What is the best advice anyone has given you ? 

Know your worth. Fake it till you make it. 

What is your best tip for saving time ? 

My best tip for saving time is don't waste it. I see / hear from designers all the time that tell me they spend spending hours during the day trolling the internet on blogs and on Facebook or chatting with friends on messenger. If I did that myself I would wind up working till all hours of the night. If you come into work and focus deeply for 10 hours its amazing how much shit you can get done. I also can then really appreciate time after work.

What is your routine start and end of the day ? 

Every morning I wake up, check my phone for email / Instagram / twitter, then shower, and get a cappuccino. At night time if my husband is home we fall asleep to a documentary or TV show. If he's not home I wind up doing more email or I do writing. 

Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without? 

Wacom tablet
