What a great end to last week to get a fantastic review from the lovely working mum blogger of the year, Kath, who I was lucky enough to meet at the mum and working event. Do your kids steal your skincare?? | Is it wine o’clock yet??
The last few months have been fantastic. Having totally relaxed on an amazing cruise with my kids around the Med and falling in love with Santorini, to return to the wonderful news that Marili Skincare was presented with the prestigious Janey Lee Platinum Award 2015 for ‘Best Natural Kids Product’ for our Strawberry & Honey Hair & Body Wash http://imperfectlynatural.com/platinum-awards-2015/. This is our first award for the brand and I am incredibly proud of our achievement.
Then in September one of our blogger’s reported http://mybeautyjournal.co.uk/ how her daughter with severe eczema was able to use our products without a reaction.
This was followed by a previous video clip sent to me of a little two-year-old saying how our products took her ‘ouchy’ [skin irritation] away. I feel blessed that somehow our products can make a difference in someone’s life, what a pleasure. Please feel free to share your stories about the products on our social media pages, we love to hear about what a difference they’re making to children’s skin.
September had a few more fabulous moments as my favourite Caramel & Honey Hair & Body Wash was shortlisted for two awards, the Pure Beauty Awards and Beauty Awards, as well as a feature in Your Healthy living magazine, Hair Magazine and The Salon. The whole range was shortlisted for another award that we will be announcing soon, so watch this space. Things are getting very busy in the Marili Skincare barn as we gear up for my favourite consumer show, the ‘Ideal Home Show’ in November. I’ve only ever attended this as a consumer so I’m thrilled to now actually have my own stall there. Please do pop by and say hello if you’re attending.
Lastly, but not least I felt incredibly privileged to have been a part of the Mum and Working http://www.mumandworking.co.uk/2015-Awards event this month where I sponsored and presented the award for ‘High Profile Parent of the Year’ to the beautiful and talented Caprice Bourret, an inspiration to working women and parents. It was lovely meeting Caprice – a wonderful person and fantastic role model for business women.
Here’s to warm and cosy evenings ahead – happy Autumn everyone! How will you be spending yours?
