I was so pleased she took the time to put together this wonderful playlist. I think it sums her up beautifully.
When were you at your happiest?
I'm eternal optimist and generally always happy but you can never beat time out laughing with your friends it’s the most important thing and my favourite pastime.
What’s your greatest fear?
It's best not to live your life in fear im ok with heights, snakes, all that kind of thing. Actually I would be a complete nightmare in the jungle. I like my home comforts nutri bullet and a really high Egyptian cotton thread count on my bedding.
Who do you admire?
Roisin Murphy – impeccable style, super cool and have always loved her music and admired her. I was invited to her house once and she showed me some of her vintage clothing collection. I was totally enamoured by it all.
What trait do you deplore in yourself/ other people?
Im a strong believer of treating people in the same way as you would want to be treated. Im not into hypocritical behaviour and scatty fly away friends that only take your energy and give nothing back also get on my nerves.
What’s your worst habit?
Picking my nail varnish of once its started to chip…I will peel it all of and cant concentrate on anything else until its done.
Coquettish – somebody described me at this when I was doing work experience at college! I love the word and use it often.
Who would you like to say sorry to?
My flatmate for drinking all the almond milk this morning.
Who do you despise?
Anybody self righteous or those that speak for the sake of speaking. Nothing is more off putting then somebody into the sound of their own voice especially when they don’t know what they are talking about.
Who or what is the love of your life?
My Goddaughter Pearl shes amazing and incredibly smart. Such a madam you wouldn’t believe it, I love how she keeps me on my toes and makes me work hard for her attention. Im teaching her Spanish and love colouring in with her and waiting for what she is going to come out with next. Shes a right chatty betty like her mother.
What would improve your life?
A lot more Sunshine would help but otherwise im very thankful and content for my life. Its all good in my world.
What’s your greatest achievement?
In a work capacity one of the first things that springs to mind is coming in number one in the top 50 things to do at Glastonbury a few years back that Emily Eavis writes. It was for our Kubicle stage with LBHQ in Shangri La. I also found out on my birthday, its so lovely to have a birthday during such a special time of the year. We also beat the Rolling stones! I couldn’t believe it when I read it. Glastonbury is my favourite festival you cant beat it and we have been working with them for the last 8 years or so. Its great to get a bit of acknowledgment as its all done out of love and the team works so hard to put it all together.
What keeps you awake at night?
Panda our cat has an annoying tendency to wake me during the night. Im a sound sleeper so don’t really have a problem in that department.
How would you like to be remembered?
Fondly and as somebody who was put on earth to connect and create.
What lessons has life taught?
Live, Life, Love. Get out there and enjoy every minute of it with out hurting others or yourself. Experience all you can, be mindful of others. Respect your time on Earth and watch dreams become reality.
What would your super power be?
Teleportation and id be dressed in flash Gordon gowns at all times with the most incredible head – pieces.
Who would play you in a film?
Kelis once said that Angelica Housten in the 70s was my doppleganger….I don’t really see it but still not a bad thing at all.
Tell us a secret…
Ive started writing, i'm really into it and working on a few projects. Oh and Im also 20806 years old I did past life regression and was in the session for 3 and a half hours.
The next thing up for Liz is the ShowPony on NYD in Marrakesh.
