Here at Zamora, we believe that women should feel empowered, confident and absolutely wonderful all the time! One woman that epitomises this is Perth’s Tracey Jewel. She’s a successful author, public speaker, savvy businesses woman, is featured in countless magazines and has also been interviewed by Oprah herself. She’s a bad-ass advocate for speaking up and being your true self. We sat down with Tracey to pick her brain about how to conquer yourself, her favourite shoes, and of course to talk about her new book – Don’t Mess with the Goddess.
Feeling like a true goddess
True goddesses always make sure they are feeling on top of the world by feeding their inner soul with activities they love and doing things to look after themselves. Tracey encourages women to take time out for themselves and focus on self-care, “Every girl knows what it takes to make themselves happy – but we don’t actually do it half the time. Why don’t we actually do what makes us happy, it’s crazy!” says Jewel.
So what does Tracey Jewel do to make herself feel like a goddess?
“Hanging back and chilling at home makes me feel like a goddess actually. Being so busy, juggling Grace (her daughter), working on my marketing business, doing workshops and organising a book launch – when I’m just at home chilling out, reading books or catching up with girlfriends, that’s what makes me feel like a goddess”.
We asked Tracey what her favourite type of shoe is, and pumps seem to be the best bet when you’re a busy woman, “I love pumps, both heels and flats. You can dress them up and down. I can do sparkly for night time and basic leather for day time. Being a mum, I can’t run around like Sarah Jessica Parker all day long in heels, it’s just not going to happen and it’s not realistic”, she laughs.
And her favourite shoe right now? That’s the Maloa from Zamora Shoes! Jewel has also had a sneak peak of our winter collection, and spied a gorgeous mustard, khaki and black suede leather ankle boot which she loves also, so watch out for that one ladies!
Tracey says she owns about 70 pairs of shoes, and used to own a lot more (like many of us we presume)! So she doesn’t let old shoes go to waste either, “Every year I do a wardrobe cull and donate the shoes I don’t wear to the Pat Giles Centre for victims of domestic violence. They especially need work shoes for women to be able to get back into the work force and go for job interviews”, she says.
And a goddess book
So what is Tracey’s book all about?
“Don’t Mess with the Goddess is about standing up for yourself and communicating who are with the world. We all know who we are but we don’t communicate that half the time to people. I hear from my readers all the time about them not getting what they want – it’s time to get the message out!” says Jewel.
