What is your favorite gift to give?
-Music compilations. I really enjoy searching for songs and sorting them into a great playlist. I like to theme them for the person I'm giving it to. If I'm making it extra special I'll package it nicely. Music compilations are thoughtful, personal and a great way to share music. If you are in need of some musical inspiration check out Miss Moss's music mixes. They are awesome.
What is your favorite Christmas memory?
-Probably when I went to visit my family in Canada when I was 9 years old. I had a traditional North American Christmas, which I'd never experienced before. I got to make a snowman, go tobogganing, eat roasted chestnuts and drink eggnog. It was magical.
What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
-My family has a lot of Christmas traditions but I think my favourite tradition is wrapping gifts. I like to put a lot of effort into making each present appealing and special. I also enjoying contributing a dish to the Christmas meal. I thinking of making these tomato and goat cheese tarts for Christmas this year.
What are you hoping to get for Christmas this year?
-This is a hard question to answer. I think it would probably be to have my best friend Will living in the same city as me. He moved down to Cape Town this year and I miss him a lot. If you live in Cape Town go and taste his delicious sandwiches and coffee at Field Office.
What is your favorite Christmas carol?
-I love Christmas but I hate Christmas carols. Its probably because I associate them with busy shopping malls and aching feet.
What is your favorite gift you've ever received?
-An antique ship brooch from my fellow. I love nautical things and it remains one of my most precious treasures. I received it while we were on holiday in the Eastern Cape. Whenever I wear it I am reminded of those windswept seascapes and the lovely person who gave it to me.
