“More now than ever, we live busy lives, and we (as women and mums) have a bad habit of not putting ourselves first. I feel a little self-love weekly (if not daily) is a must!”
Carley is the owner of Evella Co, a business selling luxury handcrafted bath and body products to soothe your mind, body and soul.
Handmade in Sydney, Evella Co was created to share the magic of a day spa experience in the comfort and privacy of your own abode.
As lovers of all things self-care, it was lovely to chat with Carley and hear what keeps her grounded in our busy world.
Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got to be doing what you’re doing.
I started Evella Co to create something for me, something to get my creative side flowing again. After becoming a mum, I lost touch.
Like most mothers, it all becomes about the kids, which is completely normal, but I needed out of that bubble, and Evella Co let me do that.
I wanted to create products that brought that day spa experience into the comfort of your own home. We don’t always have time to spend hours at a day spa, but hop in a bath for half an hour, light a candle, game changer.
Evella Co has definitely grown the past 12 months; we have created a gorgeous body range, and we also stock a fabulous range of silk products... and there will definitely be more to come!
How important is self-care to you?
More now than ever, we live busy lives, and we (as women and mums) have a bad habit of not putting ourselves first. I feel a little self-love weekly (if not daily) is a must! I have two young girls, and I’ve made a point of making sure they understand I need a moment every now and again, but also, they do too!
What is a simple pleasure or daily ritual that brings you joy?
Clay face masks! The feeling of the clay drying on your face is so satisfying, such a natural beauty!
What do you do for yourself when you need to slow down or take a break?
Read! I love to read, it’s a passion that I put on hold for a few years while my girls are young, and I’ve recently made time to make that a priority again. I’m absolutely loving it.
Do you have a favourite quote or mantra? What is it?
You have one life, live it.
Name three things you can’t live without.
My silk pillowcase
My de-tangle hairbrush
My wedding band
I should also add my girls and husband, but that’s a given!
