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…

3 Tips for relaxation

Light a Neom Tranquillity candle, take a Tranquillity bath and spritz pillow
mist! DEEP relaxation!

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.

Read before bed – the best way to take you out of your world is to enter
. Not too much of a thinking book, definitely not factual. The Great Gatsby is pretty fab. 

Top Tips for getting started in the beauty/well-being industry

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

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.

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.
