Sweet Olivia Spring 2015 Collection

The sweet scent of spring! When thinking about the scents I wanted to offer for the new season, one word kept coming to mind: Fresh. These three new scents are awesome for spring and summer! The formula remains the same: Moisturizing and softening with coconut and grapeseed oils.

Sweet Strawberry will be a best seller, I'm sure! It smells like strawberries picked fresh from the vine. Perfect for this time of year! BUY HERE!

The Pikake Flower is used to make Hawaiian Leis. (Learn something new every day, right?) This scent is great if like like more subtle-scented body products. BUY HERE!

If you love the scent of lavender, this scrub is for you! It is made with actual essential oil, so you can benefit from those relaxing properties, as well! BUY HERE! 

If you would like to try all three scrubs, let me know! I am offering the Spring Collection at a discount! Normally, each body scrub is $8/each. If you purchase the entire collection, you can get all three for just $20, plus shipping! Please email me if you would like to take advantage of this. (I am using a new online store and have yet to figure out how to apply discounts like this! Bare with me until I figure it out!) Once you email me with your order, I will send you an invoice through email for your order. :)

Become a Sweet Olivia Social Influencer!

Become a Sweet Olivia Social Influencer!
I am very excited to be starting a new program for Sweet Olivia Handmade Bath and Body! Do you want to get free Sweet Olivia products sent to you throughout the year? Do your friends trust your opinions on beauty products? If so, this program might be for you!

What is a Social Influencer?

An effective Social Influencer is highly visible online. She is very active on her social media accounts! She freely shares her opinion with her friends and loves to recommend products! Your goal is to expand the Sweet Olivia brand awareness and create excitement about the products. 

What's in it for you?

As a Social Influencer, you will receive complimentary Sweet Olivia products at various times throughout the year. In exchange, you agree to share your opinion and Sweet Olivia links via social media. There will be both required and optional activities! Examples of activities include: Posting a picture of a body scrub, sharing your review of my products, completing a survey, etc. Easy-peasy! For each activity you complete, you will earn points. You will be able to cash in those points for additional products!

Sound good?!

In order to match the best influencers with my brand, I've created a short application for this program. Please answer the questions and, if chosen, you will be contacted after the deadline by the e-mail address you provide in the application.

Deadline to participate: Friday, April 24th, 2015!

Why Should You Choose Sweet Olivia?

I constantly search for ways to learn more about running a successful business. Whether it's a podcast, a book, or blog, I really enjoy delving into it and applying the principles to bettering Sweet Olivia! A friend suggested I check out Coursera, a website that provides free courses from universities all over the country. I was so excited to see a Marketing class starting soon! This week is the first week of video lessons and it has me thinking already!

There are three areas in which a business can excel: Operations, Products, and Customer Intimacy. Customers will weigh what each company has to offer and choose the company that excels in whichever area is most important to them. Customer Service has always been important to me. I knew, when I started Sweet Olivia, that a great customer experience would keep people coming back. Here are some service areas in which Sweet Olivia excels.

1. Custom Options: No other bath and body company allows such customization of their products! In fact, I would like to offer a DIY body scrub kit of some sort in the future. For now, though, anyone can email me with their specific concerns and I will design a custom product for them!

2. Turn-Around Time: Once an order is placed, it is then made and shipped out within the week, usually within a couple days! This is unheard of for a handmade product! Whether I ship USPS or FedEx, I always choose the 2-day option to get my product in your hands faster!

3. Fixing Mistakes: It does happen, unfortunately. I strive to make every customer exceptionally happy, though, even if that means refunding their money or replacing a product.

4. Providing Value: One of my missions with Sweet Olivia is to provide value beyond my products. I love working with people to start their own businesses! I have also started a collection of eBooks to teach what I've learned about skin care and starting a business. You can get my first eBook absolutely free by clicking here!

It is really difficult for a business to stand out among its competitors. Especially in a market as large as the skin care and cosmetics industry. One way I can do that is to provide the absolute best customer experience!

The Sweet Life: February 2015

February was such a busy month for us! The month included my favorite holiday and my birthday!!!

We spent a very rainy afternoon at the circus! I may have been more excited than the kids (once they figured out where we were going!!). I haven't been to the circus since I was a child and I was SO EXCITED!! See our favorite parts in this vlog:

I really want to get back into vlogging, so subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can watch! We tend to be out and about every weekend, so I will start there. :)

We also visited my family in Ohio....during a snow storm! Why did I think it was a good idea to go north in the winter? haha Oh definitely reminded me why we moved south!

Do you wanna build a snowman? *In my Frozen voice.*
I have really been in awe of how grown my children are getting. It makes me happy and sad all at the same time. Sigh. I am really enjoying seeing them grow up, though! This little man of mine is going to be very popular with the ladies...

And just look at this beautiful girl...

Olivia's school had a Father-Daughter Dance, so Daddy had to do it up right!! Olivia felt like Cinderella at the ball!! She smiled the entire night!!!


My day job schedule has changed, so all Sweet Olivia orders will be processed on the following Sunday. Orders will be shipped out via USPS the next day! 

February was a great month for Sweet Olivia sales!! I will soon have a new free eBook for my EMail Newsletter subscribers. Sign up here!
