Meet The Team

 

Creating and refining our own personal taste is an important aspect of working within Wanderlust Life. Our designs each have a collective mix of the teams personalities and skills which is what makes us, well…. us! We check in with the team to see what’s inspiring them right now, what they’re listening to, what has been their biggest risk to date and lots more…

B E C K Y

What do you listen to when you are working?

Gregory Porter (we all love Greg)

What’s the first thing you do when you get home from work?

Take my bra off (and then pour a massive glass of red wine!)

What does a typical day look like for you?

Andrew brings me a cup of tea in bed. Then every day is different, just how I like it. A combination of treating peoples aches + pains, playing with gemstones and organizing Bay Fitness retreats.

If you could relive one day from your life, which would it be?

The day I arrived in New York for the first time with Matt and immersing ourselves in the madness of it all.

What is the biggest risk you have ever taken?

Leaving my job of 10 years as a photorealist painter to join WLL, thankfully a risk that has more than paid off!

What do you listen to when you are working?

We love a good 80’s playlist, sometimes 90’s if we are feeling like we want to re-visit our teenage years. There’s always some Gregory Porter thrown in there!

What’s the first thing you do when you get home from work?

We have two beautiful cats who I adore so will ply them with cuddles (and food), turn the music on and pour a nice glass of wine while deciding what to cook for dinner!

 

G E O R G I E

What do you listen to when you are working?

I’m constantly curating playlists – I’m never without music in the studio, at home or in the van. Really depends what mood we’re in, we can swing from an afternoon of 80’s power ballads into some RnB Soul. I’m loving Charlotte Day Wilson and Rosie Lowe at the moment.

How do you stay grounded and do you have any mindfulness practices?

I’ve practiced yoga for many years, and it’s a perfect tonic for the stresses of modern day living. When it gets a bit warmer, we have an 8am class on a Saturday morning overlooking Saunton Beach with one of my favourite teachers (and friends) Andrew. It’s the perfect way to reset for the weekend.

What’s the first thing you do when you get home from work?

Get some music on & pour a wine. In warmer months I’ll always try and spend as much time as I can outside in the evenings.

If you could to relive one day from your life, which would it be?

Opening the studio at 37 Fore Street was one of the happiest days I’ve had in a long, long time. We put so much energy and love into the brand, and to see it come to life into a physical space was such an achievement. I’d love to relive that day (without the nerves) and enjoy it all again!

R E B E C C A

Which celebrity would you love to see wearing your jewellery?

Megan Markle or the Duchess of Cambridge because I have a secret love and slight obsession for the royal family. Imagine the Queen wearing a fine cord necklace!

What is your poison of choice?

Aperol Spritz / G&T / Marlborough Sauvignon (in that order)

How do you stay grounded and do you have any mindfulness practices?

I think I’ve unknowingly adopted a sense of calm and mindfulness by just living life. It makes you realise not to take things too seriously and never to be too hard on yourself and in turn gives you an inner peace and calm that you only get from experience (I sound 90, I’m 27)

What advice would you give to your 20 year old self?

I’d hesitate to say anything, because I wouldn’t be where I am now if I had changed anything, but I would probably say - have more self-confidence and know your own self worth! 

 

J E N 

What do you listen to when you are working
I think I've got a bit of a name for myself for listening to and recommending a lot of pocasts. Some of my current favourites are: The Guilty Feminist, Table Manners with Jessie Ware, Control Alt Delete, Desert Island Discs and Distraction Pieces Podcast are ones I'm waiting for every week.
 
What's the first thing you do when you get home from work?
It's usually changing into some kind of lycra, filling up my water bottle and running straight back out the door. Giving Roy (the cat) and cuddle in between.
 
How does it feel working in an all female team?
I love it - I once worked in a team where I was the only female and this is just so much easier! I don't feel like I'm fighting for my space and opinion all the time! The amount of love, respect and laughter going around at Wanderlust Life HQ is something pretty special.
How do you stay grounded and do you have any mindfulness practises?
Luckily, I'm naturally fairly grounded. I don't drink more than one cup of coffee a week though as that makes me really antsy! If I'm feeling a bit stressed out I'll just head outside. Jump in some water or stroll along the beach. This may sound morbid - I also think about my death bed and wonder whether the thing that's bothering me will effect my thoughts when I get there. If they don't I decide it's not that important and try to let go of it.
What advise would you give to your 20 year old self?
You don't need to drink that whole bottle of wine to yourself before you even go out. 
What is your poison of choice. 
Gin. Any which way.
 
If you could relive one day from your life which would it be?
Ooooh, that's a tricky one. I can't pick my favourite type of chocolate, let along my favourite day in 11701 days (yes, I worked that out).
