How did Maurie & Eve come about?! Maurie and Eve were my grandparents who passed away in a tragic car accident in 2001. With an urge to create I started making Maurie and Eve patch singlets out of my bedroom at home. I would work through the night to single handedly sew together the creations with love, all on the sewing machine that my grandmother had passed down to me after her passing.

The Take Me Away dress
What does a typical work day look like for you? I rise anywhere between 5am - 6am with Tavi wrapped around me.
I love to get down to Modern Movement for an the morning Vinyasa class but my husband usually leaves for work early so I’ll take the puppy out for a walk before the kids get up.
Our mornings are always busy getting everyone up, fed, dressed and packed for the day. I’ve always wanted to be the one to drop my kids to school so each day I kiss and wave the kids goodbye and head off to the office straight afterwards.
Your Mum to three beautiful children, tell us how you manage to run a business and be a Mum all at once? It’s a juggle!!!!! I know I cannot do it ALL I’ve tried to be the”best” Mum and the “best” Business women” but that's not possible and in the end it left me completely burnt out, unhappy with no time for myself
I would describe you as effortlessly cool … does this reflect your style at home? Style to me is feeling natural, comfortable and confident. Whether that’s the way in which I style my home, my outfit or through my work.
I love architecture, clean lines and big statement pieces. Fresh white walls, large open windows, oak floorboards, warm earthy tones and lots of plants.
How would you sum up your personal style? I would describe my style as minimal, relaxed, soft and undone
Up and coming trends for 2019 ... Personally we don’t “follow”trends but create styles that we want to wear. Oversized M+E linen & hemp dresses worn over relaxed vintage denim and gold jewellery.
Your top 3 must haves?
What is your daily health & beauty routine?! Each morning I drink 1 litre of warm water with a drop-of doterra lemon essential oil. Followed by a tongue scrape and a dry body brush. I moisturise with essential oils and my make up situation is very minimal, I apply tinted moisturiser with SPF. I use a liquid bronzer over my eyelids and cheeks. Mascara or nothing if they’re tinted. I have my eyebrows feathered too.
Daily movement and some form of exercise are critical for my mind and to help manage my stress levels.
I eat fresh organic fruit and vegetables and incorporate Essential Oils, Chinese herbs and Acupuncture to support me physically, mentally and spiritually.
I love a Oxygen and LED light facial every couple of months. At night I practice abhyanga which is a self oil massage. Pro biotics before bed and 8 hours sleep.
Any beauty products you couldn’t live without and would like to share with readers? I do TERRA essential oils, Frankincense is my secret weapon for my skin care, Elle Effect tan, I love a golden glow and Super Elixir Greens by WelleCo.
