27th April 2020 – It’s the Not Knowing that’s Hard

I don’t know about you, but one of the things I’ve struggled with most in the last month is the not knowing. Last week, I shared my hypothesis about Monday 1st June seeming a realistic date (to me) for the reopening of hairdressers, salons and other businesses similar to ours. I don’t know why but I’d really got that date in my …

22nd April 2020 – Lockdown Bucketlist

In my last blog, I shared my theory about the 6-week countdown having hopefully now started towards a potential reopening of nkd and other such businesses. For me, this means that I’m starting to feel the pressure a bit! From a business perspective, I’ve tried really hard to look at fundamental operating aspects of nkd that can be improved upon during …

20th April 2020 – 4 Weeks Down, 6 Weeks to Go?

Hope you had a pleasant weekend. For me, today feels like a bit of a milestone. It’s 4 weeks today since businesses such as ours were told categorically to close and the current restrictions on our daily movements were put in place. Meanwhile, if we look forward, 6 weeks’ today would take us to Monday 1st June. Now I’m as uninformed as …

15th April 2020 – Everyone is Different

I hope you’re doing OK today, whatever your personal circumstances are? After all, we’re all different aren’t we, with completely different circumstances, which means that life for us all has changed in so many different ways, depending on our individual situations. It’s really easy to fall into the trap of thinking that our lives all look pretty much the same at …

10th April 2020 – Reasons to stay positive

As we head into what promises to be a sunny Easter weekend (or sunny start to the weekend at least), I’m looking for extra reasons to be positive today. How’s about these for starters? Initial research still suggests that warmer weather will slow the spread of the disease. Another reason to be grateful for the beautiful sunshine we currently have? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-52121376 As of …

8th April 2020 – Be Selective and Be Sensible

How are you doing? I imagine that this is a difficult week for many. It feels to me like the #stayathome measures have been in place for so much longer than 2 and a bit weeks. Yet it’s clear that we’re still right at the start of this and nowhere close to being allowed to get back to normal any time …

6th April 2020 – A video from Head of Treatments & Training

Hope your weekend was OK? Yesterday’s beautiful sunshine certainly helped, didn’t it, although let’s hope that the gorgeous weather didn’t cause too much temptation for too many, and in doing so, ruining all our chances for imminent freedom… Today, I wanted to revisit by video, one of the topics we looked at last week. nkd’s Head of Treatments and Training, …

3rd April 2020 – A strong sense of purpose.

Another week down, another week closer to normality, eh? If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably settled into this new way of life with surprising ease (as always, I realise this may not apply if you’re frontline NHS/in another job which has gone crazy busy or become crazily stressful as a direct result of the crisis). I think it’s so interesting …

1st April 2020 – A video from the owner

Happy 1st day of April. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we were to have woken up this morning to discover that all this was the biggest, most twisted and most evil April Fools Jokes ever? But alas not. Instead of writing to you today, I decided to record something instead. Watch below… So that’s me! Rebecca (and family) at nkd ( …
