Meet Ina Odak. It is by no surpirse that her hero is currently, Wonder Woman. She's a Wonder Woman herself - mother to little Luka and also the creative director, editior and girl boss behind the blog ' Sneakers and Soul' and the founder of the social media and PR agency 'The Kindred List'. At the end of a busy today you could well find Ina, winding down and sipping away on a well deserved Hendricks Gin with cucumber and tonic.
You’re Mum to?
If you could bottle up one thing about your little boy, what would it be?
His attitude (I wonder where he gets it from, haha!). He’s opinionated, independent, determined yet kind.
Is motherhood what you envisioned it to be?
No, it’s WAY, WAY better.
What is the funniest thing Luka has said?
He’s at that super hilarious age where he just comes out with totally random things. Like he’s wake up in the morning and the first thing he says is “look it’s sunny outside” followed by “I farted in my nappy”, LOL.
You are the creative director and editor and girl boss behind ‘Sneakers + Soul’ and Founder of ‘The Kindred List’. Can you tell us what these are all about?
Sneakers + Soul is a lifestyle blog for the modern mama. We talk about all things style - for you, mini, home, travel, interview brands, babes and makers that inspire us, share personal experiences of life and motherhood and have recently launched a wellness initiative called #projectme.
The Kindred List is a boutique strategy, social media and PR agency. It combines my corporate experience and social media skill sets to enable brands and small-medium businesses to grow.
How do you juggle work life and mum life?
Isn’t that the 64 million dollar question? I actually just wrote a blog post about this so you’ll have to read it. Essentially, I subscribe to Randi Zuckerberg’s concept of the entrepreneur's dilemma:Maintaining friendships. Building a great company. Spending time w/family. Staying fit. Getting sleep. Pick 3. I believe that we, as women and mothers, can do it all, but not all at the same time.
Who is your hero?
As of Sunday, Wonder Woman. Without question.
It is 5pm (somewhere)… what’s your drink of choice?
5pm is early for me so probably my last coffee for the day. But I get where you’re heading with this so ideally, a Hendricks Gin with cucumber and tonic.
If you could teleport anywhere for 24hours, where would you go?
Hvar, Croatia and sit on one of the day beds staring into the ocean with a great book, followed by a swim, a wine and a truffle pasta.
What is your motto?
If you want something, ask for it.
Your go to coffee spot in Melbourne?
That’s a hard one, so many good spots - some of my fave local spots at MOB Camberwell, 30 Mill Espresso and Horace Street.
What’s your idea of a perfect day?
Beach house, coffee, swims, hike/walk along back beach, rest, mags, fresh calamari that Dad has caught on the BBQ with wine sitting outside on the deck in the sea breeze. Then a great movie or good book.
Describe yourself as a mum in three words…
Relaxed, independent and fierce.
