Monday Local Mum Kylene Ky Lovat

How long have you lived in Sydney’s east?

I’ve lived in the Eastern Suburbs for 15 years. The past 13 in Coogee + 2 years in Randwick prior to that.

How many children?

I have 2 boys. Haiden is 12 & Jesse 9.

Favourite Beach?

We love catching up with friends at Coogee & we’ll head over to North Bondi if the boys want a surf.

Favourite park?

Definitely Centennial park. I have so many happy memories of my mums group catch up’s at Centennial Park & the kids love going to the running clubs at Centennial.

Favourite local kid friendly café?

It’s hard to keep my two down so a take away from Chish & Fips at Coogee whilst the kids have a swim or a game of cricket on the grass is always a winner!

Favourite local Day Out Activity?

The coast walk to Bondi followed by a lunch at North Bondi RSL, especially on Sundays when we can try our luck at the seafood raffle.

Favourite local shop?

I’m torn between Coogee Surf Shop & Cargo on Coogee Bay Road!

Ideal day in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs?

A morning run followed by some beach time with the kids & then a long lunch at home with family & friends.

Local areas of the east yet to explore?

My youngest Jesse has just discovered snorkelling after a holiday in Fiji so I think we’ll be spending more time exploring the waters of Gordon’s Bay & Clovelly in the near future.

Work or SAHM?

Self employed at Smashcake.

I started my business back in 2009 when the kids were little & I’ve loved every single second of it. I’ve been fortunate to have met many lovely local families & kids through my work which I feel very fortunate for. I believe I have the best job in the world!

Motherly advice?

LOVE them until you burst!
