Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you spend your days!
You're currently 34 weeks pregnant, congratulations! How are you feeling about welcoming your first baby into the world?
Thank you! We are both so excited! What an amazing journey it has been so far! Even the

You run a beautiful skincare business from home, tell us about how this works with your lifestyle. What does a typical day look like for you?
Alabasta was my first baby that I have had for a few years now! It’s been amazing to watch it grow. I try and balance my days as much as I can, so I’m not stuck inside for too long, but this always depends on my daily orders! I must keep a constant eye on stock levels as everything is small batch to ensure freshness and long shelf life. My days consist of checking what has been ordered when I wake up, then after my morning routines of yoga or a swim I get to work hand making your items here in the Kiewa valley! After my post-office drop I always come back and check all my stock levels and respond to emails and organise socials.
