If you are a Scentsy Consultant you need to be where people are and Facebook is it. It isn't the only place online you should be, but you must have a plan that includes it.
A lot of consultants primarily promote their Scentsy businesses on their personal profiles which is risky and limiting. It's against Facebook terms and conditions to do business on your personal page and Facebook has been removing people who do this. It's quite risky to without a moments notice to lose all your hard work and contacts, so I wouldn't attempt it. The benefits of having a biz page are that you can have unlimited fans where personal profiles have a limit of 5k. Biz pages are searchable from Google which means new fans will be able to find you, personal pages aren't. People will take you more serious with a biz page than just a personal profile. Remember your goal with Scentsy is to constantly find new people and with personal pages this isn't possible---you would have to find them. Some find new contacts elsewhere and then add to their friends list but you still are limiting yourself and creating more work. Build relationships on your biz page and let that attract more fans. If you want you can supplement this with a special customer group but you still have to provide value to this group in some way which means going above and beyond the typical sales posts.
Picking a Title for your Page
As long as Scentsy Independent Consultant is somewhere visible on the page it is within compliance to not have this in your FB title. If your biz name is Gorgeous Home Scents or in my case Ldn wickless candles, do not use this title either.....use just your name and then category pick Business Person or Professional Services. You need to remember that you are building your brand not Scentsy's. Although you use Scentsy products for your biz, setting yourself apart is key and your customers will remember YOU not your biz title. Using your name from the beginning begins relationship building which is the core of success with Scentsy. People buy because they've made a connection with YOU, they join because of what they see in YOU. It's also why you should never ever use a warmer for your profile pic or a pic of a cat or something else. Always use a picture of YOU smiling for your profile. Online little things like this help people to feel comfortable when trying to make connections and ultimately gaining a new lifelong customer.
1) create a new page
To create a new business page for your Scentsy business, you sign up via your personal profile and clicking http://Facebook.com/pages/create.php . You will see an opportunity to click and choose a category which I've mentioned what you should choose already and why. it should walk you through all the details needed. Fill in everything completely, COMPLETELY. In the description and about, avoid more than 1-2 lines of explaining what Scentsy is, the rest of it tell your Scentsy story and how you will help them. Remember this isn't about you, it's about how you will bless their life. Scentsy although it's warmers and wax at the core its friendships, self esteem, new experiences and the opportunity to feel better. Even if they never join your Scentsy team and just buy from you, people at the core of their purchase want to feel better. They want the nice smells to relax, to make their home more comfy, reduce stress or to remember scents from when they were a little kid. If you can create a similar environment on your page (somewhere where people will feel better) it will not only provide connection and inspire but will transfer over to when they are ready to purchase their Scentsy or even join.
2) Add profile picture and cover photo
Ive talked about profile pictures already, the cover photo is the most important piece of real estate on your page. I'd recommend going to Canva.com to easily create a beautiful one and they have templates that will automatically fit Facebook. Your cover picture you must take care with as it should easily give an idea for what you do (Scentsy) but what you can do for others. Posting a product image won't invite new relationships and in fact will turn people off. Try to have a cover image that includes a picture of you somehow. On my FB page I've done a collage of pics of Scentsy products, pics with Scentsy friends and pictures from incentive trips. I've seen other cover pics offering something free (info and tips nothing product related) in their cover image and then in the call to action button you have available having a sign up for this. Converting fans to customers on your FB page starts with your email list and providing free info with something that would help or bless others is the easiest way to get people to sign up. You can send samples out too in exchange for email addresses but I wouldn't recommend doing this often because it costs you money and often attracts only those who want free things and not truly interested customers. Once you feel comfy with how your cover image looks, upload it and then click on it. You'll see an opportunity to add a description......fill this in with your story and how you will help them and then end with your free info opt in to get people to sign up and convert them to add to your mailing list.
