Well the nights have got darker and it’s definitely a lot more wet and windy. I love this time of year where everything starts to get ready to hibernate. The leaves are a gorgeous variety of colours. I think it’s the perfect time to snuggle at home with a hot chocolate, some snacks and a film. My kids are a bit too young for a film yet but love a good snuggle and books, and to be honest I couldn’t stop them from snacking if I tried!

Business wise I’ve had to invest in a dehumidifier so my products can dry without activating, I’m super happy with it, it’s amazing! I’ve managed to make a load of different batches without them activating and becoming my own personal stash ๐Ÿ˜

You may have noticed I’ve been a bit quieter on socials as I have been really busy trying to make lots and lots of stock for the Christmas Markets that are coming up. These have been the cause of a lot of sleepless nights worrying that I won’t have enough stock and will end up letting people down. Then when I manage to calm that anxiety I swing the other way and worry I am going to have way way too much stock and nobody will want to buy my products ๐Ÿ™ˆ

When I am awake I realise how silly my head is being and that of course I won’t end up with all my stock left as, let’s be honest they are amazing ๐Ÿ˜ As a special for the Christmas fairs I’m doing I have also go Gift Boxes that will be available and Mini Bath bombs that will be perfect little stocking fillers. Please pop by and say hello if you can go to any of the fairs I am going to, it would be lovely to see you all.

With the new year looming I have been taking stock and thinking about my business and where I want to be in the next twelve months. I have so many exciting plans with new products and new fragrances that I want to add. But it begs the question… What would you like to see? After all the whole purpose of Self a Steam is to provide products that help you stop and make time for you ๐Ÿ˜ if there is anything you fancy please pop me a message and I will see what I can do.

Bye for now x
