For me, December is all about the weeks running up to Christmas Day and all the fun & joy of the season that I love so much! Spending time with family and with friends, and so many special events to celebrate the holiday!
Down by the sea side here in Rhode Island, we will be celebrating with a number of customers and friends of JAVA who helped build 2018 into our busiest yet. Just the first week of December, highlights include:
December 5th- Beauty & the Bath 22nd Pajama Party, 5-9PM. Wickford RI
Located in picturesque Wickford RI…this boutique was the very first store to carry JAVA. Come by with a pair of unwrapped pjs to donate. There is also food, fun, raffles and 20% off the whole store.
December 5 & 6th- University of RI Holiday Mall. 10-5pm. South Kingstown, RI
This is a wonderful event for URI students, alumni and staff. Local artisans gather on campus and create a magical shopping wonderland.
December 6th- Inspire Spa Holiday Event. 4-7PM. Narragansett RI
Located in our hometown of Narragansett, come by this fabulous spa: massage therapist Trisha Pimentel is the BEST. She has brought my tired muscles back to life many times. The spa is offering a curated collection of luxurious gifts, spa special pricing (perfect for gift giving) and refreshments.
December 14th & 15th- Sons of Liberty 6th Annual Whiskey Wonderland Bazaar. Friday 5-9PM and Saturday 1-9PM, South Kingstown RI
SOL is an award winning distillery & Brewery. Founder Mike Reppucci and his team have been friends of ours since we began selling JAVA at the Farmers Market located in the same Mill. Local artisans, craft drinks, food and music are bountiful at this event..they also do a barrel tree lighting that is so cool.
We will be adding more events…so keep watching Facebook for all the fun!
Product of the Month – we are delighted to suggest Wonderbar + Body Serum as this year’s holiday gift. The two products are always close to our heart being that they were among our first products created. We will gift wrap them for you, or for you to gift someone else. Free shipping is another gift from us to you this holiday season, that plus a Holiday price leads to almost 35% savings! Come shop now and browse the catalog here.
November is upon us. Thanksgiving with my family is so special too me. A perfect hostess gift like a great bottle of Prosecco, cozy sweaters, and the best food.
My favorite things this month:
Choosing the perfect Hostess Gift. I like to bring a bottle of Prosecco for the party, and, to spoil my hostess, JAVA Skin Care products to enjoy the day after (we all know how stressful it can be to cook the turkey).
MACY’s Day Parade in New York City remains my family’s favorite holiday event. For years and years we have attended the parade…the kids are memorized by the floats. Truth be told so am!
We are thrilled to be chosen again this year to participate in the Made on Honor Market Event for Narragansett Beer on Nov 17&18 at The Guild, Pawtucket RI. This year’s event will be bigger than ever!
The Event will take over the entire campus at The Guild including the Brew House, Packaging Hall, Event Hall, and their brand new Beer Hall with over 65+ vendors. Join us for two full days of holiday shopping, meet the people behind some of OUR favorite brands, and of course, we’ll be drinking plenty of beer. Best part? This event is FREE and open to the public.
Spring is almost here!!! Time to celebrate!
Pretty much everyone knows about St. Patrick’s Day, right? In Rhode Island, we have several annual parades, including one in Newport that becomes quite the all-day into evening party (and we know from experience). You may even be lucky enough to see a leprechaun or two around town.
We also celebrate another holiday that you may not be as familiar with only two days after the Irish party. Its called St. Joseph’s Day, and its kind of like the Italian version of St. Patrick’s Day, with a few differences. Here in Little Rhody, instead of green we wear red and instead of drinking Guinness we eat these amaaaazing Italian pastries called zeppoles. It’s said that everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, and on St. Joseph’s Day we can all be Italian and enjoy the delectable pastries made especially for this holiday.
I guess you can add that to list of things we do or say a little differently in Rhode Island, along with coffee milk (like chocolate milk but better), bubblers (water fountains), and cabinets (milk shakes) to name a few. Happy March from our weird and wonderful state to yours!
At JAVA Skin Care, we are passionate about healthy, clean, non-toxic skin care. Our JAVA team is made up of women who share concerns about products that we all use to keep us clean and comfortable in our own skin.
Follow our blog, “The Perks of JAVA,” in the new year. We will take you on our journey into the world of beauty: how JAVA came about; what we have learned about the beauty industry; who we have partnered with along the way.
We want to introduce you to the ingredients that we use in JAVA Skin Care, share the latest research and provide a history of all-natural skin care. We will also address some of the ingredients we stay away from.
Here at JAVA, we are thrilled to offer all-natural products that are good for all ages – gentle enough for children yet beneficial for older skin.
If you haven’t tried JAVA Skin Care yet, make 2018 the year you do something great for your skin!
