Major News – Cards, Cosmetics, Candles but No Coffee!
Time for some pretty major news, in a few areas, not just for me, but for others as well…
First of all, I think we should start off with the most major news and that is that Phoenix Trading is effectively no more. It wasn’t a business I particularly “worked” as such, but I did like their products as did ALL of my customers.
The people I feel most empathy for were the ones who focused all their energy only on Phoenix. They will be effected the most. The good news is that there are already plans a foot to re-launch a new business, but I have decided to effectively bow out.
Besides, I can still get any cards I’d like via my upline Janet who I suspect will be a part of the new company.
In the mean time, you can pick up some deals in the “Closing Down Sale” over on my Phoenix Shop.
Additionally, ALL MY CARDS here in Glasgow are £1.00 in a flash sale sort of vein. I probably have about 100 cards here from all occasions so let me know if you want in on the bargain cards! 🙂
New Younique Products
I am so pleased to say that Younique has brought out a new mascara…It’s normal one called Epic which I hear is just that. Have just ordered one for myself so I will let you know in a future blog just how epic it is. 🙂 In addition to the new Moodstruck Epic Mascara there is also a new lash serum too. You can get those two items, plus the flagship 3D Fiber Lashes Plus– together in a bundle called the Moodstruck Ultimate Lash Trio. When you get that bundle you save some money which is always a bonus.
Speaking of Bundles. The August 2017 Customer Kudos is called The Younique Foundation Bundle and is for a really good cause – the Younique Foundation. What comes in the Foundation Bundle?
- Moodstruck Splash Liquid Lipstick in Secure
- Splurge Cream Shadow in Cherished
- Moodstruck Powder Blush in Supported
Note: All proceeds from this very special bundle will be donated to The Younique Foundation, an organization that inspires hope in women who were sexually abused as children or adolescents by providing healing services through retreats, survivor communities, and online resources.
Coffee No More
There is also news on the Neart Coffee front. For those who don’t know, I was going to launch my own brand of coffee which was called Neart. It was going to be “roasted and posted directly to you from the Scottish Highlands”… but now that coffee brand is now firmly parked in the “long term car park of ideas”.
It really just never quite felt right and I had to let it go to make way for something else to come in.
There really were just so many issues with logistics.
I am still convinced the idea is good and am proud of what I achieved but it was just not quite there. There may be something to say about that later on down the road, and there may not.
So what it did end up making way for was Candles…
For those who are like me, and basically love smelly things, such as candles, wax melts, diffusers, scented beads et al, then you’ll dig this.
I recently joined Darceys Candles.
Darceys is an Ayrshire-based company that makes handmade soy candles and wax melts in particular. The idea, like many other direct sales companies is to have people host parties (both real and virtual), but regular readers to my blog will know I don’t go in for that sort of thing.
I know they work for some people but not so much for me.
I do have some brochures – which I need to get circulating – and I’ll blog about them from time to time, but that’ll be the extent of my efforts for Darceys Candles.
That said a week ago I posted the special offer of the week on my FB profile and three people nabbed it…so I may end up working Darceys more yet, we’ll see. They’re top selling product is called Monkey Farts…which smells a whole lot better than it sounds. Seriously,…
Oh, and speaking of which, please note that we can only order products once a week, because they are all handmade…So if you’re in or near Glasgow, and would like to order some Darceys, then please let me know and I’ll throw your order in with one of my own bundles.
You can phone me on 0141 416 1492, email me here, or leave a comment.
Finally one last bit of news if you can call it that is that I have created a new brand all about my father (and best friend) Ralph. It’s called Ralph Says Things (his own hashtag is #Ralphsays),…
