I know, it seems too early to be talking about Christmas, but we are getting ourselves booked in for Christmas events, so we need to get cracking on making products so that we’re ready!
We’ve been busy this weekend ordering supplies and thinking about new products. We love love LOVE cocoa butter, and as we always want to bring you a Caribbean skincare experience, we want to use more Caribbean ingredients, like cocoa butter, so we are working on developing a new skin balm/salve which will include cocoa butter as the main ingredient.
A harder butter than shea butter, cocoa butter is full of skin-loving essential fatty acids, which are often lacking in dry, eczema-prone skin. It is fantastic for healing and fading scars and stretch narks, and smells like chocolate…Watch this space!
It’s official…we’re back from our hols in stunning North Devon! While we didn’t have the heat of Tenerife for our week away in the surfing hotspot of Croyde, we did do lots of sight-seeing and walking and we picked up lots of ideas. Sometimes it helps to just get away from your usual environment to get the creative juices flowing, right?
Now that we’re back, it’s time to start preparing for the busy Christmas season which will be upon us before we know it!
Hope you’re having a great summer!
Apologies if you were expecting to find us at the Chorleywood Village Day in July. In the end we had to cancel because we just needed a break. However, fear not – we will be in Chorleywood later in the year as we are going to have a stall at St Clement Danes School Christmas Fayre on 1st December! The event usually gets around 1,000 visitors and one particular highlight is the BBQ; quite a nice thing to have in the Winter 🙂
Last Saturday we had fun at the Chalfont Crafty Collective Summer Market at St Peter’s Church Hall in Chalfont St Peter. It was probably a bit quieter than usual, but it was still fairly busy and we had plenty of interest at our stall. There were some nice goodies on offer at the pop-up cafe, including some lovely cakes and mini sausage rolls!
The next Chalfont Crafty Collective event is the Autumn Market with Macmillan Coffee Morning on Saturday 29th September. In the meantime, we will be outdoors at the Chorleywood Village Day on Saturday 14th July.
We will have a wonderfully scented table full of soaps, body butters, body oils, bath bombs, lavender bags, greeting cards, hemu wood soap dishes, and more 🙂
Hey! We have just about recovered from our stint at Denham Village Fayre on Spring Bank Holiday Monday!
It was our first time there as stall holders (having gone along as punters in 2017) and the organisers made it really easy for us as we didn’t need to bring a table or gazebo, which saves a lot of time in setting up, plus there was free parking 🙂
We were situated between a homeware stall and a plant stall, from which we picked up lots of useful gardening tips.
The weather was really lovely and sunny after the initial overcast sky in the morning and the village was HEAVING with visitors all day.
There was much to enjoy; a great atmosphere, interesting food stalls, crafts, funfair, tombola, a raffle, Morris dancing, all within a picturesque, Midsomer Murders-esque village!
So what’s next?
16th June – Chalfont Crafty Collective Summer Market at St Peter’s Church Hall, Chalfont St Peter, Bucks 11-3
14th July – Chorleywood Village Day, Chorleywood, Herts 10-4
Hope to see you there!
