At Home With Natalie Hughes, Marketing & PR Manager at nontre.co

Posted by Tamara Michaeil on

Here we are in Sydney, entering the third week of lockdown. Not our first, and possibly not our last, but we’re better equipped to cope with staying at home this time around, and staying connected to each other. 

At nontre.co we love connecting with our community and sharing our tips for home and body care, and whilst we’re busy getting your orders safely to you we’ve also been taking care of ourselves with some of our favourite products.

We all have ways of making our home a haven, and this week our Marketing & PR Manager, Natalie Hughes has shared some of her lockdown tips with us.

Natalie, it’s the third week of lockdown in Sydney and we are all finding ways to create a daily routine to keep us motivated whilst still finding that lockdown work/life balance. Any tips?

(NH) This is a good question as it’s made me think, do I have the right balance? I mean has anyone figured out this balance 100% yet? Let’s just say it’s a work in progress! I do find that I’m more productive at home as I don’t have many distractions, however the snacking throughout the day...well I’m definitely eating much more than I would be at the office! 

I’m someone that thrives on being busy and I’m always on the go so my one tip would be that no matter how much work I have on, I make sure I go for a big walk every morning. It energises me for the day and keeps me in a routine as if I was getting up to go out to the office. I also pick up a take away coffee from my local shop to start my day, however I think all of us are looking forward to a step back into the ’new normal' way of life!

With technology at the forefront of our lives, especially during lockdown, it’s so important to discipline ourselves with screen time. Reading an actual, physical book is the perfect way to escape our screens. What are you reading at the moment? 

(NH) 100% - I’m currently reading Super Attractor by Gabrielle Bernstein. It focuses on methods for manifesting a life beyond your wildest dreams. I’m halfway through and plan to finish reading it by the end of lockdown. I’d definitely recommend getting your hands on this book! 

With so many beautiful products to choose from at nontre.co, you must have a favourite? Or two? 

(NH) It's so hard to pick favourites, but I have to admit I absolutely adore the Blu Collection Interior Perfume and Reed Diffusers... the Rare Blue Lotus scent is divine. Another of my top picks would have to be the Pine & Sea Minerals All- Purpose Cleaner . I use this product everyday, as I’m a bit of a neat-freak with keeping my worktops and benches clean and tidy! It leaves my kitchen smelling so fresh and clean with such a unique scent, I haven’t found this with any all purpose cleaners before! 

Ok now for a serious question...nothing goes better with cleaning than a great playlist! What are you listening to at the moment? 

(NH) This is hilarious, personally I’m such a fan of Rave Music. It’s my go to music for cleaning and really gets me in the mood! If I had to pick one song, it would be the “broomstick song” Check it out below... once you start cleaning with this song, you’ll be dancing around non-stop!

Oh gosh, completely kidding here haha... I’m actually a fan of 90's / early 2000 music!

I’m currently listening to Spotlight by Jennifer Hudson!

Natalie, thanks so much for sharing.  Happy cleaning everyone! 


Stay safe, love Nontre X

Happy Mother's Day!

Posted by Tamara Michaeil on

Mother’s Day is all about celebrating the amazing women in our lives...our mums, grandmothers, aunties and friends! No matter how old we get, we all need that special person who is always there for us, and they all deserve some spoiling on Mother’s Day.

2020 saw most of us celebrating Mother’s Day from afar, whether it was over a video call or standing out the front of the house with a bunch of flowers, it was a year we won’t forget. This year is still very challenging for so many of us but no matter where you are, you can let your mum know how special she is.

Thanks to the wonderful world of the internet, we can have the perfect Mother’s Day gifts delivered to our mums even if we can’t be with them. From their favourite fragrance to room diffusers and decadent body products, online shopping has you covered! 

Focusing on self care is so important, especially for busy mums and all our loved ones that we don’t see everyday, so the team at nontre.co have put together all our favourite products in two very special gift boxes, just in time for Mother’s Day. Or if you’d rather make up your own box, check out our best sellers. At nontre.co, we always have you in mind.

Of course, the most important part of Mother’s Day is thanking all the special women in our lives for their unconditional love. So to all our mums, female icons, role models and the wonderful women in the world, thank you and Happy Mother’s Day!

Here are a few of our favourite quotes from some very special women.

“Acceptance, tolerance, bravery, compassion. These are the things my mom taught me.” Lady Gaga

“Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.” Oprah Winfrey

“An aunt is a safe haven for a child. Someone who will keep your secrets and is always on your side.” Sara Sheridan

“She made me so strong. She made me independent. She taught me that fear was not an option.” Diane von Furstenberg

Achieve glowing skin, all year round

 Achieve glowing skin, all year round

No matter the season, your skin should be well nourished and hydrated. Drinking water, getting enough sleep and feeling happy all play a part in achieving that glowing complexion. Just as essential to a healthy glow, is nourishing our skin with a natural and gentle moisturiser. 

Prep it

Before reaching for your gorgeous new tub of moisturiser, it’s important to prep your skin. Exfoliating our bodies not only buffs away dead skin cells, it also increases circulation. nontre.co uses 100% natural, paraben & sulfate free ingredients in our Jasmin & Rose Miracle Glow Scrub so you can feel good about what you’re using whilst unveiling silky smooth skin. Use your exfoliator on wet or dry skin and always massage in circular motions before rinsing. 

Get your glow on

After exfoliating, it’s time to lock in moisture with a hydrating body milk. Our Jasmin & Rose Miracle Glow Milk is 100% natural and full of goodies like shea butter and essential oils to feed your skin. Always let your moisturiser absorb a little before massaging into your skin. Hello glow!

Our home is our sanctuary

Posted by Natalie Hughes on

Our home is our sanctuary

Whether you’re working from home, entertaining or just spending more time indoors, it’s so important to make your space your sanctuary. Rearranging your furniture or adding some new cushions and a throw instantly refreshes a room and makes it feel cosy and inviting. Introducing different scents to your home can have positive effects on your mood, sleep and overall well-being.

Self care 

Having a busy life shouldn’t mean neglecting ourselves. If you only have 15 minutes to yourself, make it count and start a daily ritual of self care. Walk around the block, breathe, meditate. All these rituals don’t take long but make all the difference to your day. Close your eyes and let your senses take you to another place through scent.

Surround yourself with luxury 

Reed Diffusers are a safe and stylish way to disperse your favourite scent throughout your home whether you’re wanting one signature scent or a different scent for each room. For the Bohemian, why not try a vibrant and herbaceous blend of citrus, geranium and musk. Or for a more Regal scent, try exotic white blossom and palmarosa. Looking for something rare and luxurious? Blue lotus and freesia will transform you to a world of opulence, in your own home. Always look for reusable diffuser bottles that also offer refills.
