“It depends on who I am going out with. If it’s like my family and friends then a nice islandstyle breakfast would be amazing. But if it’s my girlfriends then a lunch would be better so we can have a few mimosas or drinks.”
Q: Wine, rum, cocktail or Kalik?
“I like wine and champagne; they’re classy and just enough to give you a buzz and a little vibration. I don’t like rum or beer that much.”
Q: Beach or Sofa?
“The beach is so freeing, you can go there to clear your head in the fresh air; it’s very refreshing.”
Q: What is the one thing that you can’t live without? “My music. No matter what your favourite type of music is, it can set the mood for whatever you are trying to accomplish.”
Q: Weekend away, where would you go?
“It would have to be somewhere close by, so I would say a Family Island like Abaco or Eleuthera. I just love that island-style living – going to the beach, fishing – it’s everything in one great package.”
