What is your favourite city and why?

To be honest, I'm not really a London girl, I love the country air and big open spaces. Saying that, I love London and have lived here for 6 years. I love the amazing restaurants we have, there is so much choice and so many amazing chefs. We have beautiful parks too, great for long walks with my dog.

Top three things that you like to do in your favourite city?

Go for dinner, my favourite restaurants are The Modern Pantry, (brilliant food combinations, love her style!), The Summerhouse, (local fish restaurant on the canal in Maida Vale), Maguro, (local Japanese in Maida Vale, totally delicious, try the Black Cod!) and Polpo, (perfect place to meet friends and eat good food!). I also love going to all the food markets, my favourite is broadway market, so much variety and amazing produce. Im also a big walker, there is nothing like a long walk in Richmond Park followed by a big salad at Petersham Nurseries.

Favourite place to eat in Europe?

Take me to Italy any day. I am obsessed with truffles and (although not detox) a girl needs to have a big bowl of pasta covered in truffles, every now and again! 

Favourite place to eat from the rest of the world?

Indian or Thai food. I have been lucky enough to travel to both countries and have taken so much influence from both places. I love Keralan food, they use lots of finely chopped vegetables and generally serve it with fish or gigantic prawns! In Thailand, I could live off of their Green Papaya salad "Som Tam", it is too delicious for words and very nutritious.

Favourite place to stay in Europe?

I stayed in Budapest a few months ago in a hotel called Brody House, it was very cool. Its a great city too, full of lots of coffee shops and windy streets. 

Favourite place to stay from the rest of the world?

My little brother lives in New York and its great fun going to stay out there with him for a week or two. But I have to say, nothing beats lying on a beach in Goa.

Best book to read on holiday?

Has to be Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

Favourite product from www.frecklesinthesun.com?

The NYC Gold Dove Charm Necklace

Recommended person to follow on Twitter?
