Describe your style in 3 words.  

Classic with a twist in Winter.
More boho in Summer.

 

As a writer and talented stylist, what do you hope your impact will be on your readers/clients?

I hope that I can share some useful style tips that I’ve picked up along the way, give a little outfit inspiration for everyday busy Mums and hopefully give them a laugh along the way.

 

Where do you find inspiration in your day-to-day life?

Magazines, other influencers, friends and colleagues.

 

House of Spring believes women deserve to be seen and represented as they are - with comfortable and chic shoes. Our #EverydayMadame campaign seeks to celebrate strong women who exhibit confidence, tenacity and style in their everyday lives and professions.
Please share with us why feeling empowered, and empowering fellow women is essential?

Feeling empowered and empowering other women is essential because by supporting each other we can tackle existing modern day challenges together. Challenges for example in the work place, such as the pay gap between the sexes, and less women in Senior positions. If we can empower ourselves and other women then the world will become a better place for both sexes.

 

If you had to choose one of House of Springs’ shoes to rock your day with confidence, which pair would it be?

Your Cheetah trainers because what is more powerful than one of those beautiful animals. And plus they just happen to look terrific.

 

What advice or suggestions can you give to women walking the path of empowerment?

Believe in-yourself, stay strong and be optimistic about what you can achieve in work and your personal life. Also don’t forget to stop and enjoy life once in a while. We are all so busy going places that we forget to breathe. Laughing at ourselves occasionally too is also the best medicine.

 

What is the best piece of advice you've ever been given from another woman?

Go easy on yourself - we are our own worst critics. Be as nice to yourself as you are to your friends

 

Please finish this sentence: International Women’s Day is important because...

it gives us a whole day to celebrate how fabulous we all are!
