LION THE LABEL PRESENTS

We sat down with the Sydney based Lion The Label co-founder and busy Mum of a baby + a toddler, to find out how she balances motherhood and running a small business, her memorable moment from high school and something that many people don’t know about her.

We also cheekily asked what her favourite LTL tableware bundle is!

How did you meet your husband Fred?

We were both living in New Zealand at the time and met while we were studying at University. We then realised then that we had a friend in common while we were still studying in high school! We married 10 years later and moved to Sydney in 2016.

How did Lion The Label come to be?

I had always wanted to create and offer children products even when I was still working as an early childhood educator in New Zealand. After the birth of my daughter, we created Lion The Label and offered children silicone tableware as they were not available on the market at the time. From my experience as an early childhood educator with a passion in nutrition, I wanted to offer a range of children silicone tableware that helps families work towards successful mealtimes.

Describe yourself in 3 words?
Sensitive, passionate and eccentric

Tell us something that not many people know about you?
I was a qualified Zumba instructor many years ago and taught 3 times a week while working 40 hours a week as an educator, whew!

What do you find most challenging about motherhood?
Continuously reflecting and working on myself to stop damaging cycles from being passed onto my children 

What are your pet peeves?

People wearing their shoes in the house, going to bed without washing my feet and falling asleep with makeup on

Name a memorable moment from high school? 
My history teacher promising to buy the whole classroom takeaway chips if he makes a spelling mistake when writing on the whiteboard and if we spot it. One day, I pointed out a spelling mistake that he had made and he immediately got one of our classmates to go down the road to get us all takeaway chips. I’d never seen so many teenagers paying attention in class until that day. 

What’s the longest you’ve gone without sleep and why?
33hours. Pre-hubby & kids, there was a time where I went to a nightclub with my friends and stayed till morning. Then, I headed straight to work.

I wish I valued sleep way more back then!

If you could only eat one meal and drink one drink (besides water) for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Sushi and coffee. Both pregnancies were a torture when I couldn’t have both.

How do you balance motherhood and Lion The Label? 

Doing it one day at a time because each day is never the same and the kids’ needs will evolve as they grow. Running Lion The Label becomes part of our daily routine as it is important for the kids to see us dedicated to our work and to them. It’s all about moderation and balance eg sometimes we’ll have less sleep because we would be busy working after the kids have gone to bed, and sometimes, we would be out all weekend with the kids. Also, as our toddler craves more independence, it means that we find ourselves with moments where we’re able to send a few emails etc.

What is your personal goal for 2022?
That the four of us will be able to go on a holiday and create some wonderful memories.

Lastly, what is your favourite Lion the Label tableware bundle?
This is a really tough one! But based on my kids’ current needs, I would say it’s a close one between the 7-piece and 8-piece bundles!
