5 minutes with Tamila Purvis

5 minutes with Tamila Purvis
What is your favourite work out?
I love Pilates, how subtle but transformative it is.
 
Can you tell us your four essential beauty products?
The Beauty Chef’s Probiotic Skin Refiner - smells like vinegar but it works 
The Beauty Chef’s Beauty Fix Balm - lips, eyes, anything.
Aveda Damage Remedy Conditioner -  tames the mane
Dr Hauschka Quince Day Cream - the most juicy moisturiser ever
 
What are you reading at the moment?
Sick in The Head by Judd Apatow, I’ve found a real appreciation for a comics' view of the world.
 
What do you think every woman should have in her wardrobe?
Jewellery of personal significance
 
Tell me something nobody knows about you?
The name Tamila is actually an Indian boy’s name meaning Sun. 
 
What are the beauty essentials you think every woman should own?
A Beauty Balm and a sleep mask
 
What has been your most memorable holiday to date?
A road trip through Big Sur with my partner, Campbell, last year, I would do that drive over and over, it was magic.
 
What do you do each day that's just for you? 
I would love to say meditate but it doesn’t happen very often these days… my pilates classes are sacred, I go to Fluid Form Pilates Studio in Sydney it's the best there is. 
 
Who or what makes you glow with inspiration?
Spending time with Campbell, especially at our country property - he has an endless amount of ideas and being in nature so often has had the greatest effect on our lives.
 
What are your rules to live by?
The only rule, The Golden Rule - Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. 
 
What work are you most proud of?
Raising my son and building a business with creative integrity.
 
What is your favourite city for beauty treatments?
I love a spa but I’ll opt for massage over a facial every time, Hawaiian Ka Huna or MyoFascial massages with Maggie Hedman are my favourite in Sydney.