3) post something
Theres a lot of concern amongst Scentsy consultants about how to get seen with your FB page....do the 80/20 rule and you won't have to worry (80% non Scentsy, 20% Scentsy). I've posted a lot about this in previous presentations what kind of posts to do and I'd recommend you refer to my Scentsy Resources page and have a listen. Treat your biz page as a place you want to make new friends and it will help greatly in deciding what to post. Video at least for the moment posts straight to FB work very well and posting things that are already trending works too. Have a mix and include pictures of your life and your kids. Your page is an extended version of your Scentsy story in micro bits and pieces. Don't talk at people, talk to them as equals and don't be afraid to sign your name at the end of posts. Obviously you need to include the biz posts too but you will find that if you work primarily at using your page as a place of service and uplifting that this will transfer to converting more fans to customers. How often do you post? At least once a day if not 5+ times a day. Remember quality over quantity though and no amount of posting will replace a well thought of post your fans can relate to.
4) Invite your contacts and like your page
Now is the time to like your own page via your personal profile and then invite your customers to connect with you as well. Include your FB links in all your customer newsletters and correspondence. Be sure that when people start coming to your page to chat back to them which is critical to showing you care. Answer their questions and tag people (start typing their name and a drop down box should come up) as this makes people truly feel like you care and is the beginning of a deeper relationship with your customers. Posts do not like them yourself though as it looks a bit desperate to be honest. If you are looking for a chance to increase engagement, respond to customers questions and comments from your personal page.
5) click around and get comfy
Theres tabs and links all over your new page you will find. Click around and get comfy with what each one means for your page. Particularly the insights tab will tell you what isn't and is working in your posts and what direction to go. You can cater your posts and time of day when your fans are most on as FB insights tells you all of this and more. So as a new page owner, I srongly recommend getting familiar with everything as its how you learn. When I started Scentsy, I had no idea about social media and clicking around is how I learned at first.
6) You will have to do ads
facebook is no longer a 100% free platform and the other social media networks will likely follow. It is cheaper and easier and better to advertise for new fans through Facebook than Google ads in my opinion. So, get used to it and understand how ads work and study as much as you can because those who understand FB ads will be the ones to succeed in future with FB and online in general. I'd recommend either boosting posts or doing like ads but please be sure to do the targeting sections. You can tailor the ads in a pretty amazing way and even target your subscribers to your email newsletter (you can upload to FB) . Just be careful and don't jump the gun for ads because you can lose a lot of money very quickly. All ads should produce a tangible business result and if this doesn't happen it's not FB but you that's done someone wrong. I cannot stress enough researching and learning as much as you can BEFORE you do an ad. Why can't I do FB for free? FB has to account for its shareholders and it's a business and it's no longer a place for 100% free advertising. I mentioned previously that you shouldn't just focus on FB for your Scentsy business but other social media platforms that interest you (FB + one or two other platforms you enjoy). Do not be surprised if the other platforms follow FB example though, but it's something to be expected with any business that eventually you will have to spend money on advertising.
so hopefully after this article, you not only have set up your new Facebook page for your Scentsy business but have an introduction to how to succeed with it. If you enjoyed this article, please be sure to share with your teams.
Well obviously I would love it if you picked Scentsy, but I am here to help you find and choose something you love even if that means another company.
One of the most legitimate opportunities to earn money at home either part time or full time now is through direct sales. Unfortunately a lot of people want easy money so they want something that doesn't make them work and they can just get the paycheques. I'm here to tell you there isn't a job out there like that well a legit one. There are a lot of people out there who prey on people who want to earn money from home which is why you should always look for companies that are with the Direct Sales association.
The Direct Sales Association is a governing body that sets high standards and rules for its members. if you google "Direct Selling Association Global 100 2015" you can see a list of all the top companies in the DSA. If you are wanting to pick a company to join pick from something you could love in this list of 100. Why pick from this list? They are less likely to be a fad and more likely to have been around for a while and established. This means that you won't be doing a lot of work for the company to then close their doors and your livlihood out the window.
