Five Minutes With… Rebecca McKinney

August 6, 2018

Five minutes with Rebecca McKinney

Over the almost five years we’ve shared lots of mini series’ here on The Promise, NTK: Need To Know, Behind the Lens, Blogging Brides, Local Loves and my personal favourite, Five Minutes With – all which are great if you are in the throws of wedding planning. 

Today we are going right back to our roots and getting back on the series bandwagon with a fabulous five minutes with gorgeous girlie, Rebecca McKinney. 

Fashion stylish, presenter, columnist, co-director of The Style Edit, longtime lover of fashion, and of course the voice behind the morning traffic reports and co-host of the Cool FM Breakfast show – it’s fair to say we are big fans of Rebecca and all her many talents, and the fact she is super loved-up right now is giving us all the warm and fuzzies! 

Thanks Rebecca for supporting The Promise xx
