What do you like to wear for a big night out? Dress, big heels and a handbag sorted!
Tell us about your biggest fashion mistake. There are a few, back in the day I wore tracksuit bottoms tucked into socks with my Rockports on because was a litle chav. Never again! have realised socks should not been seen unless theyre sexy suspenders or over the knee socks you wear with skirts and shorts.


Whos your favourite designer?
dont really have a favourite but would say Marc Jacobs if had to pick. His bags are amazing, have a few.


Whos been the biggest influence on your personal style?
I steal a bit of everyones fashion. Im more a jeans, Nike Air Tops and hoodie girl. Being comfy is more my thing then being the best dressed in the room.


What is your favourite high street shop?
Primark, H&M, River Island, Top Shop, New Look and a boutique in Ashington called Fluer its amazing and super cheap.


What perfume do you wear?
Alien by Angel and DKNY.


Which hair and beauty products are in your bathroom?
Id lost without my Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. Other than that, Aussie hair shampoos and conditioners, Aveda hair products, Simple facewash and Body Shop products!


Are you a gym body?
No way love Nandos and cake way too much. Im a natural skinny minnie.


Who do you regard as the most stylish man and woman of the last 100 years?
Michael Jackson as he is just simply a hero and want his sparkly glove. And Lady Gaga as she isnt afraid to push the boat out and everything she wears is just crazy and out there!