Most companies in the DSA have a starter kit required. Why pay money to start? I'm working for Scentsy shouldn't they be paying me? You aren't actually an employee when you join and become a consultant with one of these companies, you are like a mini franchise. Kind of like opening your own McDonalds without the thousands required to do so. Requiring a start up cost weeds out the people who want the easy money. You are making a commitment to your new business when you join and should treat it like a biz no matter what hours you have to give to it.
Whatever company you pick from the DSA global list be sure to look for their compensation plan. if it is not visible or you have to join before you can see it, run for the hills because it's not legitimate. The companies you want to join are very open about how much you will make because they want you to succeed right from the very beginning.
There are other work at home jobs out there but I guarantee the pay will have a cap to it. Direct Sales there is no cap but there's no guarantee either. You should be wary of companies that promise you money after a certain number of weeks because nothing is ever guaranteed in life ever. If you are looking for extra income whether you are a stay at home mom/mum be very vigilant about having a clear head when picking what company to join. Do not let desperation for money set you up for failure later by joining a company who wants to take advantage of that desperation.
Take time picking a sponsor. This can be difficult as often with these companies people join their friends who might have joined. Its not always the best decision to join under someone you know and they may not be able to give you what you need either. Have a think about how you want to market your business and talk to people who will be an expert in what you're looking for. Titles and team size doesn't necessarily equate to support level. Having a good mentor helps but it's your business in the end. You could have a superstar director for a sponsor who lives a 10 minutes drive from you with thousands in her team that you never hear from. You could have the most supportive sponsor on the planet who is only a star consultant with Scentsy, lives abroad who goes above and beyond to help but you still find yourself struggling with things. Your success is in Your hands, this is YOUR business and not your sponsors so please remember that.
You will be spending a lot of time doing whatever business venture you choose so you have got to love it. Do not join a weight loss fitness company if you can't stand exercising. The passion or not will come through whether you want it to or not.
You do have a great opportunity when you choose a company and product you love with the Direct Selling Association. Remember to never give up and why you started in the first place and it should bring you and your family blessings that go far beyond just a paycheque.
So if you're considering joining my Scentsy team or have already joined through one of my colleagues, You're probably wondering what titles or levels of Scentsy Consultants there are. These titles are what your compensation or pay is based on each month and you hit these levels based on what numbers you and your team do in one month. If you dont hit the numbers you get the pay what you've done, not what your title may be. So for example, Superstar Directors the top of Scentsy if they do not sell their 500 PRV (amount in sales) they feasibly can still be paid at Certified Consultant which is only 25%.
I've attached a copy of the Scentsy Compensation plan at the end of this post. Have a read through my description and then click on the picture as afterwards you'll understand it a lot better.
Escential Consultant: This is your title when you join Scentsy and you are paid 20% commission. Once you have sold 1000 PRV (points based system based on sales---not quite 1 for 1) you can promote.
Certified Consultant: Your Pay is 25% and you can never go below this pay for as long as you are with Scentsy. To get higher than this for your pay you need to either do one or two things---1) Sell 2K PRV in one month and then you get a 5% bonus so 30% pay or 2) Recruit a team. 2k PRV is tough to do EVERY month, although you should work towards it so you must recruit because it means that you can earn more money a lot easier.
Lead Consultant: To hit lead Consultant you need 500 PRV of your own sales, 1 team member active and a Group Wholesale amount of 1000. Your Wholesale amount is .75% of PRV so it works out you need more than 1k in PRV to get this if that makes sense. You can hit the Group Wholesale amount by you doing nearly all the work or by your team member doing the work. Its a team effort but you both need to contribute a particular amount to qualify. To figure out how much PRV you need to promote, take the Title you want so Lead would be 1k. Say you've got 600 PRV so far this month and want to see how much more you need to promote. 1k-600 =400 Divided by .75% = 533 PRV. You and your team member need a total of 533 PRV between the both of you to hit lead. This equation can be used on any title or level within Scentsy. You get 25% and then an Extra 2% from Personal Wholesale Volume, plus an extra 2% from Team Wholesale Volume for all your Escential or Certified Consultants.
