About Me

30 ⋆ British ⋆ Fashion designer ⋆ Owner of Womenswear label Euphoric Threads ✌🏼🌴

📍Current location ➽ Sydney. Heading to NEW ZEALAND March the 1st! First stop QUEENSTOWN.

Anyone need a road trip buddy up to the North Island give me a shout!!

I've been travelling on and off for more than ten years, in around 38 countries. I have just finished my second year working holiday visa in Australia and looking for new people to meet and explore with in NEW ZEALAND!

( .. Next stop after 2 short weeks in NZ ... is SRI LANKA!! )

Music, Movies, and Books

Love local live music gigs, festivals, ... doofs! You name it.

I love such a varied type of music - anything upbeat and happy! Love rock, Indie, all types of dance and edm, reggae, 90s pop, and 80s disco baby!

Watch movies that make me smile laugh or cry, some classics I love are mostly by Tarantino or Danny Boyle!!
... THE BEACH is one of my all time favourites.

Love to read when I have the time, quirky novels or travel stories are a hit ... recently finished Elinor Oliphant is just fine. A little Life was a good read too, picked it up in Colombia, took me ages!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm trained in fashion and design, would happily make you some colourful threads if I have the resources, or if you need a button sewn I'm your girl haha. Will happily share any tricks of the trade if thats your thing haaa.

I love to learn new hobbies and sports .... always trying my hand at watersports ... most recently kite surfing.

Languages fascinate me and would love to get better at Italian and Spanish!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Top banter and stupid stories. I'd happily attempt to cook for you, and if you have pets even better I am a professional pet petter FYI and would happily walk your dogs!
