We’re thrilled to introduce our second instalment of (BIG) Kids That Inspire, our article series in which we speak with parents, entrepreneurs and (big) kids who are making a difference and forging their own path and who, like JUNiA, are encouraging kids to be all they can be in the process.
This time we were lucky enough to have a chat with the Fiona Findeis of @haus_of_boys! If you haven’t already do yourself a favour and check out their Instagram for a dose of cuteness and style overload!
Read our full article with Fiona below.
JUNiA: Thanks for taking the time to speak with us, we are big fans of même! But tell us a little about yourself
FIONA: I’m Fiona and I live in country Victoria in Australia. I have 5 boys Zachary who is 20 years old (and lives in Queensland), Benny 9 years old, Harley 7 years old. Jack 5 years old and Noah who is 4!
Tell us a little about the boys?
The boys have such different personalities! Noah is definitely the performer, always making us laugh and is very social and independent. Jack is the quieter achiever and loves his football. Harley loves to be socially active and is very loud!! He loves playing sport but also very into his own imaginary play, even at this age.
Benny is very sporty and is much loved by his peers for being a bit of a class clown though he is also quite reserved until you get to know him
What does a typical day in the life look like?
A typical day is a 6:30am wake up with the boys getting ready for school or kinder! After drop-off I usually still have either Jack or Noah at home with me. We hit some activities, like play group or music class and meet up with friends for a play date. It’s not often we spend a day at home! At 3pm we start the pick-up from kinder and school and most days the older boys have after school sport! At the moment it’s swimming or footy training. In spring and summer, the sports change to cricket, basketball and athletics as well as swimming.
What are you and the boys looking forward to most this summer in Australia?
This summer we’re looking forward to hitting the beach… it’s always all about the beach! The whole family love it and we are all quite happy to spend the whole day there.
And what will they be wearing?
Summer wardrobes are my boys favorite! Shorts, tees, tanks and sunnies! They always get excited to see the new summer releases!
You and the boys have been huge supporters of JUNiA from day one! What do you and the boys love most about the shades?
JUNiA shades are a big fave of ours because they not only look awesome, but they are tough too. Kids aren’t as “nice” to their sunnies as we are, and these have survived many drops, bumps and kicks!! I love the big variety of styles too to suit all kinds of cool kids.
And we have some great news, JUNiA has just launched on The Iconic Kids! What do you see as the best thing about JUNiA being available on The Iconic?
So happy to hear you are now available at The Iconic Kids! It’s such a well-loved destination for Mums looking for the latest trends for their kids so JUNiA shades will fit right in. Great to get such a fab product out there beside some of the best!
Thanks for your time Fiona, we can't wait to see how the boys style their looks this Summer!
