DIPTYQUE 68 Marylebone High Street, W1U 5JH

This is my favourite candle and perfume shop. The fragrances are beautiful and remind me of the scents of my childhood and hometown. Lily of the valley (muguet) is my favourite. diptyqueparis.co.uk

BA&SH 9 Marylebone High Street, W1U 4NW

I love this brand. Its beautiful long, flowing dresses are particularly gorgeous, especially with summer just around the corner. ba-sh.com/uk

TRISHNA 15-17 Blandford Street, W1U 3DG

I’ve always travelled to India — I go twice a year and love the country. Trishna is where I go to find amazing Indian food in London. The keema naan is a must. trishnalondon.com

THE WALLACE COLLECTION Hertford House, Manchester Square, W1U 3BN

I studied a Masters in Art History and have always gone to The Wallace Collection. It’s one of the most amazing collections in the world and I find it a very peaceful place to go and look around. wallacecollection.org

THE GINGER PIG 8-10 Moxon Street, W1U 4EW

I don’t eat red meat that often, so when I do it’s got to be of the best quality. The Ginger Pig sirloin is one of the best steaks I have ever had. thegingerpig.co.uk

EUROCAVE 57 Chiltern Sreet, W1U 6ND

It’s important to keep fine wines in the best condition and Eurocave’s wine storage cabinets, fridges and coolers are the best for this. It also stocks top glassware brands and is a great place for any wine lover. eurocave.co.uk

BLINK BROW BAR 20 Oldbury Place, W1U 5PJ

Going here made me discover the art of eyebrow threading, which is such an amazing technique. It’s also got some great products, in particular the luscious lash oil that I use. blinkbrowbar.com
