Favourite pitstop?

Too many to choose, but probably somewhere nice to have brunch, like Flax and Kale.

Mountains or beach?

As a child I always used to spend the weekends and holidays in the mountains but now I definitely prefer the beach – winter or summer.

Eat in or Eat out?

Eat out.

Diet or exercise?


Facebook or phone?


Reading books or watching TV?

When I watch TV or read at night I last no more than 10 minutes before I fall asleep! But movies keep me awake – both at home with my super projector or at the cinema.

Hard sell or soft sell?

Soft sell.

Home or away – Barcelona or somewhere else?

Both, although if I could, I would travel more often!

I couldn’t get through the weekend without…

A long breakfast on a Sunday with a magazine or Pinterest!
