I got whisked off to Paris for the weekend, it's every girls dream, still a little shocked that it happened. Rather than upload 20 photographs I am just leaving it to the one, the one I like the most...
There are two of me! Well almost, my
sister is a few years younger but just as creative, Ali's niche is making
products. Fed up of products affecting her skin and reading some of the crazy
things that companies put in them these days she now makes her own. Everything
from body scrub to shampoo she has made it, I am a convert, love everything she
makes, and what’s better, it doesn't leave you with a massive hole in your
We have making sessions every now and
then, I'm usually in charge of labels (a very important job - I like to think
of it as product design), and Ali sets to work in the kitchen. I wanted to
share some of our images with you! I am looking to set her up to sell online so
any feedback would be greatly welcome.
Vital ingredients... Essential oils,
all the scents you need to make the products smell great.
Product 1 - Body Scrub
This was the first product I think she ever made, so has perfected it over time. It works great with a zesty flavour in there.
Adding some of that important Vitamin E Oil
Adding the Calendula Petals
Basket of goodies
Product 2 - Lip balm
This is my favourite at the moment, especially with the cold weather setting in! A variety of flavours although I love the Vanilla.
Mixing everything together.
Waiting for them to set.
The finished product.
We are going to be
selling these along with a few others at a local craft stall in Wootton (near
Abingdon). We would love any feedback that you are able to offer us as we are
hoping to set up a website soon as well.
October has been an interesting
month, from pumpkins to mud runs and organising several photoshoots. I saw some
great live music at Turl Street kitchen and ate some awesome waffles at
G&D's! It's getting colder though so the warm fluffy coats are coming out. Let’s
hope the snow stays away...
