Hey guys. Alysia here. I’m a Sydney mum. I have two beautiful girls aged 11 and 13. I am the co-founder of Hamblins – a super spesh little florist and lifestyle shop at Maroubra Beach.
My business partner (co-founder and all round top chick) Victoria Hamblin, is the amazing florist and namesake for the shop. I however have never really had a career but rather a colourful and varied bunch of jobs all of which have led me to what I’m doing now at Hamblins.
I have studied many things starting with a retail traineeship after school, make-up artistry, accounting, art history and finally colour design after 10 years of being an at home mum. I’d say my biggest asset is my eye for detail and passion for design and beautiful things.
At Hamblins, my role is all about delivering an experience. I am an ideas person! I’m the interior designer, stylist, merchandiser, curator and sourcer of wonderful things both locally and from around the globe. I like to create and design things from branding and image to products for the store. I also look after the running of the day to day business stuff like accounts, social media and sometimes even doing the odd flower delivery.
But enough about work!! What I really, truly love is my family. My amazing husband, two beautiful daughters and our super handsome dog, Salty. They truly are the light in my life. I still can’t quite believe I’m a wife and mum. Being a mum was so physically and mentally exhausting in the beginning. But it’s so amazing now.
I love hanging out with the fam. Going to the beach. Going for walks. Watching movies. Singing songs very loudly and embarrassingly. Just hanging out at home and trying to simplify our lives by waking up each day and taking the day as it comes. When I’m not with them however I have been known to get up to quite a bit of mischief with girlfriends where I’m usually found dancing like a crazy lunatic, overriding playlists with 70s and 80s music and belting out tunes all whilst enjoying too many G&Ts!
So that’s not really me in a nutshell but you’ve got a good idea anyway.
What you’ve probably realised by now is that I’m not a great writer but hopefully my passion for stuff in general will be infectious. I’d love to share lifestyle ideas with you about design, trends, travel, fashion, products and anything else that comes to mind that may or may not be relevant.
Looking forward to a fab 2017 with you all. Bring it on!!
