DISCOUNT CODE – ALLFORHERSELF – This gives a 15% discount to your orders

1.    What do you do for yourself in the name of self care?

So many things! I love self care, it’s one of my favourite things to talk about, and it’s what Soak Society stands for! Personally, my go-to list of self care activities at the moment includes: meditation, walking on the beach with my dog Rusty, Pilates, a long bubble bath while watching Netflix, doing a 20 minute face mask, reading a magazine while I eat breakfast slowly. The list could go on but I’ll leave it there for now!

2.    What do you do for fun?

As above 😉 Also – Hip Hop dance classes, dinners with friends, dates with my partner, going to the farmers markets and the beach with friends or alone. I also count work as fun (most of the time)! 

3.    How do you relax and unwind?

When I’m feeling stressed and like I can’t switch off, I’ll put my phone on aeroplane mode so there’s no distractions, and just have a glass of wine and chat to my partner about my day or other random thoughts. Sometimes all it takes is another person to put things in perspective! Other than that, I will just try to be in the moment, or go to a day spa!

4.    What is your ideal holiday?

Something adventurous with a touch of indulgence! This year in December we’re going to Mexico with friends for my 30th birthday (my first proper holiday in a couple of years). I spent 6 months in Mexico in 2013 and can’t wait to go back.

5.    How do your products help regular people with self care/relaxation?

My goal when I started Soak Society was to create all natural and organic products that still looked good in the bathroom, and I think we are doing well at achieving that! The fact that our products are at an affordable price point helps in spreading the me-time message. 

6.    What is your best selling product/why?

It’s a tie between our Rose and Sleep wellness soaks. They both have petals which are so beautiful in the bath.

7.    Do you have a discount code for the All For Herself readers?

Yes! Use ALLFORHERSELF at checkout for 15% off all orders!

8.    What are your tips for work life balance?

Even if you’re busy, try to incorporate at least 1 or 2 self-care rituals or moments of me-time into your day. Just slow down. You’ll be more productive for it, and it does get easier to do over time! 

9.    What’s your favourite drink?

I love Elle Macphersons Super Elixir! And a strong soy Flat White. 

10.    Does your business have any big announcements/ sneak peeks you want to share?

Last month we launched our newest product – BathDew, which is an organic bubble bath! We spent a year in product development, so we’re so excited to finally share it with our customers! The scent is magnolia, rose and orange blossom, and we added a vegan collagen extract as well as magnesium, for an extra beauty boost. The best part is it is a glittery rose gold colour!
