"Just imagine how powerful we would all be if we gave ourselves the amount of support that we gave one another? That’s an empowering thought"…
Kelly is the co-founder of the now global Edible Blooms. An entrepreneurial and innovative CEO Kelly has beautiful life values that clearly blossom within all elements of her business.
What does beauty mean to you?
Beauty is balance, nurturing the inside as well as our outer skin. The trick to beauty for me is knowing that you never get that balance right but trying as hard as I can to get it as ‘almost balanced’ as I can each day.
What do you love the most about the work you do?
I love that we get to help our customers create memorable and happy moments every day. Every Edible Bloom that we deliver carries an important message, sentiment and celebration of joy.
What is an average day in the life of Kelly ?
Like you Sally I live regionally. Our home is on a farm near Port Elliot on the Fleurieu and I live with my husband and two children (8 and 6 years). Three days a week I commute to our global head office in Adelaide and two days each week I work from my home office and enjoy my Mum duties of school drop off and pick up. It’s a juggle but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What do you do to give back to yourself? what is your favorite self-care ritual?
Like most Mum’s there is much less of this self care time than there was pre children. I love a cup of tea in the evening catching up with my husband and making the time for a quick face mask means that I am getting some balance in my routine.
What do you do to Nourish your Body?
Drinking lots of water is important and I try to get this right every day. When I carry a water bottle with me it makes the world of difference to reaching my 2L daily goal vs just filling up glasses through the day. Someone recommended that we try and drink 1L by 10am each day and if I hit this mark I easily reach my daily target! I also love a good body scrub and the OrganiQ coconut scrub is so good I could eat it for dessert at the end of the day😊
What is your daily skincare routine?
My morning routine is religious and I always wash my face thoroughly, spritz the rosewater OrganiQ and moisturize. Hydrating skin is a must to start the day. Each evening I hydrate my skin again ready for sleep. A good moisturizer is worth it’s weight in gold
What is your Number one skincare secret?
Moisturise, Hydrate, Moisturise. Repeat.
What is your favorite QrganiQ product and why?
This is a trick question – the entire range is amazing. If I have to pick, it would be the Rosewater spritz. It smells so pretty and really makes my skin feel refreshed.
If you could pass on one piece of guidance or thought to women world wide - what would it be?
I would love to see women give themselves more self love. We recently had a pregnant mother send herself an Edible Blooms gift for delivery after she had given C Section birth to her baby. It contained the most amazing message of encouragement for herself, it said
‘To me, You had your first baby today! Even though bub was delivered via caesarean, you still crushed it like the Rockstar you are! YOU DESERVE THIS!! Love from me your past, terrified self xxx’.
As a Mum who also faced a C-section birth (by choice) I loved the self-love and this is one amazing human I would love to one day meet. Just imagine how powerful we would all be if we gave ourselves the amount of support that we gave one another? That’s an empowering thought…
