We asked Chloe the bellamumma questions to find out a little more about her…
You, in three words? Curious, passionate and resourceful.
What inspires you? Travel, fashion and nature
What’s your work title? Director/Designer/Developer/Mum
What was your first-ever job? Sorting files for my dad back when computers didn’t do the job! I am a bit of a perfectionist so I had a pretty efficient system for some pretty boring work. I think I asked for a promotion day two.
What did you want to be ‘when you were little’? Property Developer
How did your career come about? I was actually dating a very successful developer and we lived between London, Monaco, Miami and Sydney doing a whole range of designs together! Was thrown in the deep end and that seems to be where I work best.
Explain your usual day?
* Wake up before kids, exercise or prepare for the day (eg, emails, meditate, shower or get everyone’s clothes and food sorted)
* Kids up change, cloth, breaky
* Either nanny arrives or its daycare run
* Say hi to kids before lunch nap (always a bad idea because as soon as I leave they lose it and it makes nannies life so much harder…but I need the cuddles)
* Eat at desk while working
* Work or out for meetings
* Nanny leaves
* Dinner, bath, bed for kids (all while answering calls and emails, because for some reason everyone wants to chat then)
* Husband and I eat dinner and do daily download on life
* Shower and Bed!
What ‘makes your day’? If I ever get some “me” time, but without fail it’s when my husband, son and I all tell each other what we are grateful for that day. ( I can’t wait until my daughter can talk!)
Three things in your life you can’t live without? My family, my phone (sad I know) and a beautiful space to live in that I connect with.
4 fave songs you’re currently listening to? This is hard because I listen to such a vast range of music pending my mood but my fav summer beats would be.
Stunnin’ – Curtis Waters
The Rope – Lane 8
Man O To – Be Svendsen Remix
Syria Original – Unders
Fave place to escape to? Puglia but because that’s not happening anytime soon, Seal Rocks.
What’s your favourite time of the day? Either sunrise or in the afternoon, just after the sun has peaked for the day. I’m obsessed with light and how it energises me.
How do you relax? Meditate or exercise or send the kids the inlaws and do nothing with my husband.
The best piece of life advice you’ve received? You will always pass failure on your way to success and growth never stops.
What will you be doing 5 years time? Developing properties for myself and creating harmonious spaces for clients around the world. So basically what I’m doing now but with a bit of world domination involved.
