The Experts. The Brands. Nicola Elliott - NEOM


Nicola Elliott is the Founder of NEOM Luxury Organics - a lifestyle brand that has literally exploded in the last couple of years and has huge fans in the blogging world.

I asked Nicola for some tips on relaxing - don't we all need to relax more? - and her Top 3 Tips for anyone thinking of starting a brand...

Top 3 Tips for relaxation
1. Light a Neom Tranquillity candle, take a Tranquillity bath and spritz pillow mist! DEEP relaxation!
2. Do a little light exercise a few times a week, it massively helps with sleeping. I love swimming because it’s a pleasure rather than a chore... Find your pleasure.
3. Read before bed - the best way to take you out of your world is to enter another. Not too much of a thinking book, definitely not factual. The Great Gatsby is pretty fab. 

Her Top Tips for getting started in the beauty/well-being industry
1. Have a 'can-do' attitude. Business isn't hard as such, it just requires the right attitude, loads of juggling and a real passion so you can enjoy working so hard.
2. Network. There are some great girls out there and that 6 degrees of separation thing is true - someone always knows someone who can help you.
3. Create something really good. Theres a place for brilliant product, brilliant blogs, brilliant spas.
Customers are more savvy than ever but cream always rises to the top.

And Nicola's favourite time of the day?
Kids in bed - and it’s me time; we light a candle and make a nice tea.


NEOM have very kindly offered one of their divine Christmas HARMONISE candles to the lovely readers of this blog 

Simply leave a comment below with some relevant contact detail - either a twitter handle or email address and a winner will be chosen at random on Sunday 1st December - when I am announcing something lovely for December on the blog!

T&C's
  • Giveaway ends at 11.59pm on Saturday 30th November GIVEAWAY CLOSED
  • Open in the UK only
More info on Nicola and NEOM can be found on their website: www.neomorganics.com

  7. I've wanted to try something from NEOM for ages now, I have the Tranquility candle on my Christmas list after my friend recommended it- she suffered with anxiety for years and said this candle really helped to relieve it. I'm just imagining a really peaceful Christmas eve with a gorgeous NEOM candle burning in the background hehe, hopefully it'll be one from the Harmonise collection! xxx

  38. Oh Neom sounds amazing! Luckily my boyfriend just moved to London for his study *now there's something I never thought I would say*. That means I can join the giveaway, he could just bring the candle with him when he visits :). I live in the Netherlands and Neom isn't sold here. The products sound really nice.

    Do you have any favorite scents yourself? (I might check out a shop when I visit him to sniff some products)
