But other than birthing babies.......
To say this week hasn't been just a TAD crazy would be understatement of the year! You may remember in last weeks round up that baby was happily staying put.... well not for long!
Baby Grace (or Baby Chase as my son likes to call her!) entered the world with a bang just a couple of days later! She took us all a little by surprise, nearly being born in the car as we almost didn't make it to the hospital in time, but again, another story for another day!
It feels amazing to welcome another girl to the Scentful Wax Team (#girlpower), and I know she'll become part of the scenery in the shop for the early part of her life at least! As soon as she can, she'll be on the team pouring, wrapping and sniffing out new scents with me to add to the range.... whether she likes it or not! :)
But other than birthing babies, there is SO SO much going on at Scenful Wax, it's hard to know where to begin!
1. Spring Has Sprung
With this insanely beautiful weather, and the date we've ALL been waiting for where we can begin to see loved ones again, April's subscription box could not be MORE appropriately named. Aprils scents are set to be BEA-Uties!
- Bluebell Woods
- Sunshine Days
- Pear Drops
Can you think of five more perfect scents to celebrate this sunshine, Easter weekend and the easing of lockdown?
My absolute favourite from this range is the Energise fragrance. I actually burnt this scent whilst I was in labour - it certainly helped energise baby!!
It's inspired by the Clarin's Eau De Energize fragrance, which is a beautiful citrus-sy, uplifting and invigorating scent! It's honestly PERFECT for this time of year!
And Bluebell Woods cannot be better named, it is STUNNING!
The team have been incredible at getting this months subscription boxes packed and ready (all 200 of them!) and they are almost all prepped and ready to leave the doors early on Thursday morning.
If you haven't ordered yours yet - make sure you order before midnight tomorrow for Thursday dispatch >> https://scentfulwax.co.uk/products/scentful-wax-monthly-subscription-box
2. 13 days left...
The 29th March roadmap date (yay!) has come and gone, and I think we all have that long anticipated hope that lockdown is starting to lift. And that means it is really not long now until our Leigh on Sea store is open again!
The poor little thing would have been shut for a whopping 113 days (I'm going to ignore the superstitious thirteen reference there and take the luck from it instead!) by the time it reopens, so we are giving it a tonne of TLC at the moment to get it back to it's beautiful former self!
NEW display units to fit all our new scents, NEW burners, NEW domes, NEW signage - we're spoiling it rotten!
For any of our local lovelies - are there any scents that you guys think we HAVE to have out? Or are you just excited to get into the shop to start having a sniff of all the newbies?
Our Store Manager Kim is the MOST excited of us all - she cannot wait to start seeing all you guys again for a wax chat! For anyone who hasn't met Kim yet, she is the most amazing wax melt lover who loves a good old catch up, and NEEDS her daily dose of wax chat to keep her batteries charged! She'll be ready and waiting!
Black Cherry, Fairy Dust, Red Raspberry, Gorgeously Guilty and Pixie Fluff were all restocked over the weekend, PLUS a load of Large Slabs and Tubs (Snow Queen, Baby Powder, Bakewell Tart....)! We are doing our best to get scents as stocked up as humanly possible ready for opening, which means lots of wrapping and lots of stock filling to get our bums in gear and ready for you guys!
On the list over the next few days: Warm Vanilla Sugar | Seaweed Spa | Izzy Moments
We hope you are all able to spend some much needed and well deserved time with friends, family or loved ones now we are 'allowed'.
I'm sending out a humongous virtual pat on the back to every single person reading this who has dealt with the past year! We are ALMOST there guys, hang in there!
& The Scentful Wax Team (and Baby Grace!)
