WHAT KEEPS YOU BUSY?
Being a mom to a one-year-old baby boy named Lucas. We waited nine long years to have him and I am enjoying every minute of it. I am also one of the owners of Beyond Yoga, but to be honest that has taken a back seat to my being a full-time mom.

YOUR BIGGEST INSPIRATION?
My son Lucas and my husband Leon, my inspiration and greatest treasures.

WHAT CHALLENGES YOU?
The demands of being a new mom, from having sleepless nights to breastfeeding and keeping healthy.

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE LUXURY?
Right now, simply getting more than three hours of sleep at night.

WHAT OTHER DREAMS WOULD YOU LIKE TO FULFILL?
Going back to school to finish my interior design course, something I’ve always been passionate about.


THE BIGGEST LESSON WORKING HAS TAUGHT YOU?
Learning how to take a step back and being careful about the battles I take on.

WHAT IMPRESSION DO YOU HOPE TO LEAVE THROUGH YOUR PERSONAL LOOK?
I always try to keep things simple. I believe that there is beauty in simplicity.My look is very casual and relaxed, which is how my life is really.

“I like putting on coverage more than anything and I’m loyal to pretty much the same products.”

YOUR BEAUTY REGRETS?
Overplucking my eyebrows and getting a tattoo at 16.

YOUR BEAUTY ICON?
Kate Middleton. Her look is classy and elegant. She doesn't try too hard but always looks beautiful.

THE BEST BEAUTY ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED?
True beauty comes from within. When you feel good, it shines through. Every day, I try my best to be grateful about something in my life.

“I stick to the super simple formula: cleanse, tone, moisturize.”
