Back in April I was approached by Not On the Highstreet to get involved in their very first ‘physical event’. For those of you who don’t know, NOTHS are an online marketplace who provide a selling platform for all sorts of small and creative businesses. We have been selling through them since the early days in 2012 and they have become an amazing outlet for us.
This Saturday (27th February) I will be spending the day at the lovely Great Yorkshire Shop in Leeds.
Situated in the beautiful Corn Exchange building, this is a relatively new store that opened its doors to the public in November. Started by Aeneas Brewster, the shop only sells things that have been made in Yorkshire. When we were approached with a view to supplying them with our products, we didn’t need to think twice, as it is such a great concept.
In this blog, I’m going to tell you a little bit about our Soothing Skin Cream.
It was formulated, developed and tested by our very own Managing Director, Cecily Fearnley. Having suffered from Eczema herself from late teens and into her early 20s, she had tried just about everything to try and sooth her problem skin. She noticed that there were a few products that were helping slightly, but not clearing the problem entirely. Cecily decided to cherry pick the beneficial ingredients that alleviated her dry/itchy skin and formulate a new product which contained all of those wonderfully soothing elements

One of the first things most people do when I bring up the topic of natural skincare is grab whatever hand cream or moisturiser they have in their bag and ask me to look through the ingredients.

Hello and welcome to our brand new website. We’ve added some really great new features, so let me give you a quick tour…
A couple of weeks ago we posted a competition on our Facebook page asking for your help in picking a new lip balm flavour, (i’ll talk about this in more detail in a little bit) we have so far had a great response, and also, a great subsequent outcome
First of all let me wish all of my customers, suppliers, friends and family a very merry christmas and peaceful new year. 2012 has been a huge year for not only Sweet Cecily’s but many people involved
After a week off work with what can only be described as a virus that makes you feel more tired than you could imagine feeling, I ended up having a very exciting Sunday.
I was thinking this week about how this whole project would not have been possible without so many people getting involved and being supportive both physically and mentally. It reminded me of a blanket I knitted a couple of winters ago for a friend’s baby.
