WHY DO YOU BELIEVE WE ALL NEED A BIT MORE TRULY IN OUR LIVES?

The fact that Truly takes pride in making life that bit easier is a huge plus for me. Not serving up pages and pages of products but bespoke collections that are timeless makes it stand out from the huge fast throwaway fashion companies of today.

Presuming you are currently in the job of your dreams… what drives you at work? 

No one wants to spend hours browsing through a website so as an Online Merchandiser Manager I’m here to make the journey to purchase as easy and seamless as possible. I love finding out what the issues are for a customer and then removing them. Creating bespoke journeys for customers to show them the most relevant product and at the right time makes their lives that little bit easier.

What’s your favourite Truly product?

I love a stylish yet functional product, like a dress with pockets. So, although it’s a men’s product, I am obsessed with the leather backpack! After seeing a video of it on social media it became my next product to buy. Laptop bags are usually bulky and ugly, but this is sleek, stylish, has room for extras and a little pocket for a phone. It’s just perfect for anyone commuting or just on the go.

Do you have any extra-curricular hobbies or passions? How do you relax?

Nothing can beat a good cocktail and a laugh with friends, so I’m usually found somewhere in the sunshine relaxing with a glass of wine. I have a slight shopping addiction so usually squeeze in a shopping trip or two and then go home and make everyone experience my experimental cooking. I like to say I will try anything at least twice which has resulted in my love of skiing so I try to go each year with my mum and sister.

This is Bonnie and she is my little fur baby, she’s definitely turned me into a crazy cat lady! One day I’m determined to open up an animal sanctuary so I can spend my days caring for fluffy things. 

What would your last supper be?

It would have to be Greek meze, granted it does make your breath smell awful, but all of the flavours and colours just make it the best meal to share with friends or family.

If you could take a trip anywhere, where would you go? What kind of trip would it be?

I would travel across South America, making sure I could strut my stuff in the Rio carnival, or something more cultural in Peru like Machu Picchu. I would love to have a mud bath in a volcano in Colombia, ride the Devils Nose train in Ecuador then over to Angel Falls in Venezuela. I really need to start saving!

Let’s talk constellations. What star sign are you? What typical traits do you have?

I’m an Aquarius so here are some of my key traits:

  • She has her own set of rules
  • She demands equality and unlimited freedom
  • She has her own unique thoughts, ideas, morals, and standards
  • She’s highly opinionated and will hold her own no matter what
  • She won’t let someone’s opinion change her  whilst predictably unpredictable and stubborn
  • She has a “live and let live” attitude about life 
  • She sees everything from her own unique perspective

I definitely think those traits sum me up perfectly!
