What are your plans for Christmas Day?

Christmas is all about family for me, this year it’s at my parents house. The day is so chilled and relaxing, no doubt I’ll have a wee sleep in, enjoy a huge breakfast, open presents and then it’s lunch time. I’m always surprised I can move after mum's Christmas lunch, her cooking is supreme!

What's on your Christmas wishlist this year?

Ohhh this is hard! I’m eyeing up the Bird Shirt. I love how oversized it is yet the fabric is so light. I feel like it’s a cute alternative to wear over your bikini at the beach when racing to catch the Mr. Whippy truck!

Most memorable Christmas Day....

This would have to be without a doubt Christmas day last year! All of my family were there, including friends from Australia, it was super busy, so many voices, opinions and hands in the kitchen but it felt like home and was just so much fun.

Favourite Christmas day food?

I have to pick one? TURKEY…..oh my…..and my mum's Christmas pudding with brandy sauce.

What’s the most awkward present you've ever received?

This would most likely be when my parents gave me the Aqua CD and a discman one year. I was obsessed with the “I’m a Barbie girl” song and it's the memory that is more awkward than the actual present because I proceeded to blast the CD in my ears and sing along - I can’t sing to save myself.

What will you be wearing on Christmas day this year?

I feel every year you need a Christmas outfit. Last year I wore my Liam Shoestring Dress in Peony and this year I’ll be wearing the stunning Solarise Dress….this is an all-time favourite of mine!

What are your plans for Christmas Day?

This Christmas marks the first in 6 years that my entire family will be in the same country, so I'll be back in Wellington up the coast at my grandparents with many aunties, uncles, pets and my fourteen younger cousins. Madness!

What's on your Christmas wishlist this year?

One piece on my wishlist this year is the lush RUBY Cabana Gown in White. Very Jessa from Girls. Scratch that- can I just be her for the day?

Most memorable Christmas Day....

It would have to be last year at my nana and pompa's. We ate and drank until we couldn't any longer and then swam at the beach across the road, grandparents and all. It was a beautiful day.

Favourite Christmas day food?

Fresh berries, croissants, chocolate and champagne!

What’s the most awkward present you've ever received?

My mum was once given a toilet brush... I won't name names.

What will you be wearing on Christmas day this year?

I'll be wearing my Liam Kimono in Cream over my bikini - my family always ends up at the beach!

A RUBY Christmas: Ophelia

What are your plans for Christmas Day?

I'm going on a little Europe holiday over summer this year, so we will be spending Christmas day in Paris with our family friends...eating cheese and drinking wine! I'm pretty excited to see what a real 'white' Christmas is all about!

What's on your Christmas wishlist this year?

I really want the Liam Joshua Shirt & Short in stripe because I really believe you can never go wrong with a linen twin set and I know I will thrash both of those pieces, both together and separately!

Most memorable Christmas Day....

Cochin, India, 2011 with my mum, my boyfriend and six of my friends. We spent the day cycling around the city, buying each other secret Santa gifts, (which ended up with all of us receiving miniature chess sets) followed by an amazing and very strange 'Christmas' dinner on a rooftop over looking the city.

Favourite Christmas day food?

HANDS DOWN HAM. I like that you eat it for weeks after - it makes it feel like the celebration never ends.

What’s the most awkward present you've ever received?

It's more of a strange, but great, gift. My sister-in-law got the whole family versions of sea-themed jelly tin moulds. I got a pink lobster.

What will you be wearing on Christmas day this year?

Despite being in freezing Paris for Christmas this year, I am determined to not to wear a puffer jacket on Christmas day and will be finding a way to sport the RUBY Resort Splash Dress.
