A minute with Eleanor Pendleton

by | 23 Sep 2019

We spent a minute with Eleanor Pendleton, digital entrepreneur, founder or Gritty Pretty, influencer and all round amazing woman.

So Eleanor, what’s your super power? 

I think my super power is that I can see through bull shit.”

What’s you motto to live by or the best piece of advice you ever received?

“It would definitely be my favourite quote which is by an American writer, whose name is Gore Vidal which is, ‘style is about knowing who you, what you want to say, and not giving a damn’.”

What’s your guilty pleasure?

“My guilty pleasure … if i’ve got a lot going on in my life, where I have committed to too many social commitments, I just stay home and watch Netflix with my husband. That is like a real guilty pleasure for me.”

Wine, champagne, cocktail?

“Wine, definitely a red wine, I would say a Shiraz or a cabinet sauvignon; Penfolds do my favourite Shiraz. Cocktail, my favourite cocktail is an amaretto sour, and champagne Moet & Chandon, the Brut Imperial.

If you could spend one hour talking to someone, living or dead, who would it be?

“Oh my gosh, I think I would say Oprah. I think of what’s she done, and she’s so empathetic; the legacy that she will leave, is pretty amazing. I think we could learn so much from her.”
