We were really excited to celebrate our launch on 6th October at a fun-filled event with a host of bloggers, suppliers and customers at the wonderful Lazy Lounge in Leeds. Guests had the opportunity to see our first gift boxes: The Treat, The Glam and The Lush, and try out some of the products, as well as treating themselves to a glass of fizz, a bag (or three) of pick and mix and cupcakes aplenty on our Treat station!
On our Lush station, we gave our guests the chance to design their ideal gift and win a Lush box, and there were some fantastically creative ideas, including a hump day box, a camping box, lots of crafty ideas and even a mermaid-themed box! The winning box was designed by the lovely Rhianna of Robowecop, who included a cheese board, a bottle of gin and a kitten – yes a kitten! – in her dream box. Coming to a gift box near you soon?!
On our Glam station, guests could try out Mrs Cross’ Nail Shop new AutumNAIL colours, as well as the stunningly glittery Gilded Romantic shade found in our Glam box. And for those guests feeling even more glam, there was a range of nail transfers and gems to add.
There was also a sneak peek at our Minimalist Box, which is currently under development – we’ll share it with you soon! And Ivy Lace London, who designed our exclusive martini-glass bracelets in The Lush gift box, sent some beautiful jewellery to display, which went down a storm.
Guests were loving the scents of The Yorkshire Soap Company's fabulous bath bombs and candles, and it was great to meet Cecily and her sister Dorrie from Sweet Cecily’s who supply all of the deliciously boozy lip balms in our boxes, as well as Kathryn from traditionalheart, who we hope to work with on some future boxes.
Our lucky guests left with a goody bag, featuring our popular Thanks I Love It Gin / Gym tote bag, information on our charity partner Women’s Aid, a discount code for their first gift box purchase and some tasty Doisy & Dam chocolate.
