How would you describe your personal style?
Inventive – Creativity is one thing I love about fashion and being able to envisage how pieces and accessories can naturally come together to create a beautiful outcome.
Colourful – My wardrobe is packed with colour and wearing any less than three colours in one outfit makes me feel a little naked! Colour is a lovely way to express yourself or to bring a personal lift.
Experimental – I enjoy trying new styles and experimenting with fashion. It is always nice to come back to my favorite items, but it is fun mixing things up a bit.
Practical - As a mother, I always need to give thought to sensible styling, juggling school runs, work, shopping or sporting activities. These shouldn’t compromise looking good, but comfort is always key.
What do you love most about fashion?
There are no set rules for looking your best. We have so much choice these days for quality, affordable fashion, it’s easy to find clothing to suit every body shape. The secret is to wear it with confidence and with your head held high.
What is your most loved item of clothing in your wardrobe?
My corduroy jeans. As the saying goes ‘when on a good thing, stick to it’ hence why I own four colours! I love the comfort, texture and how they express individuality – not everyone is wearing them.
What are your best style tips for women?
Embrace your shape and size. Knowing how to accentuate your best features will naturally disguise the areas of your body you do not feel comfortable with - and we all have those.
If it doesn’t feel amazing the moment you put it on, chances are, it doesn’t belong in your wardrobe.
Don’t shop sales! They are an easy way to buy items you don’t really need, not saving in the long run.
What drives your passion for volunteering?
I am motivated every day by helping others.
I meet so many fascinating and inspiring women: career women, working mothers, stay at home mothers, retirees and women facing personal challenges. Regardless of your social background or stage of life, I wish for all women to leave the house with a spring in their step, ready to take on their day with pride and confidence.
What wardrobe item couldn’t you live without?
My flat shoe collection; stylish but practical.
What gets you up in the morning?
A hungry 4 year old, although I do love an early morning cuddle with the children.
Best way to spend a Sunday is…
Enjoying the outdoors with my family.
Growing up I spent a lot of time camping and I love to slow things down a little and enjoy those simple pleasures with my family.
Your personal motto to live life by is….
Positive energy comes from within.
Looking good and feeling great allows for confident interaction with others while bringing a wonderful sense of personal satisfaction at the end of the day.
Returning to work after a baby, for me, was hard. Specifically because I still had a large tummy from growing that adorable chubby baby - and no idea how to dress so I looked smart. I love, respect and accept 'post baby me', but how to look 'work ready' was a puzzle - I'm...
