Big thank you from


Natalie JohnstonNatalie Johnston, 28, Doagh near Templepatrick. Anorak Creatives is a young, forward-thinking design studio based at Lisburn enterprise Centre with her business partner Nuala Mclroy.

What do you like doing on your day off?
Usually I either end up researching something about work on my mac at home or I go up to my parents and help them decorate their new house or head out with them for the day.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
Japanese at Zen Restaurant in Belfast. The most beautiful food, and relaxing surroundings, I love it. Real quality and without a doubt the best Cocktails I've ever tasted.

What has been your proudest moment?
To start my own business.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
When my dad took a major heart attack and was saved just in time.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
Individual, edgy, with a boyish slant but tasteful.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Give half to charity and sort out all my family and friends with the rest of it.

What music do you like?
I actually love a bit of everything, from pop to rock, quality house and trance, soppy stuff to wee bit of classical, hip hop to electro and funky house.

What sports person do you most admire?
Mickey Harte, manager of Tyrone GAA. Not that I support Tyrone, lets get that clear. I support Derry. But Mickey Harte is truly an inspirational, very caring and modest man who talks total sense and is someone to be admired. I could listen to him all day.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
Best ever holiday was in San Francisco. I just love their laid back Californian way of life, their food and their accents. Beautiful place and so easy to navigate plus its full of unusual shops and places to go to. Dream holiday at the moment is to go to Vegas.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
It is definitely to see my business become really successful so that I can make my parents comfortable to pay them back for all the things they have did for me in my life. That is the one thing I want most, to make them comfortable.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
My family (that includes my wee pet Yorkie), my partner and my closest friends.
