Written by The Sette November 10, 2020

…she hides cookies in her pockets and is on a mission to create the world’s most beautiful measuring cup. Sierra is hoping to go on holiday to Kyoto soon – but until then, this night owl will be hosting her three best friends at home for all-you-can-eat popcorn. As for the soundtrack? It’ll be Taylor Swift, through and through. 

Game, sette, match… what game really gets a dinner party started?

Hide cookies in your pocket

Heart sette on… what are you really longing for, no matter how big or small?

Designing the world’s most beautiful measuring cup.

Sette in my ways… what’s your worst habit?

I often type on my phone…in the shower.

Sunrise or sunsette… which is your favourite time of day?

Forever a night owl!

Ready, sette, go… what have you wanted to do for a while now?

Launch Great Jones’s first collection of bakeware.

Sette the record straight… what’s something people might not know about you?

I’m tougher than I look.

Sette teeth on edge… what really annoys you?


Sette an example… what do you think would make the world a better place?

Accepting a woman’s right to choose.

Sette the scene… what’s your idea of a dream home, or the perfect gathering?

My three best friends and Great Jones Duchess full of popcorn.

Jet-sette…. where’s your favourite holiday spot?


DJ sette… what are the top five songs on your playlist right now?

Anything by Taylor Swift (no shame).
