Friday Five With Alicia Parsons from Akimbo


Yay! Welcome to Friday. To celebrate the awesomeness that is the last day before the weekend, lets ask the lovely Alicia Parsons from Akimbo some questions for this week’s Friday Five With…

What was the last movie that you watched?

Oh no this is really tragic! I was on holiday in Sydney a couple of weeks ago with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. I ended up being sick so instead of going out for our fancy dinner we sat on the hotel bed watching The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe with me clutching a bucket.

What’s your favourite season?

You can’t beat that feeling of the first warm days of spring after a long winter and seeing the cherry blossoms come out always puts a smile on my face. Plus, you can wear cute clothes.

Name one artist that you admire.

There are so many so I’m going to pick the first that came to mind. I adore everything by Amy Butler – her patterns make anything look good. I admire how she has taken a specific creative skill and turned it into a successful lifestyle brand..

Do you have a treasured possession?

My photo albums. Okay so I’m embarrassingly far behind, but I feel like they contain my whole life and everything that I hold dear.

Out of all the pieces you’ve created, what’s your favourite?

Hands down it would be the Oberon collection. It was my first timber invitation and it has been a big hit. No matter how many brides order it, I never get sick of the working with that design.
