#Quote
1I've teamed up with BaubleBar to curate a collection of gorgeous jewelry pieces. I worked closely with the BaubleBar team to design a collection that encompasses my style and all of my go to pieces.
2I originally wanted to be a pop star. I wanted to be Kylie Minogue. My dad thought that was a very silly ambition and introduced me to drama classes. Once I became fixated on that, there was no stopping me.
3I started my blog as an online diary. I moved to New York for a job, and I kind of wanted to keep my pictures all in one place. Also, I just love style blogs and wanted to join in on the fun!
4I've been known to spend an afternoon on ASOS.com. There's just so much on there, and I can't stand not seeing all the new arrivals just in case I miss out.
5I throw a leather biker jacket over everything. It adds an instant downtown cool vibe and stops a look becoming too girlie. Bonus points if you wear it like a cape!
6It's not exactly under the radar, but when I'm in London, I love to visit Liberty. It's my favorite department store, and they have a room entirely dedicated to chocolate and truffles.
7My first job was a film called 'Storm Damage' for the BBC. I was 16 and working with really respected British actors. I didn't have an agent at the time, and it kind of threw me into real acting.
8Mascara is my daily essential. I pile it on top and bottom lashes during the day. If I'm going out, I'll add the individual Eylure lashes at the outer corners for more drama.
9On shooting days, I have all my accessories, and I style the final look.
10My ginger tabby cat Oscar - he's got his own passport - he comes everywhere with me.
11Statement earrings and statement necklaces each deserve their own moment. I never wear the two together; it looks overdone.
12On the 'Revenge' set, even if they're not showing my feet, I'll still wear my heels because it gets me in the feeling of Ashley Davenport.
13Nobody is all good or all bad.
14I hate it when people are impolite to waiters or to the valet or the guy in the supermarket. There's no need for that; it doesn't cost anything to be polite.
15When the weather is really hot, I tend to live in denim cut-offs.
16I grew up in London. My parents and I lived in West Norwood, then we moved to Norbury, and I went to the Brit School. I'm a South London girl at heart.
17I can remember hearing the theme tune to Dallas when I was supposed to be in bed. I would sneak down and try to watch it through the banisters. My mum loved that show.
18You should see some of the things people tweet me. There have been death wishes on my Twitter timeline.
19I'm happy with embellishment in a chunky Prada-esque way, but I'm not into sequins!
20I was definitely nervous turning up on my first day to shoot with Woody Allen.
21I still credit Adrian Lester with being one of my biggest influences.
22I wish I wasn't eating Cheetos every night. Those are my favorite - I'm addicted to them!
23I'm terrible at posting regularly; I don't deserve the blog success!
24When someone comes to visit me, they have to bring tea - you can't stay in my house if you don't bring me tea.
25The water in L.A. tastes like bleach. I literally have to make my tea with Evian water.
26The second I tell myself I have to do something, I'm sure to do the opposite.
27Topshop makes the best skinny jeans for my shape. I order online or stock up when I'm back in London.
28There's no rhyme or reason to how I dress.
29I'm usually pretty good about meeting people. I try to remember they are human, too!
30If I'm outside, I want something flat on my feet.
31It often looks like an actor's had a big break out of nowhere, but in reality, they've been working their way up, little by little, for a while.
32I've read 'Valley of the Dolls' at least four times. It's so epic!
33If I love something, I wear it to death!
34Fashion is ultimately a form of self-expression. That's why I love trying out new things.
35Don't be afraid to pile on the midi rings! I like to play around with metals and pair delicate rings with chunkier ones.
36Creating a character is about what they look like. The look speaks volume to the audience.
37A light cotton cami is always great to stay cool.
38Daphne Guinness, who makes couture seem wearable, is an icon who influences what I wear.
39I like Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, as it's great for soothing dry skin and adding shine. I use it instead of balm, too.
40I like pieces that have everyday appeal and can be worn anywhere!
41I always carry multipurpose products in my handbag.
42I like to play around with mixing high-end with more affordable pieces.
43I like shopping from the comfort of my bed whilst my husband is asleep beside me.
44I'm known for changing halfway through the day if my mood swings.
45Comfort is key for a barbecue.
46I am a Topshop homing pigeon! I can walk into the Oxford Circus branch and ferret out the best bits in minutes.
47I always have loved witches.
48Nude nail polish wins hands down over intricate nail art.
49I don't see myself as famous at all so I'm continuing my life as normal.
50I love tea.
51A colorful Chanel bag is a way to mix up anything.
52When I first started working on 'Secret Diary,' I definitely felt like I needed to shape up. The idea of being in my knickers on TV was a great incentive! Now I try to eat right, and I go to Bikram yoga three or four times a week. I have my 'naughty' days, and I indulge in pizza and cake, but so what!
53I think the best way to keep a relationship hot is to simply try to make time for each other. That's it.
