60 Seconds With: Elizabeth Uviebinené

Elizabeth Uviebinené is an award-winning Marketing Manager and co-author of the critically acclaimed bestseller, Slay In Your Lane. We asked her 10 quick-fire questions on love, life and how she takes a moment to unwind...

Perfect day… I love an early start to the day. I’ll make myself a coffee, do some reading, a bit of writing, brainstorming while listening to the radio. I’ll then go for a swim, catch up with friends, have dinner and finish of the day in bed with a movie.

The book everyone should read…This is a tough one, but Open Up: The Power Of Talking About Money by Alex Holder. It’s the book I’m currently reading, and since money replaced sex as the thing we never talk about, it’s a refreshing approach encouraging everyday conversations around a topic that is generally considered to be off limits. 

Guiltiest pleasure… Staying in my pajamas all day and binge watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and The Real Housewives of Atlanta. 

Love of my life… My latest purchase, a hot pink Saint laurent ‘Loulou’ bag. It matches our hot pink book cover, so it was love at first sight. 

Favourite place in the world (and why)…Paris. Apart from it being home to my favourite store ever, Galeries Lafayette, I love the Architecture and the pastries are so good. 

Dream dinner party guests (and why)… I grew up being a massive Arsenal fan, so it’ll have to be the Arsenal ‘Invincibles' Squad of 2003-04. They went an entire season without losing a league game, I have so much to ask Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira. I’d also have Rihanna because you can tell she knows how to party. 

Wardrobe weakness… polka dot dresses. I own far too many.  

In my bag… my journal, phone, card holder, gum, a hair band, lip gloss, blotting paper and keys. 

Go-to uniform…a floral dress, white trainers and leather jacket. 

How you take a moment for yourself (to relax and unwind)… swimming an hour every week, it allows me to get back to work feeling recharged and inspired.