Star Consultant: 500 PRV for you, 2 team members active (150 PRV) and 2500 Group Wholesale Volume. Once you start getting to star and above its important to keep recruiting and adding to your team. Not everyone will be active in their Scentsy businesses every month. You may lose people which is normal. Keep recruiting so that you are being paid your title each month. Its one thing to hit the title but you then must aim for consistently hitting your title for the pay each month. If you do this it will be a lot easier to maintain your pay when you hit Director or above and the other Scentsy leadership positions. For Star Consultant you get 25%, plus a 4% bonus from your Personal Wholesale Volume, plus a 2% bonus for every time one of your team members hit their title of lead in the month. You can start to see a pattern here that helping your Scentsy team is within your financial interests as well as for your team members.
Superstar Consultant: Keep adding and adding new team members. Numbers are important here as to hit Director you'll need in the 30+ range for team. Teach your team members how to recruit, how to consistently get sales and it will help you. You must give your team time otherwise it will be unlikely you will be able to move beyond Superstar Consultant. To hit it you need 500 PRV, 6k group wholesale (notice the big jump) and 3 active team members. Your pay increases with 7% bonuses and a 5% and 3% bonus for team members who hit Lead and Star on your team. You will start noticing the pay increases quite a bit when you hit Superstar Consultant.
Director: Yay, you've finally hit Director which not many Consultants hit. A lot give up before now but you've proven your resilience by finally making it to a Scentsy Leadership position. There are responsibilities when you hit Director that your sponsor will discuss with you but also you can lose your title of Director. If you have been working on consistency of being paid at title with your Scentsy business it will be easier to maintain your title of Scentsy Director. But do not worry if you dip down or even dip down to Superstar Consultant as its very common! The rules are if you do not hit your Director title for 3 months you move to Director Q and after 6 months you move back to Superstar Consultant. If you hit these titles for a certain number of months in a row you have the possibility of earning consistency bonuses including free registration to Convention and to Scentsy Leadership in January. To hit Director you need a whopping 10k Personal Wholesale Volume, 2k in Team Wholesale Volume and 3 Active Consultants as well as your own personal 500 PRV. If you look at the Compensation plan below you will see there are multiple ways to earn bonuses for the titles that your team hit each month, also your Frontline Escential or Certified Bonus moves up to 9% which is huge. Director and above is where financially you really start noticing a difference in your life and its what you should aim for when you join.
Star Director: You are almost to the top of Scentsy---You just need to keep recruiting and working especially hard on building and nourishing your leaders and superstar consultants. To hit Star Director you need to have 2 First Generation Directors (Personally recruited by you). You can see the numbers you need in the picture below to hit Star and the compensation % you will receive. The extra numbers on top of the 25% you have always gotten since you hit certified are for how well your team does per month so all those bonuses are for each consultant who hits the title listed for that month. You can see the income potential now with Scentsy cant you?
Superstar Director: You need 4 Frontline Directors to hit this and close to 80k Group Wholesale Volume---Thats quite a big difference than the 1k you needed when you hit Lead eh? It is possible but baby steps. Superstar Director is quite an honour and the highest you can go with Scentsy. Financially its not the end though because the more you add to your team and consistently recruit the more your income keeps going up. There are people who only make a little bit with Scentsy to people who make six and seven figures. The 7 figure earners are all Superstar Directors. You can do this but you must never give up and consistently work your business.
So here is the compensation table for Scentsy. Its the same compensation whether you live in Australia, the UK or Mexico.
There really isnt any wrong or right way to recruit for your Scentsy or Direct Sales Business. I would try everything and eventually you will find out what works for you. The most important thing though to do is to consistently find new people to talk to about the Scentsy Opportunity. A lot of consultants falter after initially asking their friends and family and they let fear get in the way and dont ask at all. You must get no's to get a yes and increase your chances of getting a Yes. You must get more yes' to increase the number of people who actually stay in the business or consistently work. There's a high turn-over with direct sales because people want quick money and Direct Sales and Scentsy takes effort and hard work. Remember you are starting your own business! New businesses require love and attention and sweat, blood and tears.
