Hi Absoluters - wow, November has flown by! It’s been a busy, brilliant month for me, and I’m definitely looking forward to some relaxation over the Christmas period.

This month I took part in a very exciting photoshoot with some of our very own Absoluters! It was just so wonderful to see these gorgeous ladies strutting their stuff - I won’t give too much away but do keep your eyes peeled for the final photos, as I’m sure you’re going to absolutely love them as much as I do.

And of course, you all know how much I adore meeting Absoluters in person, so it was so much fun chatting with these amazing women and hearing their stories throughout the day - can’t wait to do more shoots like this in the future.

It was a big month for awards, too - I’m thrilled and humbled to reveal that I won THREE awards in November! I won silver in two categories at the National Business Women’s Awards, and was also named as the Midlands Regional Winner in the Health and Wellbeing Entrepreneur of the Year category at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. I want to dedicate these awards to you, the amazing Absoluter community - without you, there is no Absolute Collagen, and everything I do is for you guys.

It was especially amazing to attend the awards with Margot and Darcy - we had a girls’ weekend in London and I just loved celebrating and spending time with them (and taking plenty of selfies!)

Another highlight of the month was our warehouse party. Due to the growth of Absolute Collagen, we actually outgrew our original warehouse space and have been working hard behind the scenes to get our new (bigger!) space ready to pack and ship all your lovely AC goodies. In November, the new warehouse was ready - so we had a party to celebrate! We had a great time, we played games and there was even a pizza truck! It was fantastic to celebrate Team AC’s achievements and christen our brand new warehouse - loved it!

Looking ahead to Christmas, who’s got their decorations up already? I’m so excited to announce that this year we’re offering exclusive Absolute Collagen subscription gift cards so you can treat your loved ones to the gift of AC. Each gift card gives them one month for free (and if you’re lucky enough to receive more than one, just call the fabulous Customer Service team to activate any subsequent cards).

Of course, with Christmas just round the corner, we’re all looking forward to the AC Christmas party! It’s been such a big year for Team AC and I’m excited for us all to get our sparkle on and spend some time together celebrating - stay tuned for the photos!!
