Who are your style icons?
An all time favourite is Laura Jade Stone, she’s an absolute queen and looks gorgeous in anything! I also love Gergana Ivanova and Elise Cook.
What are your 3 favourite styling items?
Favourite styling items would have to be minimalist/elegant jewellery a blazer and cute heels or boots.


Do you have any holy grail beauty products you can't live without?
Oh, I’m a bit hopeless at the moment with a beauty care routine, but I would say I couldn’t live without a BB cream! Garnier BB cream, it’s approximately  $10 you can get it from the supermarket and it’s my go to. Or IT Cosmetics BB cream!
What is a social/ charitable cause you care about?
It would have to be anyone promoting positive mental health awareness and self development. I believe learning about yourself is so POWERFUL and everyone should explore who they really are in order to live a fulfilling, meaningful life.

Current favourite book?
I'm not a big reader, but I am currently actively trying to read more. I'm a non-fiction kinda gal and anything self-development and business related will most likely have me hooked! All time fave book so far would be The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle, Life changing for me. But currently reading rich dad poor dad and it’s so interesting and really shifting my mindset around money and business.

Q&A with Danielle Gillies

What drink are you ordering at the bar?
Spicy margarita thanks!

What's on your Christmas Wishlist?
A mountain bike

Where are you most excited to travel to after covid?
Europe and America, my dream is to visit New York City!
What is your life motto?
Since running and owning my own business, my life motto is 'What I can not control I can not stress over.' Having bought the salon during covid last year I was going into the unknown and very uncertain times. It’s really taught me not to stress over the things I can not control and focus on the things that I can.
I live by a few mottos, so I am going to throw another one in there! "Positivity is key, challenges and set backs are re-directions to better things more suitable for your life path". Living with a positive mindset will attract abundance, when things don’t quite work out the way you want. Acceptance and positivity are KEY for me in living a life full of abundance and greatness. You become what you believe so BELIEVE in yourself.
If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what does it look like?
A cute maxi dress for sure, it would need to be comfy, flowy and preferably white! Even the Apéro Label Alexa Embroidered Tier Dress in white, I could live in that!
