Gillian

 

My full name is…
Gillian Wilkins.

 

But my friends call me…
Gilli.

 

I grew up…
Between Australia and the Philippines.

 

My home is…
Mallorca & The Northern Rivers.

 

The perfect day is…
Always by the sea or a flowy and nourishing day at home.

 

 

I find comfort in…
Water.

 

You will usually find me…
By the sea, in the forest, at home, in my studio or at Mamayaya HQ cooking, brewing, creating for mamas.

 

My favourite thing to do with my children is…
All the things that deeply connect us. At the moment, it’s drawing superheroes and creating stories with my son and gardening with my daughter.

 

Three words that describe me are…
Imaginative, curious, optimistic.

 

I treasure…
My family & friends, my creativity.

 

  

  

I have fun…
As much as I can.

 

I am grateful for…
So many things but in particular health, family & friends.

 

I crave…
For myself…. Less interrupted sleep and more time to look after myself better.
And for my family… travelling somewhere off beat, immersing ourselves in a foreign culture and going back to basics.

 

I feel womanly when…  
I am fully in my body, feeling into the areas that need attention, moving it freely and intuitively, allowing all emotions to land and move me.

 

My favourite thing to listen to is…
Rain.

 

 

The scent of home is…
The morning dew.

 

Something people don’t know about me…
Mundane household tasks like cleaning or washing dishes often gets me into a creative flow. Resetting the energy of a space when you work from home or have kids around, is deeply satisfying for me.

 

I am my happiest when…
Watching sunsets and sunrises.

 

I feel proud of…
It all.

 

I relax…
With my breath.

 

 

 

My favourite body part is…
My feet, my hips, my womb.

 

My favourite snack is…
Papaya and lime.

 

My favourite colour is…
Yellow.

 

Our family tradition…
My mum makes noodles every time we celebrate a birthday… even if she is not with us to celebrate.. in her words, "its for long life!".

 

My favourite childhood memory…
Moments spent in the country side of the Philippines,  my Lolo´s little farm and going to the village school with my aunt´s who were all teachers. They are the most beautiful memories.