1) Focus on others instead of yourself. Flipping this attitude and remembering its not about your stats or numbers its about using the business opportunity to change lives will help quite a bit. When you meet new people don't go into the spiel of join me right away. Ask about their life and take a genuine interest. If they ask you about what you do, you can say you are a Scentsy Consultant. Let them ask the questions. You want someone who is genuinely interested in the opportunity and you arent feeding the info to or appearing desperate. Dont post on Facebook "My Director Challenged me to recruit 3 people this month or things similar as its about YOU not them when you post things like this. With that said though, do talk and present the Scentsy opportunity to everyone and never assume that they will say no. Let them decide what is right for their life or not.
2) Be confident, authentic and enthusiastic. If you are doubting whether this was the right decision to join Scentsy, if you are barely getting an order in yourself once every 3 months---Even if you havent mentioned it people will sense it. They will feel your energy and that you dont particularly care. Its ok to be authentic and be yourself and have a bad day but be aware of how you are coming across to potential recruits. 90% of the time, always try to have an inspiring, positive, confident spin on things which includes social media. People join because they not only want to earn money but they are looking for something more---an opportunity to feel better in their life. You as a team leader need to create this environment. Do not talk about Scentsy if you arent in a good place for this reason. It will affect your success I can guarantee! Be enthusiastic about your business--share your successes or if you are off to an incentive trip. Be humble and there is a balance but your enthusiasm will be noticeable and people will start asking you---So what is this Scentsy thing?
3) Give more than you take with your Scentsy customers. Your customers are your biggest pool for potential recruits. Build relationships with your customers. Provide the best customer service you've ever seen. Send emails once or twice a week and only 20% of the time mention what special offers are available. Send birthday postcards or customer appreciation postcards in the post. People love getting snail mail believe me! Use the same philosophy of giving more than you take with your social media. Stop posting non stop sales posts on your Facebook Scentsy Business Page. It doesnt work, if you research social media tips on Google you will find I speak the truth. People want to relate to others, not sales people. They want to see their story in your story (Make sure you share your scentsy story on your website, etc, etc). Share pictures of what you are up to on a weekend and pictures of you with your kids. In your newsletters (and your FB page), share things that have inspired you this week or made you smile. Use your Scentsy business to uplift, to serve and to help and that will come back to you ten fold.
4) Find ways to consistently meet new people. Success with Scentsy requires 2 things-----Taking Care of the people you know which is what we talked about with 3) and Finding new people. If you do not take care of these two aspects your Scentsy Success Bucket will run dry. Finding new people is where a lot of people find the hardest and where people fail. Its easy to ask people to buy or join Scentsy with people you know!!! It takes getting out of your comfort zone, getting over the feeling of being uncomfortable, getting used to no, not giving up and a lot of hard work.
So how do you find new people to talk to about Scentsy??
-Practice Talking to Strangers. Talk to your hairdresser, your bank teller, the person you always see at the cafe, the grocery store attendant, the waiter. Be chatty and start with 'How are you'. Ask them how their day is or when they get off work. Wish them a good day. What's the worst that could happen? They could either run down the street screaming or you've made someones day. When you go back again to this place again and see them, start from where you left off. Listen for opportunities if they talk about not liking their job or ask what you do. Carry some catalogues or business cards with a small sample attached and leave it with them or when you are leaving a restaurant.
-Your Customer Pool: Are their customers who stick out in their ordering? Are they ordering consistently a lot? Talk to them about the opportunity and tell them how much money they'd save with Scentsy if they joined rather than just staying as a customer. If they get nervous about joining, remind them that the worst that could happen is they go back to being a customer.
-Social Media: This takes time but is the best way to get people to come to you. Create a youtube Channel and start helping other consultants or giving your reviews of your favourite Scentsy scents. Make sure you share helpful, inspiring and non Scentsy posts. Especially with social media its the quickest way for people to turn off is to say buy from me 90% of the time. If you are wondering why your social media isnt getting any likes or shares this is why. Build a consistent plan of sharing and giving more than you take on social media and you will notice more and more people finding their way to your site and people finding YOU.
