Tell Us Your WHF Secrets ;)

We've reached out to women in the Arnsdorf community to reveal their personal tips on how to work from home in style and comfort while staying healthy, sane and engaged.

What is your name and what do you do?                                                                            Harriet Gregory                                                                                                           #harriethoundstooth                                                                                                                          I am a Concert and Event Manager at Melbourne Recital Centre.

What is your connection to Arnsdorf?                                                                                      I am a regular client of Arnsdorf and always recommended it to others. Love their sustainable practices and the transparency of the brand.

What are you doing to stay active?                                                                                 Wonderful Melbourne PT Nick Milright aka Fitzroy Fitness Club  as been doing weekly zoom classes. They are great and challenging. It is great to do something in 'real' time. No cheating by pressing pause. Also going for runs, I love the guided runs on the Nike Run Club app.

 

Are you reading a great book or do you have a favourite podcast?                                       l just finished reading 'Rebecca' by Daphne du Maurier, I listened to it as an audio book. Such  a great way to experience the melodrama of the novel. With all the constant screens in our lives at the moment, it is refreshing to experience something without being static. I love to go for walks and listen to books. My all time favourite podcast is the Backlisted Podcast - the hosts John Mitchinson and Andy Miller bring new life to old books. Every fortnight they are joined by a guest to discuss a book that may have fallen into obscurity/is lesser known. It is wonderful. They are so passionate and so charismatic and I have discovered so many wonderful authors from listening to the podcast.

What about food. Are you cooking or are you addicted to a particular snack at the moment?                                                                                                                                          I have really been enjoying 'Nat's what I reckon' cooking videos on Instagram. Encouraging people to cook classic dishes and not buy the jar sauce versions. Very funny!  A much loved Northcote cafe that closed last year 'Sookie La La' have been sharing recipes of popular dishes from the cafe. Their 4 ingredient peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies are so moorish. 

 

 

 

Are you motivated to 'dress' for the day or are you repeating outfits? What are your go-to pieces?                                                                                                                                               I had not been dressing up and getting around the house in old jeans and a t-shirt but todayand decided to do things differently and dressed up a bit. I actually wore my new Arnsdorf skivvy and my beautiful Le Kilt skirt I got in London last year and put on some fun eyeshadow. I felt so much better for it!  Been trying to get lots of wear out of my Verner summer dresses from recent collaboration with Lisa Waup before it gets too cold!

Have you been pleasantly surprised by engaging in something you normally wouldn't?              I normally hate days with lots of meetings and just want to get on my with my work, but WFH I really look forward to zoom meetings and collaborative tasks.

What songs are you feeling right now?                                                                                        I am loving the new Fiona Apple album 'Fetch the Bolt Cutters'.  Songs on repeat are here.

 

Stay well, from all of us at Arnsdorf X
