Meet TW’s Founder
Meet TW’s Founder, Simone Sant-Ghuran
I CAN’T START MY DAY UNTIL:
I’ve had a cup of black coffee in my special teacup.
YOU’LL NEVER SEE ME WITHOUT:
A mini notepad in my purse for writing down ideas and thoughts.
ON MY BOOKSHELF:
I have an entire wall of books…but I love anything by Jane Austen, Jhumpa Lahiri and Frank McCourt
PERSONAL STYLE :
Feminine meets modern.
When I was a kid I wanted to be:
ON MY BUCKET LIST:
Trips to Greece and India.
“NIGHT OUT” OR “EVENING IN”:
Definitely “night out”….heaven knows all I would do with an “evening in” is to sleep. I love my bed.
Art, vintage jewelry and items from Trinidad and Tobago’s fashion & accessory designers.
Massages, champagne and good perfume
Fleetwood Mac, U2, Sting, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Lana del Ray, ole school dub and some sappy 1980’s music for good measure!
TRINI FOODS I CRAVE:
Kachories with green mango chutney, curried crab and dumplings and homemade ginger beer.
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT:
My car and my posture-pedic pillow
Vitamins, Geranium Body Oil and Ole Henriksen skincare
Right at the corner of where you’re most comfortable and where you’re not.
BEST PART OF MY JOB:
I like that I get to use my “business” brain and my “creative brain” equally. I also get to surround myself with beauty all the time – whether it’s beautiful souls or beautiful work. I get to appreciate the talent of designers, artisans, “creatives” and even D.I.Y brides and to distill and curate those ideas and products for our website and magazine.
CAREER ADVICE I WISH I HAD 5 YEARS AGO:
Focus on your own goals, nobody knows what’s right for you except you.
ABOVE ALL ELSE:
Stay true to yourself. Trust your instincts.
