Introducing: The Sweet Olivia Sample Box!

Hi, friends!! I am super excited to announce that my fall/winter products are almost ready! They are going to be awesome!!!!! I know you all want to have everything, but maybe you would like to try each product first? This is where the idea of a sample box came into mind!

What is a Sweet Olivia Sample Box?

This sample box will include a small portion of each new product made for my fall/winter 2014 product line! You will receive:
2 oz. sample of Pumpkin Ale Hand and Body Scrub
2 oz. sample of Raspberry Vanilla Hand and Body Scrub
1 oz. sample of Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey Handmade Soap
1 oz. sample of Man Soap (Finally a product for the manly men!!)
1 oz. sample of Fig Harvest Handmade Soap
$5 Coupon Code toward any full size Sweet Olivia item in my Etsy Shop!
So, not only do you get to try each new item, but you also get a $5 coupon code toward any full size product in my Etsy shop! (Note: Coupon code cannot be applied to shipping.)
Here are the scent descriptions for each new product!
Pumpkin Ale: Fall in love with the magical and warm blend of Pumpkin Puree, Fresh Ginger, Crushed Nutmeg, Warm Cinnamon, Vanilla Sugar and Sparkling Rum
Raspberry Vanilla: Fresh, vine-ripened raspberries and blackberry notes are mixed with Italian bergamot, California Barlett pear and softened with notes of plum wine, vanilla orchid and a silky, cashmere musk. Overall, it's sweet, silky and mouth-watering.
Oatmeal, Milk, & Honey: Straight from Grandma's kitchen! Warm oatmeal flavored with creamy milk and honey.
Man Soap: A masculine scent with clean, sharp finish.  It's the perfect combination of barbershop aromas.  This fragrance combines the scent of a strong yet sweet aftershave along with hints of aromatic spices and orange zest.
Fig Harvest: The top notes are bright and crisp with notes of apple, lemon and ginger. Middle notes of fig, caramel, and cinnamon lead to more earthy base notes; leaving you with notes of coffee, twigs, and wet forest.
Are you excited yet?! Do you want to know the best part? This sample box is only $20...SHIPPING INCLUDED!!
I am currently taking pre-orders for the sample boxes! These will go FAST!! Pre-order to reserve your box now! (Estimated shipping date: Friday, Nov. 14th!)

Custom Products for YOUR Event!

One of my favorite things to do is make custom orders for my clients. No matter what event the products are for, it is a privilege to be included in it! I have done small and large custom orders. So, what exactly is customizable? Everything! Your imagination is really the limit!


Here are the custom products I have completed over the last few months, if you need some ideas!

(I also love when clients send me photos of the products at their event!!)

Let me know what I can do for you! :)

Sweet Olivia Aims To...

Good afternoon, friends! Goal setting is very important for personal and professional areas. I am constantly reviewing my goals to see how close I am to reaching them. Occasionally, some tweaking is necessary. I vastly underestimated the amount of time it would take to settle into our new home here in Georgia. I planned on having a new line of fall products for sale October 1st! Obviously, that did not happen. So friends, keep your eyes peeled for November! My new plan is to offer a sample box of the new products, so that you can try several items before making a full size purchase! How does that sound?! I may also include some Christmas and winter products since we are already into Fall!

I have been hard at work behind the scenes, though. I have been thinking about the type of business I want Sweet Olivia to be. I started brainstorming and came up with a great mission statement!

What do you think? If you have used my products before, have I lived up to my mission statement so far? I wanna know!

New Direction for Mom, Paper, Scissors...

Hi, friends! Just a quick update. I haven't forgotten about this blog!! haha I am, however, in the midst of changing it's focus somewhat. This blog will become more integrated with my business, Sweet Olivia Handmade Bath & Body. I want to keep you abreast of my recent products, custom orders, and more! I hope to add an online shop, as well, so that you can purchase Sweet Olivia products directly from my  website. Until I figure that out, I will still link products to my Etsy shop. I am still going to include more personal touches like family updates, but I am excited for the new direction this will take! 

Until the new website is up and running, please head on over to Facebook and follow Sweet Olivia Handmade there. Thanks for hanging in with me!!!

Packing Tips!

Hey!! We are 3 days away from getting our moving truck and 5 days away from being in our new house! Yippee!! That's right, we finally found a house we love :) I can not wait to show you all how it looks now...and after I'm done putting some magical touches to it! I have lots and lots of decorating ideas pinned on Pinterest, so go follow me there, if you're interested!

For now, I am sharing some packing tips that have worked well for us during this process. Let me know what you think by commenting below! Don't forget you can follow me on Facebook to keep updated on our move, as well!

One reason I'm looking forward to the move being over: Going to the grocery again! We have been trying to eat up all the food in our pantry. I'm down to 1/2 a bag of rice and Diet Coke!! HA!

Our Moving Checklist

In my last post, I announced we will be moving long distance very soon! My plan is to take a break from regular blogging until we get settled into our new city. But, I thought it might be useful to share my 'to do' list!

I have checked off about half of these already!  I am sure there are some things I forgot though, so let me know in the comments what you would add to the list!

We're moving!

I am very excited to announce that we have decided to relocate to Atlanta, Georgia! We recently vacationed there and had been thinking about moving. So, we decided to start applying for jobs just to see what would happen. Applications turned into phone calls, interviews, and job offers! I start my new job the first week of August. My 'to do' list is a mile long! haha

With all the excitement and things to do over the next month or so, I may not be posting regularly. I will try to check in every now and then to let you guys know what is going on! I will start back with a regular posting schedule once things settle down.

Until then, wish us luck!! :)

I still have the free ebook giveaway going on until July 9th. Check out this post to enter!
