Sunday mornings are for putting on your best active wear... annnnd getting in the car to drive the five blocks to get coffee and then driving home again. 🙋🏼‍♀️ ⠀

✈️ Goodevening, Sydney. While I definitely messed up and slept on the complete wrong leg of the LON-HKG HKG-SYD flights, I wanted to take a moment to say how awesome the Inflight crew on @cathaypacific CX139 were from Hong Kong to Sydney this evening. I have such respect for flight attendants and Cathay Pac always do it with a smile. ⠀

I especially wanted to thank the Cabin Supervisor on tonight’s flight, Kevin. Kevin welcomed me on board and thanked me for my loyalty on flying with @oneworld alliance and then said “I am Kevin, anything you need, you just let Kevin know, and call out “Kevin!” and Kevin will magically appear.” I felt like I was on a 90’s Tim-Tam commercial, and Kevin and his beautiful (first and third person) introduction made my absolute day! ⠀ ⠀

Thank you, Kevin and all CX crew for getting us home safe, and with a smile. -SWx (this is not a paid post)

Just sitting here waiting on Ann M. Martin to call....Kids love me. I’d say I’m hands down Naya’s 8th favourite Aunt.... if not 8th, definitely 9th...actually, let’s just say I’m in the Top 10.

This is my God Daughter, Naya. I thought I’d try impress her by telling her some of my best jokes...Tough crowd. cc @melyudi

OIL ON LINEN, 119cm x 92cm
Artist: @CorinneLewis_Art

It is a truly incredible honour to have had sat for one of Australia’s best portrait artists, Corinne Lewis. This is her submission for the The Portia Geach Memorial Award, Australia’s most prestigious art prize for portraiture by female artists, with the subject to be a man or woman distinguished in Art, Letters, or the Sciences.
Corinne’s entire body of work is dedicated to celebrating women, so to be able to sit for her is incredibly special to me, made only more so by the fact that is being submitted for a portraiture prize that is dedicated to celebrating Australian women in the arts.
Corinne, how lucky we are to have your talent in this world.
With much love and infinite admiration,
SWx

ARTIST’S STATEMENT: Portrait of Samantha Wills, 2018.
As an artist, philanthropist and writer Samantha has much to offer the world. As an artist, her jewellery adorns women physically, but as a Writer and Philanthropist her words and work are like jewellery for the mind.
In my portrait, Samantha leans forward with a confidence and strength, yet her dress falls to unveil her vulnerability, a juxtaposition that women of this generation are having to find balance between as we navigate the continued conversation and fight towards true gender equality. One earring visible symbolizes her brand as an artist. Her gaze direct and clear is reflective of her philanthropic work, and her commanding pose, shows beauty in strength.

Samantha Wills is an Australian success story, growing her accessories brand from Port Macquarie to the world stage of New York City. Wills shares her story with transparency and vulnerability with a commitment to sharing the hurdles and downfalls, not only the wins or the “highlight reel”. Samantha’s message is; “Little girls with big dreams, become women with vision.” In 2016 Samantha founded The Samantha Wills Foundation, an organization designed to empower women in business.
Samantha has been labeled “Australia’s biggest export since Vegemite,” by Australian fashion writer Ines Mendoza. – Corinne Lewis, ARTIST

13Oam finish tonight Federer v Millman at the US Open... What an incredible match! 🇦🇺🎾

When you’re just tryin’ to fit in. 🐻🐻

10 YEARS AGO… I designed a teardrop ring that I loved but thought it would be in the collection for only one or two seasons…. That was until @EvaMendes wore it (in 2009) and it became our instant yet unassuming signature item. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
The Bohemian Bardot ring changed the trajectory of the @SamanthaWillsOfficial business, it has become a bridesmaids gift favorite and women the world over have become collectors of them as you will see from some of the amazing collections in this gallery from our beautiful community. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
We have released this ring in over 300 different stones and colour combinations, and since 2011 Selected Limited Edition Bohemian Bardot rings have had 100% proceeds go to selected charities, seeing over AU$150,000 donated! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
To celebrate our best girl’s 10th birthday, we have designed her a mini me! The Mini Bohemian Bardot is available as part of our final six month celebration (view collection via link in bio). ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Thank you to everyone who has built these incredible collections, I know there are many more collections across the country that I couldn’t fit in this gallery, but please know I see them all on here, thank you for so graciously sharing them for us to see…. Please continue to share your collections, by tagging @SamanthaWillsOffcial or using the #SamanthaWills hashtag. ⠀⠀ With gratitude - SWx⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

🍰Eliza from @CopperForkCakes made this spectacular cake for our Bohemian Bardot 10th Birthday Celebration – Eliza started her own company at only 22years old, I came across Eliza’s incredible work because the Universe sat Eliza’s Dad and myself next to each other on a recent flight and when he told me that his entrepreneurial daughter had launched her own business at 22, I knew it was something I had to check out! Thank you Eliza for lending your incredible talent to this project, I look forward to following your success! - SWx

DAD: “Well, isn’t that a lovely shade of leather”⠀

ME: “Oh thanks Dad, that’s lovely of you to notice, it’s actually one of my favourite hangbags, I got it when I -“⠀

DAD: “I’m talking about your tan. But it’s a good thing you love that bloody overpriced hangbag so much, because at this rate you’ll end up looking like it... I still think they switched the price out when they saw you coming, bloody daylight robbery if you ask me. Ok! I’ll hand the phone to your Mother now. I love you. Wear sunscreen. Bye. PATSY! Your daughter is on the phone!”

I just shat on the floor next to this lovely white couch, then jumped right on up on it to make myself at home on its crisp, clean, cloud like surface. I got yelled at and as such have retreated to my ACTUAL bed to think about the decisions I make in life. 🐾🐻
