2 jobs. 4 pairs of white sneakers on rotation.
1 new scent obsession.

Beck Wadworth is mad for monochrome and obsessed with order. A day job in fashion for Sydney label Bec & Bridge has honed her aesthetic, her training as a graphic designer has sharpened her eye, and years of dance training has influenced her need for structure and discipline. Three years ago she started her own stationery and lifestyle brand, An Organised Life in her spare time, working nights and weekends out of one room in the teeny three-room apartment she shares with her boyfriend. A MECCA #skinfluencer, we spent the afternoon with Beck in the hope that we’d glean some tips from her highly ordered approach to life, while peeking into her tightly edited beauty cabinet. Organised is as organised does.

ON HER EX-DANCER DISCIPLINE:

"I’ve always been very disciplined and committed, right back to my boarding school and uni days. I’m definitely one of those nerdy people who gets a project done or meets a deadline a couple of days in advance. I think it’s my graphic design background but also having done 14 years of ballet which taught me a lot about discipline, dedication, and commitment. I’m not scared to put in the hard work and the long hours, especially when it comes to my business. I work til midnight most nights and also on weekends but I love it."

"14 years of ballet taught me a lot about discipline, dedication, and commitment."

"My days spent working at home on my business have to be very well planned and I have a massive daily To-Do list that I write in my diary to help structure my day. I also need to feel polished when I’m working from home - whether I have meetings or not - so I get dressed and do my hair and makeup, grab a coffee, and then get into the day."

ON HER OBSESSION WITH ORDER:

"I’m so ordered across every part of my life and definitely believe in ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’. Even my handbag is super organised with all I need for the day in different compartments; I’m that person who, if you ask for a plaster/hair tie/umbrella/dry shampoo, I have it in my bag! My wardrobe—which is almost exclusively black and white—really only holds things I wear regularly and anything I haven’t worn in a while I either donate to charity or sell. My beauty cabinet is arranged in the actual order that I use my products. I’m really space challenged here so it just has to work that way. In my ideal world, I would have storage compartments for everything in my home; right now that’s not doable in our little apartment but hopefully one day – life goals!"

ON WHY SHE NO LONGER WEARS A RED LIP:

"When I lived in Auckland in my early 20s, I’d always wear red lipstick when I was going out but not since moving to Bondi. I just don’t feel comfortable; I never see anyone around here wearing a red lip! Now my signature look is darker eyes in brown tones and a neutral lip shade. I’ve definitely had to adjust my style in general since we’ve been living in Bondi; I never used to wear sneakers and now I wear them with everything to keep my look chic and understated rather than being too dressy."

ON TRYING NEW THINGS:

"I’m definitely not an impulse shopper; I’m very considered about anything I buy. When it comes to beauty, I like to keep it pretty streamlined but I do try to be open minded about trying new things. The main thing I struggle with is breakouts – so I tend to be cautious about new products and like to do my research on how they will affect my skin. I’d never really been into oils and serums but I just started using the Verso Super Facial Oil and the Sunday Riley Luna Oil over the last few months and now I can’t not use them! I’ve also just started using the Verso Face and Reviving Eye Masks as a treat as I just don’t have time for facials. They’re great before and after a flight or if I’m doing a shoot. Oh and I’ve just become obsessed with Le Labo Santal 33; I don’t have the fragrance yet but I just love the scented candle."
