Do you come from these parts? No but I’ve lived here most my life. I was born in Luton, but I count myself as a northern lass.
Describe what you are wearing today: It’s a bit chav chic/shabby chic. I like old Hollywood style but sometimes I love some big gold hoops and Adidas. I have an eclectic taste in clothes.
Do you own a pair of walking boots/very sensible shoes? I have some £10 wellies and they do me pretty well for rain and snow.
Do you own a pair of heels and do you get to wear them in this valley? Yes I have loads and yes I wear them in the valley. When I was growing up here I had a lot of boy mates and at the same time became interested in heels and makeup etc. I would end up running around and climbing in heels.
Who is your favourite clothes maker (past or present)? I would probably say Chanel, especially back in the 50s and 60s. I also like Adidas, although that’s more of a sports make.
What look are you going for? Sometimes I dress on what persona would like to be that day. And I love any excuse to dress up – like my firework on bonfire night. My favourite yet was being a mermaid for my birthday. I also like to think of everything to my hair right down to my toenails.
What’s the best thing about living in Hebden? Although this is the annoying thing about Hebden I also like the fact that everyone knows each other. It’s a safe place to be. I adore our beautiful scenic surroundings, the fresh air and the wildlife. I also have made a lot of wonderful friends some young, some old and I will cherish them for life. I also like the fact that people can be who they want to be without being judged.
Good Day/Bad Day: Marylin Monroe/ Myra Hindley
I don’t feel right saying Marilyn as she’s far too good for me. So I don’t really know who to say? My boyfriend said it and I’m flattered but I don’t agree.
