meet sandra duff, allie's mum, pure balanxed's biggest fan and supporter, our biggest inspiration. 

What a better time than Mother's day to interview Allie's mum for our #purebalanxedcommunity feature. You may recognize the name Sandra with our "Sandy Kaye" tee which we released in December 2018, when our business went live. We started the brand with two tees, the Sandy Kaye and the Billy tee named after Allie's parents who are her biggest rocks and inspiration. Without them, Pure Balanxed wouldn't be the brand you've come to know and love today. Sandra helps Allie with the designs, always offers feedback, lives in her Pure Balanxed, and speaks about it to everyone any chance she gets. She truly is our biggest cheerleader. 

What brings you comfort when facing the unknowns in life?

Knowing that my family is always there for me.  

What would you tell your younger self?

Life goes by quicker than you think, don't put things off, and have no regrets. 

What does balance look like for you?

A good mixture of work, spending time outside, relaxing at home, being with my family, and spending time on my own. Just a mixture of doing what I have to do and things that I want to do! 


What's the best part about being a Mother?

Watching my children grow through all different stages of life and sharing their downs, their achievements, and being there to support them along the way. As well as getting to spend time with them and just being part of their lives. 

Your best piece of advice?

Do what makes you happy!!!! 

Take every experience with you as you go and learn from it. 

What/who is your biggest inspiration?

Right now my daughters are. I find that they show strength in times of adversity. They set their mind to what they really want to achieve. They don't let much get in their way!

What does your perfect (pure) morning look like?

My perfect morning includes a warm sunny Saturday coffee date with my husband with a walk around the lake before I begin work. 


How have our affirmation tags helped you?

I have watched the journey of pb from the beginning so when I am wearing the clothing I feel connected, inspired, and proud. It's a physical representation of what my beautiful daughter has been through and achieved. 


What's your favourite way to wear Pure Balanxed?

Relaxing in my joggers with a comfy tee/crew after a long workday.
