How did you celebrate the New Year?

At a house party with friends in Dubai. I couldn't think of a better way to start the year than with friends, good music and unforgettable fireworks.

Looking back, what was your highlight of 2014?

From the fashion side, it was wonderful having Chanel host its cruise collection here and for Karl to be inspired from the Arab culture. Other highlights include being nominated as Face of the Year by ITP Publishing and launching Breast Cancer Awareness month with Ralph Lauren.

You're a Pisces and your 2015 horoscope says to be healthy and expect opportunities to come your way…

I love reading zodiac signs! And I am always up for some extra good luck to come my way!

What are your New Year's resolutions?

Enjoying the moment. I always feel like I'm in rush and often don't take in 'the moment'; being present is so important.

Out with the old - are you a hoarder or an organiser?

Now that I'm in my mid-30s, I tend to invest in pieces that will last me more than a season. I buy a few 'on trend' pieces but other than that, I try and invest in cashmere, good coats etc. I try and de-clutter my wardrobe every few months.

In with the new - what's currently at the top of your wish list?

I've got my eye on this gown by London based designer Safiyaa that would be perfect for wedding season.

The Baja Precious Stud Earrings in Blue Sapphire are amazing.

This Siren Cuff is fabulous and in my birthstone.

And I have a slight obsession with Valentino. How beautiful is this butterfly bag?!

January means sales - is there anything you're going to treat yourself to?

Sales can be very tempting. I miss London for the famous Harrods sale! This January I found some nice cocktail and evening dresses from Stella McCartney and Dolce & Gabbana. Can't beat a black dress with a twist! I also found the Riva Cluster Earrings at 50%, they are so beautiful! I definitely want this pair!

Will you be reinventing or making over any aspect of your life this year?

Lots of changes… stay tuned!
