids, of driving our convertible Porsche across France and Switzerland.

My favourite holiday destination

I love beach holidays, so, for me, anywhere with white sandy beaches. The South of France is a favourite of mine, and Greek Islands are always a wonderful relaxing break or the Maldives. However, coming from Lithuania, I do miss snow, so Christmas holidays in a chalet with a frozen lake for skating in the middle of the woods is also magical.

My gadget I can’t live without

My iPhone, it combines work and family into one and it’s just super handy. You can download apps which help your day to day and, basically, I couldn’t live without it. I am excited about the new launch later in the year and will definitely be upgrading my phone, other than that I am not a big gadget person.

My go to fashion brand

As a personal stylist this is such a hard question. I love to mix high end with high street, I also try and support new independent brands as much as possible, for me it’s about the quality of the piece rather than the price tag. My favourites at the moment are Ganni, YSL and Zara.

My airline of choice

Good question. I tend to always book and travel with British Airways, I just find the airline has never let me down, the staff are always friendly and the airline is good for short and long haul flights. I will though look at options, as if we are heading to Dubai we might fly Emirates or for Australia we might use Qantas.

My favourite watch brand 

So few people wear watches nowadays. I am a watch user and love them, they not only add to the wrist, but also are very handy. My go to brands are Cartier and IWC as I find their selection, beautiful elegant and wearable.

My favourite restaurant

I am London based, so for a low key dinner I would recommend Goya in Pimlico. It is a delicious tapas bar, wonderful food, wine and service. I am also a fan of Core by Clare Smyth, also in London, and would highly recommend a meal here.

My guilty pleasure

I love ice cream. We have an ice cream parlour very near us, its just exceptional and I tend to take the children as a treat. I also have a love of renovation programmes, I always fancied going on Grand Designs.

My favourite way to give back

I have worked in the industry for a long time, I receive a lot of gifts. I never hold onto things, I always gift on or share with my family and friends. I try and be as generous to others as others are to me. I also donate to several charities and help to raise money for my children’s school.
