1. Tell us about your beautiful self. Who is Ebony Louise?
I am a young mum to my 6 month old daughter, Ava Jayde, and a qualified beauty therapist. I live in the beautiful Gold Coast city and have my entire life – I don’t think I could ever move!
The 3 words that best describe my style would be: simple, feminine and on-trend.
Growing up, my friends and family would always ask me what I did to make my skin look so good, how my hair looked so healthy or where I got my clothes from. I started seeing other people blog, and write about the things they loved the most, so I thought why not start sharing what I love with everyone?! And because I loved writing it went hand in hand.
I got into beauty therapy because it was a career I had dreamed of pursuing since I was a little girl. I started my course a few months before I fell pregnant and while working as a receptionist at a small Salon. Although I’m a stay at home mum currently – I eventually hope to finish my Diploma in Business Management so I can run my own beauty salon.
I’ll be honest, I am so exhausted. My life, both work & personal, have changed so much in the past year and it’s really hard to juggle everything. I am still getting used to this whole mummy thing. So I make the most out of the time I do get, I think outside the ‘9-5’ box and I also ask for help when I need it which was something I’ve learnt over the past month. I love what I do and I will always make some sort of time for it.
I guess working in the beauty industry and studying it taught me a lot about what was good for our skin and what wasn’t aswell as what was actually in all of the ‘good products’ & brands on the shelves. It grossed me out so much. If you were to read what ingredients where in most common skincare, food & beauty products – you’d be shocked at how many of them you aren’t familiar with or have never heard about, which 99.9% of the time are a whole load of chemicals. Our bodies weren’t made to consume or use such harsh ingredients, and over time they can cause a lot of damage. By switching to natural and/or organic, your body will thank you for it.
A day in my life is always different! Everyday I learn something new, everyday I find myself doing something new or trying something new and I guess I have motherhood to thank for that. I wouldn’t change it for the world though!
Have the courage to live a true life to yourself and not the life others expect of you. Don’t live a life based on other people’s opinions, be 100% you and only you!
My favourite item currently would have to be the Satin Dreams Slip Dress in Champagne. It’s just so hot where I live currently and I think this would be the cutest & comfiest outfit to wear on any occasion seeing as you can either dress it up or down!
I love being a part of such an amazing, empowering group of beautiful women that work together to support, love & build each other up. These gals are literally like my online best friends and I adore every one of them!
