Many of you will recognise Anne from her Facebook LB Resellers Group which she started after becoming an LB customer back in 2013. Annie wanted to create a space "to share our love for the LB brand" and continues to run this page with the beautiful Gabrielle Lawrence (another of our incredible customers).
Fast forward to 2020 and we had the absolute pleasure of catching up with our beautiful friend Annie again during our recent photoshoot with some other fabulous ladies, which turned out to be a great day.
Annie is a size 16 & 180cm tall
Where did you grow up and where do you live now?
I grew up on the north side of Brisbane - Chermside.
I moved to the south side when I went to Uni and then to Mackay. After a few years there, I moved back to Brisbane and eventually to Redcliffe with a 12-month stay in Germany in between.
I currently live in Redcliffe.
What was your dream job growing up and is that what you ended up doing?
I always wanted to be an air hostess or a teacher.
I am a teacher now and love to travel as much as I can so I guess I get to be in the air without having to work! I have had lots of opportunities to travel in my teaching role as well!
What is one of your most defining moments in life?
Having my own child was pretty special but I must say being present at the birth of my grandson was pretty special.
After a long night of labour baby Adam was born in the early morning and I went home to sleep and leave the parents bask in the joy of their newborn.
I remember falling onto my bed and crying my eyes out - I still have the mascara stain on my pillowcase - that was pretty special to be asked to be there.
What are three of your favourite things to do?
I love to travel and experience new countries. I love going to the movies and live theater and I love to hang out with my family and friends especially my 6 year old grandson.
Your favourite aspect of being in the Leina Broughton Conversations Group
My favourite aspect is about the friendships I have developed and the close bonds I have with. I thought making new friends was not for this 60 year old but I am pretty lucky to have found some very special ladies to love and support me and who I can love and support in the same way!
Your “go-to” LB piece?
That's difficult to choose just one but I guess the Marnie Rascal or the Robin in pink petal
What is your favourite quote?
You see things as they are and ask why, I dream things that never were and ask why not? (JFK)
If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?

It’s 2020 – what are you choosing to leave behind and what will you be taking forward into 2020, your new year.
I'd like to be able to think of something really profound but really I'm just leaving some rather tough times at work behind and I taking with me into 2020 the love and support of my family and friends.
