Lindsey Holland is just gorgeous, 6’ tall, blond, bombshell kind of gorgeous. Totally Down to earth, fun (and funn-y) a special human with a huge heart. Lindsey and I met via the wonderful world of Instagram (and a parcel containing some jewels). When we met IRL, it was fabulous, I’ll never forget it. I was luckily enough to design and collaborate on a jewellery collection with Lindsey, which we are both so proud of. We have ended up with three pieces of beautiful jewellery, a donation to Age UK and a friendship, thank you pal, it was an honour.
Linda! because when you type 'Linds' into a phone it autocorrects it to bloody Linda! and now it's stuck.
Denim? Denim blue.
WHO / WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
I take inspiration from so many things and people! I'd say traveling, whether that's in the UK or abroad is a huge source of inspiration for me and it really helps me to find my focus if I'm not in the best creative head space. People wise, my mum is pretty cool and has taught me how to be strong.
ONE THING YOU CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT?
BEAUTY MUST HAVE?
LIP. BALM. And also mascara - NARS 'Climax'. I wasn't blessed with long dark lashes.
MOST WORN PIECE OF JEWELLERY?
My RF design collection and the vintage pieces from mum and dad that I never take off.
FIRST DIAMOND MEMORY?
My first ever boyfriend bought me a diamond pave cross necklace in white gold and I remember being petrified of losing it! I was just 16!
WHAT WAS THE FIRST PIECE OF JEWELLERY YOU OWNED?
My yellow gold 'Lindsey' name necklace written in Arabic. My parents bought it for me when I was born. I wear it every day.
BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER BEEN GIVEN?
'There is no point in worrying over something that hasn't or might not happen yet, unless you want to go through the whole thing twice'.
I can say my mum right? She's so cool and polished and chic!
MOST USED EMOJI?
😂 - I laugh for most of the day, all day, which is a nice thought!
Ohhh a fair few! some random, and some that are meaningful too. My favourite one is on the inside of my arm, it's the exact tattoo that my grandad had on his forearm- a pal in the army did it for him in India and it's of a little pin-up girl.
BEST SHOW ON NETFLIX RIGHT NOW?
Sex Education for sure - it is hilarious!!
FAVOURITE SONG TO SING IN THE SHOWER? SIGNATURE DISH?
Anything 90's pop. Backstreet Boys, mainly.
WHAT TUNE WOULD YOU REQUEST FROM A DJ?
Backstreet Boys or Fetty Wap- my music taste is erm, diverse.
Filing at mum and dad's accountants.
This is so tough…but I think LA!
NAME OF FIRST PET?
Pepper, a grumpy, bite-y gerbil.
IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPER POWER WHAT WOULD IT BE?
To be able to reverse time (selfishly) and also to be able to be in 1 million places at once so I could visit all the lonely elderly people possible!
WHAT WOULD ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER YOUNGER SELF?
You're going to do amazing things, see so much more of the world than you can imagine and boys? don't let them make you cry.

Sally Rooney- Conversations with Friends
FIRST THING YOU DO WHEN YOU WAKE UP?
Turn my alarm off and snooze for 10 minutes.
