How did you start out?
I have always been quite creative, I love candles and thought I would do a course and I loved it!
A Day in the Life of Nicole
Busy holding candle parties, making orders, promoting my business. Plus I am also a nail technician so making nails pretty 🙂
Who is your Biggest Inspiration?
My Mother – she has always supported me and made sure that I am always doing something I love and have passion for.
How do you stay up to date with the latest candle and homeware trends?
Social Media is a great way to stay up to date with the latest trends – it just doesn’t help my shopping addiction 🙂
What’s your favourite part of your job?
Candle parties of course! There’s no better excuse for a group of girls to get together and have some good food a champagne!
Best Beauty Tip/Secret?
This would have to be my exfoliation ‘Swipeys’ from ‘ Go To Skin Care’ – love love love these!
What’s your fave way to nurture/nourish yourself?
I’m in love with reformer Pilates at the moment. It pushes me but is so much fun…. I still occasionally like to spoil myself with the odd salt ‘n’ vinegar chips! Everything in moderation, right?
In your spare time, what do you get up to?
I love to shop, even if it is only window-shopping….
What is your best piece of advice for someone looking to get into their own business?
To believe in yourself! Anyone can be successful. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication, but it’s important to surround yourself with people who support you and if you want it bad enough it will happen…
What are your hopes and dreams for the future?
I would like to take ‘Jar Of Wax’ national. I’m also working on my website – aim high!
5 words to describe yourself?
Everything happens for a reason. Even if it seems bad something good will come out of it!
