What do you love most about Jeanswest?
I wear Jeanswest nearly every day of my life when I’m not at work. I always get compliments on my outfits and people get excited that it’s from Jeanswest. I probably own 30+ pairs of jeans…
What’s your favourite/local store?
Bellerive – I know them really well, and love that sometimes they give me sneak peeks of new arrivals out the back!
What’s your favourite denim fit?
Mid-rise is my must-have! Other than that, I’m open to different styles. High-rise cuts me in half – after having twins my body has changed, and mid-rise is comfortable on my tummy.
How does Jeanswest fit into your lifestyle?
Jeanswest have clothing for every single mood I’m in. Because of you I even wear red now! Jeanswest fits into my life… Wait. Jeanswest IS my life!
Tell us what a day/week looks like for you at the moment?
I’m a nurse, so I do a minimum of 44 hours a week in shift work. I try to work it so that I have weekends off with the kids but it doesn’t always work out. My husband owns a business, so we work together to take turns getting the kids ready for school. The kids also do dancing and Tae Kwon Do, as it’s important to me that they have self-defence skills. Family time has always been important but now more than ever.
What are the challenges in juggling all of this. What do you do to relax/unwind?
Well… My husband recently bought me a hot tub for my 30th birthday! I questioned his motives at first as it’s worked out well for him too, but I do love to jump in and use it a chance to relax and have some quiet time.
What was going through your mind being invited to feature in a Jeanswest campaign?
I am so not used to something being all about ‘me’! It really felt like a prank, I couldn’t believe it was real. I have a lot of self-doubt, and I eventually started believing and assuming that no one else had entered!
What do your family/friends think about you being in a Jeanswest shoot?
Really proud! Their exact phrase was ‘You really deserve this’ and I thought to myself, ‘Do I though?’ Either way, it couldn’t have come at a better time, I’m so glad to be a part of it.
