Hi there beauties!
Sorry for the radio silence for about a month now! Things just got a bit too hectic in August and I'm only now just getting back in to the groove...
So I thought to ease us all back in, I'd just do a little post to catch us all up on a few things that have been happening around Lucky Cloud HQ.
46A George Street, EH2 2LE
Tuesday 2 – Monday 29 August 2016
10am to 10pm daily
Well hello August! Also launched this week is the incredible shopping experience that is Urban Reivers. Located on the busy and bustling George St, a hub for shopping, drinking and dining this is one pop-up shop you don't want to miss!
Rich in essential fatty acids – which are needed to retain skin moisture and elasticity, we’re having a look at four amazing butters Cocoa + Black Cocoa + Shea + Coconut.
So fantastic for your skin, especially if it’s dry, they’re all beneficial for people who suffer from flaky, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis prone skin conditions.
I thought I’d take the chance to give you a little overview of everything we got up to in June here at the Lucky Cloud Skincare HQ!
It was a busy month with new stockists, markets, lovely reviews, sunshine (!) in Edinburgh and even the chance to get out of the city for a wee break at Loch Lomond...
I thought I’d take the opportunity this week to show you around one of my lovely stockists here in Edinburgh. Century General Store has two locations; the original flagship store at 100 Marchmont Crescent, opened in 2014 by Stephen Kirkwood and the second store, which launched in January 2016 at Montrose House, Abbeyhill run by Niall.
After nearly a year of hunting and searching for a studio / workshop to call my own, one finally dropped in my lap! I now call Edinburgh Palette at St Margaret's House my home (well, office I guess even though sometimes I might like to spend the night...) Oh, and it has a sink with hot and cold running water. A sink!
So I left off my last blog post with a bit of teaser about my first retail stockist. Well, it's been a busy few weeks and I have lots of new gossip to fill you in on!
Monday 1 June, the first working day after the DesignMarket I received an email from The Makers Gallery up in Alloa inquiring about my products as they'd seen photographs of the event on Facebook. To say I was excited would have been an understatement!
Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh
Friday 29 - Sunday 31 May 2015
Every year the Fruitmarket Gallery hosts an incredible makers market called the DesignMarket. Before the BIG summer exhibition they turn their beautiful Edinburgh gallery into a huge retail space full of incredible designers, jewellers, ceramicists, illustrators, weavers... you get the picture. Well - I was lucky enough to be included!
Easter weekend, 2015.
Hill Street Design House, Edinburgh
After months (years!) of planning, experimenting, road-testing, tweaking, paper-working, safety testing etc - I was ready to finally launch "Lucky Cloud Skincare". However, the whole idea of people actually using my products, holding them in their hands, judging (?!) them, well it seemed a wee bit daunting... so I decided to take a baby step into the world and hold a "soft-launch" for friends, family and friends of friends.
