A memorable night out > This night out hasn’t happened yet but in January we are planning my 18th birthday party. Hopefully I will have my party at ‘As You Like It’ in Jesmond where we always have our staff parties, I will have all my friends and family there. Afterwards a night out in Newcastle. I can’t wait.

Perfect Party > I love summer parties. Having a BBQ in the garden with friends is always fun.

Best outfit > I have recently bought a little black dress from Ted Baker, I am yet to wear it for a special occasion. On a normal day I like to wear jeans and a nice top and heels. If I am not wearing heels, I wear pumps, my favourite pumps are my Vivienne Westwood ones.

Dinner date > If I am not having a dinner and a night at the cinema with Richard, I wouldn’t say no to a date with Brooklyn Beckham!
