We catch up with Georgia and find out how this busy entrepreneur spends her weekends.
Saturday morning is my time for myself. My husband usually plays a round of early morning golf, so either I’ll open my computer and catch up on work or settle into the couch with a coffee and a good book. At the moment, I’m reading Nine Perfect Strangers, by Liane Moriarty. I love her!! Then, I feed my dog Hank and take him for a walk around the block. Usually, I pick up a smoothie from our local wholefood café. I am a ‘cherry ripe’ girl through and through. Cherry, cacao and almond milk. So good! Sometimes I’ll head to High Street to check out Desordre, Scanlan Theodore and Dion Lee.
My Saturday nights are looking very different these days (I’m pregnant!). Usually, my husband and I keep it pretty low key and go out for date night. Our fave is Di Stasio Pizzeria in Carlton or if we’re staying home, we love ordering from Neighborhood Pizza. The vodka pasta is insane. If we’re watching tv we usually binge something on Netflix. We are loving Happy Valley at the moment. Occasionally, I have a girlfriend’s hens or a wedding. All of my best friends are getting married within an 8 month period!! So fun. I love getting dressed up and going out just as much as I’m loving staying in these days.
Sunday morning we usually catch up with some friends for breakfast, then head to the market to pick up some fresh fruits, veggies and fish for the week. My husband is an amazing cook (I’m hopeless!) and plans dinners for us during the week. We love cooking from Monday Morning Cooking Club or Ottolenghi. Sunday mornings are also my pamper time. My go-to beauty products that I wear daily are Barbara Sturm face moisturiser, Too Faced mascara, Charlotte Tilbury flawless filter and Nars eyeliner.
Sunday evening, we usually make a healthy, home cooked dinner at home (followed by ice cream!) or we go to my sister in laws for dumplings with her kids! It’s the best time to unwind before a big week ahead. My Sunday evening beauty routine features our Watermelon Mint Whitening Toothpaste, Floss and our Coconut Mint Mouthwash. I also use our Gem Electric Toothbrush religiously and have been loving our new colourway ‘Rose’. I usually finish all outstanding emails and tasks during the day. So, by the evening, I shut my laptop, spend time with my husband and get ready for a big week ahead!
Georgia Geminder is determined to be a driving force in the future of oral care and having been dubbed a Forbes 30 under 30 (Retail & Commerce) Georgia is proving to be just that! After spending years immersed in the beauty industry, through modelling and an obsession with personal care, Georgia took a particular interest in the wellness space, educating herself on microbiome health. She learned about the importance of gut health, microbiomes, natural ingredients, and the power of forming healthy habits.
The more she learned, the more she started questioning the daily-use products that contradict and compromise our health standards. This led to the development of Gem, a toxic-free, probiotic-rich oral care range. Georgia believes natural products that actually work, should be available to everyone, and everyone deserves to feel nurtured in their daily rituals.
