Quick-fire with Hay­ley…

NEXT (New Zealand) - - Cover Story -

I’d like my NEXT big hol­i­day to be… Trav­el­ling the length of Viet­nam on a mo­tor­bike! I have dreams of start­ing my trip with a splurge at the Hanoi Sof­i­tel, then I’ll jump on a bike and travel south. I'll take in all the lit­tle vil­lages on the way, through Ho Chi Minh, end­ing at the beaches of the south coast.

As soon as I wake up, the NEXT thing I do is… Put the ket­tle on for a hot ap­ple cider vine­gar. It’s my one and only rou­tine ac­tiv­ity.

Af­ter my phone and wal­let, the NEXT thing I al­ways have to have in my hand­bag is… I can’t go out without a tube of lip balm. Yes, I need to drink more wa­ter so I don’t need to con­stantly slather it on, but un­til I get with the hy­dra­tion pro­gramme, it’s al­ways in my hand­bag.

When I’m feel­ing stressed, my NEXT move is to… Ring my mum! No prob­lem is too small to make a call to the woman who knows me bet­ter than I know my­self.

NEXT on my read­ing list is… I’ve just been lent The Arg­onauts by Mag­gie Nel­son by a friend who in turn had it lent to her by an­other friend. I hope it ends up back in its right­ful book­shelf one day, but un­til then it will ex­pand the bound­aries of any­one lucky enough to read it.

I’m at a fan­tasy celebrity din­ner, and sit­ting NEXT to me is…

I’ve al­ways thought Joaquin Phoenix would be a good time.

By my NEXT birth­day I’d like to achieve…

I’m ridicu­lously su­per­sti­tious so I ab­so­lutely won’t jinx my­self by putting my hopes and dreams into print.

My NEXT pur­chase will be… I have an un­healthy ad­dic­tion to sneak­ers so while I would love to say my next pur­chase will be my own house, it is more likely to be a pair of Jor­dans, thus push­ing any home-own­ing dreams even fur­ther out of reach.

Af­ter ‘drink more wa­ter’, the NEXT best piece of ad­vice

I’ve ever been given is… Try not to worry about what oth­ers are think­ing or say­ing about you, be­cause a) wor­ry­ing about some­thing will not make it go away, and b) they’re more likely to be think­ing and talk­ing about them­selves!
