ON SET WITH PAIGE WATKINS
Tell us a bit about yourself - Where are you from ?
Hi guys! Paige Watkins here with my Shevoke fam! So happy to finally be in Australia for work. As a California beach bum, staying here in Bondi I’m really feeling like I fit right in. I grew up in Florida and now call Los Angeles home, so safe to say I feel happiest by the beach. I’m an adventure junkie and love trying new things and seeing new places. A normal day for me starts with a big cup of caffeine in the morning (tea or coffee) and a yoga flow before heading to a shoot. I always carry a notepad and a book on set to read and write during those little breaks at work. When I come home, I snuggle my pups, cook dinner and spend the evening being cozy with my loved ones. My new passion is food and cooking. It's my favourite pastime and the best way to unwind after a long day.
How would you describe your style?
I would describe my personal style as effortless. I find myself living in the basics, like a good denim and tee and splurge on amazing accessories to elevate my look. Shoes, jewels and sunnies are my weakness. I love a combination of unisex styles, rock and roll flare and pretty feminine pieces. Working in fashion has given me a real appreciation for beautiful pieces. I love when designers have fresh takes on timeless fashions.
What's three essentials you always carry in your handbag?
In my handbag you will always find Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, hand sanitizer spray (germaphobe lol) and rose water facial mist.
If you could take a holiday right now where would you go?
This time of year I can’t wait to be in the snow. I would love to be holidaying in the Swiss Alps right about now. It was my Papa’s favourite place in the world.
What do you love most about Australia?
The Australian coast is truly breathtaking. I love my morning routine walking the coast from Bondi to Bronte and watching the sunrise. The peacefulness is exceptional and have to mention the bonus of reuniting with my loves at Shevoke.
Which Shevoke sunglass is your favourite from the new collection?
My favorite sunnies from the new collection have to be the ‘Damon’. I love the unisex style that goes with any look. The shape is so flattering and they are some of the most comfortable shades I’ve ever had on my face!
