Who are you
Hey hey I’m Alice! One of the part time gals. Y’all might’ve seen me on the weekends guzzling back the filter coffee and bouncing around the store. Miss you all heaps and I can’t wait to meet again for some chat and styling tips!
What are your current favourite home comforts
I think I wouldn’t be alone in saying that coffee has been the optimal at home comfort. We’re lucky to have a coffee grinder at home so I’ve managed to carry my addiction of Supreme coffee over from the store to the house. A good red wine or two hasn’t gone astray either.
I’ve been doing a loooooooot of yoga these last few weeks. My usual yoga studio has been running classes via zoom, which has actually worked really well and has been awesome for keeping a lot of connectivity going. Fruit has to be my favourite at home comfort though. My family has a delivery subscription just for avocados! We also have THE BEST grape vine at home which I’ve been taking utmost advantage of.
What is a discovery or rediscovery you’ve made during this time
I’ve definitely rediscovered that I’m a creature of habit. Even with the opportunity to lie in or do something experimental, I’ve stuck to the same routine pretty much every day. Get up, have the coffee, do some uni work until the PM does her press conference. Then it’s a walk or bike - I’m really lucky to live close to the river so this is always whimsically beautiful— , back to (attempt) uni for a bit, then yoga!
I’ve also discovered the joys of the kitchen. Normally I don’t cook or bake that often, but with my regular brunch spots currently unavailable my sisters and I have been cooking up a storm to compensate. The elaborate brunches we’ve made for ourselves have been topnotch if I do say so myself.
Where do you look for inspiration or escapism
My friends and family have definitely given me a lot of inspiration. Throughout the lockdown we’ve been doing quizzes about each other, cocktail nights, lots of home workouts, praying and sharing ideas with each other. I’ve loved seeing the cool, creative ways my friends are getting through iso as well. Whether it's on my social media feeds or in our catch ups, it’s exciting to see what everyone’s getting up to!
I hate to say it but my current go-to escape is Tik Tok… may or may not be addicted!
If a parcel arrived on your doorstep from INF/DEF what would you love to be in it
Up there for me would definitely have to be the prawn pants from Henrik Vibskov, love love LOVE them! Always a sucker for the Meadowlark rings, any of those would do. Maybe a pair of the new Stepneys? One of the Marle jumpers? Ugh, I’d be happy with anything really!!
