An update from Steph

April 02, 2020

 

Oh hey, we’re still here!

As a small biz’ it’s no secret to say these have been tricky and stressful times we have been navigating the past few weeks. We are so grateful for the support in our loyal Montii crew, amazing stockist and wonderful customers!

We want everyone to know, now more than ever we need that support and that you can still expect the same speedy dispatch and ah-mazing customer service!


WAREHOUSE AND SHIPPING UPDATE 

Our warehouse is dispatching daily both wholesale and retail orders, don’t think for a second you can slow Geoff down!

We have taken on extra hygiene measures when packing your previous Montii goodies to ensure all safety standards are met. All retail orders are being shipping via Australia Post who have enforced a few changes to protect everyone's wellbeing:

  • Australia Post are now doing contactless delivery (no signature on delivery)
  • Australia Post have removed their Express Post option as they are unable to guarantee delivery timelines.
  • International shipping has been paused for the moment. It will be back as soon as we are confident your parcels will arrive in a timely manner.

CUSTOMER SERVICE UPDATE 

Our customer service team is still here to answer any questions, concerns or if you have any issues. The team is working from home, they might have a different backdrop but they're still here and more than happy to help! 

The crew is there 9-2 Monday-Friday, shoot them an email at support@montii.co

NEW RANGE UPDATE 

Now for the fun stuff! We have a huge range of new release items planned, including new colours, new products and a whole bunch of goodies you are sure to love! Our new arrivals have been delayed (sad face), but you bet we are working as hard as possible to get them here! And they WILL be here!

When they do arrive, man-oh man, will we be excited! Your support will mean the world to us - we could even say, we’d love for you to shout it from the rooftops!!


Because everyone is asking here’s a sneaky peek into the current timeline:

  • Ice Packs - Mid April 
  • Drink Bottles + Coffee Cups - Early May 
  • Smoothie Cups (and a few surprises!) - Mid May
  • Lunch Bags - Late April (1st drop!) and more coming late May.  
  • Lots of other new goodies coming in May that we can’t tell you about just yet! 

So that sums it up from us, we’re still here working hard and we aren’t going anywhere! Please keep on supporting us, if that’s in the way of gifts for later in the year or just showing your love on Instagram (because we all know that’s where we love to hangout!). Honestly, it just means the world to not just me, but the whole Montii team. 

Till next time,

Here are 15 ways you can use your Snack & Pack Bags for non-food fun!

1. Playing Cards - UNO cards falling out of their old packet. Our Snack & Pack Bags will keep them conveniently stored neatly together - especially when heading out of the house! (Picnic UNO tournament anyone?

2. Reusable baby wipes - Do you make your own baby wipes? (First up - hats off to you!) Sealed tight means they are perfect for keeping your baby wipes moist!

3. First aid kit - On-the-go first aid kit! Bandaids, tweezers.. Especially for those accident-prone kiddos (mine!)

4. Hair ties and bobby pins - Must have for any handbag!

5. Busy Bags - Need to keep the kids occupied when heading to the local cafe? Pop some lego or their favourite matchbox car into your Pack & Snack Bag!

6. Last-minute present emergency pouch - Alright tell me I’m not the only Mum who buys a birthday gift on the way to the party!? Pop your sticky tape, scissors and a pen into your Pack & Snack bag to keep in the glovebox for last-minute emergencies! (You’ll thank me one day for this!)

7. Headphone and phone cables - Do you loose headphones and phone cables in the bottom of your bag when travelling? Here’s the solution!

8. Sunnies or Glasses case - Avoid scratches!

9. Sunscreen - Heading out to the beach for the day and you find the sunscreen has leaked all through your bag? Not if it’s packed conveniently into your Pack & Snack!

10. Makeup bag - Perfect size for heading away for the weekend or those small makeup touch-ups! (Note: Depending on your makeup needs as Ness kindly pointed out!)

So that’s a roundup! If you thought these guys were just for snacks - think again!! You’ll be needed to add a few to your cart (you know, just in case!)

Getting to know… Kowen!

June 18, 2020

Kowen (aka Kirsty) tries to hide more behind the camera than in front! So we thought, it was about time we changed that. We put Kowen in the hot seat to ask her all the questions.. So let’s find out all the important stuff!



Meet Kowen!

I feel like a little bit of Deja Vu here, Kowen’s real name is Kirsty, but with one Kirsty already in the office (yes, what are the chances!) we decided that was too confusing and swifty did a little OC nickname!

 

What do you do at Montii?

I’ve been at Montii for around 10 months (I think!) I do content production and design. So in other words, all the pretty pictures you see..bag prints… packaging..the product photos you see! That’s my handy work.

 

Tell us about your family

It’s me, my partner Phil and 1-year-old baby Rico who’s full of mischief (but is SO cute!)

 


What is your coffee order? 

Vanilla Flat White

 

Tell us an online brand that you love, and why?

I can’t choose just one so I have two - Garzie + May, a beautiful Sunshine Coast brand where I recently bought Rico a super cute Boho Palm quilt! And Bam Loves Boo (another QLD brand actually) for the cutest baby/kids clothing ever (seriously check them out!)

 

Do you have a celebrity doppelganger? 

Apparently, Kirsten Dunst - but I’m totes not a fan!

 

What is your spirit animal, and why?

Sparrow…..because I’m an early bird and I lurve birds, I totally want to be a twitcher when I’m retired.

 

What weird food combination do you really enjoy?

I love any and every condiment or add on available especially the hot ones like Jalapenos, wasabi etc…...I also recently decided that Apple Cider Vinegar and Pasta Salad are the best combo ever.

 

What is the dumbest way you have ever been injured?

I broke my arm climbing off bunk beds while playing Murder in the dark with my brothers.

 

What is your most unusual talent?

Hmmm I make a mean sand village at the beach. Is that a talent?

 

Do you have any superstitions?

Nope, not superstitious at all.

 

If you could jump into a pool full of something, what would it be?

Chocolate. Without a doubt, chocolate.

 


So who would have guessed it!? Now we all know secret bird-loving Kowen just a little more.

Stay tuned for our next instalment of Getting to Know You!

10 Top Tips for Drinking More Water

June 12, 2020

Now the weather is cooling down, I know for a fact that I’m not drinking anywhere near enough water! (Despite owning the most beautiful bottles ever)

So yesterday I put it to you guys to share YOUR top tips for drinking more water!

I was so surprised to see so many of you in exactly the same boat and the cooler weather making it even more tricky to keep up that water intake. And just as an FYI we should be drinking around 2L of water every day (or 3-4 Original Bottles worth!)


Here are some of the tips I loved and will be giving a go!

  1. Set a reminder every hour. Whether that be on your smartwatch, an outlook reminder or phone alarm (basically whatever will remind you to take a big ol’ swig of water!)
  2. Having a glass before every meal or snack (win-win, if you are a big snacker like me!)
  3. Adding lemon or lime to your water - because everyone likes a hint of zest in their day.
  4. Use a straw - funny but it seems easier to sip than pick up a bottle!
  5. Drink from a smaller bottle so it feels more achievable (I tried this today and it’s a winner, pat on the back at the end of each bottle #WellDone!)
  6. When the weather is cooler, drink warm or room temperature water.
  7. Or the opposite, you might prefer your water icy - in which case add ice cubes!
  8. Infusion tea! An added boost of flavour to your water.
  9. Post-it note - right in front of your face as a reminder LOL
  10. The BEST tip (of course!) have a pretty bottle, just like MontiiCo


I’d love to hear if you give any of these a go and if they work for you!
