In light of our collaboration collection with Ashton Wood, we sat down with her to ask her all things, from the collection and her work, her besties and her home life.
What’s your go-to style to wear at home right now?
I love loose flowy clothes or comfortable fabrics to wear around at home that are still fashionable so I don’t feel too daggy when I am doing things around the house/ working from home. I also love basics that I can wear over and over and not get sick of!
What piece in the collection do you love the most?
This is hard... I love them all but if I had to choose probably the brown maxi dress because we put a lot of time into getting it right with all the details and fit! Plus I get so many compliments every time I wear it!
What piece in the collection will you wear the most?
Ahh probably the Ashton Knit Set because it is so versatile and you can mix and match it!
Pre-covid, your work life heavily revolved around travel. What have you learnt about yourself given the current circumstances, not being able to do a lot of the things you used to do so regularly?
I’ve learnt to love being at home with Wolfie. I have definitely become a homebody since covid and enjoy spending time alone! I also have made family time a priority because when we can travel again I will be gone a lot! Ahaha :D
Besides travel bans, has covid affected your industry and workload?
At first, yes! Majority of my brand deals got cut and I was quiet for a bit. However, it fortunately picked up a month or two after the initial hit. I feel very lucky to have been able to keep working through the pandemic.
What do you love doing when you aren’t working?
I love watching romantic comedies, taking long walks with wolfie, dinner and wine with friends, reading & loveeeee sleep!! If I get less than 8 hours I am a different person ahah!
We know that self-care is an important aspect in your life. Share with us your number one self-care tip?
Becoming aware of your thoughts and feelings is the best tip I have because you can use the journal the process to make better decisions. You feel connected to yourself, understand yourself better and look after yourself better! Without awareness and journaling my self development journey would be a lot harder!
We also know that Issy, Em and Cartia are your besties, what’s your fav qualities about each of them?
I am so blessed to have amazing friends around me! I love how sweet and caring Issy is, she has a nuturing nature that makes you feel safe! I love how adventurous and positive Em is, she is always happy and so funny. Undercover comedian.. Haha! Cartia gives me a high when I am with her! She has taught me so much and is super loyal! Very blessed to have them all by my side ❤️
Let’s talk a bit of what would you tell your 18-year-old self?
I would tell 18 year old me to not take back any boy who cheated on you! I gave way too many chances to boys who did wrong by me! I would also say that you are enough, you don’t need to please everyone around you. Apart from that, 18 year old me lived life to the fullest!!
You’re not drinking coffee at the moment – so what’s your new go-to drink?
I gave up coffee as the caffeine started to give me anxiety! So now I am obsessed with Matcha! It is a slow releasing caffeine so you don’t get a spike! I love it!! Add some chia syrup and oat milk over ice, delish!
And we had to ask… what’s your go-to alcoholic beverage?
Either wine or tommy’s margarita!
Last.. but not least.. are there anymore fur babies on the cards?!
I wish..but one is enough work for now hehe. Wolfie has cousins and lots of friends who he plays with all the time!
