SkinnyDip

A wonderful view out of the office window this morning! Almost worth getting out of a warm, cosy bed for.

Fancy a free SkinnyDip lip balm?!

Here’s the deal: I’d desperately love some customer reviews for the new SkinnyDip website. Email me a sentence or two about a SkinnyDip cream and I’ll pop a free lip balm in the post to say ‘thank you’.

So if you could write a few words about our hand or face creams, then email me at Emma@Skinny-dip.co.uk with:
- The name of the product (eg, Butter Fingers)
- What you think about it (a short sentence of two)
- A star rating out of 5 (1 being bad, 5 being good)
- The address I should email the lip balm to

Lots of love, Emma x

Any excuse for more naked bottoms….
You may remember over 400 extremely brave and utterly naked people taking a dip on the beautiful Welsh Gower back on Midsummer’s day. All in the name of breaking the Guinness World Record for SkinnyDipping.
Well no news yet on the World Record, but they have raised a cracking £22,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care. The top fundraiser, Emma Ireland, has alone raised £1,340 and she’ll receive a nice bundle of SkinnyDip all wrapped up with oodles of respect.
What a brilliant bunch. And hat’s off to organiser Alison, from whose email I learned how to type a bottom, hee hee!    (_I_)

Another plumtastic bank holiday at the Pershore Plum Festival. 

A big THANK YOU to all the loyal SkinnyDippers out there who came to say ‘hello’ and how really rather lovely to meet so many new people, including Mr Plum (talk to his stalk, not to his face!).

Our marzipan flavoured, Spiced Plum & Vanilla lip balm definitely has the love-it-or-hate-it factor. Marzipan hell or marzipan heaven: someone even suggested I make a marmite version, but that is just plain wrong!

It’s the Moreton In Marsh show this Saturday and I’ll be SkinnyDipping in the green living and self sufficiency area (Brigit Strawbridge will be there talking bees… I’m sooo excited).

I’ll also be demonstrating how I make some of our wonderful products… but what to make? I’m still scratching my head about that one.

The Moreton In Marsh Show. Saturday 3rd September.

My early morning visit to the spring put a smile on my face. Malvhina was adorned with the most beautiful array of flowers.
Absolutely stunning!

Absolutely stunning! 

Aren’t they just adorable?! Some little soap hearts that we’ve sent to The Farm Florist in Yorkshire so their customers can sniff until their hearts are content.
All together, awwwww!

SkinnyDip Summer Work Experience

We’re on the lookout for student to help us with the filming and editing of some short videos for the website during July and August. It’d be fab CV or portfolio experience for an ITC, media, business or film studies student (all other disciplines welcome too) and there is also cash involved!

We’re not looking for anything theatrical, but creativity, reliability and professionalism are very welcome. 

If you know an A level or university student or recent graduate who might be interested, nudge them to email emma@skinny-dip.co.uk and I’ll send them a full role profile.

And, please do manage their expectations; the only SkinnyDipping happening will be the making of cream!

A little treat from our compost heap; literally hundreds of sunny calendula plants without us even planting a seed. And I couldn’t be happier (although I’m sure the courgettes, peas, broccalli and fennel could).

These sunshine flowers are wonderfully soothing for sensitive skin - I used them to help my daughter’s eczema way back in the days before SkinnyDip. So everyday, we grab our scissors, harvest and dry the flowers ready to make some delicious potions.   

World Record Breaking SkinnyDipping!
Well they only went and did it! 408 SkinnyDippers raising over £14,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care on the glorious Gower Penisular on Sunday.
Hats (and pants) off to them. Especially organiser Alison Powell.
