ABOUT ME: Born and raised in Townsville, I moved to Coolum in 1993 where I had my two eldest children (Clancy and George), then back to Townsville. I’ve been in hairdressing for over 28 years and a business owner for over seven years. Last year I launched Moksha Room, the new Aveda Day Spa at Oaks Hotel, Palmer Street. We’re open 7 days a week so my downtime usually consists of short and sweet trips to the Atherton Tablelands with my youngest son Max, standup paddle boarding on Lake Eacham and camping at Lake Eacham Tourist Park.
My Bag From my favourite store, Avanti. I’m really drawn to Malene Birger as a designer.
Guardian Dogs. My beautiful mother gifted me these Guardian Dogs. They signify the importance of companionship which is relevant to our relationship. I cherish her immensely.
Vitamin B is my saviour for the long work days, especially in my afternoon food comas. I would like to suggest that we adopt the genius concept of siestas. But until then, Vitamin B is my next best thing.
Aveda Lip Colour – the lip shade Sheer Clover is my go-to. It’s a soft nude pink and it goes with anything.
Glass Tea Flask. I received this beautiful Glass Tea Flask in an A Box of… gift set.
Apple Headphones I’m always listening to music. If it’s not Jack Johnson to chill me out, then its Flume to pump me up!
Stevia I always carry my little box of Stevia around for coffee dates, because I’m forever trying to give up sugar (aren’t we all).
Air Control is my favourite light hold Humidity Spray. Humidity can be challenging some days, so I keep this with me at all times.
Buddhist Monk Prayer Beads My dear friend Lisa gifted these wooden Buddhist Monk Prayer Beads from the Himalayas.
Guitar Pick Music has always been important to me and I love playing acoustic guitar. I played in a band when I was younger, bass guitarist, vocalist and believe it or not, I was a drummer!
Chakra spray I use my Chakra spray as a body mist and spritz in the salon, car, and apartment. It brings harmony and balance to the heart chakra.
Bright coloured Clips for my receipts, receipts, receipts!
My Walk Tall Book by Anthony Gunn is kept in the salon and appreciated by many salon guests. Each page has a lovely worded treasure. “High-esteem is affected by three things: Your THOUGHTS, Your EMOTIONS, Your ACTIONS. Change one and you change all three.”
– Walk Tall, Anthony Gunn.
