2020 was a difficult year for everyone and 2021 wasn't a whole lot easier but we were determined to make it a good one coming into this year 12 long months ago. We're big on positive vibes around here so we took a look back at all of the fun we had and all of the good we did throughout the year. Wanna see how we've tried to make the world a happier place in 2021? Let's go!
Supporting Our Troops
We had the amazing opportunity this year to put together an event for our troops at the Niagara falls air force base. There were several units in attendance who were all really into the whole candle & bath bomb vibe so we were psyched to be able to provide a small bit of comfort in the form of peace and relaxation. We know, in the grand scheme of things, that candles and bath bombs aren't going to change the world but we do know that relaxation can improve mental health which is important in such a stressful job.
Not only did we get to party with the brave men and women in attendance at the event but we also got to send some off to the Western NY heroes program. Not only were we able to provide comfort to our active duty ladies and gents but also to those who have served in the past and deserve a ton of recognition also.
This event was a real highlight of our year. It was so heartwarming to see all those big smiles!
Being a small business ourselves, we are always on the look out for ways that we can help other fellow small business owners and girl bosses especially those in our own community. This year we were able to be a proud sponsor of Sip & Shop, an event put on by WINC Buffalo. All proceeds from the event were donated to Dress For Success, a generous not for profit organization that helps prepare women getting back into the workforce. They do the amazing work of helping women dress for the job they want, gain financial independence & confidence in themselves, build up their resumes, improve their interview skills and so much more.
The event was a huge success! We were so happy to come together with other women-owned small businesses to support and amazing cause.
This is the first year we've been able to put on such a large giveaway to thank all of our customers for being so amazing and for sticking with us through thick and thin. Our 12 Days of Giftmas Giveaway was a real blast! We had a great time interacting with everyone and hiding our secret codes for you all to find. It was definitely an amazing way to kick off Christmas and wrap up the year. We were able to give away nearly $18,000 in prizes to 12 of our biggest fans. We look forward to being able to do more of this in the future so keep your eyes on our site in 2022!
We're so ready for a fresh new year and fresh new opportunities to make this world just a little better the best way we know how - through smiles, giving and relaxation! We can't wait to see you in the new year. We have lots more surprises in store for you in 2022!
