I don’t think I could live without podcasts, especially if I was stranded on a desert island. I love walking, so podcasts keep me company on long walks. My current favourites include Woman’s Hour, The Teacher’s Pet, RHLSTP with Richard Herring and I guess I could binge on the 3,000+ episodes of Desert Island Disks!
Having just bought a house in south London, my boyfriend and I are starting out with our very first garden. Hopefully I can transfer some of those skills to the island. We are yet to see any vegetables grow, but we are hoping to have fresh veggies to get us through Brexit!
Well, if you’re going to be stuck on a desert island you may as well enjoy the beach with a good gin and tonic. Archie Rose gin is from my hometown, Sydney, so it should go perfectly with the sunshine!
I had a beautiful Border Collier dog growing up and I’ve wanted to get a dog for years. Unfortunately, designers’ hours don’t always work that well for pets, so. seeing as I’ll have lots of time on the island. it’s the perfect time to have a puppy.
I’ve owned my bright yellow KitchenAid for over 10 years, and I wouldn’t want to give it up just because I’m on a desert island. I love to bake, and it’s always added a nice pop of colour to any kitchen.
Can I take a whole gallery? I hope so. I love the Tate Gallery; we try and visit every couple of months or so and have seen so many amazing exhibitions there. I can spend hours browsing the gift shop as well, and the rooftop bar is just an added bonus!
Who doesn’t want to float around the ocean on a giant unicorn? And I guess if I get lonely, I can start talking to it – like Wilson.
Nothing feels more summery that this song. It usually gets stuck in my head from about March onwards, as I wait for summer.
Nothing says tropical island to me more than this song. The perfect soundtrack for a deserted island.
One of my favourite songs of all time. I can listen to it over and over again.
This is one of my boyfriend’s favourite songs to play on the guitar and it always reminds me of him.
The Pulp Fiction soundtrack was always on high rotation when hanging out with friends and this song takes me back to dancing around the kitchen of my first ever flat.
Well, everything’s better with a bit of Amy.
