What's NEW in the New Year? Just about everything!

Now that we are taking a short break for the holidays to recharge our batteries and take advantage of this special time of year to see family and friends and just generally have a relaxing holiday.  I've had a little time to reflect on what I would like to do with SO many ideas I've had since August but no time to put them into play.

Well, now's the time to make a few changes!  First to change are the WEBSITE and ETSY Shop.  Some changes will be subtle and some will be much more noticeable.  In the ETSY Shop, I'll be mostly just updating photos and descriptions and shipping charges (some were not up to date since the Post Office raised their rates last year) but also adding some new things and just some general cleaning up. 


The more noticeable changes will be on the Website.  I've been keeping a close eye on what scents/fragrances sell for what types of products.  Because of the data I've collected regarding my own line, I've decided that the best way to display products is to have them listed individually for every product in each category.  THIS way, certain scents that sell best as Soaps and Deodorants won't be available as Roll-On Perfumes or Body Mists, and items that sell best as Body Mousse and Silky Body Lotions won't be available as Shaving Bars or Whipped Soaps.  Now these are just examples and I did not compile a list of anything just yet officially.  I'm going to start by listing what I have IN STOCK and adding on from there.  This will be better for inventory and special scents especially and for seasonal products as well!  But DON'T WORRY - I'm not getting rid of any of the current scents - but I will be adding a few of the old ones back in!!!  I took a poll not to long ago of what scents you missed the most and it was clear to me that some fragrances needed to be brought back but maybe just not in every product! 

I'm sad to say that there will be a slight price increase for several products beginning February 1st.  I noticed in October that several of my supplies had gone up in price but I wasn't sure how it affected the current pricing because I had not had time to sit down and go over all the costs - which I will be doing over the next week. 

Those are just a few of the things I will be trying to accomplish over the next week or two.  So, if you are reading this feel free to post here or on the Facebook Page of what scents you'd like to see in what products!!

Fragrance List Changes.....

Oh hello there! Is it obvious how much I neglect this poor blog?  *sigh* I always say I'll do better but here we are again.... 3months have gone by with not a word.  I have no excuse so I'll just try to do better in the future! 

Ok - so here's the news.  I took an extended vacation (2 1/2 weeks - woo woo).  It was greatly needed I swear!  Running your own business can sometimes be a never ending and overwhelming experience.  It got to the point earlier this year where I was barely sleeping and starting to lose my patience within my household (unacceptable) so I took a break.  It's been VERY nice.  I got some much needed remodeling done and some organizing too.  We joked because our Spring Cleaning happened in Summer - but at least it happened!! 

During my little hiatous, I realized that I could not possibly be a one woman show and offer 59 different deodorants.  It was simply too much to keep up with.  SO, earlier this week, I decided to cut back dramatically on my scent list.  For the rest of August I'll be stocking 27 scents total on a regular basis and as of the first week in September that number will drop to 18 (5 of which will be Men's scents). 

While I know some of you will be upset by the change in scents, please know that I'm NOT discontinuing these scents forever!!!  I'll be adding a Custom Order form to my site where you can contact me and request a certain scent (if I don't have it on the regular list) and order products like, Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars, Soaps, Whipped Soap and Samples in bulk form.  Products such as Deodorants, Perfumes, Mists, Body Mousse, Body Polish, Silky Body Lotion will also be available as individual products but in larger sizes.  More info on that next week after I finish updating the website. 

SO I'm sure you're all curious as to what the new scent list is, so without further ado, here you go:

*Aloe & Summer Herbs – Wild summer herbs, aloe, water lily, jasmine and touch of soft woods
Black Raspberry - Tart raspberries and warm vanilla
Bourbon Vanilla - A wonderful, natural baked-goods vanilla scent with spicy rum and a warm buttery overtones
*Butterfly Kisses - Citrus, peaches, berries and white musk
Chocolate Cupcake – Freshly baked devil’s food cake topped with chocolate icing
Cold Beer (Shaving Soap Only) - Ice cold malt liquor with a honey nutty note mixed in with hops and a little kick of fruit sweetness
Eucalyptus & Spearmint - Refreshing eucalyptus and minty spearmint
*Green Tea & Cucumber - Crisp cucumber and refreshing green tea
Island Girl – Tropical and exotic plumeria
Laundry Day (Deodorant Only) - Inspired by the fresh scent of clothes just taken in off the line, a clean blend of lily notes with vanilla, citrus and musk
Lavender Honey - A fresh lavender scent blended with sweet and mouth-watering wild honey notes
*Lemon Cupcake – Mouthwatering tangy sweet aroma of cake, lemon and vanilla
*Margarita - Lip puckering lime and tequila blended perfectly with a dash of salt! It is 5 o'clock somewhere right?! Very refreshing and a great summer scent!!!
Miss Ruby - A seductive blend of pomegranate, red berries, a dash of spices, citrus and creamy warm vanilla
Oatmeal, Milk & Honey - Warm honey, buttery milk and hot oatmeal
Ocean Waves - A gorgeous day at the beach complete with sand, sun, sea spray and that crisp salty scent only the ocean can provide.
*Patchouli Mint - Patchouli essential oil and the fresh scent of Moroccan Mint. If you are a Patchouli lover or a fan of the Patchouli Mint French Green Clay Facial Bar that we carry, you're going to love this stick!
Pink Cupcake - Delicious whipped, sugary pink buttercream frosting on top of a fresh-from-the-oven vanilla cupcake
Pink Sugar - notes of sugary lemon drops and pink cotton candy. A fruity-floral middle of red fruit, fig leaves, caramel and raspberry leads to a sweet vanilla-musk base.
*Pumpkin Pie - A delicious blend of buttery, flaky crust and sweet creamy pumpkin fabulously spiced with cinnamon, clove and rum
*Summertime - Raspberries, peaches, summer florals other citrus notes
Tahitian Dreams - An amazingly warm and earthy combination of Sandalwood and Coconut with a touch of sweet Vanilla! It is an amazing scent that is becoming a Best Seller!!
Warm Embrace - Warm amber blended with a hint of ginger and light florals
*Watermelon Taffy - A salt water taffy in a sugary fresh watermelon scent. It is sure to invoke feelings of a warm summer day on the beach. This mouth-watering fragrance is fresh and sweet and smells like summertime
Men’s Scents
Caspian - This masculine scent possesses a blend of lavender, jasmine, oakmoss, musk and sandalwood
Esquire - This warm, woody and energized masculine scent contains a blend of tangy citrus like bergamot, mandarin and lemon accompanied by notes of cactus flower and exotic woods
Kaleidoscope - Lavender, fresh bergamot, and sexy leather accords, with a masculine musk and sandalwood
Malaki - A sharp, spicy blend of lavender, citrus, spicy berries and sandalwood
Metro - Spicy citrus blend of bergamot, tangerine, pepper, cinnamon, bamboo, sage, sequoia wood, vetiver & musk
*Will only be available through August.

