- What was your first job?
We grew up in a farming/market gardening community and lived on a lifestyle block. I worked on our own farm (probably from the time I could walk) and neighbouring farms.... picking peas, cutting lettuces, planting seeds off the back of a tractor, feeding the farm animals. My first off the farm job was my local paper round. I had about 120 circulars to deliver and it took about 2 hours to bike around our suburb as all the houses were so spaced out. I loved rainy days as it meant someone had to drive me and it was much quicker!
- What is your biggest fear?
Biggest fear is losing someone close to me. It's something I worry far too much about.
- If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Ohhhh probably roast chicken with all the trimmings, I love a good roast!
- Have you ever had a nickname? What is it?
My friends and family call me Meg/ Megs. My Dad only ever calls me Miggs (I don't know why haha) but often I don't answer to Meagan.
- What's your favorite zoo animal?
I loveee Giraffes and Pandas. Those lashes and long legs on a giraffe are what I dream for haha.....and pandas just look cute and cuddly!!!
- Are you a clean or messy person?
Extremely clean!!! I never go to bed with a messy house. Having children has made me have to relax a little as they are just constant wee hurricanes.....but yes all the toys have their own space!
- What's the most unusual thing you've ever eaten?
A worm out of the tequila... is that unusual haha?? .....a lambs tail or a cockroach?? Lets just say these are all while being intoxicated and young!
- What's your favourite ruby & rain piece you've ever designed?
Ohhh that’s a tough one, I have so many different favourite pieces but I would have to say the Cherry Blossom Dress. It’s timeless, versatile, easy wearing and comfy….what more could you ask for in a dress?
- What motivates you most?
My biggest motivation in life is you have to do what makes you happy. Don’t waste your time on something that doesn't make you happy. I am super goal driven and always set myself long and short term goals- whether that's personally or professionally. This helps me to measure my own success (remember everyone else’s success is different). I have a young family so a big factor for me is balance and creating a steady but healthy work/ homelife. When my children grow up I want them to be proud of me and all that we have achieved together as a family.
- What is your favorite thing about your career?
So many things I love…..I love that i get to work with my bestie every day, I love fashion so being able to play with fabrics, designs and everything else in between is a gals dream. I love the wee R+R community we have formed, giving people confidence in the clothing they choose to wear, the freedom it gives my family as I have the ability to work from home with my 2 little boys. The list honesty goes on!!!
Hopefully you've learnt a little something extra about Meagan and if you have any other questions leave us a comment and we might have to do a part two!
