Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - YOU COVER STORY -

READ­ING Caitlin Mo­ran’s Mo­ran­i­festo. Ev­ery girl should read this. She’s a stri­dent fem­i­nist but it makes you chuckle. Women need to sup­port each other. DE­SCRIBE YOUR­SELF IN THREE WORDS… A hard-work­ing mum. FAVOURITE MU­SIC Mozart’s ‘Re­quiem’. It was his swan­song. If ever a piece was go­ing to be per­fectly writ­ten it’s that one. RE­CENT SNAPS The girls on a play date. And a leak in the bath­room I need to get fixed. SPEND OR SAVE? I’m a spender. I have two mas­sive out­go­ings: my home and school fees. MOTTO Crack on. Most peo­ple plan and pro­cras­ti­nate. What­ever it is, just get on with it. NIGHT OWL OR EARLY BIRD? A night owl all the way. I like to have a cock­tail, chew the fat. I could sit up all night. THE SCARIEST THING YOU’VE EVER DONE Mak­ing choices for two lit­tle peo­ple when I still feel like a kid my­self. DREAM DIN­NER-PARTY GUESTS My clos­est friends. We get to­gether ev­ery Fri­day. I’ve known them for more than 20 years – I went to school with one – so they’ve seen me through the good times and bad. CAN’T LEAVE HOME WITH­OUT… My hand­bag. It’s al­ways packed and ready to go. Life goes wrong when I change bags and I for­get my credit cards or car keys. STYLE ICON I like my women like my cof­fee, strong: Amal Clooney, Michelle Obama and Bey­oncé. IN YOUR MAKE-UP BAG Bronzer, high­lighter, mas­cara. WATCH­ING Hid­den Fig­ures, a film about the black women math­e­ma­ti­cians who worked for Nasa. I let my girls watch it.

SUIT, vin­tage Valentino at William Vin­tage. SHOES, Giuseppe Zan­otti. BAG (on counter), Aspinal of Lon­don
