1. What does love feel like?
Love. I can’t get enough. It makes doing stupid things and making a fool of yourself totally seem rational and easy to do. It feels as much like a giant bed of soft feathers as it feels like being struck by bolts of electricity. Love is confusing. It’s selfish and selfless at the same time. It can hurt as much as it can heal. Love is a drug. It feels awesome.
2. What is your favourite meal?
I’m a huge foodie so there isn’t possibly one favorite. But off the top of my head right now I’m thinking about breadfruit cou-cou and oxtail stew, and fried flying fish and cornmeal cou-cou. Both meals I need sweet plantain sliced thin and fried crispy and almost burnt. I also love Grilled Marlin steaks with lemon tartar sauce and grilled potatoes and veggies. I’ll eat anything to be honest. I really love Italian, Brazilian, Middle Eastern, Spanish and Asian cuisine as well.
3. How do you relax?
Usually I do laps in the pool. Then stretch. Sit in the jacuzzi for a bit, then hit the sauna or steam room. If I’m in Barbados, I just go to the beach. Just the sound of the waves alone completely soothes me. When I’m stuck in New York, I run away to the Hamptons to escape the city. The beaches there aren’t quite like in the islands but, away from home, it’s the closest I can get to “island life” without going to Miami. Catching up on movies or my favorite comedy shows on demand is also how I unwind and shut my brain off for a bit. Obviously a full body massage and spa treatments are best but I’m too busy to do that very often.
4. I wish i knew…..
That for sure, every sacrifice I make in life is necessary and the right one and that I subsequently will end up exactly where I’m planning to go.
5. Which living person do you most admire?
6. What is your fancy dress costume of choice?
Not sure if I understand this question correctly but I love my long legs and I show or accentuate them as much as I can with whatever outfits I choose for any event. Shorts, mini skirts and little dresses. I used to show my stomach a lot too but these days I save that for the beach or pool.
