MERRY CHRISTMAS: thank you from Nancy & the MyShowcase team

About Us page component.


So another year is about to come to a close, and it’s feeling quite Christmassy as I write this post with a pair of fingerless mittens on, the temperature having nosedived and the promise of a weather bomb (with snow) heading our way. Priority for me at this point is building a first line defence against skin dryness – I’ve cracked open the night oil and body lotion in anticipation of the central heating doing its worst – and corralling a new roster of beauty brands for next spring: I’m especially excited about that and we will be revealing all soon, but in the meantime I’m celebrating the awesome year we’ve just had at MyShowcase. My highlights? There are many, and perhaps the biggest one of all is yet to come (keep an eye on London’s biggest billboards ladies over the next few weeks!), but among my top 5 best bits of 2014 are these (in no particular order):

  • The Scottish trip: Nancy and I drove to East Lothian to recruit new Stylists living in the Edinburgh area, and stayed at Archerfield House, a beautiful hotel/spa/golf resort. We were even lucky enough to have a facial from one of our favourite aromatherapists, Rebecca O’Connor, founder of Beatitude, who practises at the spa. It was a whirlwind tour, but huge fun to meet new Stylists – the Scottish arm of the family!
  • The new Stylists: definitely one of the best bits about MyShowcase is our growing community – and the family sized up this year. I’ve loved meeting new recruits – from all over the UK and of course Spain, and we all really look forward to Stylist training days when we get a chance to catch up with you and hear how your businesses are growing over lunch at the Club House.
  • New faces in the office: and then there were 9 – or 10! The desks are filling up at MyShowcase HQ and it’s been lovely to see new people come on board this year.
  • MyShowcase in the press: we have been supported by some fantastic press coverage this year in all manner of mags from Woman & Home to the weekend supplements. Next year we will be hitting the papers even more and there will be a particularly big splash in the new year as we continue our campaign to recruit new Stylists who want to run their own flexible beauty businesses. Keep your eyes skinned – especially when you are in Central London.

So I’d like to wish everyone – especially our wonderful Stylists and customers – a very happy Christmas and the cheeriest New Year. 2015 is going to be a big one for MyShowcase – get ready!
