I’ve always been a dreamer. Some people might roll their eyes at me when I say, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. But, I really do believe that no dream is too big. If you want something, go and bloody-well get it! Or at least try.
This time last year, I was in a very different headspace. I was eight months pregnant, anxious and panicking at the pressure of my brekky radio job.
Since doing my Year 10 work experience at an Adelaide radio station, I wanted to be a breakfast radio presenter. I worked my bum off to get there and I did it! It was amazing. But after four and a half years at the helm, I was ready to have a break. I felt like the world was on my shoulders.
This year, with a new baby and a new mission to focus on my family and my health, I created a new dream — Adelady.
Eight months ago, I sat at Nature’s Providore with my beautiful friend and ex-radio producer, Lauren, chatting about this ‘website’ we wanted to create together.
Like me, she’s a dreamer too. No idea is too big. We get excited over the tiniest things too, like pineapples and colourful pants. That’s why we’re kindreds.
Adelady is all about sharing the best of Adelaide – it’s EVERYTHING you’re into. We’ve worked so hard to make our dream come true and it’s ridiculous how proud we are of what “our baby” has already become.
I’ve been dreaming BIG since I took my first breath and I’ll continue to do it for the rest of my life. I have no choice. I have too many voices in my head telling me what to do. Hashtag, I’m a bit nuts.
So this couldn’t be more fitting — we are the faces behind this DREAM BIG charm, by Adelaide’s newest jewellery brand, Candid.
It’s designed and distributed here in Adelaide by a fabulous Adelady, Jen Burch. The complete range is made up of gorgeous discs and charms, crafted in solid sterling silver, with yellow or rose gold plating — it’s heaven!
The Dream Big charm is a little sterling silver delight. It’s gorgeous, fun, SA-designed and exudes ridiculous amounts of inspiration. It couldn’t be more “Adelady” if it tried.
There are some great people and incredible stories connected to each charm, which we can’t wait to share with you. I’m also proud to represent another charm, reflecting a more serious and emotional period in my life. I’ll share that with you soon.
But for now… let’s all surround ourselves with our best friends, throw confetti in the air and DREAM BIG!