-Networking and Meetup Groups: Find business clubs, networking groups, join clubs that interest you or are related to Scentsy (like candle clubs) or look on meetup.com for things you can get active with. Go and meet people and dont talk immediately about your business, make friends!! If you do not live near a meetup group....create your own! Like Tuesdays for Tea or something and invite the mums in the local area to have a tea club and bring their kids over too. Then when they come over be sure the house smells absolutely gorgeous.
-Create a referral programme for your customers: Reward your customers if they find you new recruits or customers. Give more than you take so that they naturally spread the word about you.
-Basket Parties: Encourage your basket party hostesses to keep the basket going and finding someone who wants to take it off them to ensure new people. Be sure to collect email addresses of all hostesses and potential hostesses. Keeping the basket going will help your sales and increase how many people are in your pool of people for potential recruits!
-Build relationships with other Direct Sales Reps: A lot of times they join more than one company, so finding ways to meet other reps will always pay off in the end!
5) Be an Excuse Buster
If people are unsure about whether to join, invite them to do a party so they can get an idea of what becoming a Scentsy Consultant will be like. If they do not have the funds to join, suggest flipping the party. Find ways to make the Scentsy opportunity work for each person. Listen, Listen, Listen to what people are saying and find ways you can tailor the opportunity to them.
6) Have a Possibility Night
Invite your customers or people you know would do a good job at this to a Possibility Night. Play Games, do prizes (as long as its within the rules of Scentsy and your company) and then do a short presentation about the Scentsy opportunity. You can do these online on Facebook too and I have done them as B.A.C.O.N. nights which is become a consultant opportunity night. Play Bacon related games and then present on the Scentsy Opportunity. Its a chance for people to have fun and to ask questions.
7) Always have a Recruitment Pack Ready
People will ask you for information more than you will get people joining. Have a 1 page sheet typed up that you can send to people via online inquiries. Have some recruitment packs in your car with a little sample or a pen or something. People will appreciate the efforts to get you the info and to take something away too.
8) Follow Up
I see this as a common problem with Scentsy consultants. They've asked people but they dont follow up. If someone says they are interested in joining Scentsy follow up in 1 week. Dont bring up Scentsy just ask how they are doing and how their week has been. If they still dont bring up Scentsy after the 2nd week---Follow up again and ask them and say I wanted to check in and see what your thoughts were. If they still dont respond after 3 attempts, move them to your Scentsy newsletter or keep them in your loop for maintaining contacts. No now doesnt mean no later.
9) Become the Team Member you want to Recruit
You should always lead from the front (by example) anyway in your Scentsy or direct selling business. But, like attracts like---You attract the type of people YOU already are. So consistently work on yourself. Go to the gym finally, make sure you are hitting over 500 in sales each month, read self help books, go sign yourself up to a therapist....Anything you can do to become better do it. The more and more you work on yourself, the more and more people will flock to you naturally. Who do you want to be in this life? What leader do you envision yourself as? Who do you look up to as a perfect leader, teacher and mentor and aim to make those qualities come out for you as well.
10) Never give up
Recruiting can be the most mind numbing, frustrating part of Scentsy. You see what seems like everyone else succeeding with it and you cant seem to get one recruit! Well I'm here to tell you to please not give up and also what others do who cares. This is YOUR journey and your business and worrying about what others do in their Scentsy businesses is stealing your power. So STOP IT!! Decide whether you are all in with Scentsy or you've got one foot in the pool, one foot out. If you are going to do Scentsy its not fair to yourself to be 1/2 motivated like this and fully commit to be 100% all in. No matter what obstacles, frustrations in your business you will NEVER give up. Its easy to not trust that this business will work, but you must.....YOU MUST. If you do your best every day on your Scentsy business, this will happen for you I can guarantee. We dont know the reasons why some Scentsy journeys are harder than others but those that move to Director in 6 months do they have the emotional skills to lead a team? Probably not. Everything is for a reason, there's a lesson in everything, just have the faith that if you never give up that your Scentsy business will be the road to making your dreams a reality.

