Mums Day Out with Sigourney Cantelo

Ex-Vogue Australia Beauty and Health Director and Founder of website Beauticate, Sigourney Cantelo is one of those mums who always manages to look pulled together.  She might not have had a full night’s sleep, and she might be worried about fussy eaters like the rest of us, but this is a lady who knows how to achieve a perfect winged eyeliner and has a brain that is a rolodex of the best spas all around the world.  She is also (and most importantly) mum to beautiful Max and Luella (aka Lulu).

What’s your favourite restaurant to go for a special occasion with the kids? 

The Boathouse at Balmoral, Burnt Orange or The Buena in Mosman are all local favourites for a yummy meal where the kidlets feel welcome.

What’s your favourite local cafe?

Sprout in Naremburn is a great wholefoods cafe with an enclosed yard at the back where little tots can roam free.  The Greens in North Sydney is our other local – great on weekends with fun activities for children.

And what’s that one special spot you go for a little ‘me time’?

What’s that!?! Ha! Um, a massage is the ultimate. Nothing beats a really indulgent afternoon at a day spa – I’ll either bliss out at the Park Hyatt Day Spa or The Spa at The Darling.

The best thing about being a mum is:

The intensely fierce, unconditional love you have for your child, it’s the purest and most perfect emotion and motivation in the world. It keeps you going when you think you can go no more.

The hardest thing about being a mum is:

In the early days the sleep deprivation is torture and when they reach toddlerhood the tantrums and working out how to discipline them is a challenge. Every age and stage presents different hurdles!
