5 minutes with Bindle's Catherine Blackford

What do you love most about the job you've created for yourself?

I love discovering new Australian-made products and learning about the stories of the talented local artisans behind them!

Do you find it difficult to manage your business and still have time for family, friends and hobbies?

It's very difficult! The two do definitely blend every now and again, however I have become 'a little bit' more disciplined in taking time off on the weekends to spend with friends and family and of course me-time (in small doses...)

What are your top picks for Christmas this year? 

Christmas to me is about 'eating, drinking and being merry' so any gifts themed around Australian-made local produce that can be shared is my top pick. The gift has to be beautifully wrapped of course as that is an important part of the experience. My picks from the Bindle gift range are 'Life's Essentials' and 'Joy to the World'.

Share some of your me-time rituals...

Yoga followed by a coffee and watching the world go by. 

You're stuck on a desert island, what three beauty essentials do you need?

Facial scrub (I love Jacqueline Evans chamomile and walnut scrub), Leif Lillypilly, Eucalyptus & Tea Tree Body wash and body lotion (Jurlique Citrus cream is heavenly!)

Soak Society is proud to be stocked in Bindle's 'O 2 B Pampered' Gift Hamper.
