Cate, when are you at your happiest?

When I’m with my husband on a beach somewhere with a good book and a cold beer.

When you were a child what did you want to be when you grew up?

A country music singer like Dolly Parton or Lois Lane.

When was the last time you cried?

On a flight to San Francisco last week watching Justin Beiber’s “Never Say Never” – I’m not proud of it!

What is your worst habit?

Checking my Blackberry in the middle of the night or when I should be relaxing!

What can’t you leave home without?

My blackberry and my red lipstick.

What is the highlight of your career so far?

Launching BitchBuzz.com at 3.30am one early August morning back in 2008.  It truly felt like I had been in labour for the last month and finally had something to show for it!

Do you have any top tips to get a job like yours?

Be honest with yourself about your strengths and your weaknesses, surround yourself with people you trust, and stay true to who you are – don’t conform or worry too much about what other people are doing!

Do you have a secret celebrity crush?

Karen Gillan who plays Amy Pond in Doctor Who *sigh*

What’s your most humiliating experience?

I fell down walking into a party for my favourite designer at London Fashion Week.  I was wearing high wedges, there was a ramp I didn’t see….it was pretty unrecoverable.

Which item in your wardrobe would shock the fashion police?

I have a pair of flats that are made by Crocs.  I don’t care what brand they are, they’re so comfortable and they go with everything! Take that Croc haters!!!

What’s the first single you ever bought?

Hanson’s “I Will Come To You” on CD.  (They were my first concert too! I may or may not have had a serious Hanson obsesion.  Ahem!)

So if you want some fab advice from Cate or any of the V-Team, get liking us on facebook and send your dilemma today!!!! x
