L O R E L E I



What do you do
Day job - admin for a not for profit organisation supporting the cultural and linguistic rights of children in Victoria. I also DJ and perform with my friend under the name Br00klyn Queenz.
 
What else? 
I'm working towards a career change as we speak, and you know lying on my couch with my cat watching reality TV, or ferociously scrolling on Instagram.
 
How would you describe your personal style? 
At work I'm a budget Kim K who wears sneakers for comfort and when I'm at play I'm going for budget Lil' Kim Donatella Versace hybrid.
 
What are you wearing right now?
A Kim K knock off dress from who knows where (mystery Instagram boutique), underneath is a myra swim swimsuit, shoes from Ego official and sunglasses are Versace.

 
What is your favourite thing about yourself? 
I'll be real, my butt.
 
What is the best advice you have ever been given? 
To listen to my mum (advice from my mum herself lol), my mum is actually 98% always right about most things.
 
What song is the soundtrack to your life? 
It changes depending on my mood but I know you see me by Lil' Kim or Human Nature Madonna are front runners.
 
What are you reading at the moment? 
Elsa Schiaparelli, A Biography by Meryle Secrest
 
If you had to describe yourself with 3 fictional characters, who would they be? 
Larry David as Larry David in Curb your enthusiasm, semi fictional but very relatable. Romy from Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, and an aspirational one Cookie Lyons from Empire.
 
Five things you can't live without?
Phone charger, concealer, headphones on public transport, olive oil, regular nail appointments

 

One woman or non-binary person you admire in your personal life?
I can't single out just one, I admire all my friends for many reasons, mainly because they're all really intelligent strong young people doing what they want and encouraging me to do the same.
 
One woman or non-binary person you admire from afar?
Phaedra Parks from Real Housewives of Atlanta. She's using her reality TV platform to do a lot of amazing things through The Phaedra Foundation which encompasses several programs for disadvantaged youth in the US. She's an attorney and mortician who has a penchant for a thong bathing suit. I'm sort of obsessed.
 
What's your jewellery style?
Minimal but bold and anything gold. I can't wear too many pieces at once. I'll do a statement earring and nothing else or just a plain gold chain or choker.
 
Favourite piece of jewellery on the site? 
Magic Kin Three Way necklace by Eightly
 
Hot tip? 
Always double the amount of garlic suggested in recipes, unless you're allergic of course and in that case I'm sorry. That's tough.
