Can't quite believe that it's the last day of January already. The start of the year can often be a time of hibernation: reflecting and considering the year ahead - although not this year at JustBe. In addition to having workmen in for 3 weeks to create a new workspace in the loft, this has been our busiest January ever!
News of the Gin Spa in Glasgow has gone viral with numerous publications including Condé Naste, and Professional Beauty generating over 10+ million views. I'm looking forward to being part of the sold out 'Discovering the Gin Spa' event on the 4th of February.
Looking forward to the year ahead, I attended a Lululemon #18in18 goal setting workshop a couple of weeks ago and wrote down 18 goals, which I'm genuinely excited about. If you've never written down your plans, I'd highly recommend taking the time. Exceptional simple and effective.
Over the years, I've been asked numerous times for an eye treatment. I've just started work on developing a new caffeinated eye cream / serum. More information to follow.
As we journey into February, I would like to wish you a very happy year and invite you to ask yourself 'if not now, when?' Now is always a great time to get clear about what you want and be happy.
With just over a week to go, wanted to take the opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas. It's been a busy time with Festive Fairs and online orders. If you unwrap some JustBe this year, we'd love if you tag or share your gifts with us. Monday is our last day for guaranteed delivery.
If you're in need of some pre Christmas pampering or some last minute gin-spa-ration, I can highly recommend booking into the UK's first gin inspired botanical spa in Glasgow. I'm delighted that The Gin Spa have chosen to work exclusively with JustBe Botanicals for the body treatments and nourishing facials. The Gin Spa packages include Botanical Bliss and Just The Tonic. I met the talented team of therapists at the end of November for the JustBe therapist training and visited again this week and could happily have moved in.
Having been shortlisted for 3 Beauty Awards with OK! Magazine, I attended a star studded ceremony at Tower of London at the end of November and I'm thrilled that JustBe received 2 Highly Commended Awards for our Eye Makeup Remover and Happy Hand & Body Wash.
Create your perfect Christmas gifts with our bespoke hamper service. Simply email email@example.com with your budget, a little bit about who its's for (e.g. sister, friend) and any items from the JustBe range that you'd like included (skincare, candle, chocolate, tea etc) and we'll send back snaps of a few options to help you decide.
Thanks to everyone who's voted for us in this years Beauty Awards with OK! Looking forward to the award ceremony on the 28th of November.
We've been preparing for the Christmas Fair season which starts in earnest this weekend. Details of all the events can be found on our Facebook page.
The latest addition to our gift range are the new engraved JustBe keyrings as seen in this months Edison of i-on magazine.
I'm delighted that JustBe Happy rollerball has been featured in the 'Mood Booster' section of VOGUE's October issue. JustBe Happy remains our most popular scent and for those looking to enhance their sense of wellbeing, rollerballs aka 'aromatherapy on the go' are a great way of achieving this. "Happiness doesn't have to be complicated. We have a primeval sense of what's good for us. A few minutes washing with a therapeutic shower gel can set you on a different path for the whole day."
Just in: engraved heart shaped keyrings - ideal for all 'key occasions'. Each keyring has the JustBe logo on one side, and can be personalised up to a maximum of 9 characters on the other. Along with a bar of JustBe chocolate, these make a thoughtful gift: something to keep and something to each. In addition to our signature blends: Happy, Loved, Tranquil etc, I think JustBe Merry may prove popular as stocking fillers & secret santa's.
Whilst the Festive season may feel like a while away, especially on such a warm and sunny afternoon, I'll share the events that we're attending in next months newsletter. I also have exciting news about new outlets.
Wishing you an Autumn bursting with happiness.
Delighted to be supporting MacMillian Coffee Morning at Badger & Co, Edinburgh with some raffle prizes.
August is always a fun filled month in Edinburgh especially when you live, work and love the Fringe as much as I do. The city plays host to the biggest arts festival in the world and with over 50,000 performances spread across every genre, there really is something for everyone.
Now in it's 70th year, this years Festival's extra special for me with the launch of the JustBe Fringe chocolates. For those who follow JustBe Botanicals on Instagram, you'll have seen that I've taken the opportunity to share some bars with some well know faces.
Those that I managed to get chocolate to, that wasn't captured on camera included Sir David Attenborough, Russel Brand & Steve Wright (although the chocolates did get a mention on his Radio 2 show that was broadcasted live from Edinburgh 🍫)
i-on magazine featured the Golden Ticket competition. Some of the big prizes have still to be claimed - so there's still time to win 🌟
The winners of this year's JustBe Loved Fringe award went to Secrets Life of Humans for their their amazing theatre piece at the Pleasance Courtyard ❤️
Graeme Norton happened to be waiting to see the same show 🍫
We've had an exciting start to the month with Vogue giving us a call. Twice. On the same day. In relation to the iconic September issue and requesting samples for October edition! There's been a fair amount of travel too with in-store demo's at WholeFoods Giffnock & High Street Kensington stores to support the Gift With Purchase promotion that we're running at 3 stores inc. Piccadilly Circus, during July.
I was also in London for this year's FreeFrom Skincare Awards at Olympia. And was delighted that JustBe Happy Body Butterwas awarded Silver and JustBe Soft Lip Balm received Bronze. The comments from the panel of testers were glowing. This brings the number of accolades for the range up to a total of 14!
A selection of our products were used on Big Brother as part of the Champagne & Pamper reward this week. And if that wasn't enough excitement, the fringe launched the Golden Ticket chocolate competition yesterday: celebrating 70 years, with 70 prizes - more details below.
Looking ahead to next month, we're excited to be part of the program of talks put together by Lululemon for the new zen healthy living area within this year's Foodie Festival in Edinburgh. Join me 4.30-5.30 on Saturday the 5th of August.
Receive a Free 15ml Restoring Cream with any JustBe purchase from WholeFoods during July 🌟
