What do you like doing on your day off?
Normally it's catching up on house work, because I'm always making or creating something, so the house work is always put off.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
My favourite meal is in the Bridge bar in Bundoran after a morning in the water, surfing, it's great to get warm hearty food. I also love the food in the Parsons Nose in Hillsborough.

What has been your proudest moment?
Buying my first house.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
Buying my first house.

How would you describe your taste in clothes?
I love having something different, but I like to mix vintage and new. A statement piece is always required. Working in a charity shop you pick up amazing clothes.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Pay off my mortgage, buy a camper van and go travelling with my boyfriend, Sobaka the dog and no maps.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
28 years of age and I'm still driving a pink car.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday?
My best holiday was a weekend at Sea Sessions, great music, great weather, great friends and great craic. My dream holiday would be to go to Hawaii.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
To go to New York and spend lots of money.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
It would have to Barrick Obama, to see what his day contains, but also to get a nosey in the first ladies wardrobe.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
My iPad, my boyfriend and our surf boards.
