We chatted to P.E Nation founder Pip Edwards to find out more about how she balances a busy work life with being a Mum to her amazing son, Justice…
What’s the best thing about being a mother right now in 2016?
I’ve been a mother for a decade now, Justice is about to turn 10 and it’s such an amazing time. He is his own person with a vibrant, sensitive and funny character. I just can’t believe that this awesome little human is mine. I’m super lucky to be a mum. And I’m super lucky that we have grown up together in a way (I was 25 when I fell pregnant). This is our best year yet.
What’s a parenting trait that you’ve inherited from your own mother?
Children thrive on rules and boundaries. They need them. They want them. And they actually respect them.
What advice would you give to your pregnant self if you could go back in time?
Savour the moment, it all flashed by so quickly. You literally blink and they are 10!
How do you balance being a mother and being fashionable?
The only way I balance and juggle and make it all possible is because I have my own mother helping me every step of the way.
How would you sum up your own personal style?
Tomboy, all about Denim, urban sport.
Has your style changed much since becoming a mother?
Not really. I think if anything, I’ve come into my own and who I am a lot more. Sometimes I think I favour tomboy too much and feel like maybe I should wear a dress every now and then, but it’s just not me. Haha!
Do you have any favourite people or brands that inspire your look?
Not so much people or brands but I’m very much inspired by menswear. I just love all things denim and all things sporty.
What fashion accessory can’t you live without?
I’m obsessed with earrings! I have 8 holes in my left ear and 3 in my right and they are full of mix and match earrings that I never take out. I absolutely LOVE a statement earring to dress up an outfit.
What’s your morning ritual?
Cuddles with Justice, then a mad rush to get ready for work. I can’t function without my skim mocha and I pick one up on the way to the office.
What’s your favourite thing to do when you have a moment with Justice?
My favourite time with Justice is when I put him to bed. It’s our honest and quiet time – I lie in bed with him and he snuggles in and tells me everything about how he is feeling. It’s the one time of the day where all the craziness and noise disappears and it’s JUST US!
What’s the best gift you’ve ever received on Mother’s Day?
Every drawing, every card and every smile and cuddle from Justice is amazing.
What’s top of your Mother’s Day wish list this year?
I don’t want anything. I just want to have a good day that’s totally focused on Justice.
