FIVE MINUTES WITH: Jodie Emes, who runs Cwmbran pub the Blinkin' Owl

If you had to be stuck in a lift with someone, who would it be and why?

Definately Beyonce. She is the strongest, most beautiful, successful and inspiring woman in my eyes. I'd love to have her full attention and talk business.

What is your biggest fear?

Spiders. They give me the creeps.

Do you have any superstitions?

I don't, no. I believe you have one life so live it to the max.

If you could listen to only one song for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

Chris Brown – Don't judge me...... I love this song because these days it's too easy for people to judge one another. This is a beautiful song, just listen to the words.

What is the most expensive thing you’ve bought, not including property?

My car – I have a BMW m sport series 1

What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

I was shown a quote by Marilyn Monroe. It's my favourite piece of advice.

“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”

What is your indulgence?

Popcorn. Sweet popcorn is the best with a movie. And Malteaser bunnies.

What item could you not live without?

There isn't an item I couldn't live without. I try to stay grounded.The only thing I couldn't live without, would be my family.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

If I could I would have a constant tan. I work so much I don't get to see the sun much, and a healthy glow always looks lovely.

Apart from that, I wouldn't change anything because I'm happy just the way I am.

Where are you next going on holiday?

I want to save up and go to Barbados with my partner. I've seen some beautiful pictures, it looks like paradise.
