What does your daily routine look like, mama? Tell us, we want to know!
Looking in from the outside, Australian mama Steph Adams seems to lead a pretty glamorous life – as the editor of luxury digital lifestyle magazine LAQUA, she jets all over the world interviewing celebrities and fashion heavyweights (in a former life she’s also worked for the likes of Net-a-Porter, British Vogue, ELLE and Harper’s Bazaar). In addition, with her fellow writer Samantha Brett, she’s co-authored four books so far (with the fifth currently in the works). Their newest, The Juggle, will hit the shelves in April, and profiles high-profile mothers with kickass careers in business, politics, fashion and more who are also juggling families, relationships, and motherhood. Sounds right up our alley!
Steph’s own juggle involves raising her two sons, Bailey (3) and Josh (1). Whether working from her home on Sentosa, fitting in a gym session with kiddos in tow, or jetting off to a client meeting, she takes us through a day in her always interesting life!

My day starts out being jumped on at 5.30am or otherwise woken up by one of these two. I then make coffee and will be interviewing various celebrities all over the world either via email or phone for our different books. We have just finished The Juggle and are currently working on book #5.
It’s really important to have that quality time with your family if you can fit it in. Along the way, we take our 3-year-old to preschool.
I’ll start work at different times throughout the day since I’m on call with offices all around the world. I could be taking phone calls at 4am, or be working through the night and on weekends. It is great because I’m able to work around the kids. Sometimes it doesn’t always go to plan, though!
I work around the clock and am often on overseas calls throughout the night. My work varies — sometimes I’m travelling, sometimes I’m at home working or running from meetings to events. If the baby wakes, I try to steal a cuddle before I return to work (this is possibly one of the things I enjoy most about working from home).
I’ll usually meet up with clients in the city at various cafes. I don’t find it hard to get around from Sentosa.
Being healthy and working out is really important. If I have to sneak in an afternoon weight session at the gym with the kids in tow, I will. Sometimes I work out at Core Collective in the city and I take Bootcamps with Bodies By Lawrence.
I’m currently at work on new ideas for our next book with my co-author Samantha Brett. Our next book is going to be very exciting!
To wind down I’ll watch Netflix, play with the kids, read a book on health, or check out new recipes. Soon enough I’ll be back on another call!
