Radio host, actress and content creator, Taryn Mamo Cefai, has been busy turning her new house into a home over the past few months. Today, she’s sitting down with us to chat about all her favourite We Are Not A Shop pieces. Read on to discover what she selected from our online store.
Taryn, we’re so glad you could join us. Could you tell us what inspired your selection of pieces today?
Thank you for having me. I chose things that represented different sides of my personality. To start things off, I went with these two mugs. This one because it has a sheep on it (and I love sheep), and the other one purely because it made me laugh. I also collect mugs on my travels, so they’ll fit right in with the rest of my collection.
These gold hoops are gorgeous, too. I’m obsessed – I don’t think I’ve ever come across a pair of hoops I didn’t like…
Then, I can really picture these three cushions in my new living room. I chose this one because it’s a fun representation of Malta (I’m Maltese and proud!). Then, this one because it’s the perfect pop of colour to brighten up my interior. And finally, I picked this zebra cushion because it will look great with the other African touches I’m planning to incorporate into my living area. The cushions all complement each other nicely, too, so I’m looking forward to seeing them together.
I also selected this travel book because I am quite the avid traveller – you can never travel enough, if you ask me. It’s my therapy; where I let loose, meet new people, and experience new things. More importantly, it helps me keep everything in perspective.
Lastly, this necklace is such a unique collectors’ item, I couldn’t resist.
Great picks, Taryn. Did you pick any of them with someone specific in mind?
I guess I picked out this mug with all my single friends in mind…
Now, we know this is a tough question, but do you have a favourite item?
That is a tough one! It’s a tie between the mug and the travel book. I drink tea about eight times a day, so the mug will definitely come in handy. While the book is something I can see myself flicking through fairly often. I’ll have to go with both, don’t make me choose one!
How would you describe We Are Not A Shop to someone who doesn’t know about it?
An online store with a difference.
Now, what do you like about the We Are Not A Shop concept?
It’s a fantastic concept. If you’re going to buy a gift for someone this Christmas, you might as well donate to a worthy cause at the same time! It’s a great thing that We Are Not a Shop are doing.
Finally, would you recommend We Are Not A Shop to a friend?
