First thing you did this morning? Wake up, check my email, shower and dress for the day before getting my kids up at 7 closely followed by breakfast of fresh Iggy’s spelt bread with avocado and a few cups of tea.
What does 'wellness' mean to you? Looking after myself. 8 hours sleep a night, yoga at least 3 times a week and a well balanced diet. I’m keeping it realistic at the moment. I am in a particularly busy spell. I’ve been through healthier and fitter stages in my life but I’m keeping things achievable at the moment as my life is busy. It’s guilt free this way-under promise and over deliver. Balance is key.
Products found in your shower/by your bath? Buly body oil, Rationale face cleanser, Omorovicza exfoliator, evo shampoo (best) and conditioner and too many kids toys.
Three things that can always be found in your kitchen cupboard? Lots of tea, good olive oil and fresh Iggys.
Favourite kitchen utensil? The kettle and my teapot.
Favourite Travel destination? Anywhere I haven’t been before. I like to discover new places. Travel helps me to keep my eyes open. It’s very important to me and my creative process.
Currently reading? Let my people go Surfing
Currently browsing (.com)? Phillips.com, 1st dibs, Qantas.com
Favourite breakfast food? Fresh bread or an egg white omelette
Three items in your wallet / bag? Laptop, diary (always a Smythson) and Lucy folk sunglasses.
An album/mix that calms your nervous system? Munir Bashir’s art of the ‘ûd
An album/mix that hypes you up? Words by F r David - okay he was a one hit wonder but that song gets me going.
Most commonly used apps on your phone? Mail, Qantas, Radiooooo, BBC iplayer, blinkist,

One thing you'd like to incorporate into your day/week that you're currently yet to? Horse riding, Italian lessons, more reading, seeing more plays, live music, movies, the list is endless. Sorry you did say one but....
Nighttime rituals? Cook a healthy dinner, a glass of red wine, chat and bat-gammon with my husband.
I feel most creatively fulfilled when... I’m traveling with my family.
I'm currently working on... A handful of homes, a restaurant, two hotels, a boat, the launch of my husbands new women’s line P Johnson Femme and my furniture showroom in Paddington.
This time last year, I wish I knew... How cheeky toddlers are.
I'm grateful for... My husband, family, friends and my beautiful clients.
