Conscious Brands

Posted by Kate Vandermeer

 

Earlier this year, Noonie + I discussed what we wanted this year "2020" to be about for our biz. We wanted to bring more CONSCIOUSNESS + CONNECTION to TheSuperCool.

As a result, we've asked some of our brands to do short video's about what they're doing to be more CONSCIOUS as a brand in relation to climate control + social responsibility.  When watching and listening to these it dawned on me how important it is to share these stories with our customers and the community. 

We had planned to launch this in March and then a lil thing called COVID happened! So we've had a slightly delayed launch for this concept! 

We figure, if you're going to buy a gift for a family member or friend or new baby etc, you'd like for your purchase to have a dual purpose (providing joy for the receiver )but also supporting a small business and the brand that made the product in the process! Hopefully this video series will help you feel like your dollar spend really does count! 

We're kicking this off with Halcyon Nights - our fave kids brand. It's seriously the CUTEST video. You just need to jump over to our instagram to watch the video. We'll also have a SAVED Instagram Highlight area for watching all of these.

Each week we'll share a new story. YAY!

We'd love your feedback on these and if you could share these with others you think might appreciate it, we would love that too!

Podcasts we're digging!

Posted by Kate Vandermeer

Lately, I've been getting into podcasts - like ALOT! I'm pretty late to the game on this but finding time bymyself to listen to audio with a newborn proved difficult. As Luna is a bit older now, I've been listening to podcasts when I walk her in the pram and when I pick up Lola from school. During Isolation, I also listened to podcasts whilst doing personal deliveries for our SuperCool community! So I've found a few podcasts I've really been loving and wanted to share them with you all.

1. The Grace Tales - Georgie Abay host, editor + author of The Grace Tales website / online mag interviews some diverse mainly Aussie people covering all sorts of topics related to motherhood: i.e. Parenting, post-natal depletion, how to stop people pleasing, mindfulness and transformation, sisterhood and birth order! Fave's are: Jacqui Lewis, Teresa Palmer & Caitlin Cady. 

2. Lady Start Up - Mama Mia presents all sorts of inspiring women who have begun biz's. My fave interview thus far has been the creator of Canva, "Melanie Perkins". 

3. Second Life - Created by Hillary Kerr of Who What Wear and based in LA, this podcast interviews mainly Americans who have pivoted from one career to another.  Some of my faves have been Miranda Kerr, Justina Blakeney, Reese Witherspoon and Cindy Crawford on their respective changes from one career to another. 

4. Jumbled Loves a Chat - Pip has some great convo's with inspiring women from many different industries but mainly small biz about their lives and lessons learned! Fave's have been Phoebe from Sage + Clare, Rachel Castle, Jane Cay from Birdsnest. 

5. Imprint by Natalie Walton - Natalie has curated a gentle, inspiring bunch of women who have chosen to lead a slower, quieter life. She shares their stories as to why and how. Faves have been Courtney Adamo & Emma Lane. 

6. Offline - Alison Rice interviews a variety of people with Instagram profiles but likes to peel the layers behind their edited persona.  She interviews experts on sleep, facing fears, post-natal depression, human design, Ayurveda and what success means to them. Faves have been Kelly Muller, Pip Edwards, Deborah Hutton and Jacyln Michelle. 

I'm discovering new podcasts all the time, so I will edit this list as I find more that I dig but if you have any you recommend, please share!

Creating a Calm Casa

Posted by Kate Vandermeer

Setting the mood.... so important for creating the right vibe for the whole casa!

(Particularly at the moment in Isolation!)

Come 6:30-7ish, I put lamps on & turn off all bright lights... I have our diffusor going throughout the day so the house smells amazing and often burn candles 🕯 at night when the kiddies are asleep to relax our parental bodies!!

The oils I love to use are listed below:


1. Upper Oil - great for mornings, focus + homeschooling, getting it done! Upper oil has woody + citrus oils which make it grounding + uplifting! Boom 💥


2. Centre Oil - perfect for baths, chilling, night time wind down... (pure lavender: so its super relaxing!) Great for calming tantrumy kids!


3. Downer Oil - great to put on your feet + wrists before meditation, yoga or bed! The ultimate mix of relaxing oils inc Patchouli + Sandalwood (my faves)


4. Australian Native: Eucalyptus & Acacia
Wanna feel energised & also like you live in the bush? This oil is super uplifting but also fresh & a lil slice of “home”.
