It is here that you will find all my thoughts, findings and musings on all things skincare related. I shall be adding hints and tips on keeping your skin in tip top condition. I shall share with you the findings of further research into natural skincare. I will post my thoughts and feelings on the ethics of the products and the skincare industry as I find it.

techie heaven

Category: merionwen's musings

The techie team at Merionwen Towers are happy bunnies today.

We have taken delivery of some exciting new equipment. Funded by the hugely successful crowdfunder pitch.

Chief tech wizard, the barefooted one, is busy unloading and positioning. He is itching and waiting to get his paws on the tech and make it do his bidding. Unfortunately, it is the middle of the working day and he will have to wait just a few short hours until he can play.

We have become the proud owners of a silhouette cameo and a spanking new laser printer. This exciting new addition will enable us to keep all packaging and labels in house. Affording us the luxury of entire control. We don't have to conform to standard shapes or colour, and will be able to do justice to the remarkable and wonderful designs provided by the talented Ann Lewis. Square labels? Pah! We laugh in the face of normal!

This weekend we are planning a marathon photography session. I consider myself very lucky that even this can be done to a professional standard in house. There is clearly no limit to the barefoot one's talents! Heck, he can even put together the perfect sarnie, and his tea is the business.

So a big hurrah for the Barefoot boy. Techie wizard, accounts manager, chief guinea pig, photographer and tea boy. What a guy!

the future is bright

Category: merionwen's musings

Here at Merionwen Towers things are going at a pace. The primary safety assessments are in place, the challenge testing is going great, the formulating is inspired and of course the products are filling the shelves.

I am looking forward to the official launch of the on line shop. This is scheduled for the 14th July. Vouchers for the crowdfunder investors will be issued upon the same day. I plan to break these down into manageable chunks of £10 and £20, with the 20% addition. Of course if those of you who have more than one voucher wish to use them all at once that is fine, but I would not wish you to feel you had to spend it all at once.

The stock shelves smell heavenly and I hope to share it with you all in the near future. I must say, I'm rather excited!

I would love to hear from you. Any requests are welcome.

In the fullness of time I shall also be offering a bespoke consultation for your skincare. I shall endeavour to assist where I can and provide you with optimum skincare while keeping your ethics intact.

welcome to the blog

Category: merionwen's musings

Hello and welcome to the all new Merionwen blog.

It is here that you will find all my thoughts, findings and musings on all things skincare related. I shall be adding hints and tips on keeping your skin in tip top condition. I shall share with you the findings of further research into natural skincare. I will post my thoughts and feelings on the ethics of the products and the skincare industry as I find it. I shall entertain you with my adventures in the Merionwen lab and now and again I shall even share with you the odd recipe or two.

It is my honour and privileged to be able to share with you the path to wonderful skincare.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank those who have assisted me in my quest to reach this point.

Thank you to Andrew Howard for his assistance and expertise in building this beautiful website. I also owe him heartfelt thanks for his unfailing belief in me, not to mention his willingness to be my primary guinea pig. He seems to take great delight in making himself available to be smothered in creams, lotions and potions. He never complains and is open and honest with constructive advice.

Thank you to Ann Lewis for her inspired artistic vision. She has a true and remarkable talent and I feel very lucky that she has shared it with me.

Thank you to Star Khechara, and the school of holistic cosmetology. A truly inspirational mentor who has given me the confidence, training and knowledge to be able to make my dream a reality.

Last but by no means least, thanks also goes to every one of my customers past, present and future. You are all WONDERFUL!
