OUR FOUNDER

Hello, I’m Suzanne Duckett, a well-known, respected Journalist and Editor who has for the last three decades have held the post of Health and Beauty Director of some of the most successful magazines in the World from Cosmopolitan to Good Housekeeping, and the former Editor of the Tatler Spa Guide and currently Spa Expert for The Telegraph and contribute to The Times.  I am also the Author of Bathe, The Art of Finding Rest, Relaxation and Rejuvenation in a Busy World.

Whilst writing for the most prestigious, demanding publications, I also regularly appeared on TV and radio, speaking and moderating at events and summits and consulting to big and small brands, hotels and spas; and private clients helping people to be the best, most successful, natural version of themselves.

Then digital happened and candidly, overnight I became beholden to the men in suits in the corner office on the top floor who put profit over principles, giant advertisers over honest editorial and big global brands over small, exciting fire starters and giant faceless retailers monopolising marketplace over independent trail blazers. I needed a more transparent, democratic place to call my own.

ONOLLA IS THAT... 

A down-to-earth-place where I can share my measured, researched, informed knowledge with you.

Weaving world-class products, tried and trusted contacts, practitioners and rituals creating a unique line-up of the best products, self-care sets, topical collections and seasonal gift sets that embrace the rhythms of nature.

WHY THE NAME ONOLLA?

Onolla is an acronym for Online Now, Offline Later and striking this balance is a thread running through all we do because I think being online so much is going to be one of the big ongoing health hazards and our purpose is to help people balance that out with bringing nature into their lives.

It’s astounding how disconnected we have become with nature and our purpose and passion is to re-wild urban city dwellers in a practical, down-to-earth way, starting with daily habits and routines, bathroom cabinets, and make-up bags. If you know your moisturiser is full of foraged herbs from a biodynamic farm, you start relating to nature in a different way.

By syncing with the rhythms of Nature, mirroring your health, beauty and life choices with the seasons, we will cultivate a deeper connection between ourselves and our environment. The planet needs it, we humans need it.
