MY DAY STARTS WITH...

Looking after Mini, our pug. Starting with a walk around our local area and snapping far too many photos of her. Basically, just giving her the attention she deserves.

FOLLOWED BY...

A run through the Rye countryside or along Camber Sands or Winchelsea beach. I'm very lucky to live really close to them all, so I can change my route every day. I run, on average, between 5-8 km every other morning.

I LIKE TO WORK...

From our big kitchen table. I'm busy five days a week at the moment, working on clothing designs for the Hobbs SS21 collection with a focus on our tailored dresses and separates. As it involves lots of lovely creative sketching, it's great to have plenty of space to spread out!

AFTER WORK...

I like to go for a walk. There are so many local footpaths to discover, and I'm really enjoying wandering along them and finding out where they lead!

THE WEEKEND BEGINS...



Around 5pm on a Friday with our weekly music night at home. My husband and I will decide the theme in the morning and choose two songs each to get the playlist started! As soon as the music goes on that's my cue to make the martinis – extra dry with a twist of lemon is best!

TO UNWIND I...



Have been getting the garden ready for summer. So I've been doing lots of planting and weeding. Then, lounging on our outdoor sofa with a good book and soaking up the sunshine.
