When we dreamed up this little old business we could never have imagined that our biggest reward would be the community of incredible women who have come along for the ride with us.
We began this as a team of two but have quickly found ourselves with a cheer squad of sisters, who we feel are more than simply customers, that have offered unwavering support, encouragement and inspiration of the kind we never knew existed.
How good are women? Seriously ... we rock!
Celebrating the women we adore
We feel so supported that we want to spread some of that sister magic around a little by showing love to some of the incredible women we've become smitten by along the way.
One of our favourite humans, the incredible gem that is Dolly Parton once said: "If you’re comfortable with yourself and know yourself, you’re going to shine and radiate, and other people are going to be drawn to you."
For each of the women we highlight in this series that statement is so, so very true.
Authentic, flawed, real, open and uplifting ... these women have a magic that has drawn us to them in a big way, and we want to shine a light on the good stuff about them that inspires us every day.
So come on, let's go! Indulge us as we introduce you to some of the women who we adore ...
Meet Nadia Baker aka @miss_nadia_loves
Hailing from the pristine coastline of Northern NSW, Nadia Baker radiates an authentic pure sunshine that emanates from every pore of her body. No joke, this gal could be the sprinkles on a donut, she's that sweet!
Nadia's tagline is: "Inspiring women to love themselves wholeheartedly" and that's a promise that she delivers on every day.
With a flair for styling and a goal to promote body confidence, Nadia has amassed a community of devoted followers who hang on her every word when it comes to making the right fashion choice for their body type.
Nadia took time out of her day as a mum to a teenage son and three adorable little pooches to let us get to know her a little better ...
What inspires you?
I am mostly inspired by people who have overcome extreme adversity in their lives. Those people who don't take no for an answer, the ones who stand up for what they believe in, the ones that make sacrifices every day for people that have lost their voice and the ones that fight hard for what they believe in and know in their heart to be right.
People that have huge hearts and do selfless acts, those people are my heroes and the ones I will always aspire to be like.
Describe your style in three words ...
Feminine. Relaxed. Comfortable.
What's your dream way to spend a Sunday?
Sundays are my absolute favourite day of the week!
My dream Sunday starts off slow. I love a morning walk to the beach with the pooches followed by a bike ride into Kingscliff for my favourite acai bowl then down to the beach for some "me time." I love nothing more than laying in the sun reading a good book.
I usually end the day with some self care: a bath followed by my nightly skin care routine. After all it is self care Sunday!
The song that gets me on the dance floor is ...
All the classics from the 80s & 90s are my jam.
What's your best tip for boosting confidence?
I think that confidence is something that all women struggle with at some time in their lives. This has been challenging for me and something that I continue to work on.
My top tips for gaining confidence are:
- Practicing self-love
- Belief in yourself
- Know your values
- Improve your self-talk
- Focus on your strengths and talents
- Wear clothes that make you feel great - never underestimate the power of a good outfit!
A quote I have lived by for many years is: Get up, dress up, show up and never give up!
