Ok, your #LifeInBag flat lay exposé*. In 1 sentence, please explain.
My life in bag essentials include my phone, wallet, a bottle of water (always need to stay hydrated), mints, paw paw lip balm and my sunnies.
Sparro is a testament to high flying females known for their love and dedication to work, and working out. But also…to the one who may have been known to arrive at the gym with her top on inside-out (or backwards – sometimes both). Sound familiar?
Haha! Can’t say it’s happened to me yet. I usually get changed into my workout gear at the gym after work!
We love working out for many reasons, but mostly because a solid sweat gets us offline, sharpens our focus and gives us the confidence and energy to smash some serious life goals. Tell us about your current targets (career, life or otherwise).
This year I’ve been able to achieve things that I didn’t expect myself to. Work is always challenging me, which is why I love what I do. My goal for 2018 is to do better and go bigger in everything I do. I’m hoping to be able to re-locate to New York for work, and to work on bigger projects that I could ever dream of. Personally, my goal is to invest in some property very soon.
The daily workout. AM, PM or somewhere in between?
Your #LifeInBag breakfast of champions looks like …
Weetbix or oats with some fruit!
Canned tuna for lunch on the go. Legendary, or LEAVE IT BEHIND?
Definitely legendary. It’s in my bag right now for lunch today!
Seriously smart, understated, Scandi-style design gets our wings flapping. What destination, space or event has recently inspired you?
I recently attended a talk about women driving change in retail and tech which I found very inspiring. To see a panel of women leading their fields of expertise and supporting other females was brilliant. I think it’s really important that as women we’re always empowering and supporting each other to drive change in our communities and globally. Everything we do is done with passion, drive and empathy, and I think that’s a secret power to behold, and one we don’t channel enough for the better.
In terms of a destination that inspire me, I love Japan. I love that it’s so advanced in technology, and yet also so serene and traditional on the other. I’m just fascinated with everything Japan has to offer.
Any amazing products, brands or things you’re loving because they ‘ease the load’, minimised tailspins or saved you from ye old form-function compromise?
I’m a genuine advocate of Rollie shoes, not because I work for them but they’re truly the most comfortable, lightest pair of shoes you’ll ever own. They’re my go-to travel shoes, but honestly, I wear them every second day because they’re great for just about any occasion or setting.
Simple words of wisdom to other Sparro fans looking to mirror your success?
Be passionate about what you do. Make opportunities for yourself instead of waiting for them to come knocking at your door. Be a go-getter. Take initiative, go above and beyond because it always makes a difference. That’s how I got to where I am today 😊 Be proud of yourself, even for the little wins!
