MEET LAURA

Laura is another Sydney-sider that has busted a move to Lake Macquarie and she couldn't be happier. Beautiful on the inside and out, family orientated Laura shares her story, favourite places to shop, wine and dine.

Thanks Laura for joining our Women with Style blog!

1

How long have you lived on Lake Macquarie?

A ‘Newbie’ – we bought our property in Cooranbong, in October 2019 and made the move up from Sydney. We have not looked back!

Tell us what makes you feel truly grateful to live in such a beautiful place?

Coming from such a busy, fast paced area previously, what I love most about where we live is the slow pace, friendly people and being so close to the lake!

What motivates you to get up and start your day?

Having a set routine helps, knowing I have a gym class to get to and then get straight into a day of work! Working from home fulltime since COVID has just instilled in me even more the importance of planning out my day and getting out of the house as much as possible!

Give us a quick rundown of your morning routine.

Wake up between 5-6am (depending when my daughter wakes up), Gym class at Girl Guide Health at 7am, back home to make some breakfast and help get my daughter ready for Daycare. Its either daycare drop off or get straight in to work!

Who inspires you to live your
best life?

Definitely my family, I want to be strong, fit and healthy for my daughter and to lead by example so she inspires me to get up in the mornings and get my but to the gym even when I am not feeling up for it!

My husband and my mum are also huge sources of inspiration, both extremely kind, hard working and always thinking about those around them!

My husband and my mum are also huge sources of inspiration, both extremely kind, hard working and always thinking about those around them!

Where do you grab a coffee?

Abbeys Coffee Co. Abbey sets up at the Roundabout on Freemans drive and I love her coffee! I’m always greeted with a big smile!

8

Favourite place to eat, wine and dine?

One of our favourites is 8 at Trinity Point! They do great coffee and breakfast menu but I think their cocktails are even better!

Lake Macquarie is an amazing place, when you can join friends on a boat and cruise around to a special restaurant on the lake for lunch. For us, 8 at Trinity Point is that place!

What is the name of your favourite locally owned lifestyle business (clothing, homewares, hair & beauty)?

Charli and Lenni – On the boulevard in Toronto – they have the cutest kids’ clothes and accessories!

When my hair needs some love, its Auguste Jones Salon in Belmont. For everyday beauty its got to be Skin Deep Beauty in Morisset, and Carla at Cosmetic Rejuvenation Clinic in Warners Bay is wonderful!

Name a local charity or fundraiser that is close to your heart.

Dress for Success Sydney – It is a great organisation that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

I recently organised a clothing drive at my work where I asked my colleagues to bring in any unwanted or unused work wear, it was a huge success!

What is an example of a way you give back to the community you love?

I try to shop and buy locally as often as possible, whether that is the fruit stall on the side of the road, our local Watagan Honey or use local services for beauty, clothing etc.

Give us one or two sentences that sums you up perfectly!

Loyal, Thoughtful and determined!

13

Something that makes you smile.

My daughter – hands down! Every day in so many ways!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Hopefully with a few more kids, perhaps have purchased another property (close to the water) and thriving in my work life as well!

Who do you nominate, as an LSL Woman of Style?

I nominate Emily Ferris! Not only is she a devoted mum, she also runs a successful concreting company with her husband, and are very generous with their support of the local community including cricket and rugby league.

Emily is definitely a woman of style!
