My favourite song: I have so many favourites but if I have to choose one it would be “Just Breathe by Telepopmusik� I actually used this song for the soundtrack to my collection for Caribbean Fashion Week 2013. When I was a child: I wanted: nothing more than to be someone my mom would be proud of. My proudest moment: thus far, is watching the people my children are growing up to be. My perfect day: is by the beach on a day with perfect weather with my kids and my husband Kevin and a cooler packed with fruit, snacks and champagne.

My perfect day: sitting on the porch in Essex, MA, surrounded by family and friends, making food and watching the life of the salt marsh. I am inspired by: natural wonder.

My favourite song: LoveStoned by Justin Timberlake. In my wildest dreams: I’d be a fairy.. My proudest moment: the day I received the card with a picture of a 9lb 7oz baby boy and learned I was officially ‘Auntie Lia’! My fondest memory: holding onto my Father’s back as he swam out to the deeper parts of the ocean. Loved those family beach days. My perfect day: any day where I get to wake up next to the person I love I am inspired by: the people who come into my life for different reasons and periods of time.. but have left an imprint on my heart. I love: to give.. I do believe part of the reason I’m on this earth is to make someone’s day just a little brighter if I can in any way. This is the reason I love Christmas.. to give without ever wanting anything in return.
