What is your name?

Sibel Alan-Jones

Tell us a bit about yourself…

I’m 28 years old and live in Sunny Brisbane. I have been with the love of my life Cameron for 11 years and married for almost three. We have a beautiful daughter Amelia-Jones who is 14 months old and the life of our life. I am of Turkish heritage while my husband is Australian (or so we think, we recently participated in an Ancestry DNA Test to trace back our origins so this might change). I work in a law firm in Brisbane city and during my spare time I’m always with my little bebe.

What is the name of your blog?

Sibel Alan-Jones

How did you get into blogging and what inspired you to start up your own blog Sibel Alan Jones?

I first started blogging when my daughter was born – I was inspired to write about journey as a mother and to share my stories with friends. It was a great outlet for me personally as you can only share so much on social media such as Instagram and Facebook.

Tell us a bit more about what your social media/ blogs include…

You can find photos of my daughter, my outfits, things I’m loving and of course some interior inspo.

Do you have any future plans for your blog in the next few years that we can look forward to?

Since I started back at work full time my blog has definitely taken a back seat. It’s extremely hard to juggle mum life and work life let alone writing and sharing my experiences through my blog. I want to always make sure my content is relevant to what I’m doing and is an accurate representation of what I have experienced as a mother so far.

What are some affordable family activities that you recommend for summer?

The Beach!! You cannot go wrong…Amelia loves the water!
The Park – we usually take a little picnic with us and run around with Millie – it might get a little hot during Summer so I would recommend going late afternoon.


Your baby show looked amazing last year! For our new mums to be, what are three elements/ things that you recommend for a memorable baby shower?

Ohhh thank you!! Oh gosh there's so many things I could recommend!! Firstly, and this might be the European coming out in me, the food! Make sure you have plenty of food and drinks for you and your guests to munch on while you talk about the upcoming birth of your little one. Secondly, have a photographer or assign one of your friends or family to take photos during the day so you don’t miss anything and have something to look back on. Lastly, I’m not a big baby shower game player – I have a baby and it still bores me. I do however, highly recommend guessing games or games that your guests can play in their own time, while they are socialising and prizes handed out once everyone has participated.

You have an exquisite sense of interior style – what are 3 pieces of décor that can make a house look chic?

Thank you so much! I absolutely love big statement mirrors!! They can really capture the light and make a room appear much larger in size. A fabulous dining table and chairs – this is where you will spend most of your time, eating and entertaining so putting in the effort to make this space look beautiful will definitely pay off. Lastly, lighting décor can really spruce up a room!
