?I did some art classes while I was here, and really got into it. I had a friend come over to visit and we turned the suite into an art den. We bought sacks of clay and made pots, covered the room in paper – they must have loved having me stay there!?
She has a major girl crush on Lily Collins.
?Working with Lily made me want to be an actress. Watching her work, I felt like I was watching a new Audrey Hepburn being born.?
She loves to cook.
?Here’s the recipe to my favourite breakfast: Cut up a heap of bananas, chuck in the oven for 20 minutes, and put some honey on top. Honestly, try it. It’s amazing.?
Her last holiday was in LA.
?I really like it there. It’s not cuckoo like everyone says. I hang out with a bunch of English people and go hiking. The nature there is incredible. You can be in the mountains in the morning and then come home and swim in the pool. It’s very chill.?
She’s a secret nerd.
?I’m obsessed with howstuffworks.com. They have a podcast series that teaches you everything from how a Ouija board works to the difference between men and women’s brains.?
She loves music (and plans to make her own someday).
?Right now I’m listening to Deap Vally and I love [Irish band] The Strypes. My own music is something I really enjoy making. It’s one of those things that when it happens and feels right, I’ll put something out.?
She is a sucker for a Chelsea boot.
?Kurt Geiger is all I wear. I went to Church’s in Kildare Village when I was in Ireland for brogues and Chelsea boots. They’re just so comfy.?
The secret to her beauty is down to simplicity.
?For make-up, less is definitely more – I realise that now. Fresh Glow by Burberry gives you a healthy radiance, or go for a bronzer by Bobbi Brown. Curl your eyelashes, brush your eyebrows – then you’re set.?
If you’re in London, you’ll find her at ?
?The Groucho Club in Soho. It’s one of those places you always end up in. Covent Garden is good – I love Monmouth caf?, and Bella Italia for coffee in Piccadilly Circus. Of course, Liberty is a Mecca.?
Kildare Village is open seven days a week; kildarevillage.com @KildareVillage
