Give us a quick introduction to Daina Milner?
I’m the youngest amongst my friends, I don’t like people my age as I find them rather immature and lack a level of class. I’m seen as the Mom of the group, I’m very mature for my age. I like my men like I like my wine – well aged. I’m outgoing and enjoy socialising with people from all walks of life. I’m not a club/ party girl, my idea of a fun weekend is going away for the weekend with my closest friends, sitting around a bonfire on the beach with guitars playing, people singing, drinking and having a laugh.
