They say that when you love what you do, you'll never work another day in your life.
This holds true at Kiana Beauty. Our team is truly passionate about what they do, from giving our customers valuable advice via our Ask an Expert and Gift Concierge features, to lovingly wrapping your orders and handwriting thank you notes. We are truly blessed to have such a fabulous team who love what they do.
We thought that you'd also like to know a little bit more about some of the team behind Kiana Beauty and put faces to names as we reflect on our favourite holiday traditions.
Christmas is all about food and family.
We start off with a small breakfast with our children, followed by a hot traditional lunch with my in-laws and then a crazy, bring-whatever-dish-you-feel-like-for-dinner with my enormous extended family.
I love the magic of Christmas Eve.
Our house is filled with white candles, we listen to carols and have family over for dinner.
It's a wonderful night to pause and reflect on how lucky we are to be happy, healthy, safe and loved.
If I could go anywhere in the world for Christmas, I'd travel to Cape Town to see my family.
It's been 27 years since we were all together for Christmas.
Then I'd like to fly to New York to see in the New Year.
My ideal Christmas day is spent with my family and seeing my children and grandchildren happy, opening presents and enjoying time together.
We enjoy a traditional Christmas lunch, followed by my signature Christmas Pudding.
This was my mum's recipe and it holds lots of special memories.
Christmas is the celebration of life. I love meeting up with friends and sharing Christmas nibbles together.
I love to create ambiance in my home by decorating it lavishly with fairy lights.
These remind me of my beautiful family who are living in Scotland, particularly of my mum who is a fairy light lady.
I'd love to spend Christmas in New York one year.
It would be wonderful to experience a white Christmas with all the great shopping and fabulous restaurants.
My favourite Christmas tradition is from my Dutch heritage.
My husband and children receive a chocolate letter that their name starts with along with a packet of Pepernoten - small cinnamon and aniseed cookies and a packet of Taai-Taai, a soft, chewy Dutch aniseed cookie.
These are delicious treats and we look forward to them every Christmas.
Christmas day begins with Mass for my family and I.
This is followed by a traditional Croatian lunch featuring Sarma (a stuffed sour cabbage roll), smoked meat and other traditional foods.
After that, I'm hoping to make some time to read and look forward to diving back into Consider the Lobster by David Foster Wallace.
Although not everyone celebrates Christmas in the same way, we hope that the magic of the holiday season fills your home with joy and your life with laughter.
We thank you all for your ongoing support and lovely feedback.
From our family to yours, warmest wishes for the holiday season.
