Kiki’s Country Life

When I’m in the country you’ll find me… Staying with friends

I start my day by… Waking up and reading my book in peace for half an hour, before going down to breakfast

For lunch I’ll… Pick up something local. I love eating from farmers’ markets, and if I am staying with friends I’ll always bring some treats from the market as a present, most likely some cheese!

My favourite country activity is… Walking in the sunshine through green fields

For dinner I’ll… Eat what I’m given!

My ideal country date / weekend / holiday would be… Somewhere with sun, sea and sand, and some peace and quiet

Kiki’s Town Life

When I’m in the city you’ll find me… In my office on Sloane Square

I start my day at… I wake up at 7:30am and try to get to work for 9:30am

Lunch/dinner… I love going out for lunch at Lucio’s on the Fulham Road, Manicomio in Duke of York Square or Mess at the Saatchi Gallery

While in the city I always… Make use of everything it has to offer, I love the ballet so I’ll always look to see if there are any performances on

My favourite city is… London

I never travel without… My phone charger!

Ultimately, I’m a TOWN person… I was born and brought up in London so I’m definitely a town person, although I do love to escape to the country at weekends when I can.
