People flock to Tansy like a moth to a flame. Her approachable demeanor and sincere disposition make her a favourite in any social or familiar situation. Add to that, her style is second to none, where this former public relations executive knows how to stand out in a crowd without compromising her individuality.

A mother of two, Tansy retired from fulltime fashion PR, and is now a dedicated member of the PTA of her children’s school. On occasion she can also be found working on PR projects for close friends and also helping with charities.

This busy Glamamama finds time for school, friends, fashion and family!

Join her on a DAY IN THE LIFE OF TANSY LAU TOM

I don’t send my kids to school every day but am usually out the door bright and early with them if I have PTA related meetings or anything to do with school.

Today I went on a site visit  to an organic farm in Fanling to do site checking for the PTA outing.  (I’m helping to organise a 1000 person visit  for the school.)

After the site visit I zipped back to Hong Kong side  for a much needed haircut at Triple 8 salon with my stylist Angus.

Once my hair was primped  I headed back to Kowloon to my dear friend Johanna Ho’s studio, for a photoshoot for LUXUP.com Who would have guessed I could transform from a site visiting member of the PTA to a glamamama!

We managed to finish the shoot just before 3pm, which is really when my “workday” starts. Once my kids, Tyler and Talia, finish school each day, life goes at warp speed. I bring my children to all their activities, and as all moms know, there are always activities! Otherwise I’m at home with them helping  with their homework, or reading with them. (During exam time, it’s a big NO to all social engagements, hair appointments etc   other than revision with the kids. In fact all my friends know that during 3 weeks of the year I’m indisposed, no matter how appealing an invitation!)

Luckily on this particular day we had no exams and I managed to sneak out to support the book launch of Hong Kong Fashion Authority, Janice Wong.

On the very same night was also a Scipian launch at On Pedder, where I purchased two necklaces by Nyphenburg!

The second the event ended I was back in my car an heading home.  I rushed home just in time to tuck the kids to bed for prayers and kisses…

And now it’s 930pm I can finally relax, until tomorrow. It’s the weekend and you’d think I’d be able to have some downtime… Alas tomorrow is another day with basketball practice, birthday parties, family dinner, art classes, and oh, another birthday party….
