1. What do you love about being a Mama?

I love everything about being a Mother! I’ve never experienced such a selfless love... a love that is so strong and tender it brings me so much joy and happiness. I love watching how present my daughter is in every moment. I just love being with her. We have a very special bond.

2. What do you find the hardest thing about being a Mama?

The hardest thing about being a Mother is leaving her when I travel for work. I find it super difficult. She gets very distressed when I leave.... 

3. What are your go-to beauty products and favourite brands?

I use a moisturiser from Dermalogica, an eye cream from the Beauty Chef and a body moisturiser from Weleda. I am obsessed with most of Weleda’s products. They have an incredible calendula cream I still use on my daughter, Olive, if she ever gets a rash. It cures everything!

4. How do you manage to stay in shape?

I have always done yoga, however, a few months ago I really hurt my back. Recently, I have been working with a personal trainer who has been strengthening my body. God it’s making a difference!

5. How do you find time to rest and relax?

My job is either really hectic or really quiet. There is no in-between... So when I’m quiet, I take time to sit in my garden and appreciate all the amazing things in my life. I also love going for a massage -  as it helps my nervous system relax and restore.

6. Where are your favourite places to go in Sydney?

We live about an hour a half outside of Sydney in a beautiful place called the Southern Highlands. We love going for long bike rides, exploring the local markets and taking a drive to all the south coast beaches! 

When we are staying in Sydney, our favourite place is the Paramount Hotel in Surry Hills. It’s our home away from home! When it comes to food, we always need our Bills, and Fratelli Paradiso hit!!!

7. What are your favourite things to do together?

We love snowboarding together. Going to the beach is Olive’s favourite thing! 

8. Any travel tips with small children or a new baby? 

We waited until Olive turned four-years-old before doing any big trips. Four is a great age to travel with them. Always stay a night on the stopover. It makes a world of difference. 

9. Where is your favourite place to vacation with your family? 

My favourite place so far has been Majorca. I’m dreaming of when we can go back!

10. What is your signature style and favourite fashion brands?

I’m into very simple, clean lines when it comes to fashion. My wardrobe is made up of beautiful basic pieces including jeans, t-shirts and jumpers. For summer, I have a range of dresses - mainly blue, black, white, and green. I also love a good pair of trainers. 

For my job, I need to be comfortable. Since - I’m often lying on the ground somewhere! 

My favourite brands are bassike and Jac + Jack, Levi’s, Acne Studios, Ganni and Bottega.
