Weight training and kickboxing, at home on the terrace with my trainer.

On the days I don't get a chance to work out, I try to do 30 army-style push-ups and I instantly feel pumped up and strong.

Favourite accessory

My oversized pink-gold Cartier watch, my black pearl and silver beaded bracelet and a simple gold ring given to me by my godmother

I love to cook for my kids.

Beach for sure at the moment, mountains when I learn how to ski.
