Founder & CEO

1. What inspired you to start Aurora?

Starting a business is something I have wanted to do for a long time, and whatever I did, I knew I wanted it to be eco-friendly and sustainable. I have a huge passion for travel and have often seen the devastating effects we've had on the earth. So after a few months of throwing ideas around, one idea stuck, and that was the beginning of Aurora Eco-Friendly Fashion. I want to make a stand against the fast fashion industry and empower women to 'Look Great, Feel Great & Do Great!' by providing them with affordable, sustainable fashion. We at Aurora want to support the slow fashion movement and make it the new norm. #TheSlowBrandMakingFastChange

2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

It would have to be HOT, HOT, HOT for a start (I am a summer girl at heart)! For me, it would have to be Indonesia, as it is my favourite place; the people are amazing (some of the most friendly and welcoming I've ever met), the weather is HOT, the views are some of the best in the world and I just fall in love more and more each time I visit.

3. How have you found lockdown? What are your key takeaways? 

Lockdown for me has been a real series of ups and downs but has bought so many more positives than I could have ever hoped for. For a start, this brand (which I am incredibly proud of); without lockdown, I am not sure it would have been where it is today. The time lockdown has given me was instrumental to my own self-love, growth and reflection on what makes me happy. This time has really opened my eyes to what kind of life I want to live and the legacy I want to leave behind. Also rolling out of bed and into work in my dressing gown is pretty cool (I do sometimes get dressed, into my activewear 😉 )!

1. What does a day at Aurora look like?

Where to start... every day is so so different at Aurora which I absolutely LOVE! I'm the kind of person who lives for change and a fast-paced day, which I definitely get! One day I'll be working on the website or coming up with new products, and next, I'm organising brand collaborations or planning for a photoshoot! Essentially, you'll find me making sure we're all on top of everything and continuously growing as a team! Doing our bit to save the planet!

2. If you could fly anywhere, where would you go to and why?

If you know me, then you know I love to travel at any given opportunity! I have explored so many countries already but there are so many more places to see in this world, so why spend it in one place?! I am a quarter Fijian, so Fiji has always been my dream destination! I have always wanted to visit since I was a child and I'm sure my Grandad would be very happy once I do! 

3. What's your favourite animal?

Without question, DOGS of course! Some may say it is an obsession but how can you not be?! We don't deserve them, they're the best! But aside from dogs, Orcas have always been my favourite wild animal. They are just so so clever and beautiful!

Social Media Assistant

1. What’s the favourite thing about your role at Aurora?

As the newest member of the Aurora family, my favourite part of this role so far is definitely being surrounded by all the creative & hardworking minds that make Aurora the thriving brand that it is. My role here includes creating and uploading content across all social media platforms including; Instagram, TikTok, Pinterest, & Facebook, (which I do 24/7 anyway so why not spread the message of sustainability while I’m at it !). Overall, I love being part of something bigger than myself- Protecting the planet!

2. What UK destination would you love to go back to right now?

I love exploring the UK, as much as hopping on a plane and arriving in a completely different continent is an absolute dream, long road trips with friends singing karaoke in the car is something I’d love to be able to do right now! There is still so much I’m yet to discover but so far, I would have to say Bath is where I have the best memories. Wandering the streets which are full of history and popping into little charity shops is a perfect day in my eyes!

3. Name one of your favourite Lockdown activities.

Without a doubt, my all-time favourite activity that I try to implement as often as possible, into my ‘lockdown routine’, would be going on socially distanced walks with my friends! Lockdown can be a very difficult time mentally for many people so getting out into the fresh air and exploring a new area in your neighbourhood is something I find so important.

1. What are your favourite things to do to relax?

I personally just love moments when I can just lounge around with my mind clear, knowing I have nothing to do and nowhere to be! Being a coach can be a very active and demanding job so it's important for me to have time to myself.

2. Which 3 emojis best describe you?

🤍 🤪 💯 - I have a lot of love to give, I am a little crazy, I always give 100% in everything that I do

3. What would you say is the biggest benefit of being active and staying fit and healthy?

For me, it has to be the mental health benefits! The way you feel after exercise once all the endorphins have been released cannot be beaten. Regular physical activity can increase self-esteem and reduce stress and anxiety, as well as increasing our overall physical health! My motto when training my clients is always 'getting it done' and 'feeling amazing', as I just know how great they are going to feel after!

1. What is your favourite country that you have visited?

My parents were born in the Caribbean so Barbados and Jamaica are my go-to destinations! Aside from that, I loved visiting Rwanda, there is so much history, amazing food and views. I went on safari and got to see lions, elephants and giraffes! I would definitely recommend a trip there.

2. What is your favourite sustainable item?

It sounds boring but I would have to choose my reusable metal water bottle! I use it every day and it has helped me cut down on my plastic use, plus it's great for the environment and helps to preserve our oceans!

3. What do you like to do in your spare time?

I'm a bookworm so I love reading any chance I get, especially if it's a thriller!
