Meet The Team - Week 1 Nicola Tweed

When you send us a mail, give us a call, comment on our blog or facebook page... do you ever wonder who the are people behind the replies? When you come in store... who wraps your gifts, assists you, shows you around?  Who is behind the scenes making, creating, hunting and sourcing...

In this mini series we are going to ask our team to share some secrets, talk about their role at The Ruby Orchard and find out who they would love to have dinner with!  Join us every Wednesday to get to know our team! 

To kick off the series Nicola Tweed answered some questions for me... You must check out her awesome Design & Lifestyle blog for motivation, inspiration and exercise and diet tips.

1// What were you doing before you started working at The Ruby Orchard?
Before The Ruby Orchard & Howick I was living in London working for an Insurance company as an Underwriter/Sales Assistant , the work was in all honesty very dull but the crazy bunch of people I worked with made it a great place to work!

2// What do you like most about your role at The Ruby Orchard?
I love the creative freedom I have in my role, from the layout of the shop to the creating of blog posts and taking pictures of the products. I also love coming up with new marketing ideas for the shop.
Oh yes and the 2 minute commute!  

 3// When you were younger what did you want to be when you grew up?!
I’m still deciding, when I’m all grown up I’ll let you know…
Ok but seriously I do remember when I was teen I wanted to be a vet but when I realised I had to take Biology with a dragon of a teacher I decided against it. 3 years with that woman as a teacher would have totally killed me!  

 4// Describe yourself in 3 words!
Hmmmmm good question
Patient, poised and trustworthy

5// What do you on your days off?
I love a good lie in, not necessarily sleeping but just playing on my ipad and reading in bed.  I’ve also been enjoying the many café’s that the Meander has to offer – Café Bloom is a winner. I really wish it was in Howick!

6// 2 truths and 1 lie about yourself
I was bitten by a monkey when I was about 7.
I am the happiest morning person.
I once worked for the Richelieu family.

7// I never leave home without…
I can and often leave home with nothing.  I hate baggage especially when I go shopping or dancing!

8//  What’s your -
Top Song(at the moment) Imagine Dragons – On Top of the World
Top Food  - (at the moment) Woolworths speckled eggs
Top beverageAny green juice & a bottle of Malbec! Ha, Ha, ha what a contradiction.
Top PlaceL.A - the mountains, the beach, the shops, the weird, the wacky, the health freaks and the glamorous. Love it all!

9// Imagine you are heading out for dinner with a bunch of famous bods - who would be sitting around the table with you?
