MY NEW NORMAL: KATE ROSE

MY NEW NORMAL: KATE ROSE

I GET UP ON A MORNING FOR…

I’m early to bed and an early riser. My day starts at 5am, I enjoy a coconut flat white in peace before my Zoom workout session with APEX. It has kept me motivated and focused, but it has also helped me to maintain a routine whilst navigating the challenges COVID has brought to the business. I answer any urgent emails, send any updates to the team, and organise my working day before the kids wake.

BREAKFAST IS…

Overnight oats, or eggs on sourdough.

MY DESK SET-UP INCLUDES…

A large desk positioned at the window with lots of natural daylight. I love to have a little background music (generally an Ibiza chill album) playing whilst designing – and a jug of iced water with a slice of lemon.

LUNCHTIME BRINGS…

A walk to the studio, which is only two miles from home, to check on any urgent requests and deliveries to customers, before walking back home. I like to pull together a tasty mozzarella salad with fresh tomatoes and basil from my mum and dad’s greenhouse.

TO BREAK AWAY FROM MY HOME OFFICE…

I make a hot drink and go on a long walk along the beach. I always feel a sense of calm and peace when I see the sea, and it gives me lots of new inspiration for future collections.

WHEN 5 O’CLOCK HITS…

I pull on cosy loungewear and prepare something tasty for dinner. I really love cooking, I find it so relaxing. The slower pace of life has encouraged us to sit down as a family for a meal every evening. I have invested in a few new cookbooks over lockdown and love experimenting with new recipes and ideas.

I’M WATCHING…

I actually don’t watch any TV, I would much prefer to flick through a home interiors magazine or compile boards on Pinterest for my next project. 

I’M READING…

How Do You Like Me Now? by Holly Bourne. Light-hearted and very funny, it has a modern twist on the Bridget Jones story.

I’M LISTENING TO…

The Bodcast with Chloe Madeley – I love the variety of guests and information about all things health and fitness. A really interesting listen with some handy tips and hints along the way.

3 TOP TIPS FOR STAYING AT HOME…

1. Stick to a routine wherever possible.

2. Always have something to look forward to – be it a soak in the bath, a nice meal, or a movie night.

3. Create a relaxed and cosy environment. Light a candle, plump your cushions, add your favourite flowers to a side table, enjoy and love your surroundings.
