A mo­ment of calm

Edi­tor of Sim­ply You and mum to Noa, age three, Naomi Larkin knows the im­por­tance of a peace­ful pause dur­ing a busy day

Simply You - - In Association With/Bell Tea -

My work­ing day is a com­bi­na­tion of meet­ings, trou­bleshoot­ing is­sues, con­cep­tu­al­is­ing ideas, writ­ing and work­ing to dead­lines. There’s also bal­anc­ing my work and home life – my day in­cludes jug­gling child care, cook­ing and try­ing to t in some ex­er­cise where I can.

I started in jour­nal­ism in the 90s. I was in news­pa­pers, news agency, and did a brief stint in ra­dio. Since 2001

I’ve been a mag­a­zine edi­tor, in Sin­ga­pore, South Africa and most re­cently New Zealand. I’ve been the edi­tor of

Sim­ply You since late 2015; which in­cludes the Style, Liv­ing and Body & Beauty is­sues. All of this keeps me busy.

My work and home style is about choos­ing clothes that suit my body shape and keep­ing it mixed – with de­signer, vin­tage, sec­ond-hand and chain-store buys. I used to wear a lot of black but liv­ing over­seas and trav­el­ling, I now nd colour is a lot more in­ter­est­ing and ex­cit­ing.

For Naomi Larkin, her day is not com­plete with­out a cup of Bell White Tea Pure, per­fume and an out­fit that suits her per­sonal style
