Meet Jess. A mother of three boys, proclaimed Melbourne coffee snob, shoe-addict and lifestyle blogger. Jess prefers a cosy night in than a crazy night out, gnocchi over salad and chocolate over ice-cream. She spends most of her weekends with her friends and family, enjoying a Maltese feast every Sunday and lusting over her next trip to her happy place, Noosa, QLD. Like many of us, Jess is still trying to figure out that work-life-kid-balance thing, but agree's that putting her best foot forward in a pretty frock is always a step in the right direction. Find out more about Jess in our Q&A.
What does the perfect home office set up look like for you?
I like to have as minimal around me as possible. I just need my essentials! A laptop, notepad, pen, pencil case and a cup of coffee or tea! I love writing and I am a traditional pen to paper girl!
What are your top tips and tricks for keeping an organised wardrobe?
I organise in categories - such as all skirts together, all tops, all dresses and all knits. Then I order them in colour, and then again within the colour order. Finally I do them from short sleeve to long sleeve. For my accessories, I love to see them neatly displayed in a jewellery box.
How do you wind down at the end of the day?
There is nothing I love more than curling up on the couch, sipping a hot tea or coffee and watching my kids play. I don’t often get to ‘sit’ and relax so it is a nice moment for me.
Christmas is just around the corner, how do you choose the perfect gift?
I love tailoring gifts for each person and of course spoiling as many friends as possible. I always try and mix up what I buy, so not everyone I buy a present for gets the same gift! I love Review’s new collection of gifting because I could really choose something for anyone - a cute jewellery box for my niece, a tea cup for my mum and I love (for me) the note-books as I use them all the time!
Whether you’re looking for a gift for a loved one or the perfect trinkets to complete your home office or wardrobe, the Review Gifting Collection has something for everyone.
2020 has been a crazy year, what are your goals for 2021?
I hope to build on my new business Jella Case, spend a lot more time with my kids as they are growing so fast and to be more in the moment.
