Tell us a little bit about your family...

Dusty is nearly 7 months old and we live in The Northern Beaches, in Sydney.

 

You have styled some of our most beloved TV stars, everyone from Holly Willoughby to Laura Whitmore, Melissa Hemsley and more. How did you find styling your own bump and are there any pregnancy style hacks you can share? 

My one hack was over-sized mens shirts. They are a life saver, I lived in them!
 
 

You recently posted about 4th trimester dressing...what have been your go-to pieces while breastfeeding? 


Actually, the same over-sized shirts I wore during my pregnancy. 

 
 

Has becoming a mama changed the way in which you approach fashion & the way you dress?

It’s definitely made me feel more comfortable in my body and wear what I like instead of worrying about the bits I don’t like.
 
 

Tired mama tip you can share...

 

“Get a bumbag they are a LIFESAVER I just bought a waterproof one by RAINS that works for the beach and for walks when its wet outside, plus you can always be hands free which has never been more important, especially for mums that have a dog too !”

 

Beauty product you swear by… 

Augustinus Bader Rich Cream before you go to sleep.
 

We're super happy to be included in your baby edit. It can be overwhelming working out what you need to buy for a new baby. Where did you find inspiration & how did you know what you needed?


I wanted to create a page of items to show exactly what I have in my kit and nothing more, you don’t need a lot of things when you have a baby.  All they want is you and milk!
 
 

Has anything surprised you about becoming a mother?

How much I’ve fallen in love with it... I was told that I had a low chance of becoming pregnant and that I wasn’t even a case for IVF which I’ve written about on my blog.
 
  

"I can’t imagine life without Dusty now,  he’s taught me so much about myself that I didn’t know."

 
  

Favourite part of motherhood

I can’t pick one!!
 
 

And the hardest…

Worrying about him
 
 

Anything you'd known before becoming a mother?

How absolutely magical it is, it’s a real gift, children are a blessing
 
 

What do you do to unwind for some 'you time'? 

Walking by the ocean
 

How did you come across BINIBAMBA?

I saw a rocker by Charlie Crane that they had styled with a sheepskin and I wanted to find out where it was from!
 
 

Can you share your ultimate BINIBAMBA pick...

The liner is so good. We move it from Dusty’s cot to his pram & bouncer. We also use it as a head rest on the change table, we have two now... and the slippers OMG, the slippers are incredible.
