Gorgeous Renelle from Pop Up Succulent Shop is generously giving away two tickets to one of her workshops so you and a friend can have a great afternoon together creating something beautiful. I tell you what, I desperately want to keep this prize for myself!
This is one of my absolute favourite businesses in this year’s giveaway, in fact, I am smelling one of her incredible candles as I type this!
Firefly Earth is owned and operated by the gorgeous Trudey Bailey and offers pure soy triple scented candles.
Firefly was born 10 years ago, when Trudey’s baby was 11 months old and after a trip to Canada to visit family, Trudey noticed just how many homes she visited had candles burning. The candle culture was massive in the northern hemisphere, and she says she was all in after that trip.
Trudey says the problem she faced back in Australia was that if she wanted a triple scented candle that packed a fragrance punch, she could only find them in paraffin. Australia had various ranges of soy candles but the fragrance seemed to be a little light on. Trudey says she didn’t feel comfortable burning paraffin around her baby so decided to create her own!
The thing that sets Firefly Earth apart is the brilliant business strategy. She has streamlined all her products to make it so much easier for consumers. Some companies may offer up to 30 different fragrance’s which is great for consumers who love bulk choice. Trudey says that after observing her sale trends over the years she made the decision to take more of a minimalistic approach and not overwhelm the bejesus out of her customers. Trudey says she quickly realised that it didn’t matter what she offered up, her customers always returned to the top 3 sellers. Angels Milk, Bondi & French Pear.
Having said that, this year she is offering a super special Christmas edition candle! It’s called Christmas Caramel, its the Angel’s Milk Blend with swirls of hot salted caramel notes. You won’t regret purchasing that one!

In 2015, after many years of working in and out of the Beauty Industry her passion for making people look and feel beautiful for weddings and special occasions led to the establishment of New Bloom Makeup Artistry.

You know how some people are just lucky enough to be massively talented as well as perfectly lovely? Well, that is the best way to describe Kel from Kellie Gibson Graphic Design.
Kellie Gibson Graphic Design has been operating for over 5 years and can help with all your graphic design needs. This includes stationary, logos, invitations as well as custom designed team wear. She will take you all the way from design to the finished product, including printing!
Kel just loves to design and will tackle anything you throw her way. She says she often finds herself working on party invites one second, then signage and sublimated clothing designs the next!
She particularily loves working with businesses to find their voice. She says “Your logo is your branding and identity. You want to be the first thought of a perspective client when they need one of your products or services.” With this attitude and the right amount of know-how she can take your business to the next level.
My husband and I used Kellie Gibson Graphic Design when we needed our business to have a refresh. It was funny, we didn’t even know what we wanted, but thankfully Kel was able to work with us to create something better than we ever could have thought. I found it incredible how she was able to transform our scattered sketches and verbal ideas into something perfect.
I love businesses that start organically, and from the heart and that is exactly where Run Riot came from.
Started by Kellie Gibson last year this active wear brand has grown enormously due to its loyal supporters.
Kellie says running riot was how she described her kids when they would just take off and run wild and free, not taking life too seriously and just being in the moment. Kids run with an uninhibited freedom and lack of judgement and she wanted to encapsulate that into her sports headwear brand.
Run Riot was born from the notion of running free like a child, and who doesn’t want that feeling? Best of all, this is a brand that can be enjoyed by the whole family while you all RUN RIOT!
Because Run Riot is awesome they are offering 20% off to all nesters for the rest of December! Just use the code ‘Nest20’ – woo hoo Christmas stocking fillers sorted!
If you would like to help your family Run Riot then get in contact today:
