In my spare time I love to read and bake cakes. Lemon drizzle cake is my speciality! I’m also learning to knit. I love living in London – particularly because it is such a great place to go shopping. There are some superb shopping areas where you can find all the big designers alongside little boutiques, vintage clothes emporiums and high street shops. My favourite place to shop at the moment is Covent Garden. Camden Market is another great place to find something a little bit different – there are stalls selling beautiful handmade clothes and jewellery and I always buy lots of Christmas presents there. I also enjoy going out to eat in Camden. There is an amazing range of restaurants to choose from – Spanish, Thai, Brazilian, or a good old traditional British fish and chips!
