HBA: What does “sexy” mean to you?

LA: To me, sexy means having confidence and being happy.

HBA: What do you think makes being a woman so amazing?

LA: Absolutely EVERYTHING!

HBA: What are your top five handbag essentials?

LA: My top five handbag essentials include my iPhone and charger, a great pair of designer sunglasses, the new Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Now fragrance and hand sanitiser.

HBA: With all of the travel that you do for work, what are your essentials for flying?

LA: My essentials for flying are my heaphones, my iPad and a really great book.

HBA: What do you and your fellow Angels do when you’re not working to unwind?

LA: Whenever we are not working we usually go to a nice dinner to unwind and spend time together. It is so rare to be in the same place at the same time so when we are, it’s great to just be together.

HBA: What is something you’d like people to know about VS Angels that they maybe don’t already?
