Roll into Autumn happy

'As seen in VOGUE'

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.

Edinburgh Festival a go-go

Festival a go-go

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 🍫
JustBe Loved chocolate & JustBe Active herbal tea both received a Great Taste Award 🌟
And the winner of the #edfringeinyourmouth photo competition went to this tropical snap of JustBe Fringe Fresh Spearmint bar chillin' in Bali 📸

Summer Celebrations

It's time to celebrate summer

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 🌟

Join us at the Foodies Festival, Edinburgh on Saturday the 5th of August 4.30-5.30pm within the Lululemon enclosure.

Just Because

Just Because...

it's the last day of June doesn't mean that it necessarily feels like Summer! It's been raining almost non-stop for the last couple of days here in Edinburgh - although the sunshine featured in the snaps received for our JustBe Fringe chocolate competition have been keeping us going. If you'd like to enter and be in with a chance of winning a JustBe hamper, simply send us your snaps featuring the new Fringe chocolate bars before the end of August or use the #EdFringeInYourMouth on Instagram 📸 Here are some of our favourites so far:
