Mother's Day Profiles: Nannette de Gaspé Beaubien
In preparation for Mother’s Day, we at With Love Darling decided to profile different women each week who inspire, innovate and continue to be fantastic role models! Check out our blog at the end of every week to see who we profile next.
This week, we’re focusing on the founder of the Nannette de Gaspé skincare line, Nannette de Gaspé Beaubien herself! Based in Montreal, Nannette launched her restorative masks in 2016, with the goal of helping women of all ages achieve healthy and vibrant skin. An entrepreneur, financial expert, mother, and wife, Nannette is a fantastic example of someone who is continuing to break barriers and achieving her goals, no mater what.
We asked Nannette some questions on self-confidence, goals, and jewelry. Check out her answers!
What, or who, makes you feel your most beautiful?
I feel the most beautiful when I am rested, exercising regularly, eating well and, most importantly, properly caring for my skin. When I look in the mirror and see my face looking, fresh, rested and glowing, I feel beautiful!
What inspires you to be the best person you can be?
I am inspired when I see those around me happy, thriving and knowing that the energy I’m bringing to things can positively impact others and manifest creativity and growth. This will create a ripple effect where happy, energized people will impact those that they touch.
Favourite pieces from With Love Darling?
My initial Disc Necklace with my sons initials, which I carry with me always as a dear reminder of my children. I have also gifted this piece to friends and family.
I also love the animal totems; in particular the Dragonfly Medallion because it bears the message: “Let your inner light shine”. I feel its so important to remember this.
What’s your daily mantra that helps you get through a challenging day?
Every day is a good day, even a bad day is a good day! Stay positive, be grateful and something great is going to happen. If one door closes, another opens.
Who’s someone that inspires you?
My spiritual coach, Kosta Stoyanoff, who redefined his life to help others find their way. Kosta taught me that I had to find my happiness and contentment from within me, not from the people and material things that surrounded me. I began to understand that everything that I have experienced, both good and painful, have been part of my learning, helping me to evolve. I learned that thoughts, feelings, words and actions are energy and that I had a significant role in creating the outcomes in my life. Through a positive approach and appreciation for everything in my life, I can be fulfilled, happy and energized.
Biggest challenge about creating the life you want?
My biggest challenge is to accept that many things are out of my control, that I cannot change situations or people’s behaviours but that I can control my choices... the way I react and how I am effected. In life, it is easy to forget this as I get pulled into the dramas that unfold around me.
Favourite way to unwind after a busy day?
To have a relaxing dinner with my husband (and children when they are home from college) with a great glass of wine, then watching a movie in bed and usually falling asleep before it is over.
