Welcome to our "Get to Know Us" series!
How did you get into your role?
I started working for G&H at Paddington markets whilst studying Fashion Design & Technology at Ultimo TAFE. After graduating I worked at our pop-up stores in Westfields and soon after moved to HQ where I did everything from photography to packing orders, updating the website and counting stock. I eventually got into the Buying role which was my fave place to be and they haven't been able to get rid of me since :)
What do you love most about your job? What is the highlight of your position?
The excitement of finding new gorgeous pieces our customers will love every week. I also enjoy working in a fast paced environment and of course our beautiful team who make every day fun.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
What has been your worst fashion faux pas?
Luckily no one had cameras on their phones when I was in high school, so I can just say I've had none ;)
What's a hidden talent? Or something most people wouldn't know about you?
I have 2 boys who are about to turn 2 and 4 years old.
How do you start your day?
My baby wakes me up sometime in the wee hours of the morning for cuddles. The best way to start the day!
Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Well I have no choice in this one. I used to be a night owl, never going to bed before 1 am but nowwwww I'm asleep by 9:30pm.
What are you excited about most in your life right now?
Its Birthday Month! Me and my kids are all born in July so it's an exciting month. :)
Where do you most want to visit in the world?
I would love to go to my husbands home country of Portugal to meet his family and see his home country through his eyes. I went there once when I was 18 and I remember eating seafood and drinking too much wine. Would love to skip a Winter here and do Summer there!
If you could take a week off from your regular life to immerse yourself in learning something new, what would it be?
I am constantly learning something new! There is always an audiobook playing in my car, I cannot get enough. I love to learn about health, parenting, habits, self-improvement, meditation & mindfulness. Shall I whip out my audible and we can listen together?
What's something you have learnt or achieved over this last year with Covid-19 and lockdowns?
I have learnt many lessons in the last year. I have gotten a better balance in my life and just a greater appreciation for everything that is in it. I feel very grateful and truly blessed.
If you could go back in time 10 years ago, what would you tell yourself?
Just jump! The universe will always catch you.
What TV shows are you watching right now?
Hahaha ummm I watch kids shows LBR.
What's a movie you can practically quote from start to finish?
Romy & Michelles High School Reunion.
What’s your favourite thing to do with your friends?
Have a big long chat and just laugh at our crappy parenting blunders and reminisce on funny old times.
If you were a cocktail, what would you be? And why?
A mocktail! My life is so much better since giving up alcohol.
What's the one staple item you can't live without?
Okay this is the most G&H answer... but it's got to be black wet look pants. I mean come on, I'm immediately dressed up!
How would you describe your personal style?
I have moved from boho onto a more tailored style now.
