City girl Jane Gottschalk somehow managed to find the time to found the fashion industry's favourite tipple, Jax Coco coconut water, while running around after four daughters and 15 dogs. The self proclaimed rebel-turned-entrepreneur talks Pretty Woman, stretchy jeans and desert island dressing...

When I look in the mirror I see... cheeks. Cheeks that are getting fuller and lines filling out thanks to pregnancy number five!

If I were stranded on a desert island with one dress it would be... I'd hope for a sharp rock rather than a dress to open up coconuts with, of course. The coco water should keep me going while I unpack the entire Melissa Odabash bikini range!

When I was at school I wanted to be... out of there as quickly as possible! And I was on most occasions due to my rebellious streak. I had three older sisters who were successful and glamorous and I couldn't wait to join them. The glamour part didn't really materialise as I ended up in the City, suited and cuff-linked much to my fashion PR sister's embarrassment!

My biggest style triumph was... getting dressed and out the door every morning. The past few years have been one long round of maternity jeans and accessories. Thank God for J Brand low waisted stretch jeans in EVERY shade of black.

If I could be any character from film or literature I'd be... a combination of Huckleberry Finn meets Vivian from Pretty Woman, with a bit of David Roberts from the novel Shantaram thrown in. Childish tom boy adventurer, keeping it real in a glamorous world with a healthy streak of rebellion and a lust for travel, food and drink!
