To me, success is.... happiness and work-life balance.

Being a working woman today means... tenacity, passion and a lot of hustle. 

The career tip I would give my younger self is... Take risks and don't worry about what other people will say. Have confidence in yourself, your abilities and your talents.  

This book changed my life because..."On Becoming Fearless...in Love, Work, and Life" by Arianna Huffington. It inspired me to have more courage, look to overcome my anxieties, and take a leap into my dream career journey. 

My guiltiest pleasure is... having a very indulgent bath by candlelight, my favourite scent is my Palmier candle. I love to take a long soak, close my eyes and dream of faraway places.

The invite list to my ultimate dinner party includes...Walt Disney, Alicia Keys, Elizabeth Gilbert, Richard Branson, Sheryl Sandberg, Brigitte Bardot, Rothko, Michelle Obama, Robin Williams.

I consider my greatest achievement so far to have been....following my dream and starting Elizabeth Scarlett.  

The most important lesson life has taught me is... be kind, true and trust your instincts.
