Ask Me A Question

ASK ME A QUESTION……

My blogs are a way for me to communicate with you all, a place I can share whats happening and if I’ve anything new to tell you. Just like my extra blog I wrote on Saturday……missed that one didn’t you? lol Well guess what? I’ll be throwing in an extra blog from time to time as I want to get people use to checking my blogs daily, to see whats happening and if I’ve shared anything new. I’ve had a social media break this weekend, one that was very much needed, but I had something to share with you all so I decided to do it via my blog and only one person spotted it, but one more than when I first wrote it, I’m still happy as I got one comment on it, now that may change now I’ve mentioned this, but I just wanted to show everyone that you just never know when I may just do a quick blog thats not on a Monday. Now last Monday I didn’t advertise on my business pages that I’d posted my blog as I’ll no longer do this as I feel now I’ve created a pattern one that many will remember automatically that Monday is my main blog day. Now whenever I post my Monday blog it’ll now be at any time throughout the day and as always one of my lovely admin team members Paula will keep track of who’s commenting. So anyway enough of that, here’s more about todays blog……..

Today I thought I’d write a different kind of blog, one where you can ask me a question and one I can hopefully answer. So if you have a question for me then comment on my blog with your question and I shall do my very best to answer it, if its a long answer I may pick to answer it on an upcoming Monday blog, but I shall still let you know by replying so you can watch out for it in weeks to come. I do get asked lots of things, but with you asking me on here, it means thousands of people if not millions…….wishful thinking but hey maybe one day, can actually read them too. The power of social media and getting your story across and questions answered is massive, but blogging even bigger, more can see this as people aren’t as restricted as like they are with social media, not everyone has social media so blogging is a way to reach out to many more people. Blogging also helps your website massively, so the more I reach out to my customers to keep frequently checking my blogs the more it’ll help me be seen.

I often read many blogs on others websites, it gives me more of a personal insight to who and what that business/person is about. I like the personal touch of reading what they want to share with everyone, things they may not share on social media. Blogging’s becoming more and more popular and you don’t have to have a business to blog, anyone can blog. I for one will be blogging more especially when I have social media breaks, so if you don’t see me post on social media then maybe check now and then to see if I’ve done a blog. I wont be blogging every day I have off social media, only really if I have something to share with you all. Now I’m taking a little break from work from the 1st August, I’m not going anywhere I just need 2 weeks off so I can refill my cup…..we can’t pour from an empty cup! I have added a banner to state my closing times, the website will remain open whilst I’m closed, but orders will only leave on my return and in the order the arrived on the website. Once I reopen on the 17th August that will be classed as our first working day and orders will take up to 10 working days to be despatched, it will all depend on how busy the websites been whilst I’m off, but please don’t feel worried about ordering as I still need to keep my business ticking over whilst I’m off. I will be posting to social media, but mainly through Instagram which will go direct to my business page. Also I’ll put a message up on my business page inbox to let people know if they message me i’ll only be checking messages once a week and to use my group to ask my admin team any questions you may have. I will be working one day and that will be to get my monthly subscription boxes out which will be around 7th August possibly the 6th I haven’t decided yet, but you’ll know if you’re a subscriber as you’ll receive your despatch note. I will decide this week as I’ll have to notify Royal Mail of my closing dates as I always cancel my collections when taking a holiday.

I’ll be back to check what questions you’ve asked me later this evening and I hope you all have an amazing week. Don’t forget, from time to time check my blog just in case I write an extra one to share something I’ve added to the website.

Lots of love

      Oh god where’s my favourite place to go on holiday, that’s a tough one. I have to admit though when me and Richard were 40 we went away to Thailand and went to Bangkok for 3 days and then onto Koh Samui for 7 days and it was so beautiful. I’m not a big holiday person, I love being at home, but I’d also love to go to Yellowstone Park one day in the future xx

    Hi Rachel. Long blog today, but a good read. My head has been banging today so just lying on my settee. Just put some wax on to melt to chill me out. Just read you went to Thailand that is on my bucket list. Looks a wonderful place. I also want to go to the Taj Mahal just to sit in the bench princess Diana sat on. I’m planning my next trip to Vegas with my sister we live it, been 4 times. Keep up the good work here Rachel and enjoy your family time off.

    Ooh my question is.. out of all your wax you’ve ever made, what’s been your favourite scent and favourite out of all the different types? Like pod, brittle, buttons etc. Xx

      Rachel says:

      Oh wow what a hard question, if I had to pick just one scent I’d go for Blue Lagoon it was a blend I created which I loved and it was before CLP was in force and blending Was allowed without having legal documentation and then with that I also created unicorn melt which many loved too. Out of all the products I make I think I’d pick brittles, but crumbs would be second. Do you have a favourite scent of mine and what’s your favourite wax product xx

    Great read Rachel. I must admit I’m guilty of being terrible about checking for blogs. I must try harder. 🙈 My question is, if you didn’t have a successful business at being a wax goddess – what would be your ideal job?

    Claire xx ❤

      I’m just grateful you do remember even if it’s not every week. My ideal job if I wasn’t doing this, that’s tough. Actually it would be running a small tea room and baking my own cakes and coming up with some amazing dishes. I love being in the kitchen so if I wasn’t making wax this would be my next ideal business to have xx
