Monthly Subscription Box

So many of you already are signed up for my monthly subscription box and are lovely receiving these every month. For those of you who haven’t signed up, but would love to know more then be sure to carry on reading……..

Each month you receive 4 x wax pods all new scents, now only one or two of these scents will make my list, the others will be exclusive and won’t be able to be purchased by anyone else. Now some months all four scents will be exclusive, but only now and then this will happen.

Each month your payment will be taken on the same day you took your first box out, you can cancel at anytime after your first box, there’s no tie in at all. You might fancy a little break for a few months and then want to sign up again. Slots will only go live on the website between 1st-3rd of each month, so you’ll need to watch out if you decide to come back.

Each month one lucky person will find a golden ticket in their box, it’ll be hidden so you must look for it, as I don’t no who receives this either so it’s always a complete surprise to me too. We stick it in the box before we pack them with the wax pods in, then they all go in a pile ready for the postage labels to be added. Each month it’s a different amount what you could win and it also has an expiry date and if it’s not claimed before the expiry date the code will be void. So please make it your first job to look if you’ve got the hidden golden ticket. The code will be on the ticket and you must enter the code in the coupon section for your discount, if the codes not used then you’ll need to place another order before it expires.

Also there’s a VIP Facebook group, in this group there’s extra codes added for when I release a new scent from one of the subscription boxes, this code is just for the new scent or scents release from the subscription box and the code usually lasts for one week only. This codes only offered to subscription customers only.

My aim is to reach out as far as I can to many new customers so that they too can subscribe each month to receive a monthly box of wax from me that always smells amazing. Be sure to share with your friends and thank you to those who subscribe each month, I truly am so grateful to you and all those who buy everyday wax from me too. You’ve made what was once a dream come true and that I’ll never forget xx

What’s New This Week

I’ve a few things to share with you all this week what’s new to the website.

 

First up we have the return of the Mother’s Day was buttons, these come with a little message which says……… Mums are like buttons, they hold everything together. We can change the word mum to grandma, auntie, sister etc as we no not everyone has a mum, but you may still want to buy these for a gift for someone who’s had a special place in your heart whilst growing up. The buttons also come in a tin, which then can be reused to store small items in like, pins, paperclips etc

 

I’m also launching my small jars of wax crumbs, these come in a mini glass jar and have wax crumbs in which is equivalent size to my wax pods, but packaged differently and make a lovely little gift. These are just made from batches of wax that we may have a bit left over, but not enough to package up and then they are weighed out and placed in jars. They aren’t available in all fragrances and will just be added to the website as and when we have them. The jars can be recycled by cleaning them out and using them in the home or can just go in the recycle bin.

 

We like to make sure as much as of our packaging can be reused again in the home or if not it’s either compostable or recyclable as we like to make sure we do our bit for the environment.

Soy Wax Brittles

How To Use Soy Wax Brittles

 

Many customers ask…..whats the different between brittles and pods? The only difference is, is its poured into different shaped moulds. Its made the same, its smells the same and its melted the same, just some customers preferrer brittles over pods. I find that many new customers go for pods first and then if they find a scent they love they then buy it in the bigger bags of brittles.

My brittles come in kraft sealed bags, i don’t heat seal the bag shut as theres no need to so this means that you do not need to rip the tab off the top. Simply just pull the packet open meaning that you can reseal it much easier, I’ve often shared this way in my wax group https://www.facebook.com/groups/850232061701698/?ref=bookmarks

In each bag of brittle theres wax that will last you weeks, simply take one piece out and i always say break a bit off around 15-20g  and add to your burner, then as its melting if you feel you need a little bit more then add smaller amounts until you’re happy. Adding smaller amounts like this will mean you wont waste wax and wont over fill your warmer. I always say……less is more!

