Our store staff work extra hard this time of year bringing the cheer to your Obus visit. We spent a few minutes with these lovely ladies to find out what they are rockin' and loving this Christmas!
. . . . . . .
Alter ego: I take photos, sew, craft and experiment baking vegan treats!
Fave festive tune: It’s gotta be something Michael Buble right?
Fave Xmas tradition: Probably Christmas crackers.. I think sitting around the dinner table, awkwardly sat next to a relative you perhaps don’t know that well, a Christmas cracker always helps to break the ice and everyone has a laugh!
Secret skill: Embroidery! I haven’t done much, but I seem to have a knack for it.
Alter ego: Painter... Well, thinking about painting. Next year will be the year of exhibiting!!
Favourite festive tune: Little Drummer Boy by Boney M. (My mum would play their Christmas album every Christmas, it would drive my brothers and I crazy... Now I play it every year and I totally love it!! So does my daughter.)
Favourite xmas tradition: Having to come up with meaningful gifts that have a cash limit. I love it because it forces you to be creative and thoughtful...
Secret skill: I asked my daughter and she said "You're amazing and cool... ;). And I make a mean green curry !
Alter ego: When I'm not at Obus I'm a full time student chipping away at a Bachelors degree in Youth Work, striving to do better at keeping my house plants alive and being a cat mum to my baby Rosco.
Favourite festive tune: All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey (of course)
Favourite xmas tradition: Watching Christmas movies such as Scrooged and Love Actually with my partner and/or housemates, eating pink zooper doopers and taking my niece, Isabella to see the Christmas lights up around my house in Princes Hill.
Secret skill: People always underestimate me in a game of Scrabble
Alter ego: When I'm not at Obus. I'm spending a little too much on going out for lunch and dinner and discovering new places to shop and have a wine! Still a newbie to Melbourne :)
Fave festive tune: I'm gonna have to be twins with Nikki and say All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey - it is such a good tune and also reminds me of that scene from Love Actually!
Fave christmas tradition: I always have brunch with my parents and open presents together in pajamas! Also, always having an Xmas arvo nap.
Secret skill: I can do a very clumsy back flip!
