This month we are dancing and snoozing with Yawn. Not only are Yawn the perfect bed fellow for us as we are both great in the bedroom, but we are around the same age, fledgling businesses, started by women who wanted to do something a little bit different. I met founder Alice and over a coffee and it was soon clear that we would be great friends. I now sleep (and hang out from the moment I get in the door), in my Float Away pyjamas. We’re doing some great things together this month, and were looking forward to pyjama time together.
Describe your job in 3 words.
Challenging. Exciting. Varied
What’s the best thing about what you do?
I love creating something from nothing and working with great people. I am also really enjoying connecting with other business owners like yourself.
What’s your next big interior challenge?
My home. We sensibly (!) bought two flats and are converting them back into a family home. Currently therefore living in a cold attic while builders knock away downstairs – fingers crossed it will be worth the pain.
Are you all about long lie-ins or up with the lark?
Definitely long lie-ins. Thank goodness I have always been a good sleeper.
Instagram or Twitter?
Neither personally as I have avoided social media – but loving learning about Instagram through Yawn – and becoming a bit addicted.
What's on your bed today?
My Yawn pyjamas and probably stuff I left in a rush getting ready this morning. I would love to have a tidier bedroom!
Do you wear a nightdress, pj's, or nothing?
Who would you invite to your dream midnight feast? dead / alive/ animal?
All my dearest friends as life is too busy currently and we don’t get to see each other as much as I would like.
How do you like your eggs?
Soft boiled – the perfect Sunday night food.
Clean sheet Friday or clean sheet Sunday? (Harriet and I disagree)
I wish I was that routine! Something to aspire to… Any day would look fantastic waking up to the Dove Grey Linen set (my personal fave from SLS). That colour is super relaxing.
Do you have a bedtime ritual... can you share it with us?
Currently it involves struggling to open and fill hot water bottles and warming up the bed before I get in – it has been freezing as we still haven’t got windows on the back of the house.
Flat sheet or fitted sheet?
Fitted. I haven’t mastered the art of flat sheets. Maybe when I am a grown up (not sure when that will be)
You’re off for a weekend camping… What one luxury would you take from your bedroom?
Some Clarins Eau Dynamisante – it has a lovely fresh smell, often requird on a camping trip.
Tell us a secret?
Struggling to think of one that I am willing to share!
Who should Molly meet next?
Ade Hassan - the founder of Nubian Skin – I met her through setting up our businesses at similar times and found her energy and positivity extremely inspiring.