It's Tuesday March 5th and the snow is falling - wait that can't be right it's March right?  It's seems that old man winter is not letting go just yet!  But that's ok - there is a reason I like winter (but only one) there is nothing that I can do outside!  This means that all winter long I work on nothing but new products, promotions, scent combos and of course future products and ideas!!  Hence the new website... :)

One of the new promotions that I've come up with recently is the PRODUCT OF THE WEEK (POTW for short) deal that kicked off yesterday!  Now, before I tell you this weeks POTW here's the fine print:
  • POTW's begin around 7:00am CST every Monday morning and end the following Monday or when inventory is out.
  • I will send a newsletter every Saturday or Sunday announcing the new POTW for the upcoming week.  I will also post it on the blog on Tuesdays.
  • The POTW's are only valid on the new website and NOT in the Etsy Shop
  • You can combine any coupon codes/other discounts with the POTW and save even more.
  • POTW's are NOT valid on custom orders and are good on retail orders only.
  • POTW's can be any product of my choosing and/or a group of products - but feel free to cast a vote on Facebook or here and let me know what POTW you'd like to see offered! 
Now, onto the unveiling of the POTW:

Any Size Body Polish Sugar Scrubs

Use before spray tanning for a more even tanning experience.  Scrub a little into your scalp for flake free hair then shampoo!  My favorite 2 tricks for our Body Polish are using before shaving (wow - silky smooth legs like you would not believe) AND getting rid of those bumps on the backs of your arms!!  Try some today and feel the difference!!

Website Grand Opening!

Oh am I excited about this!! The Grand Opening of the NEW website will be this afternoon!!! Sunday, February 10th the website will launch and a coupon code for 15% Off your order will be on the home page of the site! The coupon code will be good until the end of February but can only be used once per customer!

In addition to the Grand Opening Sale, look for bunches of discounts, promos, giveaways and more through the entire month of March as we celebrate our 7 Year Anniversary! I could not be more excited!!! 7 years ago I sold my very first bar of soap at a craft show and it still feels like just yesterday! :)

Now, so there's no worries, I DO NOT plan on closing the Etsy Shop anytime soon! I plan on keeping it open as for quite some time. There will be a limited number of items in it and probably a lesser variety than what is carried on the website! My goal will be to eventually have a very limited number of items in the Etsy Shop and have the majority of products on the website by the end of the year!

I'm excited about the new website because not only is it much easier to maintain from my end (updating, printing orders etc) but it has a lot of wonderful features! You can register so you can keep track of all your orders and make checking out easier, leave reviews for every product, check your orders status, make a wish list, purchase gift certificate and more!!

Plus, you can PIn products to Pinterest, Share them via Facebook and/or Tweet them on Twitter!!!

I can't wait for you to check it out!! In fact, go have a look around now!

A Year in Review

In all honesty, I have no idea how to thank you all for this year!  And I don't just mean the sales figures either!  I mean sticking with me and supporting me while I arranged and rearranged and rearranged scents, products, descriptions, websites, shops, newsletters, blogs etc over and over again! 

Your support and encouragement this past year gave me the confidence to expand and grow even more!  I have met some AMAZING people this year and I am extremely lucky!!!  Since taking over Spa Therapy's line in January 2012 it has been a whirlwind - all good things of course!!!

I am truly blessed to have the greatest customers on the face of the planet!  2013 is sure to be another amazing year and I hope to build and grow even more as a business and as a person.

One of the things I like to tell myself and my kids is that "There is ALWAYS room for Improvement"  I shall never assume I know everything about my craft, otherwise there is nothing left for me to learn - therefore, no way for me to improve or expand.  Evolving as a business (in my mind) is an essential way to keep things fresh and most importantly FUN!

So with that, I promise to make 2013 VERY fun and fresh!!  I will always provide you with awesome customer service, fresh products, specials and the very BEST line of products that I can give you! 

I'm not sure what this year will bring but I am so excited about it!!  THANK YOU for giving me the opportunity to do what I love to do and supporting me this far!  If it weren't for your patronage and support, I wouldn't be where I am today!!!
