If I were a colour I would be: Red – in many cultures it’s the colour of luck and prosperity. The cheekiest thing I have ever done is… Ask a street vendor in Thailand if I could make my own Crepe on his van. I did and it was awesome!

My fave Cosatto product is: I can't decide, it's like picking a favourite child. If I were a colour I would be: ‘rellue' because that's a mixture of all the primary colours. Come to think of it mixing them all makes brown, so I suppose I'm brown?
