The end of another year...

I want to thank all of my customers, from the bottom of my heart, for a great 2016. It wouldn't have been successful without you. Next year we are hoping to get into a couple more stores and add a few new products. 2017 is going to be a great year for me personally and for the business. Stay tuned for new and exciting things.

Be HAPPY for one another

I wasn't going to post this but with the sadness and crazy in the world I felt the need. I recently had an experience with a fellow business owner here in Grand Rapids and I want to share my feelings as I don't want anyone to ever feel this way. 

I have had great press on my beer soap recently and had a business owner tell me she was "disappointed" that the press was implying that I was the first to market with my beer soap. I have nothing but happiness for my fellow business owners. Never be disappointed in someone's greatness, be happy for one another. 

I almost let this ruin my success but with some encouraging words from some friends I decided that I was only going to work that much harder, to be that much more successful. Thank You


Happy Tuesday Friends, Love one another


Things are getting busy...real busy...

So we are preparing for our All Press Event in NYC in June with The Artisan Group, we are also getting our press release out and we picked up a couple more locations to carry our products! This is all on top of getting ready for market season and some other events that we have coming up. We were on vacation for only a week but I got sooooo behind. I think I am finally caught up with making and shipping. I have been asked to do a soap making class but I'm just not sure I want to get into that. That might be something I will consider come fall when I am not so busy...who am I kidding, I will be busy because of the holidays. We are always looking for suggestions and input.

Some exciting news...

So we mentioned that after the holidays we were going to be doing something big. Well we have finalized everything and are ready to "spill the beans"

We have joined The Artisan Group! They are an exclusive premier entertainment marketing organization and their goal is to provide handcrafted products to TV shows, celebrities, press and media and gifting suites. So with that said we will be supplying one of our products for the 2016 Holiday Consumer Press/Media gifting event in New York. Some of the past attendees have been VOGUE, redbook, ESSENCE, Good Housekeeping and more. We are so excited to be given this opportunity. We are able to get our products in the hands of potential clients that we may not have been able to otherwise. Fingers crossed that this gives us a chance to chat with one or a few of those individuals...and maybe, just maybe

After the holidays

Well things have finally calmed down here at Serene Body Essentials...kind of. We are getting our Spring products ready and will be discounting our holiday and winter items soon. We will have a big announcement coming soon. I can't wait to share it with you. Our Acne Bar has been a huge success so that will be a regular item now. You can find that in our products section. Our stores along the lakeshore will start to get busy soon so we are preparing for that as well. Thank you for a great 2015 and we can't wait to see what 2016 has in store for us.
