How would you describe your wardrobe?
My style is a mix of trends and my own fl avour. I’m a huge fan of bold accessories, prints and statement pieces. I can look at an item and think, ‘this is so me’ or ‘not a chance!’

Has your style changed since you became pregnant?
Being pregnant changes your style completely. It becomes more about comfort than trends, which means relying on things like accessories to keep you looking fashionable.

What wardrobe tips would you give other mothers to be?
Comfort is the key. It’s hard to deal with changes and your body needs support. If you must wear heels, have back-up!

What’s your key to work dressing in general?
Since my work involves attending a lot of beauty events, I try to mix up my wardrobe with one statement piece that is the centre of attention. I love bright colours and jewellery.

How do you dress to impress?
If an outfit does’t represent me, then it’s always a no-go. I’m a huge fan of things that have a feminine fl air.

Do you have an item that makes you feel more confident?
Killer heels. Nothing makes me feel more fashion forward than a knock-out pair.
