I love being happy and I love bright colours. Happy bright colours are what made me fall in love with Whitney’s @thewifelife Instagram feed. I adore Whitney’s positive outlook on life and her amazing eclectic styling. Her photography and writing is creative and inspirational. Whitney’s two girls Luella and Emmy have the most divine bedrooms and are some of my favourite babes to stalk on IG.
Let’s start things easy, and simple …
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
A slice of toast with smashed avo and a smear of mighty mite!
Most enjoyed Winter and Summer beverages?
A glass of icey Water and Hot Chocolate.
What three things do you take to your desert island (unfortunately George Clooney isn’t available)?
Is Tom Hardy available? Ha Ha. Good question. Hearing aid batteries so I can hear and save myself from the wild hogs lol. Netflix and chocolate.
Describe your style …
I have always been a fan of the baby pink. Grey and whites in clothes and in interior related stuff, so whatever style that is. Simple and clean?
Holiday destination of choice?
Ok, let’s step it up a little …
How do you chill out?
When the girls are at day care, I end up not knowing what to do with myself and before I know it, I’m chilled out. Lol.
Something you can’t live without?
My two beautiful girls and my close friends and family.
You have a dinner party and can invite three people dead or alive, who’s attending? …and what signature dish do you cook for them? More importantly, does it involve dessert?
Maybe my nanna so I can hear her beautiful stories once again. My mother, so she can see her mother again.
What is your favourite thing about Motherhood?
The rewards and the never ending love that comes with it.
When you jump on Instagram, which accounts do you look at no matter what?
@clairecollected she’s been such an amazing friend and her work puts a smile on my dial. Every single time! I usually just go through my feed first and then I realise I’m running late for something lol.
Are you afraid of anything? (we promise we won’t use this against you. Maybe)
I’m afraid of getting old and fragile. And rubber bands. Go on. Laugh.
Favourite childhood memory?
I love how much thinking this question brings. It would probably be at Nanna’s house. Where all my aunties and cousins would come on a Saturday for morning tea. We would dress up, make ridiculous songs on nanna’s recorder, eat her famous chocolate cake washed down with chilly fruit cup cordial in those old tinny cups! Ah! They were the best.
What are your non-negotiable health and beauty routines?
Coconut oil, on my hair and on my face daily.
Oh, these are too easy? Ok … let’s get personal.
Inspiration; what makes you go chick chick boom?
Going out with my girlfriends / close cousins and exploring new places. Inspiration is everywhere you go!
What makes you wet-your-pants happy?
Travelling overseas. I can’t wait to show the girls what a pretty world we live in.
Do you live by a life motto? If so, do share …
The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.
Tell us something about yourself that we’d be surprised to hear …
I am profoundly deaf since birth and I can communicate in sign language. I am fortunate to be able to speak. I’m a qualified nail technician by trade. But being a mama and doing this blogging gig is waaaaay better!!!
and finally …
What’s next for you?
The girls and I are going to really embrace life after some things that happened in the family and live loudly. You only get to live it once.
