Kirsty Mac

What rocks your boat?

Inspirational people.
And that sounds too corny and ridiculous.. I just love seeing people who are so on their thing its ridiculous!

Stationery. Cute post it notes, sleek roller ball pens, unlined leather notebooks (always unlined – do not like being confined to lines although I have recently embraced dots.. check out nuuna.com for their lovely dotty stationery… (and lovely covers).. Ok you get the picture I am obsessed. A little. In fact, I'm so obsessed I have created my own stationery line, Check it out >

Murder books. (Murder is best said in a Glasgow accent). God love Taggart. This is my escape – it fills my fantasy of being Quincy or Dick van Dyke from Diagnosis Murder.

Beautiful shoes. No need to explain.

Divine conversations. You know when you have conversations that really matter, like, really matter. And they stay with you, they breathe life into an otherwise challenging situation. They are beyond delightful. And that’s why I love to coach.

Books, learning – deep joy.

What annoys you?
Shit Internet reception – not having Wi-Fi does actually send me into some form of anxiety/panic attack. Terrible admission.

The toilet roll being on the wrong way. And if you have to ask what is the wrong way then, well that is, quite frankly, wrong.

3 words to describe yourself

Red headed madness

Who (or what) gives you inspiration first thing in the morning?
There is a possibility of me having some form of addiction to pintrest and instagram – just ever so slightly... And so a wee quote from there. Nothing fills me up more though than having a phone call/virtual date with a very dear friend.

What is something you have given a lot of thought to recently?
Birth. I think there is huge maternal energy that comes through in the creation of things!
We are in such an energetic creative flow at this moment in time with the launch of Leadership Styled, our stationery range and one other that we cannot tell you about just yet. (tease)

Its occupying all areas of my mind right now..

If coffee doesn’t do it for you first thing then what does?
I am not sure I can say it out loud.. But it's what you are thinking…
Ok, ok – a ginger shot – like a natural espresso.
And a PT session and I am good to go.

Your favourite quote

"You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you." Maya Angelou

If you could be anyone for one day, who would it be?

Maya Angelou – to see how her heart feels.

Change one thing about your life, what would it be?

I am super lucky in my life. Currently looking to change where I live so that would be the one thing at the moment – need more space (for the shoes!)


What rocks your boat?

Fashion icons. No matter what shape, size, height or hair colour you are. With an eye for fashion you can be as stylish as the next big thing…

Good food. I LOVE both cooking and eating out, basically anything that involves eating a large amount of deliciousness makes me happy.

You know those times when you are with a friend and something is so unbelievably funny that you have tears streaming down your bright red face and can barely catch a breath. That rocks my boat.

What annoys you?
People who walk slooooowly through a busy street… Move.Faster.

I'm stealing Kirsty's toilet roll issue for this one too, solely to convey how very ANNOYING it actually is to see the endy bit hanging down behind the roll. Please just turn it around guys.

Animal cruelty... I simply just can't get my head around it.

Your favourite Quote?
"A person who is nice to you but is not nice to the waiter, is not a nice person." Dave Barry

Fun friendly foodie

Who (or what) gives you inspiration first thing in the morning?
Ha! Tricky question. When I eventually wake up and accept that the day has begun I tend to call upon my close friends or Kirsty to get the day going. When I know that everyone is ok and happy then I am ready for my day to be great.

What is something you have given a lot of thought to recently?

If coffee doesn’t do it for you first thing then what does?
Loud music in the car. Blasting my favourite song of the moment whist driving to work is enough to get my day off to a great start.

What do you do to relax at the end of a stressful day?
I'm going to be very honest here. A large glass of perfectly chilled Sauvignon Blanc in hand leads to a very relaxed Rachel.

If you could be anyone for one day, who would it be?
Rachel Zoe..I mean we share a name for starters!

Change one thing about your life, what would it be?
As corny as it may sound, I am so so happy with my life, my family, my friends that there is nothing in particular I would want to change. However, having lived in wonderful Australia for 2 years, using up both my visas and now the chance to live there again being made a lot harder, I would change to become half Scottish/half Australian and be allowed the chance to live here or there.


We shall have different contributors as we go forward and would really welcome articles and insights from genuinely brilliant people. Please, don’t be shy and let us know what you would like to see as a part of Leadership styled and what you could contribute – photos, art, words... chocolate!
