As part of our #GiveGoodGifts campaign, we are going to be interviewing some of our favourite bloggers, brands, independent retailers and customers. Finding out the answers to 3 simple questions.
For our first interview, we are delighted to welcome Besma, Wellness Blogger and Founder of the gorgeous blog Curiously Conscious.
What do you love about Christmas?
Christmas for me is a time to cherish my relationships with others. I love catching up with friends, going to the office Christmas party to make closer personal ties with my colleagues, and seeing my family on the big day. I was recently explaining to a friend how I’d rather meet up with all my friends before Christmas than send a card - it’s so much nicer to see someone and make a memory.
What is your favourite Good Gift?
Last year I received a small selection of really thoughtful gifts. Best of those was the camera my family pooled in for; it’s really helped me to further my passion for photography and my blog has benefited too! It was also really sweet to learn that my boyfriend had researched natural and cruelty-free beauty products to give to me - the thought really does count.
What is the best gift you’ve ever given?
Ooh tough question! I have a few really good memories, such as giving my boyfriend a trip to Paris over New Year’s (I lived there a while ago so it’s so nice to go back and visit old friends and the city itself), and also a few unexpected presents throughout the year for my family. I once put together a video of clips of my family for my Dad which made him really laugh, and also recently sent a box of survival items to my sister as she starts her last year of university.
Thank you Besma.
This week has been interesting. For those who don’t know, due to a similarity in names with a company called Soap & Co. which has been investigated by BBC Newsnight, many people mistook our brand for theirs.
We have been made aware of a BBC investigation into a company called SOAP & CO. Our company THE SOAP CO. has absolutely no connection to SOAP & CO. We are a completely separate company. This is us: https://thesoapco.org.
