The best thing about being a mother is…?

Knowing that there's an entire human being that is solely depending on you and looks up to you is amazing. Just having the power to set an environment for them that is safe and secure and making sure all their needs are cared for is most definitely the best thing.

Which do you prefer, a wild night of partying or staying in and binging Netflix?

Staying in and binging on Netflix. I like my space and cosy settings. I have time for parties, but most of the time I prefer being at home in my comfortable zone.

If you were able to go back in time and change one moment in your life, which moment would that be?

Haven’t had not dated any of my exes.

You are only able to shop at one clothes store for the rest of your life, which clothes store do you choose?

I would go for an online shop, Chic Me. I'm currently buying most of my clothes there and I love all their styles.
