About me: I grew up with my three younger brothers on a beef property in North-West Queensland. This is my third attempt at living in Townsville, it must be third time lucky because I am really loving Townsville this time around. I work in the Agribusiness Banking sector. I absolutely love my role within the Bank. My role is challenging, requires daily problem solving and helps people grow. Whilst I love having a corporate career, I do miss chasing cows on a regular basis. I do love clothes, make-up and getting dressed up however my favourite attire would be my worn to death paddock RM jeans, a comfy work shirt, my boots and a cap over my day-to-day office attire. I was a tomboy until I was 21, never bought a dress myself until I was in my early 20’s. Now I possibly enjoy shopping a little too much.
My Bag Mimco Black Tote bag with a black cow hide pocket. I bought this as a birthday present to myself in 2013. I worked in Longreach at the time, the cow hide is a touch of home.
Lipstick Stilla in Brulee and Mon Ami. Mum works with my brothers on our cattle property. She always wears paddock clothes with a bright lipstick. Just because the only other people you mostly see are family or cattle doesn’t mean you can’t wear a fun lippy. It’s my mother-daughter thing, I always carry a lippy or two.
Rabbit Pompom Keyring A gift from a client of the Bank when I was in Longreach. I went back last year to complete some training and popped into their store to say ‘hello’. They gave me this keyring as a thank you for when I was working in the Longreach office.
Hand Cream L’Occitane En Provence. I love this stuff. Randomly a store in Longreach started stocking this when I left to move to Townsville. My friends must know me well. As a farewell gift, I received a tube from nearly each of my friends. It reminds me of my amazing friends and four years in Longreach.
Oroton Wallet This is a 30th birthday present from my brother and sister-in-law. It also came when I changed position with the bank and travelled for six months training other teams. It reminds me of my family and of the fun, hectic six months of travel last year.
Earphones I’m always playing music. My brothers say that they always know when I‘m home because I always have something playing in the background or on my iPhone in my back pocket pumping out the tunes.
Pop’s Photo Poppie my Caramel English Cocker Spaniel.
Note Book Kikki.K, Start Today. This is my work, priority to do list. Who doesn’t love great stationery?
Parker Pen Bought this when I first got my job with the bank in 2011.
Tea Bag Peppermint tea – my favourite!
Tiffany Reading Glasses My English Cocker Spaniel is mostly good. I’m not sure why she did this, having never chewed my glasses before. She got these from my office desk when they were brand new and chewed them viciously. Luckily it was mostly the arms which I replaced, but the frames still have a couple of teeth marks that you can’t really see. Makes me giggle now when I put them on but at the time not so much.
Book I love reading quirky, fun, crime novels. I read one to two a week.
Queen Bee Cuff Love fun jewellery.
RALPH LAUREN POLO Cap I actually flogged one of my brothers ‘Ralph’ caps. It’s my ‘go to’ when I go home.
YSL Manifesto Perfume When I have something to celebrate I purchase a ‘token’ to remind myself of that achievement or time in my life. I bought this when I got my new role within the bank in January.
Ring by Samantha Wills My ‘go to’ bling.
