As much as I love writing about my own beauty stories, I also enjoy reading about others just as much, if not more. I’m just really nosy. Enter the Dressing Table Diaries, an excuse to chat to some brilliant women in beauty and find out some of her absolute favourites. Kicking things off is the dynamic Instagram duo, This Is Mothership. Founded by fashion & celebrity stylist Gemma Breger and beauty director Samantha Silver, the two manage to juggle running their online site, always looking glamorous and raising two babies each… Clearly they know their stuff.
Here’s four fun facts about us 💫 📱We met on @instagram. Yep. It’s like internet dating for mums. We’ll tell you the full story another day… 🏥 We gave birth to our firsts in the same hospital, in the same room, on the same bed, after being in the same birthing pool, in the same way #freaky. (Umm but luckily not at the same time 🙈 as we didn’t meet for another eight months. 👯) And our seconds were two weeks apart but both seven days late 🙄 🎓We went to the same university, at the same time, know loads of the same people yet we never met. ☀ We stayed at the same resort, on the same island in the Maldives – 15 months apart. Gemma honeymooned where Sam got engaged. 🎈Our dads birthdays were both this week (Sam’s dad turned 60 on Tuesday and Gemma’s dad turned 62 on Thursday) so today we’re both going out to celebrate 🎂 With our dads. Not each other 😂 Have a fun Saturday, whatever you’re doing and let’s all pray we get to lie in tomorrow until at least7am (ha!) [#ThisIsMothership #ThisIsUs #InstaMum]
