Sophie was a full time cast member of Ladies of London in 2016.

What do I do best?

I am a really good organizer – I love to plan and prepare everything – it’s the only way I can multitask and stay on top of everything – as soon as one thing slips it tends to have a spiral effect so I run a really tight ship.  Obviously I have to be a little flexible as more often than not things change at the last minite!

What makes me the best version of myself?

I never give up – since I left college I have always worked really hard – the only time I took off was when I had my children and even then I was trying to start my own business.  From an early age I watched my father grow his own business, but he was always home for those important times with the family and we always came first – I’m exactly the same!

What are my aspirations?

I would love to be a successful self sufficient single mother to my children.  Being a great mother is first and foremost the most important job but my goal is also to grow my business and try and double it in turn over this coming year!

My Biggest Success?

My two boys of course – they are the best thing ever!

My Most Challenging Moment?

Telling my two boys that their father and I were separating – it was the most heartbreaking think I hope I will ever have to do.

My Motto?

Keep a clear head and never give up – the harder you work the bigger the rewards.  Things tend to go full circle so even when you are trying your best and nothing is happening – eventually it will come round and happen!

My Favorite People/Role Models?

I recently went to the Audrey Hepburn exhibition at Christies, she was such an incredible woman, hugely successful with an amazing career and yet still so humble and caring and a great lover of animals.  She is a true inspiration for living life gracefully and to the full.

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

I absolutely adore Paris, its such a beautiful city and I love walking around all day looking at museums and stopping at cafes … heaven!

The other place is Mustique – it is magical there… so many gorgeous beaches and the boys love it we always go with another family and the children all get to run around in complete freedom in the sunshine!

My Favorite Products/Objects?

I love my heated rollers!  They are amazing and come everywhere with me when I travel – I am developing my own set which is super exciting!  Salon finished hair in 5 mins at home!  Great for a busy mum!

My Current Passions?

(No rules here. This can be anything in your life that you are currently excited about or enjoy)

I love interiors and fashion – I try and stay up to date with all the trends and new designs!
I love being outside in nature with my boys and our dog – my favourite was to spend the day is walking, cycling and running with my boys and our dog!
