Where do you live?

I live in Sydney, Australia which I have called home for the past 6years.

Where were you born?

I was born in Adelaide, South Australia. I still visit family & friends 2-3 times a year - I love being able to go back for a weekend here and there & enjoy the calmness of being in the smaller city.

What do you do for fun?

When I am not working on the brand - I like to feel although I try and live a balanced lifestyle, some days I love to feel fit and healthy & head to the coastline to do the Coogee-Bondi coastal walk followed by an acai bowl for breakfast.
Other days I feel like eating chocolate & any type of carbs in my vision followed by sipping on a few too many wines in the sunshine with the girls. Also a recent hobby I have been playing poker 1-2 nights a week with my man sometimes we go 3 nights a week, it's becoming a bit of an addiction.

What do you do for a living?

I am the owner of Boehm Intimates, starting a lingerie line had been a dream of mine since I was 12yrs old. So trying to create new designs & collections along with juggling many other behind the scenes jobs that are required for an online store usually keeps me pretty busy. 

Where is your favourite holiday destination?

My last holiday which was 3years ago pre-Boehm Intimates was a trip around a few states in the US we ended up making our way to The Bahamas & found an AirBnb on a small island with only us 3 girls and a few locals on it - I literally had the best time & really love The Bahamas or pretty much anywhere coastal with warm weather. My dream holidays are Italy - I would love to make some lace from scratch to know that I have made a complete lingerie set from scratch and I would also love to go to Mexico - for that sunshine & coastline. For now I will keep making tacos at home & pretend I am there.

When you think of the perfect black bralette what comes to mind?

This is hard for me because I think of many different styles, moods & fabrics. I edsigned and made over 7 samples trying to figure out what to do for my black bralette. I decided to go simple with it & focus on a nice fit and fabric. I think keeping it classic works well. 

How would you recommend your black bralette to be styled?

Simple/classic bralettes can be styled in so many ways, however I personally usually like to wear a black bralette under a semi sheer top, not too sheer but just enough that you can notice the bralette. 

Do you prefer to wear the bralette as a fashion item or do you prefer it to be private?

I love wearing the bralette as a fashion item, what is not to love about a comfortable bra with no wires that looks pretty peering through a sheer top.

How do you want the women who buy your bralette to feel?

Wearing beautiful lingerie has always been important to me, from a young age it would give me a boost of confidence when I didn't really have any. I always loved the way it made me feel & that was confident, empowering & beautiful in my own skin no matter where I was or what I was wearing on top. I created my lingerie based on this and I really hope women who wear my black bralette & also any other of my Boehm Intimates sets that I design & currently still handmake myself feel the same way.
