M-SEW: Where did you grow up?
What’s your favourite spot in your house/room/space?
Hmmm - my living room has become so many things during lockdown; a gym, my office, a studio space but my favourite area is the reading nook that is positioned in our window bay. It's perfect for a good book and some tea.
Film: Original music by Aden Peets.
What was your favourite book/film/song during lockdown?
I made it my mission to work through my reading list during lockdown and I really, really enjoyed 'Queenie' by Candice Carty-Williams. It was a charming, honest and funny depiction of the many complexities of life; following the protagonist through the journey of mental health, being black in Britain and carving out her own identity.
How have you changed during lockdown?
Lockdown converted me to being a believer in home workouts. I've been the most consistent I've ever been so there's no going back!
What new skills did you learn during lockdown?
I became a plant parent! I'm still learning how to not kill them but I'm proud of my little oasis at home.
What’s your personal lockdown/WFH style?
For Zoom, a smart-casual shirt up top and sweatpants on the bottom! Otherwise you'll find me in gym gear and tracksuits.
Where’s your first trip post lockdown?
A trip to Greece was on the list for 2020 so that still needs to happen at some point (hopefully sooner than later!).
Who did you talk to the most during lockdown?
My husband, Wilson. We survived lockdown together which apparently means we've reach elite level in marriage lol.
What’s the most surprising thing you learnt about yourself during lockdown
There are MANY ways to cook chicken lol!
Favourite inspirational quote during lockdown?
This goes past lockdown but "Black Lives Matter"
A good catch up for sure. We're going to see if we can become plant parents too! :)
