How Will You Celebrate Bathtub Party Day?

Today, December the 5th, is National Bathtub Party Day.  Now, before you try and decide what type of cake to make for the tub or go out looking for an oversized party hat, let me tell you that Bathtub Party Day is a day set aside to enjoy your bathtub.  Most days, we all just take a quick shower, wash everything and are done with it.  When was the last time you filled the tub and took a nice relaxing bath?  I know, I can’t remember either.

Well, today is the day to change all that.  Today is the day to pull out the rubber ducky, light some scented candles, fill the tub and relax.  At the very least, today is the day to assemble your “bath kit” and get ready to enjoy your tub time.  I say it’s just in time for the craziness that comes with the holiday season!

And Glynne’s Soaps can help you relax! 

We have the products that will make your bath time extra special.  Here are some things you need to have to enhance your bathtub experience.

Scrubs – with scents to match the bath salts, use these sensuous whipped body scrubs to exfoliate dry skin while you bathe

Soaps – pick out soap in your favorite scent to compliment your bathing experience.

And finally, to get you on your way, here are 6 steps to help you create the perfect tub experience. 

Relax and Enjoy A Glynne's Soaps Bathtub Party

1.  Temperature – The right bath temperature can make all the difference.  The ideal water temperature for a bath is 92 degrees.  When filling the tub, use your wrist as a indicator, not your hand or (as I sometimes do) your toes.  It will give you the best indication of how the water will feel when you are in the tub.

 2.  Body Scrub – Gently massaging your body with an exfoliating scrub can help you relax and keep your mind from worrying about all the things you “should be doing”.  As an added benefit, your skin will be soft and smooth.

 3.  Close your eyes – The best way to achieve true relaxation is by closing your eyes and not focusing on how badly the bathroom floor needs to be cleaned.

4.  Bath Salts – Bath salts are like external muscle relaxants.  They can help reduce inflammation and soreness.  They also will detoxify your skin and increase circulation.

5. Candles – by lighting candles and not using the harsh bathroom lights, you are telling your body and mind to relax instead of the usual morning bathroom get up and go.

6.   Music – Listening to music can aid in the relaxation process.  Just don’t drop your iPod into the tub.

Now go and have a happy Bathtub Party Day.  If you are in need of some “party favors”, head to our website.  We have what you need for yourself or to give someone the gift of a perfect bath experience.  Go directly to buy your bathtub party supplies today using coupon code ‘BathParty’ and get FREE shipping on your entire order!

It’s Never Too Late to Say Thank You

We hope you were able to spend some time this past weekend thanking our veterans, past and present, who have fought to keep America free.  We are truly thankful for their service and sacrifice, and are blessed to live in this country.

Celebrating 11:11 on 11/11/11

This Veteran’s Day had a fun twist because the date was 11/11/11, something that doesn’t come around too often.  Our soap maker, Jenn was pleased because she is that “science and math nerd” sort of person.  We sat down with Wrigley the sales manager and tried to take some pictures at 11:11 on 11/11/11 to commemorate the  historic event.

Is it too late to offer a Veteran’s Day special?  We say “NO!  It’s never to late for a special.”  So, in honor of that, we are offering 11% off everything purchased on our website between now and Friday.  Just use the code “VETERAN” at checkout.

(On another note, if anyone knows where we can buy a Veteran’s Day t-shirt that says “11/11/11” on it for Gayle‘s mom, could you let us know.  She was hoping to find one.)

Thank you

Later this month Glynne’s Soaps turns three years old! As we sit here today writing this to you, we’re amazed at how far we have come! When we lost Franklyn and started to talk about and make soaps we joked that soap would become our full-time gig; neither of us truly believing that we could make it happen. Through the years we have heard from all the skeptics. We have been forced to face our own fears that ‘we couldn’t do it’. We are happy to report that we have survived!

But we have not survived alone!

We wish we could list the throngs of people who have supported our efforts! From the friends who have participated in late night and weekend wrapping parties to help get soaps ready, to those who have manned our booth at events. From those who have put our products in their stores to those who have worked to get our products in stores they frequent. From those who have provided shoulders for us to cry on, to those who knew just when we needed that encouraging call. From our customers who refuse to use anything but Glynne’s Soaps to those customers who recruit their friends to our products.

The past three years have been an incredible journey for us and we owe it all to you! So as Gayle’s Mom says “Thank you! Until you’re better paid!”

Irene, Newsletter & more

Yep, we had a hurricane and for everyone who called, emailed and sent text messages, the soaps are fine! :)

We were closely watching the storm last week and after much deliberation we decided on Friday morning to just ride out the storm here rather than head in-land to Gayle moms near Winston-Salem. It turned out to be a good decision. After a quick trip Friday morning to lay in supplies (i.e. non-perishables and snacks, as well as a few movies and books) we settled in to weather the storm.

As fate would have it, we never lost power! We saw lots of wind and rain but we kept satellite TV and electricity the entire time. Hope you and your family faired as well!

We did send out our newsletter, which we have officially named What’s Bubblin’ at Glynne’s Soaps, on Thursday of last week. In it we talk about the anniversary of the event that started Glynne’s Soaps. In case you missed it, you can read it here.  If you are a subscriber, make sure you white list us glynnesoaps @ gmail . com and watch for What’s bubblin’ at Glynne’s Soaps in your email on the 11th and 25th of each month. If you’re not a subscriber….sign up now by clicking here!

Today seems like any other Monday here are Glynne’s Soaps.

Every Day is a Holiday

There are those people who see Birthdays as a time to morn the passing of their youth. They dread the big day and hide it from anyone and everyone as much as they can. At Glynne’s Soaps, we have a different attitude about Birthdays; we see it as a day to celebrate the fact that you are alive.

Because we believe in celebrating Birthdays Glynne’s Soaps was closed for business yesterday.  It was Gayle’s birthday.  Therefore, we closed up the office, had a nice leisurely morning, spent the afternoon at the NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher (head over to our facebook fan page to see our fun pictures from the Aquarium) and had a great Japanese Hibachi style dinner with a wonderful friend.  Overall, I think it was a day worthy of being called a holiday. 

We are still feeling “in the holiday spirit” this morning, and have decided to have a contest.  Everyone that signs up for our newsletter before January 28th will be entered into a drawing.  (If you are already, a subscriber you too are eligible to win.)  The winner will receive a free “Design Your Own” Sample Stack of our soaps (shipping included). 

Just pop on over to our website, click on the link that says “Sign Up for Our Mailing List”, follow the instructions and you will be entered to win. 

When you sign up, make sure and let us know your birthday.  We will also send you a gift on your special holiday.
