Happy Scorpio Season! To celebrate the launch of our Rising Moon Collection, we've asked one of our favourite style-swoony Scorpios a few questions about her intriguing Zodiac Sign and more. Step this way to learn a little more about creative & Mum-boss Sarah Shabacon....
You know them best! Sum a Scorpio up in 5 of your own words:
Loyal, Passionate, Intense, Deep, Protective
What traits from being a Scorpio do you think you align most true with?
Loyalty and Intensity for sure
We know we all have them (right!?)…. What do you think is your most annoying ‘Scorpian’ trait?
Definitely the intensity! It's usually a benefit but it's also annoying, especially when my husband is not on the same wavelength as me about something I find wildly important.
Do you think there is another Zodiac Sign that you get along with the most? I’m pretty sure 50% of my friends are Saggi’s!
Aquarius and other Scorpios, both my boys are Aquarius and there is constant synergy between us and we are like an extension of one another without needing to say anything.
Any thoughts on your partner's Zodiac sign and how that helps you understand him? Believer or non?
He is a cancer and hasn’t shown much interest in Zodiac signs but I still have hope!
Do you find yourself effected by the cycles of the moon? How?
Incredibly, but it wasn’t until recently that I began to realize that when my state of mind is totally off balance, it always seems to be the moon.
We often find ourselves swooning over your dreamy insta feed , your endless incredible outfits & accessories. How would you describe your style?
Ohhhh good question, off the top of my head I would say I dress for minimal impact, I like to come and go without standing out, perhaps an ode to my introverted personality…
And of course we are huge fans of your feed & beautiful brand. Where do you find your inspiration from?
Thank you!! I’m endlessly inspired by history, the history of not only fashion but also the history of fashion in its relation to lifestyle and practicality throughout the last 100 years. As we evolve our fashion evolves and we’re at a point in time where we can truly wear anything, from any era and there is a market for it. It’s beautiful and I love being a part of it.
Hardest thing about Mom-ing and Girl-Bossing it?
Accepting that it will never be a perfect balance and that there will always be something needing my attention and that not everyone will understand that. I will never be able to be everything to everyone so when a customer is disappointed I took too long to respond, as hard as it is to not feel upset that they think I’m inconsiderate, I remember that my sons were not disappointed that I unplugged and spent time with them. I roll with the waves of it all and do my best.
And lastly, what do you hope the stars have in store for us for 2021?
All the hope in the world!! I want to see equality. I want BIPOC to have their voices heard, not only heard but listened to and for proper change to move the world forward into a brighter future where we care for the environment like our lives depend on it because our lives depend on it. I have hope the stars will align and help get humanity back on track to do some really, really wondrous things.

From your strawberries purchased in their plastic punnets to your Mum trying to wrap up a new Vacuum Cleaner... It’s been a life-long mission of mine to keep an eye out for new and innovative ways to wrap up gifts that don’t require the purchase of unnecessary wrapping paper for that 1 minute of joy. Now it's time to share these 6 great plastic free packaging ideas with you...
