Charmaine Chung is one half of the two sisters who dreamed up Somewhere Between. Born and bred in Canberra, Australia, she spent her twenties living in Sydney, where she started in fashion retail and ended up in the music industry working for a major record label. She gave up her glam lifestyle to get married and move to South East Asia, where she worked for a NGO in Vientiane and gave birth to her first-born in Bangkok. With a love of great design and an insatiable addiction to chocolate, she has since settled back in Canberra with her husband and four children (aged two to 12 years). Her parenting goal is to raise kind and resilient children.

Mignon Archer is the other half of the Somewhere Between sisters. She is a working mother of four children ranging from six months to 14 years. Mignon is passionate about travelling the world with her family and just recently returned from three and a half years living in South East Asia. She hopes to raise kind, generous, tolerant children with a keen sense of adventure. In her spare time she researches all things parenting, particularly issues facing children today, including managing social media, mental illness and finding balance in busy lives.

Anna Critchley is a stylist with a passion for great retail, hospitality venues and children’s fashion. She is a wife and mother of two girls, aged 14 and 11 years. Anna is constantly planning family getaways. Scouring social media, websites and blogs for new and out of the ordinary places to stay, eat and of course, shop… A passion for capturing memories, Anna is rarely seen without a camera in her hand. You can follow Anna on Facebook and Instagram as well as her blog, Anna Critchley Stylist.

Rachel Doherty is the founder of Tweens2teen. She lives in Brisbane, smack-bang in the middle of the east coast of Australia. She’s a social worker, teacher, and mother of three terrific teenagers. Married for 20 years to her husband Pete, the highlights of her life involve these four amazing people, whether it’s sharing a meal or gathering around a noisy game of Ticket to Ride, or heading off on an adventure to explore a corner of the world together. In her spare time she trains youth workers and does a lot of washing and cooking.

Nicole Langford developed a passion for fashion after working in the industry for over seven years. After leaving the city life to travel, she found herself falling in love with a farmer with whom she married and had three beautiful children. When she is not working on their farm and caring for their children, she dabbles in photography: a hobby that has found her taking photos of her children for brands featured on Instagram. Being so far from city life and the social scene she was once accustomed to, she has now started writing about motherhood and everyday life as a way to tell her story. Her love for all things bohemian was where her page @kombilife was born; you can follow Nicole on Instagram or over on her blog where she Brings Fashion to the Farm.

Rachel is a mother of two; one too-cool tween and one wee babe (who’s yet to become too cool for his mum’s constant singing and dancing around the home…it’s only a matter of time). She’s the owner and chief writer at Frankly Write, and lives and breathes copywriting and marketing. She’s a self-proclaimed nerd, lover of Married At First Sight, enjoys a touch of yoga, a good book and cooking for the family (singing and dancing in the kitchen obviously included). Rachel has been writing creatively all her life and the journey of motherhood is no exception – from personal blogs to poetry, documenting life through words is part of her DNA. A teacher in a past life, Rachel has found that mothering a tween calls on all of her teaching skills to navigate some days. However, there is a deep new understanding and connection that flourishes between mother and daughter in this new phase, and though she confesses she doesn’t get it right every day, she’s happily learning as she goes, and getting to know the beautiful daughter she’s raising.

Jenny Tiffen is a mum to four healthy kids and one chubby pug. She dates her husband every Wednesday {and blogs about it over at Love Wednesday}. She honestly believes that she might lose her mind {or her hubby!} if she didn’t make time for her marriage in the midst of ALL the parenting. Family life can get hectic. Jenny is cake-eating-gym-junkie who is Canberra born and bred. She spends 25% of her time on the Gold Coast in their holiday-house because travelling anywhere else with kids sucks. No matter where she is, you can find her on Instagram because taking pictures makes her happy.

Bernadette Cording is a mother of two absolutely beautiful young ladies, balancing full-time work as a marketing professional with multiple side hustles as a freelance makeup artist and dance mentor. With life throwing its many usual challenges and being busy off her feet, she always finds room for doing things smarter or better by trying and learning new things that keep her and her family motivated to always make kind and thoughtful choices. She admits to ‘sucking at life sometimes’ but believes it’s important for her impressionable tween/teen to have a healthy awareness of that reality and see a balanced perspective. She aims to inspire and guide them to be the best with all the emotions, behaviours and feelings that come with growing up into happy individuals, backing them all the way.
