BAINA Founder Anna Fahey
We adore BAINA products & love what this pair of wonderful women are doing- friendship, ambition, fun and success. This month we share a moment with founder, Anna Fahey.
What is your earliest memory of caring for your skin?
I think I was much older than most, if I really think about my skin investment it happened in my early thirties. I became interested in treatments and as a result caring for my skin at home.
What activity do you do which makes you feel most like yourself?
Everything from the day melts away, and leaves me bare, stripped bare to just myself. I do love the quiet, the clarity and the self-discovery when I bathe.
What is the most beautiful word or sound in the world?
The sound of my son giggling with my husband.
What is one of the best or most worthwhile investments you’ve ever made?
I sold my first home and invested the capital into the business. Both of us have completely self-funded the business and its something we are incredibly proud of.
In the last five years, what new belief, behaviour or habit has most improved your life?
Balance. I think I’m still learning this.
In the last five years there has been growth, change and new additions to balance. I have become a business owner, a wife and a mum. Too much energy either way can tip the scales and guilt prevails over the other. I make an effort to carve out time for everything, including myself.

What time of the day do you feel the most energetic and what do you usually do in those moments?
Each day presents a little differently, but if I’m organised enough to walk the dog in the morning, this is where I am able to get some air, space and perspective.
Living in Auckland central we have many small dormant volcanos, which offer 360 degree views of the city and surrounding harbour. Having space like this energises me.
When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, or have lost your focus temporarily, what do you do?
