5 minutes with Candice Rose O’Rourke

5 minutes with Candice Rose O’Rourke

Anything you take, or do, religiously every day?

Coffee! 

Can take only 5 things from your home to a deserted island.

My dog Daisy for companionship, DEIJI bed linen for a touch of deserted island luxury, water – obvious reasons, food – again, obviously – and finally, a phone to call someone to get me out of there. 

Favorite snack?

Beanfields Bean and Rice Chips Nacho flavor – seriously delicious.

Star sign:

Scorpio

Place of birth:

Port Macquarie NSW Australia

Beach essentials:

Sunday Supply Co. umbrella, ZZ Mini swimsuits for my two kids Zimmy and Val, Invisible Zinc and a ZZ onepiece. 

When was the last time you had tan lines?

Year round.

Best beauty advice you’ve been given?

A makeup artist got me onto Giorgio Armani Liquid silk foundation which has bettered my world.

Your beauty advice? 

My advice would be to embrace the aging process, as it is a privilege that not all of us are lucky enough to experience. 

Beauty products you cant live without?

Giorgio Armani foundation, The Base LB Cream, Dr Hauschka Melissa Day Cream and Model Co mascara.

Last / current book?

Girlboss

Top 3 films, different genres?

I love documentaries and a hearty romance film. But to be real, I am a Netflix kind of girl. The Sinner is my current obsession. Jessica Biel is insane.

Music choice?

I tend to touch back on music that shaped my early 20’s – SADE, John Mayer, Ben Harper, george, The Presets, Flight Facilities. I also love RUFUS.

Women you most admire?

I admire my sister and business partner Karla for her creativity and sense of direction in all aspects of her life. I also admire Zulu & Zephyr’s GM Mel for her hard work, intelligence and style – I am lucky to work beside these women daily. 

Best gift received?

My husband has a knack for buying great jewelry and shoes for me – I don't know how he does it but he always impresses.

Best gift given?

My children, Zimmy and Val!

What qualities in women inspire you?

I love meeting women who can build you up, offer encouragement and kindness. 

I look for inspiration in?

Interiors and furniture. My home really is my sanctuary -  so I invest in pieces I really love.  

Secretly addicted to?

Work.

Most people don’t know that I ….

Play guitar and sing and that I once busked my way through Europe.

3 words to describe your work?

Honest, collaborative and creative.

Work you are most proud of?

Each collection of Zulu & Zephyr is like serving up a piece of our life – but I personally love when we get behind the camera and shoot the campaign. It is challenging, fun and super spontaneous.
