The Athlete's Foot Back-to-School Breakfast with Sally Obermeder

Celebrities such as Candice Warner, Kyly Clarke, Kara Ryan, Jo Casamento, Matty Samaei and Nicole O’Neil joined super-mum and lady-boss Sally Obermeder for breakfast at the Botanic Gardens Restaurant in Sydney as she chatted about life and clever back-to-school hacks in partnership with The Athlete’s Foot. Sally’s sister Maha Koraiem MC’d the event and the two delighted guests with their sisterly banter.

The event was the official launch of The Athlete’s Foot’s collaboration on back-to-school hacks with Sally Obermeder (some of Sally’s great tips below) and The Athlete’s Foot School Rewards Program which donates $5 from every pair purchased until 10thFebruary 2019 to your school.

Some of Sally’s handy back-to-school hacks:
BATHROOM CHECKLIST
List things like “Brush teeth”, “Sunscreen” and “Hair up” on the bathroom mirror in whiteboard marker. There can be no excuses for the kids not to be clean and prepped when the checklist is literally in front of their face!

TURN BACK TIME
Start practicing getting up early for school in early or mid January so it’s not such a shock to the system when school goes back. Gradually bring forward bed and wake times through the month. A gorgeous, fun alarm clock is a great Christmas gift to get kids on board with this.

 TACKLE BOX TRICK
Keep hair-ties, bobby pins, hair-clips and ribbons in a tackle box. It sounds strange but tackle boxes have the most convenient, easily visible, small compartments. This prevents the hair stuff winding up all over the house and makes it really easy for you or the kids to find what they need in the morning.

HOOKS & BASKETS
Set up a bag hook and basket station for each child near the front door. This needn’t be expensive. Places like K-Mart and Ikea have some great-looking cheap options. Have the kids place their bag on the hook and their school shoes, hat and any other paraphernalia in the basket when they get home from school. That way you know where to find things like lunch boxes and school notes each evening and no-one is desperately running around the house trying to find shoes and bags in the morning.


Party time from Moss & Spy

The vibrant colours and textures of summer have arrived at Moss and Spy’s Queen St Woollahra boutique as its latest collection sets new standards for fashions over the party and Christmas season.

“I wanted the Summer 2018/19 collection to offer a fresh take on summer colours with beaded embellishments to make the dresses stand out not just for their complementary shapes, but for the unique designs of the work” said designer Lia Tsimos.

“Women wearing Moss and Spy this party season will stand out from the crowd in some of our most luxurious sheer fabrics with billowing sleeves and voluminous hemlines. Beautifully embellished detailing inspired by the colour and texture of nature at this time of the year,”

“We’ve designed an exclusive collection which brings a contemporary approach to traditional florals, such as one of my favourites – the Luella dress which comes with a sleeve or thin straps and features exotic Ikat embroidery on black tulle.”

“As an Australian made label, we strive for excellence in design and quality so that each of our unique collections offer women a distinctive style that will truly set them apart at any event this summer.” Lia Tsimos said.
