#avocafeeling with The Gloss: Week 7

Nov 19, 2020

How are you feeling today? Do you have that #AvocaFeeling?

We’re delighted to have partnered with The Gloss for a fabulous new content series all about what gives us that #avocafeeling! Kicking off our brand new Christmas campaign which is centred around the wonder and joy of the little things, we’d love for you to join in and let us know on social - what are the little things that bring you joy, and evoke that #avocafeeling for you? We’re all about finding and celebrating daily rituals and little pleasures that keep us afloat, in particular in these current challenging times. Whether it’s your morning cup of coffee, sea swimming, forest walking or curling up with your favourite book and throw, we’d love to hear how you find joy in the little things.

Next up in this series is Hannah, our Assistant Food Buyer. In her interview with The Gloss, Hannah speaks about the joy of food, especially during lockdown. She says. 

'Food plays a huge part in bringing joy to our lives during challenging times. A lot of socialising and celebrating centres around food. Although we can’t meet for birthday dinners or morning coffees, there is still joy to be found in rituals like baking and cooking. This was particularly evident from looking at our empty flour shelves at the end of each day during March and April! It’s always rewarding creating something, be it a painting or a bit of DIY, but it’s even better when you can eat it after! From banana bread to fresh pasta, everyone seemed to be jumping on the baking and cooking trend and it’s such a joy to see.'

When asked what brings her that #avocafeeling around Christmas time, Hannah says, 'There are so many little things about Winter that I find joyful; home comforts from cosy knitwear to getting lost in a good T.V series by a crackling fire. I would have to say that for me, I get that #avocafeeling from the yearly ritual of tucking into a mince pie every day of December!

It’s been a challenging year, and the team and I have been so busy ensuring our food markets remained fully stocked for our customers. With organising new collection and delivery services too, it’s been so busy, and I’m definitely looking forward to spending some quiet time with my family over the Christmas period. I think recent times have taught us to really cherish the simple things in life that we once might have took for granted. I love our imagery for this year’s Christmas campaign, as I think it serves as a lovely reminder of this.'

Don't forget, we’d love to hear what gives you that #avoacfeeling too so please share it with us! Follow @theglossmag and @avocaireland and share your little joys with us using #avocafeeling.
