1. Road Bike
I bought this bike six years ago, primarily for cycling to work. It was a serious upgrade from my previous second hand eBay bargain! A friend then got me involved in triathlons and I’ve become totally hooked on cycling, if not the Lycra. I would miss the regular daily exercise without it and a bike would be a great way to explore the island.bianchi-road-bike

And for complete luxury, a girl’s got to look after her skin. The Aesop products are so delicious, I would love to be using them daily.aesop-aftersun

I’d love to own a dog, especially a Weimaraner – and not just because they’re grey! On a desert island I’d be able to give him all the time and devotion he would need. I’m sure the company would be most welcome and he’d be a perfect companion.

4. Global Knife
These knives are a beautiful design, very simple and elegant. I enjoy cooking, well, eating really, and one item I wouldn’t be without in the kitchen is my global knife set.


5. Hammock
I bought this hammock while travelling in Peru eight years ago and since then it’s been buried away at the bottom of a cupboard. It would be great to have the weather and time to relax in it; there’s not been much call for a hammock here in East London!


6. Flor de Cana Rum
While reclining in the hammock I’d need refreshment; a bottle or two of Flor de Cana rum would do the trick, allowing me to re-live some happy memories of travelling around South America.
