Hayley also owns Southwood Living, an online store featuring collections that are aimed to create calmness and wholeness in our crazy lives and encourage balanced living.
I think people had pretty low expectations of me but little did they know! I’m laughing as I type these words.
The humans that inspire me are the ones that are brave enough to be truly seen. I love raw, authentic people. Listening to stories lights my soul.
I feel desperately sorry for all the businesses that have been adversely affected by the whole situation. I don’t know anyone that isn’t struggling in some way right now but I do believe there are lessons in everything. Entrepreneurs are always adjusting their sails and as you know, pivot is my favourite word!
I’m always working on something new! Lockdown just magnified the importance of human connection to myself. I love nothing more than holding a safe space for my mavens (the name that Hayley gives her hub members…it means expert in their field, bright spark’).
I’m such a tactile person, I love nothing more than a hug. The first thing on my agenda is to gather as many mavens together!
Oh I’m useless when it comes to remembering titles of bands and songs. My boys laugh at me all the time. I have a playlist on my Spotify called ‘Gravelly women’ at the moment. My favourite type… a woman singing from the heart.
Hahaha an eco toilet for our new space. Since lockdown I haven’t been buying many clothes. It’s made me take a good look at myself and the way I used to spend money.
Fashion wise – Who’s look/style do you really admire?
I can’t leave the house without a red lipstick, mascara and a good foundation!
I buy the same foundation religiously- Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lift and Firm
I have worn a red lipstick every single day since I was about 14. To me it has always been my secret sign of power.
What is your favourite lipstick? Brand and shade?
Ooooh I own hundreds of red lipsticks. I love a Chanel!
I think my only advice is that it’s ok to feel all of those things. Take some comfort in knowing you are not alone. And breathe it out!