Each scent is carefully poured into the mould and then decorated, the decoration may vary per batch as sometimes i may change the colour slightly. Each batch is recorded in my file so i always no when i made that scent and how many bags i was able to get from it.  Once the brittle is set i remove the whole slab and then break up into chunks and these are weighed and put into boxes. I’ve had customers in the past order a whole slab, this is possible but the slab doesn’t come in one piece as  it would break when posted out….many of my customers say they’d love to break a whole slab up as it looks so relaxing when they’ve watched me do it. They are right, theres just something about it that really relaxes you and it also leaves your hands feeling soft and smelling amazing too.

If you want to catch me making brittles you’ll sometimes be able to on Wax Making Wednesday, i try and go live once a month to show my customers what I’m making and they actually love to see me making products. I make wax every day, but Wednesdays i make products for the whole day as i need one full day each week to be able to keep my stock levels up.

 

Be sure to follow me on my business page if you don’t already so that you can watch out for my next Wax Making Wednesday which will actually be this coming Wednesday 12th February 2020 https://www.facebook.com/www.littleideaswithlove.co.uk/

I’ll share on my business page on the Wednesday morning what time i’ll go live, but don’t worry if you miss it as you can always watch me later on replay. Now i wonder what scent i’ll make with you all? Is there one you’d love to see me make up?

Thank you so much for reading my Monday Blog and next week i’ll share with you things that are coming up in the months ahead!

Have a sparkly evening!

Subscription Monthly Themed Surprise Boxes

Monthly Surprise Subscription Box

Subscription Monthly Themed Surprise Boxes

Due to very popular demand between me and my website designer……well more him really we’ve set up the subscription that you can now signup to receive my monthly themed surprise boxes! this means you’ve no more stress of waiting for them to go live and every month you can sit back and relax and wait for the box to arrive. https://www.littleideaswithlove.co.uk/product/monthly-surprise-box-subscription/

So how does it work i hear you all say?

Simply click on the link which will take you to the subscriptions, purchase your first one and then every month your payment will be taken from your card and i’ll send your themed box out. so for example if you sign up before the end of this month November you’ll receive the Christmas Eve box in December, then your December payment will come out and you’ll then receive my January themed surprise box and so on and so on until you give us a 30 day notice to cancel. you can cancel at anytime, but please note this is a 30 days cancelation period. So for example if you sign up on the 12th of the month, your following payment will come out the following month on the 12th and so on and so on.

Each theme is different and whats in side the boxes is a surprise, but i always pick mainly new scents and from time to time you may receive a couple of scents in your box thats from my scent list. the boxes are £22.99 plus postage and they are always packed full of goodness!

 

I’m known for my boxes and before i had this option they always flew out within the hour of going live and at the moment I’m offering 80 each month, but if they become more popular i will offer more. If signing up for the subscriptions not for you, then i will be adding a few ready to buy on the website on the 1st of each month, but these will be priced slightly higher and there will be very limited numbers as most will have been purchased through the subscription listing.

Be sure to checkout my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/www.littleideaswithlove.co.uk/ and my wax group https://www.facebook.com/groups/850232061701698/ to see what many of my customers say about my themed surprise boxes!

Scoopable Wax

scoopable sherbet lemon

We are really pleased to share with you all our very new product Scoopable Wax.

 

Just over a month ago i sent out some samples to customers for them to try my new product and the feedback that came back was amazing, so i just knew i needed to add it to the website. Each pot is made with coconut oil and the process of making it is so much different to my other wax products. It needs to cure for a lot longer, so this means i shall take preorders on the website for certain quantities until i get full stock of it all. I’ve added sherbet Lemon and Blue Lagoon to the website and also stated that it won’t be sent out until Tuesday 14th June. I sold out within hours off adding the last batch to the website and i think its going to become very popular. I will be adding more fragrances in time and will have around 5 to pick from, but i want to pick a few different fragrances for these.

All details are on the website and you can find them under the Little Melt section, we will add a drop down menu for these so they are easier to find…….I should say Mr Melt will once i ask him lol.

We hope that your all enjoying our products and feel free to leave feedback at any time as we love to hear your thoughts.

Have a great day and……..happy melting!
