The 'S.Wallis Woman' understands fashion but isn't consumed by it. She has an appreciation of quality, luxury fabrications, attention to detail and brand exclusivity. Elegant of mind and classic in nature. Adventurous. A seeker.
I have been lucky enough to win numerous awards including the Victorian Telstra Business Women’s Award, Rag trader’s Retailer of the Year and an induction into the Business Women’s Hall of Fame and the Metropolitan Fair Trader of the Year award for excellence in customer service. Getting recognition is always a nice feeling and would definitely be one of my career highlights.

A Matea Designs woman is strong and confident in herself. She's savvy and fashion forward but has enough of her own style to not just follow fashion trends but rather be able to pick out pieces that flatter her body shape, items that are timeless.
I was looking for something different to do with my photos. I came across an app and I played around with it and that's where the squiggles came from. Every time I take a photo / post I always have a focal point and I want my viewers to see that and the squiggles are meant to accentuate that.
The beauty look is inspired by 70’s Milan. Lashings of mascara on the top and bottom, big beautiful brows as well as a play on textures on the eyes. The framework of the eye is constructed with a rich matte chestnut shadow teamed with muted copper highlights. The face is signature Kookai; structured, fresh with a peach crème blush applied to the cheekbones, temples and lips reminiscent of the iconic beauties of the 70’s
Mi Goals began with a problem, I couldn't find a beautiful product to write and track my goals in so I ended up creating one. From initially wanting to solve my own problem I quickly realised I could help others do the same for themselves and now Mi Goals exits to help and empower individuals.
I think being a Miss Universe Victorian finalist had to be one of the most exciting things. Not only was I given the platform and tools to inspire self-confidence but I also got to be surrounded by empowering women who want to see the world change for the better. The girls I had the pleasure of meeting have become lifelong friends. I am looking forward to another take this year.
Finding your own signature style is a creative process I enjoy. My personal style I would say is ‘Relaxed sartorial’, I love classic tailoring but you will rarely see me in a full suit.
Travelling with my Activated Coconut Charcoal is the best. Whenever I need a good sleep, have had too much coffee or think I have had something dodgy I take ACC. I also use it to make masks and whiten my teeth. It helps with jetlag and if I think I have had something a bit suss I will take it to prevent getting sick (eg water in Bali!)
