A couple of months ago I posted on Instagram that I was being selected as a Soulmate aka brand ambassador of Soul, well with this post I want to share that my time as a soulmate is coming to an end, but before I would like to say a couple words to Soul and to all of you.
Before I start, Soul is a brand of baby carries from India, that make not only quality and beautiful handmade baby carriers but accesible to all kinds of pockets and bodies, yes I said bodies, but I’ll talk about that later on this post.
In January/February this year I wanted to buy a ring sling, because I didn’t had one at the time, I looked at different brands and of course I looked for an accesible price; I’m a stay at home mom, so my budget is limited, but because it was taxes season I had the extra to invest in a couple of baby carrier for my stash, I’ve been building my stash since 4 years ago, and I really wanted to own a ring sling; I browse thru different webpages looking for the perfect ring sling, for me it was a great price with a great quality, I found two brands that had a design that I liked and the price plus both brands have excellent reviews not only on the website I was looking at but in the babywearing groups on Facebook, I decided I wanted a Soul ring sling and I’m not regretting that decision.
When I first got my ring sling I asked in their support group a couple of questions and let me tell you it make me felt more in love with the brand, because everybody was and is so nice and supportive, the atmosphere in the group is so welcoming, bu let’s talk a little bit about the ring sling:
I got a maze blues, the quality was great since I took it out of the cotton bag that it came with, the material was already soft and ready to use, if I wanted to use it before washing it I could do it, because the majority of the baby carriers from Soul came ready to use; I decided to try it without washing it because it was my first ring sling and I was so anxious, when I tried I loved it at the instant, it was easy to thread thru the rings and very comfy, plus the design was so pretty in person even more than in photos, I fell in love with the brand and I wished I could own more of their carriers, but I knew it will take me some time, little did I knew that that wish will be true in a couple of months.
I can’t remember exactly the day I saw a post in the Soul Facebook group about Soul looking for the next new soulmates, I was so excited when I saw it, I didn’t know if apply for it or not, especially because this blog was growing little by little, and is still growing and because this blog is written in Spanish, I don’t have a big number of following and so many other thoughts but I wanted to try, “you don’t lose nothing for trying” I said to myself, so I applied with my little numbers and my little Spanish blog.
The day I saw that message I couldn’t believe it, I was in shock and so happy, I was being selected as a Soulmate, being able to represent a brand that you love is a great feeling and opportunity and the best part they approve my Spanish blog.
Soul has been proving to be a brand that cares for their customers, I’ve learn so much about them in this months, they make their products locally in India, employing women’s and local artisans and paying them the fair amount for their job, they also care about diversity, their carriers are made in a way that can fit very type of body, just a couple of months ago, for example, they announce that they will be making bigger sizes for their wraps and the ring slings will also be available in different sizes, they care about all of us and that makes me love Soul even more.
For me this opportunity has been full of learning, I know I didn’t gave my best as a soulmate but this experience is giving me the confidence to continue my babywearing journey, one of my goals for this 2018 is becoming a certified babywearing consultant and keep giving more information about babywearing in Spanish.
Thank you so much Soul for been a great brand, , thank you for this opportunity, I hope we can work again in the future together.
Thank you to all my fellow soulmates for all your tips and support, it’s been a pleasure.
