If you're wondering about her style, think tomboy chic. She's all about rocking a perfectly-tailored pair of trousers and a silk scarf over a frilly dress any day of the week. Shoe obsessed and with a particular penchant for men's watches, she's also never seen without her favorite hats and eyewear.
On a personal finance journey learning about savings and how to invest. Trying to lead a more eco-friendly sustainable lifestyle and educating herself on composting and using biodegradable products. Can make a mean “Donburi” (Japanese rice bowl) and is passionate about skincare and grey hair care products.
Learn to skateboard, play the guitar, climb the Kilimanjaro, and learn to headstand one day.
