A Bit About Me
I am an interior architect, a business owner, a devoted wife and proud mother of three beautiful daughters and one adorable cocker spaniel.
Photography, travel, the ocean and new experiences are just a few of my favourite things in life – and I can’t forget margaritas! I am happiest with my family or dancing and laughing with friends. To me, the glass is always half full (but top it up anyway:).
I’ve been a piano teacher and travelled through over 55 countries with my soul mate. Together we have waded through the Bolivian Amazon, slept under the stars in the wilderness of Namibia and danced upon bars in Santorini.
Most of all, I am a very ordinary woman who has good and bad moments and isn’t immune to life’s challenges. Sometimes I am insecure but mostly I’m striving for the courage and confidence of a tiger. Ultimately, I believe that it is the woman with self-confidence, an easy smile and interest in others that will be the most beautiful in the room, every time.
We are all a work in progress and I am on a journey to create the best version of myself. In doing so, I want to leave this earth a little better off than I found it.
Welcome to this little corner of the internet I’ve claimed for myself, to create and hopefully, inspire. This is where I share my journey to simplify life and the lessons I learn along the way. So, do you want to join me on this ride?
Why Create A Blog?
After the birth of my three children and 10 magical, liberating, crazy years of motherhood, I arrived in my forties feeling like I’d lost a little of my identity. My clothes didn’t fit or flatter. I hadn’t adventured anywhere exotic or spent any time alone with my soul mate for a decade. My fitness was dubious at best and probably dismal in reality and I needed a creative outlet.
I have an incredible life – loving family and friends, a beautiful home and my career in design, but I was in search of a new challenge. After stumbling through my thirties in ‘survival mode’, I needed a plan to get the most out of life. This blog has been a new learning experience, a creative dream. It has pushed me out of my comfort zone and hopefully it will open new opportunities.
Above all, I hope that others can relate to my story. The tale of someone mature but with a youthful spirit. Someone who shops at Westfield (not Gucci or Chanel) but embraces her own unique style. And like many women, someone juggling family, a career and trying to live life to the fullest.
Our stories all matter and are the most interesting thing about us. In sharing a little about me, I hope it allows me to connect with others. After all, it’s the people you meet on life’s journey that matter most.
This blog is the journey of rediscovering my inner magic – my confidence, my unique style, my strength, my purpose – creating the best version of me and living a life I love.
This blog is dedicated to my three beautiful daughters who are fast becoming strong, loyal, kind and confident young women. You inspire me every day!
