“To slow down, get off technology, forgive, be kind, listen, love and laugh. Life is so busy - with or without kids, we live in fast paced times - and although having children has made my days extra full and my downtime minimal, it has also reminded me of what’s important.”

stud, kellie layered necklace, longline puffer jacket, relaxed hooded sweat, pleat pencil skirt, mia tall boot, Poppy wears animal beanie and animal jumpsuit, with sage jewellery box.
"I love the Sage Jewellery Box for its form and function. While closed this piece offers a sculptural quality to my bedside table, but when open, the layering of compartments and clever mirror design allow me to easily organise my favourite jewellery pieces."
You’re mum to three girls! What have they taught you so far?
“That the days are long but the years are short. Being a mother is both the most incredible and daunting experience of my life. They have taught me to live fuller, dance longer and always make the most of the sunlight. If only we could all stop and see the world through a child’s eyes.”

dress, Logan and Aleeia wear ocelot cord dress, Isla wears ocelot cord jumpsuit. Above right: Eleesha wears CR print cami, CR print pant and shearling slide.
“As a child I always remember buying my mother new pyjamas for Mother’s Day. Cliché maybe, but she loved them. Now that it’s my turn I can see why. Wearing pyjamas is normally the only time as a mother we can enjoy wearing something beautiful and comfortable without having children’s sticky fingers or food marks all over them. It’s truly a luxury.”
What has being a mother taught you?
"Every single day I am reminded by my three darlings to be grateful for what we have, and to have a true appreciation for all of the small moments. They may seem insignificant at the time, partially because they can be so fleeting, but they really are the most meaningful. They are the ones to be cherished forever."

knit and jersey lounge pant, Quinn wears teddy sherpa jacket and solid rib legging, Theo wears stripe crew sweat and cuffed denim jean, Caris wears teddy sherpa jacket and solid rib legging, with dune drink bottle.
"I love gifting thoughtfully and consciously by selecting an item that lightens the impact we have on the planet. This drink bottle is sleek, stylish, and the perfect way to keep hydrated on the go, time and time again."
What have you learned from Arabella?
"To keep an open mind and to be open and accepting of change. It’s always something that makes us feel uncomfortable, but I think change when you're a family is such a beautiful thing. It takes you to a new place, you grow by overcoming challenges and become a better person than you were before. I always thought that I would be a certain type of mother and I now laugh about the things that I thought I would do. You just need to do whatever works for you and your family to get through the day. Also trust your gut, it’s much more powerful than you think!"

blazer, metallic jacquard knit top, circle skirt, dani clean sneaker, Arabella wears animal sweat and animal sweat pant, with shearling slide.
"If there is one thing a mother can appreciate, it's comfort. When I slip these Shearling Slides on in the morning it’s like I'm walking on clouds, and who can deny how cute they are too. I may or may not have been caught wearing them out of the house with a pair of jeans."
Congratulations on welcoming beautiful Lúa to the world! You're a very new mum, but what have you learned so far?
"Since Lúa arrived, I have realised how important is it to live in the moment. My mind is always ticking away about what I have on for the day, tasks to attend to and jobs to manage, but now that she is here I truly cherish every special moment we have together as a family."

shirt and geo print satin pant, with mia carafe set.
"At the moment I'm up throughout the night with Lu, so this beautiful carafe will be a welcome addition to my bedside table during the evenings, and next to the sofa for day. I always appreciate having lovely objects in the home, and when they are also functional it makes for an organised and streamlined space. I also love that this outfit is so comfortable and effortless, but still fun and perfect for our weekend family brunch dates."
What is the most important lesson your children have taught you so far?
“They’ve taught me what it means to love, and to be loved, without expectation. They’ve taught me true patience. But I think the most important thing is that they’ve taught me who I really am. They’ve shown me my purpose.”

hoop, alpaca cable sweater and pleat pencil skirt, Sonny wears joey knit jumpsuit, with CR sheepskin boots.
“I chose my snuggly Sheepskin Boots and warm woollen outfit because winter is on the way and this mama needs to keep cosy! Plus I LOVE the beautifully warm tones and soft textures of each piece.”
