1.Tell me what you are wearing in the picture and why it’s your favourite going out outfit?
I love this H&M tribal print playsuit with bell sleeves, it is so easy to wear, but it just feels so stylish and I love to dress it up with jewellery. I think Playsuits are perfect for so many different occasions, from festivals to dinner, you can’t go wrong! plus it’s so comfortable so that dessert is never a bad idea!
2. How often do you get to go on nights out?
Not very often! We only have 2 sets of babysitters and often we need to call on them to cover work duties so it’s usually every few months.
3.Where is your favourite place to go on a night out? ( e.g. favourite bar / restaurant/concert )
We tend to go on date days, like a trip up to the city, just doing things we can’t usually do like taking our time over lunch, with wine! Then on to a show or drinks before getting the train home.
4.How much do you normally spend on an outfit and where do you like to shop?
I usually shop on the high street, anywhere from French Connection to Primark! I’ve got more into Topshop again now that I’m not pregnant although it always makes me feel so old! I guess around £80 but sometimes you can pick up some great bits in more affordable stores and online.
5.How long does it take you to get ready?
Well as I spend every other day of my life getting ready within 3 minutes I like to take as much time as I can – around an hour – but I’m always late and constantly hearing “how are you getting on there love” called up the stairs from my patient husband!!
6.What is your favourite drink?
Salted Caramel Espresso Martini – I had them last time we went out to The Ivy, Chelsea Garden and it was literally heaven!! Stuart and I usually drink red wine when we drink together.
7. Do you have a party trick?
Falling asleep – not exactly a party trick but I’m guaranteed to do it (I’ve even managed to sleep during a concert and in a club!)
8. What’s the most you have ever spent on an item of clothing/accessory?
Probably my Mulberry handbags, I’m a sucker for a pretty bag!
9.What’s your No1 tip for getting ready with kids in the house?
Oh God, it’s a nightmare – the boys are obsessed with playing with my make up!! I have to try to do it while they are distracted by eating dinner or when Stuart is there to entertain them. If we are going for dinner I tend to get showered and do my hair before they go to bed then finish off my make up just before we go out when Stuart is there to help.
10. If you could have a night out anywhere in the world where would it be, why that location and what would you do on the night out?
Hmmmm. Gosh, SO many places I could choose!! Ok. One New Year’s eve we spent in San Diego and we went to an Irish bar where we spent the night dancing and singing and having fun with so many friendly strangers who just made us feel so welcomed. It wasn’t over the top & fancy like some of the amazing things we’ve been lucky to do, but it felt like a movie, and I’d love to do it again.
