Hey guys! What a week its been! I have been coming to terms with what happened to my beautiful home state.. But thats another topic, which I will be writing about tonight. On a lighter note, Giana was brought lots of smiles via my local post office and a Independent Scentsy Director, Theo.
I know, I know, I am actually writing a blog during the day.. weird, huh?
Theo sent me a Scentsy buddy for Giana named Ollie. Theo shipped this Scentsy Buddy to me, all the way from another country, and got it to me within FOUR DAYS! Thats crazy quick. Thanks Theo!
Right away, I was impressed with the Scentsy buddy Ollie, when he/she came out of the box. I asked Giana if Ollie was a boy or girl and she is going through a weird "boys are weird and I am embarassed to be friends with them" phase, especially since a little neighbor boy has a crush on her. So naturally Ollie would HAVE to be a girl.. ( DUH MOM! )
The box she came in, reminds me of Build-A-Bear sooo much., It had these neat little cut outs to makea handle, and punch holes so he can "breathe". Cute, right? He also has a "front door". Whats neat is, were this a birthday/Christmas/ you fill-in-the-blank gift, you would recieve your Buddy in the mail, and then, make the box "buddy-friendly" And you really wouldnt even have to wrap it. I am a horrible present/gift wrapper so that works out perfect for me!!!
The Scentsy buddy is special in that it has a zip up pocket in it's back where you place a scent sachet in.
The scent Giana and I picked out and eventually ordered is Pima Cottom, I thought it would pleasant because I love jasmine. It does smell really nice too! I had a hard time choosing between scents though.
The other Scentsy buddies. Frog, Lion, Monkey, Elephant, Pig, Lamb
What Giana thought: "I think it smells good and I want to keep the box it came in. I think I want to rename her Rapunzel because her trunk is so long. I like the Scentsy buddy because she is pretty and she is just right size for me. She is soft to snuggle with at night too. I love sleeping with her."
What I thought: Ollie was very cute. I like that she (Ollie?Rapunzel?) smells good, and that when she stops smelling good, you can "refresh her" with even, if you like- a different scent. I think that is a very new & different idea for toys. I like that the scent pak lasts about 5 months.
Recommended? Yes! So cute and lovable. The design of the animals arms and legs have breathable spaces for letting the scent come through. Its not too strong as to be overwhelming or irritating to your child. But even I felt relaxed by this little guy. Ooops, girl. My bad! My best friend came over to keep my littlest, Devonny, while I toured a local Montessori school. When I came back, her little girl (in my Girl Extraoidinaire blog post last week) was playing with it. I was telling her (mom, my best friend) about it and she said, "Jeez! I wondered why her hands smelled so good, I thought it was a new hand soap!" She liked it, actually they both did!
Room for improvement? Not really! There could be a wider variety of animals, such as owl, turtle, cat, dog, raccoon, bear.. etc ect...
ABOUT THEO & SCENTSY
Theo is a wife, a Mom, a business owner and a Montessori tecaher
She joined Scentsy in Nov.2009, without any intention of making it a business. She has always loved scented candles, however, she couldn't use them as much as she wanted to because of her young kids, and she also worried that she may forget to blow out a candle. When she found Scentsy , she thought, "what a great idea!". A safe alternative to burning candles.
Building her Scentsy business started in April, 2010. Today, Theo is an Independent Sales Director. Her team is constantly growing and spreads across U.S, Canada and most recently the U.K.
She believes the secret to her success is that she has the best team and the most awesome customers.
She also blogs about working from home here; www.earningwax.com
