Scentsy Convention 2012!

Well, I am very excited this week! Scentsy have just announced the UK 2012 Convention Destination!  This will be my first time attending convention, but my wonderful Scentsy colleagues have been telling me all about how fab the 2011 convention was. I really can’t wait to see all my Scentsy friends again, to meet our amazing directors, Heidi and Orville Thompson and to take advantage of the fantastic training the company provides its consultants.

Getting on board as a Scentsy consultant has really been a great experience for me. There is no sense of competition between consultants, and those who have advanced are always happy to share any tips or tricks that have helped them, from you tube videos, to facebook messages, even midnight chats! Scentsy is all about coming together for the good of everyone. It is such a great company to work with.

The Scentsy convention this year is being held at Queens Hotel in Leeds. It’ll be a two day affair and won’t be all fun and games, there will be lots of workshops and training. At the end of the day there will be an evening meal to relax and mingle with Scentsy heads and other consultants, plus product giveaways and consultant recognition.

Convention starts the same day I finish a week long cognitive psychology residential school. So, I will be most looking forward to my bed in a Queens Hotel Superior Room after a week in, lets face it, less than superior student accomodation!

I have to admit, I have always been the type of person who starts new things with a lot of energy and motivation. But all that motivation tends to fizzle out after a few months, when reality has set in and things become harder than they seemed at the outset. Scentsy really goes the extra mile to help consultants feel motivated and energetic about their business all the time. After my first three months with Scentsy, I was starting to feel dejected and worried. It’s a new company and a new concept here in the UK, people don’t know anything about it and in this age of  constant in your face advertising, it can be hard for people to stop and take notice.  So, I was sure to attend the Scentsy World Tour in February and it was such a boost. Coming together with my fellow consultants from all over the UK to share success stories and moan about failures was so gratifying. Receiving great training and advice  from our Scentsy Coporate Leaders who are based in the states and really know whats working for stateside consultants, who have been at it for about 6 years longer than us, made me feel so equipped to go out there and make Scentsy a household name in the UK!

So, yeah, I’m really excited about Convention and I’m so glad I took a leap of faith and joined Scentsy rather than applying for yet another dead end job that I’d hate, just to make ends meet while I finished my degree.  If you’re interested in joining Scentsy and would like to attend convention to see what it’s all about, please contact me to find out how!

When was the last time you had a chance to spend a weekend at a four star hotel with your colleagues- and actually WANTED to?

Showcasing- The Cupcake Party order!

K was really excited to host her Scentsy party. She loves all things cupcake so, of course, the Scentsy cupcake warmer was on her must have list! The day of the party, I was stressed. I hadn’t been able to secure one of the brand new cupcake warmers to display at her party and I was having terrible “morning” sickness. Thinking I needed to eat something to get through the evening, I ate some pasta before leaving the house. What a mistake, not five minutes down the road I was very very sick, in the front seat of the car, with only an empty small McDonalds cup at my disposal!

Now running late, I had to return to the house to clean up and brush my teeth. By the time I got to K’s house, the guests had just started to trickle in.  Unfortunately I have not yet mastered party set up and it takes me a good 45 minutes to set up. By the time I was finished, there were about 25 people standing around her kitchen, chomping at the bit to get started! I brought everyone in and introduced myself, then excused myself to go and put some makeup on and get some air!  Thankfully I had put catalogues and samples on every chair so they could have a look through and chat about the product.

I was of course, mortified, but I think everyone understood and no one minded.  K’s day long baking efforts wre to thank for that, I wish I had taken some photos of her fabulous confectionary’s, cupcakes of every description, beautiful cakes, anything you can think of!  She is a born hostess, her guests had happy bellies and big smiles when they took their seats! Which probably also contributed to the nearly £800 worth of orders they placed that evening.

20 Scentsy Warmers, 46 Scentsy Fragrance Bars, and of course a Scentsy Buddy or 5 and a brand new Scentsy Travel Tin or 6!

Enjoy having a look at the items ordered at this wonderful cupcake party, and if you see something you must have, please email or phone me directly!

Scentsy Silhouette Warmers

I posted about the new Scentsy Silhouette Warmers a while back and the post has been really popular. No surprise, there- people love these warmers! I decided to do a new post showcasing each warmer individually as they are all so lovely! As with all Scentsy products, these warmers are excellent quality and excellent value for money. None of the soot and mess associated with jar candles, no leftover wax in the bottom of the jar, and no having to throw it away once all the wax is gone, effectively throwing money in the trash!  Of course you get the added benefit of  being able to change the scent you have warming whenever you like, no stress, no hassle. Simply pour the warmed wax back into its container, wipe out the dish with a bit of tissue or kitchen towel and pop a new scent in! So easy, you might never go back to jar candles again!

The silhouette warmers are new to the UK, and only became availble with the launch of our Spring/Summer 2012 catalogue. Since then, they have been on fire!  Topping our list of top selling warmes every week! The most poular Silhouette warmer is Loom.

Each set includes a warmer wrap and a simple, porcelain Full-Size Scentsy Warmer that allows light to shine through—highlighting the organic patterns created by its metal wrap.

Loom: The loom wrap consists of threads of wire-thin metal are woven into a whimsical nest.
