How are you keeping moving?

 

Post pregnancy, I have been so excited to start spinning again. Cycology Club has launched an AT HOME workout, which I am doing three times a week and loving! I’m also doing a daily walk to get some fresh air and about to start post-natal Pilates with Body Love via zoom! Keeping moving is helping my mindset immensely, it makes such a difference to my mood and motivation levels.

 

How are you keeping motivated?

 

Keeping busy, active and stimulated is key for my motivation levels. My days at home are actually super busy balancing business and my newborn baby, so structure and organisation has helped me a lot. I’m also putting effort into my outfits, doing at home mani’s and attempting an at home blow dry to feel presented and good. It really helps to put a smile on my face!

 

What are your favourite Mode pieces for home?

 

I have been living in AGOLDE jeans! Currently, my favourite pair are the Riley High Rise in Zephyr which I wear with a simple white tee by ATM and some Missoma jewellery to add a bit of glam.

How are you keeping moving?

 

I'm walking for an hour every day which is keeping me sane! I’m also doing sets of stair runs - great for the booty!! Taking this time out to look after my body, as funnily enough, I never made the time before!

 

How are you keeping motivated?

 

By trying to see the silver lining in this forced pause for us all. I’ve definitely been more creative since this all happened and have been able to work on a side project that has been in the pipeline for a couple of years now. Home-schooling my children definitely has its moments… However, they also are keeping me motivated. We have so much to look forward to on the other side of this!!

 

What are your favourite Mode pieces for home?

 

The Maggie Marilyn Sherbet Knit and Shine Bright Skirt as a set for some vibrancy! I also can't look past the Dree Crop and Daisy Legging by SILOU for those moments I can get outside for a walk. I love the Lavender set, it's so comfortable!

How are you keeping moving?

 

My husband and I take our baby boy out for a walk every morning to get some fresh air and get out of the house and I’ve also been doing Fluid Form Pilates at home and Lean Bean Fitness classes which I’m loving.

 

How are you keeping motivated?

 

Having a daily routine has been imperative for me to stay motivated. Also having a 5-month-old baby to look after keeps me busy!

 

What are your favourite Mode pieces for home?

 

I am living in the Atlanta Dress by Sleeper, it's so comfortable and easy to wear! I pair it with the matching hair ribbon and a pair of Emme Parsons Slides. I'm also loving the Weekend Jumper and matching silk Slip Skirt by VINCE which looks really chic and is still so comfortable!

How are you keeping moving?

 

I chase after 2 angry little squirrels all day. I’m also snack queen so I’m up 100 - 150 times a day for that ;) I also do Pilates 5 days a week as well as walk around the block - for sanity!

 

How are you keeping motivated?

 

For my babies. They don’t know what’s going on and I like to keep it that way! I don’t want them to remember this, but I want them to learn from it. I’m hoping we come out of this a better world.

 

What are your favourite Mode pieces for home?

 

I adore every piece of AGOLDE! The denim shorts and t-shirts are my go-to’s when I’m out of pyjamas! I also adore the Albus Lumen linen shorts with a relaxed singlet. The SILOU Audrey Crop and matching Daisy Legging set so I feel human. Also, any of the Rotate dresses to get a shameless selfie against Jimmy’s man shed door!

How are you keeping moving?

 

As soon as I am up in the morning, I throw on some tunes and dance my way about the house while cleaning and tidying and… Boom! The house is ready to go for both myself and my partner for "WFH”. Currently, I am obsessed with Spotify playlists by Harrison Kennedy. This Latin Fiesta Playlist has really got me wiggling this past week.

 

How are you keeping motivated?

 

I am finding it rather difficult to be honest. Staying out of the fridge is really challenging for me, I am a grazer!!!!! Last week, I watched the entire Tiger King series in one day! I am not going to spin some nonsense - it is really hard and if you have any tips, please send them to me on IG!

 

What are your favourite Mode pieces for home?

 

I am all for colour at the moment! I find that when you wear bright, you feel bright! Mood elevation, much? That’s why I’m loving the super fun and vibrant Leonie Dress by Rejina Pyo and also the Boat Neck Knit by Vince, even better with the matching silky green skirt.

How are you keeping moving?

 

I'm spinning at home a lot via @shelterdoublebay

 

How are you keeping motivated?

 

I'm so inspired by what everyone is sharing on social from their cooking, gardening, new projects and of course, chic outfits.

 

What are your favourite Mode pieces for home?

 

I've been loving my AGOLDE jeans. My favourite pair is the Riley in White which I've been pairing with a cute Poplin Shirt by Ganni or a knit if it's a bit cooler - I love the new Jatte Turtleneck by Samsoe & Samsoe. The La Collection Florence Dress is also heaven!

How are you keeping moving?

 

I'm staying active at home with my spin bike with SHELTER at home. Also going on daily walks for vitamin D and air.

 

How are you keeping motivated?

 

I keep motivated by trying to have as much structure and routine as possible at home. Wake up, exercise, a bit of phone time, breakfast and then to work aka the desk at home. I have also been getting dressed every morning in a 'work' outfit which have found helpful.

 

What are your favourite Mode pieces for home?

 

I'm all about an outfit that's easy to throw on in the morning with minimal thought, looks chic and is still comfortable to be in all day. On my current rotation is the Elaine Knit and Luella Skirt by Samsoe & Samsoe - I'm loving the camel tones. If I'm feeling a little more relaxed I'll put on my SLEEPER Lounge Dress and a pair of ATP Slides if I have to go out for groceries or a short walk.

How are you keeping moving?

 

I have been doing prenatal Pilates and yoga classes via Zoom as well as Fluid Form at home Pilates. I also try to walk outside in nature or a green space every day to help clear my head and get my blood moving.

 

How are you keeping motivated?

 

Some days it is hard, but I try to keep structure and routine in my day for myself and my daughters. Waking up and getting moving helps start the day on the right note and getting outside! I also have found that this has been a great opportunity to do little creative projects that I would have otherwise not felt I had time to do, so that keeps me interested and busy.

 

What are your favourite Mode pieces for home?

 

The Bebe Top and matching Ruby Skirt by Anna Quan is my favourite set for home, the fabric is so soft and beautiful! I also really love SIR Label pieces, especially the Alena Wrap Dress.
