A typical day in Sydney?

I wake up, play with River while I brew a pot of coffee. Go for a beach walk with the whole family (including the dogs) do some work at home while River has her midday nap… go to a yoga class in the evening then the day is ended with a glass of red wine and a home cooked meal.

As a new mother, how have you changed as a person?

I have changed in so many ways. I have learnt so much about patience, strength and true love. I feel like it has shaped me into my true self and I absolutely love it.

Describe a perfect Saturday with your family.

Beach and surf all day.

Best advice you´ve been given as a mother?

Enjoy every moment because they grow up so fast, and its so true!

What inspires you?

My daughter, everyday.

I put all my focus into playing with and nurturing River and it always makes me feel good when i can make her feel good.
