Welcome and why have I decided to write a Silk Jasmine blog.
Well, a short answer to that, is to bring value to you, on topics I’m passionate about and that resonate with the values and aims of the Silk Jasmine brand. Whilst also hopefully bringing a little humour occasionally to this god damn awful year!
After watching I’m a celebrity get me out of here, I might take up shouting out my happy place whenever I’m stressed out! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, Jordan North one of the contestants found himself in a hideous trial and used the mantra 'happy place, Turf More' to try and calm himself down! By the noises he was making I don’t think it worked, but apparently he’s making lots of money for charity with t-shirts emblazoned with his words flying off the shelves, so that’s fantastic!
What will the blog be about?
Anyway, back to blogging. I hope to bring you useful, read worthy and insightful posts on topics such as sleep (or lack of!) menopause, skin care, benefits of silk, health and wellness and current newsworthy events. So stay tuned.
Who I am?
I can’t believe it’s coming up to 4 months since I launched the Silk Jasmine website. The idea for the business came about in the first lockdown of 2020, when I dusted off my sewing machine, whilst making scrubs for my local hospital - Royal Papworth.
I first fell in love with sewing and creating around seven years ago, when suffering with poor health; I found it really cathartic (and still do). Life then got in the way, as it does sometimes, and I got out of the habit. Making the scrubs made me fall back in love again and I started playing around with my rather huge fabric stash, getting ideas and making srunchies and headbands.
As a lover of all things skincare (I worked as a beauty therapist for over ten years) I’d been reading about the huge benefits of silk for the hair and skin, and that’s where the idea came about for Silk Jasmine.
I now manage the business around my full time job which is split between teaching and working as an ELSA in a primary school. This is quite a juggle I must admit, but I love it!
Take care and keep you and your family safe.
