This is us…
Wow. 2020 is really throwing some difficult curve balls our way. I’m feeling so grateful to our governing bodies, who I may not always agree with, but are shouldering some huge responsibilities right now and down to the core are people too.
Our store has been a little quiet over here at Nest Seven, which we totally understand with so many suffering financial insecurity right now. Our courier tells us that he is busier than ever and delivering 70% more alcohol than usual. Hmmm. Maybe we’re in the wrong business! #onlyinaustralia!
We are thinking of our other small business friends who are hurting right now too, our neighbours, families and friends some of who have lost jobs and are unsure what the future holds. We are also loving seeing the community spirit thrive with lots of chalk rainbows, teddy bears, grocery trips for friends and neighbours and shared supplies. I hope these things continue past the isolating period.
We’re very aware of how social isolating can effect mental health so we want to let you all know that we’re here. Online. All the time! We will always reply to a message, even if it’s just for a little bit of conversation. We hope you are all safe and well xx
We couldn’t go past the Modi Bodi range to spotlight for you this month. We love these products ALL of the time but especially at the moment where we are trying to limit our trips to the shops.
The Modi Bodi range of period undies can be in lieu of pads and tampons, alongside a cup, during training or work outs or as a back up with a tampon instead of a liner.
The Classic Bikini are definitely the most popular styles – available in both light to moderate absorbancy and heavy to overnight these are also available in Boy Leg and Classic Full Brief. We have a new drop arriving any day now so if we don’t have your size or style in stock feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you out x
Cooking for our friends and families is something we love to do and we often use our Thermomixes to do it.
Both Nest Seven ladies are also Thermomix consultants, yes we love our Thermies that much! You can check our Facebook pages where we share meal plans, tips and recipes for feeding our families and access to a co-op buying group for bulk wholefoods.
Working from home can be a time when we raid our fridges and pantries a little too often! These Broccoli and Bacon Tarts is a favourite recipe of mine for a quick go to for that 3pm slump. I like to use up the stalk of the broccoli which may otherwise go to waste in this recipe. This recipe can be found on the Cookidoo website as part of a UK collection Picnic. For help finding it please feel free to get in touch below.
Oil of the month
In times of uncertainty we can experience feelings of imbalance. Sometimes we can’t even recognise those feelings within ourselves, they present themselves in our attitudes and behaviours. Balance essential oil helps to promote tranquility and relaxation. Spruce, an essential oil ingredient in this blend, was used by Native Americans and is still used today to bring harmony to the mind and body.
This oil can be applied topically. Try rubbing a few drops on the bottom of your feet to help promote a sense of calmness. This oil can also be applied to your wrists or neck.
Diffuse within the home or car during stressful times to help create a healing and calm sanctuary.
Balance has a warm woody aroma created by a blend of Spruce Leaf, Ho Wood Leaf, Frankiensense Resin, Blue Tansy Flower, Blue Chamomile Flower and Osmanthus Flower.
From their family to yours…
Our Girl Boss for this month, Tash is one half of the duo that bring us Born and Bread, our fav bakery in the Geelong region. You will not find better croissants or sour dough and don’t even let me start on the chicken sandwhiches!
This family run business in Marshall St, Newtown is like many other local small businesses that are navigating the Covid Curveball we are all living at the moment but Tash and third generation baker Ben have risen to the challenge.
It’s businesses like this that need our support right now so if you’re in the area pop in for a take away coffee, a loaf of artisan bread or a sweet treat.
Don’t want to cook? Don’t! Born and Bread are also now home delivering.
