LUXE PEOPLE >>

This might sound a bit naff, but my husband Martin is my inspiration.

LUXE PLACES >>

For a weekend > Bodysgallen Hall near Llandudno is our favourite for weekends away. The food is great, as are the views of Snowdonia. We enjoy long walks and picnics on the beaches of Anglesey. Perfect.

A long holiday > With good friends in St. Tropez. Relaxing by the pool, people watching in Club 55 or enjoying fabulous seafood at La Bouillabaisse. Can’t beat it.

A treat > Seal watching in the Isle of Skye.

LUXE RELAX >>

Best food > Cold ham and eggs with or without chips.

Best wine > Pink fizz on special occasions.

Best restaurant > The Yorke Arms, Ramsgill-in-Nidderdale or The Oaktree Inn, Hutton Magna. It’s impossible to choose between them.

Perfect weekend > At home, big log fire, hubby, dog and a bottle of red wine warming in the hearth.

Best telly > Masterchef.

Best theatre > Sunderland Empire, but we only tend to do the ballet or the opera.

Best sounds > David Bowie, James Taylor and The Magic Numbers.

LUXE SHOP >>

Best shopping city > Newcastle – of course!

Favourite shop > Jo Malone.

Retail treat > Run riot in Fenwicks then lunch at Café Royal.

LUXE PARTY >>

A memorable night out > My ‘special’ birthday party. A private do at The Oaktree Inn with all our closest friends. Ali (chef) and Claire did us proud. The food was delicious and we danced and laughed the night away!

Perfect party > As above, but I’d love to include some dear friends and family who are no longer with us – just for old times sake.

Perfect night out > We don’t do many nights out. But lunchtime fish and chips at Colmans with the hubby takes a lot of beating.

Best outfit > A Joseph full-length shearling coat. You can pretty much wear anything underneath it. I like to think of it as an investment.

Dinner date > I think Alan Bennett would make a great dinner companion. Lets hope he’s a good listener!

YOUR LUXE THING IN LIFE >>

Axel our wire-haired German pointer. He’s as luxe as it gets!
