What we've been up to! March 06, 2015 09:48

Its been a very long time since i last blogged, so i thought i would do it with a little update of what we have been up to. We have been very busy working away quietly on lots of little projects and a couple of big ones too. Both equally as fun.

We are currently working with a lovely lady in exeter making lollipops for her shop The Tiny Marmalade Company, who will be including our lollipops in their mothers day gift box, pop along and say hi, she is very friendly, and can be found here http://www.thetinymarmalade.com/shop/4578561003.

We have also had the great honour of making lots of lovely lip lollipops for Bobbi Brown, to launch a new make up range, our lollipops made it into 4 Selfridge's stores, and 3 Brown Thomas, it was very exciting and what a lovely bunch they are!

And our biggest and most exciting project of them all was when i received an email from Warner Music  asking if i could make the "sucker" lollipops for the Charli XCX album launch! It was a huuuuge job, a lot of long days, a lot of sleepless, and 3 extra pairs of hands, but it was amazingly good fun and very messy!

So in all, the last few months has been absolute madness, but i wouldn't change it for the world!


Willow and Boo is now live! September 07, 2014 20:00

Exciting times! 

Today after many weeks of planning, working and tweaking, the Willow and Boo website finally went live, hurrah! I must confess that it was much harder than I ever anticipated but the feedback so far has been so positive. Many thanks for all your kind words :)

So now in between getting orders made and shipped, I can finally dedicate extra time back in the kitchen inventing and creating new scrummy treats, tinkering with flavours, breaking out the glitter and sprinkles.

With the most magical season fast approaching, now is the time to really go mad with snowflakes, stars and getting creative to make some amazing festive lollipops to really make those Christmas parties sparkle.

We are also planning some special promotions in the coming weeks so stay tuned for these.