We live nearby a teeny little park here in London called Ravensbourne Park. Its kind of halfway between Deptford, Greenwich, Lewisham and Blackheath on the border. We've gone there just to get some fresh air before or to go for a quick run as its about a mile and a half from our house, round the park and then back again. Its not the biggest of parks but the blossoms in the spring here are great and you can see some pretty amazing birds. We've seen coutts, Herons, lots of ducks and even swan. Its a great way to clear the head or have some meditation time.
James and I popped out there this afternoon before heading to Greenwich doing errands. I love being able to work from home with Scentsy because it means I can go for a walk anytime I want. There's a great freedom to that which I like that 9-5 jobs just dont give frankly.
So here's some of the pictures of the daffodils and the little pond and stream there. Even if you may not be able to get out for a walk today, maybe you can live vicariously through me! lol :)
The weather is getting better here in London, so we've been heading out more and more and trying to explore new and different things. We've lived here for 14 yrs in London and have realised that there's a lot we havent done.
We booked up a visit to the Sky Garden in Central London. We went and had afternoon tea up on the 35th floor of the walkie talkie building. There's a gorgeous little garden there and restaurants and 360 views over the city. James had never had a chance to see views like this in London, so he really enjoyed it.
This last weekend just passed (Yesterday) I went to a concert for the City Wind Orchestra and then Saturday we went browsing round to Brixton. I loved Brixton and thought it was very cute and eclectic. It reminds me of Deptford actually x 10. We stopped for cupcakes at the vegan bakery there---Ms Cupcake and then had lunch out. Sunday we walked through Greenwich Park after going to Blackheath Farmers Market. The smells of the market were amazing---there was a stall right by the entrance that was cooking homemade sausage rolls with onions on the side. It was sure yummy to smell and reminds me why I love the farmers markets in London. In Greenwich Park, the daffadils were starting to bloom. I know that spring is round the corner when the daffodils come in London that's for sure.
We've also been busy cleaning our flat with a great spring clear out. Getting things to charity, selling them and everything. The flat feels so much better and I'd really recommend that if you want to feel better to have a good clear out.
Hope you are well.
Brushstrokes Deluxe Scentsy Warmer
A multidimensional work of art, with alternating stripes of rusty red, taupe, and dark green highlighted by metallic brushstrokes.
Green Marble Scentsy Warmer
Smooth, Cool Marble Tones gleam in a patina of bronze and green. Distinctive metal glaze creates a highly reflective finish that varies with its surroundings. A beautiful warmer, perfect for college students. No visible lights although LED lightbulbs gently heat the wax.
Instagram is where I prefer to be most of the time. I'm playing around with two accounts---One more business although I havent really been posting there recently and one for fun with a touch of biz. I decided that I'd post a bit from my life recently on Instagram and what fun I've been up to so here you go.
I am out quite a bit in Greenwich and along one of the side streets on the way to the park there's these posh houses that have their own garden so this is where this picture is from.
James was volunteering around Borough Market in East London recently so after he was finished we met up and wandered round taking pictures and then went for a nice burger.
The Weather has been getting noticeably better in London with sunnier, less gray depressing skies. I do better when its sunny and this was taken when I was out around London Bridge. I think Londoners generally feel happier when there's blue skies in the city. Seriously who wouldnt?
I've been making a list of places I've never been to in London as I've been here for 14 yrs and thought I had seen everything. Well apparently I havent and the Saatchi Gallery in West London was one of the big things I havent seen. I wouldnt recommend seeing the Saatchi on its own, if you are out and about anyway near Sloane Square then do it, but dont make a trip just for the gallery. Its not because the gallery aint worth it, that's far from it, its just its only like 8 rooms and its SUPER SMALL.
Most of the Museums and Art Galleries in London are free and that includes the Tate and here is a picture of one of my favourite rooms, the Henry Moore sculptures.
Are you on Instagram? Would love to connect with you there. xoxo
